Subject:Needed: GUI Style Book From:Stacey Roberts <stacey -at- AIMETERING -dot- COM> Date:Mon, 15 Jul 1996 16:25:00 C
I've been asked to develop the GUI specifications for the next upgrade of
our software. Our current GUI is very inconsistent (e.g., "Add" buttons
on one screen, "New" buttons on another) and development is tired of me
writing defect reports.
Where in Austin, Texas can I find a GUI style guide that won't take 6 -
10 weeks to order (as quoted by a famous national chain bookstore) or is
there a technical mail order house I could contact?
FYI-We (they) are developing in XVT for the OS/2 platform, but a generic
GUI stylebook would do just fine. TIA...
