Animated Action upon Multiple Objects
Provided is a technique for animating the processing of an action on a
collection of objects in order to overcome the difficulties of current action
The user is provided with the capability of selecting an action to apply to
multiple objects. In addition, the system provides the following capability: collect
the selected objects into a "visual queue"; show the action as a "graphic action
processor"; show the objects being moved graphically from the visual queue into
the graphic action processor. The process is repeated until the object queue is
empty. The queue and action processor are then removed.
The benefits to the user include a visual confirmation of objects selected for
processing, as well as a visual indication of the status of processing.
