The Automatic Generation of a Graphical Dialogue Model from Delphi Source Code
A shortcoming of current user interface builders is that while they permit the designer to construct the visible user interface, they provide no model of the interaction. This paper describes how a Lean Cuisine+ graphical dialogue model of the behaviour of a graphical user interface (GUI) can be automatically generated from Delphi source code. The model is produced in a file format which is compatible with SELCU, an experimental support environment for Lean Cuisine+. SELCU provides for viewing, printing and editing of the model, which can be used to analyse the interaction.
