For example, at the beginning of a movement, the user's finger/stylus ("object") touches the touchscreen at a particular position ("coming into proximity with the sensing element at a first position"). Further, the movement constitutes a path of the touchscreen ("along the sensing path of the sensing element"). When the user's finger/stylus touches the touchscreen, it generates capacitive Page 17 47 Claim 1 HP X360 15-br095ms couplings between the user's finger/stylus and the touchscreen ("the first capacitive couplings corresponding to the object. . ."). Examples of this touch functionality in the HP X360 15-br095ms include: (1) adjustment of settings using a slider bar (e.g., brightness in WindowsàSettingsàSystemàDisplay); (2) adjustment of settings using a drop-down list (e.g., screen and sleep timings in Windows-àSettingsàPower & sleep); and (3) adjustment of settings using a selection wheel (e.g., timer settings in WindowsàAlarms & ClockàTimeràEdit Timer).

For example, as discussed above, when the user's finger/stylus touches the touchscreen, a first capacitive coupling is formed between the user's finger/stylus and the touchscreen. As discussed Page 21 47 Claim 1 HP X360 15-br095ms above and shown in the above examples, the sensing element comprises a sensing path that comprises a length. Examples of the sensing path include: (1) the length of the slider bar (e.g., brightness in WindowsàSettingsàSystemàDisplay); (2) the length of the drop-down list (e.g., screen and sleep timings in Windows-àSettingsàPower & sleep); and (3) the length of the selection wheel (e.g., timer settings in WindowsàAlarms & ClockàTimeràEdit Timer). After the first capacitive couplings are formed between the user's finger/stylus and the touchscreen, the HP X360 15-br095ms receive one or more first signals indicating those capacitive couplings. For example, the HP X360 15-br095ms knows when and where the user's finger/stylus touches the touchscreen. The HP X360 15-br095ms receive one or more signals allowing it to register the user's finger/stylus touching the touchscreen. For example, the HP X360 15-br095ms have functionality that track touch and movement, including receiving information about the location, size, and movement of a touch occurring on the screen. This also includes information for the view or window in which the touch occurred, the location of the touch within the view or window, and the approximate radius of the touch. This also includes information about indicating when the touch occurred, and information about whether the touch began, moved, or ended.

Page 38 47 Claim 1 HP X360 15-br095ms For example, the initial value comprises a particular parameter value or setting that can be adjusted, and is associated with a range of parameter values, i.e., the range of adjustment. Further, the range of parameter values or settings is associated with the length of a sensing path and can be adjusted along the length of that path. Examples of the range of parameter values include: (1) the range of parameter values corresponding to the length of the slider bar (e.g., brightness in WindowsàSettingsàSystemàDisplay, minimum brightness to maximum brightness); (2) the range of possible items/selections in a drop-down list (e.g., screen and sleep timings in Windows-àSettingsàPower & sleep, e.g., 1 minute to never); and (3) the range of possible time settings (e.g., timer settings in WindowsàAlarms & ClockàTimeràEdit Timer, e.g., 0 minutes to 59 minutes). In each of these examples, the initial value of the parameter is associated with a range of parameter values because it falls within that range. Further, the range of parameter values is associated with the length of the sensing path. In each of these examples, the length of sensing path allows adjustment within the range of parameter values.

For example, the HP X360 15-br095ms include a particular parameter value or setting that can be adjusted, and is associated with a range of parameter values, i.e., the range of adjustment. Further, the range of parameter values or settings is associated with the length of a sensing path and can be adjusted along the length of that path.

For example, as discussed above, when the user's finger/stylus touches the touchscreen, a first capacitive coupling is formed between the user's finger/stylus and the touchscreen. As discussed Page 97 47 Claim 10 HP X360 15-br095ms above and shown in the above examples, the sensing element comprises a sensing path that comprises a length. Examples of the sensing path include: (1) the length of the slider bar (e.g., brightness in WindowsàSettingsàSystemàDisplay); (2) the length of the drop-down list (e.g., screen and sleep timings in Windows-àSettingsàPower & sleep); and (3) the length of the selection wheel (e.g., timer settings in WindowsàAlarms & ClockàTimeràEdit Timer). After the first capacitive couplings are formed between the user's finger/stylus and the touchscreen, the HP X360 15-br095ms receive one or more first signals indicating those capacitive couplings.

For example, as discussed above, when the user's finger/stylus touches the touchscreen, a first capacitive coupling is formed between the user's finger/stylus and the touchscreen. As discussed Page 192 47 Claim 19 HP X360 15-br095ms above and shown in the above examples, the sensing element comprises a sensing path that comprises a length. Examples of the sensing path include: (1) the length of the slider bar (e.g., brightness in WindowsàSettingsàSystemàDisplay); (2) the length of the drop-down list (e.g., screen and sleep timings in Windows-àSettingsàPower & sleep); and (3) the length of the selection wheel (e.g., timer settings in WindowsàAlarms & ClockàTimeràEdit Timer). After the first capacitive couplings are formed between the user's finger/stylus and the touchscreen, the HP X360 15-br095ms receive one or more first signals indicating those capacitive couplings. For example, the HP X360 15-br095ms knows when and where the user's finger/stylus touches the touchscreen. The HP X360 15-br095ms receive one or more signals allowing it to register the user's finger/stylus touching the touchscreen. For example, the HP X360 15-br095ms have functionality that track touch and movement, including receiving information about the location, size, and movement of a touch occurring on the screen. This also includes information for the view or window in which the touch occurred, the location of the touch within the view or window, and the approximate radius of the touch. This also includes information about indicating when the touch occurred, and information about whether the touch began, moved, or ended.

The HP X360 15-br095ms receive one or more first signals and determines the location where the user's finger/stylus touched the touchscreen ("the first position of the object along the sensing path"). For example, the HP X360 15-br095ms have functionality that track touch and movement, including receiving information about the location, size, and movement of a touch occurring on the screen.

Further, the range of parameter values or settings is associated with the length of a sensing path and can be adjusted along the length of that path. Examples of the range of parameter values include: (1) the range of parameter values corresponding to the length of the slider bar (e.g., brightness in WindowsàSettingsàSystemàDisplay, minimum brightness to maximum brightness); (2) the range of possible items/selections in a drop-down list (e.g., screen and sleep timings in Windows-àSettingsàPower & sleep, e.g., 1 minute to never); and (3) the range of possible time settings (e.g., timer settings in WindowsàAlarms & ClockàTimeràEdit Timer, e.g., 0 minutes to 59 minutes). In each of these examples, the initial value of the parameter is associated with a range of parameter values because it falls within that range. Further, the range of parameter values is associated with the length of the sensing path. In each of these examples, the length of sensing path allows adjustment within the range of parameter values.
