Description

Electronic equipment icon display method and device
Technical Field
The invention relates to the field of communication equipment, in particular to a display method of an electronic equipment icon and a display device for realizing the display method.
Background
In recent years, with the wide acceptance of electronic devices such as smart phones and tablet computers in the market, the electronic devices gradually become essential tools for people to communicate, entertain and learn. Because people need to install a large number of application programs in daily use of smart phones, tablet computers and the like, icons of the application programs need to be displayed on the desktop of the electronic equipment. Due to the limited display area of the electronic device, the number of icons of the application programs that can be displayed on each screen is limited, and therefore, a large number of icons of the application programs are often required to be displayed through multiple screens. However, as the number of applications installed in the electronic device increases, icons of the applications are displayed on multiple screens, which is not beneficial for a user to find a certain application, and brings trouble to the user.
Therefore, some existing electronic devices start to use a stereoscopic icon, that is, an icon with a stereoscopic effect is displayed on a desktop, the stereoscopic icon has multiple surfaces, and an icon of an application program is displayed on each surface. For example, if 15 stereo icons are displayed on the desktop and each stereo icon has 6 surfaces, a total of 90 application icons can be displayed.
Therefore, when the user uses the electronic equipment, the user only needs to send an instruction for controlling the rotation of the three-dimensional icon on the desktop interface, for example, the user slides on the screen to drive the three-dimensional icon to rotate, and the user can view the icon of the application program on the other surface of the three-dimensional icon. When a user clicks a certain three-dimensional icon, the electronic device can open an application program corresponding to the icon displayed on the current surface of the clicked three-dimensional icon.
However, since the number of surfaces of the stereoscopic icon is fixed in the related art, when the electronic device has fewer applications installed, a large number of surfaces of the stereoscopic icon do not display icons of any applications, resulting in a phenomenon that a large number of blank surfaces of the stereoscopic icon appear. If the electronic device has more applications installed, the stereoscopic icon may not be displayed on the surface enough to display all the application icons, or one more display page may be added to display the stereoscopic icon, which may cause inconvenience to the user.
In addition, with the increase of the screen size of the smart phone, the problem of using the smart phone is more and more prominent, for example, the current smart phone is difficult to operate with one hand on the whole screen of the smart phone due to the overlarge size, and with the continuous popularization and the continuous increase of the size of the smart phone, the operation with one hand becomes more and more difficult, and especially when the size of the touch display screen of the smart phone is more than 5 inches, the operation with one hand is difficult.
Disclosure of Invention
The first objective of the present invention is to provide an icon displaying method for an electronic device, which is convenient for a user to quickly find an application icon.
It is a second object of the present invention to provide an electronic equipment icon display apparatus which is advantageous in reducing user operations.

According to the scheme, when the number of the application programs installed on the electronic equipment is small, the number of the surfaces of the three-dimensional icons can be small, such as two or three, after the number of the application programs installed on the electronic equipment is increased, the shapes of the three-dimensional icons can be automatically adjusted, so that the number of the surfaces of each three-dimensional icon is increased, the icons of the newly-increased application programs can be displayed on the surfaces of the newly-increased three-dimensional icons, a display page does not need to be additionally arranged to display the new three-dimensional icons, the display of the application program icons is facilitated, and the icon searching method is also beneficial for a user to quickly search the icons of the application programs.
One preferable scheme is that the number of the three-dimensional icons is more than two; after the instruction for adding the application program icons is obtained, the shapes of the three-dimensional icons are adjusted simultaneously, and the newly added application program icon is displayed on the newly added surface of one of the three-dimensional icons.
Therefore, when the shapes of the three-dimensional icons are adjusted, the shapes of the three-dimensional icons are adjusted simultaneously, so that the shapes of the three-dimensional icons displayed on the desktop are the same, a user can synchronously drive the three-dimensional icons to rotate conveniently, and the problem that the three-dimensional icons cannot rotate synchronously due to the fact that the shapes of the three-dimensional icons are different is avoided.
One optional scheme is that the electronic equipment is also provided with a touch part; and when the icon of the application program is displayed, acquiring a sliding signal on the touch control part, and controlling the rotation of the three-dimensional icon according to the sliding signal on the touch control part.
