Setting the Input Method Editor Mode on a Control or List Column

An input method editor (IME) is an editor that allows you to enter complex characters directly from the keyboard. For example, the characters in an Asian language. Several IME input modes handle different types of characters. For example, the Microsoft Windows Japanese IMEs include Hiragana, Katakana, English, Double-width English, and so forth. You create a control or list column user property in Siebel Tools to set the IME mode for a control or list column.

NOTE:  You can only use the input method editor in high interactivity. You cannot use the input method editor in standard interactivity. For more information, see About Standard Interactivity and High Interactivity.

To set the input method editor mode on a control or list column

  1. In Siebel Tools, make sure the Control User Prop and List Column User Prop object types are displayed.

    For more information, see Displaying Object Types You Use to Configure Siebel CRM.

  2. Click Applet in the Object Explorer.
  3. In the Applets list, locate the applet you must modify.
  4. In the Object Explorer, expand the Applet tree, and then do one of the following:
    • Click Control
    • Expand the List tree, and then click List Column.
  5. In the Controls or List Columns list, locate the control or list column you must modify.
  6. In the Object Explorer, expand the Control or List Column tree, and then choose Control User Prop or List Columns User Prop.
  7. In the Control User Props list or in the List Columns User Props list, add the required records.

    The following table lists the values for several example records.





    E0010411:Full-Width Katakana


    E0010411:Half-Width Katakana


    E0010411:Full-Width Ascii


    E0010411:Half-Width Ascii





    This setting can be useful for a field that must only contain numeric data, such as a phone number. In this situation, you can restrict the data the user enters to only numeric characters.

    The code for the IME version varies. For example, a Microsoft Windows IME uses the following code:


    IME 2000


    IME 2002


    IME 2003


    IME 2007


  8. Compile and test your changes.
