/**
* An nsITextInputProcessor instance is associated with a top level widget which
* handles native IME. It's associated by calling beginInputTransaction() or
* beginInputTransactionForTests(). While an instance has composition, nobody
* can steal the rights to make composition on the top level widget. In other
* words, if another instance is composing on a top level widget, either
* beginInputTransaction() or beginInputTransactionForTests() returns false
* (i.e., not throws an exception).
*
* NOTE: See nsITextInputProcessorCallback.idl for examples of |callback| in
* following examples,
*
* Example #1 JS-IME can start composition like this:
*
* var TIP = Components.classes["@mozilla.org/text-input-processor;1"].
* createInstance(Components.interfaces.nsITextInputProcessor);
* if (!TIP.beginInputTransaction(window, callback)) {
* return; // You failed to get the rights to make composition
* }
* // Create a keyboard event if the following compositionc change is caused
* // by a key event.
* var keyEvent =
* new KeyboardEvent("", { key: "foo", code: "bar", keyCode: buzz });
* // Set new composition string first
* TIP.setPendingCompositionString("some-words-are-inputted");
* // Set clause information.
* TIP.appendClauseToPendingComposition(23, TIP.ATTR_RAW_CLAUSE);
* // Set caret position, this is optional.
* TIP.setCaretInPendingComposition(23);
* // Flush the pending composition
* if (!TIP.flushPendingComposition(keyEvent)) {
* // If it returns false, it fails to start composition.
* return;
* }
*
* Example #2 JS-IME can separate composition string to two or more clauses:
*
* // Create a keyboard event if the following compositionc change is caused
* // by a key event.
* var keyEvent =
* new KeyboardEvent("", { key: "foo", code: "bar", keyCode: buzz });
* // First, set composition string again
* TIP.setPendingCompositionString("some-words-are-inputted");
* // Then, if "are" is selected to convert, there are 3 clauses:
* TIP.appendClauseToPendingComposition(11, TIP.ATTR_CONVERTED_CLAUSE);
* TIP.appendClauseToPendingComposition(3, TIP.ATTR_SELECTED_CLAUSE);
* TIP.appendClauseToPendingComposition(9, TIP.ATTR_CONVERTED_CLAUSE);
* // Show caret at the beginning of the selected clause
* TIP.setCaretInPendingComposition(11);
* // Flush the pending composition. Note that if there is a composition,
* // flushPendingComposition() won't return false.
* TIP.flushPendingComposition(keyEvent);
*
* Example #3 JS-IME can commit composition with specific string with this:
*
* // Create a keyboard event if the following compositionc change is caused
* // by a key event.
* var keyEvent1 =
* new KeyboardEvent("", { key: "foo", code: "bar", keyCode: buzz });
* // First, there is a composition.
* TIP.setPendingCompositionString("some-words-directly-inputted");
* TIP.appendClauseToPendingComposition(28, TIP.ATTR_RAW_CLAUSE);
* TIP.flushPendingComposition(keyEvent1);
* // Create a keyboard event if the following commit composition is caused
* // by a key event.
* var keyEvent2 =
* new KeyboardEvent("", { key: "foo", code: "bar", keyCode: buzz });
* // This is useful when user selects a commit string from candidate list UI
* // which is provided by JS-IME.
* TIP.commitCompositionWith("selected-words-from-candidate-list", keyEvent2);
*
* Example #4 JS-IME can commit composition with the last composition string
* without specifying commit string:
*
* // Create a keyboard event if the following compositionc change is caused
* // by a key event.
* var keyEvent1 =
* new KeyboardEvent("", { key: "foo", code: "bar", keyCode: buzz });
* // First, there is a composition.
* TIP.setPendingCompositionString("some-words-will-be-commited");
* TIP.appendClauseToPendingComposition(27, TIP.ATTR_RAW_CLAUSE);
* TIP.flushPendingComposition(keyEvent1);
* // Create a keyboard event if the following commit is caused by a key
* // event.
* var keyEvent2 =
* new KeyboardEvent("", { key: "Enter", code: "Enter",
keyCode: KeyboardEvent.DOM_VK_RETURN });
* // This is useful when user just type Enter key.
* TIP.commitComposition(keyEvent2);
*
* Example #5 JS-IME can cancel composition with this:
*
* // Create a keyboard event if the following composition change is caused
* // by a key event.
* var keyEvent1 =
* new KeyboardEvent("", { key: "foo", code: "bar", keyCode: buzz });
* // First, there is a composition.
* TIP.setPendingCompositionString("some-words-will-be-canceled");
* TIP.appendClauseToPendingComposition(27, TIP.ATTR_RAW_CLAUSE);
* TIP.flushPendingComposition(keyEvent1);
* // Create a keyboard event if the following canceling composition is
* // caused by a key event.
* var keyEvent2 =
* new KeyboardEvent("", { key: "Escape", code: "Escape",
keyCode: KeyboardEvent.DOM_VK_ESCAPE });
* // This is useful when user doesn't want to commit the composition.
* // FYI: This is same as TIP.commitCompositionWith("") for now.
* TIP.cancelComposition(keyEvent2);
*
* Example #6 JS-IME can insert text only with commitCompositionWith():
*
* // Create a keyboard event if the following inserting text is caused by a
* // key event.
