Can the undocumented but available functions be used?

Hello Experts, 

 

For one of the scenario, I need to retrieve the Organization Settings. 

 

While debugging the context, I stumbled across one of the property, that can provide me the required values. 

 

Like, I'd want to know the First Day of the Week, which can be obtained by using the below line of code as per the data seen at the time of debugging (please see screenshot) .

Code: context.formatting._currentCultureInfo.dateTimeFormat.firstDayOfWeek

Screenshot:

@jopursle  @v-monli-msft  @v-xida-msft  @AnqiChen So, wanted to understand, can I use the above line of code? If not, then what would be the right approach to achieve it?

 

Thanks,

Sheldon

It looks like it's supported in our typing file through:

context.userSettings.dateFormattingInfo.firstDayOfWeek

 

It's also documented

In general, if an API is not documented, then it is subject to change and usage of it is not supported nor recommended.

You should not use the undocumented APIs on the context object. For this particular case you can use WebAPI to retrive the value from the cds server and then cache it locally using setControlState for faster rendering for subsequent control load.
