modal screen design

Let's say you have a modal "Create new document" screen. In iOS, you would have a bar at the top with on the left a Cancel button, in the middle the title, and on the right a Create button. Both buttons pop the current page from the view stack. Other actions would be placed on a toolbar at the bottom. These actions don't pop the current view. This distinction is visually clear.


I understood that in Cascades the idea is to have all buttons at the bottom, close to the thumb. So, do all these buttons go on the bottom bar? Or should I use that bar only for non-popping actions, and place the pop actions in a container just above that? What is the preferred way to do this?

Re: modal screen design

User Interface Guidelines give a decent outline of the infrastructure.




Action Items go on the bottom of the screen with overflow going on the right hand side. Context menu is usefult too.


Hope this helps you make progress.
