LinkAddress

public class LinkAddress
extends Object implements Parcelable

java.lang.Object
   ↳ android.net.LinkAddress


Identifies an IP address on a network link. A LinkAddress consists of:

  • An IP address and prefix length (e.g., 2001:db8::1/64 or 192.0.2.1/24). The address must be unicast, as multicast addresses cannot be assigned to interfaces.
  • Address flags: A bitmask of OsConstants.IFA_F_* values representing properties of the address (e.g., android.system.OsConstants.IFA_F_OPTIMISTIC).
  • Address scope: One of the OsConstants.IFA_F_* values; defines the scope in which the address is unique (e.g., android.system.OsConstants.RT_SCOPE_LINK or android.system.OsConstants.RT_SCOPE_UNIVERSE).

Fields

CREATOR

added in API level 21
public static final Creator<LinkAddress> CREATOR

Implement the Parcelable interface.

Public methods

describeContents

added in API level 21
public int describeContents ()

Implement the Parcelable interface.

Returns
int a bitmask indicating the set of special object types marshaled by this Parcelable object instance.

equals

added in API level 21
public boolean equals (Object obj)

Compares this LinkAddress instance against obj. Two addresses are equal if their address, prefix length, flags and scope are equal. Thus, for example, two addresses that have the same address and prefix length are not equal if one of them is deprecated and the other is not.

Parameters
obj Object: the object to be tested for equality.

Returns
boolean true if both objects are equal, false otherwise.

getAddress

added in API level 21
public InetAddress getAddress ()

Returns the InetAddress of this LinkAddress.

Returns
InetAddress

getFlags

added in API level 21
public int getFlags ()

Returns the flags of this LinkAddress.

Returns
int

getPrefixLength

added in API level 21
public int getPrefixLength ()

Returns the prefix length of this LinkAddress.

Returns
int

getScope

added in API level 21
public int getScope ()

Returns the scope of this LinkAddress.

Returns
int

hashCode

added in API level 21
public int hashCode ()

Returns a hashcode for this address.

Returns
int a hash code value for this object.

toString

added in API level 21
public String toString ()

Returns a string representation of this address, such as "192.0.2.1/24" or "2001:db8::1/64". The string representation does not contain the flags and scope, just the address and prefix length.

Returns
String a string representation of the object.

writeToParcel

added in API level 21
public void writeToParcel (Parcel dest, 
                int flags)

Implement the Parcelable interface.

Parameters
dest Parcel: The Parcel in which the object should be written.

flags int: Additional flags about how the object should be written. May be 0 or Parcelable.PARCELABLE_WRITE_RETURN_VALUE.
