    Viewing and Navigation

    Viewing and Navigation encompasses the wide variety of behaviors and operations that allow users to navigate the interface and affect its presentation.

    Access functions


    • Arrange associated controls by using a labeled group box or an unlabeled frame.
    • Allow users to resize aligned groups by placing a splitter between the groups.
    • Use tabs to show related information on separate pages.

    Complex views

    • Use a list view to show some items out of one category.
    • Use a tree view to show items with a single, natural, hierarchical categorization.
    • If you really need to create your own widget follow the guidelines for custom controls.
    • Double check the guidelines about plotting diagram/charts.
