Also, the step of displaying the message of the user according to the input / output environment setting on the receiving side of the message may include searching the audio data corresponding to the input / output environment setting received at the receiving side of the message, And outputting it together with the output signal.
Hereinafter, a method for controlling an instant messenger service of a mobile communication terminal according to an embodiment of the present invention will be described in detail with reference to the accompanying drawings. In the following description of the present invention, detailed description of known functions and configurations incorporated herein will be omitted when it may make the subject matter of the present invention rather unclear.
FIG. 1 is a block diagram of a mobile communication system for providing an instant messenger (hereinafter, referred to as IM) service, and illustrates a dialog window displayed when a conversation is performed between users using an IM service.
The IM server 5 is a server capable of providing a known instant message service such as MSN, IRC, and ICQ. The IM server 5 divides users into user identifiers and manages the statuses of the users, the reception mode, the contact list and the user environment information , And transmits a message between the connected users. The IM server 5 receives a log-in / log-off signal, a user status information signal, and the like transmitted from the mobile communication terminal and transmits the presence / absence information of the user to the conversation partner in real- presence service.
The user's mobile communication terminal supports the internet connection function through the network 1 and the IM clients 10 and 20 programs are installed for connection with the IM server 5 providing the IM service. The IM clients 10 and 20 are software having a function of notifying the user of the fact that a friend registered by the user logs on to the network 1 and allowing the user to exchange messages with each other, Provide a user interface.
Accordingly, when the user requests a conversation to a predetermined party who is logged in to the IM service, the IM client 10, 20 displays a dialog window 100, 200 for conversation between them. The conversation windows 100 and 200 are provided with message input units 112 and 212 for inputting a text type message and message display units 110 and 210 for displaying conversation contents between the two. Here, when the user of the IM client 1 10 inputs a message to the message input unit 112 and selects "send", the corresponding message is displayed on the message display unit 110 of the user and the IM client 2 (20) And is also displayed on the message display unit 210 so that conversation between them is possible.
Here, in the instant messenger service control method of the present mobile communication terminal, the IM clients 10 and 20 provide a "mood" function for setting emotion or other status information through an "option" menu, Color, font, etc. of the text displayed on the counterpart message display units 110 and 210 according to the status information, that is, the "mood ", automatically matches the emoticon appropriate to the mood Can be transmitted. The IM clients 10 and 20 on the other side receive the mood information set by the user on the other side so that the IM clients 10 and 20 receive the mood information from the color, design, and message display units 110 and 210 of the dialog windows 100 and 200 The background screen and the like can be changed in accordance with the "mood" setting of the transmitting side user.
Various types of electronic devices capable of accessing the Internet, such as mobile phones, PDAs, and PMPs, may be applied to the mobile communication terminals on which the IM clients 10 and 20 are installed.
2 is a flowchart illustrating a method of controlling an instant messenger service of a mobile communication terminal according to the present invention.
The user of the IM client 1 10 executes the dialog window 100 with the user of the IM client 2 20, which is the other party who wants to communicate by selecting from the friend list or directly inputting the address (S10) S12).
When the user of the IM client 2 (20) receiving the conversation request accepts the conversation request, the IM client 2 (20) displays the conversation window 200 (S14) 1 (10) side (S16).
Both users can set a mood function to set status information such as emotion through a predetermined menu such as "option" on the respective IM clients 10 and 20. Here, the mood function is to display the receiving user interface (UI) with a consistent mood according to the mood set by the transmitting user when using the instant messenger service.
When the user of the IM client 1 10 sets a mood function (S18) and inputs a message to be transmitted (S20). The IM client 1 10 automatically changes the message display type according to the selected mood (S22). Here, the IM client 1 10 may change the size, color, font, etc. of the text of the message input by the user or attach an emoticon or the like.
The IM client 1 (10) transmits the changed display format message and the mood information set by the user to the IM client 2 (20) according to the mood (S24).
The IM client 2 20 searches the image corresponding to the received mood information at step S26 and displays the retrieved image together with the received message in the message display unit 210 of the dialog window 200 at step S28, . Here, the IM client 2 (20) displays the image corresponding to the mood information transmitted by the IM client 1 (10) as the background screen of the message display unit 210, or changes the skin of the dialog window 200 . In addition, if audio information corresponding to the mood information exists, it is also possible to provide music, sound effects, and the like together.
FIG. 3 is a diagram illustrating a display state of an instant messenger service screen according to an exemplary embodiment of the present invention. When a user of the IM client 1 10 sets a mood function and transmits a message to the IM client 2 20, State.
When the user enters a menu such as an option for the setting of the mood function, the IM client 1 (10) Jealous, 2. Angry, 3. In Love ... 'and so on. The mood function is displayed so that the receiving user interface (UI) has a consistent mood according to the mood set by the transmitting user when using the instant messenger service. 3, the user of the IM client 1 10 sends a message "2. Angry 'is selected. This mood function setting can be set when the IM service is executed, and can be set or changed during a conversation with a predetermined counterpart.
