Title (EN) USING SCROLLBARS AS LIVE NOTIFICATION AREAS
(FR) UTILISATION DE BARRES DE DÉFILEMENT COMME ZONES DE NOTIFICATION EN DIRECT
Abstract:
(EN) A vertical or horizontal scrollbar or scrollbar-like navigation component may be used as both a navigation tool and as a live notification area in which a variety of valuable, interesting or other information may be presented. Marks or other icons and/or indicators may be provided in the scrollbars for conveying information and notifications to a user. Cross-document navigation may be provided through a horizontal or vertical pane for allowing a user to see and navigate graphical representations (e.g., text and/or thumbnails) of a variety of documents or other content items, wherein the graphical representations may include summary text or icons for providing a variety of information to the user about associated represented documents and other content items.
(FR) Une barre de défilement verticale ou horizontale ou un composant de navigation similaire à une barre de défilement peut servir à la fois d'outil de navigation et de zone de notification en direct dans laquelle une diversité d'informations utiles, intéressantes ou autres peut être présentée. Des marques ou d'autres icônes et/indicateurs peuvent être fournis dans les barres de défilement pour transmettre des informations et des notifications à un utilisateur. Une navigation entre documents peut être fournie au moyen d'un volet horizontal ou vertical pour permettre à un utilisateur de voir et de parcourir des représentations graphiques (p. ex., un texte et/ou des miniatures) d'une diversité de documents ou d'autres éléments de contenu, les représentations graphiques pouvant comprendre un texte de synthèse ou des icônes pour fournir une diversité d'informations à l'utilisateur concernant les documents représentés associés et les autres éléments de contenu.
