Can i get current language of keyboard?

There are a few macros for languages. Check the macros section of the help file.

@KBLayout - Returns code denoting Keyboard Layout.

@OSLang - Returns code denoting OS Language.

You mean taking an input from the user and determining what language it is?

Ohhh... let's just say that's impossible. Only humans could do that.. look at "This phrase" and tell it's English, and "diese Phrase" and tell it's German, and "cette expression" and say it's French. If there is a system out there to do it, it must have some flaws, obviously.

Im not about a phrase!

I about that what language of input am chosen during this or that moment.

If English - MsgBox (0, " Current Language ", "0409")

Russian - MsgBox (0, " Current Language ", "0419")

:)

Haven't had time to fully investigate, but you might get somewhere with this http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms724947.aspx and "SPI_GETDEFAULTINPUTLANG".

If you're not much for API calls, PaulIA's Auto3Lib has an "_API_SystemParametersInfo()" function that should work.

You'll also need info on the different language/sub language constants, which can be found here: http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms776294.aspx

Finally, some usefull general information here: http://www.microsoft.com/globaldev/getWR/s.../WRG_kybrd.mspx

Hope that helps.
