Eliminate the reason and achieve the preservation of the meaning of user actions in the domain, and fully meet the user requirements in the interface of the information system is possible if to create a methodological framework (a general methodological description) of user interfaces development that will be a common sign form of models organization and will be understandable to all participants of the interface development process, including the user. It is proposed to represent the user actions in the domain in the form of mechanisms of action and on the bases of them to build a process of interface design. The paper presents the method of user interface design based on semantic approach and demonstrates a short example of its usage.
