IMN_OPENCANDIDATE

Parameters

wParam

Return Value

This command has no return value.

Remarks

An application should process this command if it displays candidates itself. The application can retrieve a list of candidates to display by using the ImmGetCandidateList function.

By default, the IME window creates a candidate window when it processes this command.