* var keyEvent1 =
* new KeyboardEvent("", { key: "foo", code: "bar", keyCode: buzz });
* if (!TIP.beginInputTransaction(window, callback)) {
* return; // You failed to get the rights to make composition
* }
* TIP.commitCompositionWith("Some words", keyEvent1);
*
* Example #7 JS-IME can start composition explicitly:
*
* if (!TIP.beginInputTransaction(window, callback)) {
* return; // You failed to get the rights to make composition
* }
* // Create a keyboard event if the following starting composition is caused
* // by a key event.
* var keyEvent1 =
* new KeyboardEvent("", { key: "foo", code: "bar", keyCode: buzz });
* // If JS-IME don't want to show composing string in the focused editor,
* // JS-IME can dispatch only compositionstart event with this.
* if (!TIP.startComposition(keyEvent1)) {
* // Failed to start composition.
* return;
* }
* // And when user selects a result from UI of JS-IME, commit with it.
* // Then, the key event should be null.
* TIP.commitCompositionWith("selected-words");
*
* Example #8 JS-IME or JS-Keyboard should dispatch key events even during
* composition (non-printable key case):
*
* if (!TIP.beginInputTransaction(window, callback)) {
* return; // You failed to get the rights to dispatch key events
* }
*
* // You don't need to specify .keyCode value if it's non-printable key
* // because it can be computed from .key value.
* // If you specify non-zero value to .keyCode, it'll be used.
* var keyEvent = new KeyboardEvent("", { code: "Enter", key: "Enter" });
* if (TIP.keydown(keyEvent)) {
* // Handle its default action
* }
*
* // Even if keydown event was consumed, keyup event should be dispatched.
* if (TIP.keyup(keyEvent)) {
* // Handle its default action
* }
*
* Example #9 JS-IME or JS-Keyboard should dispatch key events even during
* composition (printable key case):
*
* if (!TIP.beginInputTransaction(window, callback)) {
* return; // You failed to get the rights to dispatch key events
* }
*
* // You need to specify .keyCode value if it's printable key.
* // The rules of .keyCode value is documented in MDN:
* //
* // #1 If the key location is DOM_KEY_LOCATION_NUMPAD and NumLock is
* // active, you should specify DOM_VK_NUMPAD[0-9], DOM_VK_MULTIPLY,
* // DOM_VK_ADD, DOM_VK_SEPARATOR, DOM_VK_SUBTRACT, DOM_VK_DECIMAL or
* // DOM_VK_DIVIDE.
* // #2 If the key is Spacebar, use DOM_VK_SPACE.
* //
* // Following rules are printable keys in DOM_KEY_LOCATION_STANDARD.
* // .keyCode value for a key shouldn't be changed by modifier states:
* // #1 If the key can input [0-9] with any modifier state (except
* // NumLock state), the value should be DOM_VK_[0-9].
* // #2 Otherwise, and if the key inputs an ASCII alphabet with no
* // active modifiers, use DOM_VK_[A-Z].
* // #3 Otherwise, and if the key inputs an ASCII alphabet with no
* // active modifiers except Shift key state, use DOM_VK_[A-Z] for
* // the shifted character. E.g., if a key causes non-alphabet
* // character such as "@" or a Unicode character without Shift key
* // but "a" is inputted when Shift key is pressed, the proper
* // keyCode is DOM_VK_A.
* // #4 Otherwise, and if the key inputs another ASCII character with
* // no modifier states, use a proper value for the character. E.g.,
* // if the key inputs "*" without Shift key state, it should be
* // DOM_VK_ASTERISK.
* // #5 Otherwise, and if the key inputs another ASCII character with
* // Shift key state, use a proper value for the character. E.g.,
* // if a key causes a Unicode character without Shift key but "&"
* // is inputted when Shift key is pressed, the proper keyCode is
* // DOM_VK_AMPERSAND.
* // See above document for the other cases.
* //
* // NOTE: If the software keyboard is 10-key like simple phone,
* // We don't have common rules to decide its .keyCode value.
* // Above rules should be used when the JS-Keyboard emulates PC
* // keyboard.
* // .key value should be inputting character by the key with current
* // modifier state.
* // .code value should be empty string if the JS-Keyboard isn't emulating
* // physical keyboard. Otherwise, use same value with physical keyboard's
* // same key.
* var keyEvent = new KeyboardEvent("", { code: "KeyA", key: "a",
* keyCode: KeyboardEvent.DOM_VK_A });
* if (TIP.keydown(keyEvent)) {
* // Handle its default action
* }
*
* // Even if keydown event was consumed, keyup event should be dispatched.
* if (TIP.keyup(keyEvent)) {
* // Handle its default action
* }
*
* Example #10 JS-Keyboard doesn't need to initialize modifier states at
* calling either keydown() or keyup().
*
* // Neither beginInputTransaction() nor beginInputTransactionForTests()
* // resets modifier state.
* if (!TIP.beginInputTransaction(window, callback)) {
* return; // You failed to get the rights to dispatch key events
* }
*
* var leftShift = new KeyboardEvent("", { code: "ShiftLeft", key: "Shift" });
*
* // This causes following key events will be shifted automatically.
* TIP.keydown(leftShift);
*
* var rightShift =
* new KeyboardEvent("", { code: "ShiftRight", key: "Shift" });
*
* TIP.keydown(rightShift);
*
* // keyup of one of shift key doesn't cause inactivating "Shift" state.
* TIP.keyup(rightShift);
*
* // This causes inactivating "Shift" state completely.
* TIP.keyup(leftShift);
