Hi.
I would like to know if there is a way to change the language only inside a textbox.
For examble i would like to press a button and the user can insert french characters inside the current textbox.

I tried "ActivateKeyboardLayout", maybe i did something wrong, but it doesn work, is there any other way ?

Well, this doesnt work... The code goes like this..

procedure TForm5.Image1Click(Sender: TObject);
var Russian: HKL;
begin
Russian:=LoadKeyboardLayout('00000419', 0);
end;

(Compiler message : var Russian never used.)

Maybe that happens because i dont have russian language in my pc. How can i find the # list of the languages ?

//  greater number element array is reserved


TKBLayout = array [0..9] of HKL;
PKBLayout = ^TKBLayout;
...

n:= GetKeyboardLayoutList(10,KBLayoutList^);  // n - total number real spreading


// Number spreading possible to define so :

var
   i : integer;
   str : string;
SetLength(str,200);
for i:=0 to n-1 do begin
  ActivateKeyboardLayout(KBLayoutList^[i],0);
  GetKeyboardLayoutName(PChar(str));          
  showmessage(str);
end;
