Title
(EN) CLICK DISAMBIGUATION ON A TOUCH-SENSITIVE INPUT DEVICE
(FR) RECONNAISSANCE DE CLIC SUR UN DISPOSITIF D'ENTRÉE TACTILE
Abstract
(EN) The surface of an touch-sensitive input device may act as a physical button that the user may push down to perform a click or other operation. For example, the user may push down the surface of the input device with one finger for a left click and push down the surface of the input device with two fingers for a right click. In one aspect, a system for detecting a left click or a right click when the user pushes down the surface of the input device is provided. When the system first detects that the surface of the input device is pushed down, the system may wait for a short period of time before making a determination of whether the user is pushing down the surface with one finger or two fingers. During this time, the system may collect additional information to make a more reliable determination.
(FR) La surface d'un dispositif d'entrée tactile peut agir comme un bouton physique que l'utilisateur peut enfoncer pour exécuter un clic ou une autre opération. Par exemple, l'utilisateur peut enfoncer la surface du dispositif d'entrée avec un seul doigt pour un clic gauche et enfoncer la surface du dispositif d'entrée avec deux doigts pour un clic droit. Selon un aspect de l'invention, un système permettant de détecter un clic gauche ou un clic droit lorsque l'utilisateur presse la surface du dispositif d'entrée est décrit. Lorsque le système détecte que la surface du dispositif d'entrée est pressée, le système peut attendre pendant une courte période de temps avant de déterminer si l'utilisateur presse la surface avec un seul doigt ou avec deux doigts. Pendant ce temps, le système peut collecter des informations additionnelles pour effectuer une détermination plus fiable.
