Touch gesture for detailed display


In general, the present disclosure is directed to techniques for displaying, e.g., events of multiple calendars or annotations in a word processor in a single view. In one example, a method includes, providing a first calendar and a second calendar, wherein the first calendar includes a first group of calendar events at least some of which have corresponding textual event details, and wherein the second calendar includes a second group of calendar events at least some of which have corresponding textual event details; receiving a user input to select one of the first calendar or the second calendar; displaying the one or more corresponding textual event details of the first group of calendar events for the first calendar; and displaying visual representations of the second group of calendar events for the second calendar without displaying the corresponding textual event details.

CROSS-REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATIONS

This application is a continuation of U.S. application Ser. No. 13/250,845, filed Sep. 30, 2011 which is a continuation of U.S. application Ser. No. 13/020,570, filed Feb. 3, 2011, the entire contents of which are incorporated herein by reference.

TECHNICAL FIELD

This disclosure relates to graphical user interfaces.

BACKGROUND

A user may interact with applications executing on a computing device (e.g., mobile phone, tablet computer, smart phone, or the like). For instance, a user may install, view, or delete an application on a computing device.

In some instances, a user may interact with a calendar application executing on a computing device. A user may view a time, day, or event in a calendar application. A user may also change events in a calendar application. A user may, in some instances, interact with a calendar application on a computing device using buttons or a touch-screen.

SUMMARY

In one example, a method includes, providing a first calendar and a second calendar during execution of a module on a computing device, wherein the first calendar includes a first group of calendar events at least some of which have one or more corresponding textual event details, and wherein the second calendar includes a second group of calendar events at least some of which have one or more corresponding textual event details; receiving a user input to select one of the first calendar or the second calendar; upon receiving the user input, displaying the one or more corresponding textual event details of the first group of calendar events for the first calendar; and upon receiving the user input, displaying visual representations of the second group of calendar events for the second calendar without displaying the one or more corresponding textual event details of the second group of calendar events.

In one example, a computer-readable storage medium is encoded with instructions that when executed cause one or more processors of a computing device to perform operations including: providing a first calendar and a second calendar during execution of a module, wherein the first calendar includes a first group of calendar events at least some of which have one or more corresponding textual event details, and wherein the second calendar includes a second group of calendar events at least some of which have one or more corresponding textual event details; receiving a user input to select one of the first calendar or the second calendar; upon receiving the user input, displaying the one or more corresponding textual event details of the first group of calendar events for the first calendar; and upon receiving the user input, displaying visual representations of the second group of calendar events for the second calendar without displaying the one or more corresponding textual event details of the second group of calendar events.

In one example, a computing device includes one or more processors; an output device; a calendar application installed on the computing device and operable by the one or more processors to display at the output device a first calendar and a second calendar during execution of the calendar application, wherein the first calendar includes a first group of calendar events at least some of which have one or more corresponding textual event details, and wherein the second calendar includes a second group of calendar events at least some of which have one or more corresponding textual event details; an input device to receive a user input to select one of the first calendar or the second calendar; and means for displaying the one or more corresponding textual event details of the first group of calendar events for the first calendar and visual representations of the second group of calendar events for the second calendar without displaying the one or more corresponding textual event details of the second group of calendar events.

In one example, a method includes providing a first annotation group and a second annotation group during execution of a module on a computing device, wherein the first annotation group includes annotations at least some of which have one or more corresponding textual annotation details, and wherein the second annotation group includes annotations at least some of which have one or more corresponding textual annotation details; receiving a user input to select one of the first annotation group or the second annotation group; upon receiving the user input, displaying the one or more corresponding textual annotation details of the annotations for the first annotation group; and upon receiving the user input, displaying visual representations of the annotations for the second annotation group without displaying the one or more corresponding textual annotation details of the annotations of the second annotation group.

In one example, a computer-readable storage medium is encoded with instructions that when executed cause one or more processors of a computing device to perform operations including: providing a first annotation group and a second annotation group during execution of a module, wherein the first annotation group includes annotations at least some of which have one or more corresponding textual annotation details, and wherein the second annotation group includes annotations at least some of which have one or more corresponding textual annotation details; receiving a user input to select one of the first annotation group or the second annotation group; upon receiving the user input, displaying the one or more corresponding textual annotation details of the annotations for the first annotation group; and upon receiving the user input, displaying visual representations of the annotations for the second annotation group without displaying the one or more corresponding textual annotation details of the annotations of the second annotation group.

In one example, a computing device includes: one or more processors; an output device; an application installed on the computing device and operable by the one or more processors to display at the output device a first annotation group and a second annotation group during execution of the application, wherein the first annotation group includes a first group of annotations at least some of which have one or more corresponding textual annotation details, and wherein the second annotation group includes a second group of annotations at least some of which have one or more corresponding textual annotation details; an input device to receive a user input to select one of the first annotation group or the second annotation group; and means for displaying the one or more corresponding textual annotation details of the first group of annotations for the first annotation group and visual representations of the second group of annotations for the second annotation group without displaying the one or more corresponding textual annotation details of the second group of annotations.

In one example, a method includes: displaying a first group of objects and a second group of objects; displaying first corresponding information of at least one of the first group of objects; displaying second corresponding information of at least one of the second group of objects; receiving, by a computing device, user input to select one of the first group of objects or the second group of objects; upon receiving the user input, displaying a quantity of the first corresponding information of the at least one of the first group of objects; upon receiving the user input, displaying a quantity of the second corresponding information of the at least one of the second group of objects, wherein the first quantity is not equal to the second quantity.