Therefore, the electronic equipment can be further provided with a touch part such as a touch pad or a second display screen, the touch part can be arranged on the back of the electronic equipment, the sliding signal formed on the touch part can drive the three-dimensional icon to rotate, and a user can conveniently view icons of different application programs.
Further, when the stereoscopic icon is displayed, an upward sliding signal formed on the display screen or the touch part is acquired, and an interface of the first application program is displayed on the display screen; and when the stereo is displayed, acquiring a downward sliding signal formed on the display screen or the touch part, and displaying an interface of the second application program on the display screen.
Therefore, a user can enter the interface of the first application program or the interface of the second application program through simple operation, so that the user can quickly open the preset application program, namely, enter a quick opening mode in which the first application program and the second application program are set, and the user can conveniently open the preset application program.
A further scheme is that an instruction for scrolling the display icon is obtained, and the icon is displayed in a scrolling manner; displaying a selection frame, acquiring the icon displayed in the selection frame, and sending out prompt information, wherein the prompt information is prompt information for prompting the icon displayed in the selection frame. In this way, the user can be facilitated to recognize the currently selected icon.
In order to achieve the second objective, the present invention provides an icon display apparatus for an electronic device, including a stereoscopic icon display module, configured to display at least one stereoscopic icon, where the stereoscopic icon has at least two surfaces, each surface displays an application icon, and each application icon corresponds to an application; the system also comprises an instruction acquisition module used for acquiring an instruction for adding the application program icon; and the icon adding module is used for adjusting the shape of the three-dimensional icon, increasing one surface of the three-dimensional icon, and displaying the newly added application icon on the newly added surface.
According to the scheme, when the number of the application programs installed on the electronic equipment is small, the number of the surfaces of the three-dimensional icons can be small, such as two or three, after the number of the application programs installed on the electronic equipment is increased, the shapes of the three-dimensional icons can be automatically adjusted, so that the number of the surfaces of each three-dimensional icon is increased, the icons of the newly increased application programs can be displayed on the surfaces of the newly increased three-dimensional icons, the new three-dimensional icons do not need to be increased, and the display of the application program icons is facilitated. When a user searches for the icon of the application program, only an instruction for driving the three-dimensional icon to rotate needs to be sent, and the operation is very convenient.

Detailed Description
The method for displaying the icons of the electronic equipment is applied to portable electronic equipment such as a smart phone, a tablet personal computer and the like, the electronic equipment is provided with at least one display screen, preferably, the electronic equipment is provided with two or even three display screens, and the display screens are touch display screens, namely, the display screens can display images and can also receive signals formed by clicking the display screens by a user, such as clicking signals or sliding signals. The present invention will be described in detail below with reference to a smartphone as an example.
As shown in fig. 1 and 2, the smart phone has a phone body 1, a touch display screen 2 is disposed on the front side of the smart phone, and another touch display screen 7 is disposed on the back side of the smart phone. In this embodiment, the front surface of the mobile phone is a first surface of the electronic device, the back surface of the mobile phone is a second surface, and the touch display screen 7 disposed on the back surface is a touch portion.
The mobile phone is roughly a cuboid, the mobile phone body 1 is provided with two opposite side walls 3 and 4 on the side surface, three key mounting grooves 5 are arranged on the side wall 3, and a key 6 is arranged in each key mounting groove 5. Two key installation grooves 5 are also arranged on the side wall 4, and a key 6 is also arranged in each key installation groove 5. In addition, a touch pad 9 is further disposed on the sidewall 4 of the mobile phone, the touch pad 9 is another touch portion, and a user can click and slide on the touch pad 9 to form a click and slide signal.
Certainly, the touch pad can be symmetrically arranged on the side wall 3, so that the touch pad and the keys on the side wall 3 are symmetrically arranged with the touch pad and the keys on the side wall 4, which is convenient for users with left-hand use habits and users with right-hand use habits.
