About this title


This book explains how to create effective graphical user interfaces by using object-oriented methods and tools. Object technology makes possible a user interface design that is consistent, platform- and tool-independent, and widely extendible into new technologies and applications. It also discusses important new "intent-driven" concepts to create an interface design to best meet the user's needs.GUI developers will value the book's exhaustive list of GUI components and explanation of how these components interact. Human factors principles are incorporated throughout to ensure good design.


Susan Fowler descends on the interface scene with a book that should prove to be a valuable resource for the independent developer. GUI Design Handbook lists all the major GUI components--buttons, check boxes, sliders, labels, and more--alphabetically, like encyclopedia entries. Each component's entry comes with a list of good uses (use a message box to explain an error), a list of bad uses (don't use a tabbed dialog box to present a sequence of events), and plenty of information about usability and how users intuitively perceive particular components. The text is rife with references to academic and technical papers, so you can get more information on particular details if you like. There is no language- or platform-specific information here. This book is about designing good-looking, intelligent interfaces, and it excels at that task.
