LAST VERSION - 1.0
04-Jul-10

It's another my utility for Windows decoration. iSwitcher - a replacement to the standard Windows keyboard layout switcher. The program has several additional features and enhancements: shows a flags in the system tray instead "EN", "RU", etc. (list of supported languages is shown on the screenshot), sets any hot keys to switch keyboard layout (default is ALT+SPACEBAR), shows a pop-up images, accelerated response to pressing a hot keys, etc. iSwitcher does not use any Send... functions, all implemented by using WinAPI (in general, WinAPIEx UDF libray here is basic). If someone wants to use the standard Windows hot keys to switch the language (default is ALT+SHIFT), iSwitcher is working with them without problems. iSwitcher based on the same "engine" as the iKey and will be an ideal complement to it. In order to reduce the file size and memory usage, the programs do not have any graphical user interface (GUI). Basic settings are may changing by using the system tray menu, the others - directly in the registry (see notes). iSwitcher works in Windows XP and Windows Vista/7 (not sure about Windows 2000).

Despite the fact that I wrote this program only as "embellishment", I found one additional advantage during testing (I use it for a week) - if using the large monitors, the probability of an incorrect switching keyboard layout is reduced at least two times (how often do we look in the lower right corner to check the current language). If you use more than two keyboard layouts, iSwitcher will mega useful utility for you (I think).

BTW, what do you think about the use of ALT+SPACEBAR to switch keyboard layout (similar to Mac OS X), IMHO much more easier...

I can't change keyboard layout, the only thing I can do is to show the current flag language with the HotKey "Alt+Space", because the HotKey "Alt+Shift" does nothing for me.
