ParsePosition

extends Object
java.lang.Object
   ↳ java.text.ParsePosition

Class Overview

Tracks the current position in a parsed string. In case of an error the error index can be set to the position where the error occurred without having to change the parse position.

Summary

Public Constructors
ParsePosition(int index)
Constructs a new ParsePosition with the specified index.
Public Methods
boolean equals(Object object)
Compares the specified object to this ParsePosition and indicates if they are equal.
int getErrorIndex()
Returns the index at which the parse could not continue.
int getIndex()
Returns the current parse position.
int hashCode()
Returns an integer hash code for this object.
void setErrorIndex(int index)
Sets the index at which the parse could not continue.
void setIndex(int index)
Sets the current parse position.
String toString()
Returns the string representation of this parse position.

Public Constructors

public ParsePosition (int index)

Added in API level 1

Constructs a new ParsePosition with the specified index.

Parameters
index int: the index to begin parsing.

Public Methods

public boolean equals (Object object)

Added in API level 1

Compares the specified object to this ParsePosition and indicates if they are equal. In order to be equal, object must be an instance of ParsePosition and it must have the same index and error index.

Parameters
object Object: the object to compare with this object.
Returns
boolean true if the specified object is equal to this ParsePosition; false otherwise.

public int getErrorIndex ()

Added in API level 1

Returns the index at which the parse could not continue.

Returns
int the index of the parse error or -1 if there is no error.

public int getIndex ()

Added in API level 1

Returns the current parse position.

Returns
int the current position.

public int hashCode ()

Added in API level 1

Returns an integer hash code for this object. By contract, any two objects for which equals(Object) returns true must return the same hash code value. This means that subclasses of Object usually override both methods or neither method.

Note that hash values must not change over time unless information used in equals comparisons also changes.

See Writing a correct hashCode method if you intend implementing your own hashCode method.

Returns
int this object's hash code.

public void setErrorIndex (int index)

Added in API level 1

Sets the index at which the parse could not continue.

Parameters
index int: the index of the parse error.

public void setIndex (int index)

Added in API level 1

Sets the current parse position.

Parameters
index int: the current parse position.

public String toString ()

Added in API level 1

Returns the string representation of this parse position.

Returns
String the string representation of this parse position.
