      Yep, that's it, I'm glad someone else have "patternized" it already.

        Thanks, I'd see this as a mini pattern, linked to a search pattern.

          Thanks, it is now fixed. I should go through the links more often.

            @Nancy I haven't seen a pattern for this problem in any design pattern collection. But we just introduced our Private Libraries concept, which means now you could write the pattern by yourself and use it in your private design pattern collection ;)

                  Thanks for the idea. I think we have a pattern for this already. Actually, we have two: "Refining search" and "Data table".

                    Maybe administration page could be a "framework" of patterns. As I wrote earlier, the pattern would be too general in nature, but if it would be a framework, a set of patterns, it would make more sense. It would contain for example Information Dashboard pattern, and all the other patterns that are needed to create an admin page.

                    We actually have something like this in our plans. But more about that later ;)

                    jannelAdminjannel (Admin, Patternry) commented  · 

                    I see writing a good administration page pattern quite tricky. Dashboards are always rather similar in nature, but administration pages vary a lot depending on the type of the application. If the pattern is too general, it is not useful to anyone, and if I write a pattern for a specific type of application (for example e-commerce), I think it would be too detailed for our library.

                    I need to think about this a bit more. Thanks for the idea!

                      Thanks for the suggestion. The first question that came to my mind was Is this a single pattern or a "framework" of patterns? I see this as a combination of "Information Dashboard", "Module Tabs", and some other patterns. Other opinions?

                        I really like this, but touch devices are currently out of our scope. When we some day expand to that world, this will be at the top of our list. Thanks!

                          I actually prefer this over "endless scrolling". Thanks for the idea, let's see when this gets patternized.

                              I think I know what you mean, but this is not my strongest area and I think I'm not the right guy to write a pattern about this. But we will soon allow everyone to add patterns, maybe someone else reads this and patternizes your idea!

                                      We already have "Same-Page Feedback Messages" pattern already, but I'm plannng to chunk it to smaller patterns in the future to make it more useful. Now it is a bit too general.

                                          Thanks for the idea. Yes, please let us know how you solved this design problem.

                                          Btw., if you are creating a social networking site, you might find Designing Social Interfaces-pattern library interesting: http://www.designingsocialinterfaces.com/patterns.wiki/index.php?title=Main_Page

                                            I understand your point, but I still think that writing a pattern for this problem would be too general, and thus not useful for the designer. The designer needs to have have domain experience, and if not, he is in trouble and design patterns won't rescue him.

                                            If the main audience of this pattern library would be people who design issue forms for manufacturing companies, I could write a very specific "form preview" pattern that would be useful to them (actually, that would be more like a storyboard rather than a design pattern). But, I don't see this kind of pattern applicable in other contexts.

                                            If you have suggestions for best practices for this pattern, please post them here. I'll write a form preview pattern if it can be "patternized".

                                            Thanks for the suggestion. My first impression is that this pattern should be broken down into several patterns. As an indiviual pattern it feels a bit too "high-level" or general to me. But I need to think about this, this is what came first to my mind.

                                            Btw., there are already patterns that should help you design this kind of preview page. "Content Groups" patterns tells you how to group content logically, "Wizard" is somewhat related too, and "Required Form Fields", "Inline Input Adder", and "Input Controls" & "Good Defaults" are basic form patterns that should be helpful.
