Current keyboard layout change event RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi!

    I want to make a small app, which would show current keyboard layout in its tile. I can get current layout calling Windows.Globalization.Language.CurrentInputMethodLanguageTag on start, but what would be the best practice to catch (hook) layout change event (if possible)?

  • Hi _al,

    So far there is a InputPane object which exposes "Showing", "Hiding" events for detecting the display and hide of the keyboard. But we cannot use it for detecting keyboard layout change.

    #InputPane class (Windows)

    For your case, if you want to get the current keyboard layout change instantly in your windows store app(when it runs), you might consider setup a javascript timer to constantly check the current keyboard setting so as to simulate a javascript event yourself.
