    Split

    Hi, i have a 'split-o-meter' on one of my forms on my site that allows a user to split an amount between two people.

    I'm trying to decide which way the split-o-meter should move and represent the percentage split between the two users.

    As you can see in the attached, if you want to give Peter more, you move the split button to the left towards Peter... BUT some of my test users think that the bar itself should represent the proportion allocated to Peter and Paul, so they think that the position that the bar is in now (attached) should mean that Peter has 30% and not 70%.

    What is your opinion on this?

    A - you think it is ok the way it is now, OR

    B - you think that the current bar / split position should mean that Peter has 30% and not 70%

    My preference would be to have a two-colored horizontal bar, and perhaps a dividing line extending up to split Peter's side from Paul's. And even put Paul's name in the color of his bar, and the same for Peter.

    I agree with your users. The percentages of time alloted to the users and the position of the slider seem to be at odds.

    My first thought when I saw the image was that Peter was getting 30%...
