Change Keyboard Language

Change Keyboard Language

Is it possible to change the keyboard language from English to Arabic in Clipper?

I have two list boxes, one of which needs to default to English and the other to Arabic.

Would be grateful for any help.

RE: Change Keyboard Language

You need to call the LoadKeyboardLayout and ActivateKeyboardLayout functions, but they are not directly available in Clipper, so you probably need some C or assembly routine to call them for you.
I don't have much experience with these tricks, at least not from Clipper, but it know it would be much easier if you where using (x)Harbour, that allows for simple integration with C calls in general (using some #pragma definition, don't know much about that either)
The docs for the *layout functions can be found on MSDN.
