W7P SwimEventTimes development - Touch and Hold Gesture vs Discovery

Category: FeaturesAdministrator @ 11:20

I had implemented a "Touch and Hold" gesture for editing and deleting items from the Swimmer's page. 

The "Touch and Hold" would bring up a Context menu for editing and deleting a selected swimmer.

After receiving complaints from beta users that this was not discoverable I thought I needed to provide a better experience for the user. 

What I ended up using was a List box with check boxes and additional icons in the application bar to control the experience.  So before, I had a context menu with "Edit" and "Delete" which was revised into two additional icons on the application bar.

I made great use of the following example:

Now it's quite apparent on how to delete swimmers and edit the swimmer's date range when you need to refresh and download with the latest meet data.
