  • Patent number: 10402067
    Abstract: A method, apparatus, system, and computer program product provide the ability to search for and interact with three-dimensional (3D) objects in a 3D model/drawing. Searches may be conducted on a per object basis (based on properties of the object) and search queries may be amended based on shared/common attributes between objects found in an initial search. Differences in search results can be identified and the causality may be used to perform additional searches. Search results may be listed in a list view and a correspondence between objects in the list view and the modeling view may be visibly discernible. Further, selection of a single object from a search result may focus the view on such an object while removing any occluding objects. Multiple selected objects can be viewed in an array of rotationally synchronized viewports.

  • Patent number: 10320862
    Abstract: Disclosed are various embodiments for providing a live online conference through a computer network to participant user interfaces, wherein feedback is provided to a presenter user interface based on participants revisiting prior section content of the online conference during the live online conference. In one implementation, the participant user interface receives instructions causing the participant user interface to revisit prior section content of the live online conference during the live online conference. The instructions causing participant user interfaces to revisit prior section content during the live online conference are monitored. Based on the monitoring of the instructions, a computer determines a revisiting statistic regarding the participant user interfaces revisiting the prior section content. Feedback based on the revisiting statistic is then provided to the presenter user interface.

  • Patent number: 10275911
    Abstract: System, method, and computer product embodiments for proving a chart with dynamically-adjusted scale labels are described. A graphical user interface (GUI) generates a chart to display a set of data within a display area. The chart includes a plurality of x-axis scale labels to indicate a scale on the x-axis of the chart. The GUI reduces a distance between adjacent x-axis scale labels from the plurality of x-axis scale labels, responsive to detecting a command that re-renders the chart and that reduces the distance between adjacent x-axis scale labels. When the GUI determines that the distance is within a threshold, the GUI increases the distance by rotating each x-axis scale label towards a vertical orientation. Then, the GUI displays the set of data and the plurality of rotated x-axis scale labels within the chart as re-rendered according to the command.

  • Patent number: 10268730
    Abstract: Systems, methods and computer readable media for implementing a Focus-Driven User Interface using a Focus-Driven MVC architecture are described. The Focus-Driven MVC architecture builds on the traditional MVC framework, adding a Focus component between the Controller and Model components. The Focus component implements Focus Logic to handle Focus-Driven features. The Focus component may receive access commands or requests from the Controller, relay those commands to the Model and, in response, obtain data from the Model. The Focus Logic applies rules to the data, determines relevancy rankings for the given property, and sends the processed data to the Controller which, in turn, may update the user interface with the processed data.

  • Patent number: 10228834
    Abstract: A horizontal toolbar presents a hierarchical path terminating at a currently-selected element, beginning at a root element, and including intermediate elements from a hierarchically-related subset of elements having parent-child relationships. A tree representation, provided simultaneously with the horizontal toolbar, includes nodes matching the elements included in the hierarchical path. The tree representation uses branches connecting adjacent parent-child nodes to indicate parent-child relationships and highlights a current node-of-interest in relation to other displayed nodes and matching the currently-selected element in the horizontal toolbar.
