Designing a GUI
Some of the things that you should remember are:
- Accelerator keys on menus
- Shortcut keys on menus and labels, using the & sign in the caption property. When used in labels, the next control in the taborder is selected.
- Cancel and Default properties
The guidelines suggested in the Microsoft document are followed in the VB Application Wizard, so have a look at the layout of the generated forms.
The most important thing about your UI is that it is intuitive: if you were a completely new computer user, would you be able to use your application with little or no help? If the answer is no, then maybe you should review the form and toolbar layouts.
