Abstract or Summary
  • The temporal behavior in applications involving visual data can be critical for the correctness of some programs. Forms/3 allows the user to specify temporal behaviors in an independent way, without introducing extraneous code in the original spreadsheet, whereas some other languages define new language devices specific to time. In this thesis, we present the implementation of a new user interface for temporal programming in Forms/3 and the results of two empirical studies. The results of the first study show that one of the models for temporal programing in Forms/3 is more suitable for end users than a traditional stream-based approach representative of the approach used by many other languages. The results of our second experiment show that the explicit information provided by the approach can help the users to judge the correctness of their spreadsheets.
