Changing keyboard layout

I can't change the keyboard layout, when I add second layout in YaST.
The switching key combinations doesn't work.
When I add second layout in "Configure Desktop", I can change layouts
but often I should first mouse click the flag icon in the tray, before
keyboard combination begins to work.

The keyboard layouts in YaST are for changing hardware. The layouts in
Configure Keyboard are for changing the software layout of one keyboard.
That is why you must click the flag to change the software layout. The
keyboard combinations change the hardware layouts if you have two
keyboards.

Hi.
To temporarily change your keyboard layout you can use scim (or skim
for KDE). For the commandline there's setxkbmap.

What about "Xkb options" in "Configure desktop"? Shouldn't it allow
usage of keyboard shortcuts for switching layouts of a single device?
Still, when I tune shortcuts there it usually requires that first the
icon in the tray were mouse clicked, and only after that, shortcuts do
work. It's not convinient as I have to change layout constanly. I'd like
to be able to change layouts with keyboard shortcuts only.
In addition, the icon in the tray doesn't change, when I do change a
layout with a shortcut.

I'd prefer to solve this by means of OS and not to download an
additional 30 MB software, if it is possible.

You have a choice; either configure the keyboard to respond to keyboard
shortcuts OR use a quite separate (KDE) program to make a change in how
the input from the keyboard is interpreted. The first will work whether
you have KDE or Gnome installed; the second is limited to KDE. They are
choices. Choose which works best for you but don't mix them up.

But I don't know why the keyboard sometimes doesn't responde to
shortcuts and I have to click the icon in the tray in these cases.

Also, it would be nice if the icon changed when I change the layout
with a keyboard shortcut and not only when I change it with a mouse
click.

Changing the language to an application layout
Is there any "smart way" (using code) or class to change the language used to an application layout, that is all the labels, column names in a data window, text in a button etc... in PW 6.5 or 7? You could have a routine that gets all the visual objects (loops through the control array and uses typeof in a case statement) - for datawindows, loop through all the objects within it. Then based either on the control name, or better the existing text, have a database table that has translations and switch the values. Note for user objects, you'll need to do this recursiv...
