Using Web widgets wisely, Part 2
By Jodi Bollaert - 2004-03-19 Page:  1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10

Conclusion and Resources

This article describes a sampling of Web widgets that can be created or enhanced with scripts. A final point to consider is consistency. Consistency is a very big deal when it comes to usability. While client-side scripts can allow developers to create or enhance Web widgets, there are still standard GUI guidelines to consider and a need to develop internal guidelines specific to the Web site or application you may be building. Users should only have to learn once how a cascading navigation menu or a scripted submit button works. Creating an interaction design style guide as part of your project can help communicate these guidelines to all members of your team and help ensure consistency across your Web site.
