CLAIMS

What is claimed is:

1. A method comprising:

establishing a tab sliding bar including multiple buttons;

setting a focusing area at an area of a display screen;

obtaining information of a tab button that has fallen within the focusing area along with a sliding movement of the tab sliding bar; and

using information of the tab button as input information at a page.

2. The method as recited in claim 1, further comprising displaying the page according to the input information.

3. The method as recited in claim 1, wherein the tab sliding bar is slidable.

4. The method as recited in claim 1, further comprising, when the page is initially displayed or refreshed, displaying the tab sliding bar.

5. The method as recited in claim 4, further comprising:

determining a default tab button among the multiple tab buttons at the tab sliding bar; and

displaying the default tab button at the focusing area.

6. The method as recited in claim 1, wherein the page comprises a list of search results.

7. The method as recited in claim 6, wherein the list of search results includes more business objects.

8. The method as recited in claim 7, wherein the using information of the tab as the input information at the page comprises:

re-ranking the search results according to the input information; and

displaying the re -ranked search results.

9. The method as recited in claim 1, wherein the obtaining information of the tab buttons that has fallen within the focusing area comprises:

establishing a coordinate system covering the display screen; and

assigning a respective coordinate to the focusing area and each of the multiple tab buttons; and

when a time period that the multiple buttons are not slid is more than a first time threshold, determining a respective tab button with a minimal coordinative difference from the focusing area as the tab button that has fallen within the focusing area.

10. The method as recited in claim 9, further comprising modifying a respective coordinate of a respective tab button that has not fallen within the focusing area to be outside the display screen in the coordinate system.

11. The method as recited in claim 9, further comprising:

when the page is initially displayed or refreshed, displaying the tab sliding bar; and adjusting an attribute of the tab sliding bar such that a default tab button at the tab sliding bar is displayed at the focusing area and one or more tab buttons other than the default tab button are located outside of the area of the display screen in the coordinate system.

12. The method as recited in claim 8, further comprising, when the sliding movement at the page is detected, modifying a transparent degree of the tab button that is displayed at the page.

13. A method comprising:

establishing a tab sliding bar including multiple buttons;

setting a focusing area at an area of a display screen;

establishing a coordinate system covering the display screen; and

assigning a respective coordinate to the focusing area and each of the multiple tab buttons; and

changing the respective coordinate of each of the multiple tab buttons along with a sliding movement of the tab sliding bar.

14. The method as recited in claim 13, further comprising when a time period that the multiple buttons are not slid is more than a first time threshold, determining a respective tab button with a minimal coordinative difference from the focusing area as the tab button within the focusing area.

15. The method as recited in claim 13, further comprising modifying a respective coordinate of a respective tab button that has not fallen within the focusing area to be outside the display screen in the coordinate system..

16. The method as recited in claim 13, further comprising:

re-ranking search results at a page displayed at the display screen according to the input information; and

displaying the re -ranked search results.

17. A system comprising:

a focusing module that sets up a focusing area at an area of a display screen and obtains information of a tab button among multiple tab buttons of a tab sliding bar that has fallen within the focusing area along with a sliding movement of the tab sliding bar; and

a displaying module that uses the information of the tab button that has fallen within the focusing area as input information at a page and displays the page according to the input information.

18. The system as recited in claim 17, further comprising a coordinate module that constructs a coordinate system covering the area of the display screen, assigns a coordinate to the focusing area and each tab button respectively, and, when a time period that the multiple buttons are not slid is more than a first time threshold, determines a respective tab button with a minimal coordinative difference from the focusing area as the tab button within the focusing area.

19. The system as recited in claim 17, further comprising a transparency module that, when the sliding movement at the page is detected, modifies a transparent degree of the displayed tab button at the page.

20. The system as recited in claim 17, further comprising a tab bar module that, when the page is initially displayed or refreshed, displays the tab sliding bar, and modifies an attribute of the tab sliding bar so that a respective tab button determined as a default tab button in the tab sliding bar is displayed in the focusing area.
