View Full Version : web design for search & update GUI form

24 Jan 2007, 11:40 PM
Hi there:

I'm wondering whether there is any UI pattern or best practices available on how to design a web page that has two step actions. First is "search a record" and then the next is "update".

Let us say it is a school administration software having all web based administrations.

The Administrator has to often search a student record and update with grades, attendance, extra curricular activities, etc.

"Search + update grade" is the action of "Update Grade" menu item.
"Search + update attendance" is the action of "Attendance" menu item.
"Search + update activities" is the action of "Update Extra activity" menu item.

Search will be usually based on Last Name, First Name, Class, Student Id.

Thank you,
