  However, in each of the documents described in Patent Documents 1 and 2, a part of the text may be hidden by the pop-up subwindow. The text hidden by the subwindow cannot be read as it is. To read the hidden text, you need to exit the popup. When the popup is displayed, it may be annoying for the user to perform an operation to end the popup in order to display the portion hidden by the sub-window.

  Although the pop-up contents are effective information for deepening the understanding of the text body, it is necessary to end the pop-up in order to read the text body. It cannot be used effectively.

  The objective of this invention is providing the information processing apparatus, the window display method, and program which solve the said problem and a text does not hide by a subwindow.

  In order to achieve the above object, an information processing apparatus of the present invention displays an input unit, a display unit, a browser unit that displays electronic text on the display unit, and a sub-window in a window in which the electronic text is displayed. A window display processing unit, wherein the window display processing unit detects a display position of the character string designated through the input unit in the window, inserts the sub-window in an area adjacent to the display position, and When the sub-window is inserted, the browser unit displays the electronic text in an area other than the insertion area.

  The window display method of the present invention is a window display method performed in an information processing apparatus having a browser unit that displays electronic text on a display unit, and a window display processing unit that displays a subwindow within the window in which the electronic text is displayed. The window display processing unit detects a display position of the character string designated through the input unit in the window, and inserts the subwindow in an area adjacent to the display position; and the browser unit And displaying the electronic text in an area other than the area in which the subwindow is inserted.

  The program of the present invention is a program for causing a computer to execute a process of displaying an electronic text on a display unit and displaying a sub-window in a window in which the electronic text is displayed. The computer is caused to execute processing for detecting a display position in the window, processing for inserting a subwindow in an area adjacent to the display position, and processing for displaying the electronic text in an area other than the area in which the subwindow is inserted.

  According to the present invention, since the electronic text is not hidden by the subwindow, it is not necessary to perform a pop-up end operation for displaying the portion hidden by the subwindow. Therefore, the troublesomeness of the pop-up end operation forced on the user at the time of pop-up display can be eliminated.

  Further, since the text body can be read and read back while the sub window is displayed (pop-up display state), the information displayed in the pop-up can be used effectively.

Next, embodiments of the present invention will be described with reference to the drawings.
(First embodiment)
FIG. 1 is a block diagram showing the configuration of the information processing apparatus according to the first embodiment of the present invention.

  The information processing apparatus illustrated in FIG. 1 is a computer system that operates according to a program, and includes a control unit 1, an input unit 2, a display unit 3, a storage unit 4, and a communication unit 5.

  The input unit 2 includes a keyboard and a mouse. The display unit 3 includes a display device represented by a liquid crystal display or a plasma display. The communication unit 5 is a modem or the like, and can communicate with an external device via a network represented by the Internet.

  The storage unit 4 is a storage device represented by a semiconductor memory, a hard disk, or the like, and stores various programs and data necessary for operating the information processing apparatus. Resource information 40 and electronic text 41 are stored in the storage unit 4.

  The resource information 40 includes various dictionary data such as an encyclopedia, a scientific dictionary, an English-Japanese dictionary, a Japanese-English dictionary, and a Web dictionary. The Web dictionary is a dictionary provided on the Internet, for example, a free encyclopedia. The electronic text 41 is an electronic text such as a novel or a scientific magazine. The program and the electronic text 41 may be provided via a network, or may be provided on a recording medium such as a CD-ROM (Compact Disc Read Only Memory) or a DVD. When a recording medium is used, a driver device for reading information from the recording medium needs to be mounted on the information processing apparatus.

  The control unit 1 executes various programs stored in the storage unit 4 and receives an instruction signal (a signal corresponding to an input operation by the user) from the input unit 2 to perform necessary processing or control. The control unit 1 includes an information search unit 10 and a display control unit 11. The display control unit 11 includes a browser unit 11a and a pop-up display processing unit 11b. These information search unit 10 and display control unit 11 (browser unit 11a and pop-up display processing unit 11b) are functional units realized by a program.

  The browser unit 11a displays the electronic text 41 on the display unit 3. The information search unit 10 obtains information related to a character string (word, phrase, sentence) designated by the user in the electronic text displayed on the display unit 3 (translation and meaning, related information such as a figure and a table), Obtained from the resource information 40. The information search unit 10 may acquire related information from an external resource source (such as a server) through a network. The pop-up display processing unit 11 b pops up the related information acquired by the information search unit 10 on the display unit 3. The browser unit 11a may have a function of performing a pop-up display process by the pop-up display processing unit 11b.

