IInputMethod::GetInfo (Windows CE 5.0)

Send Feedback

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

HRESULT GetInfo( IMINFO* pimi);


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

Return Values

Return S_OK to indicate success. Return the appropriate HRESULT value to indicate failure.


The system calls this method for information about the IM. This includes flags indicating special properties of the IM, which are stored in an 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, the SipGetInfo function operates in a similar manner as this method; however, SipGetInfo is called by an application, and it returns information regarding the software-based input panel.


OS Versions: Windows CE 2.01 and later.
