For this reason, the display of a touch panel can be used effectively. In addition, since the specific area for displaying the menu is set at a specific position on the inner periphery of the touch panel, compared to a display device in which the operation switch is provided separately, an inexpensive configuration that does not require a separate member and can do.

  A first embodiment of the present invention will be described with reference to FIGS.

  FIG. 1 is a functional block diagram showing the display device of the first embodiment. FIG. 2 is a front view of the display device.

  The display device 101 includes a touch panel 102, a specific area setting unit 103, a display operation unit 104, a menu display unit 105, and a function execution unit 106.

  The touch panel 102 is a panel having a display function capable of various displays and an input function capable of touch input. The specific area setting unit 103 sets the specific areas 102A, 102B, 102C, and 102D on the inner periphery of the touch panel 102. The specific areas 102 </ b> A, 102 </ b> B, 102 </ b> C, and 102 </ b> D are substantially L-shaped and connected to two sides adjacent to the corner inside the touch panel 102, and are set at four locations. The display operation unit 104 operates the menu display unit 105 when detecting that the specific areas 102A, 102B, 102C, and 102D in the touch panel 102 are touched. In addition, the menu display unit 105 displays a menu that allows selection of executable functions on the screen. This menu is a menu for setting the display device 101 when the display device is not connected to a personal computer (personal computer) or when application software of the personal computer is not activated. In addition, speakers 107 are arranged at two locations below the touch panel 102.

  FIG. 3 is an explanatory diagram illustrating a state where a specific area is touched in the display device according to the first embodiment. FIG. 4 is an explanatory diagram showing a state in which different specific areas are touched in the display device.

  FIG. 3 shows how the user touches the specific area 102 </ b> C with the fingertip 301. As shown in FIG. 3, when the user touches the specific area 102 </ b> C with the fingertip 301, the display operation unit 104 detects this touch. When the touch is detected, the display operation unit 104 operates the menu display unit 105, so that the menu 102 E is displayed on the touch panel 102.

  This menu 102E is a menu related to the setting of the display device 101. For example, “automatic adjustment” for automatically adjusting all of the vertical direction, left and right direction, and horizontal size, and “right and left direction adjustment for adjusting the display position in the horizontal direction” `` Display adjustment '', `` Up / down display adjustment '' to adjust the display position in the vertical direction, `` Horizontal size '' to adjust when there is no left and right screen size, `` Speaker volume adjustment '' to adjust the volume are displayed ing. The user can select and execute one of the displayed menus 102E. This selection can be made by sliding the fingertip 301 touching the specific area 102C as it is and releasing the fingertip 301 on the function desired to be executed. That is, the user can select a function to be executed by dragging.

  FIG. 4 shows how the user touches the specific area 102 </ b> D with the fingertip 301. As shown in FIG. 4, when the user touches the specific area 102D with the fingertip 301, the display operation unit 104 detects this touch and operates the menu display unit 105, so that the menu 102F is displayed.

  This menu 102F is a menu different from the menu 102E shown in FIG. The menu 102F includes, for example, “brightness adjustment” for adjusting the brightness, “contrast adjustment” for automatically adjusting the contrast and manual adjustment, “R adjustment” for adjusting red, and “G adjustment” for adjusting green. “B adjustment” for adjusting the blue color is displayed. As described with reference to FIG. 3, the user can select and execute one function from the displayed menu 102 </ b> F by releasing the slide of the fingertip 301 and the fingertip 301.

  The operation state of the display device 101 configured as described above will be described mainly with reference to FIG. FIG. 5 is a flowchart showing the operation of the display device of the first embodiment.

  The user recognizes that the specific area for displaying the menu on the touch panel 102 of the display device 101 is set by the specific area setting unit 103. This is because the user is reading the explanation described in the instruction manual of the display device 101.

  First, the display operation unit 104 detects whether or not the touch panel 102 has been touched (step 501; hereinafter, “step” is referred to as “S”).

  When the user touches the touch panel 102 with the fingertip 301 (Yes in S501) and the touched position is within the specific area set by the specific area setting unit 103 (Yes in S502), the execution corresponding to the specific area A possible menu is displayed (S503). For example, if the touched position is the specific area 102C, the menu display unit 105 displays the menu 102E so as to extend from the touched specific area 102C to the center as shown in FIG. If the specific area 102D is touched, the menu display unit 105 displays the menu 102F so as to extend from the touched specific area 102D to the center as shown in FIG.

