BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
Field of the Invention:
The present invention relates generally to an apparatus and method to provide
an added service for a portable terminal. More particularly, the present invention relates to
an apparatus and method for a portable terminal wherein user data may be displayed in an
enlarged or reduced S1ze.
Description of the Related Art:
Advances in wireless communication technologies have increased the
popularity of portable terminals. Communication network operators provide various services
in order to satisfy diverS1fied needs of subscribers.
For example, a portable terminal performs a baS1c call procesS1ng function that
facilitates a subscriber's ability to place/receive a phone call to/from another fixed or mobile
subscriber while in motion in a service area of a base station. Such a portable terminal can
also perform added functions enabling personal information management and data exchange
through connection to a computer or to an Internet network. In particular, an advanced
portable terminal can perform transmisS1on and reception of pictures or moving images,
support virtual three-dimenS1onal sounds or stereo sounds, play Moving Picture Experts
Group's MPEG-1 Audio Layer 3 (MP3) files, and include a camera for photographing.
Various content services such as a data service are also provided to portable
terminals. S1zes of characters or images displayed on the screen tend to decrease as a result
of posS1ble picture S1ze limitations of portable terminals. This lowers a. user's
comprehenS1bility.
To increase comprehenS1bility of the screen, use of a magnifying glass that can
be externally installed at a portable terminal has been proposed to enlarge the screen content
if necessary. A method for on-screen character enlargement has also been proposed, wherein

a font of deS1red characters is selected uS1ng a key for character enlargement and the selected
font is read from a font memory to enlarge characters displayed on the screen.
However, in a conventional method of utilizing an external appliance such as a
magnifying glass to enlarge screen data, addition of a separate mechanical means may
S1gnificantly increase the volume of a portable terminal and cause a deS1gn change thereof. In
another conventional method of utilizing a font memory to store multiple fonts, a large
memory capacity is required for a portable terminal and the user is inconvenienced by having
to specify S1zes of characters.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF EXEMPLARY EMBODIMENTS
The matters defined in the description such as a detailed construction and
elements are provided to asS1st in a comprehenS1ve understanding of the embodiments of the
invention. Accordingly, those of ordinary skill in the art will recognize that various changes
and modifications of the embodiments described herein can be made without departing from
the scope and spirit of the invention. Also, descriptions of well-known functions and
constructions are omitted for clarity and conciseness.
An exemplary embodiment of the present invention relates to an apparatus and
method capable of delivering added functions and services to a portable terminal for user
convenience. In exemplary embodiments of the present invention, an apparatus and method
for a portable terminal are provided in which user data can be displayed in an enlarged or
reduced S1ze according to user requests.
According to an exemplary embodiment of the present invention, in a short
message service (SMS) that is an added function of a portable terminal, displayed characters
are enlarged or reduced through function keys of the portable terminal. While the user inputs
characters or reads a received message in an SMS service, if a particular event is generated
through an associated function key, the portable terminal increases or decreases S1zes of
characters displayed on the screen. This example is applicable for all kinds of user data
usable through a portable terminal, including characters, images, moving pictures and menus.
Exemplary embodiments of the present invention relate to an apparatus and
method to enlarge or reduce screen content of a portable terminal according to user requests.
Enlargement/reduction of screen content in response to user requests improves user
comprehenS1bility of displayed characters or images.
In an exemplary embodiment of the present invention, user data includes
character data such as menus and text, and multimedia data such as images and moving
pictures, in the delivery of, for example, SMS services and multimedia message services
(MMS).
According to another exemplary embodiment, for transmisS1on or reception of
characters uS1ng a portable terminal in an SMS or MMS service, S1zes of displayed characters
are eaS1ly adjusted through function keys of the portable terminal, for example volume keys,
to facilitates the user's ability to readily comprehend the text. That is, S1zes of displayed
characters are increased corresponding to occurrences of events associated with, for example,

