Articles: Showing

Virtual Windows: Linking User Tasks, Data Models, and Interface Design ( Soren Lauesen, Morten Borup Harning ; IEEE Software Magazine 2001-07)

- Should you design user interfaces by giving an overview of data in the system or showing only the necessary data for each task step? Neither ensures efficient task support or ease of understanding, so the authors show an approach that balances both and allows early user validation.

Printed Embedded Data Graphical User Interfaces ( David L. Hecht ; IEEE Computer Magazine 2001-03)

- Printed embedded data graphical user interfaces generalize the interaction domain to images and objects to enable interaction with passive objects and active displays throughout user environments.

Synchronous C++: A Language for Interactive Applications ( Claude Petitpierre ; IEEE Computer Magazine 1998-09)

- Synchronous C++ defines active objects that contain their own execution threads and can communicate with each other by means of synchronizing method calls. The author shows how to model programs in sC++ and compares sC++ with event-driven programming.

A Model-Based Interface Development Environment ( Angel R. Puerta ; IEEE Software Magazine 1997-07)

- Mobi-D is a highly interactive environment that represents all relevant aspects of interface design in tightly connected declarative models. It supports user-centered development and allows structured design from abstract objects like user tasks.

Developing Software Using OVID ( Dave Roberts, Dick Berry, Scott Isensee, John Mullaly ; IEEE Software Magazine 1997-07)

- Object View Interaction Design is a structured design methodology that helps the design team create a good, object-based user interface design. Because OVID uses a structured process and appropriate tools, the design progresses more quickly with fewer cycles of iteration.

Low-Effort, High-Payoff User Interface Reengineering ( Catherine Plaisant, Anne Rose, Ben Shneiderman, Ajit J. Vanniamparampil ; IEEE Software Magazine 1997-07)

- Using a variety of low-effort, high-payoff strategies on six major software projects, the authors demonstrated that, in some cases, effective user interface reengineering can be accomplished in a matter of weeks instead of the year or more traditionally required.

Choosing a User Interface Development Tool ( Laura A. Valaer, Robert G. Babb II ; IEEE Software Magazine 1997-07)

- Before you invest in a GUI development tool, you should know its benefits and drawbacks. The authors provide a checklist for choosing a tool that fits your needs. Usability, functionality, flexibility, portability, support, and cost are all part of the picture.

Creating Effective User Interfaces ( Andrew Sears, Arnold M. Lund ; IEEE Software Magazine 1997-07)

Tool Box ( ; IEEE Software Magazine 1995-01)

- As client-server applications continue to replace mainframe-based systems, developers are looking for ways to adapt testing procedures for graphical user interfaces. Some advocate starting from scratch with new approaches; others, like Dan Mosley, see ways to amend old techniques and supplement them with new ones. Here, Mosley, who has 14 years experience in information systems, offers some tips from his upcoming book Testing Client-Server Application Software (Prentice-Hall, to be published fall 1995) and gives advice on selecting GUI test tools. ó David Sharon, Editor

Applying Discount Usability Engineering ( Bill Curtis, Jakob Nielsen ; IEEE Software Magazine 1995-01)

- Usability engineering isnít just for the multimillion dollar companies with massive internal test labs. Jakob Nielsen, a distinguished engineer at SunSoft, relates how he and another designer (yes, a two-person project) employed low-cost, easily accessible techniques to perform several useful studies. The techniques, detailed in his recent book Usability Engineering (AP Professional, 1994), are virtually free of complex statistical methods, relying instead on simple observation and interpretation. Nielsen also joins me as coeditor of Interface beginning with this issue. ó Bill Curtis

Glyphmaker: Creating Customized Visualizations of Complex Data ( William Ribarsky, Eric Ayers, John Eble, Sougata Mukherjea ; IEEE Computer Magazine 1994-07)

- Glyphmaker allows nonexpert users to customize their own graphical representations using a simple glyph editor and a point-and-click binding mechanism. In particular, users can create and then alter bindings to visual representations, bring in new data or glyphs with associated bindings, change ranges for bound data, and do these operations interactively. They can also focus on data down to any level of detail, including individual elements, and then isolate or highlight the focused region. These features empower users, letting them employ their specialized domain knowledge to create customized visual representations for further exploration and analysis. For ease of design and use, we built Glyphmaker on top of Iris Explorer, the Silicon Graphics Inc. (SGI) dataflow visualization system. The current version of Glyphmaker has been successfully tested on a materials system simulation. We are planning a series of tests and evaluations by scientists and engineers using real data.

