    Get windows Keyboard layout

    Hello!

    How can i get Keyboard Layout value from Windows (registry?), that is applied right now?

    explanation:
    I have software, that is running on WinXP machine.
    This software is running instead of explorer, so i cant see "Keyboard input language icon".
    And i have to create an application, that must display this information for my customers.

    Maybe You have an solution. it can be programming or not programming solution.

    Thanks.

    GetKeyboardLayoutName() gets the name (eg 409 for English) of the active keyboard layout.
    LoadKeyboardLayout() for loading new keyboard layouts.
    ActivateKeyboardLayout() to activate an already loaded keyboard layout.
    GetKeyboardLayoutList() gets the list of loaded keyboard layouts.
