  • Patent number: 5796403
    Abstract: A method of controlling a computer window display of a display system having a display surface of one or more physical screens, provides an integrated workspace wherein multiple applications are displayed, by category, in a coordinated, predetermined area of the display surface. In response to a request inputted to the display system, the requested application display is created. A category of the requested display is ascertained. A lookup is performed in a configuration file to find a match between the category of the requested display and an entry in the configuration file. When a match of categories is found, the display characteristic data is obtained to get the position and size of the display. A pointer points to the next available area of the display area for the category of interest, and the display is created to be positioned within the selected available window.

  • Patent number: 5734380
    Abstract: In a display system having a display surface of one or more physical surfaces, a method controls the presentation of application displays in a multi-window computer environment wherein multiple application displays are displayed. Further, any application display requested to be displayed is caused to be displayed by the method in one of the multi-windows in response to an operator select action. The method comprises the steps of outputting selectable options for each window as specified in a configuration file. The configuration file defines window properties for each window of the multi-window display. The selectable options provide indications of where application displays are to be presented. The option selected is read by the Workspace Management System. The application display is outputted to conform with the option selected, the option indicating the replacement of current application displays with subsequent application displays.

  • Patent number: 4481594
    Abstract: Method and apparatus for filling polygons displayed by a color CRT monitor of a raster graphic system. A graphic controller produces control signals which control the mode of operation of the system, two of which are a fast polygon write, or fast-fill write, mode and a fast polygon display, or display fast-fill, mode. When the system is in the fast polygon write mode, the graphic controller reads fast-fill toggle bits from a frame memory of boundary pixels defining initial and terminal pixels of each fill element. The fast-fill toggle bits of boundary pixels are set if the toggle bit read from memory was not set and, if set, it will reset it. In the fast polygon display mode, the system senses the initial boundary pixel of each fill element by its fast-fill toggle bit being set and applies the color address of the initial boundary pixel to a color look-up memory until the terminal pixel of the fill element is read from the memory.
