In other words, mobile terminals are evolving to display various types of user data. In order to use various types of user data as described above, it is common to change and select key behavior in a user interface.

Techniques for changing key behavior without modifying the source code with respect to key behavior techniques can be seen through Qualcomm, Inc.'s "TrigML" interface customization technology. And

This can be done and described in <Table 1> below.

<trigml> <layer id = "layer1"> <group> <image res = "icon / bullet"> <load when = "keypress [select]? BR /> Res =" news / headlines / $$ / more? BR /> target = "layer2" /> </ image> </ group> </ layer> <layer id = "layer2" /> </ trigml>

Table 1 shows an example of reading a new page when the select button is pressed on the wallet icon. In TrigML, "When" attribute can be set to operate when an event occurs, and key event can be set here.

Conventional user interface libraries, such as the above example, delivers the key events received from the platform to the user interface component, and receives them to perform an operation such as executing an application or switching screens according to the implementation of the component or the implementation on the source code of the application. do. However, this method has a problem in that the source code must be modified whenever the operation on the key event is changed.

Accordingly, an object of the present invention is to describe the behavior of a key event in a resource in a user interface library of a mobile terminal so that a key behavior item can be set to a corresponding component when loading a resource. It is to provide a setting method and apparatus.

In this case, if the determination result does not have the corresponding key movement item, the method further includes performing a general user interface processing operation.

In the setting, the key movement item data may include information such as a key event type, a motion description, and the like. In the setting, the resource may include application data, window data, Component data, key movement item data, and in the setting step, each component has at least one key movement item, and in the detecting step, the key event is delivered to the component having the current focus. desirable.

In addition, the apparatus according to the embodiment of the present invention, a flexible key movement setting device in the user interface library, the key movement setting unit for reading the key movement item data recorded in the resource to set the key movement items of each component; A key event generation detector for detecting a key event occurrence on a predetermined component of the user interface; A key movement possession checking unit for determining whether the predetermined component has a corresponding key movement item; An application execution unit that executes the corresponding application according to the contents described in the key movement item if the determination result has the corresponding key movement item; And a controller for controlling each of the blocks to operate in harmony with other functional blocks as a whole.

In this case, if it is determined that the device does not have a corresponding key movement item, it is preferable to perform a general user interface processing operation.

The key movement item data may include information such as a key event type, a motion description, and the like, and the resource may include application data, window data, component data, and key movement item data, and each of the components may include at least one key movement. Having an item, the key event is preferably delivered to the component that currently has focus.

In addition, the recording medium according to an embodiment of the present invention, the program of instructions that can be executed in the mobile terminal to set the flexible key behavior (key behavior) in the user interface library is tangibly implemented, by the mobile terminal A recording medium for recording a program that can be read, wherein the corresponding key behavior item data recorded in a resource is read to set a key behavior item of each component, and a predetermined type of the user interface is read. Detecting occurrence of a key event in a component, determining whether the predetermined component has a corresponding key behavior item, and if determined to have the corresponding key behavior item, determining the key behavior The program that executes the application according to the content described in the item It is characterized by.

Hereinafter, the operation principle of the preferred embodiment of the present invention will be described in detail with reference to the accompanying drawings. Like reference numerals refer to the same elements as shown in the drawings, even though they may be shown on different drawings, and in the following description, detailed descriptions of related well-known functions or configurations are not required in the following description. If it is determined that it can be blurred, the detailed description thereof will be omitted. Terms to be described later are terms defined in consideration of functions in the present invention, and may be changed according to intentions or customs of users or operators. Therefore, the definition should be made based on the contents throughout the specification.

1 is a diagram illustrating a structure of a flexible key behavior setting method in a user interface library of a mobile terminal according to an embodiment of the present invention.

Referring to FIG. 1, a user interface of a mobile terminal includes at least one window 110 corresponding to an application 100, and each window 110 includes at least one component 120 necessary for configuring a window. Each component 120 is configured to include at least one key behavior item 130.

The resource 150 may also include key behavior item data 190, including application data 160, window data 160, component data 180, key event type and / or motion description information, and the like. It includes.

At this time, an example of the processing operation of the actual key event is as follows. Since the actual processing of the key event is the component 120, all the components provided have the key behavior through the key behavior item 130. Then, the key behavior item data 190 recorded in the resource 150 is read, and the key behavior of the corresponding component is set.

In addition, key events are delivered to the component that currently has focus. The component receiving this key event checks whether it has a key behavior item for the key event and performs normal processing if it does not have it. If it has it, it describes the key behavior item. Depending on the content, the application is executed or an operation such as screen switching is performed. This operation is conceptualized and summarized in FIG. 2.

