Visual Scaling Technique for Scrolling Bars
Provided is a visual and graphic technique for providing scaling information
for scrolling instead of conventional scrolling bars without point of reference
The visual scaling technique can be used with conventional scrolling bars,
other forms of scrolling mechanisms, or as a scrolling technique in its own right.
The visual scale is displayed adjacent to the scroll bar and provides quantitative
point of reference information for end users. The visual scale gives the user an
indicator about how much the "elevator bar" has to be moved in order to achieve
a desired direct navigation effect into the user's data. For example, the scaled
scroll bar could indicate how much the elevator has to be moved to scroll a
certain number of pages into a document or to reach the "M" names in the
address book. There are many other applications of the visually scaled scrolling
The benefits to the end user are reduced worksteps to achieve desired data
navigation results, reduced errors in trying to locate quantitatively specified
scrolling points, and a visual clue about the amount of data or information that
the user is working with.
