The Humble Dialog Box

Martin Fowler: 07 Feb 2022

A 2002 article by Michael Feathers. This article introduced the idea of dealing with a hard-to-test GUI behavior by minimizing the behavior within the GUI element, moving as much as possible to a separate object that’s easier to test. This idea was generalized into the Humble Object pattern.
