Dynamic Icon Content
A mechanism to allow dynamic variation in the content and appearance of
icons to signal different system states compared to conventional static icons is
The technique provides for the content, appearance, and names associated
with the displaying of icons to vary depending upon system status or data driven
conditions. For example, the icon for the monthly calendar dynamically changes
from one month to another as the monthly "roll over" occurred. If meetings are
scheduled on the icon, the icon color is modified. Similarly, if the state of a
system component changes, then the icon changes to another state, e.g., greyed
out or red.
The approach provides several benefits to the end user. The user is visually
aware of system status and dynamic changes in objects.
