Hereinafter, preferred embodiments according to the present invention will be described in detail with reference to the accompanying drawings.

1 illustrates a concept of a method for moving content between applications and an apparatus for executing the same according to the present invention.

In the embodiment of Figure 1, even if one or more applications are running in the portable terminal, it is common to have one application displayed on the screen and provided to the user. This is the case.

Therefore, in this case, when it is desired to check the execution state of another application in addition to the application currently displayed on the screen, the screen switching should be performed by stopping the display of the current application and displaying the screen for the other application.

However, the present invention divides the screen into two areas when the user selects an application from the menu bar (101) while the window of one application is displayed on the current screen as shown in FIG. Before selecting an application for screen division on one area, a window of the application that was originally displayed is displayed, and a window of the application selected by the user on the menu bar is displayed on the other area (102).

Meanwhile, the term “menu bar” used in the present specification refers to a bar that is located below the screen of the portable terminal and displays a plurality of types of applications that are currently running and running on different processes in the portable terminal.

In addition, when moving or copying the contents of an application currently displayed on the screen to another application, temporarily save the contents of the current application, stop displaying the application's window, and display the other application's window temporarily. Should be pasted.

However, the present invention displays the window of the source application and the window of the target application on the screen, drags the content contained in the window of the source application to the clipboard of the virtual space, and drops from the clipboard of the virtual space ( You can solve this problem by temporarily saving the contents to the clipboard in the virtual space and moving the contents copied to the clipboard in the virtual space to the target application.

Here, the original application before moving the content is called a source application, and the application to which the content is moved is called a target application. The source application and the target application may be applications that perform different functions from each other. According to one embodiment, the source application is a web application that includes information received over a network and the target application may be a local application that runs using information in the device, and vice versa.

For example, when a contact of a friend in an address book in a terminal device is to be sent to an acquaintance through web mail, the contact information to be sent from the address book is transferred to the web mail application by dragging and dropping and inputting the contents. You can easily share information without any effort.

As used herein, the term “drag” refers to the act of touching and moving content included in a window of a source application on a touch screen using a finger, and “drop” refers to a touch when dragging from a clipboard in a virtual space. The action of lifting a finger off the touch screen.

Meanwhile, when the content of the source application is dragged and moved to the clipboard in the virtual space, the size of the clipboard is enlarged by the size of the content, and the content is temporarily stored by dropping from the clipboard of the virtual space enlarged by the size of the content. If the clipboard temporarily stored content is moved to the target application, the size of the clipboard in the virtual space is reduced to its original size.

In FIG. 1, when a source application and a target application are partially overlapped with each other and displayed on a screen adjacent to each other, and a touch input for activating one of the soft application and the target application is received, the window of the activated application and the target application are displayed. Identifies and displays windows of disabled applications. In FIG. 1, although the ratio of the source application and the target application is 1: 1, the areas of the two regions are shown in the same form, but the embodiment of the present invention is not limited thereto, and the ratio of the two regions may be different.

In addition, in FIG. 1, the source application is disposed on the left side in the landscape mode, and the target application is disposed on the right side. However, when the content of the application disposed on the right is moved to the application disposed on the left side, the application disposed on the right side is the source application. The application can be, and the application placed on the left becomes the target application. Next, the internal structure of the terminal device using the method for moving content between applications according to an embodiment of the present invention will be described in more detail with reference to FIG. 2.

2 illustrates an internal structure of a terminal device using a method for moving content between applications according to an embodiment of the present invention.

The terminal device may include a touch screen 201, a touch input processor 203, a controller 205, a storage 207, a microphone 209, and a speaker 211.

Terminal device according to an embodiment of the present invention including such a component will be a portable terminal device, more specifically, a mobile communication terminal smartphone, PDA, PMP and the like. According to a preferred embodiment, the terminal device of the present invention uses Android (or Google Android) as its operating system.

Looking at the detailed block of the terminal device of the present invention, first, the touch screen 310 detects a touch input input by the user and provides it to the touch input processor 320. When the touch input is provided in two dimensions such as a rectangle, a circle, or a line, the touch screen 201 may input a coordinate value for a predetermined position of a touched trajectory at predetermined time intervals (for example, 20 ms). 203 may be provided.

That is, the touch screen 201 detects a touch input for screen division or a touch input for content selection on a window for a source application.

In this case, the touch screen may use any one of a contact capacitive method, an infrared light sensing method, a surface ultrasonic method, a piezoelectric method, and a resistive film method. You may. The value detected by the touch screen is in the form of a potential difference, a capacitance, a wavelength, or an IR optical interrupt for at least one touch input depending on the touch detection method.

For example, when a resistive film is used for the touch screen 201, when a touch input is generated in a predetermined area of the touch screen 201 by the user, the touch screen 201 detects and detects a potential difference at the touched position. Based on the potential difference, the coordinate values (X, Y) of the touched position in the display area of the touch screen 201 are provided to the touch input processing unit 203.

The touch screen 201 also displays a graphical user interface screen such as a menu of the terminal device or an execution screen of an application program executed in the terminal device based on the control of the controller 205.

If the coordinate values (X, Y) are provided from the touch screen 201 at predetermined time intervals, the touch input processing unit 203 determines whether the touch input for screen division or touch input for content selection is performed based on the coordinate values (X, Y). .

First, when the coordinate value of the touch position received from the touch screen 201 indicates an application on a menu bar that displays the types of a plurality of applications that are driven and executed on different processes in the terminal device, The detected touch input is determined to be a touch for splitting the screen, and the result is transmitted to the controller 205.

On the other hand, when the coordinate value of the touch position received from the touch screen 201 indicates the content on the window for the source application, the touch input processing unit 203 touch input for selecting the content on the window for the source application. And the result is transmitted to the control unit 205.

