=== Summary ===
+
{{ Moved To Community | KDE_Visual_Design_Group/HIG/SOU Workspace/Rich Lists }}
 
+
Rich lists provide more information than just an item's name. They can be used for selection or manipulation of objects.
+
 
+
=== Solution ===
+
 
+
Ask the following questions:
+
 
+
1. Is the main purpose for the rich list to select items for an action to be performed on them later (e.g. by clicking a global action button)?
+
* If yes, ask the second question
+
* If not, use the [[#Rich Manipulation List|Rich Manipulation List]]
+
 
+
2. Can the user make an informed selection based on icon/preview, title and two lines of description?
+
* If yes, use the [[#Rich Selection List|Rich Selection List]]
+
* If she wight need more information, use the [[#Rich Manipulation List|Rich Manipulation List]]
+

''Rich Manipulation list with modal buttons, split buttons, collapsed and expanded items.''
+
 
+
 
+
All elements of a rich list (beyond the item's name) are optional and should only be used if necessary information for the user. The elements of the list are (from left to right):
+
 
+
* Right arrow icon indicating if additional information box is collapsed or expanded (only needed if additional information is available).
+
 
+
* Icon representing the item or a graphical preview. Icons or images are optional; be sure to use only if each item has a discrete icon/preview.
+
 
+
* Item name.
+
 
+
* Short description of item (below item name). Include a description that is more telling than the title. The maximum length is two lines of text.
+
 
+
* Additional information (below short description and hidden until item is expanded). A longer description or long meta information etc that is more than two lines of text. It is not advised to go beyond six lines of text.
+
 
+
* Action/Split button(s)
+
** If there are two related and mutually exclusive actions, display them in one modal button
+
** If there are two actions that are not mutually exclusive, use two action buttons
+
** If there are three or more actions that are not mutually exclusive, use a split button
+
** Action buttons execute the action immediately

''Rich Selection List with checkboxes and info buttons''
+
 
+
All elements of a rich list (beyond the item's name) are optional and should only be used if necessary information for the user. The elements of the list are (from left to right):
+
 
+
* [[../Checkbox|Checkbox]] or [[../Radio Button|radio button]] (only select; an action is only performed when a global action button is clicked}
+
 
+
* Icon representing the item or a graphical preview. Icons or images are optional; be sure to use only if each item has a discrete icon/preview.
+
 
+
* Item name.
+
 
+
* Short description of item (below item name). Include a description that is more telling than the title. The maximum length is two lines of text.
+
 
+
* Information Button (i). Use to display additional information in a separate window.
+
 
+
 
+
Below the list there is at least one button to perform an action using the selected item(s).
+
 
+
If you need the possibility to display more information or other actions than selection, use a [[#Rich Manipulation List|Rich Manipulation List]].
+
