X-Windows New Pop-Up Mechanism
Disclosed is a window pop-up that allows the user to view a series of numeric
data by pressing mouse buttons to scan them up or down and make a selection.
In the X-Windows environment, all of menu selections involve pop-up
displays, mouse movement, and mouse selections. However, for the sequential
numeric data, a more efficient display and selection scheme is disclosed here.
Instead of displaying the whole set of numeric data in a pop-up for the user to
select, only a single value is displayed at a time. With the mouse pointing at the
pop-up, the user may click the left mouse button to display the lower value or
click the right mouse button to display the higher value of the current one. The
user may also click the middle mouse button to make a selection. Move the
mouse out of the pop-up at any time will abort the selection.
As a result, a few advantages can be drawn from the scheme as
1. It creates only one simple window instead of a spectrum windows.
Therefore, it increases performance and reduces screen overhead.
2. The first value displayed in the pop-up is always the current
value. Therefore, the user can view it as an informative pop-up.
3. No mouse movement involved in the data selection.
4. Very efficient for small amount of data display, e.g. 0 - 8 for
the keyboard click volume, 0 - 7 for the bell volume, etc.
