Description

  The present invention relates to an information processing apparatus, an information processing apparatus control method, and a program for displaying a hierarchy using an address bar in a multi-level navigation system.

  In recent years, the application of Web has progressed, and the improvement of functions for the purpose of improving usability tends to be different from the conventional one. For example, in a multi-level navigation system, there is a need for a method for moving a hierarchy more easily in one navigation system than a conventional method of operating a plurality of levels using a plurality of navigation systems simultaneously. .

  As an example, the prior art has a menu system that can display items on one layer at the same time and move directly to not only one layer above, but also to a layer above one layer in parallel. (See Patent Document 1). As a result, it is possible to move between hierarchies, which conventionally required two steps, in one step, thereby improving operability. In addition, there is a technique in which each hierarchy displayed in the address bar is converted into a button to facilitate direct movement to an upper hierarchy or movement to a child hierarchy of each hierarchy.

JP-A-9-214905

  However, in the prior art, since the area for displaying the address bar and menu is limited, if the user moves to a deeper level, the display is omitted from the higher level. In addition, when the name of each layer becomes long, even if it is a shallow layer, the upper layer is omitted and displayed immediately. Therefore, there is a problem that a desired operation target hierarchy is omitted and cannot be directly operated.

  In the present invention, in view of the above problems, it is possible to always display a desired hierarchy in the address bar, and even when the operation is performed in a deep hierarchy or a hierarchy with a long name, the user of the desired hierarchy directly An object of the present invention is to provide an information processing apparatus that can be operated.

  In order to solve the above problems, an information processing apparatus according to the present invention displays content included in a current hierarchy designated from a plurality of managed hierarchies in a content display area, and An information processing apparatus for displaying each hierarchy from the highest hierarchy to the current hierarchy on an address bar, an instruction means for receiving from a user a fixed instruction for fixing display of an arbitrary hierarchy in the address bar, and the address bar Omission means for omitting display of at least one of the upper layers of the current layer when a plurality of layers included from the highest layer to the current layer does not fit in the display area of The means does not omit the display of the hierarchy instructed to be fixed by the instruction means.

  According to the present invention, the user can always display the desired hierarchy in the address bar, and directly operate the desired hierarchy even when the operation is performed in a deep hierarchy or a hierarchy with a long name. be able to.

  The best mode for carrying out the present invention will be described below with reference to the drawings.

<Overview>
The navigation system provided by the information processing apparatus according to the present embodiment fixes a specific hierarchy on the address bar and continues to display it.

<System configuration>
FIG. 1 is a diagram showing a configuration of a navigation system provided by an information processing apparatus applied to this embodiment. This system is provided to an information processing apparatus such as a PC including a CPU, RAM, ROM, HDD, and the like. In the procedure shown in the flowchart described later, the CPU of the information processing apparatus executes a control program stored in any of the storage means of the RAM, ROM, or HDD of the information processing apparatus, and configures each configuration of the navigation system 1000. It is executed by controlling.

  The user operation input unit 1001 receives input from the user through the UI, and notifies the address bar control unit 1002 of the contents of the user operation. The address bar control unit 1002 notifies the address bar creation unit 1003 of the address bar to be created based on the user operation received from the user operation input unit 1001. The address bar control unit 1002 displays the completed address bar to the user through the address bar display control unit 1006.

  The address bar creation unit 1003 generates an address bar based on information from the display target hierarchy DB control unit 1004 in accordance with an instruction from the address bar control unit 1002. The display target hierarchy DB control unit 1004 exchanges information with the display target hierarchy database 1005 and inputs / outputs information on the hierarchy fixed to the address bar.

  The display target hierarchy database 1005 stores / provides hierarchy information to be fixed to the address bar in accordance with an instruction from the display target hierarchy DB control unit 1004. The address bar display control unit 1006 displays the address bar created by the address bar creation unit 1003 on the user interface of the information processing apparatus in accordance with an instruction from the address bar control unit 1002.

<Configuration of navigation system>
The mechanism of a general navigation system will be described with reference to FIGS. FIG. 2 shows an example of the appearance of a general navigation system, which is a premise of the present invention.

  A move button 2001 is a button for instructing a move to the layer displayed immediately before. The address bar 2002 is an area for displaying each layer from the upper layer to the current layer among a plurality of layers managed by the navigation system. The address bar 2002 has a function of moving between hierarchies and can be moved to a designated hierarchy. Details of the function of the address bar 2002 will be described with reference to FIGS.

  The tree view display area 2003 is an area for displaying all hierarchical structures in the system using the tree structure. The content display area 2004 is an area for displaying items in the hierarchy selected in the address bar 2002 or the tree view display area 2003.

  FIG. 3 is a diagram showing details of the address bar 2002. The address bar 2000 includes a hierarchy display area 3001 for displaying each hierarchy and a button 3002 for displaying an operation menu for each hierarchy. The hierarchy display area 3001 also has a function as a button. By clicking on the hierarchy display area 3001, the display of the content display area 2004 can be changed to the content of the clicked hierarchy.

