Title
(EN) SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR NAVIGATING IN MULTIPLE WINDOWS
(FR) SYSTEME ET PROCEDE DE DEPLACEMENT DANS DES FENETRE MULTIPLES
Abstract
(EN)
Method of navigating on a display (101). A cursor (108) is displayed within a first portion (window 102) of the display. The first portion has edges and displays a portion of information (portion of document 104). In response to movement of a pointing device, the cursor is moved within the first portion of the display. If the cursor comes within a particular distance of an edge of the first portion of the display, at least a partially different portion of the information is displayed. In response to a command and in response to movement of the pointing device, the cursor is moved beyond the first portion of the display. The information may comprise a document (104, 105), a graphic (107, 110), or a document including at least a graphic. The display may comprise a display of a word processor, a display of a web browser, or other display. A method of navigating on a display is described. A method of navigating on a display of a web browser and system for navigating on a display are also described.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un procédé permettant les déplacements sur un écran (10) d'affichage. Un curseur (108) est affiché dans une première portion (fenêtre 102) de l'écran. Cette première portion comporte des bords et affiche une portion d'information (portion de document 104). En réponse au mouvement d'un dispositif de pointage, le curseur se déplace à l'intérieur d'une première portion de l'affichage. Si le curseur arrive à une distance donnée du bord de la première portion de l'affichage, au moins une portion d'information partiellement différente est affichée. En réponse à une commande et en réponse au mouvement du dispositif de pointage, le curseur est déplacé au-delà de le première portion de l'affichage. L'information affichée peut comprendre un document (104, 105), un graphique (107, 110), ou un document comportant au moins un graphique. L'écran d'affichage peut comprendre l'affichage d'un système de traitement de texte, l'affichage d'un explorateur Web etc. L'invention concerne également un procédé réglant les déplacement sur l'écran d'affichage d'un explorateur Web et un système de déplacement sur un écran d'affichage.