  When the user slides and releases the fingertip 301 over the menu function that the user wants to operate, the function execution unit 106 determines that one of the functions displayed on the menu has been selected (Yes in S504). Then, the function execution unit 106 executes the selected function (S505). If the function is “adjust left-right display” shown in FIG. 3, the user can adjust the left-right position of the display screen according to the display. If the function is “contrast adjustment” shown in FIG. 4, the user can adjust the contrast of the screen according to the display.

  If the execution of the selected function is finished (S505) and then the touch panel 102 is not touched, the control device (not shown) determines that the function is finished (Yes in S506).

  If the touched position is not a specific area in S502 (No in S502), the function execution unit 106 executes a function set in advance for the touched position (S507), and the process proceeds to S506. . If no function is set for the touched position in S507, no operation is performed, and the process proceeds to S506.

  In the display device 101 that operates in this way, an icon for displaying the menu is not displayed in the touch panel 102, and it is not necessary to display the icon, so there is no risk of reducing the display area. For this reason, a display part can be used effectively. Further, since the original function of the touch panel 102 is utilized without arranging a separate switch for menu display, it is not necessary to arrange a separate switch, and the price of the display device 101 can be reduced. .

  Furthermore, since the operation for displaying the menu (operation for touching) and the operation for selecting one of the menus (operation for sliding) are continuous, operability is improved. That is, in a display device in which a separate switch for displaying a menu is arranged outside the touch panel (see Patent Document 1), after a separate switch is pressed, a predetermined part of the touch panel is touched. In addition, although the operation is temporarily interrupted, the display device 101 can eliminate the interruption of the operation. Further, since the operation is continuous, the display device 101 can provide a user interface that can further reduce operation steps.

  In addition, when the user touches a specific area, the display is controlled so that the menu is displayed so as to extend from the touched specific area to the center side. Easy display.

  In the first embodiment, the specific areas 102 </ b> A to 102 </ b> D have been described as being substantially L-shaped areas, but it is also possible to change the specific areas.

  For example, as shown in FIG. 6, it is conceivable to set specific areas 102G, 102H, 102I, and 102J as line-shaped areas along the inner periphery from corner to corner.

  Further, as shown in FIG. 7, it may be possible to set the specific areas 102K, 102L, 102M, 102N, 102O, 102P, 102Q, and 102R to eight areas. In this way, if the display device 101 is relatively large, it is possible to set eight areas as shown in FIG. These eight areas can be set as specific areas for displaying pull-down menus of application programs operating on the personal computer. When set in this way, it is not necessary to display a pull-down menu or an icon, so that the screen can be used more widely.

  Furthermore, as shown in FIG. 8, the specific areas 102S, 102T, 102U, and 102V can be set to areas including a part of one side. The specific areas 102S, 102T, 102U, and 102V shown in FIG. 8 are set to areas other than the corner portions.

  Next, a second embodiment of the present invention will be described with reference to FIGS.

  The touch panel 902 is a panel having a display function capable of various displays and an input function capable of touch input. The specific area setting unit 903 sets the specific areas 902A, 902B, 902C, and 902D on the inner periphery of the touch panel 902. The display operation unit 904 operates the menu display unit 905 when detecting that the specific areas 902A, 902B, 902C, and 92D in the touch panel 902 are touched. In addition, the menu display unit 905 displays a menu on the touch panel 902 so that an executable function can be selected. This menu is a menu of functions that can be executed for the browser when the browser is running, and a menu of functions that can be executed for the mail function when the mail function is running. is there. The specific area setting unit 903 sets a menu to be displayed for each specific area. For this reason, the menu displayed when the specific area 902A is touched and the menu displayed when the specific area 902C is touched are set differently (see, for example, FIGS. 14 and 15). . The function execution unit 906 executes the function selected by the user. The specific area setting unit 903, the display operation unit 904, the menu display unit 905, and the function execution unit 906 are configured using an arithmetic device such as a CPU (Central Processing Unit), a memory, and various electronic devices. Further, the entire operation is controlled by a control device (not shown).

  The communication unit 907 is a wireless communication unit that wirelessly communicates with a base station when performing voice communication or data communication.

  As shown in FIGS. 10, 11, and 12, the communication terminal 900 includes a display device 901 and a terminal main body 908. The display device 901 is slidably attached to the terminal body 908. The display device 901 includes a receiver 909 that outputs the other party's voice during voice communication. The terminal body 908 also includes a plurality of keys 910 as input devices and a microphone 911 for sending a user's voice during voice communication.

