FAQ

How do I use Detector?

In order to access the features you need to use the $ua object that is automatically created with the inclusion of Detector in your application. Use the $ua object in a similar way that you would have used the Modernizr object on the client-side:

global $ua;

// your script

if ($ua->svg) {
    ...
} elseif ($ua->canvas) {
    ...
}

See the full list of browser features that are tested by Modernizr and available with Detector. All of the features tested with ua-parser-php are also available from the $ua variable (e.g. $ua->isMobile or $ua->browserFull)

Some features, (in particular video, audio, input, and inputtypes) have sub-features, so these are available as nested PHP objects:

if ($ua->inputtypes->search) {
    print "<input type='search' ...";
} else {
    print "<input type='text' ...";
}

All features are returned as integer 1 or 0 for true or false, so they can be used in logical evaluations in PHP. Sub-features can return 1, 0, or a real value (e.g. screen width).
