WM_IME_CHAR Overview  Group

The WM_IME_CHAR message is sent to an application when the IME gets a character of the conversion result. Unlike the WM_CHAR message, this message can include double-byte as well as single-byte character values.

chCharCode1 = (TCHAR) wParam;
chCharCode2 = (TCHAR) wParam>>8;
lKeyData = lParam;


chCharCode1 and chCharCode2
Single- or double-byte character value.
Repeat count, scan code, extended-key flag, context code, previous key-state flag, and transition-state flag, as shown following:



0 - 15

Repeat count: Since the first byte and second byte is continuous, this is always 1.

16 - 23

Scan Code: Scan code for complete a FE character.

24 - 28

Not used.


Context code.


Conversion state.


If the WM_IME_CHAR message includes a double-byte character, the DefWindowProc function converts this message into two WM_CHAR messages, each containing one byte of the double-byte character.
