DETAILED DESCRIPTION

      Reference will now be made in detail to exemplary embodiments, and examples are illustrated in the accompanying drawings. The following description refers to the accompanying drawings in which the same numbers in different drawings represent the same or similar elements unless otherwise represented. The implementations set forth in the following description of exemplary embodiments do not represent all implementations consistent with the invention. Instead, they are merely examples of apparatuses and methods consistent with aspects related to the invention as recited in the appended claims.
       FIG. 1A is a flow chart showing a method for displaying content of a short message according to an exemplary embodiment, FIG. 1B is a schematic diagram illustrating a short message displayed in a short message application according to an exemplary embodiment, and FIG. 1C is another schematic diagram illustrating a short message displayed in a short message application according to an exemplary embodiment. The method for displaying content of a short message may be applied to a terminal device (for example: a smart phone, a tablet) and may display the content of the short message by installing a short message application in a terminal device. As shown in FIG. 1A, the method for displaying content of a short message includes following steps S 101-S 103.
      In step S 101, the content of the short message from a short message transmitting terminal is received and a telephone number corresponding to the short message transmitting terminal is determined.
      In an embodiment of the present disclosure, the short message transmitting terminal may be a terminal device. In an embodiment of the present disclosure, the content of the short message may be the content of the short message sent by an ordinary user via the terminal device to another terminal device, a notification message sent by a merchant via the electronic business platform to the terminal device, or a reminder message sent by a telecom operator via its telecom operating server to the terminal device. In an embodiment of the present disclosure, the telephone number of the short message transmitting terminal may be a customer service telephone number provided by the merchant, a customer service telephone number provided by the telecom operator, or a telephone number of the ordinary user.
      In step S 102, a displaying style of the content of the short message in the short message application of the terminal device is determined from a short message displaying rule database according to the telephone number and the content of the short message.
      In an embodiment of the present disclosure, each displaying rule in the short message displaying rule database may include: the telephone number or a segment of the telephone number, characteristics of the content of the short message, the displaying styles corresponding to different content of the short message and/or telephone numbers and operations needed to be provided in the user interface of the short message application (for example, performing a jump according to an operation of clicking a button by the user, performing a jump according to a text link, etc.). For example, if the terminal device receives the reminder message sent from the customer service telephone number of the telecom operator, the corresponding displaying style in the short message displaying rule database may be determined according to the customer service telephone number of the telecom operator. Alternatively, if the terminal device receives the notification message sent from the merchant via the electronic business platform, the corresponding displaying style in the short message displaying rule database may be determined according to the customer service telephone number corresponding to the electronic business platform. Further, if the terminal device receives the ordinary short message from the short message transmitting terminal, the corresponding displaying style in the short message displaying rule database may be determined according to the content of the short message.
      In step S 103, the content of the short message is displayed in the short message application according to the displaying style.
      In an embodiment of the present disclosure, as shown in FIG. 1B, the content of the short message sent by the merchant of the M group-buying website via the customer service telephone number 1069000732880 to the short message application 10 of the terminal device is displayed. In the displayed content of the short message, “http://t.cn/RPvdUJE” is displayed in a form of link in the interface of the short message application, while the dynamic code “460916” and the group-buying password “145380025574” are displayed in a form of consecutive characters. By this style of displaying the content of the short message, the user may directly obtain the key information in the content of the short message, for example, the dynamic code “460916” and the group-buying password “145380025574.” And since “http://t.cn/RPvdUJE” is displayed in a form of link, if the user clicks the link, the URL corresponding to the link may be shown directly, such that the user needs not manually input the link into the browser, thus greatly increasing the convenience of the user operation. In another embodiment of the present disclosure, as shown in FIG. 1C, if the ordinal user “Qi Yunfei” sends the short message about personal information of “Qi Yunfei” to “Zhang Ruohan,” the corresponding displaying style in the short message displaying rule database may be determined to be a business card style according to the content of the short message. If “Zhang Ruohan” sends the short message about train ticket information to “Qi Yunfei” and the terminal device of “Qi Yunfei” detects that the content of the short message is the train ticket information, then the terminal device searches for the displaying style corresponding to the train ticket in the short message displaying rule database, and then displays the content of the short message in a form of train ticket to “Qi Yunfei.” Therefore, there are a variety of displaying styles for displaying the content of the short message in the short message application of the terminal device held by “Qi Yunfei.”
      In this embodiment of the present disclosure, the displaying style of the content of the short message in the short message application of the terminal device is determined from the short message displaying rule database according to the telephone number and the content of the short message, and the content of the short message is displayed in the short message application according to the displaying style, so that the content of the short message may be displayed in diverse ways in the terminal device.
      In an embodiment of the present disclosure, step S 102 includes following steps of: determining priorities of the telephone number and the content of the short message for the displaying style of the content of the short message according to a first displaying rule in the short message displaying rule database; determining the displaying style of the content of the short message in the short message application of the terminal device according to the priorities.
      If the priority of the content of the short message is higher than that of the telephone number, determining the displaying style of the content of the short message in the short message application of the terminal device according to the priorities includes following steps of: identifying consecutive characters in the content of the short message according to a second displaying rule in the short message displaying rule database; determining a displaying style of the consecutive characters as a text link in the short message application of the terminal device.
      In an embodiment of the present disclosure, the method for displaying content of a short message further includes following steps of: monitoring whether the text link is clicked by a user; and determining to jump from a user interface of the short message application to a first user interface corresponding to the text link if it is monitored that the text link is clicked by the user.
      In an embodiment of the present disclosure, if the priority of the telephone number is higher than that of the content of the short message, determining the displaying style of the content of the short message in the short message application of the terminal device according to the priorities includes following steps of: identifying a third displaying rule determined by the short message transmitting terminal corresponding to the telephone number in the short message displaying rule database; determining a button associated with the content of the short message according to the third displaying rule.
      In an embodiment of the present disclosure, the method for displaying content of a short message further includes following steps of: monitoring whether the button is clicked by a user; and determining to jump from a user interface of the short message application to a second user interface corresponding to the button if it is monitored that the button is clicked by the user.