  In the information processing apparatus of the present embodiment, the browser unit 11a reads an electronic text 41 such as a novel or a scientific magazine from the storage unit 4 (or recording medium) in response to an instruction signal from the input unit 2, and the electronic text is read out. Displayed on the display unit 3.

  When the user designates a character string in the electronic text through the input unit 2, the information search unit 10 acquires related information of the designated character string from the resource information 40. Then, the pop-up display processing unit 11b sets a pop-up window in an area adjacent to the display area of the designated character string, and displays related information acquired by the information search unit 10 in the pop-up window.

  FIG. 2 is a flowchart showing a procedure of pop-up display processing executed by the display control unit 11.

  Referring to FIG. 2, the pop-up display processing unit 11b determines whether or not a search for related information of the designated character string has been performed (step 100). This determination is made based on whether or not related information is received from the information search unit 10.

  When the related information search is performed, the pop-up display processing unit 11b subsequently detects the display position of the designated character string (step 101). The display position of the designated character string is detected based on the coordinate data in the text display window. For example, the browser unit 11a manages the display position of characters and the like in the window as coordinate data. The pop-up display processing unit 11b detects the display position of the designated character string based on the coordinate data in the window managed by the browser unit 11a.

  When the display position of the designated character string is detected, the pop-up display processing unit 11b subsequently changes the text display area in accordance with the preset pop-up window display conditions and is adjacent to the display position of the designated character string. A pop-up window having a predetermined size is inserted into the area (step 102).

  The display condition of the pop-up window includes information such as the window size and display position, and the character size. These pieces of information can be set arbitrarily. Here, as a default state, the window size is about several lines of display text, and the display position of the pop-up window is directly below the specified character string. The character size is the same character size as the text. According to this default condition, a pop-up window having a size of about 3 lines is inserted immediately below the designated character string.

  After the pop-up window is inserted, the pop-up display processing unit 11b displays the related information of the designated character string in the pop-up window with the same character size as the text (step 103). Thereafter, the browser unit 11a displays the electronic text in an area other than the area where the pop-up window is inserted.

  According to the above pop-up display processing, the related information of the designated character string is displayed in a pop-up near the designated character string. When viewing related information while viewing a specified character string, the viewpoint moves between the pop-up display position and the display position of the specified character string. If the movement distance of this viewpoint is long, eye fatigue increases. According to the present embodiment, the related information is displayed in a pop-up near the designated character string, so that eye fatigue can be suppressed.

  Further, since the electronic text is displayed in an area other than the area where the pop-up window is inserted, the pop-up window does not overlap with the text display area. Therefore, the user can read the text or read it back in the pop-up display state.

  FIG. 3 shows an example of text display, and FIG. 4 shows an example of pop-up display of related information related to the designated character string in the text shown in FIG. In this example, an encyclopedia is set as resource information for information retrieval. The size of the pop-up window is about five lines of display text, and the display position of the pop-up window is directly below the specified character string.

  As shown in FIGS. 3 and 4, when the character string 21 located on the ninth line from the top of the paragraph 20 is designated, related information is retrieved from the encyclopedia. By inserting a wrapping at the beginning of each of the tenth to fourteenth lines from the top of the paragraph 20, a window display area corresponding to the size of five lines is secured immediately below the designated character string 21. . A pop-up window 22 is displayed in the secured area, and related information as a search result is displayed in the pop-up window 22. Usually, a pop-up window display area can be secured by inserting a command indicating wrapping into a program that displays text.

  According to the example shown in FIG. 4, the pop-up window 22 is inserted between the ninth line and the tenth line from the top of the paragraph 20. In this case, the text after the 10th line is displayed below the pop-up window 22. Therefore, a problem that a part of the text is hidden by the pop-up window 22 does not occur.

  Note that the display position of the pop-up window is not limited to just below the designated character string. The pop-up window may be displayed in an area such as immediately above, right next, or left next to the specified character string. By controlling the position at which the wrapping is inserted, a pop-up window can be inserted in any area of the designated character string directly above, directly below, right adjacent, and left adjacent.

  Further, as shown in FIG. 4, a scroll button 22 a may be provided in a part of the pop-up window 22. By moving the button 22a up and down, the related information displayed in the pop-up window can be scrolled up and down. This scrolling display is effective when the data size of the related information that is the search result is large.

