Multi Language Editor – make it easy

Found out that my Multi Language editor was not orientation aware, so decided to make the necessary changes. It ended up with an additional feature that allows one to configure the keyboard settings through a user interface, instead of having to fiddle on the registry as in the previous version. In the setting user interface, you will be able to choose the preferred primary and secondary input methods (which usually correspond to a distinct keyboard locale/layout) The primary choice will also be set as your system default keyboard locale accordingly. The latter will be useful when you install third party IME software, as the installation usually overrides your factory default setting, in terms of the keyboard setting.

Adding Multi Keyboard Layout support in WINCE

In desktop Windows, you can add additional native language support, which enables you to toggle and choose different keyboard layouts real time, to enter text in different language.In  Windows CE, you can install more than one keyboard layout, but you can only use one layout until you modify the registry and soft-reset your phone to activate a different layout.

There’s a way to access all the installed keyboard layouts, without having to perform registry hack and soft-reset the phone. However, it is application-dependent to add this support. And no prize for guessing that Microsoft default applications are not designed to support multi-keyboard either. Continue reading

Windows CE SIP utility

Here’s the utility that I have created to select the SIP without having to tap on the SIP icon. Obviously, you need to map one of the hardware key to the utility, for my case I use WM5Menu to do it (see below).

This was created originally for me to enable NullKB to be my default key on startup (for some reason, I cannot do that in registry, so I created this utility to be run during a startup) .. since then, I have seen people writing mortscript to switch SIP so I thought I might as well ‘expand’ my little utility project.

I added the popup menu to show the list of the SIP (see below), for selection of the SIP to be switched over to.

I use WM5menu to map the right soft key to the utility.

I have also created a few shortcuts for standards SIP, so that you can immediately switch to the desirable SIP, without having the popup menu for selection. You may map your button to any of these shortcut. You can create new shortcuts if you have third party SIP that you want to map.
