GUI - ( Widget | Graphical element)

About

A widget is a user interface object in a graphical user interface (GUI), such as a button or a scroll bar.

Widgets range:

  • from simple objects that have one value or operation (e.g., check boxes and menu items),
  • to complex (composite objects) that contain many managed sub-objects (e.g., trees and grids).

Widget is not for me a graphical control element or control. as said in wikipedia. (Widget_(GUI))
