Constants

public static final String TAG

Added in API level 1

Constant Value: "ContentValues"

Fields

public static final Creator<ContentValues> CREATOR

Added in API level 1

Public Constructors

public ContentValues ()

Added in API level 1

Creates an empty set of values using the default initial size

public ContentValues (int size)

Added in API level 1

Creates an empty set of values using the given initial size

Parameters
size int: the initial size of the set of values

public ContentValues (ContentValues from)

Added in API level 1

Creates a set of values copied from the given set

Parameters
from ContentValues: the values to copy

Public Methods

public void clear ()

Added in API level 1

Removes all values.

public boolean containsKey (String key)

Added in API level 1

Returns true if this object has the named value.

Parameters
key String: the value to check for
Returns
boolean true if the value is present, false otherwise

public int describeContents ()

Added in API level 1

Describe the kinds of special objects contained in this Parcelable's marshalled representation.

Returns
int a bitmask indicating the set of special object types marshalled by the Parcelable.

public boolean equals (Object object)

Added in API level 1

Compares this instance with the specified object and indicates if they are equal. In order to be equal, o must represent the same object as this instance using a class-specific comparison. The general contract is that this comparison should be reflexive, symmetric, and transitive. Also, no object reference other than null is equal to null.

The default implementation returns true only if this == o. See Writing a correct equals method if you intend implementing your own equals method.

The general contract for the equals and hashCode() methods is that if equals returns true for any two objects, then hashCode() must return the same value for these objects. This means that subclasses of Object usually override either both methods or neither of them.

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

public Object get (String key)

Added in API level 1

Gets a value. Valid value types are String, Boolean, and Number implementations.

Parameters
key String: the value to get
Returns
Object the data for the value

public Boolean getAsBoolean (String key)

Added in API level 1

Gets a value and converts it to a Boolean.

Parameters
key String: the value to get
Returns
Boolean the Boolean value, or null if the value is missing or cannot be converted

public Byte getAsByte (String key)

Added in API level 1

Gets a value and converts it to a Byte.

Parameters
key String: the value to get
Returns
Byte the Byte value, or null if the value is missing or cannot be converted

public byte[] getAsByteArray (String key)

Added in API level 1

Gets a value that is a byte array. Note that this method will not convert any other types to byte arrays.

Parameters
key String: the value to get
Returns
byte[] the byte[] value, or null is the value is missing or not a byte[]

public Double getAsDouble (String key)

Added in API level 1

Gets a value and converts it to a Double.

Parameters
key String: the value to get
Returns
Double the Double value, or null if the value is missing or cannot be converted

public Float getAsFloat (String key)

Added in API level 1

Gets a value and converts it to a Float.

Parameters
key String: the value to get
Returns
Float the Float value, or null if the value is missing or cannot be converted

public Integer getAsInteger (String key)

Added in API level 1

Gets a value and converts it to an Integer.

Parameters
key String: the value to get
Returns
Integer the Integer value, or null if the value is missing or cannot be converted

public Long getAsLong (String key)

Added in API level 1

Gets a value and converts it to a Long.

Parameters
key String: the value to get
Returns
Long the Long value, or null if the value is missing or cannot be converted

public Short getAsShort (String key)

Added in API level 1

Gets a value and converts it to a Short.

Parameters
key String: the value to get
Returns
Short the Short value, or null if the value is missing or cannot be converted

public String getAsString (String key)

Added in API level 1

Gets a value and converts it to a String.

Parameters
key String: the value to get
Returns
String the String for the value

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.
