Cancel vs Close Button

Projects where we have different UX folks working on different modules, though they try to be consistent but in some scenarios things get block. one of the interesting topic is Close vs Cancel button usage :).

to make it simple

Cancel to terminate/roll back a process.  Conscious decision from users.
Example – any business form interface is good example.

Close to shut the interface/dialog and leave changes applied
Example – picture viewer or any scenario where application doesn’t have flow/business behavior.

who should come first Cancel/ Close with Save
Depends, as long as  you are taking care of this consistently any pattern is good. I understand there are blogs/articles they claim SAVE to be on left side and CANCEL on right side. But again very difficult to prove which one is current. I would prefer to SAVE go right in business scenarios, this ll make end user think before selecting save just because of left to right flow.

There are application where we can see interface is using Close and Cancel together.
- Cancel – This is to cancel ongoing process
- Close – This is to close open window.

example – CMS ,visual studio TFS, office 365

Feeling very sad today, feeling like some one is stealing colors from our life. Completely blocked from last couple of hours. No idea, how can someone think of taking life of others. We all ll die one day, why dont these people ll wait for that.

I think now we should erase these folks from our Canvas.

Friends, I know most of us are searching this topic on net to get answer which one is the best project in market. Yes :), more we go through reviews … we start getting confuse. Same happened with me and I spent around 1.5 month reading blogs and reviews.

Finally i have got all three top projectors and tested it personally. while doing this i called group of friends in different groups to have their different views. Really it was interesting to compare all three top projectors and have different eyes. Let me share review comments here, ll try to be very crisp and practical.
