Thread Safety

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.


You can use the data from the InputLanguageChangingEventArgs to prepare to change Input Method Editors (IMEs) or swap right-to-left values. You can also change a thread's CurrentCulture and CurrentUICulture properties so that different resources get picked up. To prevent the input language from changing, set the Cancel property to true.

An InputLanguageChangingEventArgs identifies the requested input language and the character set of new input language. The Culture property identifies the locale of the requested language.

The InputLanguageChanging event precedes the InputLanguageChanged event.

For information about handling events, see Consuming Events.
