The IMN_OPENCANDIDATE message is sent to the application when an IME is about to open the candidate window. An application should process this message if it displays candidates itself. The application can retrieve a list of candidates to display by using the ImmGetCandidateList function. The application receives this notification message through the WM_IME_NOTIFY message.

fCandidate = (DWORD) lParam;


Candidate lists flag. Each bit corresponds to a candidate list: bit 0 to the first list, bit 1 to the second, and so on. If a specified bit is 1, the corresponding candidate window is about to be opened.

Return Values

No return value.


By default, the IME window creates a candidate window when it processes this message.