FIG. 14 is an explanatory diagram showing screen transition in a state where the browser is used in the communication terminal. FIG. 15 is an explanatory diagram showing screen transitions in different states using the browser. FIG. 16 is an explanatory diagram showing a screen transition in a state where the mail function is used in the communication terminal. FIG. 17 is an explanatory diagram showing screen transitions in different states using the mail function.

  As shown in FIG. 13, four specific areas are set by the specific area setting unit 903 on the inner periphery of the touch panel 902. And the shape of the area is a substantially L-shape connected to two sides adjacent to the corner.

  As shown in FIG. 14, when a browser is used, a browser screen 1401 is displayed on the touch panel 902 which is also a display. At this time, when the user touches the specific area 902A, the menu 1402 is displayed so as to extend from the touched specific area 902A to the center side.

  Here, when the user releases the fingertip from the touch panel 902, the menu 1402 disappears and the display returns to the browser screen 1401 before the specific area 902A is touched.

  Here, when the user slides the fingertip without releasing it from the touch panel 902 and releases the fingertip from the touch panel 902 at “Return”, the “Return” function displayed in the menu 1402 is executed. Since the “return” function is a function for returning to the previous browser screen, the previous browser screen 1403 is displayed.

  As shown in FIG. 15, when the user touches the specific area 902C with the fingertip, a menu 1501 different from the menu shown in FIG. 14 is displayed. At this time, the menu 1501 is displayed so as to extend from the touched specific area 902C to the center side.

  When the user slides the fingertip to “favorite registration” without releasing the fingertip from the touch panel 902 and releases the fingertip at this portion, a screen 1502 indicating “registering as a favorite” is displayed. A URL (Uniform Resource Locator) is registered as a favorite. If registered as a favorite, the user can browse a WEB (World Wide Web) page to be easily browsed by designating the registered URL.

  As shown in FIG. 16, when the mail function is used, a screen related to the mail function is displayed on the touch panel 902 which is also a display. This displayed screen is a reply mail edit screen 1601 among the screens related to the mail function. At this time, when the user touches the specific area 902B, the menu 1602 is displayed so as to extend from the touched portion to the center side. In this case, the menu 1602 has only one type of function, and that function is a continuous display of the reply source mail. Further, the menu 1602 at this time is a display screen of the reply source mail.

  Here, when the user releases the fingertip from the touch panel 902, the menu 1602 disappears and only the reply mail edit screen 1601 before the specific area 902B is touched is displayed.

  Here, when the user slides the fingertip without releasing it from the touch panel 902 and releases the fingertip at the menu 1602, the reply source mail screen (menu 1602) is continuously displayed. When the user confirms the content of the reply source mail and the user touches again the specific area 902B touched first, the reply source mail screen (menu 1602) disappears, and the touch panel 902 displays only the reply mail edit screen 1601. Become.

  As shown in FIG. 17, when the mail function is used and the reply mail edit screen 1601 is displayed on the touch panel 902, when the user touches the specific area 902D with the fingertip, the menu 1701 is touched. It is displayed so as to extend from the part to the center side.

  Here, when the user releases the fingertip from the touch panel 902, the menu 1701 disappears, and the display is only the reply mail editing screen 1601 before the specific area 902D is touched.

  If the user slides the fingertip without releasing it from the touch panel 902 and releases the fingertip at “temporary storage”, the display screen 1702 of “temporary storage” is displayed, and the reply mail being edited Is temporarily stored. With this temporary storage, the user can recall and edit the reply mail temporarily stored.

  The operation of the mobile terminal 900 configured as described above will be described mainly with reference to FIG. FIG. 18 is a flowchart showing the operation of the communication terminal according to the second embodiment.

  First, the display operation unit 904 detects whether or not the touch panel 902 is touched (S1801). When the user touches the touch panel 902 with a fingertip (Yes in S1801), and the display operation unit 904 detects that the touched position is within the range of the specific area 902A set by the specific area setting unit 903 (in S1801) Yes), the menu display unit 905 displays a menu corresponding to the specific area 902A. Then, when the fingertip is slid to the top of the menu to be operated, the function is selected. Then, the selected function is executed by the function execution unit 906 (S1805).

  Specific examples of the operations of S1801, S1802, S1803, S1804, and S1805 include FIG. 14 when a browser is used. As shown in FIG. 14, when the specific area 902A is touched, a menu 1402 is displayed. Further, when “Return” is selected from the menu 1402, the previous screen 1403 is displayed.

  In S1802, when the touch position is not the specific area 902A (No in S1802), the display operation unit 904 next detects whether or not the touch position is the specific area 902B (S1806). If the touch position is the specific area 902B (Yes in S1806), the menu display unit 905 displays a menu corresponding to the specific area 902B (S1807). When the user selects one function from the displayed menu (Yes in S1808), the function execution unit 906 executes the function selected by the user (S1805).