the up volume key, and are decreased corresponding to occurrences of events associated with,
for example, the down volume key.
The screen is moved up/down/left/right uS1ng function keys, such as direction
keys, to make the overall enlarged user data viS1ble so that the user data can be readily
understood by the user. This enhances a user's convenience.
According to another exemplary embodiment of the present invention, when
displayed characters in an SMS or MMS service are enlarged or reduced, characters are
automatically rearranged corresponding to changes in character S1ze, thereby enhancing user
convenience.
For example, in the case in which text does not fit within the screen due to
character enlargement, those characters no longer viS1ble within a line are identified and
characters are rearranged in lines through, for example, an auto line feed feature. That is,
those characters no longer viS1ble within a line of the screen are automatically moved to the
next line, and the text is made eaS1ly viS1ble. The entire text is made viS1ble through
movement to the next page uS1ng keys, for example up and down keys, or through a scrolling
feature.
As described above, in the display data enlargement/reduction method of an
exemplary embodiment of the present invention, a separate external appliance is not required;
fonts of multiple character S1zes do not have to be stored, leading to highly effective memory
utilization; and character S1zes can be adaptively controlled. Hereinafter, exemplary
embodiments of the present invention are described with reference to the accompanying
drawings.
Although, for the purpose of description, a mobile communication terminal is
described as an example of a mobile terminal of an exemplary embodiment of the present
invention. Exemplary embodiments of the present invention are not limited to a mobile
communication terminal. The mobile terminal of an exemplary embodiment of the present
invention is a terminal provided for user convenience, and may be any information and
communication appliances and multimedia appliances, such as a mobile communication
terminal, mobile phone, wired phone, wireless phone, personal digital asS1stant (PDA), smart
phone, audio player, MP3 player, notebook, and persona] computer. The mobile terminal
may also be applied to applications uS1ng such appliances.

FIG. 1 is an illustration of an example configuration of a portable terminal
according to an exemplary embodiment of the present invention.
Referring to FIG. I, the portable terminal comprises an input means, a
procesS1ng means, a storage means, an output means, and a communication means.
The input means acts to input multimedia data composed of audios,
numerals/characters and images, and includes an audio processor 107, a key input unit 109
and a camera module 113.
The procesS1ng means processes user data of voices, numerals/characters and
images input through the input means, and performs operations necessary to handle added
functions requested by the user. The procesS1ng means includes a S1gnal processor 115, a
video processor 117, a data processor 105, and a controller 101.
The storage means stores user data input through the input means, and
applications to realize added functions of the mobile terminal. The storage means includes a
memory unit 111.
The output means outputs user data input through the input means, user data
and related data stored in the storage means, and screen data associated with added functions.
The output means includes a display unit 119 and an audio processor 107.
The communication means performs wireless transmisS1on of user data to
another user, and connects to an external Web server to transmit/receive contents. The
communication means includes a radio frequency (RF) processor 103 and an antenna.
To be more specific about each component, the RF processor 103 performs
communication operations related to phone calls, SMS or MMS services and data
communications. The RF processor 103 includes an RF transmitter for upconverting the
frequency of a S1gnal to be transmitted and amplifying the S1gnal, and an RF receiver for low-
noise amplifying a received S1gnal and downconverting the frequency of the S1gnal.
The data processor 105 processes voice data from the audio processor 107 and
numeric/character data input by the user through the key input unit 109. The data processor
105 may include a means for encoding and modulating a S1gnal to be transmitted through the
RF processor 103, and a means for demodulating and decoding a S1gnal received through the
RF processor 103.

The audio processor 107 reproduces an audio S1gnal from the data processor
105, and transmits an audio S1gnal such as a voice S1gnal input from a microphone to the data
processor 105.
The key input unit 109 includes numeric, character and function keys for
inputting numeric and character information and for setting various functions. In particular,
the function keys include volume keys, direction keys and associated mapped keys for data
enlargement/reduction and screen movement through the display unit 119.
The memory unit 111 may include a program memory and a data memory.
The program memory stores control programs for controlling the overall operation of the
portable terminal, and application programs for data enlargement/reduction and screen
movement.
The data memory stores data resulting from execution of the control and
application programs, information to set functions related with enlargement/reduction of
displayed user data, and a database for managing various data in the form of records.
The programs for enlarging, reducing and moving displayed user data can be
loaded as special-purpose applications, and include program modules for detecting and
identifying key events related with enlargement/reduction commands for user data displayed
through the display unit 119 and associated move commands, program modules for
controlling enlargement/reduction of the user data in response to the key events, program
modules for controlling movement of the user data in response to key events occurring after
data enlargement/reduction, and program modules for notification of results generated from
user event procesS1ng operations.
The controller 101 controls the overall operation and internal components of
the portable terminal. In response to input of a mode change S1gnal related to data
enlargement/reduction through the key input unit 109, the controller 101 controls a
corresponding mode setting operation. In response to input of S1gnals associated with data
enlargement/reduction and subsequent screen movement through the key input unit 109, the
controller 101 controls corresponding operations. For example, when events associated with
data enlargement/reduction occur through the key input unit 109, the controller 101 controls
corresponding operations to enlarge/reduce user data displayed through the display unit 119
in response to the events. When events occur after screen image enlargement/reduction, the
controller 101 controls movement of the enlarged/reduced user data. In response to input of a

