< Projects | Usability | HIGRevision as of 10:23, 25 October 2013 by Htietze (talk | contribs)(diff) ← Older revision | Latest revision (diff) | Newer revision → (diff) Purpose The accordion (in Qt also known as tool box) provides a column of tabbed panels. Similar to tabs only a single item is shown at once. Example Guidelines Is this the right control Use an accordion for content with mutually exclusive views. That might be a calculator with simple vs. scientific vs. statistical layout, or a digital vs. analog clock, for instance. Do not use an accordion to structure content by default. Rather use a list view with associated pages or tabs. Consider to replace the accordion by another control since KDE makes very rarely use of this type of navigation. Behavior Do not mix the accordion with other types of navigation on the same level. Do not use more than one accordion in your application because it is clutter prone. Make sure that accordion contains of at least one panel. Do not add more than five panels to an accordion. Appearance Each panel must contain a panel header with descriptive label. Do not use icons in panel headers.
