  • Patent number: 11347463
    Abstract: A system and method of operating a correlative display system for a plurality of display systems on an aircraft includes receiving, by a processor, an identification of a feature from a user interface associated with a first display system of the plurality of display systems. The processor determines a location of the identified feature relative to data displayed on each other display system of the plurality of display systems, wherein the identified feature is not previously displayed on at least one of the other display systems of the plurality of display systems. The processor generates instructions to highlight the identified feature on each other display system of the plurality of display systems at the determine location relative to data displayed on each other display system.

  • Patent number: 11315529
    Abstract: A technology enables interactive control of simultaneously displayed multiple images with high dynamic ranges, which software automation processes are programmed to reduce the complexity in managing and viewing the post window/level adjustment of the multiple images. An image control engine provides several synchronous functional capabilities, which comprises an input module, a blending factor synchronization module, a window/level synchronization module, a display module, and an image storage. For window/level adjustment of the images in blended views, the blending factor synchronization module automatically links the activation of a window/level control of one image with a transparency blending factor that affects both images.

    Abstract: An IHS (Information Handling Systems) supports pointing devices such as a mouse. To use a pointing device, a user must identify the displayed location of the cursor. Depending on factors such as the resolution and size of a display, a user may have difficulty in immediately locating a cursor. Embodiments support various cursor activation modes that allow a user to quickly locate the cursor. A cursor activation mode is initiated by an entry condition and is associated with a modified cursor appearance. Upon detecting an entry condition, the cursor appearance is modified. Upon detecting the exit condition, the appearance of the cursor is restored. The appearance of the cursor may be modified by changing the size and/or color of the cursor. The cursor may be positioned at a default screen location or a screen location corresponding to a direction of the user's gaze.

  • Patent number: 10620814
    Abstract: Techniques relating to scrolling, object selection, and object moving are discussed. Strokes are inputted by a user, for instance using a touch sensitive surface. Strokes are directed to a scrollable surface with objects therein. Strokes that end before meeting a condition select the objects, and strokes then end after meeting the condition move the objects or representations thereof. The condition may be a distance. Selection may only occur when strokes meet a threshold condition such as having a particular direction (e.g., perpendicular to a direction for scrolling the surface) or moving a minimal distance. Strokes in a scrolling direction (e.g., horizontal) may scroll the surface in that direction and strokes in another direction (e.g., vertical) may both select and move the objects. Objects selected may slide on rails before moving.

  • Patent number: 10416847
    Abstract: Example embodiments of a system and method for asynchronous data item loading for a dropdown list of a user interface are described. In an example embodiment, a user input directed to a dropdown list control to cause presentation of at least one of the data items of the dropdown list is received. In response to the user input, a determination is made as to whether the data items are available for presentation. If not, the user input is queued in an event queue, the data items are requested from another computing system via a communication network, and a busy indicator is presented on the user interface in conjunction with the dropdown list control to indicate that the data items are not available for presentation. In response to receiving the data items, the busy indicator is removed, and the user input queued in the event queue is processed.
