Every designer faces the problem of choosing appropriate interaction objects when designing a human-computer interface. This should depend on the user capabilities, the data model and the target environment. Because the designer must rely on the experience and because there exists no way to assess that presentation consistency of the user-interfacefe is preserved, research results are presented as explicit selection rules.