Moreover, the keys 6 are concave keys, each key mounting groove 5 on the side wall 4 is concave from the surface of the side wall 4 to the mobile phone body 1, and the outer surface of the key 6 is lower than the surface of the side wall 4, that is, the key 6 is completely accommodated in the key mounting groove 5, and the key 6 is not exposed outside the surface of the side wall 4. Therefore, when people hold the mobile phone, fingers can touch the outer surface of the key 6, but the key 6 is not pressed, and the mobile phone can be held by the holding column. When people need to press the key 6, only the key 6 needs to be lightly pressed, and the use is very convenient.
The smart phone is a one-handed phone, for example, a user can put a thumb on the uppermost touchpad 9 on the right side, a forefinger on the touch display screen 7, and a middle finger, a ring finger, and a little finger on the three keys 6 from top to bottom on the left side. The user operates the three different keys 6, the touch display screen 7 and the touch pad 9 to realize the operation and control of the mobile phone, such as conversation, zooming of a page displayed on the touch display screen, and the like.
As shown in fig. 3, a touch display screen 7 is arranged on the back of the mobile phone, the area of the touch display screen 7 is smaller than that of the touch display screen 2, and a camera 8 is arranged on the mobile phone, and the camera 8 is located on the back of the mobile phone. The camera 8 is arranged at a position close to the upper end, and the touch display screen 7 is arranged at the middle part and is approximately positioned at the upper part of the key assembly.
Referring to fig. 4, the operation flow of the icon displaying method is described, first, step S1 is executed to display the interface of the desktop on the touch display screen 2, and display a plurality of stereoscopic icons on the desktop interface. In this embodiment, the touch display screen 2 disposed on the front side of the smart phone is used as the main display screen, that is, the user mainly views the content displayed on the smart phone through the touch display screen 2 disposed on the front side of the smart phone and performs the main operation on the smart phone. For example, as shown in fig. 5, the operation interface displayed on the touch display screen 2 is an interface 20 on a desktop of a smart phone, and a status bar 21, that is, an area for displaying a current mobile communication carrier, signal strength, and remaining battery power, is displayed at the upper end of the interface 20. Certainly, in order to enable the touch display screen 2 to display more contents, the status bar 21 may be hidden on the interface 20 of the desktop, that is, the status bar 21 is not displayed on the touch display screen 2 any more, so as to increase the display area of other contents that need to be displayed. Of course, if other interfaces are displayed on the touch display screen 2, the hidden status bar 21 may increase the display area of other display contents. Alternatively, the status bar 21 may be displayed on the interface of another application.
As can be seen from fig. 5, the plurality of stereoscopic icons are arranged in three rows and four columns, and each of the stereoscopic icons is shaped as a regular hexahedron, i.e., each face of the cube is square. For example, the stereoscopic icon 22 located at the upper left corner has six surfaces, and in the state shown in fig. 5, three surfaces of the stereoscopic icon 22 can be displayed, namely, a surface 23, a surface 24, and a surface 25, wherein the surface 23 is the main surface of the stereoscopic icon 22 currently displayed, that is, the surface 23 displays the largest area, and the complete information on the surface 23 can be seen. Surface 24 is adjacent to surface 23 and surface 24 is below surface 23, but the display area of surface 24 is smaller. Surface 25 is located to the right of surface 23 and adjacent to surface 23, and similarly, surface 24 has a smaller display area than surface 23.
On each surface of the stereoscopic icon 22 an icon of one application is displayed, for example on surface 23 an icon of application a, and likewise on surface 24 an icon of another application may be displayed and on surface 25 an icon of a third application may be displayed. Thus, the icons of one application program are respectively displayed on the six surfaces of one three-dimensional icon 22, that is, one three-dimensional icon 22 can display the icons of six application programs, and the area occupied by the display of the application program icons is greatly saved.
Similarly, another stereoscopic icon 30 is displayed on the right side of the stereoscopic icon 22, and the stereoscopic icon 30 is also a regular hexahedron, each surface displaying an icon of an application program, such as an icon of application program B on the main surface. By analogy, icons of one application program can be displayed on each surface of other three-dimensional icons. In this way, 12 stereoscopic icons are displayed on the desktop interface 20, and since each stereoscopic icon has six surfaces and each surface can display an icon of an application, a total of 72 icons of applications can be displayed on the desktop interface 20.
