In this study, we examine common interactive forms in digital/electronic guides and digital archives and explore such form users' possible control views, using experimental method with a 1x2 factor design and letting the object view and frame view be an independent variable while the users' cognition conformance a dependent variable. The main ndings from this study are: (1) For all drag controls, be they for exhibit objects or graphics,the controls all belong to an “object view,” to which both the group of users with a design background and the other group without all agree; (2) For translational controls, the cognitions between said two groups are different; the majority of the group with a design background recognize the “frame view”, while the majority of those with no design background the “object view”; (3) Usage cognition will incur some gap between an object and a graphic, as an exhibit thing, and the gap is most noticeable in translational controls; (4) Object VR guide controls, be their users with or without a design background, all belong to an “object view,” and the users' cognitions under panoramic VR controls with various backgrounds are still quite scattering
