Input Window Areas

Three separate areas of an application subwindow are used in entering characters. These areas are typically displayed, named, and used as follows:


Preedit Area

The preedit area is a reverse video highlighted area that displays characters as they are entered or converted. It holds formations of characters before they are committed to the application, that is, before they are put in the text block being assembled for the application.

Status Area

The status area shows what the current input conversion mode is. Several modes are available, as discussed in following sections.

Lookup Choice Area

The lookup choice area is a popup that displays multiple Hanja or special character choices available for conversion of character(s) in the preedit area.
