Title (EN) SIMULATING A MULTI-TOUCH SCREEN ON A SINGLE-TOUCH SCREEN
(FR) SIMULATION D'UN ÉCRAN TACTILE MULTIPOINT SUR UN ÉCRAN TACTILE MONOPOINT
Abstract:
(EN) Disclosed is a single-touch screen interface that supports two operational states. First is a traditional single-touch state (400). Second is a "simulated multi-touch state" which allows the user to interact with the single-touch screen (102) in much the same way as he would interact with a multi-touch screen. The user, while in the single-touch state, selects (402) the simulated multi-touch state by performing a special "triggering" action, such as clicking or double clicking on the display screen (102). The location of the triggering input defines (402) a "reference point" for the simulated multi-touch state. While in the simulated multi-touch state, this reference point is remembered, and it is combined with further touch input (406) to control (408) a simulated multi-touch operation. When the simulated multi-touch operation is complete, the interface returns (410) to the single-touch state. In some embodiments, the user can also leave the simulated multi-touch state without completing a simulated multi-touch operation.
(FR) L'invention porte sur une interface d'écran tactile monopoint qui supporte deux états opérationnels. Le premier est un état tactile monopoint traditionnel (400). Le second est un « état tactile multipoint simulé » qui permet à l'utilisateur d'interagir avec l'écran tactile monopoint (102) à peu près de la même façon qu'il interagirait avec un écran tactile multipoint. L'utilisateur, dans l'état tactile monopoint, sélectionne (402) l'état tactile multipoint simulé par la réalisation d'une action de « déclenchement » spéciale, telle qu'un clic ou double-clic sur l'écran d'affichage (102). L'emplacement de l'entrée de déclenchement définit (402) un « point de référence » pour l'état tactile multipoint simulé. Dans l'état tactile multipoint simulé, ce point de référence est enregistré, et il est combiné à une autre entrée tactile (406) pour commander (408) une opération tactile multipoint simulée. Lorsque l'opération tactile multipoint simulée est achevée, l'interface revient (410) à l'état tactile monopoint. Dans certains modes de réalisation, l'utilisateur peut également quitter l'état tactile multipoint simulé sans achever une opération tactile multipoint simulée.
