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.
Relationships      
Parents computer process An instance of ComputerProcess is a process which manipulates data in the computer.
  UserAction A UserAction is an action taken by a ComputerUser in interacting with a ComputerProcess.
Children ActivatingUIElementA UserSignifiedAction causing a program to make a UIElement the ``active'' element. Making an element active means that user can interact with it -- follow a link, select a menu option, drag the element on the screen, ``push'' a button, etc. The system may display the %&UIElement in a different manner signifying that it is selected.
 force quitAn action taken by the user to terminate an application in an exception manner, rather than by selecting 'quit' in a menu or letting the application terminate normally by itself.
 InputCharacterStringA UserSignifiedAction providing a ComputerProgram with a character string input. This is often the intent of Typing.
 SelectingActiveAreaA UserSignifiedAction informing a ComputerProgram that the current GUIElement with the state GUE_ActiveState is selected. This causes the program controlling the element to take the action that selecting the element is mapped to. After the action has been initiated, unless the action causes a different element to become active or changes the state of the element, the element reverts to GUE_ActiveState. Selecting an ActiveArea_Submitting causes a SubmitAction (of the type associated with the active area) to take place. What is actually submitted may depend upon the state of associated active areas. However, if the active area is a HypertextLink, MenuItem, or dedicated GUIButton the submission may not be state dependent. An off-screen element on an active window can be selected by keyboard action: tabbing to it to make it active and typing the Enter/Return key.
 SubmitActionA SubmitAction is a UserSignifiedAction informing a ComputerProgram to make a user-selected action.
 UserSignifiedGraphicalActionA UserSignifiedAction that is interpreted as signifying a change in a graphical feature (cursor movement, highlighting of an area, etc.).
 view item requestA UserSignifiedAction with the subProcess of RequestingHyperLink, where the RequestingHyperlink causes the the AccessingWebPage, and the WebPage being accessed is a ViewItemPage. If ?AGENT views ?LISTING as part of a ViewItemRequest, then (viewedListing ?AGENT ?LISTING) holds.
