This feature is non-standard and is not on a standards track. Do not use it on production sites facing the Web: it will not work for every user. There may also be large incompatibilities between implementations and the behavior may change in the future.
In Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer 11, the
-ms-ime-align CSS property aligns the Input Method Editor (IME) candidate window box relative to the element on which the IME composition is active.
/* Keyword values */ -ms-ime-align: auto; -ms-ime-align: after;
IME candidate lists are positioned on the screen with sufficient size to allow basic text input. In some cases, the IME may enforce a reasonable minimum size.
In the case of
-ms-ime-align: after, an IME might adjust the candidate window and keyboard input behavior to provide a better user experience, such as using a horizontal candidate list and allowing some keys to be sent to the app for suggestion list navigation.
-ms-ime-align is specified as one of the following keyword values.
- Initial value. The IME may align the candidate window in any manner.
- The IME should attempt to align the candidate window below the element (in left-to-right and right-to-left layouts).
This property is not part of any specification.
