if os is Japaneese just set the textbox IMEMode property to one of the following

1....IME On
2....IME Off
3....IME Disabled
4....Hiragana Double Byte
5....Katakana Double Byte
6....Katakana Single Byte
7....Alpha Numeric Double Byte
8....Alpha Numeric Single Byte

depending on your need set one of the values. if the os is non japaneese then it simply ignores this property.