When a plurality of stereoscopic icons are displayed, icons of a plurality of applications may be displayed in a sorted or ordered manner, for example, icons of a plurality of applications of the same type are displayed on a plurality of surfaces of the same stereoscopic icon, such as icons of a plurality of browsers are displayed on a plurality of surfaces of one stereoscopic icon. Of course, an icon group having a plurality of application icons may be displayed in a folder manner, and one icon group may be displayed on one surface of one stereoscopic icon. Or, the icons of the plurality of application programs can be arranged according to the installation time, the number, the function, the initial sequence, the first Chinese character stroke of the Chinese name, the letter of the first Chinese character pinyin of the Chinese name and the like, or according to the special preference of a user, so that the user can quickly search the icon of one application program.
After the plurality of stereoscopic icons are displayed on the desktop interface 20, step S2 is executed to determine whether a signal for controlling the rotation of the stereoscopic icon is acquired. The signal for controlling the rotation of the stereoscopic icon may be a slide signal formed on the touch display screen 2, a slide signal formed on the touch display screen 7, or a slide signal formed on the touch pad 9.
For example, the user slides upwards on the touch display screen 7, that is, a signal of sliding upwards is formed on the touch display screen 7, at this time, if it is determined in step S2 that a signal for driving the stereoscopic icon to rotate is acquired, step S7 is executed, and the rotation of the stereoscopic icon is controlled according to the acquired sliding signal. For example, if the acquired signal is a signal that slides upward, the stereoscopic icon rotates upward. In this embodiment, after the signal for controlling the rotation of the stereoscopic icon is obtained, all the stereoscopic icons are rotated upward, and the rotation direction of the stereoscopic icon is shown by an arrow in fig. 6. For example, when the solid icon 22 is rotated, the main surface 23 is not visible in the state shown in fig. 6 because it is positioned on the top surface of the solid icon 22 by being rotated backward. Since the surface 24 originally located below the main surface 23 is rotated to become a new main surface, the main surface of the three-dimensional icon 22 is the surface 24 in the state shown in fig. 6. While the surface located to the right of surface 24 is still surface 25 and the surface located below surface 24 is surface 26.
Of course, in order to facilitate the control of the plurality of stereoscopic icons, when the user inputs a sliding signal on the touch display screen 7, the user will drive the plurality of stereoscopic icons to rotate simultaneously. For example, when the user forms a signal of sliding upward on the touch display screen 7, all the stereoscopic icons displayed on the desktop interface 20 are rotated upward as shown by the arrow direction of fig. 6, i.e., the stereoscopic icons 22, 30, etc. are rotated in synchronization. The user can slide upwards, downwards, leftwards and rightwards on the touch display screen 7, and the plurality of three-dimensional icons can rotate upwards, downwards, leftwards and rightwards along with the sliding signal output by the user.
When the user stops inputting the sliding signal, the rotation of the three-dimensional icon is stopped immediately, and the three-dimensional icon stays in a state that the user stops inputting the sliding signal. At this time, if the user clicks any one of the stereoscopic icons, for example, the user clicks the stereoscopic icon 22, the application program displayed on the current main surface of the stereoscopic icon 22 is opened. For example, an icon of the application C is displayed on the surface 24 of the stereoscopic icon 22, and in the state of fig. 6, the main surface of the stereoscopic icon 22 is the surface 24, and if the user clicks the stereoscopic icon 22, the application corresponding to the icon displayed on the surface 24 is opened.
If it is determined in step S2 that the signal for controlling the rotation of the stereoscopic icon is not acquired, step S3 is performed to determine whether the command for adding an application icon is acquired, if the command for adding an application icon is not acquired, step S6 is performed, and if the command for adding an application icon is acquired, step S4 is performed.
In step S3, the instruction to add the application icon may be manually issued by the user, or may be automatically issued by the electronic device according to the current operating condition. For example, if the user presses a specific key or sends a specific touch signal on the touch display screen 2 or the touch display screen 7, or sends a voice signal, and an icon of an application needs to be added, the user actively sends an instruction to add the icon of the application. If a user installs an application, after the application is installed, the electronic device adds an icon of the application on the desktop interface 20 according to the setting of the application, which is an instruction for adding an application icon sent by the electronic device according to the current running condition.
