Public Methods

public int findTokenEnd (CharSequence text, int cursor)

Added in API level 1

Returns the end of the token (minus trailing punctuation) that begins at offset cursor within text.

Parameters
text CharSequence
cursor int
Returns
int

public int findTokenStart (CharSequence text, int cursor)

Added in API level 1

Returns the start of the token that ends at offset cursor within text.

Parameters
text CharSequence
cursor int
Returns
int

public CharSequence terminateToken (CharSequence text)

Added in API level 1

Terminates the specified address with a comma and space. This assumes that the specified text already has valid syntax. The Adapter subclass's convertToString() method must make that guarantee.

Parameters
text CharSequence
Returns
CharSequence

public static Rfc822Token[] tokenize (CharSequence text)

Added in API level 1

This method will try to take a string like "Foo Bar (something) <foo\@google.com>, blah\@google.com (something)" and convert it into one or more Rfc822Tokens. It does *not* decode MIME encoded-words; charset conversion must already have taken place if necessary. It will try to be tolerant of broken syntax instead of returning an error.

Parameters
text CharSequence
Returns
Rfc822Token[]

public static void tokenize (CharSequence text, Collection<Rfc822Token> out)

Added in API level 8

This constructor will try to take a string like "Foo Bar (something) <foo\@google.com>, blah\@google.com (something)" and convert it into one or more Rfc822Tokens, output into the supplied collection. It does *not* decode MIME encoded-words; charset conversion must already have taken place if necessary. It will try to be tolerant of broken syntax instead of returning an error.

Parameters
text CharSequence
out Collection
