Programming the Text Input Panel
The following sections describe programming the Input Panel using the Text Input Panel application programming interfaces.
- TextInputPanel for Users of PenInputPanel
- Using Input Panel AutoComplete
- Enabling Text Correction for Custom Ink Collectors
The Text Input Panel is implemented in an executable file called TabTip.exe. Running TabTip.exe with the /SeekDesktop parameter attempts to run a reduced functionality version of Input Panel on a nonstandard interactive desktop, as created with CreateDesktop. For most created desktops, Input Panel will automatically run in this mode already. This parameter provides the means for launching it in unusual application scenarios that otherwise prevent the automatic launch. If Input Panel is already running on the desktop, this parameter will have no effect and the instance of TabTip.exe will exit immediately.