mode setting S1gnal, the controller 101 also controls corresponding added functions and
output of managed user data or created guide messages.
Upon reception of information from the user, the controller 101 determines
whether a corresponding service mode is activated or deactivated, identifies an input event
under the condition of the determined service mode state, and controls data
enlargement/reduction and screen movement according to the identified input event.
Specifically, in an activated state of an enlargement/reduction mode, the
controller 101 identifies an input key event. If the identified key event indicates data
enlargement, the controller 101 controls enlargement of displayed user data by a specified
ratio. If the identified key event indicates data reduction, ,the controller 101 controls
reduction of displayed user data by a specified ratio. If the identified key event indicates
screen movement, the controller 101 controls movement of the screen in a specified direction.
In a deactivated state of the enlargement/reduction mode, the controller 101
identifies an input key event, and controls operations necessary to handle the key event. For
example, if the input key event indicates volume up/down, the controller 101 controls a
corresponding volume up/down operation.
Although, in the description above, the controller 101 controls data
enlargement/reduction in response to key events, the controller 101 may also control
automatic data enlargement/reduction according to preset mode settings.
For example, the user can set in advance an enlargement/reduction ratio and
time interval for user data, such as incoming SMS data. When SMS data is received and
displayed, the SMS data can be automatically enlarged or reduced at the preset
enlargement/reduction ratio from the beginning of the preset time interval, and be
automatically restored to the initial S1ze at the end of the time interval.
Various enlargement/reduction mode settings can be specified according to
user selections. In particular, various S1zed screen data can be provided for the convenience
of users who may be elderly or who may have poor S1ght.
The user data may be any type of data handled by the portable terminal, such
as a phone number of a called party input through the key input unit 109,
transmisS1on/reception data of an SMS, MMS or electronic mail service, data related to a data
communication connection, a photograph taken by the camera module 113, menu or user
interface data, and multimedia data including an icon, image and moving picture.

The eamera module 113 photographs a target object and outputs image or
video data. The S1gnal processor 115 converts image or video data from the camera module
113 into a digital S1gnal for further procesS1ng.
The video processor 117 generates screen data to display a digital S1gnal from
the S1gnal processor 115 and to display user data changed by enlargement/reduction
operations of an exemplary embodiment of the present invention. Under the control of the
controller 101, the video processor 117 outputs screen data associated with a received digital
image S1gnal or with enlargement/reduction/movement of user data depending upon service
mode settings to the display unit 119 in a format conS1stent with specifications of the display
unit 119. The video processor 117 also compresses and decompresses video data.
The display unit 119 displays video data from the video processor 117 on a
screen. The display unit 119 also adaptively displays the user data enlarged/reduced/moved
according to the control of the controller 101. The display unit 119 further displays windows
for running or setting application modules performing data enlargement/reduction, and mode
setting guide messages provided from the controller 101.
The portable terminal further comprises an event determiner 121 for
identifying key events input through the key input unit 109, and a user data determiner 123
for examining user data displayed through the display unit 119.
The event determiner 121 determines whether the enlargement/reduction mode
is set. If the enlargement/reduction mode is set, the event determiner 121 identifies an event
S1gnal input through the key input unit 109, and transmits identified information on the event
S1gnal to the controller 101.
The user data determiner 123 identifies types of currently displayed user data,
and transmits the identified types to the controller 101 so that the controller 101 can control
data enlargement/reduction and associated screen display based on the data type information.
For example, if currently displayed user data is character data such as SMS data, the user data
determiner 123 transmits character type information to the controller 101, which facilitates
control of data enlargement/reduction and associated screen display in a manner conS1stent
with character type data.
In particular, if currently displayed user data is character data containing an
emoticon, such as SMS data, the user data determiner 123 transmits emoticon type
information to the controller 101 to facilitate the control of data enlargement/reduction and

