Abstract

See full text

The user interface system provides the input means for inputting a segment by pointing out an arbitrary position of the display screen with the input unit such as a mouse for pointing out arbitrary positions of the display screen. The segment has a position and a length to indicate hours or days. The segment editor displays the segment according to the length which is designated by the input unit such as a mouse. The database entry stores the data indicated by the position and the length of the segment as entered data. Thus, data is entered by inputting a segment. Therefore, data such as a time and a date are not needed to be entered from a keyboard. Since data entry is made by drawing a segment by using a mouse, operation is easy. Furthermore, since the length of the segment shows the hours or period visually to a system operator, the chances of errors are lessened. The user interface system provides a system to input additional information for a segment displayed by the segment editor. Consequently, detailed information which cannot be displayed merely by the segment is coped with in case such detailed information exists.
