Providing an overview of an object

Image Number 7 for United States Patent #8091037.

A request is received to display a first object in a graphical user interface (GUI) of a computer system containing several objects having more than one type, some of the several objects being associated with each other. An operation mode setting is accessed. In response to the request, an overview screen is displayed including a first GUI component presenting attributes of the first object, and at least one second GUI component, presenting information from at least a second one of the several objects associated with the first object, and configured to operate in (i) an auto load mode for automatically loading and presenting the information upon display, and (ii) a deferred load mode where the information is loaded and presented upon the user activating the second GUI component. The second GUI component uses one of the auto load mode and the deferred load mode based on the operation mode setting.
