Horizon Visual Specification
The intent of this wiki is to provide overall guidelines for implementing patterns for Horizon.
Assumptions: - The patterns will assume that the dev is using angular.js. - The patterns are intended to provide some guidance, but will not be overly prescriptive. - Patterns should be vetted through the community before being included in this wiki. - Community members should feel comfortable adding patterns
The Details panel contains detailed information for an object in Horizon and is typically opened by clicking on the object name from a list in a panel. For example, you would typically click on an instance name from the Instance panel to view specific details for that instance.
Overall, you would need a Details panel if there is too much information to easily fit within a row in a table. For example, an Instance includes a source, flavors, quotas, and networks; way too much stuff to fit into a single row. In addition, the details panel should allow users to take an Action on a object based on the information displayed in the Details panel. For example, a user should be able to update the flavor for a specific instance within the Instance details panel.
