Hello @Bjorn_Wedbratt,
thanks for sharing. Is it also possible to read the language parameter from URL and store it in variable?

Hi @Daniel_G ,

I'm sorry, but to my knowledge there is no built-in function to retrieve the URL of the opened document (e.g : https://myserver/app/<guid>/overview).

The language added to the hub URL (/language/it) is however passed when opening an app from the hub, making sure the app is opened in the same language.

Hello @Bjorn_Wedbratt , thx 4 your fast reply. But how can we ensure that the app also opens with the same language? That's why I want to read this URL parameter and set it into a variable. Is there any other way to ensure it?

@Daniel_G If I understand you correctly, you also want the content within the app to reflect the language set in the URL? So, let's say you open using /language/it you want to pass "it" into a variable and change the layout of the app based on the value being passed? If that's the case, I'm sorry to say I don't know. 

You could open a new thread in the Qlik Sense App Dev forum to see if anyone in the community can give some tips. It's an interesting case, but out of my expertise, sorry. 😞

Hello @Bjorn_Wedbratt ,

that's exactly what I want. I already opened a new thread in dev forum, but it seems that no one knows it / it is not possible:
- https://community.qlik.com/t5/New-to-Qlik-Sense/Read-language-parameter-in-Qlik-app/m-p/1842912#M192...

I also suggested an idea to set url parameters into a variable as well like you can do it for fields:

Neverthelessthanks for your support and fast reply 🙂
