Three Icons for IBM Extended Services, Display and View Files and Logs

       Disclosed is a Display SNA Configuration Log 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,
Display SNA Configuration Log.  This problem was solved by providing
the icon described within this article.

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

      The Display SNA Configuration Log tool will allow the user to
display the log file which contains a history of the user's SNA
configuration selections, errors and changes.

      This icon's metaphor is the magnifying glass to represent the
ability to view a file.  The logger symbol (the file behind the
magnifying glass) symbolizes the configuration log.

      Disclosed is a View Custom Build History File icon for IBM
Extended Services, Version 1.0, within Operating System/2 (OS/2) (see
Fig. 2).
