(TCO 9) Identify an example of one of each of the following GUI design errors in Figure 2.
How could each of the three errors be corrected to improve the user experience?
There is a rectangular bright red windows form that is approximately two times longer than it is tall. The text of the form as described in the title bar reads Form1. There is a menustrip object that is the length of the form from left to right approximately ¼ inch tall. There are 2 menu items on that menustrip, the text of the first reads Start and the second reads End. On the windows form titled Form1 are a total of 13 objects scattered throughout the form.

The control that is in the upper-left portion of the form is a combobox control. The combo-box control is approximately 1 inch from the left edge of the form. Just beneath the combobox is a list-box control with the background color set to green. The listbox with the green background is approximately 1 and ½ inch from the left edge of the form. Just beneath that listbox is a button control which reads Order on it. The button is approximately ½ inch from the left edge of the form. The button is very large, approximately 1 and ¼ inch tall and 3 inches long.

To the right of the 3 controls mentioned already are 3 more controls. These controls would be considered to be in the middle of the form. The first control in the middle and closest to the top of the form is a label control which reads TOTAL, the entire word is capitalized and set to bold format. Just beneath that label and slightly to the right is a groupbox control which reads Menu. Inside the groupbox control is 5 radio-button controls. The radiobutton controls have the following text from top to bottom: Hamburger, Chicken Fingers, Medium Fries, Large Fries, and Pizza. The text Chicken Fingers is a slightly larger font then the others, and the word Pizza is misspelled. Also, only the two top radiobuttons are aligned together. There is various spacing between all the radio-buttons, as well. Just outside the bottom of the group-box is a radiobutton control with the text Cheeseburger on it.

Lastly, there are 2 button controls on the right most portion of the screen. The first has the text Reset in blue letters on the gray button and the second button has the text OK with both letters capitalized.
