Lab 4.4 Implementing User Interfaces

Lab Objectives

After this lab, you will be able to:

  • Understand the Basics of Windowing Systems

  • Understand the Basics of the X Windows System


We build GUI applications from a large range of user interface controls. Modern GUI builder tools typically give developers access to thirty to forty different controls, each with a different set of features. Space does not allow us to describe all of these controls. However, the window user interface control is fundamental to all GUI applications, even those appearing on the Web. We therefore introduce the basic concepts of window creation and management in this lab. You will see that even this fundamental user interface control is far from simple and contains a long list of features. Remember that each feature requires significant application or operating system code to support it.
