The Graphical Buttons Interface is an External GUI File for use with MirageOS, the Flash Application shell for the TI-83 Plus. This Interface displays all the compatible programs on your calculator by their Images, ones that MirageOS-specific programs can have custom designed, and then generic Images for BASIC, TI-82, and ION programs. These Images function as "Buttons" because you can cursor through the various Program Images, and they will be Inverted and shift slightly, giving the impression of "Sinking In" like buttons do. This Interface arranges the buttons in two rows, extending more programs offscreen, to the right. The max number of programs that can be displayed at once is 10, however there is the ability to scroll left and right to view more programs.

ARROWS:      Moves Cursor Up, Down, Left, and Right through the list of
             available programs. Also shifts the buttons Left and Right
             if there are more of them off screen.

ENTER/2ND:   Executes the currently highlighted program.

MODE:        Exits MirageOS back to the TI-83 Plus Homescreen.

ALPHA:       Goes to the Options Screen of the shell.

PLUS:        Increases the current Contrast Level setting.

MINUS:       Decreases the current Contrast Level setting.

X,T,0,n:     Goto the Folders Menu of the shell to change the
             current folder you are viewing the programs of.
STO:         Move the currently highlighted program to another
             folder. Activates the Folders Menu.

TRACE:       Page Left in the list of programs. Moves your cursor
             to the left side of the screen, and then scrolls to
             the left, eight programs at a time.

GRAPH:       Page Right in the list of programs. Moves your cursor
             to the right side of the screen, and then scrolls to
             the right, eight programs at a time.

ON:          Shuts Down the calculator temporarily. Press ON
             again to turn the calculator back on and resume
             in the shell.

The top of the Graphical Buttons Interface shows the MirageOS header, seen in the Program Manager as well as other Interfaces, and the Top-Right corner of the screen shows the name of the current folder you are in. On the bottom of the screen, you will find more detailed information about each program, such as its name that appears in the PRGM menu, its File Size as appears in the Memory Menu of the TI-OS, and the Custom Description that programs can have.
Version 1.0 - Initial Release of Graphical Buttons GUI. (07-25-00)
