Constructor

Intl.PluralRules.PluralRules()
Creates a new Intl.PluralRules object.

Static methods

Intl.PluralRules.supportedLocalesOf()
Returns an array containing those of the provided locales that are supported without having to fall back to the runtime's default locale.

Instance methods

Intl.PluralRules.prototype.resolvedOptions()
Returns a new object with properties reflecting the locale and collation options computed during initialization of the object.
Intl.PluralRules.prototype.select()
Returns a String indicating which plural rule to use for locale-aware formatting.

Examples

Using locales

This example shows some of the variations in localized plural rules. In order to get the format of the language used in the user interface of your application, make sure to specify that language (and possibly some fallback languages) using the locales argument:

// Arabic has different plural rules

new Intl.PluralRules('ar-EG').select(0);
// → 'zero'
new Intl.PluralRules('ar-EG').select(1); 
// → 'one'
new Intl.PluralRules('ar-EG').select(2);
// → 'two'
new Intl.PluralRules('ar-EG').select(6);
// → 'few'
new Intl.PluralRules('ar-EG').select(18);
// → 'many'