If an instruction for adding an application icon is obtained, for example, a new application is installed on the electronic device, and the application default to display the application icon on the desktop interface, the application icon needs to be displayed on the surface of a stereoscopic icon. If the surface of a certain current stereo icon is a blank surface, namely, the icon of any application program is not displayed, the blank surface of the stereo icon can be selected as the surface for displaying the icon of the newly added application program. If all the stereoscopic icons currently have an icon of an application displayed on each surface, step S4 is performed to adjust the shape of the stereoscopic icon.
Since each of the three-dimensional icons is a regular hexahedron in the state of fig. 5, that is, each of the three-dimensional icons has six surfaces, and each of the surfaces is a square. In step S4, the shape of the solid icon is adjusted by increasing the number of surfaces of the solid icon, for example, increasing the number of surfaces of the solid icon from six to seven, as shown in fig. 7, the solid icon 22 is changed from a regular hexahedron to a heptahedron, the main surface of which is changed from a square to a regular pentagon, and the side surfaces adjacent to the main surface 23 are increased from 4 to 5. As can be seen in fig. 7, the stereographic icon 22 adds a side surface 28, the side surface 28 being adjacent to the major surface 23 and located to the right of the major surface 23. Furthermore, side surface 28 is located between surface 24 and surface 25.
Preferably, in order to facilitate synchronous control of a plurality of stereoscopic icons, when the shapes of the stereoscopic icons are adjusted, the shapes of all the stereoscopic icons should be adjusted synchronously, that is, all the stereoscopic icons displayed on the desktop interface 20 are adjusted to be heptahedrons, for example, the stereoscopic icon 30 also becomes a heptahedron.
Then, step S5 is executed to display the icons of the newly added applications on the newly added surface of one of the stereoscopic icons. For example, the icon of the application that was just installed is displayed on the newly added surface 28 of the stereoscopic icon 22. Of course, since all the stereo icons are adjusted to be heptahedron in shape, the number of surfaces of a newly added stereo icon is 12, and the newly added surfaces of the other stereo icons do not display any stereo icon of an application program, that is, a blank surface, except for displaying the icon of the newly added application program on the newly added surface 28 of the stereo icon 22. When an icon of an application program is added next time, any blank surface can be selected from the blank surfaces, and the icon of the added application program is displayed on the blank surface of the selected stereo icon.
Finally, step S7 is executed to determine whether to end the control, if the control is left from the current interface, if the control is not ended, the process returns to step S2 to determine whether a signal for controlling the rotation of the stereoscopic icon is acquired.
Of course, if the stereoscopic icon is displayed on the desktop interface 20, the signal of the upward slide formed on the touch display screen 2 or the touch display screen 7 or the touch pad 9 is acquired, and the interface of the first application is displayed on the touch display screen 2. And, a signal of a downward slide formed on the touch display screen 2 or the touch display screen 7 or the touch pad 9 is acquired, and an interface of the second application is displayed on the touch display screen 2.
For example, if the user can control the rotation of the stereoscopic icon by a slide signal formed on the touch display 7, the first application or the second application can be accessed by forming an upward or downward slide signal on the touch pad 9. For example, if the first application is a clock program, an interface of the clock program is displayed on the touch display screen 2 if the user forms a signal to slide upward on the touch pad 9. At this time, if the user slides left or right on the touch pad 9, information of a notification bar or a status bar may be displayed, the notification bar may display new information currently received, and the status bar may display whether WIFI is currently connected or whether the status bar is currently in a flight mode or the like.
For another example, if the second application is a photo browser program, if the user forms a downward slide signal on the touch pad 9, a photo browsing interface is displayed on the touch display screen 2, and photos in the photo library are displayed on the touch display screen 2, and at this time, if the user forms a leftward or rightward slide signal on the touch pad 9, the photos in the photo library are selected according to the formed slide signal. Of course, virtual icons to the left or right can be displayed on the photo browsing interface, and the user can select the browsed photo by clicking the icons, and in addition, music can be played while browsing the photo, so that virtual keys for playing music can be displayed on the photo browsing interface, and the photo can be automatically played in a slide show manner, so that a virtual key for pausing or stopping playing can be displayed on the photo browsing interface.
