public static var compositionString: string;
public static string compositionString;


The current IME composition string being typed by the user.

In some languages such as Chinese, Japanese or Korean, text is input by typing multiple keys to generate one or multiple characters. These characters are visually composed on the screen as the user types. When using Unity's built in GUI system for text input, Unity will take care of displaying the composition strings as the users types. If you want to implement your own GUI, however, you need to take care of displaying the string at the current cursor position. The composition string is only updated when IME compositing is used. See Input.imeCompositionMode for more info. See Also: Input.imeCompositionMode, Input.compositionCursorPos.
