Input methods (IM) are tightly bonded to a related Input Method Editor (IME). Microsoft® Windows® CE provides two Traditional Chinese IMs, which are described in the following table. Other IMs can be created.

IMFile nameDescription
Phonetic Phonim.dllAllows phonetic input based on the Bopomofo standard. This is a sample IM with a soft keyboard that allows phonetic input. It is closely tied to the Phonetic IME. The source code is located in %_WINCEROOT%\Public\Common\Sdk\Samples\CHTIM\PHON.
Chang Jei Chajeiim.dllA sample IM with a soft keyboard that allows Chang Jei input and is closely tied to the Chang Jei IME. Allows input by radical. The source code is located in %_WINCEROOT%\Public\Common\Sdk\Samples\CHTIM\CHAJEI.
Handwriting Recognizer Engine (HWX)Hwxcht.dllA handwriting recognition engine for supporting user-drawn ideographs and characters. Platform Builder includes a sample UI named Mboxcht.
Mboxcht A sample IM for Chinese Traditional handwriting input that works with HWXCHT. The source code is located in %_WINCEROOT%\Public\Common\Sdk\Samples\Mboxcht.

When an IM is activated, it causes the associated IME to be activated also. However, the opposite is not true: activating an IME will not update the selected IM. For example, if a user uses the IME status window to change the current input mode from Chinese to English, the IME will be disabled, but the IM will not be disabled. To avoid this inconsistency, you can remove the IME status window from the IME UI module.
