Showing that dropdown filter has been applied?
An issue I've had with mobile apps with dropdowns is that when I change the dropdown selection, it's not clear if the filter was applied. It usually happens when my phone has weak reception. I continue clicking on dropdowns but nothing happens.
With that said, our mobile app has two dropdowns.
Just above the results I added a column header that changes when the dropdown changes. That way the list changed and the user knows the filter has been applied.
I don't want to waste space on a header that repeats information.
Question: After user makes a selection, Is there a more elegant way to let the user know that the filter was applied?
Note: the filters only change the order of the rows. The number of rows displayed remain the same.
You can show number of results. Customer will be understand when the number is changed.
