Subject:screen terminology for java applications From:tudsbery -at- matranet -dot- com (Edwin Tudsbery) To:"Tech list" <techwr-l -at- lists -dot- raycomm -dot- com> Date:Tue, 14 Dec 1999 17:56:05 +0100
Does anyone know the screen terminology to use for Java applications? I'm
wondering what to call the main "window" (screen? frame?) which is displayed
when you start the application and then the subsequent "dialog boxes"
(panels?, windows?) accessible from the main "window". One difference with
Windows dialog boxes is that you don't need to close them before doing
something else in the main "window".
