This method is implemented to return information about the current input method (IM) to the operating system.

IMINFO *pimi);


  • pimi
    Pointer to an IMINFO structure. GetInfo passes most of its information to the operating system through this structure.

Return Values

An appropriate HRESULT value is returned.


The system calls this method for information about the IM. This includes flags indicating special properties of the IM, which are stored in a IMINFO structure. This structure contains the handles of the two image lists containing the masked bitmaps that are displayed on the Input Panel button, the indexes into the specified image lists, and a rectangle indicating the preferred size and placement of the IM.

On Windows CE for the Palm-size PC, the SipGetInfo function operates similar to this method; however, SipGetInfo is called by an application, and it returns information regarding the input panel.
