Segmented Control Form Cell

FUISegmentedControlFormCell

Intro

A segmented control form cell allows a user to quickly select from a small set of values. It is typically used in the create and edit pattern, or occasionally in the filter pattern. If the value label is too long or there are more than three values, we recommend using a list picker or a filter form cell instead.

Usage

Do

Use a segmented control form cell when the value texts are short and concise.

Don't

Do not use a segmented control form cell if the values are long and need to be truncated. Use a list picker or a filter form cell instead.

Anatomy

A. Label

Describes the intent of the selection.

B. Buttons

May be selected state and unselected state with a tap. We highly recommend having a default selection as it indicates to the user that the buttons are tappable.

Stacked Buttons

Buttons are displayed underneath the form cell label in the stacked variation. Use this variation when values are too long for single-line variation.
