Examples

This C++ example implements an EN_SETFOCUS event handler for an Edit control, IDC_EDIT3. It first checks if an ITextInputPanel object, g_pTip, has been created. If it exists, it reports the values of several ITextInputPanel Interface properties to debug output using the TRACE macro.


void CCOMTIPDlg::OnEnSetFocusEdit3()
{
    if (NULL != g_pTip)
    {
		CorrectionMode mode;

		if (SUCCEEDED(g_pTip->get_CurrentCorrectionMode(&mode)))
        {
			TRACE("CurrentCorrectionMode: %d\n", mode);
		}

		InPlaceState state;

		if (SUCCEEDED(g_pTip->get_CurrentInPlaceState(&state)))
        {
			TRACE("CurrentInPlaceState: %d\n", state);
		}

		PanelInputArea area;

		if (SUCCEEDED(g_pTip->get_CurrentInputArea(&area)))
        {
			TRACE("CurrentInputArea: %d\n", area);
		}

		InteractionMode iMode;

		if (SUCCEEDED(g_pTip->get_CurrentInteractionMode(&iMode)))
        {
			TRACE("CurrentInteractionMode: %d\n", iMode);
		}

        RECT rect;

		if (SUCCEEDED(g_pTip->get_InPlaceBoundingRectangle(&rect)))
        {
	        TRACE("InPlaceBoundingRectangle.top: %d\n", rect.top);
	        TRACE("InPlaceBoundingRectangle.left: %d\n", rect.left);
	        TRACE("InPlaceBoundingRectangle.bottom: %d\n", rect.bottom);
	        TRACE("InPlaceBoundingRectangle.right: %d\n", rect.right);
        }

	    int nHeight;

		if (SUCCEEDED(g_pTip->get_PopDownCorrectionHeight(&nHeight)))
        {
	        TRACE("PopDownCorrectionHeight: %d\n", nHeight);
        }

	    if (SUCCEEDED(g_pTip->get_PopUpCorrectionHeight(&nHeight)))
        {
	        TRACE("PopUpCorrectionHeight: %d\n", nHeight);
        }

		if (SUCCEEDED(g_pTip->SetInPlacePosition(300, 300, CorrectionPosition_Bottom)))
		{
			TRACE("Call to SetInPlacePosition() succeeded.\n");
		}
		else
		{
			TRACE("Call to SetInPlacePosition() failed.\n");
		}
    }
    else
    {
        TRACE("ITextInputPanel object is NULL.\n");
    }
}
