Harlan,

This might be of interest to you as to the reason the TIP (Tablet Input Panel) does not function within PB4:
Tablet PC Input Panel depends on an application's support for caret tracking. Input Panel uses caret tracking events to determine which text input control has focus and can invoke Input Panel. However, Input Panel does not appear when a caret is not present or if caret events are not being accurately generated. This paper describes some caret tracking best practices for enabling Tablet PC Input Panel that appears next to text entry areas in the application. The information in this paper pertains only to Input Panel when it appears next to a text entry area.

Hi Bill,

Thanks for the link. The TIP does not work with PB4 and we are keenly aware of the reasons. Unfortunately it is not a simple issue to fix and we have not made any significant progress on it despite already having invested significant time working on it.

Thanks Harlan.  I'm glad to see that you are working on the issue.

BTW - Firefox would not allow TIP to function as well.  A plugin for FF solves this: http://geckotip.mozdev.org/  I do not know if this would have any relation to the issue within  PB4.

Thanks.

Bill

Release 5.0.0.9 enables the TIP to function in the search, thought creation, and thought renaming boxes.
