User interface events provide valuable information about user behavior with respect to an application's user interface and therefore are considered as an important source of data for usability evaluation. Since usability evaluation is based on tasks that users perform, it is crucial to capture user interface events with sufficient information for task identification. However, how to make it possible is still an open question. We describe an approach to investigate the use of the aspect-oriented technique with assistance of localized instrumentation to capture task-based event traces. We also present a proof-of-concept tool to demonstrate its effectiveness and discuss its limitations.
