You will need to set the Font property of the textbox to the font that you are interested in, say "Shusha", for example. The user would need to enter the correct sequence of keystrokes for the textbox to display it right. When using "Shusha" font, the word "Bhaasha" would need the following sequence of characters - "BaaYaa". Try it out.

The user needs to set their machine to use this font. That's all. You can't force the font for one textbox, as far as I know. The user needs their machine set up to use that font. otherwise, you'd have to provide some other means, such as an on screen keyboard, or code that sets the locale when the textbox focuses ( not sure if this is even possible ).

If you have Marathi keyboard and font installed in your system, you can type it in textbox.
 
I think there shouldnt be any problem with that. Wink | ;)

hi Christian,
 
as you told "you'd have to provide some other means, such as an on screen keyboard, or code that sets the locale when the textbox focuses"
 
can you give me sample for how to use screen keyboard.
 
I had tried code to set locale when the text focuses but it's not working.

People here say, you must have font's installed on your system to get this working.
 
May i ask them how google transliteration works. I do not have required fonts installed on my computer but i can still see converted text.
 
You may check out some sites given below and do some R&D.
Check out if they provide an api.
