  • Patent number: 10691286
    Abstract: Dynamic window and cursor shadows are described. In some implementations, graphical user interface display objects can be configured with elevation offset information to give the display objects a three-dimensional surface that can have pixels of varying height. In some implementations, shadows that are rendered upon display objects configured with pixel elevation offset information can be adjusted to reflect the three-dimensional surface of the objects thereby better approximating real-life shadows. In some implementations, shadows can be dynamically rendered in real-time and adjusted according to the elevations of display objects onto which they are cast.

  • Patent number: 10674222
    Abstract: In various embodiments, a subtitle application generates a subtitle list for a trailer. In operation, the subtitle application performs matching operation(s) between trailer audio associated with a trailer and source audio associated with an audiovisual program. The subtitle application then maps a subtitle associated with the source audio from a source timeline associated with the source audio to a trailer timeline associated with the trailer audio to generate a mapped subtitle. Subsequently, the subtitle application generates a trailer subtitle list based on the mapped subtitle and at least one additional mapped subtitle. Because the subtitle application generates the trailer subtitle list based on audio comparisons, the subtitle application ensures that the proper subtitles are included in the trailer subtitle list without requiring a subtitler to view the trailer.

  • Patent number: 10664776
    Abstract: This specification describes methods, systems, and computer readable media for representing progresses of multiple projects in an integrated progress view. In an integrated progress view, visual indicators can represent a respective degree of completion of each project, as well as additional information on the project. The additional information indicates velocity of the progresses and resources used to achieve the velocity. Measurements of completion, including milestones achieved in and resources consumed by each project, are individually configurable in a distributed manner. For example, a user interface can allow a first project manager to configure how to measure progress of a first project, and a second project manager to configure how to measure progress of a second project. The integrated progress view can provide a summary view of progresses of the projects, even when measurements of the progresses are configured differently.

  • Patent number: 10657686
    Abstract: A graph processing system, method and apparatus classifies graphs based on a linearly computable set of features defined as a feature vector adapted for comparison with the feature vectors of other graphs. The features result from graph statistics (“gragnostics”) computable from the edges and vertices of a set of graphs. Graphs are classified based on a multidimensional distance of the resulting feature vectors, and similar graphs are classified according to a distance, or nearest neighbor, of the feature vector corresponding to each graph. Projection of the feature vector onto two dimensions allows visualization of the classification, as similar graphs appear as clusters or groups separated by a relatively shorter distance. Different types or classifications of graphs also appear as other, more distant, clusters. An initial training set defines the classification types, and sampled graphs are evaluated and classified based on the feature vector and nearest neighbors in the training set.

  • Patent number: 10546053
    Abstract: A technique for inserting form fields into forms displays a cursor superimposed over a background image of a form and dynamically generates candidate shapes of a form field to be inserted. New candidate shapes are generated automatically, based on pixel content of the form under a cursor, as a user moves the cursor over different regions of the form. In response to the user manually selecting one of the candidate shapes, the technique establishes the position, size, and shape of the form field based on the position, size, and shape of the selected candidate shape. The improved technique thus proceeds semi-automatically, generating candidate shapes automatically but based on manual, user-directed cursor positioning and manual selections.

Issues with retrieving values that a caller function has stored in non-volatile registers before calling a callee function are addressed at the instruction code level by through emulation. The epilog of the callee function may be emulated after copying a computing environment of the target program code from a target system to an emulation system. When the debugged code does not include an epilog, values that a caller function stored before calling a callee function in non-volatile registers may be retrieved by emulating the calling function forward from the breakpoint.

  • Patent number: 10430514
    Abstract: A method, a terminal and a non-transitory storage medium for extracting webpage content includes: responding to a webpage browsing instruction triggered on a browser by a mobile client to obtain a corresponding webpage; parsing the webpage to obtain a DOM node of a tag in a webpage script; obtaining a plug-in tag node from the DOM node; and when a plug-in tag corresponding to the plug-in tag node is a predetermined type tag, extracting a plug-in resource that corresponds to the plug-in tag. The present method can complete extracting of content that complies with a specific protocol specification when a webpage has not been truly rendered, thereby improving a speed of extracting predetermined webpage content and also improving a webpage display speed.

  • Patent number: 10382563
    Abstract: A method, computer program product, and a device for establishing a direct communications connection between gateways of two computing systems includes a processor(s) of a first system receiving configuration instructions in a generic format and translating the configuration instructions into a first set of gateway configuration commands that are in a format compatible with a first gateway of the first system. The processor(s) executes the first set to configure the first gateway. The processor(s) transmits, via a communication protocol, the configuration instructions, to a program(s) of a second computing systems, the program(s) translates the configuration instructions into a second set of gateway configuration commands, in a format compatible with the second gateway, and executes the second set to configure the second gateway. The processor(s) establishes a direct communications connection between the first gateway and the second gateway, based on the configurations matching.
