An Input Method Editor (IME) allows users to enter and edit Chinese, Japanese, and Korean characters. The IME is an essential component for writing Chinese, Japanese, and Korean scripts. These writing systems have more characters than can be encoded for a regular keyboard. The IMEs for these languages use sequences of base characters that describe an individual character or group of characters to allow you to enter a larger set of characters. Base characters can be component letters from Hangul syllables, phonetic components for Japanese Kanji characters, or various combinations for Chinese characters.

The following example shows how to set the value of a control's ImeMode property.

		this.InputLanguageChanged += new InputLanguageChangedEventHandler(languageChange);
	}
	private void languageChange(Object sender, InputLanguageChangedEventArgs e)
	{
		// If the input language is Japanese.
		// set the initial IMEMode to Katakana.
		if (e.InputLanguage.Culture.TwoLetterISOLanguageName.Equals("ja"))
		{
			rtb.ImeMode = System.Windows.Forms.ImeMode.Katakana;
		}
	}
