20120331423METHOD FOR NAVIGATING A STRUCTURE OF DATA USING A GRAPHICAL USER INTERFACE HAVING A LOOPED HISTORY CHAIN - An improved navigation method implemented as a graphical user interface (GUI). The GUI has navigation tools to allow a user to navigate to different locations of a structure of data. The GUI stores a history chain containing a sequence of nodes including a first node and a last node, each node represents a location the user has previously navigated to. The GUI moves backward or forward along the history chain in response to a back or forward command from the user. When a current node position in the history chain is the first (or last) node and a back (or forward) command is received, the GUI moves to the last (or first) node of the history chain, thereby forming a looped history chain.12-27-2012

20120151418LINKING OF A PLURALITY OF ITEMS OF A USER INTERFACE TO DISPLAY NEW INFORMATION INFERRED FROM THE PLURALITY OF ITEMS THAT ARE LINKED - A first item and a second item that are displayed in a user interface are selected via a computational device. A determination is made as to whether a linkage between the first item and the second item is a valid linkage, wherein the valid linkage indicates that inferences that relate the first item to the second item may be drawn by interpreting properties of the first item and properties of the second item. In response to determining that the linkage between the first item and the second item is a valid linkage, the properties of the first item and the properties of the second item are interpreted to infer new properties that relate the properties of the first item to the properties of the second item.06-14-2012
20080244458Remoting of Windows Presentation Framework based Applications in a Non-Composed Desktop - Described are systems and methods for remoting applications, such as those based on Windows® Presentation Foundation (WPF). The systems and methods are based on remoting information associated with a structural representation.
