Senior System Architect V8 Test - UI design (Mob and Non Mob App) Best Practice Question
Below Question is present in SSA V8 exam in Pega Academy :
To display a list of items to a user who may access the application on mobile and non-mobile devices, which two of the following options are best practices for designing the user interface? (Choose Two)
Source the list using a data page.
Use a table and mark the columns in the table as primary, secondary, and other.- Correct
Define the layout widths in pixels.
Use a repeating dynamic layout
According to answers , 2 and 4th option are correct and you get score for it, but as a best practice for mobile UI , sourcing a list using Data Page is recommended 1st option, which should be preferred over 2nd option , so correct option should be 1st and 4th instead of the above ones , is this question wrongly marked in the course? or there is any alternate reason for preference of 2nd option over 1st.
You are correct that sourcing data from a data page is frequently a best practice for accessing data. However, this particular question asks about best practice design of a user interface supporting multiple devices. Data pages have NO impact on the user interface design. This is a critical item to understand as it allows for decoupling of the data layer and the user interface.
