In coming weeks, I would need to work over a Windows based application
(Thick Client application) identifying the Usabiluty issues and suggesting
the changes as per the best practices. This is a financial application which
lots of forms for user inputs, grid displays, reports etc.
One thing that I had noticed while comparing this appln with a web based
appln was that the action buttons like submit, reset were fixed at the top
of the form rather than having it below where the form ends.
I had been to the usability guidelines published on MSDN, but I feel that
those guidelines are more related to the microsof products and not very
general. I would like to know some pointers where I can find the usability
best practices for a Windows based application (Thick Client application).
