We have designed transflective liquid crystal display(LCD) associated with in-plane switching of a LC director driven by fringe-field, unlike other LCD mode. Reflective area consists of a λ/2 compensation film and a LC cell with retardation value(dΔn) of λ/4 with their optic axes making an angle of 15$^{\circ}$ and 75$^{\circ}$ against polarizer, respectively. In the transmissive area, top and bottom polarizers are parallel each other, an LC has a dΔn of λ/2, and another λ/2 compensation film is inserted between the LC cell and bottom polarizer. With the configuration, both devices show dark state initially. When an incident light is 550nm, the device shows wide-viewing-angle characteristics such that in the reflective area the contrast ratio target than 5 exists up to 55$^{\circ}$ of polar angle in all directions and in transmissive area it exists about 100$^{\circ}$ in vortical direction and 110$^{\circ}$ in horizontal direction.
