Gets or sets the Input Method Editor (IME) mode of the control.
Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)
An IME is a program that enables users to enter complex characters and symbols, such as Japanese Kanji characters, using a standard keyboard. The property is typically set to ImeMode.Off for a TextBox control that is intended to only enter numeric values. The 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.
The user can interactively change the unless it has been programmatically set to ImeMode.Disable. In this case, the user will not be able to use the IME.
The property is ignored on Windows 8 when the global input mode is in effect. For more info, see Switch Text Input Changed from Per-Thread to Per-User.
