  • Publication number: 20220156447
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and apparatus, including computer programs encoded on computer storage media, for adaptive column selection. One of the methods includes obtaining a size of a display area. The method includes obtaining column descriptors, each column descriptor identifying a column and a column width. The method includes determining a set of columns to present, including comparing the column width of a column to an available size remaining, and including the column in the set in response to determining that the column size is less than the available size. The method includes calculating an aggregate width of all the columns in the set. The method includes allocating a portion of the size to each column in the set of columns based on a ratio of width of the respective column and the aggregate width. The method also includes presenting the columns in the set of columns on the display area.

  • Publication number: 20210185002
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and apparatus, including computer programs encoded on computer storage media, for a watermark-based message queue. One of the methods includes receiving a first connection request for messages associated with a user device. A first connection session is established with the user device. A message queue of messages associated with the user device is identified, each message in the message queue is associated with a respective timestamp, and the message queue is associated with a current watermark that identifies a first timestamp. An oldest message in the message queue at the time the first connection session was established is identified. An updated watermark that identifies a second timestamp associated with the oldest message is associated with the message queue. One or more messages that have a timestamp newer than or equal to the first timestamp identified by the current watermark is provided to the user device.
