Setting Context with the Context Tagging Tool

Setting Context with the Context Tagging Tool

Describes of how to use the Context Tagging tool in your application.

If your application is not ink-enabled, has been released to market, cannot be modified, or otherwise meets the requirements of the tool, consider using the Context Tagging tool to set contexts for your application.

The Context Tagging tool, which is included with the Microsoft® Windows® XP Tablet PC Edition Development Kit 1.7, provides a means for associating context with the fields in your compiled application. The Context Tagging tool persists the relationships between input scopes and fields and does so in an XML manifest file that is associated with the application. The XML manifest can then be redistributed to computers running your application. On computers running Windows XP Tablet PC Edition with Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2), the Tablet PC Input Panel looks for the manifest at run time. If the manifest is found, the context assignments for the application's fields are used by the Input Panel to improve recognition results. Applications that run on the earlier version of Windows XP Tablet PC Edition are not affected by the presence of a manifest.

For more information about the Context Tagging tool, see the documentation included with the tool in the Tablet PC SDK 1.7.
