20110185301Providing sensory information based on detected events - An electronic device is described. During operation, the electronic device may receive information associated with an event, which was detected by a hooking software program while the information was conveyed to an environment (such as an operating system) of the electronic device. For example, the event may be a user-interface operation, such as a click-drag operation, which may be performed using a mouse (and, more generally, using a user-interface device). Moreover, in response to the received information, the electronic device may provide sensory information via the hooking software program. This sensory information may be other than sensory information associated with native operations executed in the environment during a user session prior to the event. Thus, the electronic device may expand the functionality associated with the environment (without modifying software associated with the environment) and, in particular, the functionality associated with events, such as click-drag operations.07-28-2011

20090113330Method For Predictive Drag and Drop Operation To Improve Accessibility - A method simplified drag and drop operations of display icons. This method calculates a projected path for an icon based on the past movement of the icon. The method highlights the “best fit” target icon as the mouse pointer moves across the screen. As the mouse pointer moves, or changes direction, the “best fit” target icon can change, with the current best-fit icon being highlighted. In addition to highlighting the target icon, a line or arrow from the mouse pointer to the target icon is maintained. The line presents the predicted path in a very noticeable, visual way. As the best-fit target icon changes, the line is re-drawn to point to the current best-fit icon. Regardless of how the target icon is visually indicated, releasing the mouse button will cause the drop operation to be completed “into” target. Completion of the drop could be instantaneous, or could be rendered with animation of some sort to indicate moving from the source to the target.04-30-2009

20130167060ELECTRONIC DEVICE AND FILE MANIPULATION METHOD - An exemplary file manipulation method determines whether the user manipulation on the file or file folder is a moving manipulation. The method then reads a directory structure of each drive from a storage unit when detecting that the user manipulation on the file or file folder is the moving manipulation, determines a maximum folder depth of the directory structure of the one or more drives, and further controls to display a user interface showing the directory structure with the maximum folder depth. Next, the method detects the user manipulation in the user interface, and determines a position where the icon is dragged to is a target position when detecting that the user manipulation is dragging the icon to the position in the ring portion of the sector. The method then moves the manipulated file or file folder to a target drive or file folder corresponding to the target position.06-27-2013
