Method for presenting information on display devices of varying sizes

Image Number 6 for United States Patent #5848406.

A method for presenting information on display devices of varying sizes. The method processes a query of a database and determines which tables are most likely to contain information which the user wishes to primarily view. The join relationships between tables of the database are used to determine the priority for displaying tables. Those join relationships which were used more frequently in previous queries are accorded higher weight scores and correspondingly have a greater chance of being prioritized to be displayed on the computer screen. Also, a user may select a particular table to be focused upon. In that situation, the method displays not only the focused table but also the tables with a direct relationship to it.
