ITextInputPanel::get_DefaultInputArea method

[ITextInputPanel is available for use in the operating systems specified in the Requirements section. It may be altered or unavailable in subsequent versions. Instead, use IInputPanelConfiguration.

]

Gets or sets the default input area as specified by the PanelInputArea Enumeration.

This property is read/write.

Syntax

HRESULT get_DefaultInputArea(
  PanelInputArea *Area
);

Parameters

Area

Return Value

None

Remarks

The system default is PanelInputArea_Auto, except in password fields where the system default is PanelInputArea_Keyboard. Setting the default input area overrides the system default in all cases, except when an input area is unavailable because the current recognizer does not support that mode or because there is no recognizer for the current input language.

Examples

This C++ example creates an ITextInputPanel object, g_pTip, and attaches it to the window handle of an InkEdit control, IDC_EDIT3, by setting the ITextInputPanel::AttachedEditWindow Property property. It also sets, then gets the ITextInputPanel::DefaultInputArea Property.
