  • Patent number: 10642479
    Abstract: Video content may be presented on a touchscreen display. A viewing window for the video content may define an extent of the video content presented on the touchscreen display. Reception of an automatic movement input by the touchscreen display during the presentation of the video content may be determined. The automatic movement input may include user engagement with the touchscreen display that moves along the touchscreen display to an edge of the touchscreen display during an input period. The movement along the touchscreen display may cause a movement of the viewing window during the input period. Based on the automatic movement input, the movement of the viewing window may be continued after the input period. The movement of the viewing window after the input period may be continuous with the movement of the viewing window during the input period.

  • Patent number: 10642473
    Abstract: An online system or an application of the online system generates and provides user interfaces that include user interface elements configured to allow users to browse newsfeed stories. For example, users can browse newsfeed stories via scrolling actions. The user interface elements are further configured to control presentation of individual stories that include series of images. The user's scrolling action causes the images to be presented sequentially. The online system selects a particular image and configures a speed of presenting the images according to the user action. The online system further generates and provides user interfaces that present still images in a parallax effect by adjusting viewpoints of observing the still images. The viewpoints can be adjusted according to the user action. The online system further configures the user interfaces to present related stories in adjacent positions and to present 360-degree videos as well as panorama images.

  • Patent number: 10635286
    Abstract: A visualization displays a portion of a big data set in a control in a browser-based GUI. The browser may support HTML and the control may include a DOM element. The control includes a canvas for rendering the big data portion. To create the visualization, the smaller of the browser's maximum canvas size and the big data set's candidate canvas size is determined. The canvas is sized accordingly. A page in the canvas is filled with initial data and the visualization is displayed with a scrollbar. Upon receiving a user input, it is determined if the user input denotes a short or long scroll. It is also determined if the scroll reaches an end of the scrollbar. Data is fetched from a relative location in the big data set in proportion with the relative scroll position, and respecting the data set and canvas limits.

While a grounding plane of the capacitive proximity sensor is decoupled from a grounding plane of the RF antenna, the playback device determines that the playback device will be rendering audio, and responsively causes the grounding plane of the capacitive proximity sensor to be coupled to the grounding plane of the RF antenna while the playback device is rendering audio.

  • Patent number: 10055507
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a computing device may receive a structured document that includes a list of markers and place-marker elements corresponding to data objects of the structured document. Each marker in the list of markers corresponds to a subset of the place-marker elements. Without loading all the data objects, the device may determine a size of a scroll bar for a GUI based on size information associated with the place-marker elements. In response to detecting a scroll or resize event, an event handler may identify at least one marker in the list of markers whose corresponding subset of place-maker elements is within a portion of the structured document that is viewable through the graphical user interface. The handler may load the data objects corresponding to the subset of the place-marker elements corresponding to the identified marker. The identified marker may then be removed from the list of markers.

  • Patent number: 10048756
    Abstract: Provided are a mobile terminal and a method of controlling the mobile terminal in which various operations performed by the mobile terminal can be controlled based on a vibration-indicator image representing the intensity, pattern and frequency of vibration generated by the mobile terminal. Therefore, it is possible for a user to identify the vibration generated by the mobile terminal not only with his or her sense of touch but also with his or her sense of touch. In addition, it is possible to display a vibration-indicator image representing vibration generated upon the detection of an entity near and approaching the mobile terminal and change the vibration-indicator image according to the distance between the entity and the mobile terminal. Thus, it is possible to easily determine the state of the entity.

  • Patent number: 10043200
    Abstract: A system and process provides consumers with product or services virtual recommendations from a list of contacts. In response to the consumer searching for or browsing a product or service, the system searches through stored contacts that have also interacted with the searched/browsed product or service. A virtual recommendation may be provided to the consumer based on the contacts' interaction with the product or service. In some embodiments, the virtual recommendation is displayed as a list of the contacts that had a previous consumer interaction with the product or service.

  • Patent number: 10042537
    Abstract: Video frame loupes are presented that provide a frame-by-frame video navigation tool. A video frame loupe is a graphical user interface (UI) element that may be displayed over a portion of a display screen, and which may be used by a user to navigate frames of a video clip. For example, a user may provider a user input to activate the video frame loupe to be displayed as a preview window that presents a continuum of frames available at the time corresponding to a point at which the video frame loupe UI was invoked. The user may then navigate forward/backward with frame-level accuracy.

  • Patent number: 10042829
    Abstract: Systems and methods of measuring the visibility of overlay content in a display of a computing device are provided. A page renderer can identify a position of a video block with respect to a web page rendered on the client device, identify a portion of the web page visible in a viewport of the client device, identify a portion of the video block visible in the viewport, and pass data identifying the portion of the video block visible in the viewport to an element renderer. The element renderer can receive the data, identify a position of overlay content with respect to the video block, compare the position of the overlay content to the portion of the video block visible in the viewport to determine visibility of the overlay content in the viewport, determine whether the visibility meets a visibility threshold, and provide visibility data to a records server.

  • Patent number: 9990264
    Abstract: A Graphic Performance Index (GPI) for increasing performance of graphics in a process control system graphical user interface (GUI). A GUI is built from GUI elements for use on a device. Determining an element load time for each GUI element based a hardware profile of the device permits calculating a total load time of all the element load times of the GUI elements. And the load time is mapped to a GPI scale. Based on the GPI, the GUI elements of the GUI are altered to improve the performance of the GUI.

  • Patent number: 9830066
    Abstract: A method for controlling display of graphical information in a display window is presented. A scroll region, i.e. a scroll bar, is provided with a “memory” that indicates to the user where to return after scrolling away from a current position within, e.g., a large document. This is advantageous in that it relieves the user from having to be very attentive to the scrolling content of the window, which means that the scrolling can be performed more quickly when compared to prior art solutions.
