Hi.
1) I have a multi-lang win system EN/HE (English/Hebrew)
which can be changed with Ctrl+Shift or in the Language-Bar.
2) I dynamically create in javascript a window (window.open)
which contains TEXTAREA.
When it opens, the dufault language is always EN.
So I need to change it to HE manually everytime :-(
I could not find a way to change it to be by default in HE.
See also attached gifs.
Thanks, Aryeh.

Thx but No. I should have expected this reply. (I tried it already).
No this does not solve the problem.
The cursor still points to the right direction.

I think the solution might be based on the following code.
Can someone make it work for me?
Thanks. Aryeh.
<TEXTAREA id="remark" ...>...</TEXTAREA>
 
var rem=document.getElementById(\'remark\');
var evObj = document.createEventObject();
evObj.shiftKey=true;
evObj.altKey=true;
rem.fireEvent("onkeypress", evObj);

Open in new window

Anyway, since I'm frequently using Hebrew input, it is a good advice to change the Computer default language to Hebrew (and not English). Aryeh.
