Since this was the very first GUI we had ever designed we went with a very simple approach for our Newspaper's frontpage. We knew the user would need to be able to generate his/her newspaper as well as set their custom prefrences. So we opted to have a frontpage in the following format.
The page consisted of 2 buttons. One for Generating a Newspaper, the other to bring up the Settings Menu. The page also had extra space below these buttons so that a Textfeild for the newspaper could be added at a later date.
The Generate Paper button
displayed a pop up textfield telling the user that this option was currentlty unavailible.
Modify News Settings
The Modify News Settings button
brings up a new window for the user to select his or her settings and save them to a file. We will go into more detail on this in The settings page
We decided to put in a pop up menu in addition to the buttons so that the user had the option to use them instead of the buttons. The menu system was a popup that looked like this.
