Let me explain the situation.
I started transforming a "old (.Net 2.0)" Application into a webapplication.
Problem here is, that no-one here is really acquainted with the UX of a website (Simple, efficient). Eventhough, i still have to regard that the website can be tailored to a customer needs through parameters (yeah, i know :s )
I wanted to have a layout similar to invoicemachine (= as simple as possible). --> He wants a Ribbon toolbar.
Going to a supplier gives the list of supplier --> He wants to display the "Create Supplier" screen where you can use the wildcards in a certain textbox, to search for a specific Supplier and then give the list of the suppliers. Also, i need 4 search/filter mechanisms:
- people can search per field with wildmarks
- can filter the suppliers
- search a keyword through all the data of a supplier
- filter the "list Suppliers" page by the first letter of the name.

I can't seem to get through to him, that the UX of a website needs to be differently than a Windows Application. If he wants to bring all the logic of the windows app into a website, why letting me build a website then? Stick to the old solution.
Am i mistaking so hard or how could i convince / show him that an online-solution is something different than the offline solution.
He already "saw" online solutions of other applications to get an idea, but if i suggest something he won't listen (if it's GUI / UX related, that is).
