Bad Dialog

I’m a software developer and consultant using FileMaker Pro as my development platform. As a builder of software applications, I find it important that my software not only work well, but is usable as well as easy to use. I pay close attention to what appears on my screens and printed page.

Below is an example of a dialog box that simply does not work.

I’ll give credit where credit is due. I found the dialog in a review of the TomTom GO 720 GPS. The article is posted on TidBits.

Your comments and thoughts would be welcome.
