    Abstract: A social networking system enables users to interact through a content item in real time by presenting an interaction bar to a user viewing a content item page associated with the content item. The social networking system presents the content item pages for content items along with a content item header. The content item header remains at a fixed position on the display of a viewing user's client device at the top of the display. If the social networking system receives an interaction with a content item, the social networking system can identify users who are viewing the content item page associated with the content item and present an interaction bar that describes the interaction in the content item header. To determine whether to present an interaction bar to a viewing user, the social networking system can calculate an affinity score of a viewing user for the interaction.

  • Patent number: 10534516
    Abstract: Usability of a device having a user interface that contains a plurality of user-selectable elements presented in a spatial arrangement that varies over time is improved by storing the spatial arrangement at an initial given time in a memory and, upon receiving user input at a later time, applying the user input denoting a selection within the spatial arrangement as at the initial given time stored in the memory, in order to achieve the automatic selection of the element that existed at the selected location within the arrangement at a period of time before the selection was made, rather than the selection of the element that exists within the arrangement at the actual time of the selection being made.

  • Patent number: 10474342
    Abstract: One example method for navigating a scrollable user interface includes outputting to a display device the scrollable user interface, the scrollable user interface including a scroll-control target. The method further includes receiving a pointer input, and moving a position of a virtual pointer on the scrollable user interface responsive to the pointer input. Responsive to the virtual pointer being within a first region of the scroll-control target, the scrollable user interface is scrolled at a first speed. Responsive to the virtual pointer being within a second region of the scroll-control target, the scrollable user interface is scrolled at a second speed, faster than the first speed.

  • Patent number: 10469439
    Abstract: A social networking system enables users to interact through a content item in real time by presenting an interaction bar to a user viewing a content item page associated with the content item. The social networking system presents the content item pages for content items along with a content item header. The content item header remains at a fixed position on the display of a viewing user's client device at the top of the display. If the social networking system receives an interaction with a content item, the social networking system can identify users who are viewing the content item page associated with the content item and present an interaction bar that describes the interaction in the content item header. To determine whether to present an interaction bar to a viewing user, the social networking system can calculate an affinity score of a viewing user for the interaction.

  • Patent number: 10445290
    Abstract: A system, method, and computer program product for interactively viewing output log files in an electronic design automation framework. An interactive log file viewer may be configured to identify text objects (such as warnings and error messages) in log files, to render the text objects in a display according to a registered style, and to define responses triggered by user interface interaction with the text objects. Embodiments may read portions of the log files and use plug-ins to identify, render, and respond as configured, according to the text objects found. Callback actions may provide a user more detailed information corresponding to the text object, such as a tool tip or contextual data, and may highlight and select a corresponding design object in a schematic displayed by an integrated electronic design automation application. An arbitration process may select the best callback action for a given log file.

  • Patent number: 10423699
    Abstract: Functionality is disclosed for providing and displaying an indication as to a position within a message that is currently being displayed within a message conversation that includes multiple messages. A personal information management (PIM) client application or another type of messaging application receives the messages in the conversation. The conversation is parsed, by either the PIM client application or a PIM server application that forwarded the messages in the conversation to the PIM client application, in order to determine sizes and beginnings of the multiple messages. As a message is displayed within the conversation, a message position indicator is displayed that indicates the position within the message relative to the size of the message. The position represents the portion of the message that is currently being displayed. The message position indicator resets when the beginning of a new message is displayed.

    Abstract: An information processing apparatus that is capable of finding out a desired content in a short time. A display control unit scrolls and displays at least parts of respective contents on a screen by moving the contents in a predetermined direction. A storing unit stores a start-time content displayed at a time of starting to scroll and display the contents in the predetermined direction among the contents. The display control unit makes a displaying part of the start-time content become larger than a displaying part of the other contents when the start-time content is displayed again because a moving direction of the contents is reversed.
