Java knows Window, Frame and Dialog. I don't really know about other GUIprogramming languages. But in Java, they are pretty distinct: Window -> the super class: just a GUI rectangle; Frame -> extended from Window: the main App Window with the framing border and the size controls (although it can be undecorated: back to the 'plain' GUI rectangle), also with the corresponding tab in the taskbar (Windows); Dialog -> also extended from Window: owned (interaction) Dialog (owner (Frame, or other Window) sometimes invisible), often modal and not resizeable, no size controls, no tab in the taskbar. Whether this is Java, or rather the GUI OS <- more or less consistent on any GUI, I don't know. --Alien4 (talk) 11:18, 13 July 2010 (UTC)
How about just adding pictures of each and every element?
picture on the left and correct name on the right. And someone immediately sees what he/she is looking for. How simple could it be? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 19:32, 29 August 2015 (UTC)