The electronic device of the present invention may further have more display control manners, for example, when displaying a desktop interface, that is, displaying a plurality of stereoscopic icons, the user sends a signal of sliding upwards on the touch display screen 7, and displays an interface of the first application program on the touch display screen 2, at this time, if the user sends a signal of sliding in the opposite direction, that is, a signal of sliding downwards, the electronic device returns to displaying the desktop interface, that is, the interface of the stereoscopic icon is displayed. Correspondingly, if the user sends a downward sliding signal on the touch display screen 7 and displays the interface of the second application program on the touch display screen 2 when the stereoscopic icon is displayed, at this time, if the user sends a reverse sliding signal, that is, an upward sliding signal, the user returns to the display desktop interface, that is, the interface displaying the stereoscopic icon.
In addition, the stereoscopic icon may be a polyhedral cube having an upper surface and a lower surface, for example, the upper surface and the lower surface are both square, regular pentagon or regular hexagon, and have a plurality of sides, and the icons of the applications are displayed on the plurality of sides. In this case, when the user issues a command to slide up or down, the electronic device may enter the first application interface or the second application interface.
Another control manner is that all surfaces of the stereoscopic icon are used for displaying icons of the application programs, for example, when the stereoscopic icon is rotated upward so that the surface originally located on the upper surface is rotated to a position facing the touch display screen 2, that is, the display state shown in fig. 5 is rotated to the state shown in fig. 6, and at this time, if the user stops touching the touch display screen 7, the first application program interface is entered. If the surface originally located on the upper surface is not rotated to the position facing the touch display screen 2 after the stereoscopic icon is rotated upward, the stereoscopic icon is still displayed, and the icon displayed on the lower surface in the state where the rotation is stopped can be displayed. Correspondingly, when the surface originally located on the lower surface is rotated to the position opposite to the touch display screen 2 after the stereo icon is rotated downwards, if the user stops touching the touch display screen 7 at this time, the second application program interface is entered. If the surface originally located on the lower surface is not rotated to the position facing the touch display screen 2 after the stereoscopic icon is rotated downward, the stereoscopic icon is still displayed, and the icon displayed on the lower surface in the state where the rotation is stopped can be displayed.
Certainly, when the electronic device is operated, there may be more operation modes, and a plurality of virtual function keys, such as a main interface key, a function setting key, and a step-by-step return key, are displayed at the lowermost end of the touch display screen 2, and when a user clicks the lowermost end region of the touch display screen 2 or slides upward in the lowermost end region, these virtual function keys are displayed, and when the user clicks the lowermost end region of the touch display screen 2 or slides downward, the displayed virtual function keys are hidden. Alternatively, the functions of the several virtual function keys are implemented by a plurality of physical keys 6 provided on the side wall of the electronic device.
In addition, the operating system of the electronic device may be embedded with various functional service program instructions, such as social contact, food, ticketing, finance, and the like, so as to distinguish the functional service program that can be implemented by using the APP. When a certain interface or a certain file is displayed, a user can press a specific key 6, a dialog box can be displayed on the touch display screen 2, and a plurality of virtual keys of shortcut instructions, such as virtual keys for pasting and copying, or virtual keys for turning off and turning off the screen, are displayed in the dialog box.
In this embodiment, the icons of the applications may also have more display manners, as shown in fig. 8, if the user needs to display the icons of the multiple applications in a scrolling manner, for example, the icons of the multiple applications are displayed on the display screen, for example, the icons of the applications a are sequentially displayed from top to bottom from the icon of the application F, and when the user slides on the touch display screen 2 or the touch display screen 7 with a finger, for example, slides upwards or downwards, the icons of the multiple applications also correspondingly scroll upwards or downwards on the touch display screen 2. In order to facilitate the user to know the icon of a currently selected application, a selection frame 32 may be displayed on the touch display screen 2, and when the application is located in the selection frame 32, the electronic device automatically recognizes the name of the application and issues a prompt message, such as issuing a voice message, that is, broadcasting the name of the application through the voice message. Of course, the sent prompt message can also be a vibration signal.
