UI design – required combobox field that only has ‘Other’ as a valid selection…

Posted by jpluimers on 2009/10/01

Sometimes I wonder what people were thinking when they developed a particular part of their user interface.

Look at thecombobox on the right (it is part of an ASPX page, but could have been in any kind of technology):

  • “Job Role” is required
  • “Select One” is an invalid choice
  • “Other” is the only valid choice left

I’d love to know what they are going to do with all this “Other” information…
