Software-based Input Panel

Send Feedback

The Software-based Input Panel functionality in Microsoft® Windows® CE 5.0 allows target devices that do not have a keyboard to simulate keyboard input by using an input method (IM). Windows CE implements a software-based input panel (SIP) architecture that functions through a touch screen. This SIP architecture is an IM that enables an application to accommodate input in multiple forms. If you want to enhance the portability of target devices based on your OS design, you should consider including SIP functionality in your OS design instead of keyboard support. The functionality for selecting between one or more available SIPs is incorporated into the standard shell.