  Further, the insertion position of the pop-up window may be changed according to the type of resource information to be used. For example, when a Japanese translation of a specified character string in an English text is acquired from an English-Japanese dictionary and the acquired Japanese translation is displayed in a pop-up, a pop-up window 22 is displayed at the upper right of the text display window as shown in FIG. It may be fixedly inserted at the position. According to this display, the Japanese translation of the designated character string is always displayed on the upper right regardless of the display position of the designated character string. Therefore, when an English text is read, a Japanese translation of an English word specified on a certain page can be referred to on another page. Also in this case, the electronic text is displayed in an area other than the area where the pop-up window 22 is inserted. Therefore, a part of the text is not hidden by the pop-up window 22 by changing the text display area.

(Second Embodiment)
When inserting a pop-up window into an adjacent area of a specified character string, if the size of the pop-up window is increased, the text may be difficult to read because the text is separated by the pop-up window. For example, in the display example shown in FIG. 4, when a pop-up window 22 having a window size of about 20 lines is displayed immediately below the specified character string 21, the space between the 9th sentence and the 10th sentence is 20 It will be separated by a pop-up window 22 of about lines, making it difficult to read the text. Considering the readability of the text, it is desirable to reduce the size of the pop-up window inserted in the adjacent area of the designated character string.

  On the other hand, when the related information is read or read back, it is preferable that the number of scroll operations is small. When the data size of the related information is large, most of the related information is displayed by scroll operation, and the number of scroll operations increases. Therefore, for related information with a large data size, it is desirable to increase the size of the pop-up window to reduce the scroll operation range.

  The information processing apparatus according to the second embodiment of the present invention realizes the above conflicting demands, and the size and display of the pop-up window according to the data size of the related information that is the search result of the designated character string It is configured to switch positions.

  The information processing apparatus according to the present embodiment has the configuration illustrated in FIG. 1, but is different from the information processing apparatus according to the first embodiment in that the size and display position of a pop-up window are switched according to the data size of related information. .

  The storage unit 4 displays the first pop-up window display condition used for popping up related information whose data size is less than the threshold, and the first used for popping up related information whose data size is greater than or equal to the threshold. 2 has a table storing the display conditions of the pop-up window.

  The threshold value of the data size of the related information is set to a value corresponding to the data size at which about 10 sentences are displayed in the text display window.

  The display condition of the first pop-up window includes items such as the window size and display position, and the character size. Each item can be arbitrarily set. Here, the display conditions of the first pop-up window are the same as the display conditions of the pop-up window described in the first embodiment.

  The display condition of the second pop-up window also includes items such as the window size and display position, and the character size. Each item can be arbitrarily set. Here, as a default state, the window size is about 10 lines of display text (a size larger than the size specified in the display conditions of the first pop-up window), and the display position of the pop-up window is the text display area. It is the lowest position. The character size is the same character size as the text. According to the display condition of the second pop-up window, the text display area is changed so that a pop-up window having a size of about 10 lines is inserted in the lowermost area of the text display area.

  FIG. 6 is a flowchart illustrating a procedure of pop-up display processing executed by the display control unit 11 of the information processing apparatus according to the present embodiment. Hereinafter, the pop-up display process will be described with reference to FIGS. 1 and 6.

  The pop-up display processing unit 11b determines whether or not retrieval of related information of the designated character string has been performed (step 200). The process of step 200 is the same as the process of step 100 in FIG.

  When the related information search is performed, the pop-up display processing unit 11b subsequently determines whether or not the data size of the related information obtained as a search result is equal to or larger than the threshold (step 201).

  When the data size of the related information is less than the threshold, the pop-up display processing unit 11b detects the display position of the designated character string (step 202), and changes the text display area according to the display condition of the first pop-up window. Then, a pop-up window is inserted in an area adjacent to the display position of the designated character string (step 203). Then, the pop-up display processing unit 11b displays the related information of the designated character string in the inserted pop-up window with the same character size as the text (step 204). The processing in steps 202 to 204 is the same as the processing in steps 101 to 103 in FIG.

  If the data size of the related information is greater than or equal to the threshold, the popup display processing unit 11b changes the text display area according to the display conditions of the second popup window and inserts the popup window at the lowest position (step 205). ). Thereafter, in step 204, the related information of the designated character string is displayed with the same character size as the text in the inserted pop-up window. The browser unit 11a displays the electronic text in an area other than the area where the pop-up window is inserted.

