Left Sidebar Menu design with hierarchy

Current scenario: I’ve a webapp, in which there is a left sidebar. There are some menuItems and subMenuItems in sidebar. This hierarchy can go to N level. enter image description here New Requirement: Now There can be multiple programs in this application. User can switch program at any time. Each program has some menuAreas. User can also switch between menuAreas. Each menuArea has its own list of menuItems (and subMenuItems in hierarchy). At a time, User can only see menuItems for selected program and menuArea. These menuItems should appear at same place where current menuItems appear. Can anyone suggest UX for this scenario?

Placement of Help button: left or right to OK/Cancel

I’m adding help to a Windows desktop application that is being in use since the Windows XP era. All the modal dialogs display the typical OK/Cancel button set placed at the bottom right as shown in this example/placeholder screenshot (in fact no MessageBox has a Help button):

enter image description here

I wish to cause minimal confusion to my users after the next release that’s why I hesitate to place the Help button right to the Cancel button. The standardized order shown by the Win32 MessageBox function when called with MB_OKCANCEL | MB_HELP in the uType parameter would shift the already existing buttons to right (replacing OK by Cancel and Cancel by Help) like this:

enter image description here

I searched the web for this, but it turned out to be very hard to get useful answers when combining help, button, and placement, nevertheless I found some screenshots with help buttons bottom left which looks good and useful from my POV.

Where should I place the Help button to the dialogs of an old-fashioned application?

Should I use a left aligned scroll bar?

Usually, users expect scroll bars to be at the right side of the content they want to scroll. My page menu is located on the left side of the page however and is intended to be scrolled separately (navigations layout looks like roughly like this.

Can I risk putting my scroll bar left to the menu instead of right? It might make my page layout more balanced (one progress bar to the left, one to the right). I wonder if users would feel too unconfortable with it though so I went here.

SharePoint List Formatting; Float Left, 31 Items, Displays 10

When using this sample: https://github.com/SharePoint/sp-dev-list-formatting/blob/master/view-samples/document-library-thumbnails/document-library-thumbnails.json

All items should display as formatted and have paging. However, when the list has 31 items, using the formatting from the sample, the number of items displayed will always be no more than 10, no paging available. All works as expected when the list has 30 or fewer items. If the list has 31 or more, only 10 items will be displayed. I can remove one item, refresh, and then all works as expected. Add one more item, refresh, and the view will only show 10. Setting the root element style > float:none, save, refresh, will show all items again. Switching back to style > float:left will trigger the 10 item limit.

Has anyone else encountered this? Here is my JSON for the custom list formatting:

Unable to remove left navigation from a SharePoint Page. (Do not want to remove it from the site.)

I have a SharePoint Online page created with a template, which I cannot remove the left navigation pane from. (I can edit the list of links, but I want to remove the whole pane completely.)

I’ve tried to follow tutorials online suggesting I add a Content Editor Webpart and include scripts that will remove the left pane, however I don’t have the option to add a Content Editor Webpart on this page. (It doesn’t show the ribbon for the page, so only have the “Add A New Webpart” plus sign in the middle of the page to work with.)

I’ve even copied this webpage to a test site, and changed the site layout to Oslo, rather than Seattle, however the left navigation still shows.

Ideally I would like to remove the left navigation panel from this page only. Not from the entire site.

Thank you for any assistance you can provide.

Search bar – Top Nav vs Left Nav? Which is better suited?

In the search bar which experience is better? That is having a left nav or navigation below/above the search bar.

a - Swift Type

b - Google

Cons for the top nav: Scalability wise left nav works the best.

I’ve seen many websites like google.com, bing.com, yahoo.com, algolia, etc. have navigation below the search. In a few other websites like swiftype, atlassian, etc. have the left navigation.

By experience wise which is better and why?

Are there any Chosen left in Faerûn following the Second Sundering?

Throughout Toril’s history, its various deities have engaged in a practice of vesting mortals with power and purpose. Those mortals are sometimes called Chosen. The Sword Coast Adventurer’s Guide contains a number of references to Chosen — including their involvement in tumultuous events during the Second Sundering. See, e.g., p. 17 (“Throughout this period, tales began to spread of individuals who had been touched by the gods and granted strange powers. Some of these so-called Chosen were at the root of the conflicts that grip the land.”)

A couple of SCAG‘s references might be read to suggest that, after the Second Sundering, Chosen might have become a thing of the past. To wit:

  • p. 9, a description of an uprising in Calimshan led by a Chosen of Ilmater notes that the Chosen disappeared and that “[m]any pray for the return of the Chosen and the completion of his work.”
  • p. 12, a discussion of Mulhorand says “the Chosen of the gods began to appear in the last few years,” and then a few sentences later mentions that “the upheaval ended and the Chosen began to disappear . . . .”
  • p. 18, detailing the year 1489 D.R., notes that by then “the deities ceased interfering with the world through their Chosen. The gods were no longer silent but quiet, and in many places new priesthoods arose to interpret the gods’ now subtle signs.”
  • p. 45, a story about the grisly revelation “[j]ust a few years ago” that

None of these references mention any Chosen currently active in Faerûn. Several of them strongly imply that certain Chosen disappeared and have not reappeared.

Is there any evidence in first-party published materials that the Chosen are still a phenomenon in the post-Second Sundering world?

Calcluate Mesh top, bottom, left and right position relative to mouse click position on the mesh

I have a mesh (suppose it can be circle, or rectangular,square or an arc). The geometry of the mesh can be anything. I can click on mesh at any position. From relative to the clicked position, I want to get its right, left top and bottom position of the mesh. Maybe the picture explain it better then my words enter image description here
