Parameters

languageTag

Type: String [JavaScript] | System.String [.NET] | Platform::String [C++]

A BCP-47 language tag. See Remarks.

Remarks

If your app passes language tags used in this class to any National Language Support functions, it must first convert the tags by calling ResolveLocaleName.
