After looking at some other threads there seems no
direction in whether or not we need a MenuBar or a ToolBar. Has anyone received a perfect on their GUI without a menubar and toolbar? Has anyone
received a perfect on their GUI with a menubar and toolbar?

I received perfect on my GUI, and I only had a menu. If I recall correctly a Menu is a requirement, or automatic failure. Can someone check the instructions.html and make sure I aren't giving bad ad-vice.

thanks Mark. No a menubar is not a requirement. I have one but
I am just about ready to upload my assignment (I also said that back in
November) and any little thing I hear makes me more paranoid than
I already am.

Bill,
I passed with 389/400 and perfect on the gui and did not have a menu or associated toolbar. This covered in my design notes.
Good luck on your submission.

I'm still waiting on my results, but I recall Svetlana Koshkina got a perfect score on GUI and used a task bar and button graphics from Sun's graphics repository. (No mention of menus that I recall.)
[Mark]: If I recall correctly a Menu is a requirement, or automatic failure.
Not in my assignment it's not, but maybe other versions. You (Mark) did an NX beta, right? Maybe that was a requirement for the beta that got dropped. I think that unless you have an assignment that explicitly states a requirement about this, you can get a perfect score either way. I maintain that it's really easy to add menus and graphics - but if you have any problems with it, it's not worth worrying too much about. Give it a try; if it doesn't work, move on.

Hi Mark,
I think you are thinking about this post where a candidate was failed because of their GUI.
Regards, Andrew
