Best Practice 2.7 – Minimize user input (Advanced level)


If appropriate and possible, use the components such as selection lists, pickers, default values for the text input fields and other controls that do not require much typing. Auto-display of appropriate field values for selection (e.g. range of numbers for age input field, "@" sign for email address field) can help user input with less keystrokes.
