toLocaleLowerCase Method (String)

toLocaleLowerCase Method (String) (JavaScript)

Converts all alphabetic characters to lowercase, taking into account the host environment's current locale.

stringVar.toLocaleLowerCase( )

The required stringVar reference is a String object or string literal.

The toLocaleLowerCase method converts the characters in a string, taking into account the host environment's current locale. In most cases, the result is the same as the result of the toLowerCase method. Results differ if the rules for a language conflict with the regular Unicode case mappings.
