For example in a simulation the user needs to order promotional material for later use, once it is done it is done, can't be undone, does not need to be done again. I realize my case is specific you are right, I have not seen this kind of element in normal business applications. The UIs in question use normal GUI controls but are usually skinned to look more gamelike
