  • Patent number: 10762279
    Abstract: A method of augmenting presentation of text in a document includes obtaining a DOM tree associated with a markup of the document, searching a plurality of nodes of the DOM tree for a target text string such that a child node is searched after searching a corresponding parent node. A target text node of the DOM tree is identified, the target text node including an entirety of the target text string and having no child nodes including the entirety of the target text string. Responsive to identifying the target text node, the markup is modified in one of: the target text node and a child node of the target text node including a portion of the target text string. The markup is modified to augment presentation of the target text string in the document. A system for augmenting presentation of text in a document is also disclosed.

  • Patent number: 10565293
    Abstract: Techniques for synchronizing document object model (DOM) references between a host process and an edit process are described. In one or more implementations a page editor application is invoked to edit a mark-up language document. The page editor application may provide an editing user interface that provides access to both a DOM structure view and a “live” rendered view of the mark-up language document (e.g., a design view). In response to edits made to the mark-up language document via the user interface, elements affected by the edits are identified and temporary identifiers are assigned to the affected elements. The temporary identifiers are included when the edits are communicated to update the underlying DOM. The page editor application may employ the temporary identifiers to create new DOM identifiers for elements in relation to the DOM structure view and synchronize the identifiers between the DOM structure view and the rendered view.

  • Patent number: 10169300
    Abstract: Techniques disclosed herein decouple a document's structure from its general content wherein the structure is retained in plaintext (both at a client device and in a server system) and the data is retained in cyphertext, and where the cloud-based server system is not tasked with the saving or management of the relevant cryptographic keys. Because the network- or cloud-based server system has “zero-knowledge” about the document's data content or the relevant cryptographic keys, an attack on the server system does not put the security of the document's data at risk. In addition, the network- or cloud-based server system may be used to perform the computationally intensive tasks of converting the document between a first format (often associated with a full-function document processing application not supported by the client device) and a second format (easily displayed and manipulated by a client device).

    Abstract: A user interface for dynamically validating at least a portion of programming codes as an application program interface (API) modification request. A first window area statically displays data definitions for one or more configurable elements for a request to be operably connected to an API. A second window area displays programming codes structured according to the data definitions for the request. The second window area also receives a first input from a user to modify the configurable elements. In response to receiving the first input, a dynamic request display area receives an instruction from the user to submit the programming codes to the API for validation. The submitted programming codes are not complete as a complete transaction request for processing by the API. The dynamic request display area displays a response substantially immediate after the programming codes are submitted, and response indicates whether the submitted programming codes are valid.

The method includes the steps of receiving control information on how to preselect audio streams from received audio streams, receiving audio streams from audio clients connected to the distributed multipoint audio processing node and generating evaluated audio streams by analyzing packets of the received audio streams in terms of at least one audio communication characteristic, and attaching an analysis result information of said analysis to said packets, in each audio stream. Audio streams are selected by deciding on whether or not any evaluated audio stream is to be transmitted further, based on the received control information and/or the analysis result information contained in said evaluated audio streams.

  • Patent number: 9959331
    Abstract: The present invention provides a method of transferring content from a file and a database. In this case, the file includes content instances, each content instance being associated with a respective field, and each field having a respective type. The transfer is achieved by determining the type of each field, and then storing each content instance in a store in accordance with the determined field type of the associated field. Each content instance can then be transferred to the database in accordance with the determined field type. A similar procedure is provided for creating XML files based on content within the database.

  • Patent number: 9904521
    Abstract: Computer program products, methods, systems, apparatuses, and computing entities are provided for enforcing usage of a canonical model. For example, machine-automatable artifacts that express the canonical model using a set of metadata constraints and a set of transformation rules can be received from a canonical model artifact repository. These machine-automatable artifacts can be converted into language-specific bindings and applications can subsequently utilize those language-specific bindings to enforce conformity to the canonical model.

  • Patent number: 9841874
    Abstract: Expandable application representation techniques are described. The techniques may include support of an expandable tile that may function as an intermediary within a root level (e.g., start menu or screen) of a file system. The expandable tile, for instance, may be output via a gesture to gain additional information that was not included in an unexpanded version of the tile, may be utilized to provide inputs to an application such that a user, and so on. Thus, this may support non-modal interaction by a user. Techniques are also described in which the expanded representation is included in a taskbar, which may also be used for non-modal interaction, sending of content represented in the representation to a device or application, continuation of interaction initiated with the representation by a mobile computing device, and so on. Expandable tile techniques may also be utilized to support interaction between shells of an operating system, such as a desktop and immersive shell.
