Description

TECHNICAL FIELD

BACKGROUND



[0002] With the development of intelligent terminal devices, a screen capture function has become a basic configuration of the terminal device.

DESCRIPTION OF EMBODIMENTS



[0024] The following clearly and completely describes the technical solutions in the embodiments of the present invention with reference to the accompanying drawings in the embodiments of the present invention. Apparently, the described embodiments are a part rather than all of the embodiments of the present invention. All other embodiments obtained by a person of ordinary skill in the art based on the embodiments of the present invention without creative efforts shall fall within the protection scope of the present invention.

[0025] It should be understood that in the embodiments of the present invention, user equipment (User Equipment, "UE" for short) may be a mobile phone, a tablet computer, a computer having a mobile terminal, or the like. For example, the terminal device may also be a portable, pocket-sized, handheld, computer built-in, or vehicle-mounted mobile apparatus. The embodiments of the present invention are not limited thereto.

[0026] FIG. 1 shows a schematic flowchart of a screen capture method 100 according to an embodiment of the present invention, where the method may be executed by a screen capture apparatus. Optionally, the screen capture apparatus may be an independent apparatus, or may be a module in a terminal device. This embodiment of the present invention is not limited thereto. As shown in FIG. 1, the method 100 includes:

[0027] S110. When it is detected that two fingers swipe parallel in a same direction on a screen, acquire a screen capture region according to the same-direction parallel swiping.

[0028] S120. According to the screen capture region, acquire an image displayed in the screen capture region.

[0029] Therefore, according to the screen capture method in this embodiment of the present invention, a screen capture operation is performed by recognizing same-direction parallel swiping of two fingers on a screen, so that a user can capture an image displayed in a part of a region of the screen according to an individual requirement, and the method is applicable to various touch-operation terminal devices without the help of an external tool, thereby simplifying the operation and improving user experience.

[0030] Optionally, in S110, the screen capture apparatus may detect a touch point on the screen of the screen capture apparatus. When the terminal device detects two touch points on the screen, that is, the two fingers touch the screen simultaneously, and when the two touch points continuously and smoothly move over time, a touch operation of the two fingers may be determined according to moving tracks of the two touch points.

[0031] Optionally, when the screen capture apparatus detects that the two touch points continuously move parallel along the screen in a same direction as time elapses, that is, the two fingers incessantly swipe parallel in a same direction on the screen, it can be determined that the touch operation is a screen capture operation. Optionally, the moving tracks of the two touch points may be straight lines, or may be bending lines that approximate to straight lines. In this case, the screen capture apparatus may perform smoothing processing on the bending lines that approximate to straight lines, so as to obtain straight lines corresponding to the moving tracks. However, this embodiment of the present invention is not limited thereto.

[0032] Specifically, when the moving tracks of the two touch points keep same-direction parallel, the screen capture apparatus can determine that the two fingers swipe parallel in a same direction on the screen. When the moving tracks of the two touch points are approximately same-direction parallel, that is, there is an included angle within a preset included angle range between the moving tracks of the two touch points, the screen capture apparatus can also determine that the two fingers swipe parallel in a same direction on the screen, where setting of the preset included angle range should avoid mistaken determining of a touch operation as much as possible. However, this embodiment of the present invention is not limited thereto.

[0033] Optionally, when the screen capture apparatus determines that the touch operation is a screen capture operation, the screen capture apparatus may acquire start point positions and/or end point positions of the same-direction parallel swiping, and acquire the screen capture region according to the start point positions and/or the end point positions. Correspondingly, as shown in FIG. 2, after the detecting that two fingers swipe parallel in a same direction on a screen and before the acquiring a screen capture region according to the same-direction parallel swiping, the method 100 further includes:

[0034] S130. Acquire swipe tracks of the same-direction parallel swiping according to the same-direction parallel swiping.

[0035] S140. Acquire start point positions and/or end point positions of the same-direction parallel swiping according to the same-direction parallel swiping.

