Does anybody know which registry entry controls where the keyboard appears when it is opened?

I am writing an app and I have to keep dragging the keyboard out of the way everytime I click on a text field so want to write a function that will allow me to specify the location that it opens at.

Its a soft keyboard and generally termed as SIP
The registry settings are


If you want to do it in code
BOOL SipShowHide(BOOL show)
The value of show = FALSE;
will hide it in taskbar, you can click and open it only when you want.
