Description

Field of the Invention



[0001] The present invention relates to Internet technologies, and more particularly to a method and apparatus for establishing an independent message page.

Background of the Invention



[0002] With the developments of network technologies and the expansion of the impacts of the network, Instant Messaging (IM) tools have been accepted by most Internet users and have become essential software tools of the Internet users. The IM tools are widely used in the entertainment and normal work. Hence, the users have high requirements for the IM tools about the usability, stability and security.

[0003] In the procedure of using the IM tool, the IM tool may be combined with a micro-blog tool. Micro-blog messages are displayed on a main panel of an IM client chronologically. Specifically, all of the micro-blog messages may be checked via tab pages on the main panel, and the tab page includes a home page, a @ page (i.e. a replay page) and a guest page etc.

[0004] By using the micro-blog tool, the user may select to receive the micro-blog messages published by another user and become an audience of the another user, and the user may also have audiences receiving the micro-blog message published by the user. By using the home page, the user receives the micro-blog message published by other users, checks the micro-blog message published by the user, checks comments corresponding to the micro-blog messages, and performs other operations related to the micro-blog messages. By using the @ page, the user checks all of micro-blog messages in which the user is mentioned. By using the guest page corresponding to a certain audience, the user checks all of micro-blog messages published by the audience.

[0005] In the procedure of implementing the present invention, shortcomings of conventional modes are found.

[0006] When the number of the micro-blog messages received by the user is too large, it is difficult to display all of the micro-blog messages because of the limited space on the main panel of the IM client for displaying the micro-blog messages, and thus when a single micro-blog message is displayed, details of the single micro-blog message can not be displayed clearly and completely.

[0007] Debbie Levitt: "How to IRC - Windows", 13 May 2008 (2008-05-13), pages 1-10, XP055325216, discloses how to set up chat room capability on your windows PC using PIRCH software and IRC technology.

[0008] Anonymous: "How can I send a private message in IRC chat?", 6 June 2010 (2010-06-06), page 1-1, XP055325208, discloses how to send a private message in IRC chat.

[0009] US 2005/055412 A1 disclose techniques for managing instant messages, including the display of windows for incoming messages, as well as for managing status information for instant messaging users. In one aspect, an instant messaging user defines policy information to programmatically determine a response to an arriving instant message. As an example, the policy may control whether a new window will pop up for a newly-arriving message, and may specify other attributes of the window if desired. In another aspect, an instant messaging user defines attributes pertaining to how his instant messaging status will be presented to others.

Detailed Description of the Invention



[0015] In the technical solutions of the present invention, when an IM client is combined with a micro-blog client, an independent message page of the micro-blog is implemented in the IM client, so that a user can enter an independent message page corresponding to a micro-blog message by triggering a message body displaying the micro-blog message in the main panel of the IM client. In the independent message page, if the micro-blog message includes multimedia information, e.g. a picture, an audio or a video, a thumbnail of the multimedia information is displayed, e.g. a thumbnail of the picture or video is displayed and various operations, e.g. a copying operation and an opening operation can be performed. If the micro-blog message is a dialog message, e.g. the micro-blog message relates to a dialog between users, original texts of the dialog are displayed and contents of the whole dialog may be checked based on the original texts. If the micro-blog message is a forwarding message, e.g. the micro-blog message is published by another user and forwarded by this user, when the times of forwarding an original message corresponding to the forwarding message exceeds a preset value, e.g. 10 times, the times of forwarding the original message is displayed. In addition, the independent message page may also display a detailed message source, a specific terminal sending the message and provide descriptions of the specific terminal.

[0016] The technical solutions of the present invention will be illustrated in detail hereinafter with reference to the accompanying drawings. Obviously, the described embodiments are only parts of the embodiments of the present invention. Other embodiments obtained by those skilled in the art without inventive labor are all belong to the protection scope of the present invention.

[0017] Figure 1 is a flowchart illustrating a method for establishing an independent message page according to an embodiment one of the present invention. As shown in Figure 1, the method includes the following operations.