associated screen display according to emoticon type data. As a result, it is posS1ble to
prevent deformation of the emoticon due to enlargement/reduction.
For enlargement/reduction of specialized user data, the type of the user data is
identified in advance through, for example, the user data determiner 123, and screen display
during enlargement/reduction is adaptively controlled according to the identified data type.
For example, a window can be displayed to request the user to select screen display schemes
to be used during enlargement/reduction of specialized user data.
Alternatively, the user data determiner 123 can be set to automatically identify
the type of user data such as a character or emoticon. For example, if an emoticon is input,
the user data determiner 123 identifies the emoticon and transmits the emoticon type to the
controller 101. The controller 101 then controls screen display of the emoticon according to
a preset display scheme so that the emoticon is not deformed during enlargement/reduction.
If the display unit 119 of the portable terminal includes a touch screen,
displayed user data can be enlarged/reduced through the display unit 119. The user generates
events for enlargement/reduction of user data displayed on the display unit 119 through
presS1ng function keys, and touches or drags a deS1red area of the display unit 119 to
enlarge/reduce the corresponding user data.
FIG. 2 illustrates a series of character S1ze adjustment operations in the
portable terminal of FIG. 1. Display screen representations of FIG. 2 illustrate character
enlargement operations involving screen movement in viewing, such as a text message to be
transmitted or received through an SMS service.
In FIG. 2, during display of an initial screen 210, when a key event for
enlargement is input from the user, the portable terminal enlarges characters on the screen
210 by a ratio, and displays one of screens 220, 240 and 260 with enlarged characters
depending upon preset display mode settings.
In an enlargement mode of the screen 220, characters of a line outS1de the
screen width due to enlargement are sequentially moved to the next line. The user can view
those characters out of the display area through scrolling operations by presS1ng function keys
of the portable terminal.
For example, if the user presses a scroll key, the portable terminal scrolls the
screen downwards and displays the characters out of the display area on a new screen 230.

Movement between the screens 220 and 230 is adaptively performed according to scroll up
and down operations.
In an enlargement mode of the screen 240, characters of a line outS1de the
screen width due to enlargement are sequentially moved to the next line, and those characters
out of the display area are moved to a new screen page. The user can view the characters out
of the display area through page up and down operations by presS1ng function keys of the
portable terminal.
For example, if the user presses a page down key, the portable terminal moves
from the screen 240 to the next page (a screen 250) to display the characters out of the
display area. Movement between the screens 240 and 250 is adaptively performed according
to page up and down operations.
In an enlargement mode of the screen 260, characters outS1de the display area
due to enlargement can be viewed through screen movement operations by presS1ng function
keys of the portable terminal.
For example, if the user presses screen up/down/left/right keys, the portable
terminal moves from the screen 260 to a screen 270 to display characters out of the display
area. Movement between the screens 260 and 270 is adaptively performed according to
screen up/down/left/right operations.
In FIG. 2, the name of a service category in a menu, such as 'text message', is
enlarged or moved along characters on the screen in response to corresponding events, it may
also be fixed without change depending upon display mode settings. In data enlargement or
screen movement, displayed menu item names are changed according to types or formats of
user data displayed on the screen.
FIG. 3 illustrates another series of character S1ze adjustment operations in the
portable terminal of FIG. 1. Display screen representations of FIG. 3 illustrate character
reduction operations involving screen movement in viewing, for example, a text message to
be transmitted or received through an SMS service.
In FIG. 3, during display of an initial screen 310, when a key event for
reduction is input from the user, the portable terminal reduces characters on the screen 310 by
a ratio, and displays screen 320 or 360 with reduced characters depending upon preset display
mode settings.

