Navigation Patterns

Interface patterns give you an opportunity to explore different interface designs. Be sure to check out How to Adapt a Pattern for Your Application.

Goal

Use the navigation patterns to help orient users and enable them to easily navigate pages and content. This page explains how you can use this pattern in your interface, and walks through the design structure in detail.

There are four options for navigation patterns which provide a way to structure a group of pages with icon/text-based left navigation. When an icon/title is selected, the corresponding page is displayed. All four patterns have similar functionality, design, and data sets. They're all are located under the PATTERNS tab under PALETTE in your interface. Test out all four to see which option works best for you.

When you're adapting one of these patterns, be sure to follow UX design best practices, like adding a descriptive caption to the icons and using accessibilityText to help screen reader users know when icons or cards are selected.

Let's take a closer look at the "Navigation (Collapsible)" pattern.

The main components in this pattern are a Column that changes between "EXTRA-NARROW" and "NARROW" widths, Card Layouts with links, and a set of Styled Icons and titles.

Pattern expression

When you drag and drop the collapsible navigation pattern onto your interface, 203 lines of expressions will be added to the section where you dragged it.

Design structure

[Line 1-15] Set local variables

At the beginning of the expression, three local variables are set up: local!collapseNav, which stores whether or not the side navigation is collapsed, local!activeCollapsibleNavSection, which stores the current selection, and local!collapsibleNavSections, which stores the list of page names and their respective icons. local!activeCollapsibleNavSection is initialized to the first page by default.

    local!collapseNav: false,

    local!activeCollapsibleNavSection: 1,
    /* The navigation sections */
    local!collapsibleNavSections: {
      a!map(name: "Workspace", icon: "briefcase"),
      a!map(name: "Tasks",     icon: "tasks"),
      a!map(name: "Requests",  icon: "paper-plane"),
      a!map(name: "Calendar",  icon: "calendar"),
      a!map(name: "My Time",   icon: "clock-o"),
      a!map(name: "Expenses",  icon: "money")
    },

[Line 16-136] Left navigation

The left navigation is constructed in two different ways depending on whether or not it's collapsed. When expanded, the left navigation is built using card layouts with Dynamic Links and Rich Text inside a NARROW column. When collapsed, the left navigation is built using LARGE styled icons with dynamic links inside an EXTRA-NARROW column.

Inside of the first column, we iterate over each section defined in local!collapsibleNavSections using a!forEach(). This is where we then determine what size navigation to show by checking the value of local!collapseNav. The components used for each size vary, but both use fv!index to save the index of the selected section to local!activeCollapsibleNavSection in the dynamic link.

There are a couple of small details that have been added in for better functionality and user experience. We set showBorder parameter to false for the card layouts and used a styled icon with a dynamic link to change the width of the navigation at the bottom of the list of icons.

[Line 137-203] Selected section

Once the user clicks on an icon or a card in the left navigation pane, the selected section will render in the right column. In this pattern, we have only configured a basic section layout to display. You'll want to add your components to the contents of the section or replace the section with an interface object for the associated section.

To create a better division between our navigation and section contents, we've used the showDividers parameter in our Columns Layout.

Additional navigation patterns

In addition to the "Navigation (Collapsible)" pattern described above, the "Navigation", "Navigation (Stamp)", and "Navigation (Subsections)" patterns are also available in your interface. They're located in PALETTE, under the PATTERNS tab.

This pattern is a simplified version of the "Navigation (collapsible)" pattern, using only a "NARROW" column with the card layouts.
