UserSignifiedGraphicalAction
A UserSignifiedAction that is interpreted as signifying a change in a graphical feature (cursor movement, highlighting of an area, etc.).
Relationships      
Parents UserSignifiedAction A UserSignifiedAction is an action signified by physical action taken by a ComputerUser in interacting with a ComputerProcess -- scrolling, selecting a link, moving a cursor, ... -- not physical action itself (clicking a button, moving a mouse, touching a screen, ...). Often several different types UserDirectAction (q.v.) could signify the same UserSignifiedAction.
Children BringingGEToFrontA UserSignifiedAction causing an GUIElement to be logically brought to the front -- of its window if it is an element in a window, and of a ComputerScreen if it is an InterfaceWindow.
 ClosingGraphicalWindowA UserSignifiedAction causing an InterfaceWindow on a ComputerScreen to stop being displayed.
 CoveringGUIElementA UserSignifiedAction causing a GUIElement to be covered completely on a ComputerScreen by at least one other GUIElement.
 HighlightingA UserSignifiedAction causing a program to highlight a piece of text, link, image, or other component visible on the screen.
 JumpingToActivateUIElementA UserSignifiedAction causing the cursor to ``jump'' from its current position to a UIElement, making it ``Active''.
 MaximizingGraphicalWindowA UserSignifiedAction causing an InterfaceWindow to be expanded to cover the complete area of a ComputerScreen -- or possibly the complete vertical range of the screen if the window has a maximum width less than the screen-width. If the window being maximized is logically in front of any other window (which would normally be the case), this would also be a case of CoveringGraphicalWindow.
 MinimizingGraphicalWindowA UserSignifiedAction causing an InterfaceWindow on a ComputerScreen to stop being displayed but to still conceptually exist.
 MovingCursorThe UserSignifiedGraphicalAction is accomplished by a ComputerUser taking a UserDirectAction that is interpreted as signifying that a cursor should be moved. Depending upon program state this could be accomplished by UserDirectActions of MouseMoving, a TouchSurfaceSlide, JoystickMotion, ScrollWheelRotating, KeyboardAction, repeated %&Clicking, or AudioInput.
 OpeningGraphicalWindowA UserSignifiedAction causing the display of an InterfaceWindow on a ComputerScreen.
 PartiallyCoveringGraphicalWindowA UserSignifiedAction causing a GUIElement to be partially covered on a ComputerScreen by at least one other GUIElement.
 ResizingScreenObjectA UserSignifiedAction causing a program to change the size of a display on the ComputerScreen.
 UncoveringGUIElementA UserSignifiedAction causing a covered GUIElement to be completely uncovered on a ComputerScreen.
 UnmaximizingGraphicalWindowA UserSignifiedAction causing an InterfaceWindow to be reduced from covering the complete area of a ComputerScreen to the size and location it had before being maximized. If it was created as maximized, unmaximizing it will shrink it to a default size and location.
 WindowScrollingByUserWindowScrollingByUser consists of moving the contents of a frame in a window (when the logical size of the contents is greater than that of the frame) without moving the window itself.
