  • Patent number: 10331461
    Abstract: Techniques are described herein that are capable of virtualizing extension code (e.g., third-party extension code) in an application (e.g., a web application in a browser). A portal of an application is loaded. The portal has an extensibility point via which an extension is to enhance functionality of the application. The extension includes metadata and implementation code. A functionality that the implementation code is configured to provide with regard to the application is automatically determined. The metadata is automatically generated to indicate the functionality in response to the functionality being automatically determined. The metadata is loaded in response to the portal being loaded. Loading of the implementation code is delayed until an interaction indicator is received, in response to loading the metadata. The interaction indicator indicates that a user interaction occurs. The implementation code is loaded based at least in part on receipt of the interaction indicator.

  • Publication number: 20180032487
    Abstract: An SVG system for creating an SVG bundle of svg elements that adhere to a theme is provided. The SVG system accesses svg elements that are to be included in the bundle and accesses theme attributes of the theme. For each svg element, the SVG system retrieves the svg element, establishes a name for the svg element, modifies the svg element to use values for the theme attributes as specified by the theme, and stores the svg element and the established name in an SVG bundle. To use the SVG bundle, a web page includes a specification of values for theme attributes and a reference to an svg element. When the web page is rendered, the svg element is inserted into the web page at the location of the reference and is processed based on values of the theme attributes to generate a graphic for the web page.

  • Patent number: 9792354
    Abstract: A model for displaying multiple user interface elements such that each control includes a container that includes standard functionality across at least a majority of the user interface elements. For instance, such standard functionality might include a part status indication, a title, a content status indication, a command invocation function, a part resizing function, and so forth. The model may also provide for standardization of resizing of user interface elements. For a given user interface element, there would be a predetermined number of possible size and shapes, each corresponding to a different projection of data. For instance, all of the user interface elements on a screen may fall within the predetermined number of possible size and shapes, thereby allowing more functional layout of the user interface on the display.

  • Patent number: 9483549
    Abstract: The management of application state storage associated with a hierarchical application. The hierarchical application includes multiple parent user interface elements, each of at least some having child user interface elements arranged in a corresponding hierarchy. The user may navigate through the hierarchical application. For instance, by selecting a child user interface element of a first parent user interface element having a first hierarchy of child user interface elements, the user might navigate to (and potentially also create) a second parent user interface element having a second hierarchy of child user interface elements. A hierarchical storage agent manages the state of the hierarchical application. The hierarchical storage agent provides application state to a remote storage over an application program interface in a manner that preserves at least some of the hierarchy of one or more parent user interface elements of the hierarchical application.

  • Patent number: 9355180
    Abstract: The customized execution of an executable accessed from a web server. Upon receiving a request for the executable, the web server determines a customization to be applied to the executable. For instance, arguments may be parsed from the Uniform Resource Locator (URL) of the request. The web server then sends a copy of the executable to the client, and provides customization argument(s) in the name of the executable. Thus, the name of the executable may differ, depending on the customization to be applied, although the executable binary itself may be the same. The client receives the executable copy, and interprets its name to determine the customization to be applied. For instance, the client may extract the argument(s) from the name of the executable, and provide those argument(s) to the executable when executed.
