Control.ImeMode Property

Gets or sets the Input Method Editor (IME) mode of the control.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)
public ImeMode ImeMode { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Forms.ImeMode
One of the ImeMode values. The default is Inherit.
ExceptionCondition
InvalidEnumArgumentException

The assigned value is not one of the ImeMode enumeration values.

An IME is a program that enables users to enter complex characters and symbols, such as Japanese Kanji characters, using a standard keyboard. The ImeMode property is typically set to ImeMode.Off for a TextBox control that is intended to only enter numeric values. The ImeMode property value is set to ImeMode.NoControl for the Form class.

Most classes that do not directly support Input Method Editors, or allow direct input from an IME, will set the value of this property to NoControl.

Important noteImportant Note:

The user can interactively change the ImeMode unless it has been programmatically set to ImeMode.Disable. In this case, the user will not be able to use the IME.
