Hey Guys,

just wondering what GUI elements & Other reletated features people who passed the Exam had in their GUIs?

Did you use JMenuBar?

What about status bar?

ToolTips?

Or are these overkill?

Detailed info about my GUI can be found here.

in short: menubar (one menu with one menu-item), tool tips, simple buttons and text fields, no status bar, no icons, no progress bar, highly restrictive (e.g. blocking invalid chars), user friendly (e.g. enter-enabled search), consistent look-and-feel, easy to add extra functionality,...
