Icon for IBM Extended Services, Verify SNA Network Definitions

       Disclosed is an icon for IBM Extended Services, Version
1.0, within Operating System/2* (OS/2*) (see the figure).

      Object-oriented graphical user interfaces are based upon icons
and other visuals.  Icons are the visual metaphors that represent
objects that may be manipulated within an application.  The icon
should represent the user's perception of the purpose of the object.

      An icon was required to represent visually the OS/2
Presentation Manager* window's function for Extended Services, Verify
SNA Network Definitions.  This problem was solved by providing the
icon described within this article.

      The IBM Extended Services, Version 1.0, Verify SNA Network
Definitions icon is a minimized object of an OS/2 Presentation
Manager window.  This icon will appear within the Communications
Manager group.

      The Verify SNA Network Definitions tool will allow the user to
verify the integrity of the user's configuration of the SNA
parameters.  The verification process may produce information,
warning, and/or error messages that are logged to a message log.

      This icon's metaphor is a folder as a symbol of a file (the
configuration file).  The check overlaying the file is a symbol that
the file is verified.