[0018] In block 101, an IM client obtains a trigger event for a message in a main panel, and obtains identification information of the message according to the trigger event.

[0019] The trigger event may be a mouse click event which includes a mouse double-click event. The IM client monitors the double-click event in a message body area of the main panel. When a user double-clicks the message body area, the IM client obtains the double-click event, obtains a key value of a message corresponding to the double-click event according to a location of the double-clicked message body, takes the key value as the identification information of the message, notifies a control management center of the IM client to establish an independent message page, i.e. sends a request for establishing an independent message page, and transmits parameters to the control management center, the parameters includes data needed for establishing the independent message page.

[0020] In block 102, the IM client determines an independent message page corresponding to the identification information of the message.

[0021] Specifically, the control management center of the IM client determines whether to establish the independent message page according to a service logic. The service logic may be a displaying logic of the independent message page, for example, displaying the independent message page after a double-click operation or displaying the independent message page by clicking an option in a right click menu.

[0022] For one user, because there is only one instance for the home page, the @ page and the independent message page globally, each of the home page, the @ page and the independent message page has only one page, and each audience of the user corresponding to one client page. After the control management center receives the request for establishing the independent message page, if the request includes the identification information of the message, the control management center determines whether the independent message page corresponding to the identification information has been established. If the independent message page corresponding to the identification information has been established, the IM client directly determines the independent message page corresponding to the identification information of the message; if the independent message page corresponding to the identification information has not been established, the IM client establishes the independent message page corresponding to the identification information of the message.

[0023] In the embodiments of the present invention, when establishing the independent message page corresponding to the identification information, in one case, when no independent message page has been established, an independent message page is established, and contents of the independent message page correspond to the identification information; in the other case, when contents of an established independent message page do not correspond to the identification information, the established independent message page is updated, so as to make the contents of the independent message page correspond to the identification information.

[0024] When the independent message page is established, globally unique information of the independent message page may be stored by a DataService variable, so that the IM client just needs to establish the independent message page once, and the independent message page is globally unique. After the independent message page has been established, for contents of a message corresponding to the same key value, the IM client does not need to change the independent message page. For contents of a message corresponding to a different key value, the IM client establishes the independent message page corresponding to different key value by reassigning each part of the established independent message page, so that the contents of the message corresponding to the different key value is displayed on the same independent message page without reestablishing the independent message page, thereby improving the work performance of the IM client. The independent message page includes at least one of the following content display areas: a sender information area, a sender message display area, a message source display area and a specific information display area.

[0025] In block 103, the IM client displays the independent message page.

[0026] Because there is only one global visible page, when one of the home page, the @ page and the independent message page is displayed, other pages are hidden.

[0027] In the embodiments of the present invention, when the message corresponding to the trigger event is a forwarding message or a dialog message, the IM client displays a message source display area by using the independent message page, and the displaying logic of the message source display area is the same as that of the sender message display area. When the message corresponding to the trigger event is a message of other types, the message source display area is hidden.

[0028] In addition, in the independent message page, operations performed by using the mouse right key are supported in the sender message display area and the message source display area. Specifically, because the independent message page belongs to one kind of controls, and a mouse right click event can be monitored in a control layer. When the mouse right click event happens, it is determined whether a location of a mouse is in the sender message display area or the message source display area, if the location of the mouse is in the sender message display area or the message source display area, it is further determined whether the location of the mouse is in a picture preview area. If the location of the mouse is in the picture preview area, the IM client responses the mouse right click event with a picture right click menu; otherwise, the IM client responses with a message body right click menu. The picture right click menu and the message body right click menu may be different or not.

[0029] In the block 102, when the independent message page includes the sender information area, the IM client obtains User Identification Number (UIN) of a sender of the message from a message information center located in the IM client according to the identification information of the message, obtains a head portrait picture of the sender of the message according to the UIN, and obtains authentication information of the sender of the message from an authentication server according to the UIN; the authentication information includes a nickname and a micro-blog website etc. The IM client displays the obtained head portrait picture and authentication information in the sender information display area. The IM client monitors the mouse click event for the head portrait picture, the mouse click event for the authentication picture or the micro-blog website of the authentication information. When the mouse click event happens, the IM client determines a jump address according to an identification field of the mouse click event, and jumps to a page corresponding to the address.

