Subject: Usabiliity of web pages containing tree hierarchy

 

This is a cross-posting to CHI-Web for a posting I originally sent out on
CHI-Consultants.  I apologize if some of you are getting this a second time.

 

I'm working on the UI design for a web app that will include at least one
page having a tree hierarchy in the left nav panel and an information
display area in the main content area.  In "View" mode, when a user clicks
on a node in the tree hierarchy in the left nav panel, detailed information
about that node appears in the main content area.  I'm looking for
suggestions about how to design this without frames, since using frames is
definitely not intuitive to users.

 

The environment constraints my product team has:

1) Windows platforms only

2) IE for sure; Firefox, if I can convince the team to support both.

3) Javascript OK

4) No client-side Java; server-side Java is OK.

5) No .net

6) No .asp

 

Comments/suggestions/visuals?  Send them my way.

 

Claudia