2 is a diagram illustrating a flexible key behavior setting operation in a user interface library of a mobile terminal according to an embodiment of the present invention.

Referring to FIG. 2, in step 200, the mobile terminal reads the corresponding key behavior item data recorded in the resource and sets a key behavior item of each component. In operation 210, the mobile terminal detects occurrence of a key event in a predetermined component of the user interface. In step 220, the mobile terminal determines whether the predetermined component has a corresponding key behavior item. If the determination result does not have a corresponding key behavior item, in step 230, the mobile terminal performs a general processing operation of the user interface. If it is determined that the key behavior item has a key behavior item, the mobile terminal executes the corresponding application according to the contents described in the key behavior item in step 240.

As described above, an embodiment of the key event processing operation proposed by the present invention will be described with reference to FIGS. 3 and 4.

3 is a diagram illustrating an example of changing a menu form according to an exemplary embodiment of the present invention.

The example of FIG. 3 shows a change in focus movement method of a menu application through key behavior. The left user interface has a grid of menu icons, and the mail user interface has a heart with menu icons. That is, the case of modifying a resource from the left user interface to the postal user interface.

Key behavior is registered in a component that has a menu icon in the resource, so that the focus moves to a specific component according to a direction key. In this case, when the component to change the focus is changed by modifying the resource, the focus movement can be appropriately performed in other types of menu user interfaces.

4 is a diagram illustrating an example of adding a menu item according to an exemplary embodiment of the present invention.

The example of FIG. 4 shows adding key behavior to launch a application by selecting a menu item. That is, as the user interface of the postal area is changed from the user interface on the left side, menu items are added as shown by reference numeral 400.

Here, if the key behavior cannot be set, we added a menu item to the user interface, but had to modify the source code to implement which application to execute when the selection button is pressed on the menu item. However, the behavior of the added menu item can be described using the key behavior of the present invention, so that the menu item can be modified, deleted, and added only by replacing the resource.

Existing user interface libraries deliver key events received from the platform to UI components, and receive them to execute applications and switch screens according to the implementation of the component or the implementation in the source code of the application. This approach is inconvenient to modify the source code every time the behavior for key events is different. As shown in the above example, when the menu application is selected in the menu application, the source code is to be modified when the application is changed or when the menu item needs to be deleted.

However, by describing the behavior of key events in resources instead of implementing them in source code, unnecessary waste of time required for source compilation can be reduced, and flexible key behavior can be set through resource file replacement.

5 is a block diagram of a flexible key behavior setting apparatus in a user interface library of a mobile terminal according to an embodiment of the present invention.

Referring to FIG. 5, a mobile terminal capable of flexible key behavior setting in the user interface library includes a control unit 500, a key movement setting unit 510, a key event occurrence detection unit 520, and a key movement item ownership check. The unit 530 and the application execution unit 540 are included. Each of the blocks can be implemented not only in software but also in hardware in the form of a system on chip.

The control unit 500 may include the key movement setting unit 510, the key event occurrence detecting unit 520, the key movement item possession checking unit 530, and the like to set flexible key behavior in the user interface library of the mobile terminal. The application execution unit 540 is controlled to operate in harmony with other functional blocks of the mobile terminal as a whole.

The key movement setting unit 510 of the mobile terminal reads the corresponding key behavior item data recorded in the resource and sets a key behavior item of each component. The key event generator 520 of the mobile terminal detects the occurrence of a key event in a predetermined component of the user interface when the key event is generated in a predetermined component of the user interface to execute an application required by the user. The key movement possession checking unit 530 of the mobile terminal determines whether the predetermined component has a corresponding key behavior item.

If the determination result does not have a corresponding key behavior item, the application execution unit 540 of the mobile terminal performs a general processing operation of the user interface. If the determination result has a key behavior item, the application execution unit 540 of the mobile terminal executes the relevant application according to the contents described in the key behavior item.

The present invention has been described in detail so far, but the embodiments mentioned in the process are only illustrative, and are not intended to be limiting, and the present invention is provided by the following claims. Within the scope not departing from the scope of the present invention, component changes to the extent that they can be equivalently substituted from the present invention will fall within the scope of the present invention.

In the present invention operating as described in detail above, the effects obtained by the representative ones of the disclosed inventions will be briefly described as follows.

The present invention provides a method for setting a flexible key behavior to allow a user interface library of a mobile terminal to describe an action according to a key event in a resource so that a key behavior item is set to a corresponding component when the resource is loaded. There is an effect that can provide a device.
