CrossBrowdy - Basic tutorial

Client

Language detection and management

CrossBrowdy can try to detect the preferred language or languages supported by the client. By default, it will give priority to the languages detected through the back-end when possible as they are considered to be more reliable than the ones detected through the front-end (JavaScript).

Here is a simple example:


	//String with the first preferred language detected, with the default options:
	var language = CB_Client.getLanguage();
	
	//String with the first preferred language detected, without allowing to use "window.navigator.languages" for the detection and without giving priority to the language calculation in the back-end (not recommended):
	var language_2 = CB_Client.getLanguage(false, false);
	
	//String with the first preferred language detected, allowing to use "window.navigator.languages" for the detection (not recommended) and without giving priority to the language calculation in the back-end (not recommended):
	var language_3 = CB_Client.getLanguage(true, false);

	//Array of strings with the supported languages detected, with the default options:
	var languagesArray = CB_Client.getLanguages();

	//Array of strings with the supported languages detected, without allowing to use "window.navigator.languages" for the detection and without giving priority to the language calculation in the back-end (not recommended):
	var languagesArray_2 = CB_Client.getLanguages(false, false);
	
	//Array of strings with the supported languages detected, allowing to use "window.navigator.languages" for the detection (not recommended) and without giving priority to the language calculation in the back-end (not recommended):
	var languagesArray_3 = CB_Client.getLanguages(true, false);
	
	//Setting a function to call whenever the client language is changed (use "null" as the first parameter to remove them):
	CB_Client.onLanguageChanges(function(e) { CB_console("Language changed!"); });
