CharSequence getTransformation(CharSequence source, View view)

Returns a CharSequence that is a transformation of the source text -- for example, replacing each character with a dot in a password field.

void onFocusChanged(View view, CharSequence sourceText, boolean focused, int direction, Rect previouslyFocusedRect)

This method is called when the TextView that uses this TransformationMethod gains or loses focus.

Public methods

afterTextChanged

Added in API level 1
void afterTextChanged (Editable s)

This method is called to notify you that, somewhere within s, the text has been changed. It is legitimate to make further changes to s from this callback, but be careful not to get yourself into an infinite loop, because any changes you make will cause this method to be called again recursively. (You are not told where the change took place because other afterTextChanged() methods may already have made other changes and invalidated the offsets. But if you need to know here, you can use setSpan(Object, int, int, int) in onTextChanged(CharSequence, int, int, int) to mark your place and then look up from here where the span ended up.

Parameters
s Editable

beforeTextChanged

Added in API level 1
void beforeTextChanged (CharSequence s, 
                int start, 
                int count, 
                int after)

This method is called to notify you that, within s, the count characters beginning at start are about to be replaced by new text with length after. It is an error to attempt to make changes to s from this callback.

Parameters
s CharSequence
start int
count int
after int

getInstance

Added in API level 1
PasswordTransformationMethod getInstance ()

Returns
PasswordTransformationMethod

getTransformation

Added in API level 1
CharSequence getTransformation (CharSequence source, 
                View view)

Returns a CharSequence that is a transformation of the source text -- for example, replacing each character with a dot in a password field. Beware that the returned text must be exactly the same length as the source text, and that if the source text is Editable, the returned text must mirror it dynamically instead of doing a one-time copy.

Parameters
source CharSequence
view View
Returns
CharSequence

onFocusChanged

Added in API level 1
void onFocusChanged (View view, 
                CharSequence sourceText, 
                boolean focused, 
                int direction, 
                Rect previouslyFocusedRect)

This method is called when the TextView that uses this TransformationMethod gains or loses focus.

Parameters
view View
sourceText CharSequence
focused boolean
direction int
previouslyFocusedRect Rect

onTextChanged

Added in API level 1
void onTextChanged (CharSequence s, 
                int start, 
                int before, 
                int count)

This method is called to notify you that, within s, the count characters beginning at start have just replaced old text that had length before. It is an error to attempt to make changes to s from this callback.

Parameters
s CharSequence
start int
before int
count int
