Title
(EN) COMMAND USER INTERFACE FOR DISPLAYING MULTIPLE SECTIONS OF SOFTWARE FUNCTIONALITY CONTROLS
(FR) INTERFACE UTILISATEUR DE COMMANDE POUR AFFICHER DE MULTIPLES SECTIONS DE COMMANDES DE FONCTION LOGICIELLE
Abstract
(EN)
To increase command-access efficiency and to optimize a user's available user interface work space, an improved user interface is provided for displaying logical groupings of selectable software functionality controls that are associated with one or more selected top-level functionalities. Upon selection of a top-level functionality tab, selectable functionalities associated with the top-level functionality tab are divided into logical groupings and are presented in a customizable functionality control section below the tab. Upon selection of a different top-level functionality tab, selectable functionalities associated with the subsequently selected top-level functionality tab may either replace the first functionality control section or may be displayed in a separate functionality control section adjacent to the first functionality control section if real estate is available in the user interface.
(FR)
Selon l'invention, pour augmenter l'efficacité d'accès à une commande et pour optimiser l'espace de travail d'interface utilisateur disponible de l'utilisateur, une interface utilisateur améliorée est utilisée pour afficher des groupements logiques de commandes de fonction logicielle sélectionnables qui sont associées à une ou à plusieurs fonctions de niveau supérieur sélectionnées. Lors de la sélection d'un onglet de fonction de niveau supérieur, des fonctions sélectionnables associées à l'onglet de fonction de niveau supérieur sont divisées en groupements logiques et sont présentées dans une section de commande de fonction personnalisable sous l'onglet. Lors de la sélection d'un onglet de fonction de niveau supérieur différent, des fonctions sélectionnables associées à l'onglet de fonction de niveau supérieur ultérieurement sélectionné peuvent soit remplacer la première section de commande de fonction, soit être affichées dans une section de commande de fonction séparée adjacente à la première section de commande de fonction si la place est disponible dans l'interface utilisateur.
