Hi,

In NativeSpeak 1.x, I wrote (with the help of Trevor) that function:

function dptGetLang
  -- Returns the language of the session of the user.
  -- This function will read the operation system configuration and will
return the current language used by the user.
  local theItemNo,theLangCode,theLangStrings
  local theVersion,theWinLangCodes
  local theUserLang = "en"
  
  if the platform is "MacOS" then
    put replacetext(shell("defaults read NSGlobalDomain
AppleLanguages"),"(\s|\(|\)|" & quote & ")","") into theLangStrings
    put char 1 to 2 of theLangStrings into theUserLang
  else if the platform is "Win32" then

Objet : getting the selected language



To get the selected language in OS X it seems that the following works well:

put replaceText(shell("defaults read NSGlobalDomain
AppleLanguages"),"(\s|\(|\))","") into theLanguagesList


How does one get the same information on a Windows machine?
