We have an app in which user needs to specify some parameters and their value types.
Parameter details Name [ ] *text field Type [ ] *combobox
Here's a list of allowed parameter value types in our app (though I believe it's pretty generic):
- single ordinal or floating-point value
- datetime value
- list of options from which you can choose only one
- list of options from which you can choose many
- text input
- boolean input
What is the correct way of naming these types in a combobox/radiogroup from which user selects parameter value type? So that it is clear which option is selected, but is not overly wordy (since GUI space is valuable).
I guess that would be (correspondingly): Numeric/Digital?, Datetime?, Single-choice list, Multi-choice list, Text, Flag?
Please reply with which parameter value type names should be used to be proper English?
To address comments, I'm looking specifically for proper English words choice, not the UI/UX/programming advice.