Of course, the icon display mode shown in fig. 8 is not limited to the display of the application icon, and when other icons, such as a plurality of function icons under a certain application program, or a music playing application program displays names of a plurality of candidate songs, the mode shown in fig. 8 may also be adopted, in which one selection frame 32 is displayed on the touch display screen 2, and when a certain icon is displayed in the selection frame 32, a prompt message is sent.
The electronic device icon display apparatus will be described with reference to fig. 9. The display device of the embodiment has a three-dimensional icon display module 11, an instruction acquisition module 12, an icon adding module 13 and an icon selecting module 14. The stereoscopic icon display module 11 displays a plurality of stereoscopic icons on the desktop interface of the electronic device, each of the stereoscopic icons has at least two surfaces, and of course, the stereoscopic icons may have more surfaces, and an icon of an application is displayed on each surface, and an icon of an application is displayed on only one surface of one stereoscopic icon. Therefore, the user can drive the three-dimensional icon to rotate by sending a signal for controlling the three-dimensional icon to rotate.
Since the surface of the stereoscopic icon displays an icon of an application program, after the stereoscopic icon is rotated, the surface with the largest area displayed on the touch display screen 2 is the main surface, and when a user clicks the stereoscopic icon, the application program corresponding to the icon displayed on the main surface can be opened. In this way, when a user needs to open an application program, the stereoscopic icon may be rotated first, and after the stereoscopic icon is rotated to the surface on which the application program is displayed, the rotation of the stereoscopic icon is stopped and the stereoscopic icon is clicked.
The instruction obtaining module 12 is configured to obtain an instruction for adding an application icon, where the instruction for adding an application icon may be issued by a user, for example, the user presses a specific key or issues a voice control instruction. Alternatively, the instruction to add an application icon may be automatically issued by the electronic device, for example, after the electronic device installs an application, the electronic device needs to display the application icon on the desktop, and then issues an instruction to add a new application icon.
The icon adding module 13 is used for newly adding the icon of the application program on the desktop interface. Since the icon of the application program is displayed on the surface of the stereoscopic icon in the embodiment, if the current stereoscopic icon has a blank surface, the icon of the application program can be displayed on the blank surface of the stereoscopic icon. If all the surfaces of the current stereo icons display the icons of the application programs, the shapes of the stereo icons need to be adjusted, namely the number of the surfaces of the stereo icons is increased, and if the number of the surfaces of the current stereo icons is six, the stereo icons are changed into a heptahedron after one surface is added. And after the surface number of the stereo icon is increased, displaying the icon of the newly added application program on the newly added surface of the stereo icon.
The icon selection module 14 is configured to receive an instruction from a user to display icons in a scrolling manner, for example, after entering a certain application, display a plurality of function icons under the application in a scrolling manner, or display icons of a plurality of applications in a scrolling manner on a desktop interface, or display a plurality of searched application icons in a scrolling manner on a search result display page. When the icon is displayed in a scrolling manner, a selection frame is displayed on the touch display screen, and when an application slides to the selection frame, prompt information, such as sound information or a vibration signal, is sent out.
According to the scheme, when the number of the icons of the application programs needing to be displayed by the electronic equipment is small, the number of the surfaces of the three-dimensional icons is small, and a user can conveniently and quickly find the corresponding application programs. When the icons of the application programs needing to be displayed are increased, the number of the surfaces of the three-dimensional icons can be increased through simple operation, and therefore the newly increased icons of the application programs can be rapidly displayed on the newly increased surfaces of the three-dimensional icons. In fact, if the number of icons to be displayed on the desktop is increased, the number of surfaces of the three-dimensional icons can also be increased, so as to realize infinite extensibility of the number of surfaces of the three-dimensional icons.
It should be noted that the above is only a preferred embodiment of the present invention, but the design concept of the present invention is not limited thereto, and any insubstantial modifications made by using the design concept also fall within the protection scope of the present invention.
