This chapter describes how components are combined to create a page, and other page-level issues.
A page generally contains the following areas: branding (1), navigation (2), global buttons (3), page content (4), and footer (5). A page footer is used to visually close the page, and also serves as an area to repeat high level navigation (discussed below), as well as give copyright information and a privacy statement link. PageLayoutBean supports three named children displayed in the footer, copyright, privacy, and about. The global buttons area is a content or functional area that is "global" or available from every part of an application.
Every text label of a global button is repeated in the page footer to give users easy navigation from the bottom of the page. Level three navigation is a filter of the contents or actions of the selected level two section.
In order to demonstrate displaying errors with message beans, a button that generates an "error" event is included in the following example (see Handling Errors in ADF UIX for more on displaying errors with message beans).
A message box describing the error can also be displayed above the title when there is an error on a message bean (see Handling Errors in ADF UIX for more on the message box). A Context Switcher in a page allows the contents of the page to be changed based on the context. Quick Links are used for long pages that have clearly defined sections of contents within a page.
The pageButtons child contains action and navigation buttons that relate to the content of the page. The returnNavigation child allows for the addition of a "Return to [X]" link at the bottom of the content area of the page. Content containers are used in page layouts to help distinguish specific types of content or group information.
A page stamp provides view-only information about the user's account, the page, or a section of a page. Figure 8-2 shows a page with all three levels of navigation: tabs, global header, and side navigation. In Figure 8-4, the global header (2) filters the contents or actions of the selected tab (1). In Figure 8-5, the side navigation (2) filters the contents or actions of the selected tab (1).
The breadcrumb on the top left we can use SharePoint’s breadcrumb trail and we will embed the newsletter subscription into the page layout because we don’t want this to be explicitly defined into the layout.
If you preview your page layout, you will see it doesn’t look like much – we need to update the HTML around the field controls to properly format the layout. This will publish both the HTML and ASPX files, now making them available to create a page based on your layout.


You can fill in your content either by typing it in or copying and pasting it from either your existing web site or from office documents such as Word.  The copy and paste has improved dramatically over previous versions!
Our content is there, but the layout doesn’t reflect what we want…so now edit the HTML to update our layout.
All the content within the main page area is fully managed by SharePoint can be easily changed by a content author.
It has a reasonably good HTML editor built it and you can use it to go in and directly edit Master Pages and Page Layouts. Is is necessary to create the masterpage (the one you created) before creating the pagelayout? In this section we will take a look at this bean in particular and use it to illustrate general user interface design principles. If the content is available from 95-100% of the application, a global button should be used to access the information. The application switcher is used to switch between applications or modules within an application. We recommend a tabBar is used for level one navigation, and that there are at least two and no more than seven tabs. All of the UIX is shown since an event handler section is added and we want the example to be clear. Locator elements include a Train, indicating the user's location in a multi-step process, or BreadCrumbs, reflecting hierarchical navigation. The first text string in the breadCrumbs should be from the level one navigational element, the second from the level two navigational element, and so on. The quick link "bar" (group of anchor links) provides an overview to the user of the sections of content within a page, some of which may not be visible without scrolling down the page. These buttons are shown once under the page title, and once at the bottom of the content area of the page. This link allows the user to move back up the navigation hierarchy, for example to the default page of the tab that is currently selected. Tabs may be used alone when they are sufficient to divide the content sections or actions within the application. An application may not have any sections or levels; therefore, tabs and other navigation controls are not necessary.
A review page typically contains information relating to the previous steps where data changes have been made. Do you have any tips for HTML editing now that we cannot use all the nice visual SP Designer features?
Keep in mind that many of the recommendations in this chapter are suggestions based on user interface design ideas rather than UIX limitations.
In most cases only corporateBranding and productBranding are used, and that is what we will show in most of the examples.


Note also that one of the buttons, the "View Source" button, allows you to view UIX XML source for the page. As a user navigates or drills down through the levels they will access more detailed content and functionality. In the following example the message box will only be visible when the Add to Cart button is pressed. A user would use the context switcher to switch from viewing the accounting departments assets to the marketing departments assets.
Each quick link in the quick link "bar" is a link that allows the user to "jump to" a specific section of the page contents quickly. The quick search should be persistent throughout the sections of content which the search covers, so if the quick search encompasses content in different tabs, each tabbed section should have the quick search. The numbers called out to the side of each illustration are explained in the description following each illustration.
This configuration is good for applications with a "flat" information structure, where grouping content or functions at higher levels does not fit the users mental model of the application task.
In this example the name of the process (page) appears as a label in the blue area (1) which otherwise would contain global header links. These pages should be available from any place in the application, and should contain content or actions that are applicable to the entire application. It can be an non-interactive element, and only used as an indicator or it can be interactive and used to navigate through the steps of the task. In this example all six are shown and the roll-over text indicates which image corresponds to which child. The maximum recommended number of global buttons is seven, for spacing and clarity of navigation. Content containers draw the users attention to a section of information by using a different colored background and content border other than the entire page contents. One such issue is that many pages have common parts, for example the global buttons should be the same for every page in an application. For example, Includes and Templating in ADF UIX tells how to define a repeated element once, further simplifying page creation and maintenance. When a global button is selected, the name of the global section can appear in the blue area which is otherwise used for the global header area.

    Critical is because they influence how we feel you commit yourself to develop.
