Abstract: The present invention provides a method for replacing the language of the user interface without having to restart the application. The method is used to replace the language of the user interface in the same set of the computer. When user chooses a desired language, the corresponding external language file is searched at first. The corresponding language string is subsequently searched. Afterwards, the language replacement is completed and the desired language is displayed on the user interface by directly redrawing the user interface without having to close the application. The present invention allows users to choose and replace the user interface of different language per their preference. Moreover, the new language can be displayed on the user interface without having to restart the application. Therefore, the present invention truly provides the feature of multiple languages can be used selectively in the same user interface.
Abstract: A method for scanning and autocropping the valid scope of a frame or consecutive frames of negative film comprises several steps, including step (A) through step (G). Step (A) is to build a database of negative film. Step (B) is to preview a negative film frame for obtaining a plurality of vertex coordinates. Step (C) is to calculate coordinates of the center of the frame according to the vertex coordinates obtained. Step (D) is to input the brand name of the negative film through an input interface of the scanner driver. Step (E) is to search the database for a valid frame scope of the negative film according to the brand name thereof. Step (F) is to calculate the plurality of vertex coordinates in the valid frame scope according to the coordinates of center and the valid frame scope of the negative film. And, step (G) is to display a cropped scope, that is the valid frame scope of the negative film, according to the plurality of the vertex coordinates in the valid frame scope of the negative film.
