I writing an application so that the user can easily enter in lots of transactions that have been taken from a bank account.
So far my form has a ListView Control and some buttons to make sure I can add,edit and delete transactions.
But I'm not sure how to lay out the interface. I've tried shuffling the control round a few times but I'm never happy with it.
I don't want to make it too cumbersome to add, edit or delete transactions by making the user move the mouse too far to click on what they to do. At the same time, I don't want to make the user interface confusing to use so that I won't have to train the users on how to add, edit or delete transactions.
Does anyone know of any web-sites that show ideas on how to lay out a user interface or know how best to lay them out?
P.s I am limited to using a List View control at the moment because I'm still learning about c# and not ready for the DataView for a while yet.

Look at Windows Explorer, a listview is simply the right pane.
Microsoft has done a lot of presentations in the different OS systems, there should be at least one which fits for your eyes.

Window Explorer uses the right-click in order to add a new object.
It even inserts the file and lets the user re-name it at the same time. The to edit the user has to right-click and choose re-name which makes its easy to rename a file. This capability doesn't seem so obvious with the ListView control - any idea how to make my c# able to rename the highlighted item?

13 martie 2012 10:11So do I need to learn about the tree view in order to edit object easier?

If you don’t know anything about TreeView, how can you use it?
Anyway, I think you can display a ContextMenu that is specific to the highlighted node when you right click in the TreeView Control, see http://support.microsoft.com/kb/811399.

Thats why I'm trying to learn about it :)
Also how do expect me to learn from a Visual Basic KB that you attached - when I'm doing c#?
