Placement of edit and delete buttons for dynamic table

The application I am working on has dynamic tables that gets longer as the user adds more objects. The user is able to edit the properties of these objects and/or delete them.

I’m quite confident of the button placement being on top of the table rather than the bottom (if it was on the bottom, the buttons would move along with the table getting longer which may get quite annoying). However, I’m unsure of the ordering of the button and whether they should be separated (to avoid accidentally deleting).

Are required indicators necessary for radio buttons?

Simple question, is an required field indicator (ex. *) necessary when presenting a set of a radio buttons in a form?

Caveat, one radio button will be already pre-selected.

example

Technically the field question is indeed required, but does the fact that one selection is always selected negate the need to visually indicate that it is required?

How to fix HOME and END buttons in Bash with ANSI prompt?

In bash, whenever I have a prompt with ANSI color codes, it messes up the HOME and END functionality. Is there an obvious fix for this?

To re-create:

PS1="\e[0;33m\u@\e[m $   " echo "This is a very long sentence to demonstrate what im talking about" (press UP) (press HOME) 

See where the cursor ends up?

  • This is a remote login. Is this an SSH problem? Doesn’t seem to be. I’ve tried numerous SSH terminals and VNC from both Mac and PC, all giving same results….

Do disabled buttons still need to be contrast compliant for accessibility?

Very related to this question: Accessible Disabled State but that is about how to style disabled buttons to make them accessibility compliant, but my question is slightly different.

Is it actually an accessibility requirement for disabled features to be contrast compliant?

You are not hiding functionality from visually impaired people by making it grey on grey because the feature is unavailable to everyone, so they are not missing out on features because of this. Yes, it’s always better for everything to be contrast compliant, but that might not be relevant here.

The situation is this – we have to disable features of our web application when the system is undergoing scheduled maintenance. Therefore we don’t want to remove the buttons altogether because we want the user to know that the feature is only temporarily unavailable. Additional messaging is provided on the page stating that some features are unavailable.

We designed a standard inactive state button (dark grey text on lighter grey button background) but it has come back to us with the concern that it may be failing DDA compliance. However I disagree with that concern for the reasons I state above. Am I mistaken, or is it OK to have grey-on-grey buttons for such situations?

Note: I’m not looking for any alternative solutions (leave that to the linked questions) my query is specifically about whether or not this is an accessibility concern.

I want to bind home/end buttons to alt+up/down, it works partialy

I am using:

xdotool getactivewindow key End

xdotool getactivewindow key Home

The problem is, when I am using atom editor it doesn’t work at all. The cursor doesn’t move. In google docs too, instead of moving type cursor to the begining or the end of the line it moves it to the begining or the end of the doccument (control + home/end normally does that). It works everywhere else.

Localize action buttons

I’ve been working on a mobile project. One of the planned customer requirement is the branding colors which may be applied to the product one example is color in the header.

My question is How can I localize the button design that will appear neutral from different customers branding color

Thanks