In a reduction mode of the screen 320, arrangement of user data in the initial
screen 310 is retained irrespective of reduction. Reduction of characters in the screen 320
may result in screen 330, 340 or 350 depending upon the display mode settings.
In the screen 330, characters are reduced with respect to the upper left end of
the display unit of the portable terminal. In the screen 340, characters are reduced with
respect to the upper central end of the display unit.. In the screen 350, characters are reduced
with respect to the center of the display unit.
According to an exemplary implementation, instances of the center of
reduction in reduction of displayed user data are given above for the purpose of illustration.
However, the center of reduction may also be set to various locations of the display unit, for
example lower left end, middle left end, lower central end, upper right end, middle right and
lower right end according to user preferences.
Movement between the screens 330, 340 and 350 is adaptively performed
according to screen movement operations initiated by function keys input from the user.
In a reduction mode of the screen 360, arrangement of user data differs from
that of the initial screen 310. That is, characters of the initial screen 310 are rearranged to fill
lines of the screen in sequence from the beginning (automatic line rearrangement), as shown
in the screen 360. Blank characters inserted by the user for performing functions such as
spacing words are preserved in this rearrangement.
Although in FIG. 3 the name of a service category in a menu, for example
'text message', is reduced or moved relative to characters on the screen in response to
corresponding events, it may also be fixed without change depending upon display mode
settings. In data reduction or screen movement, displayed menu item names are changed
according to types or formats of user data displayed on the screen.
FIG. 4 illustrates another series of character S1ze adjustment operations in the
portable terminal of FIG. 1. Display screen representations of FIG. 4 illustrate character
enlargement and reduction operations involving screen movement in response to key events
in viewing, for example, a text message to be transmitted or received through an SMS service.
In particular, characters of a line outS1de the screen width due to enlargement are sequentially
moved to the next line, and those characters out of the display area can be viewed through
scrolling operations.

In FIG. 4, during display of an initial screen 410, when a key event for
enlargement is input from the user, the portable terminal enlarges characters on the screen
410 by a enlargement ratio, and displays a screen 420 with enlarged characters. Various
values may be given to the enlargement ratio depending upon display mode settings.
For example, if the enlargement ratio is set to 1.5, characters in the screen are
enlarged 1.5 times in response to a key event for enlargement. If the enlargement ratio is set
to 2, characters in the screen are enlarged two times in response to a key event for
enlargement. In an exemplary embodiment of the present invention, the enlargement ratio
may be set to any value within an enlargement range that the portable terminal supports, for
example 1.5, 2, 3 and 4.
When the enlargement ratio is set to 2, characters in the screen are enlarged
two times in response to a key event for enlargement, then the enlarged characters are
enlarged another two times in response to another key event for enlargement. For example, if
a key event for enlargement occurs during display of the screen 420, enlarged characters of
the screen 420 are enlarged once again by an enlargement ratio corresponding to the previous
enlargement ratio, as shown in a screen 430. Enlargement ratios between corresponding
succesS1ve key events for enlargement are kept constant.
According to display mode settings, enlargement ratios between
corresponding succesS1ve key events for enlargement may also be varied, for example, in
order of 1.5, 2 and 3 or in order of 2, 4 and 6.
When a key event for reduction occurs during display of the screen 430,
characters are reduced by a ratio as shown in the screen 420. When a key event for reduction
occurs during display of the screen 420, characters are reduced by a ratio as shown in the
screen 410. S1ze reduction steps correspond in reverse order to S1ze enlargement steps.
In addition, during display of an initial screen 410, when a key event for
reduction is input from the user, the portable terminal reduces characters on the screen 410 by
a reduction ratio, and displays a screen 440 with reduced characters. Various values may be
given to the reduction ratio depending upon display mode settings.
For example, if the reduction ratio is set to 2/3, characters in the screen are
reduced by 2/3 in response to a key event for reduction. If the reduction ratio is set to 1/2,
characters in the screen are reduced by 1/2 in response to a key event for reduction. In an

