This Guide describes the standards of ‘look and feel’ to which you should write a RISC OS application. The main aim of the Guide is to help all developers to give their applications a common and consistent look and feel so that users will be able to find their way around new programs easily and will be able to use applications together when appropriate. There is advice on how to implement this, and detailed descriptions of how to produce the icons you will need to use in your dialogue boxes and windows.
