RECONVERTSTRING structure (imm.h)

Defines the strings for IME reconversion. It is the first item in a memory block that contains the strings for reconversion.

Syntax

typedef struct tagRECONVERTSTRING {
  DWORD dwSize;
  DWORD dwVersion;
  DWORD dwStrLen;
  DWORD dwStrOffset;
  DWORD dwCompStrLen;
  DWORD dwCompStrOffset;
  DWORD dwTargetStrLen;
  DWORD dwTargetStrOffset;
} RECONVERTSTRING, *PRECONVERTSTRING, *NPRECONVERTSTRING, *LPRECONVERTSTRING;

Members

dwSize

Size of this structure and the memory block it heads.

dwVersion

Version number. Must be 0.

dwStrLen

Length of the string that contains the composition string.

dwStrOffset

Offset from the start position of this structure.

dwCompStrLen

Length of the string that will be the composition string.

dwCompStrOffset

Offset of the string that will be the composition string.

dwTargetStrLen

Length of the string that is related to the target clause in the composition string.

dwTargetStrOffset

Offset of the target string.

Remarks

The dwCompStrOffset and dwTargetOffset members are the relative positions in dwStrOffset. For a Unicode IME, dwStrLen, dwCompStrLen, and dwTargetStrLen are TCHAR values, that is, character counts. The members dwStrOffset, dwCompStrOffset, and dwTargetStrOffset specify byte counts.

If an application starts the reconversion process by calling ImmSetCompositionString with SCS_SETRECONVERTSTRING and SCS_QUERYRECONVERTSTRING, the application must allocate the necessary memory for the RECONVERTSTRING structure as well as the composition string buffer. IME should not use this memory later. If IME starts the process, IME should allocate necessary memory for the structure and the composition string buffer.