  According to the above pop-up display process, when the data size of the related information is less than the threshold value, the same pop-up display process as in the first embodiment is performed. Thereby, the effect similar to 1st Embodiment can be acquired.

  When the data size of the related information is equal to or larger than the threshold value, the pop-up display is performed according to the display condition of the second pop-up window. In this case, the pop-up window can be displayed in a size larger than the size specified by the display condition of the first pop-up window. Thereby, it is possible to reduce the number of scroll operations when the related information is read or read back.

  FIG. 7 is a schematic diagram showing a pop-up window inserted at the lowest position of the text display area. In this example, a wrapping is inserted at the head of each line in an area of several lines from the bottom of the text display area, and a pop-up window 22 is inserted in the area where the wrapping is inserted. Therefore, the pop-up window 22 does not overlap with the text display area. Further, when the pop-up window 22 is inserted at the lowermost position, the text is not divided by the pop-up window 22, so that the size of the pop-up window 22 can be increased.

  In the pop-up display based on the display conditions of the second pop-up window, the pop-up window 22 may be inserted at any position as long as the text is not divided.

(Third embodiment)
The data size of the related information varies depending on the resource type. Therefore, it is desirable to set the pop-up window display conditions for each resource. The information processing apparatus according to the third embodiment of the present invention is configured to be able to set a pop-up window display condition in accordance with such a resource type.

  The information processing apparatus according to the present embodiment has the configuration illustrated in FIG. 1, but is different from the information processing apparatus according to the first embodiment in that the display condition of the pop-up window is changed according to the type of resource.

  The storage unit 4 includes a table that defines display conditions for pop-up windows for each resource. The table stores pop-up window display conditions for each of the resources (such as resource information 40 and Web information provided by an external device such as a server) that can be used for information search by the information search unit 10. The display condition of the pop-up window includes information such as the window size and display position, and the character size.

  For example, when an English-Japanese dictionary, English-English dictionary, encyclopedia, Web dictionary (for translation), and Web information (newspaper article) can be used as resources, a display condition of a popup window is set for each of these resources. Here, in each resource, the same value is set for the window display position and the character size, and only the window size is different. Specifically, the English-Japanese dictionary has a window size of 2 lines, the English-English dictionary has a window size of 3 lines, the encyclopedia has a window size of 5 lines, and the translation has a window size of 5 lines. The newspaper article has a window size of 8 lines.

  In addition to the above table, the storage unit 4 stores predetermined pop-up window display conditions as display conditions for other resources. Here, the other resources indicate resources whose pop-up window display conditions are not registered in the table. The contents of the predetermined pop-up window display condition can be arbitrarily set.

  FIG. 8 is a flowchart illustrating a procedure of the pop-up display process executed by the pop-up display processing unit 11b of the information processing apparatus according to the present embodiment. Hereinafter, the pop-up display process will be described with reference to FIGS. 1 and 8.

  The pop-up display processing unit 11b determines whether or not a search for related information of the designated character string has been performed (step 300). The process of step 300 is the same as the process of step 100 in FIG.

  When the related information search is performed, subsequently, the pop-up display processing unit 11b specifies the resource used by the information search unit 10 for the information search (step 301), and the display condition of the pop-up window of the specified resource is It is checked whether or not it is registered in the table of the storage unit (step 302). Information for identifying the resource used for the information search is supplied from the information search unit 10 to the pop-up display processing unit 11b.

  When the pop-up window display condition is registered in the table, the pop-up display processing unit 11b changes the text display area according to the registered pop-up window display condition and inserts the pop-up window (step 303). Then, the pop-up display processing unit 11b displays the related information of the designated character string with the same character size as the text in the set pop-up window (step 304).

  When the display condition of the pop-up window is not registered in the table, the pop-up display processing unit 11b acquires a predetermined pop-up window display condition (other resource display condition) from the storage unit 4, and follows the pop-up window display condition. The text display area is changed and a pop-up window is inserted (step 305). Thereafter, the process proceeds to step 304, and the related information of the designated character string is displayed in the pop-up window.

  After the pop-up display is made in step 304, the browser unit 11a displays the electronic text in an area other than the area where the pop-up window is inserted.

  If the pop-up window is fixed, the window size is unnecessarily large relative to the data size of the related information, or the scroll range becomes larger than necessary. According to the above pop-up display processing, it is possible to display a pop-up window having a size optimal for the resource.

