I would like some suggestions for how to name the states associated with a statemachine that controls my user interface
my prefered solution would be to have a set of names that describe most screen states a user interface can take on during
interaction with a user. in addition i would like the names to be one word (if possible) and singular (i do not like plural names)
some screen states that are easy to identify are EMPTY, BUSY, SUCCESS, & ERROR, which would make sense for any UI, however I am struggling
for names that describe the first screen presented, e.g. when a user navigates to a screen and has not actually interacted with it yet,
maybe INITIAL, OPENING, BEGINING, INTRODUCTION. also theres the issue that some of these states (names) overlap, for example SUCCESS and
whatever you want to name the first screen state the user sees are one and the same. if i use SUCCESS for both scenarios it feels "odd" as the user
hasnt interacted with the screen when navigating to it for the first time yet they are in the state of SUCCESS.
am i over thinking it?
