InputPanel.EnabledChanged Event

Occurs when the soft input panel (SIP) is enabled or disabled.

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

public event EventHandler EnabledChanged
/** @event */
public void add_EnabledChanged (EventHandler value)

/** @event */
public void remove_EnabledChanged (EventHandler value)

JScript supports the use of events, but not the declaration of new ones.

The EnabledChanged event occurs whenever the SIP is enabled or disabled, either programmatically or by the user. When this event occurs, you can determine whether the SIP is enabled or disabled and reposition or resize controls accordingly.

You can raise this event by changing the Enabled property.

The following code example uses the EnabledChanged event to lower the height of a tab control when the SIP is enabled and returns the tab control to its original height when the SIP is disabled. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the InputPanel component.

private void inputPanel1_EnabledChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
    if (inputPanel1.Enabled == false)
        // The SIP is disabled, so set the height of the tab control
        // to its original height with a variable (TabOriginalHeight),
        // which is determined during initialization of the form.
        VisibleRect = inputPanel1.VisibleDesktop;
        tabControl1.Height = TabOriginalHeight;
        // The SIP is enabled, so the height of the tab control
        // is set to the height of the visible desktop area.
        VisibleRect = inputPanel1.VisibleDesktop;
        tabControl1.Height = VisibleRect.Height;

    // The Bounds property always returns a width of 240 and a height of 80
    // pixels for Pocket PCs, regardless of whether or not the SIP is enabled.
    BoundsRect = inputPanel1.Bounds;

    // Show the VisibleDestkop and Bounds values
    // on the second tab for demonstration purposes.
    VisibleInfo.Text = String.Format("VisibleDesktop: X = {0}, " +
        "Y = {1}, Width = {2}, Height = {3}", VisibleRect.X,
        VisibleRect.Y, VisibleRect.Width, VisibleRect.Height);
    BoundsInfo.Text = String.Format("Bounds: X = {0}, Y = {1}, " +
        "Width = {2}, Height = {3}", BoundsRect.X, BoundsRect.Y,
        BoundsRect.Width, BoundsRect.Height);
