Title: (FR) TRAITEMENT DE L'INFORMATION PAR UTILISATION D'UN ASSISTANT DE COMMUNICATION PERSONNEL
(EN) METHOD OF PROCESSING INFORMATION USING A PERSONAL COMMUNICATION ASSISTANT
(DE) VERFAHREN ZUR INFORMATIONSVERARBEITUNG IN EINEM PERSÖNLICHEN KOMMUNIKATIONSGERÄT
Abstract:
(FR) La présente invention concerne un procédé permettant le traitement de l'information par utilisation d'un assistant numérique personnel fonctionnant avec un gestionnaire de barres d'états ou 'SBM' $i((Status Bar Manager)) normalisé et des interfaces de barres d'états. Toutes les applications et la plate-forme de départ du système d'exploitation sont compatibles avec la barre d'états qui est uniformément utilisable pour présenter des messages à barre d'états et coopérer avec ces messages. Dès lors que cela s'avère nécessaire, le SBM relie ensemble toutes les zones barre d'états de toutes les applications (ainsi que la plate-forme de départ du système d'exploitation). Cette invention prend les messages d'états globaux correspondant à des événements entrants et les achemine à la barre d'états de chaque application active. Le SBM achemine également à la barre d'état tous les messages, que le message nécessite une réaction de l'utilisateur ou qu'il ne soit que pour information. Des applications minimales s'affichant par la barre d'états peuvent être lancées à partir de la barre d'états d'une application active sans qu'il soit nécessaire d'avoir d'abord accès à la plate-forme de départ du système d'exploitation. Enfin, le SBM crée une liste des appels téléphoniques sans réponse, laquelle liste comporte un code de raison expliquant pourquoi l'appel est resté sans réponse.
(EN) A method for processing information using a personal digital assistant utilizes a standardized status bar manager ('SBM') and status bar interfaces. All applications and the operating system's launch pad support the status bar which can be uniformly used to both show and interact with status bar messages. The SBM links together all of the status bar areas of all applications (and the operating system launch pad as well) whenever necessary. The present invention routes global status messages corresponding to incoming events to each status bar of every active application. The SBM also routes all messages to the status bar, regardless whether the message requires an action by the user or is for information only. Minimized applications are displayed on and launched from a status bar of an active application without having to first access the operating system launch pad. Finally, the SBM creates an unanswered telephone call list that includes a reason code explaining why the call went unanswered.
