RAPIDLY MODIFYING MULTIPLE USER INTERFACES OF ONE APPLICATION - Leveraging Multi-level Dialogue Refinement

Alexander Behring, Andreas Petter, Max Mühlhäuser

Abstract

An increasing demand for supporting users in diverse contexts of use, e.g., depending on interaction device and primary task, results in new challenges for User Interface (UI) development. Two key challenges are: how to create these multiple UIs for one application (creation challenge), and how to consistently modify them (modification challenge). The creation challenge has been addressed in various works utilizing automatic UI generation. We present our approach (Dialogue Refinement) and its tool-support to address the modification challenge by allowing one modification to be applied to multiple UIs at once.
