Example.

This example learns how to implement runtime language selection.

 

 

You can see it in action in our Feature Demo. To implement this feature, we have to create a template containing the language menu and instruct PHP Generator to use it.

 

Template code is as follows:

 

{include file='page_list_menu.tpl'}

<ul class="nav navbar-nav navbar-right">

    <li class="dropdown">

        <a href="#" class="dropdown-toggle" data-toggle="dropdown" 

               role="button" aria-haspopup="true" aria-expanded="false">

            {$availableLangs[$currentLang]}

            <span class="caret"></span>

        </a>

        <ul class="dropdown-menu" id="langs">

            {foreach item=lang key=key from=$availableLangs}

                {if $currentLang != $key}

                    <li><a href="#" data-lang="{$key}">{$lang}</a></li>

                {/if}

            {/foreach}

        </ul>

    </li>

</ul>

 

Event handler is as follows:

 

if ($part == PagePart::PageList)

{

    $langs = array(

        'en' => 'English',

        'de' => 'German',

        'es' => 'Spanish',

        'fr' => 'French',

    );

 

    $lang = 'en'; // default language

    

    // trying to retrieve language from cookies

    if (isset($_COOKIE['lang']) && $_COOKIE['lang'] && isset($langs[$_COOKIE['lang']])) {

        $lang = $_COOKIE['lang'];

    }

 

    $params['availableLangs'] = $langs;

    $params['currentLang'] = $lang;

    

    $result = 'custom_menu.tpl';

}

 

Almost done. Now we need to handle the language selection. This can be done with user-defined JavaScript:

 

function handleLanguageSelection() {

     $("#langs").on("click", "a", function (e) {

         var query = jQuery.query;

         query = query.set('lang', $(this).data('lang'));

         window.location = query;

         e.preventDefault();

     });

}

 

require(['jquery'], function () {

    $(function () {   

        handleLanguageSelection();

    });

});

 

That's all. Don't forget to place language files to the components/languages directory.
