In a graphical user interface, it is common for information to exceed the boundaries of a window; however, users are frequently unaware that additional information exists in portions of the window that must be scrolled to in order to be viewed, even when scroll bar controls appear on the window. Users may benefit from an additional supplementary display mechanism that captures attention and indicates that more content is available for viewing beyond the window borders.