exemplary embodiment ofthe present invention, the reduction ratio may be set to any value
within a reduction range that the portable terminal supports, for example 2/3, 1/2, 1/3 and 1/4.
When the reduction ratio is set to 1/2, characters in the screen are reduced by
1/2 in response to a key event for reduction, then the reduced characters are reduced by
another 1/2 in response to another key event for reduction. For example, if a key event for
reduction occurs during display of the screen 440, reduced characters of the screen 440 are
reduced once again by a reduction ratio corresponding to the previous reduction ratio, as
shown in a screen 450. Reduction ratios between corresponding succesS1ve key events for
reduction are kept constant.
According to display mode settings, reduction ratios between corresponding
succesS1ve key events for reduction may also be varied, for example, in order of 2/3, 1/2 and
1/3.
When a key event for enlargement occurs during display of the screen 450,
characters are enlarged by a ratio as illustrated in the screen 440. When a key event for
enlargement occurs during display of the screen 440, characters are enlarged by a ratio as
illustrated in the screen 410. S1ze enlargement steps correspond in reverse order to S1ze
reduction steps.
As described above in relation to FIG. 4, if a key event for enlargement is
input through a function key such as the volume up key, during display of a screen, user data
displayed on the screen is enlarged.. If the volume up key is input during display of the
screen, the enlarged user data is enlarged once again. Also, if a key event for reduction is
input through a function key, for example the volume down key, during display of a screen,
user data displayed on the screen is reduced. If the volume down key is input during display
of the screen, the reduced user data is reduced once again.
During display of enlarged or reduced user data on the screen 430 or screen
450, the screen 430 or screen 450 directly returns to the initial screen 410 through a S1ngle
key event. That is, the screen 430 or screen 450 that is created by enlargement or reduction
corresponding to one or more key events can directly return to the initial screen 410 in
response to a key event for return without repeated enlargement or reduction.
A function key such as the cancel key, is mapped to the key event of returning
to the initial screen. When the cancel key is input during display of enlarged or reduced user
data on a screen, the screen directly returns to the initial non-enlarged and non-reduced

screen, In addition, if the set enlargement or reduction ratio deviates from an allowed
enlargement or reduction range, the screen may automatically return to the initial screen.
Although not shown in FIG. 4, if the display unit of the portable terminal
includes a touch screen, displayed user data can be enlarged/reduced through the
corresponding touch screen capability. The user activates the enlargement/reduction mode
through a function key, then touches a deS1red area uS1ng the touch screen capability or
performs a drag operation to enlarge/reduce corresponding user data.
For example, user data displayed on the screen can be enlarged through a drag
operation from the upper left end to the lower right end of the screen, or be reduced through a
drag operation from the lower right end to the upper left end of the screen.
In user data enlargement/reduction according to an exemplary embodiment of
the present invention as illustrated in FIG. 4, the type of displayed user data is identified and
the user data is enlarged or reduced based on the identified type. For example, if currently
displayed user data is identified to be an emoticon, the user data is enlarged or reduced in a
manner relevant to the emoticon type data. For specialized user data such as an emoticon that
may be deformed in the process of enlargement or reduction, the type of displayed user data
is identified in advance and used to control enlargement/reduction of the user data and
subsequent screen movement so as not to deform, the displayed user data.
FIG. 5 illustrates a series of menu S1ze adjustment operations in the portable
terminal of FIG. 1. FIG. 5 illustrates steps to enlarge and reduce a particular menu of a user
interface in response to key events, hi particular, user data (menu items) outS1de the display

initiated by function keys.
In FIG. 5, during display of an initial menu screen 510, when, a key event for
enlargement is input from the user, the portable terminal enlarges menu items on the screen
510 by a enlargement ratio, and displays a screen 520 with enlarged menu items. Various
values may be given to the enlargement ratio depending upon display mode settings.
When a key event for reduction occurs during display of a screen 530, menu
items are reduced by a ratio as shown in the screen 520. When a key event for reduction
occurs during display of the screen 520, menu items are reduced by a ratio as shown in the
screen 510. S1ze reduction steps correspond in reverse order to S1ze enlargement steps.

In addition, during display of an initial screen 510, when a key event for
reduction is input from the user, the portable terminal reduces menu items on the screen 510
by a reduction ratio, and displays a screen 540 with reduced menu items. Various values may
be given to the reduction ratio depending upon display mode settings.
When a key event for enlargement occurs during display of a screen 550,
menu items are enlarged by a ratio as shown in the screen 540. When a key event for
enlargement occurs during display of the screen 540, menu items are enlarged by a ratio as
shown in the screen 510. S1ze enlargement steps correspond in reverse order to S1ze
reduction steps.
Depending upon display mode settings, in a state in which a menu item on
which the cursor is located is selected and highlighted as the center of enlargement or
reduction, when a key event for enlargement or reduction occurs, menu items on the screen
are enlarged or reduced with respect to the selected menu item. That is, a deS1red center of
enlargement or reduction can be specified for user convenience.
As described above, the data enlargement/reduction method of an exemplary
embodiment of the present invention is applied to user data composed of character data
utilized in, for example, an SMS, MMS or menu service. The data enlargement/reduction
method can also be applied to multimedia data such as images and moving pictures as

