LocaleModule

The LocaleModule class encapsulates access to the locale identifier of the device.

Example

//==============================================================================
// The following example demonstrates how to detect the device language and
// log a greeting in that language.
//==============================================================================

// Load in the required modules
const Diagnostics = require('Diagnostics');
const Locale = require('Locale');

// Store the unedited locale string (made up of the language_territory)
const languageAndTerritory = Locale.fromDevice;

// Log the locale string to the Console
Diagnostics.log('My location and territory are ' + languageAndTerritory);

// Create an array by splitting the locale string, this array will have two
// values, the language [0] and the territory [1]
const localeAsArray = languageAndTerritory.split('_');

// Store the first element in the array (the language)
const language = localeAsArray[0];

// Use a switch statement to say hello in the Console in the correct language
switch (language) {
  // English
  case 'en':
    Diagnostics.log('Hello');
    break;
  // Spanish
  case 'es':
    Diagnostics.log('Hola');
    break;
  // French
  case 'fr':
    Diagnostics.log('Bonjour');
    break;
  // Other
  default:
    Diagnostics.log('Device language is neither English, Spanish nor French');
    break;
}
