    Design Guidance Information Accelerators

    Our new information accelerators enable rapid access to the user interface definitions. We've created two types of accelerator:

    • Interactive Quick Implementation Guides
    • Crib Sheets

    Interactive Quick Implementation Guides present guidance in a visual, hyperlinked style. You jump directly to the relevant guidelines and instantly see them referenced against usage examples. We're offering interactive guides for:

    Crib Sheets provide 'at-a-glance' summaries of the key guidance points for those same guides (not the latter two). We're offering Crib Sheets as downloadable PDF files: just pick those focusing on your interests. Explore the information accelerators by checking out the links on the relevant guidance pages.

    Latest Toolkit Controls

    The SearchAndPrescribe Control allows designers and developers to implement a subset of prescribing functionality.
