Title: Screen display key input unit

Abstract: A screen display key input unit. A screen display has a series of keys which can be operated by touching with a pen, a mouse or the like. Each of the keys are defined with first and second graphic character codes. A key input device points out a key display area on the screen while a selection processor selects one of the two graphic character codes on the key by determining the difference of key selection operations of the key input. The two graphic character codes are defined on each of the keys so that the number of keys shown on the screen is reduced as compared to conventional unit where each key is defined with a single graphic character code.
