User interfaces are the way that is important to interact with the user. The Fluent Design System is used for creating adaptive, easy to handle and attractive user interfaces. This focuses to provide natural feel on each device and adaptability to the environment. Whatever the device may be, tablet, PC or even Mixed Reality headset, it makes working comfortable. If any additional hardware like monitor is added to the existing PC, then that would act as feature for Fluent. Fluent adjust to the behaviour and understand what the user exactly wants and acts accordingly. Even if there is a difference among the people and ideas, Fluent would unite it together and act based on it. Fluent is something that is fundamental by using the physical elements existing. To organize the information in a way that looks intuitive, it uses light, shadow, motion, depth and texture for the interface.
Apply Fluid Design to apps
Universal Windows Platform (UWP) is created to support Fluid design to apply to any platform. Few features for fluent design are built into UWP. Among those, effectual pixels and worldwide input system are automatic. This does not require any coding to be written to operate. Features like acrylic are optional and that would require code to use them. UWP controls are used to enhance the look, feel and functionality of the existing WPF to use with Fluent Design Features. To make an application experience natural on an array of devices it should be designed in a way that it is created for specific device. A good UI would adapt itself to different screen sizes and so looks natural.
A natural fit
- Design with right breakpoints
You can use breakpoints that have few key widths can simplify your designs and code. Instead of designing for every individual screen size, this method is very useful.
- Create a responsive layout
If any app should look natural it should adapt its layout whatever the screen size and the device may be. For creating a responsive UI, you can use automatic sizing, layout panels and separate UI definitions.
- Design for many devices
UWP apps are able to run on many window powered devices. This would be helpful to understand the types of devices are available and how users interact with them.
- Customize for special inputs
For using common input devices like mouse, keyboard and pen there is nothing to be improvised. But for supporting for devices like pen and surface dial, you can enhance the app for optimized support.
- Making intuitive
Any UI would feel intuitive when it acts the way the user wants. By using controls and patterns this is achieved. Fluent is available with many features so many people can use them. Along with this, features for providing right navigation, making interactive and using the right control for the job is necessary.
Fluent designs incorporate physical features that enhance user experience. You can also incorporate motions through animations. Fluent also provides using the light that makes the UI more interactive. It is best used by Windows app creators to enhance the interface user friendly.
