Title: USER-CENTERED DESIGN OF INTERFACE TOOLKITS
Authors: Roseman, Mark

Keywords: Computer Science
Issue Date: 1-Jan-1993
Abstract: Current user interface toolkits unnecessarily complicate the process of creating user interfaces. This paper suggests that the design of these toolkits must be rethought. We advocate a user-centered approach to the design of these development tools, considering the application developer as user and applying principles from interface design to design of interface toolkits. The process of user-centered toolkit design is described, making use of design affordances to influence the developer's use of the toolkit. User-centered design is shown as a useful framework for understanding a number of toolkit issues and their solutions.
