Abstract

A method is described which provides a way of displaying system messages without disrupting the flow of an Online Presentation. The Online Presentation Control Language (OPCL) is a programming language designed to create stand-alone online presentation. An information developer (typically a non-programmer) uses the OPCL's commands to specify Online Presentation structure, displayable text, sounds, animation, and other parts of the presentation. The Online Presentation Development System (OPDS) is a group of programs designed to create stand-alone online presentations. Online presentations include such items as product demonstrations, tutorials, and other programs in which the computer is used to present information. The OPDS consists of three tools: - The OP Compiler - converts the OPCL into object format.
