Creating a stickytab table
Apr 10, 2013
I've been wrestling with one screen for a few weeks now and haven't come up with a solution. Here's a draft of the screen. It's supposed to guide learners in deciding whether they have time to take on another commitment. It includes a table (an open schedule) and four different-coloured stickytabs along the top -- one for work, family, fitness, and other. My idea was that the learner would click on a stickytab to select it, then click on the boxes in the table, and they'd fill with that colour. Once the learner finished one category, he/she'd do the next one, until the table was filled with his/her current time commitments.
I tried doing this with layers (move to the layer when the learner clicks on a tab) and states (squares in the table fill when the learner clicks on them), but once the learner leaves a layer to go to the next one, then all the coloured squares on the table disappear. It's not cumulative. So the layers idea won't work.
There must be a better way to do this, and I'm sure it's obvious, but I can't see it.
Thanks for any ideas.
