'[PIC]: User interface guides?'
2001\10\24@235018 by Jeff DeMaagd

Are there an engineer's guides to user interfacing available?

In short I have a project that uses a 20 character x 2 line LCD display, and
a 4x4 keypad.  I already have a fully functioning prototype

Is there a collection of reference ideas on ways to make good use of this?
I have little exposure or experience with devices that operate with those
limitations.

I poked around the PIClist server and a little using Google but I have not
found anything relevant.

Thanks!

Jeff

There's Niall Murphy's book _Front Panel_
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0879305282/bikenomad-20

but I haven't read it yet. I have read his columns in _Embedded Systems_
magazine, though; he often has useful tips, but sometimes has a hard time
staying away from discussing PC program user interfaces also.

(The book link above results in a small kickback to me from Amazon if you
purchase the book, but doesn't affect the book price)

That is nice... but it is for beginners.

it's no longer in print 8-)

Not so much to the user interface alone, but "The design of everyday
things" is very good.

The most important ideas afair are immediate user action feedback (optical
or acoustical or both), continuous current state indication (unlike the vi
editor ;-), and consistency in operation. Also that the most often used
controls are reached first, unless there is a reason to group them
otherwise.

There are books written on proper gui and human/machine interface design.
They mostly amount to the same ideas as expressed above (the two that I
have read until now). You can probably find suitable titles from
McGraw-Hill or Prentice-Hall.

  I second the recommendation of another list member who
  mentioned Donald Norman's "The Psychology of Everyday Things."
  It's especially valuable in helping you understand what NOT to do.
