withLocale<T> method

dynamic withLocale <T>(
  1. String locale,
  2. T function(
      )
    )

    Run function with the default locale set to locale and return the result.

    This is run in a zone, so async operations invoked from within function will still have the locale set.

    In simple usage function might be a single Intl.message() call or number/date formatting operation. But it can also be an arbitrary function that calls multiple Intl operations.

    For example

      Intl.withLocale('fr', () => new NumberFormat.format(123456));
    

    or

      hello(name) => Intl.message(
          'Hello $name.',
          name: 'hello',
          args: [name],
          desc: 'Say Hello');
      Intl.withLocale('zh', new Timer(new Duration(milliseconds:10),
          () => print(hello('World')));
    

    Implementation

    static dynamic withLocale<T>(String locale, T Function() function) {
      // TODO(alanknight): Make this return T. This requires work because T might
      // be Future and the caller could get an unawaited Future.  Which is
      // probably an error in their code, but the change is semi-breaking.
      var canonical = Intl.canonicalizedLocale(locale);
      return runZoned(function, zoneValues: {#Intl.locale: canonical});
    }
