Description

SPC filed a patent for the display of images in dialog boxes, where the images dynamically changed to represent the results of different choices as the user made them. This is an example dialog. I believe it was called "Quick Looks". It helped the user know what they were getting before they clicked "OK" instead of afterward finding out that choice was not what they thought it was. Donated by Jeff Conniff.
