Title (EN) APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR CONTROLLING PARTICULAR OPERATION OF ELECTRONIC DEVICE USING DIFFERENT TOUCH ZONES
(FR) APPAREIL ET PROCÉDÉ POUR COMMANDER UN FONCTIONNEMENT PARTICULIER DE DISPOSITIF ÉLECTRONIQUE UTILISANT DIFFÉRENTES ZONES TACTILES
Abstract:
(EN) An electronic device has a graphical user interface (GUI) such as a touch screen and a physical user interface (PUI) such as a touch pad. A first touch zone in the GUI is disposed adjacently and symmetrically to a second touch zone in the PUI. The touch zones may receive continuous contacts that occur thereon. The continuous contacts may be accepted as a single gestural input, which is used to control a particular operation of the electronic device.
(FR) L'invention concerne un dispositif électronique ayant une interface utilisateur graphique (GUI) telle qu'un écran tactile et une interface utilisateur physique (PUI) telle qu'un pavé tactile. Une première zone tactile dans la GUI est disposée de manière adjacente et symétrique à une seconde zone tactile dans la PUI. Les zones tactiles peuvent recevoir des contacts continus qui se produisent sur celles-ci. Les contacts continus peuvent être acceptés comme une entrée gestuelle unique, qui est utilisée pour commander un fonctionnement particulier du dispositif électronique.