Public Windows Interface Supporters Aim to Standardize Leading Desktop API ( ; IEEE Computer Magazine 1994-05)

- Public Windows Interface (PWI) is an effort by several computer industry leaders to ensure that the Microsoft Windows application programming interface (API) moves into the world of open systems. By formalizing the existing API as a standard, PWI will provide a snapshot to which developers can refer and upon which they can build their applications. By making PWI an open standard, all parties will have an equal opportunity to compete and to propose future changes. PWI supporters have encouraged Microsoft to submit its complete API to a neutral standards body and to agree to abide by changes and extensions approved by that body. So far, Microsoft has declined to do so. Certain of the technology companies who see the value of creating a formal standard have committed resources to the laborious task of fully and formally documenting the API. These companies will submit the resulting specification to the appropriate neutral standards body upon its completion, where it will be available for all to use at no cost. With PWI as a new standard, users will be able to choose among multiple implementations, leverage their prior investments, and use familiar applications on a host of new devices. Independent software vendors will benefit from a more stable, open API, and will be able to funnel their resources into new development. Systems vendors will broaden the range of applications available for their platforms. In short, PWI will bring the benefits of open systems to the PC world.

Demonstrational Interfaces: A Step Beyond Direct Manipulation ( Brad A. Myers ; IEEE Computer Magazine 1992-08)

- Demonstrational interfaces, interfaces that let the user perform actions on concrete example objects while constructing an abstract program, thus letting the user create parameterized procedures and objects without learning a programming language, are discussed. The motivations for and problems associated with demonstrational interfaces are presented. A survey of the various types of interfaces is also presented. Areas that would benefit from demonstrational technology, including general-purpose programming, visualization, macros for direct-manipulation interfaces, drawing packages, text editing and formatting, and user interface development environments, are discussed. Research issues involving demonstrational interfaces are reviewed.

Interactive Systems: Bridging the Gaps Between Developers and Users ( Jonathan Grudin ; IEEE Computer Magazine 1991-04)

- Three development contexts are examined to provide a framework for understanding interactive software development projects. These contexts are the competitively bid, commercial product, and in-house/custom contexts development. Factors influencing interactive systems development are examined. Specific strategies to cope with the gaps between developers and prospective users are explored at the general level of the three development paradigms.

Garnet: Comprehensive Support for Graphical, Highly Interactive User Interfaces ( Brad A. Myers, Dario A. Giuse, Roger B. Dannenberg, Brad Vander Zanden, David S. Kosbie, Edward Pervin, Andrew Mickish, Philippe Marchal ; IEEE Computer Magazine 1990-11)

- The Garnet research project, which is creating a set of tools to aid the design and implementation of highly interactive, graphical, direct-manipulation user interfaces, is discussed. Garnet also helps designers rapidly develop prototypes for different interfaces and explore various user-interface metaphors during early product design. It emphasizes easy specification of object behavior, often by demonstration and without programming. Garnet contains a number of different components grouped into two layers. The Garnet Toolkit (the lower layer) supplies the object-oriented graphics system and constraints, a set of techniques for specifying the objects' interactive behavior in response to the input devices, and a collection of interaction techniques. On top of the Garnet Toolkit layer are a number of tools to make creating user interfaces easier. The components of both layers are described.

A Graphical Data Manipulation Language for an Extended Entity-Relationship Model ( Bogdan Czejdo, Ramez Elmasri, Marek Rusinkiewicz, David W. Embley ; IEEE Computer Magazine 1990-03)

- A user can formulate database queries and updates graphically, by manipulating schema diagrams. The authors based the graphical data manipulation interface on the entity-relationship (ER) model because of its widespread use and increasing popularity. They use an extended ER model incorporating various forms of generalization and specialization, including subset, union and partition relationships. They call their model the extended conceptual entity-relationship or ECER model. A comparison with other graphical entity-relationship interfaces is included.

Prototypes from Standard User Interface Management Systems ( T.G. Lewis, Fred Handloser, III, Sharada Bose, Sherry Yang ; IEEE Computer Magazine 1989-05)

- An explanation is given of showing a computer what to do by directly manipulating objects, as opposed to giving it instructions using a programming language. The authors demonstrate how showing can take advantage of a standard user interface and the consistency of a user interface paradigm. They discuss prototyping in the Oregon Speedcode Universe, a programming system for writing programs without programming languages.

Composing User Interfaces with InterViews ( Mark A. Linton, John M. Vlissides, Paul R. Calder ; IEEE Computer Magazine 1989-02)

- The authors describe a user interface toolkit, InterViews, that offers a rich set of composition mechanisms and a variety of predefined objects, allowing easy implementation of complex user interfaces. InterViews supports composition of three object categories, each implemented as a hierarchy of object classes derived from a common base class. The categories are interactive objects, structured graphics objects, and structured text objects. The authors present several simple applications and show how InterViews objects can implement their interfaces. They illustrate the benefits of separating interactive behavior and abstract data in several different contexts. They discuss InterViews support for end-user customization as well as the status of the current implementation.

Segue: Support for Distributed Graphical Interfaces ( Stuart C. Schaffner, Martha Borkan ; IEEE Computer Magazine 1988-12)

- The authors describe their experiences developing Segue, an interface tool for supporting application programs that manipulate tree-like data structures. This semantic domain, although restrictive, includes a number of important application programs, such as structured editors, incremental compilers, and file system managers. The user interface tools described here support the Distributed Ada Programming Support Environment (DAPSE). The authors discuss the structure of Segue, present the R2D unparsing system, and examine tree-to-tree mappings. They then present three Segue user interfaces: an Ada editor, an Ada library manager, and the Gift interface specification tool.
