Please add to this list if you can think of any new distinct tasks

  • Model Source Code Editor
  • Icon Design
  • Redesign Options Menus
  • Context Menu / Tab / Toolbar Design
  • Pane Layout
  • Graph Display
  • Log / Output Display
  • Multiple projects at once (Gilmore deems unnecessary)
  • Ensuring a consistant and intuitive interface

Research Areas

This should be completed as soon as possible so we can make a start

  • Changing current "look and feel" including layout prototyping for component re-organisation and addition - Duncan DONE
  • Getting other groups to submit required buttons/menu items/context menu items for the features that they are implementing - Adam PENDING
  • Market research: ask what current users of Prism find irritating or difficult to use in the current interface - Raggy DONE
  • Examples of good current Java GUIs that we could take ideas from - Sebastian DONE
  • Clear up ambiguities with Stephen Gilmore and initial organisation - Will DONE
  • Investigations into Java Swing. Perhaps get some library books on this topic to give us methodologies on how to create a functional (yet stunning!) user interface - Charles DONE

Current Subtasks

  • WILL Incorporating the tabs into the tree, and adding functionality to the tree.
  • DUNCAN Overall layout of the GUI
  • RAGGY Improving the Experiments pane
  • SEBASTIAN Redesigning the toolbar(s)
  • CHARLES Starting to play with the editor code (undo, redo, error messaging etc)
  • ADAM Making the options menus look better

Completed Subtasks

  • RAGGY Working on a questionaire for current users - cancelled
  • SEBASTIAN Making a tree view instead of tabs for presentation to Gill on Wednesday 11th Oct
  • WILL, DUNCAN Digging into the source code. Experiments with porting over to SWT. Generation of a class diagram for the entire system
  • DUNCAN Research: viability of porting to SWT
  • WILL Hacking Swing to make it look less javery.


  • In options menu, if you select an item for edit then deselect, user loses the ability to edit the item again.
