Selecting Is Better Than Writing

As much as possible, let the user select rather than write. For example, take advantage of spin-box and list-box controls that don't require written input. When prompting for a date, present the user with a simple calendar on which he or she can pick a date by tapping with the pen.

Keep track of previous entries and allow the user to select one from a list rather than having to rewrite it. For example, when prompting for a name, consider using a combo-box control to provide access to a list of the previous 10 or so names the user has last entered. This confines the potential for recognition errors to the first time the name is written.

When prompting for a filename, provide an option for browsing through directory lists, allowing the user to select a file and path by tapping the filename with the pen.
