Abstract:

This thesis explores a particular concept of mode that can provide a unified conceptual framework for user interfaces and can lead to an effective implementation environment for developing a rich variety of user interfaces. This research has addressed several important limitations faced by most user interface management systems UIMSs. These include 1 Lack of generality 2 Little support for creating and managing the connections between user interfaces and their underlying applications and 3 Lack of support beyond the coding phase.
