ICS 665 Class Notetaker on January 30th



Comments on the above applet
  1. Defferent layouts of Applets among machines because of different OS (In particular, Win95 and Sun Microsystems)
  2. Proper layout managers can design buttons better by font size and reshape
  3. Instead of many buttons, "choice" is better
  4. Also, use another pop windows like dialog box
  5. Use switch of the sound or volumn control
  6. "Help" button is necessary
