DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS (First Embodiment) A button control device according to the present embodiment controls the operation of buttons included in a command palette displayed on a computer screen. The command palette is, for example, a floating window in which a plurality of buttons associated with various commands of the Japanese input program are collected. When the pointer approaches the button from a predetermined direction, the button is enlarged in the pointer direction. Thereby, even if the button is small, it can be easily clicked.

On the command palette, a plurality of buttons are arranged in a horizontal row or a vertical row, and different moving directions are associated with adjacent buttons. This prevents the next button from being erroneously clicked even when the buttons are crowded.

FIG. 1 is a functional block diagram showing the configuration of the button control device. The button control device 10 includes a button processing unit 12 and a main processing unit 14. Button processing unit 1
2 processes display and operation of buttons on the command palette, and the main processing unit 14 executes a command associated with the button. The button control device 10 can be realized in hardware by elements such as a CPU of a computer, and can be realized in software by a program having a button control function or the like. Functional blocks. Therefore, these functional blocks can be realized in various forms by a combination of hardware and software.

The button processing section 12 includes an area holding section 16, a condition holding section 18, a spot monitoring section 20, an area adjusting section 22,
And a press determination unit 24.

The area holding section 16 stores an area initially set for detecting a click on a button on the screen by a mouse. The area holding unit 16 includes a button setting unit 30 and a button monitoring unit 32. Button setting section 3
0 sets the size and arrangement of the buttons. The button monitoring unit 32 monitors the position of the button on the screen. The button moves as the window displaying the button moves. If the button is clicked when the pointer is located in the button area grasped by the button setting unit 30 and the button monitoring unit 32, it is detected as a click on the button. The position of the button, the position of the pointer, and the click are determined by API (Application Pr
gram Interface).

The condition holding section 18 stores, as a condition for enlarging the area, a condition predetermined in relation to the moving direction of the pointer. The condition holding unit 18 includes an enlargement condition holding unit 34 and a setting condition holding unit 36. Condition holding unit 1
Numeral 8 holds an area enlargement condition. In the enlargement condition in the present embodiment, a direction in which the pointer is directed to the button and a direction different from that of the adjacent button is determined.
For example, when a direction from a top to a button is determined for a certain button, a direction to the button from the bottom is determined for an adjacent button. In this case, the condition may be satisfied at least in the Y-axis direction on the screen. For example, when the condition is from the top to the bottom, the direction of moving from the upper right to the lower left may also be handled as satisfying the condition.

The setting condition holding unit 36 sets different enlargement conditions according to the environment for displaying the buttons. For example, the moving direction of the pointer defined as each condition is changed when the command palette in which a plurality of buttons are arranged is displayed horizontally and vertically.

The spot monitor 20 detects the position of the pointer and monitors its movement. The spot monitoring unit 20
It includes a position detector 38 and a direction detector 40. The position detecting section 38 detects the position of the pointer, and the direction detecting section 40 detects the moving direction of the pointer from a change in the position coordinates. These may be detected using an API. The detection may be performed at the timing when some kind of event occurs, or may always be detected at minute time intervals by polling.

The area adjusting section 22 enlarges the detection area when the moving direction of the pointer satisfies the condition. Area adjustment unit 2
2 includes an enlargement determination unit 42, an area enlargement unit 44, and a button enlargement unit 46. The enlargement determination unit 42 determines whether the moving direction of the pointer satisfies the enlargement condition. When the moving direction of the pointer satisfies the enlarging condition, the area enlarging unit 44 enlarges the detection area of the click on the button in the direction of the pointer. It may be expanded in a plurality of directions including the direction of the pointer. For example, when the enlargement condition is a moving direction from top to bottom, the detection area may be enlarged upward and left and right. The button enlargement unit 46 enlarges the button image to the enlarged detection area. The button enlargement unit 46 may hold the enlarged button image in advance, or may enlarge the initial button image and display it. The user can visually grasp the expansion of the detection area.

The press determining unit 24 determines whether or not a button has been pressed by detecting a click when the pointer is positioned in the detection area. The detection area referred to here includes an enlarged detection area. If it is determined that the button is pressed, an image in a state where the button is clicked may be displayed. The press determination unit 24 notifies the main processing unit 14 that the button has been pressed.

The main processing section 14 includes a main execution section 26 and a main program holding section 28. The main execution unit 26 executes a command corresponding to the clicked button based on the program stored in the main program holding unit 28.

FIG. 2 shows the direction of movement of the pointer associated with the button. The command palette 50 includes a plurality of buttons, each of which is associated with a predetermined command, and which is associated with a moving direction of the pointer. Pointer 5 associated with button 56
The second movement direction 54 is a direction toward the button 56 from above. The moving direction 62 of the pointer 60 associated with the adjacent button 64 is a direction from below to the button 64, and is opposite to the moving direction 54. On the button 56, a mark 58 is displayed on the upper part of the button to clearly indicate the associated moving direction 54. A mark 66 is displayed below the button 64 to clearly indicate the associated moving direction 62.