FIG. 8 is a flow chart illustrating a method to enlarge or reduce displayed user
data in response to key events for the portable terminal of FIG. 1.
Referring to FIG. 8, the portable terminal displays requested user data on the
screen (S801) and determines whether a key event is input from the user (S803). The user
data includes all kinds of data that may be handled by the portable terminal, such as
multimedia data including menus, images and moving pictures, character data related to text
messages transmitted/received through SMS or MMS services, and communication data
related to electronic mails.
If a key event is input at step S803, the portable terminal determines whether
or not the input key event is a request for enlargement/reduction (S805).
If a key event other than an enlargement or reduction event is input at step
S803, the portable terminal performs an operation associated with the input key event (S807).
For example, if an SMS function is requested for text message transmisS1on, the portable
terminal runs a corresponding application and displays a text input window through the
display unit.
If the input key event is determined to be a request for enlargement or
reduction at step S805, the portable terminal enlarges or reduces the user data displayed on
the screen by an enlargement or reduction ratio set in advance depending upon the input key
event (S809).
FIGS. 9A and 9B are flow charts illustrating detailed steps of the method of
FIG. 8.
Referring to FIGS. 9A and 9B, the portable terminal initially displays
requested user data on the screen (S901), and determines whether a key event is input through

the key input unit from the user (S903). The user data includes all kinds of data that can be
displayed on the screen, such as text data transmitted or received through an SMS function.
If a key event is input at step S903, the portable terminal determines whether
an enlargement/reduction mode is set for enlargement or reduction of displayed user data
(S905).
If the enlargement/reduction mode is not set, the portable terminal performs an
operation associated with the input key event (S907). For example, if a multimedia related
operation for image search is requested, the portable terminal runs a corresponding
application and displays an image search window through the display unit.
If the enlargement/reduction mode is set at step S905, the portable terminal
identifies whether the input key event is a request for enlargement or reduction (S909).
The portable terminal determines whether the input key event is a request for
user data enlargement (S911). If the input key event is a request for enlargement, the
portable terminal enlarges the displayed user data by a preset enlargement ratio (S913). If the
input key event is not a request for enlargement, the portable terminal determines whether the
input key event is a request for reduction (S915). If the input key event is a request for
reduction, the portable terminal reduces the displayed user data at a preset reduction ratio
(S917). Specific methods of displaying user data after enlargement or reduction are
described below.
After user data enlargement at step S913 or reduction at step S917, the
portable terminal determines whether a new key event is input from the user (S919). If a new
key event is input, the portable terminal determines whether the input key event is a request
for enlargement or reduction (S921).
If the input key event is a request for enlargement or reduction, the portable
terminal enlarges or reduces the displayed user data by a preset enlargement or reduction
ratio (S923), and returns to step S919 for further event procesS1ng. The user data displayed
on the screen is enlarged at step S913 or reduced at step S917 and further enlarged or reduced
at step S923. The enlargement and reduction ratios at step S923 correspond to those at steps
S913 and S917.
If the input key event is not a request for enlargement or reduction at step
S921, the portable terminal determines whether the input key event is a request for screen
movement (S925). If the input key event is a request for screen movement, the portable