  FIG. 4 is a diagram showing details of a button 3002 for displaying a hierarchy operation menu. When a button 3002 is clicked, a list 4001 of child hierarchies of the hierarchy related to the button (hierarchy 2 in FIG. 4) is displayed. The list 4001 also has a function as a button. By clicking an arbitrary item in the child hierarchy list 4001, the display of the content display area 2004 can be changed to the content of the clicked hierarchy.

  FIG. 5 is a diagram showing an abbreviated display of the address bar 2002. The hierarchy to be displayed in the address bar becomes longer as it moves to the lower hierarchy, and when the width of the address bar is exceeded, an ellipsis 5001 is displayed in the address bar, and the display of the hierarchy that cannot be displayed is omitted.

  Next, the flow of processing in the present embodiment will be described.

<Fixed instructions for specific layers>
With reference to FIGS. 6 and 13, a hierarchy instruction method for fixing the display on the address bar in the present embodiment will be described.

  The address bar 6000 is an address bar displayed on the user interface of the information processing apparatus by the navigation system 1000 in this embodiment. In this embodiment, a menu 6001 for instructing fixation is added to a child hierarchy list 4001 displayed by pressing a button 3002 for displaying an operation menu of each hierarchy. In the example of FIG. 6, a menu “fixed” for fixing “hierarchy 2” is added.

  The address bar control unit 1002 receives from the user operation input unit 1001 a fixing instruction for “hierarchy 2” in response to the menu 6001 being pressed via the user interface of the information processing apparatus. The address bar control unit 1002 notifies the display target hierarchy DB control unit 1004 of the received “hierarchy 2” and the fixing instruction through the address bar creation unit 1003.

  Upon receiving the hierarchy fixing instruction, the display target hierarchy DB control unit 1004 stores that “hierarchy 2” is a fixed object in the display target hierarchy database 1005 according to the flow of FIG. In step 13001, the display target hierarchy DB control unit 1004 acquires the folder “hierarchy 2” for which the fixing instruction has been given. In step 13002, the display target hierarchy DB control unit 1004 determines whether the folder instructed to be fixed has already been registered as a folder to be fixed. If it is determined that the folder has already been registered as a fixed target, the display target hierarchy DB control unit 1004 does nothing and ends the registration process. If it is determined that the folder has not been registered as a fixed target, in step 13003, the display target hierarchy DB control unit 1004 registers “hierarchy 2” in the display target hierarchy database 1005 as a fixed target folder.

<Display of fixed hierarchy>
With reference to FIGS. 7 and 8, the address bar hierarchy fixing method in the present embodiment will be described. An address bar 7000 is an address bar in the navigation system 1000, and is displayed when a lower hierarchy, “hierarchy 5” and “hierarchy 6” are moved after a specific hierarchy fixing instruction is given in the address bar 6000. is there.

  When the navigation system 1000 is instructed to move a hierarchy, the address bar creation unit 1003 generates an address bar to be displayed according to the flowchart of FIG.

  In step 8001, the address bar creation unit 1003 acquires the folder name of the destination hierarchy based on the instruction to move the hierarchy. For example, when an instruction to move to “hierarchy 6” is given, the folder name “hierarchy 6” is acquired.

  In step 8002, the address bar creation unit 1003 adds the folder name acquired in step 8001 to the address bar display. In step 8003, the address bar creation unit 1003 determines whether the generated address bar fits in the display area of the address bar due to the addition of the folder name. When it is determined that the address bar is displayed in the display area of the address bar, the generated address bar is notified to the address bar display control unit 1006 through the address bar control unit 1002, and is controlled to be displayed on the user interface of the information processing apparatus. On the other hand, if it is determined that it does not fit in the display area of the address bar, the process proceeds to step 8004.

  From step 8004 to step 8007, repeated hierarchy omission processing is performed from the highest level until the address bar display fits in the display area. In step 8004, the address bar creation unit 1003 acquires the highest hierarchy as the processing target hierarchy. In step 8005, the address bar creation unit 1003 determines whether the processing target hierarchy is a hierarchy instructed to be fixed. Here, if it is determined that the hierarchy is a fixed instruction, the process proceeds to step 8007, and if it is determined that the hierarchy is not a fixed instruction, the process proceeds to step 8006.

  In step 8006, the address bar creation unit 1003 deletes the display of the folder name of the processing target hierarchy from the display of the address bar, and omits the display of the hierarchy. In step 8007, address bar creation unit 1003 repeats the processing from step 8004 until it fits in the address bar display area. If the address bar is received, the address bar creation unit 1003 notifies the address bar display control unit 1006 of the generated address bar through the address bar control unit 1002 and controls the display to be displayed on the user interface of the information processing apparatus.

