Re: Proving an MS standard
When a popup window has Yes and No buttons, I usually type Y or N instead of
using my mouse or pressing Enter for the active key activation. Our software
doesn't accept a Y or N. I told the developers to change it so it does as,
like it or not, Microsoft is our standard interface. The developers want me
to prove that this is a standard. I went to microsoft.com and spent an hour
trying to find something. Can anyone out there find a reference for me?
Of course the MS has its "standards" books online, in HTML. Good useful tools. The source you want as detailed by others is http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?PP=/library/toc/winguide/winguide3.xml&tocPath=winguide3&URL=/library/books/winguide/part2.htm.
The real problem is that there is no table of contents, there is no index. You cannot effectively search the book. A real reason not to use HTML for online documentation.
