How to attach an ADF Language Menu as a main menu

<button mat-icon-button [matMenuTriggerFor]="langMenu">
<mat-menu #langMenu="matMenu">


Add a Language Menu component to let the user set the locale language for the app. For further information about the locale language, see the Internationalization page in the user guide.

The component fetches the list of available languages from app.config.json:

"languages": [
            "key": "en",
            "label": "English"
            "key": "fr",
            "label": "French"
            "key": "it",
            "label": "Italian"

If no languages setting is provided, the component shows only the English language.

Nested Menu language

You can also attach the Language Menu as a nested menu:

<button mat-icon-button class="dw-profile-menu" [matMenuTriggerFor]="profileMenu">
<mat-menu #profileMenu="matMenu">
    <button mat-menu-item>profile-settings</button>
    <button mat-menu-item [matMenuTriggerFor]="langMenu">Languages</button>
    <button mat-menu-item>sign-out</button>
<mat-menu #langMenu="matMenu">
