WinXP Tablet Edition Input Panel Shortcut

In windows XP tablet edition, there is the TIP (Tablet Input Panel).  Down on the task bar next to the start menu is a "shortcut" that allows you to show and hide the panel.  It does not appear to be a 'typical' shortcut in that you can not bring up the properties dialog and view the location or parameters that perform its function.  I'm trying to figure out how I could show/hide this panel from the command line for use in a bat file, but as of yet, have not been able to find much information about the TIP on the web.  It appears to be at least part of the tabtip.exe.  So, i'm thinking it could be invoked via that with some command line parameters, I just haven't been able to find them.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Mike

No, it does not appear as though that page has any information or links to information about command line parameters for tabtip.exe.

Thanks though,

Ok, even through the microsoft expertzone community newsgroups I haven't been able to get an answer.  And, the way I'm currently doing things is working well enough without any command line parameters.

Thanks to all who pondered.
