Fields

public static final AttributedCharacterIterator.Attribute INPUT_METHOD_SEGMENT

Added in API level 1

This attribute marks segments from an input method. Most input methods create these segments for words. The value objects are of the type Annotation which contain null.

public static final AttributedCharacterIterator.Attribute LANGUAGE

Added in API level 1

The attribute describing the language of a character. The value objects are of type Locale or a subtype of it.

public static final AttributedCharacterIterator.Attribute READING

Added in API level 1

For languages that have different reading directions of text (like Japanese), this attribute allows to define which reading should be used. The value objects are of type Annotation which contain a String.

Protected Constructors

protected AttributedCharacterIterator.Attribute (String name)

Added in API level 1

The constructor for an Attribute with the name passed.

Parameters
name String: the name of the new Attribute.

Public Methods

public final boolean equals (Object object)

Added in API level 1

Compares this attribute with the specified object. Checks if both objects are the same instance. It is defined final so all subclasses have the same behavior for this method.

Parameters
object Object: the object to compare against.
Returns
boolean true if the object passed is equal to this instance; false otherwise.

public final int hashCode ()

Added in API level 1

Calculates the hash code for objects of type Attribute. It is defined final so all sub types calculate their hash code identically.

Returns
int the hash code for this instance of Attribute.

public String toString ()

Added in API level 1

Returns the name of the class followed by a "(", the name of the attribute, and a ")".

Returns
String the string representing this instance.

Protected Methods

protected String getName ()

Added in API level 1

Returns the name of this attribute.

Returns
String the name of this attribute.

protected Object readResolve ()

Added in API level 1

Resolves a deserialized instance to the correct constant attribute.

Returns
Object the Attribute this instance represents.
Throws
InvalidObjectException if this instance is not of type Attribute.class or if it is not a known Attribute.