[0036] To avoid mistaken recognition of the screen capture operation by the terminal device, the screen capture apparatus may determine that the touch operation is a screen capture operation only when it is detected that the start point positions and the end point positions of the same-direction parallel swiping are in a preset edge display region of the screen. Specifically, the screen capture apparatus may determine that the touch operation is a screen capture operation only when two start points of the same-direction parallel swiping are both in the edge display region, or may determine that the touch operation is a screen capture operation when one or two start points of the same-direction parallel swiping is/are in the edge display region. Optionally, in another embodiment, the screen capture apparatus may determine that the touch operation is a screen capture operation only when two end point positions of the same-direction parallel swiping are both in the edge display region, or may determine that the touch operation is a screen capture operation when one or two end point positions of the same-direction parallel swiping is/are in the edge display region. Optionally, in another embodiment, the screen capture apparatus may determine that the touch operation is a screen capture operation only when at least one start point and at least one end point position of the same-direction parallel swiping are both in the edge display region, or may determine that the touch operation is same-direction parallel swiping when at least one start point and/or at least one end point of the same-direction parallel swiping are/is in the edge display region. This embodiment of the present invention is not limited thereto.

[0037] The edge display region may be preset. The edge display region may include positions on borders of a display region of the screen, and the edge display region may be a region inside the display region of the screen but outside a preset rectangular region, where the preset rectangular region is in the display region of the screen and is concentric with the display region of the screen. However, this embodiment of the present invention is not limited thereto.

[0038] Optionally, in S110, the acquiring a screen capture region according to the same-direction parallel swiping specifically includes:

[0039] Sill. Acquire the screen capture region according to any one or any combination of multiple of the start point positions, the end point positions, and the swipe tracks when the start point positions and/or the end point positions are in a display region at a screen edge.

[0040] Optionally, in another embodiment, when the screen capture apparatus detects that a start point of the same-direction parallel swiping is in the preset rectangular region, it can be determined that the start point is outside the edge display region of the terminal device. When the screen capture apparatus detects that an end point of the same-direction parallel swiping is in the preset rectangular region, it can be determined that the end point is outside the edge display region of the terminal device. When the terminal device detects that neither of the two start point positions of the same-direction parallel swiping is in the edge display region, and/or neither of the two end point positions of the same-direction parallel swiping is in the edge display region, the terminal device can determine that the touch operation is an invalid operation, and does not execute a screen capture operation. However, this embodiment of the present invention is not limited thereto.

[0041] It should be understood that, in this embodiment of the present invention, the start point positions and the end point positions of the same-direction parallel swiping indicate start point positions and end point positions of the same-direction parallel swiping that are determined by the screen capture apparatus, and the start point positions and the end point positions of the same-direction parallel swiping that are determined by the screen capture apparatus may be different from start point positions and end point positions of actual swiping of the two fingers on an upper surface on which the display region of the screen is located. For example, when the two fingers continuously swipe across the display region of the screen, each taking a point that is on the upper surface on which the screen is located but is outside the display region of the screen as a start point, and stopping at a point that is outside the display region and is on another side of the upper surface, because the screen capture apparatus cannot detect a touch signal outside the display region of the screen, start point positions and end point positions of the same-direction parallel swiping that are detected by the screen capture apparatus are all on borders of the display region of the screen. Therefore, it may be considered that the start points and the end points of the same-direction parallel swiping are all in a display region at a screen edge. However, this embodiment of the present invention is not limited thereto.

[0042] Optionally, in another embodiment, the screen capture apparatus may acquire the screen capture region in multiple optional manners. For example, the screen capture apparatus may use an region enclosed by the swipe tracks of the same-direction parallel swiping and horizontal lines or by the swipe tracks and vertical lines as the screen capture region, or perform smoothing processing on the swipe tracks of the same-direction parallel swiping and use an region enclosed by smoothed swipe tracks and horizontal lines or by the smoothed swipe tracks and vertical lines as the screen capture region, or use an region enclosed by connection lines between the start points and the end points of the swipe tracks and horizontal lines or by the connection lines and vertical lines as the screen capture region, or the like. Correspondingly, in Sill, the acquiring the screen capture region according to any one or any combination of multiple of the start point positions, the end point positions, and the swipe tracks when the start point positions and/or the end point positions are in a display region at a screen edge specifically includes:

[0043] S111a. When the start point positions and/or the end point positions are in a display region at a screen edge, acquire the screen capture region according to an region enclosed by the swipe tracks and horizontal lines or by the swipe tracks and vertical lines.