  FIG. 9 is a schematic diagram showing a state in which a pop-up window is displayed with a size corresponding to the resource type. In this example, a pop-up window 220a having a size of two lines is inserted immediately below the designated character string (English) 21a, and related information drawn in the English-Japanese dictionary as a translation (Japanese) of the designated character string 21a is displayed in the pop-up window 220a. It is displayed in. Further, a pop-up window 220b having a size of five lines is inserted immediately below the designated character string (Japanese) 21b, and related information of the designated character string 21b acquired from the encyclopedia is displayed in the pop-up window 220b. In this way, by displaying the pop-up window with the optimal size for the resource, it is possible to solve the problem that the window size is uselessly larger than the data size of the related information and the scroll range becomes larger than necessary. it can.

  In the above description, the display conditions are set such that the window display position and the character size are the same and only the window size is different in each resource. However, the present invention is not limited to this. An optimal window display position and optimal character size may be set for each resource.

  When setting the optimal window display position for each resource, for example, for English-Japanese dictionaries, a pop-up window is inserted in the upper right position of the text display area, and for encyclopedias, the bottom position of the text display area is inserted. Display processing such as inserting a pop-up window becomes possible.

  When setting the optimal character size for each resource, for resources with large data size of related information (for example, newspaper articles), reducing the character size increases the amount of information displayed in the window at one time. It is also possible to reduce the scroll range.

  The information processing apparatus of each embodiment described above is an example of the present invention, and the configuration and operation thereof can be changed as appropriate without departing from the spirit of the invention.

  For example, in each embodiment, the pop-up window may be provided with a button for terminating the pop-up display. When the cursor is placed on this button and a predetermined input operation (for example, a click operation with a mouse) is performed, the control unit executes a process for terminating the pop-up display. The user can freely end the pop-up display.

  In each embodiment, a scroll button may be provided in a window that displays text. In this case, when the text display is moved up and down by the scroll button, the pop-up window displayed adjacent to the designated character string also moves up and down in synchronization with the scrolling movement.

  In the second embodiment, the size of the pop-up window is changed according to the data size of the related information. However, the display position and the character size of the pop-up window are changed according to the data size of the related information. Also good.

  In addition, for each of a plurality of different designated character strings, when acquiring related information from the corresponding resource individually and displaying the acquired related information in separate pop-up windows, multiple pop-up windows are placed adjacent to each other. It may be inserted.

  FIG. 10 shows an example in which two pop-up windows are inserted adjacent to each other. In this example, a pop-up window 322a having a size of 6 lines and a pop-up window 322b having a size of 8 lines are displayed adjacent to the upper right area of the text display window. The translated text of the designated character string (English) 321a is displayed in the pop-up window 322a, and the meaning of the designated character string (Japanese) 321b is displayed in the pop-up window 322b. The original text (designated character string (English) 321a itself) is also displayed in the pop-up window 322a.

  FIG. 11 shows another example in which two pop-up windows are inserted adjacent to each other. In this example, a pop-up window 422a having a size of eight lines and a pop-up window 422b having a size of five lines are displayed adjacent to the lowermost position of the text display window. Newspaper articles relating to the designated character string 421a are displayed in the pop-up window 422a. For the designated character string 421b, a pop-up menu is displayed in the pop-up window 322b in order to make the user select a resource. The pop-up menu includes items for English-Japanese dictionary, English-English dictionary, encyclopedia, translation, and newspaper article resources. When the cursor is placed on any item displayed as a pop-up menu and a predetermined input operation (for example, a click operation with a mouse) is performed, the control unit executes processing corresponding to the item designated by the cursor. The user can freely select a pop-up menu.

  According to one aspect of the present invention, an information processing apparatus includes an input unit, a display unit, a browser unit that displays electronic text on the display unit, and a window that displays a subwindow in a window on which the electronic text is displayed. A display processing unit, wherein the window display processing unit detects a display position of the character string designated through the input unit in the window, inserts the sub-window in an area adjacent to the display position, and the browser When the subwindow is inserted, the section displays the electronic text in an area other than the insertion area. Here, the window display processing unit corresponds to the pop-up display processing unit 11b shown in FIG. 1, and the sub-window corresponds to the pop-up window.

  The information processing apparatus further includes an information search unit that searches for related information from a data group using a character string designated through the input unit as a search keyword, and the window display processing unit stores the related information You may display on the said subwindow.
