Controls

We’ll use the term “controls” to refer to any collection of elements under a common container that act together to provide a particular user experience. Controls often are encapsulated, reusable components and may be entirely from declarative HTML5/CSS3, entirely created at runtime in script, or some combination of the two.

This section discusses several control types that are common to 10-foot UI design and provides some sample implementations in HTML5/CSS3/JavaScript. The same logic can be adapted for Flash and Actionscript.

Menu Bars

For most pages on a 10-foot UI, the content is the star of the show. Even so, the user needs a way to navigate around the site, access different content, change settings, and interact with the web app.