[0044] The screen capture apparatus may use an region enclosed by the swipe tracks and horizontal lines or by the swipe tracks and vertical lines as the screen capture region, or may perform smoothing processing on the swipe tracks and use an region enclosed by smoothed swipe tracks and horizontal lines or by the smoothed swipe tracks and vertical lines as the screen capture region. This embodiment of the present invention is not limited thereto. Specifically, as shown in FIG. 3, when the swipe tracks of the same-direction parallel swiping are along a horizontal direction, the screen capture apparatus may use an region enclosed by the two swipe tracks of the same-direction parallel swiping and two vertical lines as the screen capture region. Optionally, as shown in FIG. 5, when the swipe tracks are along a vertical direction, the screen capture apparatus may use an region enclosed by the two swipe tracks of the same-direction parallel swiping and two horizontal lines as the screen capture region. Optionally, when there is an oblique angle that is not equal to 90 degrees between the swipe tracks of the same-direction parallel swiping and the horizontal direction, the screen capture apparatus may determine, according to the oblique angle of the swipe tracks, whether to use an region enclosed by the swipe tracks and horizontal lines as the screen capture region or use an region enclosed by the swipe tracks and vertical lines as the screen capture region. This embodiment of the present invention is not limited thereto.

[0045] Optionally, in another embodiment, in Sill, the acquiring the screen capture region according to any one or any combination of multiple of the start point positions, the end point positions, and the swipe tracks when the start point positions and/or the end point positions are in a display region at a screen edge specifically includes:

S 111b. when the start point positions and/or the end point positions are in a display region at a screen edge, acquire the screen capture region according to an region enclosed by connection lines between the start point positions and the end point positions and horizontal lines or by the connection lines and vertical lines; or

S111c. when the start point positions and/or the end point positions are in a display region at a screen edge, acquire the screen capture region according to an region enclosed by successively connecting the start point positions and the end point positions.



[0046] Specifically, in S111b, when the connection lines between the start points and the end points of the two swipe tracks of the same-direction parallel swiping are both along the horizontal direction and the two start point positions and the two end point positions are separately on a same vertical line, the screen capture apparatus may use a rectangular region enclosed by the two connection lines and the vertical lines as the screen capture region. Optionally, when the connection lines between the start point positions and the end point positions of the two swipe tracks are both along the vertical direction and the two start point positions and the two end point positions are separately on a same horizontal line, the screen capture apparatus may use an rectangular region enclosed by the two connection lines and the horizontal lines as the screen capture region. Optionally, when the connection lines between the start point positions and the end point positions of the same-direction parallel swiping are neither along the horizontal direction nor along the vertical direction and the two start point positions and the two end point positions are separately on a same horizontal line or vertical line, the screen capture apparatus may use a parallelogram region enclosed by the two connection lines and the vertical lines or the horizontal lines as the screen capture region. Optionally, when the start point positions of the two swipe tracks are not on a same vertical line or horizontal line, the screen capture apparatus may choose, on a specific basis, one of the start point positions as a reference to acquire the screen capture region. Correspondingly, when the end point positions of the two swipe tracks are not on a same vertical line, the screen capture apparatus may also choose, on a specific basis, one of the end point positions as a reference to acquire the screen capture region, where the basis may be that the screen capture region has a relatively large or small area, or the like. This embodiment of the present invention is not limited thereto.

[0047] In S 111c, the screen capture apparatus successively connects the start point positions and the end point positions of the two swipe tracks, and uses a quadrilateral region enclosed by four connection lines as the screen capture region. However, this embodiment of the present invention is not limited thereto.

[0048] Optionally, in another embodiment, the screen capture apparatus may also use a rectangular region enclosed by the connection lines between the start point positions and the end point positions of the swiping of the two fingers and lines perpendicular to the connection lines as the screen capture region. Specifically, when a swipe direction of the same-direction parallel swiping is the horizontal direction, the lines perpendicular to the connection lines between the start point positions and the end point positions are vertical lines; or when a swipe direction of the same-direction parallel swiping is the vertical direction, the lines perpendicular to the connection lines between the start point positions and the end point positions are horizontal lines. Optionally, when the connection lines between the start point positions and the end point positions of the same-direction parallel swiping are not completely parallel and have a very small angle, the screen capture apparatus may use one of the connection lines as a reference to adjust the other connection line, so that the two connection lines are parallel to each other. This embodiment of the present invention is not limited thereto.

