I am trying to display a list of names in an indexed table view. Since I can't know the users' localization settings, I tried to use UILocalizedIndexedCollation. The problem is that no matter what the language/regional settings are set to, the array returned by UILocalizedIndexedCollation always contains the english letters A-Z plus the # symbol. I tried French, German and Greek but I always got back the same array. I am using the Window-based app template with the following code added in the application:didFinishLaunchingWithOptions: method. Code: NSArray *arr = [[UILocalizedIndexedCollation currentCollation] sectionIndexTitles]; NSLog(@"%@", arr); I am running this on the iPhone Simulator with base SDK 4.0. Is this a problem with the simulator, Apple's APIs or am I doing something wrong? Thanks.
