Smart Device Functions:
coredll is for smart devices, not desktop Windows. Therefore, this information only applies to code using the .NET Compact Framework. To see if information for sipshowim in other DLLs exists, click on Find References to the right.
Declare Function SipShowIM Lib "coredll.dll" (ByVal dwFlag As Short) As Short
Alternative Managed API:
There's the InputPanel control.
private void ShowSIP (bool showIt)
inputPanel.Enabled = showIt;
private void ToggleSIP ()
inputPanel.Enabled = !inputPanel.Enabled;
Main benefit of using this over the InputPanel is that there is no control to instantiate in the form initialization process. The main drawback is that you do not have access to the InputPanel.Bounds property. C++ TRUE indicates success. When this function fails, it returns an HRESULT error code.
Tips & Tricks:
Please add some!
const int SIPF_ON = 1;
const int SIPF_OFF = 0;
public int ShowSIP(Boolean ShowIt)
SipShowIM( ShowIt ? SIPF_ON : SIPF_OFF);
