Increasing the clickable area of .win-backbutton

    Question

  • During usability testing we found that the button.win-backbutton is styled in a way that gives it a very narrow clickable area. Often users would try to click the button and nothing happens because they're slightly off. We would like to slightly increase the clickable area (at least to cover the corners of the square outside the circle) without throwing the button.win-backbutton concept out of the window. Any suggestions?

  • Hi Marcus,

    You cannot modify the click area.  You would need to do something yourself if it does not meet your needs.  For example you could create your own control.  I am surprised you found this to be a problem.  What is your hard data on this or is this just your perception?  Did you take some sort of measurements and how big was your usability study?

  • Actually.....he COULD change the CSS to make it bigger (change the width and height), overwriting the default width and height.

    i could be wrong though.
