Title (EN) MULTITASKING AND FULL SCREEN MENU CONTEXTS
(FR) CONTEXTES DE MENU EN MODE MULTITÂCHE ET EN PLEIN ÉCRAN
Abstract:
(EN) Multitasking and full screen menu contexts are described. In one or more implementations, an input is received to cause output of a menu in a user interface of a computing device. Responsive to this receipt, a determination is made as which of a plurality of portions displayed simultaneously in the user interface in a multitasking mode has focus, each of the plurality of portions corresponding to an output of a respective one of a plurality of applications. Responsive to the determination, output is caused of the menu as associated with the focused portion of the user interface and having a representation of at least one function based the focused portion, the representation selectable to cause performance of the function.
(FR) L'invention concerne des contextes de menu en mode multitâche et en plein écran. Dans une ou plusieurs mises en œuvre, une saisie est reçue et provoque la sortie d'un menu dans une interface utilisateur d'un dispositif informatique. En réponse à cette réception, il est déterminé quelle partie d'une pluralité de parties affichées simultanément dans l'interface utilisateur dans un mode multitâche est active, chaque partie de la pluralité de parties correspondant à une sortie d'une application respective d'une pluralité d'applications. La détermination provoque la sortie du menu tel qu'il est associé à la partie active de l'interface utilisateur et comportant une représentation d'au moins une fonction dépendant de la partie active, la représentation pouvant être sélectionnée pour provoquer l'exécution de la fonction.
