20110314412COMPOSITING APPLICATION CONTENT AND SYSTEM CONTENT FOR DISPLAY - Application content and system content are composited to create composited frames for display by drawing foreground application content into an application buffer, building a reconstruction buffer, drawing system user interface content on top of the foreground application content in the application buffer, and displaying a composited frame by sending the application buffer directly to display hardware for display. The reconstruction buffer contains portions of the foreground application content copied from the application buffer. When system user interface content is being updated, the reconstruction buffer is used to recreate the original foreground application content. Updated system user interface content and original foreground application content are then used to create additional composited frames for display.12-22-2011

20130205245SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR NAVIGATING A CALENDAR - Methods, systems, and graphical user interfaces are provided for navigating a calendar application executing on a computer system. Aspects of scrolling by day and scrolling by week are combined into a hybrid approach that includes advantages of both. For example, the week can be displayed with the current day first (e.g. in the left most column), thereby providing a more relevant view to a user. Then, when a user selects to move forward or backward, the next or previous full week (i.e. starting with a designated day, such as Sunday or Monday) can be displayed. And, when a user forward through the current day (or other selected day), the week view can stop with the selected day displayed first, to give a user a view of the next set of days following the selected day.08-08-2013
20130205246GUI Document Management System - This invention, a system for managing GUI documents, uses a set of graphical elements provided with computers having a graphical user interface operating system as presentation elements out of which can be made in a truly wysiwyg (what-you-wee-is-what-you-get) interface, multiple single page multimedia documents for presenting digital images, video, animations, graphics, audio, and text in different font faces, styles, and colors and implements functional equivalents of the HTML href (hyperlink) elements. A GUI document management system can be the centerpiece around which a wide variety of computer software applications can be made including collaborative document development systems, training and learning management systems, and document webs comparable to the World Wide Web. When used to develop document webs on the internet, the webs developed are fully read-write, a long sought but never achieved goal of the World Wide Web.
