Three Icons for IBM Extended Services, SNA Configure and Traces

       Disclosed is a Start/Stop CM Trace icon for IBM Extended
Services, Version 1.0, within Operating System/2* (OS/2*) (see Fig.
1).

      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,
Start/Stop CM Trace.  This problem was solved by providing the icon

This icon will appear within the Communications Manager group.

the user's workstation.