  For example, in an example in which the hierarchy is “hierarchy 1—hierarchy 2—hierarchy 3—hierarchy 4—hierarchy 6” and hierarchy 2 is fixed, in step 8004, hierarchy 1 that is the highest hierarchy is processed. Acquired as a hierarchy. Since layer 1 is not instructed to be fixed, display in the address bar is omitted. Next, the hierarchy 2 is acquired as the processing target hierarchy, but the hierarchy 2 is displayed as it is because the fixed instruction is given. Next, the hierarchy 3 and the hierarchy 4 are sequentially acquired as the processing target hierarchy, and are omitted as in the hierarchy 1. Here, it is determined in step 8007 that the area fits in the display area of the address bar, and the generated address bar is displayed on the user interface. In FIG. 7, an address bar is used in which the display of the hierarchy 1 is omitted with the ellipsis 7001 of the upper layer, and the display of the hierarchy 3 and hierarchy 4 is omitted with the ellipsis 7002 of the intermediate layer.

  In step 8004, the highest level of all the levels may not be acquired, but the highest level of the levels currently displayed in the address bar may be acquired.

  When similar hierarchical movement is performed with the existing technology, the state is omitted as shown in FIG. In this state, if the user wants to move to the child hierarchy “hierarchy 3-1” of the hierarchy 2, click the ellipses 9001 in the address bar to display “hierarchy 2”, and then click the child hierarchy list 4001 of the hierarchy Then, the user has to move to “hierarchy 3-1.”

  On the other hand, according to the present embodiment, since “hierarchy 2” is fixed, it is possible to directly open the child hierarchy list 6001 of the hierarchy of “hierarchy 2” even when “hierarchy 6” is displayed. , It is possible to reduce the load required to move to a desired hierarchy.

<Overview>
In the navigation system according to the present embodiment, when a hierarchy for fixing the display is designated in the first embodiment, if there is a hierarchy that has already been fixed in the upper level, the higher level is fixed. Since the system configuration is the same as that of the first embodiment, description thereof is omitted. Also, in the description of the processing, the same processing as in the first embodiment is denoted by the same numbering and the description is omitted.

<Display of fixed hierarchy>
The address bar hierarchy fixed display method according to the present embodiment will be described with reference to FIGS. FIG. 11 is a flowchart of address bar generation processing in this embodiment. Only steps 11001 and 11002 which are different from FIG. 8 will be described.

  If it is determined in step 8005 that the hierarchy is instructed to be fixed, the process proceeds to step 11001. In step 11001, the address bar creation unit 1003 determines whether there is a hierarchy instructed to be fixed above the processing target hierarchy. If it is determined that there is a hierarchy instructed to be fixed above, the process proceeds to step 11002. If it is determined that there is no hierarchy instructed to be fixed above, the process proceeds to step 8007.

  In step 11002, the address bar creation unit 1003 deletes the display of the folder name of the higher-order fixed hierarchy from the display of the address bar, and omits the display of the hierarchy.

  By performing the above processing, after the hierarchy 5 is fixed in the address bar of FIG. 10, the hierarchy is moved to the lower hierarchy in order of the hierarchy 7 and the hierarchy 8, so that the address bar as shown in FIG. Will be displayed on the user interface.

  10000 in FIG. 10 is an address bar displayed on the navigation system 1000, and when a fixed display instruction is given to “hierarchy 2” and then moved to a lower hierarchy, “hierarchy 5”, “hierarchy 6” Display. In this situation, the user clicks a menu 10001 for instructing fixation, and instructs to display “tier 5” in a fixed manner. The flow in the case of instructing the fixed display of “hierarchy 5” is the same as the flow of the fixed instruction in the specific hierarchy in the first embodiment. Then, move to “tier 7” and “tier 8”. The address bar 12000 shown in FIG. 12 is displayed by the processing described in FIG. FIG. 12 shows an address bar 12000 in which the display of “hierarchy 2” that has been instructed to be fixed is omitted, and hierarchy 5 is fixedly displayed.

  When similar hierarchical movement is performed with the existing technology, the state is omitted as shown in FIG. In this state, if the user wants to move to the child hierarchy “hierarchy 3-1” of the hierarchy 2, click the ellipses 9001 in the address bar to display “hierarchy 2”, and then click the child hierarchy list 4001 of the hierarchy Then, the user has to move to “hierarchy 3-1.”

  According to the present embodiment, even if a plurality of hierarchies “hierarchy 2” and “hierarchy 5” are fixed, only “hierarchy 5” closer to the current hierarchy can be fixedly displayed, and a limited address bar can be displayed. Only the hierarchy necessary for the user can be displayed in the display area.

  As mentioned above, although the specific example was given and demonstrated about the Example of this invention, this invention is not limited to said Example. The present invention can also be realized by executing the following processing. That is, software (program) that realizes the functions of the above-described embodiments is supplied to a system or apparatus via a network or various storage media, and a computer (or CPU, MPU, or the like) of the system or apparatus reads the program. It is a process to be executed. In this case, the program and the storage medium storing the program constitute the present invention.
