Note: Text based on automatic Optical Character Recognition processes. Please use the PDF version for legal matters

CLAIMS

1 . An apparatus comprising:

a display screen;

a network interface;

a memory device;

at least one processor to:

render on the display screen a graphical user interface having a plurality of rows, each row having a product field, a price field, and a size field;

detect actuation of a first input;

in response to detecting actuation of the first input, change a status indicator stored in the memory device to indicate that a cursor is about to hover over a given row of the plurality of rows;

detect a movement of the cursor over the given row;

in response to detecting the cursor hovering over the given row, render a drop down menu with different size options for an order associated with the given row on which the cursor hovers;

detect a selection of a size option in the drop down menu; and in response to the selection of the size option, transmit, via the network interface, an order for a product specified in the product field of the given row with a size corresponding to the selected size option.

2. The apparatus of claim 1 , further comprising a keyboard, wherein the first input is an actuation of a key on the keyboard.

3. The apparatus of claim 1 , wherein the different size options include a bid size, a buy size, a sell size, and an offer size.

4. The apparatus of claim 1 , wherein the at least one processor is further configured to superimpose the drop down menu over the size field.

5. The apparatus of claim 1 , wherein the at least one processor is further configured to render the different size options in increments of fifty.

6. The apparatus of claim 1 , wherein the at least one processor is further configured to render fifty as a lowest available size option of the different size options.

7. The apparatus of claim 1 , wherein the at least one processor is further configured to render two hundred and fifty as a highest available size option of the different size options.

8. The apparatus of claim 1 , wherein the at least one processor is further configured to detect multiple selections of the size option in the drop down menu; and transmit, via the network interface, orders corresponding to the multiple selections for the product specified in the product field of the given row with the size corresponding to the selected size option.

9. A method comprising:

rendering, by at least one processor, on a display screen, a graphical user interface having a plurality of rows, each row having a product field, a price field, and a size field;

detecting, by the at least one processor, actuation of a first input;

in response to detecting actuation of the first input, changing, by the at least one processor, a status indicator stored in a memory device to indicate that a cursor is about to hover over a given row of the plurality of rows;

detecting, by the at least one processor, a movement of the cursor over the given row;

in response to detecting the cursor hovering over the given row, rendering, by the at least one processor, a drop down menu with different size options for an order associated with the given row on which the cursor hovers;

detecting, by the at least one processor, a selection of a size option in the drop down menu; and

in response to the selection of the size option, transmitting, by the at least one processor, an order via a network interface for a product specified in the product field of the given row with a size corresponding to the selected size option.

10. The method of claim 9, further comprising a keyboard, wherein the first input is an actuation of a key on the keyboard.

1 1 . The method of claim 9, wherein the different size options include a bid size, a buy size, a sell size, and an offer size.

12. The method of claim 9, further comprising superimposing, by the at least one processor, the drop down menu over the size field.

13. The method of claim 9, wherein the at least one processor is further configured to render the different size options in increments of fifty.

14. The method of claim 9, further comprising rendering, by the at least one processor, fifty as a lowest available size option of the different size options.

15. The method of claim 9, further comprising rendering, by the at least one processor, two hundred and fifty as a highest available size option of the different size options.

16. The method of claim 9, further comprising:

detecting, by the at least one processor, multiple selections of the size option in the drop down menu; and

transmitting, by the at least one processor, via the network interface, orders corresponding to the multiple selections for the product specified in the product field of the given row with the size corresponding to the selected size option.

17. A non-transitory computer readable medium with instructions stored therein which, when executed, cause at least one processor to:

render on a display screen a graphical user interface having a plurality of rows, each row having a product field, a price field, and a size field;

detect actuation of a first input;

in response to detecting actuation of the first input, change a status indicator stored in a memory device to indicate that a cursor is about to hover over a given row of the plurality of rows;

detect a movement of the cursor over the given row;

in response to detecting the cursor hovering over the given row, render a drop down menu with different size options for an order associated with the given row on which the cursor hovers;

detect a selection of a size option in the drop down menu; and in response to the selection of the size option, transmit, via the network interface, an order for a product specified in the product field of the given row with a size corresponding to the selected size option.

18. The non-transitory computer readable medium of claim 17, wherein the first input is an actuation of a key on a keyboard.

19. The non-transitory computer readable medium of claim 1 7, wherein the different size options include a bid size, a buy size, a sell size, and an offer size.

20. The non-transitory computer readable medium of claim 17, wherein the instructions stored therein, when executed, further cause the at least one processor to detect multiple selections of the size option in the drop down menu; and transmit, via the network interface, orders corresponding to the multiple selections for the product specified in the product field of the given row with the size corresponding to the selected size option.
