  • Patent number: 10254945
    Abstract: A user interface control format of one or more user interface controls of a user interface area can be adapted to fit a current contextual user interface activity state in a computer system. The adapting of the format can produce a user interface adaptation instruction that indicates the adapted format. The adapting of the format can use data representing the current contextual user interface activity state in the computer system. Also, the current contextual user interface activity state can be a state other than a state of a displaying computer application. The user interface adaptation instruction can be used in generating the user interface area with the adapted format indicated in the user interface adaptation instruction. The user interface area can be presented with the adapted format on the computer display for the displaying computer application in the computer system.

  • Patent number: 10182397
    Abstract: Enabling a changing of a state of a device based on a hierarchical class of the device is disclosed. Non-macro radio access network (RAN) devices can be comprised in a network connected to a macro RAN device via a gateway RAN device. The gateway RAN device can be connected to a field RAN device via an intermediate RAN device. A state of a field RAN device can be altered based on a criterion. In an embodiment the criterion can be use of the hierarchical class of the RAN device, e.g., a field class RAN device, by an active or idle UE. In an embodiment the criterion can be use, by an active or idle UE, of another RAN device that is a logical neighbor to the field RAN device. Altering the state can result in a power savings or improved interference characteristics of the network.
