Determines the behavior of the input method editor (IME).

Set ImeMode to configure the way an IME processes user keystrokes. An IME is a front-end input processor for Asian language characters. The IME hooks all keyboard input, converts it to Asian characters in a conversion window, and sends the converted characters or strings on to the application.

ImeMode allows a control to influence the type of conversion performed by the IME so that it is appropriate for the input expected by the control. For example, a control that only accepts numeric input might specify an ImeMode of imClose, as no conversion is necessary for numeric input.

Note: The value of ImeMode only takes effect when the control receives focus. To change the value of ImeMode when the control already has input focus, call the SetIme method.
