The list of common GUI items


I need a glossary with graphical examples of elements accompanied by their (I hope) standardized names. Is there some centralized resource or every framework/platform out there has it's own naming conventions?

Relevant controls and their official names are typically listed in the respective Interface Guidelines for each platform:

  • For OS X, there's the Apple Human Interface Guidelines which has the "official" names for the Mac platform (see especially the "Controls" chapter).
  • For the Windows platform, the Windows UX Interaction Guidelines portion of the MSDN has a Visual Index of controls.