[0030] When the independent message page includes the sender message display area, the IM obtains contents and a type of the message according to the identification information of the message, and generates the sender message display area according to the contents and type of the message. When the type of the message is simple text, the message is displayed directly. When the type of the message is a Uniform/Universal Resource Locator (URL) message, special effects, e.g. a special color and a under line are configure for the URL message and an address of the URL message is stored in the IM client, when the URL message is clicked, the website corresponding to the URL message is jumped to. When the type of the message is a topic message, e.g. micro-blog messages published by multiple users for a certain topic, special characters are added in front of and behind a key word of the topic, when the topic message is clicked, the website corresponding to the contents of the topic is jumped to. When the contents of the message include identification information of a guest, special effect or special color is configured, when the identification information is clicked, a guest page corresponding to the guest is triggered. When the contents of the message include multimedia information, e.g. picture information, audio information or video information, a preview effect picture of the multimedia information is displayed, and various operations can be performed for the multimedia information, e.g. a copy operation and an open operation.

[0031] When the independent message page includes the message source display area, the IM client obtains contents and type of a message source of the message according to the identification information of the message, and displays the contents and the type of the message source of the message in the message source display area. When the independent message page includes specific information display area, the IM client obtains sending time and a sending mode of the message according to the identification information of the message, and displays the sending time and sending mode of the message in the specific information display area. If the message is a forwarding message, the IM client obtains the times of forwarding the message and performs various operations for the message, e.g. a dialog operation, a forwarding operation, a copying operation and a reporting operation. If the message is published by the user via using the IM client, the operations can be performed also includes a cancelling operation. When the cancelling operation is performed, the source of the independent message page (e.g. the home page) is notified of that the message is cancelled the message, and the corresponding interface is updated. The identification information of the message may be the key value of the message.

[0032] Figure 2 is a schematic diagram illustrating an independent message page in an application scenario according to an embodiment of the present invention. A development environment of the effect diagram is ATL project of VS2005. The independent message page includes a sender information area, a sender message display area, a message source display area and a specific information display area, and also includes two buttons "dialog" and "forwarding" which are located at the bottom of the independent message page and displayed in the middle. The IM client monitors a sizechange event in the control layer. When the sizechange event happens, the IM client calculates the width of the whole panel, and reassigns the size of the two buttons, so that the sizes of the two button "dialog" and "forwarding" are automatically changes with the width of the panel.

[0033] Because the lengths of the micro-blog messages corresponding to different message bodies may be different, when different message bodies are triggered, all of the contents of the micro-blog message corresponding to different message bodies can not be displayed by the independent message page with the same size. Hence, when assignment is performed for content data of the independent message page, the size of the independent message page is calculated, and information, e.g. a location of a scroll bar is dynamically determined according to the size of the current main panel, e.g. the size of a user home page, so that when the contents of the micro-blog message are large, the user can check all of the contents of the micro-blog message by dragging the scroll bar. As shown in Figure 2, below the head portrait area, i.e. the head portrait of weiwei, a sharp corner effect is displayed, and a whole background picture may be drawn by using a jiugong mode, and a gradient color effect may be used, so that the color of the whole message area is transit naturally.

[0034] In the embodiments of the present invention, the independent message page is established and displayed for the message according to the trigger event for the message in the main panel, and the entrance for the independent message page corresponding to the message in the main panel is provided, and thus the displayed contents of the message is greatly increased, and the usability and interactivity of the IM client are improved.

[0035] Figure 3 is a schematic diagram illustrating an apparatus for establishing an independent message page according to an embodiment of the present invention. As shown in Figure 3, the apparatus includes an obtaining module 310, an establishing module 320 and a displaying module 330.
