What is this gui style called?
I know there is a name for it, but I cant remember it!
I think you're thinking of an "inductive GUI", like this, perhaps: http://www.winsupersite.com/showcase/longhorn_task-based_ui.asp
Yes, thats it!
It's not what Greg is referring to. Zone Alarm has something similar, though it doesn't use icons in the left pane. In fact Explorer is actually using the same thing, though with a tree view.
you mean like add-remove programs on windows XP (and maybe before)?

Sounds like a toolbar
Are you thinking of Multi-SDI?
What about "MultiplePageDialog ICON_STYLE" or "Standard Wizard With Steps"? I'm browsing http://www.jidesoft.com/products/dialog.htm
Apple calls it Master-Detail. If you've used iTunes, the thin Playlist strip is the Master and the larger area is the Detail.
Oh, seems like there are lots of names for it, but Volks was the one I was looking for. Its weird because almost all gui elements have established names. (Toolbar, toolplatte, statusbar etc.)
I definitely vote against Master-Detail. Makes me think of master-detail Access forms.
