Informal prototyping of continuous graphical interactions by demonstration
Informal prototyping tools have shown great potential in facilitating the early stage design of user interfaces. However, continuous interactions, an important constituent of highly interactive interfaces, have not been well supported by previous tools. These interactions give continuous visual feedback, such as geometric changes of a graphical object, in response to continuous user input, such as the movement of a mouse. We built Monet, a sketch-based tool for prototyping continuous interactions by demonstration. In Monet, designers can prototype continuous widgets and their states of interest using examples. They can also demonstrate compound behaviors involving multiple widgets by direct manipulation. Monet allows continuous interactions to be easily integrated with event-based, discrete interactions. Continuous widgets can be embedded into storyboards and their states can condition or trigger storyboard transitions. Monet achieves these features by employing continuous function ap...
