GUI Planning

Before designing any specific user interface, it is a good idea to spend some time designing the interface and how to navigate in the application.

Tip
Do not waste space. Avoid the use of unnecessary images. Avoid the use of unnecessary options. Use the space wisely by placing the most frequent tasks in the main interface.

Tip
Save the user from making too many clicks ( i.e.,if there is enough space use radio buttons instead for a drop down list). Invest most of your time helping the user to simplify frequent tasks. Specially, be sure that most frequent tasks can be performed with the keyboard only.

Tip
Ask for confirmation, when the user is performing a task that it is not easy to undo.

Tip
If the program does not provide Undo-Redo support, then you must provide OK and Cancel buttons in each operation.