[0049] Optionally, for the horizontal direction and the vertical direction, a longitudinal direction of the screen capture apparatus in a current posture of the screen capture apparatus may be used as the horizontal direction, and a latitudinal direction of the screen capture apparatus may be used as the vertical direction; or the vertical direction may always be the direction of gravity, and the horizontal direction may be a direction perpendicular to the vertical direction, which has nothing to do with a current posture of the screen capture apparatus. In whatever case, the horizontal lines are parallel to the horizontal direction, and the vertical lines are parallel to the vertical direction. This embodiment of the present invention is not limited thereto.

[0050] Optionally, the method 100 further includes:
S150. When the region acquired in Slllb or S111c is non-rectangular, determine that the screen capture region is a largest-area or smallest-area rectangle region covered by the region.

[0051] Specifically, when the parallelogram region acquired in Slllb is non-rectangular, the parallelogram region may be processed to obtain a rectangular region as the screen capture region. Specifically, the screen capture apparatus may patch two ends of the parallelogram with two triangular regions and use an acquired rectangular region as the screen capture region, or cut out two internal triangular regions from the parallelogram and use an obtained rectangular region as the screen capture region. This embodiment of the present invention is not limited thereto.

[0052] When the quadrilateral region acquired in S111c is not a parallelogram, the screen capture apparatus may perform a processing operation on the quadrilateral to obtain a parallelogram, and use the parallelogram region as the screen capture region; or the screen capture apparatus performs further processing on the quadrilateral region to obtain a rectangular region, and uses the rectangular region as the screen capture region. This embodiment of the present invention is not limited thereto.

[0053] Optionally, in another embodiment, the screen capture apparatus may further notify a user of a result of the screen capture after the screen capture succeeds or fails. Correspondingly, the method 100 further includes:
S160. Notify a user that a screen capture operation is successfully performed.

[0054] The screen capture apparatus may notify the user by playing a prompt tone, or may notify the user by displaying an image indicating success or failure on the screen. Specifically, the success-indicating image may be the captured image. However, this embodiment of the present invention is not limited thereto.

[0055] Optionally, in another embodiment, the screen capture apparatus may display operation options for the image when displaying the captured image, so that the user can perform further operations and processing on the image. Correspondingly, the method 100 further includes:
S170. Present the image on the screen, and present operation options for the image at the same time.

[0056] As shown in FIG. 4 and FIG. 6, the operation options may include a share option, a cancel option, and a save option. Optionally, the operation options may include at least one option of the three options, and the operation options may further include another option. This embodiment of the present invention is not limited thereto. The user may tap a corresponding operation option according to a requirement. After receiving an operation instruction of the user, the screen capture apparatus may perform a corresponding operation on the image according to the operation instruction. However, this embodiment of the present invention is not limited thereto.

[0057] Therefore, according to the screen capture method in this embodiment of the present invention, a screen capture operation is performed by recognizing same-direction parallel swiping of two fingers on a screen, so that a user can capture an image displayed in a part of a region of the screen according to an individual requirement, and the method is applicable to various touch-operation terminal devices without the help of an external tool, thereby simplifying the operation and improving user experience.

[0058] With reference to a specific example, the following describes the screen capture method provided in the embodiments of the present invention in more detail. FIG. 7 is a schematic flowchart of a screen capture method 200 according to another embodiment of the present invention. The method may be executed by a screen capture apparatus. As shown in FIG. 7, the method 200 includes:

S210. Detect a touch operation performed by a finger on a screen.

S220. When it is detected that two fingers swipe parallel in a same direction on the screen, determine whether start point positions of the same-direction parallel swiping are in a display region at a screen edge.



[0059] The same-direction parallel swiping may be same-direction parallel swiping along a horizontal direction, or may be same-direction parallel swiping along a vertical direction. This embodiment of the present invention is not limited thereto.
