April 17, 2024
Rastersteuerelemente mit der Unterstützung für den Input Method Editor (IME) ermöglichen Benutzern das Generieren von Zeichen, die auf ihren Eingabegeräten nicht nativ verfügbar sind.

Auf Englisch weiterlesen:

An Input Method Editor (IME) facilitates the entry of complex characters and scripts not directly supported by standard keyboards, which is especially vital for languages with extensive character sets like Chinese, Japanese, and Korean. When integrated into a grid component, an IME enables users to input text directly into data cells using phonetic or syllabic methods that are converted into the desired characters. This integration streamlines the data entry process in applications requiring multi-language support, significantly enhancing usability and efficiency. It simplifies the development of applications targeting global markets by providing native language input support, thereby improving the user experience and reducing the need for external language input tools.

Several WinForms grid components offer Input Method Editor (IME) support, including:

  • DevExpress WinForms Data Grid (part of DevExpress WinForms) includes an IME which is enabled when an end-user switches the desktop key input to a supported language.
  • FlexGrid for WinForms (part of ComponentOne Studio WinForms by MESCIUS) offers built-in IME support, facilitating efficient entry of complex characters in diverse languages.
  • Telerik UI for WinForms GridView (part of Telerik UI for WinForms) integrates IME capabilities, enabling straightforward input of extensive multilingual character sets.
  • Infragistics WinDataGrid (part of Infragistics Ultimate UI for Windows Forms) also boasts input method editor support for effortless text input in globalized WinForms applications.