FIG. 3 shows an enlarged detection area. In the command palette 50, when the pointer moves in the moving direction 70 associated with the button, the initial detection area 72 is enlarged to the enlarged detection area 74.
The enlargement direction includes an upward direction and a left and right direction which are directions toward the pointer. Since the detection area is enlarged in this way, clicking inside the enlarged detection area 74 even outside the initial detection area 72 is detected as a click on a button.

FIG. 4 shows the button enlarged. When the pointer 52 moves in the command palette 50 according to the moving direction 54 associated with the button, an enlargement button 76 is displayed. Since the user can easily grasp the enlargement of the detection area visually, the operability of clicking the button can be further improved.

FIG. 5 shows a table of enlargement conditions. The condition table 80 includes a button name column 82, a horizontal position condition 84, and a vertical position condition 86. In the button name column 82, a name for specifying a button displayed on the command palette 50 is recorded. The moving direction of the pointer associated with the button is recorded in the horizontal condition 84 and the vertical condition 86. The horizontal condition 84 is a condition for displaying the command palette 50 horizontally, and the vertical condition 86 is a condition for displaying the command palette 50 vertically. The enlargement condition is changed according to the state of the command palette 50.

(Second Embodiment) In this embodiment,
The second embodiment differs from the first embodiment in that the click detection area is enlarged without enlarging the button itself when the moving direction of the pointer satisfies the enlargement condition. In this case, an erroneous operation can be prevented without making the user almost conscious of the expansion of the detection area.

(Third Embodiment) In the present embodiment,
When a plurality of buttons are displayed in a plurality of rows and columns on the command palette, different moving directions of the pointer are associated with the respective buttons, and different button enlargement directions are set for the respective buttons.

FIG. 6 shows the direction of movement of the pointer associated with the button. On the command palette 90, at least 15 buttons are displayed in 3 rows and 5 columns. Other buttons are adjacent to each other. The direction of movement from a direction in which there is no adjacent button to the button is associated as a button enlargement condition. The number of adjacent buttons differs depending on the button. For example, button 9 displayed on the upper left
2 includes a moving direction 94, a moving direction 96, and a moving direction 9
8 is associated as an enlargement condition. The movement direction 102 is associated with the button 100 as an enlargement condition. The moving direction of the button 104 is not associated with the other buttons in all directions around the button 104. Unlike the first embodiment, adjacent buttons may be associated with the same movement direction.

FIG. 7 shows the direction in which the detection area of a click on a button is enlarged. Each button shown in this figure corresponds to each button shown in FIG. When the respective enlargement conditions are satisfied, the initial detection area 106 becomes the enlargement detection area 1
08, and the initial detection area 110 is expanded to the enlarged detection area 112. The initial detection area 114 is not enlarged. The operability is improved by not expanding the position to cover the adjacent button, but expanding the button to an empty space.

(Fourth Embodiment) In the present embodiment,
When a plurality of buttons overlap and are displayed on the screen, the overlapping state is controlled. When a plurality of buttons overlap, an enlargement condition is set for each of them. When the enlargement condition of the button located in the lower layer among the overlapping buttons is satisfied, the button is raised to the upper layer. Because part of the button that was not visible until then is exposed,
The effect is substantially the same as the enlargement of the button.

FIG. 8 shows the direction of movement of the pointer associated with the overlapping buttons. Command palette 12
Numeral 0 denotes a floating window, which is always located above the overlapping window 121. Button 12
2 overlies the button 128, at least a portion of the button 128 is hidden. Button 122 has pointer 12
The movement direction 126 of the pointer 130 is associated with the button 128 as the enlargement condition.

FIG. 9 shows a state in which a button located in a lower layer is raised to an upper layer. Pointer 130 moves in direction 132
When the button 128 is moved according to
The hidden part is displayed by floating on the upper layer 2. As a result, the detection area of the click on the hidden button is substantially enlarged, so that the operability is improved.

(Fifth Embodiment) The button control device in the present embodiment is realized as a part of a function on a portable terminal. No pointer is displayed on the screen of the portable terminal using the stylus pen. The user moves the spot so as to draw a line toward the button while touching the touch panel with the stylus pen, and finally taps at a desired position. When the moving direction of the spot satisfies the enlargement condition, the tap detection area for the button is enlarged. If the finally tapped position is included in the enlarged detection area, it is detected as a tap for that button. In a small screen of the portable terminal, the operability of the spot indication can be improved even when the tip of the stylus pen is round.

The present invention has been described based on the embodiments. This embodiment is an exemplification, and it is understood by those skilled in the art that various modifications can be made to the combination of each component and each processing process, and that such modifications are also within the scope of the present invention. . Hereinafter, modified examples will be described.

In the above embodiment, the buttons displayed in the window are controlled. In the modified example, an icon of a file or folder, a cell displayed on the screen of the spreadsheet program, a character or a symbol displayed on the screen, or the like may be the control target.

In the above embodiment, the buttons to be controlled are mainly displayed on the command palette. In a modification, a button displayed in a window other than a floating window controlled by various application software may be used.

In the fourth embodiment, only the hidden buttons are raised to the upper layer. In a variant, activate the entire window, including the hidden buttons,
It is displayed on the upper layer of the overlapping window.
