Abstract

A form prompt message refers to the prompt message generated when a user accesses to a form. At present, the research on the approach to design the form prompt message is not perfect. Therefore, this paper provides a method to design the form prompt message based on behavior path. The first part of the paper combs through the existing interactive behaviors and the basic theories of prompt message design, then analyzes the interaction among behavior and path, hint and memory load, and plans a hierarchical model of interactive behavior combined with the existing GOMS model. Moreover, this paper discusses the influence of the importance, frequency and circumstance property on evaluating the priority of prompt message, and sorts out a hierarchy diagram of form prompt message based on interactive behavior. Finally, experiments are carried out with this approach to verify the validity of the hierarchy design approach presented in this paper.
