This property is the Win32 character set that the user switched to. On ANSI systems, this property can be used to create fonts that can display the correct character set. On Unicode systems, you typically do not need to use this property. Instead, use the CultureInfo class for these functionalities.

The following code example demonstrates the use of this member. In the example, an event handler reports on the occurrence of the Form.InputLanguageChanged event. This report helps you to learn when the event occurs and can assist you in debugging. To report on multiple events or on events that occur frequently, consider replacing MessageBox.Show with Console.WriteLine or appending the message to a multiline TextBox.

To run the example code, paste it into a project that contains an instance of type Form named Form1. Then ensure that the event handler is associated with the Form.InputLanguageChanged event.

private void Form1_InputLanguageChanged(Object sender, InputLanguageChangedEventArgs e) {

System.Text.StringBuilder messageBoxCS = new System.Text.StringBuilder();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "InputLanguage", e.InputLanguage );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "Culture", e.Culture );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "CharSet", e.CharSet );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
MessageBox.Show(messageBoxCS.ToString(), "InputLanguageChanged Event" );
}