First, when the touch input processing unit 203 determines that the touch input is an input for splitting the screen, the controller 205 divides the screen into two areas and displays a window of an application that was originally displayed on one of the areas. In the other area, the window of the application selected in the menu bar is displayed.

When the touch input processing unit 203 determines that the touch input is a touch input for selecting content on a window for the source application, the controller 205 displays a clipboard of a virtual space for movement and drags the selected content. After storing to the clipboard of the virtual space by the end-drop operation, the stored content is moved to the target application. Here, moving the content means moving not only the content according to the content type but also actual data included in the content. For example, when the content is an address book, contact information included in the address book is also moved.

Here, the original application before moving the content is called a source application, and the application to which the content is moved is called a target application. The source application and the target application may be applications that perform different functions from each other. According to one embodiment, the source application is a web application that includes information received over a network and the target application may be a local application that runs using information in the device, and vice versa.

The controller 205 expands and displays the size of the clipboard of the virtual space according to the size of the content when the content exists for a time greater than or equal to a threshold on the clipboard of the virtual space. After the content temporarily stored in the clipboard in the virtual space is moved to the target application, the controller 205 displays the size of the clipboard in the virtual space by reducing it to its original size.

Meanwhile, although the touch input processing unit 203 and the control unit 205 are illustrated as separate blocks in FIG. 2, the touch input processing unit 203 may be implemented as one block together with the control unit 205.

The storage unit 207 may be configured as a nonvolatile memory such as a flash memory, an electrically erasable and programmable read only memory (EEPROM), or the like, and may be stored in a program form that can be read and executed by the controller 205. have.

The microphone 209 converts a user's and / or a user's ambient sound into an electrical signal form and outputs the converted electrical signal to the controller 205. The speaker 211 receives an electrical signal from the controller 205 and converts the electrical signal into a sound and outputs the sound.

2 illustrates an example of a terminal device in which a whole user input unit is configured as a touch screen. According to another embodiment of the present invention, a terminal device includes a touch screen on a key-pad. The apparatus may further include a key input unit configured to receive a key input, convert the key input into a form of a key code corresponding to the key input, and output the converted key code to the controller 205.

The terminal device according to another embodiment of the present invention also includes a CMOS image sensor or a CCD image sensor, which converts the captured image image into a form of displayable image data through image processing, and outputs it to the control unit 205. It may further include a camera module unit. Next, an operation flow of a method for moving content between applications according to an embodiment of the present invention will be described in more detail with reference to FIG. 3.

3 illustrates an operation flow of a method for moving content between applications according to an embodiment of the present invention.

When the terminal device receives the touch input for splitting the screen (S300), the terminal device displays the source application and the target application that are simultaneously executed on the screen divided into two (S302). On the other hand, if the terminal device does not receive a touch input for splitting the screen, the terminal device displays an application currently being displayed on the entire screen (S301).

When the terminal device detects a touch input for selecting a content on a window for the source application (S303), the terminal device displays a clipboard of a virtual space for moving the content (S304). On the other hand, if the terminal device does not detect a touch input for selecting a content on the window for the source application, the source application and the target application are continuously displayed on two divided screens (S302).

The terminal device stores the content in the clipboard of the virtual space according to the movement of the virtual space to the clipboard by dragging and dropping the selected content, and moves the stored content to the target application (S305). In this case, the drag and drop operation may be represented as a copy and paste operation, and the operation of selecting other content and placing the content on another application is not limited to the user input operation and the processing method of the input operation.

Although not shown in FIG. 3, the terminal device enlarges the size of the clipboard in the virtual space according to the size of the content and temporarily stores the content in the clipboard of the virtual space. The terminal device moves the content temporarily stored in the clipboard in the virtual space to the target application, and then reduces the size of the clipboard in the virtual space to its original size. Next, the internal structure of the terminal device performing the display using the method of moving content between applications according to an embodiment of the present invention will be described in more detail with reference to FIG. 4.

4 illustrates an embodiment of a terminal device that performs display using a method of moving content between applications according to an embodiment of the present invention.

In FIG. 4, when content included in a window of an application arranged on the left side is selected for movement, a clipboard of a virtual space is created and displayed on the screen, and the selected content is temporarily moved to a clipboard of the virtual space. This is an example of a case where an application disposed on the left becomes a source application and an application disposed on the right becomes a target application because it is a case where it is moved to a window of an application disposed on the right side after being stored.

In addition, the position where the clipboard of the virtual space is generated is not limited, and FIG. 4 is an exemplary view of the case where the clipboard is generated on the action bar of the application. At this time, the size of the clipboard in the virtual space is enlarged according to the size of the content and then stored in the content, and is reduced to the size before the content is enlarged after being moved to the target application.

In addition, the window of the source application and the window of the target application are displayed on the touch screen by partially overlapping at adjacent boundaries. When a touch input is received on the window for the source application, the window of the source application is activated and displayed on the touchscreen above the window of the target application, and when the touch input is received on the window for the target application, the target The window of the application is activated and displayed on the touchscreen above the window of the source application.

Referring to FIG. 4, when a drag and drop input is received from a user on a touch screen, the terminal device selects content included in a window of a source application corresponding to a drag start time (401) and a virtual space corresponding to a drop point. Go to the clipboard (402). At this time, if the content is maintained by the threshold time in the clipboard of the virtual space, the clipboard of the virtual space is enlarged by the size of the content (403).

The terminal device temporarily stores the content in the clipboard of the virtual space enlarged by the size of the content (404). After moving the content temporarily stored in the clipboard of the virtual space to the window of the target application, the terminal device reduces the size of the clipboard of the virtual space to the size before the content is temporarily stored (405).
