The point-and-click analog of "type ahead". To manipulate a computer's pointing
device (almost always a mouse in this usage, but not necessarily) and its
selection or command buttons before a computer program is ready to accept such
input, in anticipation of the program accepting the input. Handling this
properly is rare, but it can help make a WIMP environment much more usable,
assuming the users are familiar with the behaviour of the user interface.
