2230366 - Input Language switching issue - SAP PB


  • In a multi-language application, when a DataWindow column gets the focus, PowerBuilder changes the Input language to the latest language entered in that column.
  • If no data is entered, it selects the default Input language.
  • This behaviour considers that a column will often contain data of the same language.
  • But if the column is not linked to a specific language, users have to switch the keyboard each time a column is selected.
  • Purpose of this KBA is to provide an option to keep the last language selected by the user in order to bypass the current PowerBuilder behaviour.
