Summary

In our view prototyping of the user interface is an important task within the specification. It supports the communication with users of the software and it should be a documented part of the specification. Object oriented analysis notations and tools have to be enhanced: They should allow integration of user interface prototypes and support some kind of documentation of the user interface. The proposed notation can be a starting point for such a user interface documentation.

WINDOW-ELEMENTS:
Registration (group box)
--BSC-No.(1) AT_VBSVT_BSC_Number
this field can contain a customer-no. or a full BSC-no. (customer-
no. with a postfixed contract-no.)
--Type of client (3, Poptext) AT_PPERS_Person_type
individual (default), couple or company
ACTIONS
Read customer (on exit of BSC-No.)
if the user enters a customer-no. without a contract-no. then the
system reads the customer from the database (new contract for
existing customer).
Input of a BSC-No. (on exit of BSC-No.)
if the user enters a BSV-No. then no customer is read (new customer).
Adjustment to type_of_client (on exit of type_of_client)
if type_of_client is set to individual, then disable:
on register Client: group-box 2. client, name client-group,
