  • Publication number: 20190265856
    Abstract: In general, the subject matter described in this disclosure can be embodied in methods, systems, and computer-readable devices. A computing device presents a user interface that includes first and second images. The computing device receives first user input that moves the user interface in a first direction. The computing device moves the user interface in the first direction by moving the first and second images in the first direction, and modifying a presentation of the second image at the same time that the second image is moved in the first direction, to indicate that the second image is an image that is pannable. The computing device receives second user input that interacts with the second image to pan the second image. The computing device pans the second image by replacing a first portion of the second image with a second portion of the second image.

  • Patent number: 10324599
    Abstract: User selection of a displayed object is detected. The size of the selected object is identified and compared with a move target size threshold. If the size of the selected object does not meet the move target size threshold, then a user actuatable move handle is displayed in a location displaced from the selected object, on the user interface, but visually connected to the selected object. User actuation of the move handle correspondingly moves the object on the user interface.

  • Publication number: 20190179367
    Abstract: An electronic device display may have a color filter layer and a thin film transistor layer. A layer of liquid crystal material may be interposed between the color filter layer and the thin film transistor layer. A layer of polarizer may be laminated onto the surface of the color filter layer. Laser trimming may ensure that the edges of the polarizer are even with the edges of the color filter layer. The thin film transistor layer may have an array of thin film transistors that control pixels of the liquid crystal material in the display. Driver circuitry may be used to control the array. The driver circuitry may be encapsulated in a planarized encapsulant on the thin film transistor layer or may be mounted to the underside of the color filter layer. Conductive structures may connect driver circuitry on the color filter layer to the thin film transistor layer.
