Design patterns

All knowledge needed to perform MyUI user interface generation and adaptation is contained in the MyUI design patterns.

MyUI achieves accessibility by composing design patterns which provide proven solutions for specific interaction situations and user characteristics, environmental conditions and devices. The user interface is adapted by switching from one pattern to another pattern which is assumed to be the most appropriate for the current context.

All MyUI design patterns are included in the MyUI patterns repository, a publicly available media wiki. Thus, all the knowledge and rules engaged in MyUI user interface adaptation are easily accessible to everyone.
