(EN) AN INTERFACE ELEMENT FOR A COMPUTER INTERFACE
(FR) ÉLÉMENT D'INTERFACE POUR INTERFACE D'ORDINATEUR
Abstract:
(EN) The present invention provides method of manipulating a displayed object capable of interacting with an interface element of a computing interface. The computing interface has a display module for displaying the displayed object in a display area, and which causes the displayed object to interact with the interface element and manipulating the displayed object according to the nature of the input received. The manipulation includes varying the size of the displayed object when the received input results in movement of the displayed object, into, out-of, or through a region of the display area designated as belonging to the interface element.
(FR) L'invention porte sur un procédé qui permet de manipuler un objet affiché capable d'interagir avec un élément d'interface d'une interface d'ordinateur. L'interface d'ordinateur comprend un module d'affichage destiné à afficher l'objet affiché dans une zone d'affichage, lequel module d'affichage permet de faire interagir l'objet affiché avec l'élément d'interface et de manipuler l'objet affiché en fonction de la nature d'une entrée reçue. La manipulation consiste à varier la taille de l'objet affiché lorsque l'entrée reçue entraîne un mouvement de l'objet affiché dans, hors ou à travers une région de la zone d'affichage désignée comme appartenant à l'élément d'interface.
