Title
(EN) DISPLAY AND INTERACTION METHOD IN A USER INTERFACE
(FR) PROCÉDÉ D'AFFICHAGE ET D'INTERACTION DANS UNE INTERFACE UTILISATEUR
Abstract
(EN)
A display and interaction method in a user interface is provided. The user interface includes a touch-sensitive display, and can track a position and/or movement of a pointer along a z-axis that extends normally from the display. An interactive item is displayed on the display, and selection of the interactive item is received from the pointer. The position and movement of the pointer along the z-axis relative to the selected interactive item is tracked, and the display of at least one additional selectable option associated with the interactive item is initiated based thereon.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un procédé d'affichage et d'interaction dans une interface utilisateur. L'interface utilisateur comprend un écran tactile et peut suivre une position et/ou un mouvement d'un pointeur le long d'un axe z qui s'étend normalement depuis l'écran. Un élément interactif est affiché sur l'écran, et la sélection de l'article interactif est reçue en provenance du pointeur. La position et le mouvement du pointeur le long de l'axe z par rapport à l'article interactif sélectionné sont suivis, et l'affichage d'au moins une option sélectionnable supplémentaire associée à l'article interactif est initié sur la base de ce dernier.
