  • Patent number: 10739982
    Abstract: Implementations provide an improved drag-and-drop operation on a mobile device. For example, a method includes identifying a drag area in a user interface of a first mobile application in response to a drag command and receiving a drop location in a second mobile application that differs from the first mobile application. The method may also include determining that a drop location is a text input control and the drag area is not text-based, performing a search for a text description of the drag area, and pasting the text description into the text input control. The method may also include determining that a drop location is an image input control and that the drag area is text based, performing a search using the drag area for a responsive image, and pasting the responsive image into the image input control.

    Abstract: A common action flow for an application is identified by processing session data maintained for a plurality of users to identify a plurality of action flows. Each action flow represents a series of actions taken by one of the users navigating the application's user interface during a session. A data structure is generated from the plurality of action flows. That data structure is indicative of a plurality of candidate sub-flows. The data structure is analyzed to identify a selected one of the candidate sub-flows repeated in multiple ones of the plurality of action flows. That identified sub-flow is the common action flow. Data representative of the identified common action flow can then be communicated.

  • Patent number: 10732999
    Abstract: A method provides graphical control using virtualization for remote control of industrial automated machines. A guest agent application running on the same virtual machine is introduced as a legacy tool application i.e. source application. Instead of displaying the graphical user interface of the source application in an embedded window, the interface is managed by the guest agent application. The virtual machine, on which both the guest agent application and the tool application run, is in turn managed by a Hypervisor. A new application i.e. a destination application is connected to the guest agent application and the Hypervisor through both of which the interaction of the destination application with the tool is mediated.

    Abstract: A mixed mode programming method permitting users to program with graphical coding blocks and textual code within the same programming tool. The mixed mode preserves the advantages of graphical block programming while introducing textual coding as needed for instructional reasons and/or for functional reasons. Converting a graphical code block or group of blocks to a textual block lets the user see a portion of the textual code in the context of a larger program. Within one programming tool the mixed mode method allows users to learn programming and build purely graphical blocks; then transition into mixed graphical and textual code and ultimately lead to their ability to program in purely textual code. The mixed mode further allows users to program using any combination of drag-and-drop graphical blocks and typed textual code in various forms.

  • Patent number: 10592089
    Abstract: A method and system for capturing, sharing, viewing, and/or displaying one or more video videos. A user of a computing device performs a gesture involving contacting a touch sensitive display. In response, a video segment is captured while the user maintains contact with the touch sensitive display. Upon releasing contact with the touch sensitive display, recording of the video segment is ceased. In one or more embodiments of the invention, the user may then record one or more additional video segments to be included in a video vignette.

  • Patent number: 10585936
    Abstract: Textual content is analyzed to determine a tone of the content. A first color palette including a first plurality of colors is computed. The first plurality of colors corresponds to the tone. A first color of the first plurality of colors is selected, and a second color palette including a second plurality of colors is computed. The second plurality of colors corresponds to the first plurality of colors and satisfies a predetermined color-related accessibility requirement between the first selected color and each of the second plurality of colors. A second color of the second plurality of colors is selected, and the content is modified using the first selected color and the second selected color.

  • Patent number: 10554687
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and software described herein provide for managing service level agreements (SLAs) for security incidents in a computing environment. In one example, an advisement system identifies a rule set for a security incident based on enrichment information obtained for the security incident, wherein the rule set is associated with action recommendations to be taken against the incident. The advisement system further identifies a default SLA for the security incident based on the rule set, and obtains environmental characteristics related to the security incident. Based on the environmental characteristics, the advisement system determines a modified SLA for the security incident.

  • Patent number: 10540061
    Abstract: Computer-implemented systems and methods are disclosed for automatically generating and displaying a chronology of events, where events may be represented by data objects in one or more databases. Events/data objects may be identified as relevant to an investigation or analysis based on specified criteria. A timeline may be generated based on the identified set of relevant events, and interactive user interfaces may be generated and displayed that present the events as a timeline and a list. Events may be selected from the timeline or the list, may be identified as key events in the chronology, and additional events related to a selected event may be determined and added to the chronology. Timelines may be compared to other data sets, including other timelines, other event lists, and other relevant data.

  • Patent number: 10521494
    Abstract: Content can be displayed in different manners on different devices (e.g., having different display sizes) using different layout templates. The techniques discussed herein automatically select a layout template for the content for a particular display device, and transform the content to that layout template for display. Generally, the content is categorized into multiple different categories, and the layout template is also categorized into the same categories. For each of the categories, a mapping of part of the content to a layout element of the layout template is selected. A content display for the layout template is generated by porting (and possibly transforming) the parts of the content into the mapped-to element (as indicated by the selected edges) of the layout. In one or more embodiments, the content display can then be displayed or communicated to another device for display.

  • Patent number: 10509558
    Abstract: In accordance with an embodiment, described herein is a system and method for enabling advertisement interaction with an electronic device, for use in a digital media content environment. A media device includes a touch-sensitive display screen, and user interface that enables access to a stored media application. During the streaming of media content from a media server, an audio advertisement or other type of advertisement can be inserted into a stream, for playback at the media device. Using playback controls provided either by the user interface, or by a headphones, headset, or other type of device, a user can interact with the advertisement (even if the user interface is locked), by performing a defined gesture, which, if received at the media application during a defined time period associated with the advertisement, is interpreted as a signal to select or otherwise interact with the advertisement.
