Abstract

This article describes a method for immediately accessing calendar event text that cannot be seen on the screen at a given time. Assume that a user has an electronic calendar that shows all of his/her daily events, and also shows when the user has free time and busy time for that day. Refer to Fig. 1 while reading the following brief description of the panel. o The Free Time / Busy Time Area (Image Omitted) oThe left side of the panel is the area that shows when the user has free time and busy time. Each line represents a range of time. If the range of time is 30 minutes, then each line represents 30 minutes of time. So, the 9:00am line represents time from 9:00am to 9:30am.
