Abstract: In these years, text input in computer becomes a very important part to store texts instead of handwriting because of its efficiency, quality, etc. For typing English character, QWERTY keyboard, which is very user-friendly design for typing English character, is invented. It is successful because there are only 26 characters in English. As a result, users can type every character directly from the keyboard so both the degree of user-friendly and input speed. For typing Chinese character, however, it is very difficult to provide a good solution since there are over ten thousand Chinese characters. For achieving the goal, many Chinese Input Methods has been released and each of them has their own advantages in terms of learning difficulty, input speed and mobile phone applications. In 2007, a new Chinese character and phrase input method has been invented by Dr. Lai-Man Po, which is called G6 Bihua (六碼筆劃輸入法) as five basic stroke types are used to define at most six digits and base-5 numbers for encoding both Chinese characters and phrases. In this project, G6 Bihua Chinese Input Method is implemented into Microsoft Windows Vista Platform, which has very user-friendly layout and design for archiving the main purposes of G6: easy to learn and easy to use and providing a solution to users for typing Chinese Character conveniently.
