=== Summary ===
{{ Moved To Community | KDE_Visual_Design_Group/HIG/SOU Workspace/Edit List }}
The user has to select from a pool of items or options. What items are displayed and their order or sequence may have some relevance to the user.
In some cases this list must be accessed on a regular basis, on others very rarely.
=== Solution ===
Determine when the user will need to access the pool of available items.
If the typical user in a typical context will need to know what items are selected, but is unlikely to add or remove items from the list, use [[../Picker Dialog|Picker Dialog]].
''Example where most users won't change the selection regularly but may want to see which items are selected for reference. Currently implemented with a checkbox-list of all available items. A Picker would allow to see all selected items without scrolling''
If it is likely that the items will be changed on a regular basis, use [[../Two Lists with Arrow Buttons|Two Lists with Arrow Buttons]].

''Example where the list is only displayed when it is changed. A picker would only mean an additional step here without any benefit.''
