We have a filtered results page, and in the sidebar, the user can choose the values to filter.
We usually use checkboxes so that a user can check an item
to select to filter by a value or leave it unchecked
We need to add to this feature a way of
exclude each value.
The application must be accessible on tablet, which excludes things like Shift + click or right click.
How would you do it? First, we would like not to reinvent the wheel if there is a common way to perform this action.
The things we envision are
- Radio buttons next to each value for all three options (very cluttered, even if no option is selected)
- 3-way "switch" element next to each (not necessarily an intuitive element of the user interface)
