Paper Abstract

In our system developed in Visual C++ for images with intracellular fluorescent dye concentrations of living cells after the boundaries and labels are drawn for all living cells, the new image is pushed into the stack pointer for the purpose of redo function and the window is updated. For the user interface, different buttons and their control algorithms have been tested. In our program we used some special control algorithms to ensure that the user gets less chance to make an error operation. Drawing line can split joined objects and Regions-of-Interest can be selected or removed by drawing a rectangle or an ellipse. Once we select any part of an image by drawing rectangle or ellipse, the cutting button and the file generation button are enabled together with the clear button. Such an approach allows the user not to be concerned so much which operation is suitable at any time and the continuous undo and redo operation encourage the user to perform whatever operation is suitable at any time without being afraid of losing information. Finally the reminding messages will guide the user how to perform operation of the system correctly and to retrieve any removed data.
