Abstract

PURPOSE:To efficiently select a command, by two-dimensionally displaying commands to a processor on a display device. CONSTITUTION:On the screen 8 is display device 2 a list 10 of commands which can be processed by a central processor 1, a cursor 11 indicating a point indicating by an indicator 3, and an inversionally displayed section 12 for distinguishing a command indicated by the indicator 3 from other commands are displayed. The command list 10 is displayed near the cursor 11 at that time in accordance with an instruction from the coordinate inputting device 3, keyboard 4, etc. By displaying othe command list 10 at both sides of the cursor 11, the moving distance of the cursor 11 at the time of command selection can be shortened and, moreover, when the list 10 is displayed at not only both sides but also top and bottom sides of the cursor 11, various commands can be displayed by dividing them into groups and selected efficiently.

Conventionally, in a system as shown in FIG. 1, a display device 2 displays commands that can be processed by a central processing unit 1.
The commands displayed above as shown in FIG. 2 and lined up in the - column were instructed by the instruction device 3, and the commands could be input into the central processing unit 1. In Figure 1, 4
In FIG. 2, 5 is the screen of the display device 2, 6 is a list of commands that can be processed by the central processing unit 1, and 7 is a keyboard.
8 is a command indicated by the pointing device (distinguished from others by displaying it in reverse), and 8 is a cursor indicating the point displayed by the pointing device. Conventionally, as shown in Fig. 2, a command list 6 is displayed near the point indicated by the cursor 80.
When displaying one-dimensionally, if the command list 6 becomes long, the cursor 8 must be moved by moving the pointing device 3 a long distance to the point that was focused on before inputting the command. It was extremely inefficient. Another drawback is that the commands are lined up in a row and cannot be categorized, making it inconvenient to search for a desired command.

, 9 is the screen of the display device 2, 10 is a list of commands that can be processed by the central processing unit 1, 11 is a cursor that indicates the point indicated by the indicating device 3, and 12 is the point indicated by the indicating device 1. In order to distinguish it from other commands, the command is displayed in reverse video to indicate that it is being instructed.Command list 10 shows the instructions from the coordinate input device 3 or the keyboard 4, etc. at that time. cursor 1
Displayed near 1. As shown in Figure 6, by displaying the command list 10 on both sides of the cursor 11, the distance the cursor moves when selecting a command is shortened, and by providing it not only at both ends but also above and below, many commands can be grouped together. This allows for efficient selection.
