Abstract

When a mouse is used to select buttons on a grapical user interface, the only data conveyed is whether a mouse button has been clicked when a mouse pointer is over the icon. Often times the mouse button is clicked in error just as the mouse pointer is moving over an icon and this results in unintended consequences.
