A nine-step method for overcoming the limitations of traditional models when designing visual applications is presented. Microsoft Visual Basic is used to demonstrate the technique that can be applied to most visual programming languages. The method described takes account of factors such as an interface driven approach, the psychology of programmer commitment, the need to develop readable code, and provides a method of modularly designing detailed test documents. The method has proved to be suitable for existing Visual Basic developers and those wishing to move from procedural into visual programming.
