Need VBCE API call ImmSIPanelState sample

The ImmSIPanelState obtains the state of Input Panel in a PDA (I want to know if the numeric software keyboard is active or if the alphanumeric one is active). The problem is that I don't know if I'm declaring correctly the parameters BECAUSE I ALWAYS GET FALSE as result of the API call.
I NEED a sample code working ok calling this function and evaluating results to demostrate the use of LPVOID in VBCE.

Here is the code I'm trying to use:

Option Explicit
 

'Constants API
Public Const SIP_INPUT_ATTRIBUTES = &H7000
Public Const SIP_INPUT_NUMERIC = &H4
Public Const SIP_INPUT_ALPHANUMERIC = &H8
Public Const SIP_INPUT_HIRAGANA = &H10
Public Const SIP_INPUT_KATAKANA = &H100
Public Const SIP_INPUT_EVERYTHING = &H0
Public Const SIP_INPUT_HALFWIDTH = &H1
Public Const SIP_INPUT_FULLWIDTH = &H2
 
'Declarations API
Public Declare Function ImmSIPanelState Lib "Coredll" (ByVal dwCmd As Long, ByRef pValue As Long) As Boolean
 
Public Sub TestAPI()
 Dim br As Boolean
Dim lp1 As Long
 
lp1 = SIP_INPUT_NUMERIC
br = ImmSIPanelState(SIP_INPUT_ATTRIBUTES, lp1)
 
If br = False Then
    MsgBox ("Error ImmSIPanelState")
Else
    MsgBox ("OK ImmSIPanelState")
End If
End Sub