  Specific examples of the operations in S1806, S1807, S1808, and S1805 are shown in FIG. 16 when the mail function is used. As shown in FIG. 16, when the specific area 902B is touched, a menu 1602 is displayed. The menu 1602 in this case is only one of the functions for continuously displaying the reply source mail. Further, when the user selects the function for displaying the reply source mail by sliding and releasing the fingertip, the function execution unit 906 executes the function and keeps the reply source mail displayed.

  Next, in S1806, when the touch position is not the specific area 902B (No in S1806), the display operation unit 904 detects whether the touch position is the specific area 902C or 902D (S1809). If the touch position is the specific area 902C or 902D (Yes in S1809), the menu display unit 905 displays a menu corresponding to the specific area 902C or 902D. When the user selects a menu from the displayed menus (Yes in S1811), the function execution unit 906 executes the function selected by the user (S1805).

  Specific examples of the operations in S1809, S1810, S1811, and S1805 are shown in FIGS. FIG. 15 shows a case where a browser is used. When a specific area 902C is touched, a menu 1501 is displayed. Further, when “favorite registration” is selected from the menu, the displayed URL is registered as a favorite. FIG. 17 shows a case where the mail function is used. When the specific area 902D is touched, a menu 1701 is displayed, and when “temporary storage” is selected from the menu 1701, Reply emails being edited are temporarily stored.

  If the touch position is neither the specific area 902C nor 902D (No in S1809), the touched position is not a specific area 902A, 902B, 902C, or 902D. The function is executed (S1812). As an example of this, there is an example of touching a portion where the link is set while using a browser. When touched, a page with a link is displayed. If the function is not set at the touched position, it is determined whether or not the control device (not shown) ends without executing anything (S1813). If it is determined in S1813 that the process is not ended, the control proceeds to S1801.

  As described above, the display device 901 of the communication terminal 900 employs the following display method.

  A display method of the display device is a display device 901 having a touch panel 902 that can be input by various displays and touches. The display device 901 displays a plurality of executable functions as a menu and executes a selected function. It is a display method. The display method of the display device 901 further includes a specific area setting step, a menu display step, and a function execution step.

  The specific area setting step is a step of setting specific areas 902A, 902B, 902C, and 902D on the inner periphery of the touch panel 902. The menu display step is a step of displaying a menu set in advance for the specific areas 902A, 902B, 902C, and 902D when the specific areas 902A, 902B, 902C, and 902D are touched. Furthermore, the function execution step is a step of executing the selected function when it is determined that one of the menus displayed in the menu display step is selected.

  Further, the display device 901 of the communication terminal 900 employs a display control program in a display device having a touch panel 902 capable of various displays and touch input. This display control program is a program for causing a computer to realize a specific area setting function, a menu display function, a display operation function, and an execution function.

  The specific area setting function is a function for setting a specific area in advance on the inner periphery of the touch panel. The menu display function is a function for displaying executable functions as a menu. The display operation function is a function for operating the menu display function when it is detected that a specific area is touched. Furthermore, the execution function is a function for executing the selected function when it is determined that one of the functions in the displayed menu is selected.

  If such a display method or display control program is employed, the communication terminal 900 does not need to display an icon for displaying a menu in the touch panel 902, and can effectively use a limited display portion. In addition, it is not necessary to attach a switch for displaying a menu as a separate member, and the touch panel 902 has an original function. Therefore, an inexpensive configuration with suppressed price increase can be achieved.

  In particular, since the communication terminal 900 is a portable terminal, the size of the touch panel 902 is limited. However, if such a display method or display control program is employed, the small touch panel 902 can be used more effectively.

  Further, in this communication terminal 900, the determination that the menu has been selected is determined as the selected function of the function that has been slid from the touch of the specific area and touched to the end. For this reason, the user can continuously perform a touch for displaying a menu and a slide operation for selecting a function. Thereby, according to this invention, operation | movement cannot be interrupted easily and it can prevent impairing operativity.

  In the communication terminal 900 according to the second embodiment, the communication unit 907 performs data communication and voice communication wirelessly with the base station. However, the communication unit 907 is not limited to the wireless communication and can be used for wired communication. The present invention can be applied to a facsimile machine.

  Further, the specific areas shown in the first embodiment and the second embodiment are described as being indicated by lines on the touch panel, but this is for easy understanding and is not necessarily specified.