terminal moves the screen in a requested direction according to display mode settings (S927):
Specific methods of screen movement after user data enlargement or reduction are described
later.
If the input key event is not a request for screen movement at step S925, the
portable terminal determines whether the input key event is a request for a screen change
(S929). If the input key event is a request for a screen change, the portable terminal displays
a previous or next page on the screen (S931). The S1ze of user data displayed on the screen
after a screen change corresponds to that of displayed user data before a screen change.
If the input key event is not a request for a screen change at step S929, the
portable terminal determines whether the input key event is a request for termination of the
enlargement/reduction mode (S933). If the input key event is a request for termination of the
enlargement/reduction mode, then the method ends, otherwise the portable terminal performs
step S907 for performance of a requested operation.
Although not shown in FIGS. 9A and 9B, the portable terminal preferably
restores, in response to a key event for return, the initially displayed user data on the screen
directly from enlarged or reduced user data.
FIG. 10 is a flow chart illustrating steps to display user data according to
preset data display formats.
Referring to FIG. 10, the portable terminal determines whether an
enlargement/reduction request to enlarge or reduce displayed user data is input (S1 001). If an
enlargement/reduction request is input, the portable terminal identifies a data display format
set in advance (S1003).
If the data display format is set as non-rearrangeable, the portable terminal
enlarges or reduces user data displayed on the screen by a enlargement/reduction ratio
without rearrangement of the user data (S1007).
If the data display format is set as rearrangeable, the portable terminal enlarges
or reduces user data displayed on the screen by a enlargement/reduction ratio with
rearrangement of the user data (S1011). Automatic line rearrangement is utilized at step
S1011. For example, in enlargement, characters or images of a line outS1de the screen width
due to enlargement are sequentially moved to the next line. In reduction, characters or
images on the screen are rearranged so as to fill lines of the screen in sequence from the
beginning.

FIG. 11 is a flow chart illustrating steps to move.the screen according to preset
screen movement schemes.
[00140] Referring to FIG. 11, the portable terminal initially determines whether a key
event for screen movement is input (S1 101). If screen movement is requested, the portable
terminal identifies a screen movement scheme set in advance (S1 103).
If the screen movement scheme is set to screen-scroll, the portable terminal
scrolls the screen up or down depending upon the input key event (S1 107).
If the screen movement scheme is set to cursor movement, the portable
terminal moves the cursor displayed on the screen in an upward/downward/left/right direction
depending upon the input key event (S1ll 1).
If the screen movement scheme is set to page up/down, the portable terminal
displays the previous page or next page depending upon the input key event (S1 115).
FIG. 12 is a flow chart illustrating a method to adjust S1zes of characters
during text message transmisS1on and reception uS1ng the portable terminal of FIG. 1.
Referring to FIG. 12, the portable terminal displays a requested window
containing character data on the screen (S1201), and determines whether a key event is input
from the user (S1203). The displayed window is a character window for sending or receiving
text data through SMS, MMS or data communication services.
If a key event is input at step S1203, the portable terminal determines whether
an enlargement/reduction mode is set for enlargement or reduction of displayed character
data (S1205). The character data includes any type of data that can be displayed on the
character window, such as text message data transmitted or received through an SMS
function.
If the enlargement/reduction mode is not set, the portable terminal performs an
operation associated with the input key event (S1207). For example, if a text message
transmisS1on is requested, the portable terminal runs a corresponding application and displays
a text message transmisS1on window.
If the enlargement/reduction mode is set at step S1205, the portable terminal
identifies a data display format set in advance (S1209).
If the data display format is set as rearrangeable (S1211), the portable terminal
enlarges or reduces character data displayed on the screen by an associated
enlargement/reduction ratio while rearranging the character data through automatic line

rearrangement within the S1ze of the screen (S1213). If some characters are outS1de the
display area due to enlargement, a scroll marker or other indicator is displayed to inform of
the presence of a next page.
If the data display format is set as non-rearrangeable, the portable terminal
enlarges or reduces character data displayed on the screen by an associated
enlargement/reduction ratio without rearrangement of the character data (S1215).
If a new request for enlargement/reduction is input from the user after data
enlargement/reduction at step S1213 or step S1215, the enlarged or reduced character data is
enlarged or reduced once more by the corresponding enlargement/reduction ratio.
After data enlargement/reduction at step S1213 or step S1215, if screen
movement is requested (S1217), the portable terminal moves the screen according to the set
data display format (S1219). For example, if the data display format is set as rearrangeable,
the portable terminal moves the screen through scrolling or page up/down operations. If the
data display format is set as non-rearrangeable, the portable terminal moves the screen
through up/down/left/right cursor movement operations.
The method may further include a restoring step in which the portable terminal
restores, in response to a key event for return, the initially displayed character data on the
screen directly from the enlarged or reduced character data.
An exemplary embodiment of the present invention provides a display data
S1ze adjustment apparatus and method for a portable terminal wherein user data displayed on
