InputPanel Constructor

Initializes a new instance of the InputPanel class for enabling and disabling the soft input panel (SIP).

Namespace: Microsoft.WindowsCE.Forms
Assembly: Microsoft.WindowsCE.Forms (in microsoft.windowsce.forms.dll)

public InputPanel ()
public InputPanel ()
public function InputPanel ()

To program the SIP, drag the InputPanel component from the ToolBox to your form.

A MainMenu component is required to use the InputPanel component. The Visual Studio 2005 designer automatically adds a MainMenu component to the Form1 class when you create a Pocket PC project, but not to forms you subsequently add to the project.

You do not have to add an InputPanel component to your application for users to display the SIP because the SIP icon is already available on the lower menu bar when you create a Windows-based application for the Pocket PC. You only need the InputPanel component when you want to programmatically control the SIP.
