We surveyed you (our users) to clarify your UI / UX needs. Some interesting findings were summarized in our ‘User Interface Insights‘ blog.
In our 11 | 6 release, we delivered some of what you asked for such as the ability to resize fonts and ui controls. We also overhauled form controls to match current design trends and take advantage of CSS3 features like box shadows and transitions.
The next phase is coming in 11.1 | 6.1. We’re adding a new skin called ‘Tahoe‘. As you can see in the sneak peek below, it is flat, square, modern, beautiful … and blue.
Our grids have gotten more updates than we can list. Some of the highlights are:
- Flat, square look and feel
- Modern heading bar, fonts and colors
- Cool new scroll bars
- Subtle horizontal and vertical banding to keep data in context (Note: hard to see on screen grabs added to this blog)
- Flattened icons
New look and feel for sorting, editing and other states:
New calendar / date picker:
… and much, much, more that we’ll share in our next post.
Graphs and Charts
With Tahoe, our charts get the modern, flat treatment, too. They’ve also been reformatted to make the legends more readable, separate out the header, and get all wrapped in a tidy container. Here are a few examples:
