    How to change the default IME programatically

    Hi All,
    I need to change the default IME to Japanese.
    So that when a user presses keys in a text box, japanese
    letters will be coming automatically.

    By default english letters will be coming. After we set to MS IME Japanese, then only japanese letters will be coming.

    I am having Japanese m/c.

    Thanks in Advance
    Cherian

    Actually I'd be interested in this as well.

    I haven't much looked into the specifics, but maybe you can use ImmAssociateContext to set a new IME to the textbox. I'm not sure how exactly this is done though.
    Get this small utility to do basic syntax highlighting in vBulletin forums (like Codeguru) easily.
    Supports C++ and VB out of the box, but can be configured for other languages.

    Question I too need help on IME settings

    Hi cherian_2002 and Yves M, (sorry I don't know your actual names)

    Is anyone of you able to do this? Actually I have done it to some extent. In my case placing the focus on an edit control that needs Japanese Input, changes the IME bar input script to 'Hiragana' settings. But while inputting the text, character that appears are Katakana. Can u help me?

    With Regards,
    Sandhya

    Hello Sandhya,
    You need to set different Conversion status flags for Hiragana and katakana.


    For Hiragana set flag as
    IME_CMODE_JAPANESE | IME_CMODE_FULLSHAPE

    For katakana set flag value as
    IME_CMODE_NATIVE | IME_CMODE_KATAKANA


    And in ImmSetConversionStatus() set this flag value
