  • Implementing the "copy" feature the Y! Mail's Contact Bubble/Lozenge

    by Subramanyan Murali

    The email contact bubble or "lozenge" as we call it, is a self contained entity in the Yahoo! Mail compose page that can be copied, edited, deleted and even dragged around. It is one of the many useful design elements in the new Yahoo! Mail and a better, more intuitive way of representing the boring old email address.

    Representing Email as a DHMTL widget gives us an opportunity to implement various cool features around a simple email address, but one challenge it poses is to provide the ability to copy the email address.

    The contact lozenge shows only the Name attributes of the email address. So, when the user wants to copy the contents of a contact lozenge, we will need to make sure the name and email address in the format Name <email.com> is copied to the clipboard.

    In Yahoo! mail we support both copy using keyboard shortcut CTRL + C and through a user initiated action. In this talk I will cover 2 techniques that we used. One of them, the clipboard-plugin was recently released as a Node Plugin on YUI Gallery.

    Intended audience: Intermediate Users.
