Remarks

ITextInputPanel Interface gives application developers more control and information about Input Panel's state than PenInputPanel Class. ITextInputPanel Interface replaces the PenInputPanel Class as the preferred mechanism for programmatically interacting with the Input Panel.

ITextInputPanel Interface provides:

  • A complete control over the positioning of the in-place Input Panel when the application has focus.
  • An access to the ink objects from the Input Panel text insertion in addition to the recognized text.
  • A set of properties that correspond exactly to Input Panel's capabilities giving both the ability to know Input Panel's current state and to customize Input Panel's configuration.
The ITextInputPanel Interface continues to provide nearly all of the programmatic capabilities of the PenInputPanel Class thus superseding the PenInputPanel Class.
