Detailed Description

The LocaleInfo component provides access to additional locale properties. It also provides a way to map the system locale name to the Esri standard locale name, useful in contexts such as OAuth signin dialogs.

This sample provides a text box to declare a locale code, which will then populate a table with a number of LocaleInfo properties. It also demonstrates a potential usage of the component with OAuth signin.

Item {
    property string localeName
    property var locale
    property string oauthUrlFormat: ""
    property url oauthUrl

    Component.onCompleted: {
        localeName = Qt.locale().name;

        onLocaleNameChanged: {
        locale = Qt.locale(localeName);

        id: localeInfo
        name: localeName
        onLocaleChanged: {
            oauthUrl = oauthUrlFormat.arg(esriName);
            if (oauthTab.item) {
                oauthTab.item.url = oauthUrl;
