Detailed Description

Provides the Qtopia InputMethod service.

The InputMethod service enables applications to adjust the input method that is being used on text entry fields.

The messages in this service are sent as ordinary QtopiaIpc messages on the QPE/InputMethod channel. The service is provided by the Qtopia server.

Normally applications won't need to send these messages directly, as they are handled by methods in the QtopiaApplication class.

See also QtopiaApplication and QtopiaIpcEnvelope.
