Subject Re: Building easy to use search guis? How to save queries...
Date Tue, 18 Jul 2006 03:41:39 GMT
Isys desktop search does something along the lines of what you speak of.
There's a screen shot of the UI on this page: <>. The art is a bit too small to read,
but the UI displays the resulting command line as the user builds a query
(small type in lower left of screen shot).

Basically, the user enters a term in the top of the screen, selects an
operand and clicks/enters that operand, then on to the next term and
operand, etc.

The scheme is pretty well-designed. It's very easy to use for novices.

Best regards,
