Description

用于配置改进的手写输入界面的方法和装置技术领域本发明总的来说涉及手写输入界面的配置,更具体地说,本发明一种用于配置改进的手写输入界面的方法和装置。 BACKGROUND method and apparatus for configuring an improved handwriting input interface according to the present invention generally relates to the configuration of the handwriting input interface, and more particularly, to a method and apparatus of the present invention is an improved configuration for a handwriting input interface. 背景技术随着数字信号处理技术以及通信技术的发展,以移动终端为代表的便携式装置越来越普及。 BACKGROUND With the development of digital signal processing technology and communication technology, portable devices represented in the mobile terminal is becoming increasingly popular. 为了方便用户的使用,很多装置采用了手写输入的方式。 For the convenience of users, many devices using a handwriting input. 手写输入方式使得产品的设计更加人性化,但同时受到输入界面大小等各方面的限制,存在一些不便之处。 Handwriting a way that the product design more user-friendly, but is limited by various aspects of the size of the input interface, there are some inconveniences. 图1是示出传统的手写输入界面的示图。 FIG 1 is a diagram illustrating a conventional handwriting input interface. 如图l所示,传统的手写输入界面主要分为两个区域,即,输入法窗口101以及输入结果显示区107。 As shown in FIG. L, conventional handwriting input interface is divided into two regions, i.e., input window 101 and an input result display area 107. 输入结果显示区107通常位于输入法窗口101之上,其显示用户的输入结果。 Input result display area 107 is usually located above the input window 101, which displays the input result of the user. 输入法窗口101中设置有与输入法有关的各个区,包括:输入方式选择区102、 候选区103、联想区104、手写输入区105和功能键区106。 Input window 101 is provided in each region associated with input method, comprising: an input mode selection area 102, the candidate region 103, the association region 104, the handwriting input area 105 and a function key area 106. 由于输入法窗口101的大小有限,所以各个区的大小也受到限制,以致无法实现完备的输入功能。 Because of the limited size of the input window 101, the size of each area is also limited, making it impossible to achieve a complete input function. 例如,输入方式选择区102中只能显示某些输入方式,而无法提供所有输入方式。 For example, the input mode selection area 102 can only display certain input mode, and can not provide all the input. 这样,用户要么只能在较少的选项中进行选择,要么需要通过复杂的操作来进行选择,这两种情况均不理想。 In this way, the user can only be carried out in either fewer options to select either need to be selected by a complex operation, both of which are not ideal. 此外,候选区103用于根据手写输入区105的输入,向用户显示作为候选输入结果的一组候选字;联想区104用于根据手写输入区105的输入,向用户显示与候选字相关的一组联想字。 In addition, the candidate region 103 based on the input handwriting input area 105, a set of candidate words displayed as candidate input results to the user; association region 104 based on the input handwriting input area 105 displays a candidate word associated with the user Lenovo group word. 如图1所示,候选区103和联想区104 的外观相近,使得用户难以区分。 As shown in FIG. 1, the appearance of the candidate region 103 and a region 104 close association, so that the user is difficult to distinguish. 并且,候选区103和联想区104中的字符均固定地按照从左到右、从上到下的顺序显示,并不考虑候选区103和联想区104分别与手写输入区105的相互位置关系。 Further, the character candidate regions 104 and 103 are fixedly association regions from left to right, top to bottom of the display, is not considered a candidate region 103 and a region 104 association with the mutual positional relationship of the handwriting input area 105, respectively. 在这种情况下,由于汉字的落笔处通常在右下角,所以当用户手写完毕时,其往往需要将触摸笔移到候选区或联想区的左上方来进行选择,这样的移动距离相对较远,给用户带来不便。 In this case, since the pen down in the lower right corner is usually Chinese characters, when the user's handwriting is completed, it is often necessary to move the touch pen or upper left region candidate region association be selected, so the moving distance is relatively far , inconvenience to the user. 功能键区106中设置有固定的几个执行特定功能的功能键,由于功能键区106的大小受限,所以不能在功能键区中提供全部功能键,以致在特定应用中,需要常用的功能键没有设置在功能键区106中,而功能键区106中设置的键在该应用中又不会用到,这给用户的操作带来^[艮大不变。 Function key area 106 is provided with a number of fixed function keys for performing specific functions, since the size of the restricted function key area 106, it can not provide all the function keys in the function key area, so that in certain applications, commonly used functions required key is not set in the function key area 106, while the key function key area 106 set in and will not be used in this application, which gives the user an operation to bring ^ [Gen large unchanged. 通过以上描述可知,由于手写输入界面的大小受到限制,所以与输入法相关的各个区的功能被尽量筒化而变得单一,因此需要一种配置改进的手写输入界面的方法和装置,以提供具有更加强大的输入功能并且更加清晰的用户输入界面,方便用户使用。 By the above description that, since the size of the handwriting input interface is limited, the function associated with each input region of the cartridge is possible it becomes single, and therefore a need for an improved method and apparatus for handwriting input interface configured to provide has a more powerful input function and clearer user input interface, user-friendly. 发明内容本发明的目的在于提供一种用于配置改进的手写输入界面的方法和装置。 Object of the present
