Abstract

User interface (UI) adaptation is applied when a single UI design might not be adequate for maintaining usability in multiple contexts-of-use that can vary according to the user, platform, and environment. Fully-automated UI generation techniques have been criticized for not matching the ingenuity of human designers and manual UI adaptation has also been criticized for being time consuming especially when it is necessary to adapt the UI for a large number of contexts. This paper presents a work-in-progress approach that uses constraints for preserving designer input on concrete user interfaces upon applying adaptive behavior. The constraints can be assigned by the UI designer using our integrated development environment Cedar Studio.
