Let’s check the most popular elements:
The checkbox is shown as a square box that is ticked (checked) when activated. Checkboxes are used to let a user select one or more options for a limited number of choices.
A radio button or option button is a graphical control element that allows the user to choose only one of a predefined set of mutually exclusive options.
Drop-down menu. In a computer GUI, a drop-down menu is a menu that offers a list of options. The title of the menu, or the currently selected item in the list, is always displayed. When the visible item is clicked, other items from the list “drop-down” into view and the user can choose from those options
Toggle Button can be used to display checked/unchecked (On/Off) state on the button. It is beneficial if a user has to change the setting between two states.
Text fields let users enter and edit text
In a computer’s graphical user interface (GUI), an icon (pronounced EYE-kahn) is an image that represents an application, a capability, or some other concept or specific entity with meaning for the user. An icon is usually selectable but can also be a non-selectable image such as a company’s logo.
A search field is a style of text field optimized for performing text-based searches in a large collection of values. Many windows include a search field in the toolbar, but a search field can also be displayed in the body area of a window. A search field displays a magnifying glass icon and can also include placeholder text and a cancellation button.
Pagination refers to the concept of breaking a large set of data in smaller chunks so that it can easily be absorbed both by the application and the user. In simple terms, when you search for something on Google you get a list of numbers and Google written at the bottom of the results page. This is a breakdown of all the million+ results Google has found for your query and has broken it down into “pages” so that you can easily browse through them. This is pagination.
A link (short for hyperlink) is an HTML object that allows you to jump to a new location when you click or tap it. Links are found on almost every webpage and provide a simple means of navigating between pages on the web. Links can be attached to text, images, or other HTML elements.
