The status pane occupies an area at the top of the screen and displays information regarding the status of the current application, and of the device itself. The status pane itself is divided into the following subpanes:

  • Title Pane
  • Context Pane
  • Navigation Pane
  • Signal Pane
  • Battery Pane
  • Universal Indicator Pane (or Small Indicator Pane)

Status pane components

Some usability guidelines

  • Applications should modify only the Context, Title and Navigation pane.
  • Status pane can be hidden for a full screen mode application, e.g. a game application.
  • Title pane should display the application name for the default view of the application.

  • Context pane will display the current application's icon, but can be changed by the user.

View/Application Icon

The application icon should be displayed on the status pane of the view.
