Hi Alex

I assume you're talking about a SIP Input Method.

An application cannot change the position of an IM.

The Remark section of the SipSetInfo (http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms940341.aspx) stats:

"Use this function to set the software-based input panel information to accommodate the current IM by setting information in the SIPINFO structure such as the software-based input panel window position, size, and state. An application calling SipSetInfo cannot request that the software-based input panel window be resized. The size of the software-based input panel window is based on coordination between the software-based input panel and IM."

In addition - all IM's samples I have do hardcode the location of the IM.

Hope this helps

Michael

So, that is impossible to set the position in a CF program I have found an article to change the registry and make the SIP to float or not to float. That is not what I want but seems I can only set it the bottom of screen by force it not to float. Right
