Property Value

A sorted string array of client language preferences, or a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) if empty.

int count;
String[] userLang = Request.UserLanguages;    
for (count = 0; count < userLang.Length; count++) 
   Response.Write("User Language " + count +": " + userLang[count] + "<br>");

int count;
String userLang[] = get_Request().get_UserLanguages();
for (count = 0; count < userLang.length; count++) {
    get_Response().Write(("User Language " + count + ": "
        + userLang.get_Item(count) + "<br>"));

var userLang : String[] = Request.UserLanguages
for(var count=0; count < userLang.Length; count++){
  Response.Write("User Language: " + userLang[count] + "<br>")
