Title: METHOD FOR CONTROLLING A DISPLAY DEVICE FOR A VEHICLE AND VEHICLE WITH A DISPLAY DEVICE
Abstract:
The invention relates to a method for controlling a display device for a vehicle, in which a representation (8, 25, 26) of information (7) on a movably mounted display surface (4, 21, 22) is controlled depending on the available space (6) on the display surface (4, 21, 22). In order to allow an optimal usability of the display surface (4, 21, 22), according to the invention a portion of the display surface (4, 21, 22) is hidden from view of a passenger compartment when the display surface (4, 21, 22) moves physically and a remaining, still visible portion (6) defines the available space (6) on the display surface (4, 21, 22). In addition, depending on the physical movement of the display surface (4, 21, 22) and a consequential accompanying size change of the visible portion (6), a layout of the representation (8, 25, 26) of the information (7) is changed such that the information (7) is displayed on the visible portion (6).
