Control.DefaultImeMode Property


Gets the default Input Method Editor (IME) mode supported by the control.

 virtual property System::Windows::Forms::ImeMode DefaultImeMode { System::Windows::Forms::ImeMode get(); };
protected virtual System.Windows.Forms.ImeMode DefaultImeMode { get; }
member this.DefaultImeMode : System.Windows.Forms.ImeMode
Protected Overridable ReadOnly Property DefaultImeMode As ImeMode

Property Value

One of the ImeMode values.


The following code example overrides the DefaultImeMode property to turn off the Input Method Editor.

   property System::Windows::Forms::ImeMode DefaultImeMode 
      virtual System::Windows::Forms::ImeMode get() override
         // Disable the IME mode for the control.
         return ::ImeMode::Off;

protected override ImeMode DefaultImeMode
      // Disable the IME mode for the control.
      return ImeMode.Off;
Protected Overrides ReadOnly Property DefaultImeMode() As ImeMode
      ' Disable the IME mode for the control.
      Return ImeMode.Off
   End Get
End Property


An Input Method Editor (IME) is a program that enables users to enter complex characters and symbols, such as Japanese Kanji characters, by using a standard keyboard.

As implemented in the Control class, this property always returns the ImeMode.Inherit value. The Inherit value specifies that the IME mode is inherited from the parent control.

Notes to Inheritors

When overriding the DefaultImeMode property in a derived class, use the base class's DefaultImeMode property to extend the base implementation. Otherwise, you must provide all the implementation.
