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.
