Scalability

Applications sometimes need to display widely varying numbers of user interface objects. For example, in an application that monitors the computers of a growing corporation, the number of objects representing computers at a particular site might increase rapidly. When looking for a particular object in a window representing that site, a user might need to view 15 objects in one month or 1500 the next. The user interface of such an application should be scalable. In other words, it should enable users to find, view, and manipulate widely varying numbers of objects.

This book discusses several ways to make your application's user interface more scalable. For example, Chapter 4 describes filtering and searching--features that enhance an application's ability to manipulate large sets of objects.
