A display unit having a display panel, and a touch panel disposed on a display surface of the display panel for detecting a position touched by indicating means, said touch panel permitting an operator to touch a touch-driven member displayed on said display surface to handle said touch-driven member, said display unit comprising:

  • sensing means for sensing a pushing force P produced by said indicating means when said indicating means touches said touch-driven member; and

    a control unit for performing first processing associated with said touch-driven member pushed by the indicating means when the pushing force P detected by said sensing means is equal to or larger than a first set pressure P1 and smaller than a second set pressure P2 (P1<

    =P<

    P2), said second set pressure P2 being larger than said first set pressure P1, and for performing second processing associated with said touch-driven member pushed by said indicating means when the pushing force P is equal to or larger than the second set pressure P2 (P2<

    =P), wherein said first processing includes dragging said touch-driven member following said indicating means pursuant to a movement of said indicating means, and said second processing includes activating a processing previously assigned to said touch-driven member.
