Input Method Framework

Documentation Contents
The input method framework enables all text editing components to receive Japanese, Chinese, or Korean text input through input methods. An input method lets users enter thousands of different characters using keyboards with far fewer keys. Typically a sequence of several characters needs to be typed and then converted to create one or more characters. Components can actively use the API to support the on-the-spot input style; otherwise the framework provides root-window style input as a fallback.

For general information about internationalizing applications, see the Internationalization documentation.
