IME (Input Method Editor)

IME is an abbreviation of Input Method Editor. IME allows any data, such as keyboard strokes or mouse movements, to be received as input. In this way users can enter characters and symbols not found on their input devices.

IME is obligatory for languages such as Japanese, Chinese and Korean. The FlexGrid control supports IME through its imeEnabled property. For example, the grid below has imeEnabled set to true. If you set the keyboard language to Japanese or Chinese and enable IME, the grid will honor that setting and will allow you to edit cells using the selected IME mode by typing directly into the cells.

There is a limitation with the behavior of the keyboard when switching between different input fields while using the IME keyboard. This limitation applies to our two types of editors: 'number' and 'text' cells. When using the Windows OS, if the IME is set to "Hiragana" for example, and a user enters it into a numeric cell, the IME will automatically switch to half-width alphanumeric mode. This behavior is designed to ensure consistency in input, as numeric cells typically require alphanumeric characters. Additionally, even if the user returns to the cell where hiragana was originally entered, the IME does not automatically switch back to hiragana mode. On the Mac OS, when the IME is set to "Hiragana" and a user enters it into a numeric cell, the IME will not change. It will remain in hiragana mode regardless of the content entered into the cell.
