20130031482Multi-Touch Remoting - An invention is disclosed for using multi-touch input in a remote presentation session. In embodiments of the invention, a client computer is configured to locally receive both mouse and keyboard input, and multi-touch input. Where the client computer receives mouse or keyboard input, it sends this input to a remote presentation session server via a TCP connection. Where the client computer receives multi-touch input, it sends this input to the remote presentation session server via a UDP connection. The server computer processes input received from the client computer, via either the TCP or UDP connection, and sends the client a graphical result of performing processing corresponding to that received input.01-31-2013
20090150793Multidimensional Web Page Ruler - A method, system and computer-usable medium are disclosed for managing the spatial coordinates and visual attributes of objects within a user interface (UI). A Web UI ruler is executed within a UI comprising a plurality of objects. A first object and second object are selected.
