Get All Languages

We are utilizing 15 different languages for our site.  I am attempting to get all languages for some current functionality that I have which needs done for all languages.  I need to get all languages then do a "foreach" on each language.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi Jared,

 In order to get all of the cultures of a certain object you first need to know all of the cultures you have. Please see the code below for further reference:

NewsManager manager = NewsManager.GetManager();
            var items = manager.GetNewsItems();  
            foreach (var item in items)
                Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture = new CultureInfo("en");
                var title = item.GetValue("Title");
                Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture = new CultureInfo("fr");
                var title = item.GetValue("Title");
It gets the titles of all English and French news items. Regards,
Ivan D. Dimitrov

I know all the languages, but I do not want to hard code the languages.  Is there a way to get all the languages?  I want to GetAllLanguages, then for each language "do something".

I resolved my issue and here is what I did:

CultureInfo[] languages = SystemManager.CurrentContext.AppSettings.DefinedBackendLanguages;

This got all the languages and here is what I did to see the results:

            foreach (var language in languages)
                resultLanguages.Text += language.ToString() + "<br>";

I was wrong above as I pasted the incorrect code.

Instead of "CultureInfo[] languages = SystemManager.CurrentContext.AppSettings.DefinedBackendLanguages;"

I meant "CultureInfo[] languages = SystemManager.CurrentContext.AppSettings.DefinedFrontendLanguages;"
