UI Patterns, User Interface Design Pattern Library

UI Patterns, the user interface design pattern library, is a collection of common UI elements that has explanations of the key components and functions of each along with multiple examples.

Here’s a list of a few of the UI elements covered:

  • Input Feedback
    The user has entered input into the system and expects to receive feedback on the result of the submission
  • Tag Cloud
    The user wants to browse content by popularity or most elaborate topic
  • Pagination
    The user needs to view a subset of sorted data that is not easily displayed on one page.
  • Continuous Scrolling
    The user needs to view a subset of data that is not easily displayed on a single page (alternative to pagination)
  • Tag
