  • Publication number: 20140176428
    Abstract: In a method for controlling a data page displayed on a flexible display of a flexible electronic device, a plurality of gravity sensors located at each side of the flexible electronic device detects current position data of corresponding sides of the flexible electronic device. A curved angle and a curved direction of each side of the flexible electronic device is calculated based on the current position and a preset position of each side. An operation on the flexible electronic device is determined according to the curved angle and the curved direction of each side of the flexible electronic device. An instruction associated with each operation is executed to control movement of the data page displayed on the flexible display.

  • Publication number: 20130212533
    Abstract: An electronic device and a method for unlocking touch screens randomly generates an unlocking sequence that includes one or more data combinations. Each of the data combinations includes one or more sets of coordinates on the touch screen. The nth data combination is selected from the unlocking sequence, and an unlocking icon is displayed on a particular location of the touch screen according to the selected data combination. After there is a touch on the unlocking icon during a predetermined time period, a next data combination in the unlocking sequence is selected to display the unlocking icon on another location of the touch screen, until all the data combinations have been selected. The touch screen is unlocked until the unlocking icon can be touched every time when displayed on different locations of the touch screen.

  • Publication number: 20130169552
    Abstract: An electronic device sets a condition for triggering zooming operations or rotation operations of a file displayed on the touch screen. When the condition has been met, the device determines an equation of a movement route of an object on the touch screen according to data in relation to contacts from the object, determines a distance difference and a tangential angle difference between a present contact and a next contact, and determines whether the file needs to be rotated or zoomed based on an absolute value of the angle difference. When the file needs to be rotated, the device determines a rotation angle based on the angle difference, and controls a rotation operation of the file accordingly. When the file needs to be zoomed, the device determines a zoom ratio based on the distance difference, and controlling a zooming operation of the file accordingly.

  • Publication number: 20020065705
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method for modifying questionnaire contents, comprising a recording procedure, an analysis procedure, and a modification procedure. The method is applied to a questionnaire with a plurality of questions, each of which having a plurality of options. The recording procedure stores in a questionnaire database the selection results of all questions obtained from the investigation using the questionnaire beforehand. The analysis procedure analyzes the selection ratios of all options according to the selection results. The modification procedure deletes a particular question from the questionnaire when the selection ratio of an option in the question is higher than a predetermined value. The specification also discloses a corresponding system of modifying questionnaire contents.
