  • Publication number: 20120124472
    Abstract: The invention is directed to a method, computer system, and computer program for providing a user feedback regarding available mouse gestures. Each of the mouse gestures comprises a predetermined sequence of one or more mouse movements, and corresponds to a predetermined action or command. After the gesture is initiated, the feedback is provided to the user when a predetermined timer expires since the user initiated the gesture or the last mouse movement. This allows for feedback to be provided to users who get lost mid-gesture, without providing unnecessary feedback to a more experienced user who is able to quickly perform the gesture. The feedback can instruct the user as to each available gesture, along with the corresponding action or command.
