Public methods

forName

Added in API level 1
Character.UnicodeBlock forName (String blockName)

Returns the UnicodeBlock with the given name. Block names are determined by The Unicode Standard. The file Blocks-<version>.txt defines blocks for a particular version of the standard. The Character class specifies the version of the standard that it supports.

This method accepts block names in the following forms:

  1. Canonical block names as defined by the Unicode Standard. For example, the standard defines a "Basic Latin" block. Therefore, this method accepts "Basic Latin" as a valid block name. The documentation of each UnicodeBlock provides the canonical name.
  2. Canonical block names with all spaces removed. For example, "BasicLatin" is a valid block name for the "Basic Latin" block.
  3. The text representation of each constant UnicodeBlock identifier. For example, this method will return the BASIC_LATIN block if provided with the "BASIC_LATIN" name. This form replaces all spaces and hyphens in the canonical name with underscores.
Finally, character case is ignored for all of the valid block name forms. For example, "BASIC_LATIN" and "basic_latin" are both valid block names. The en_US locale's case mapping rules are used to provide case-insensitive string comparisons for block name validation.

If the Unicode Standard changes block names, both the previous and current names will be accepted.

Parameters
blockName String: A UnicodeBlock name.
Returns
Character.UnicodeBlock The UnicodeBlock instance identified by blockName
Throws
IllegalArgumentException if blockName is an invalid name
NullPointerException if blockName is null

of

Added in API level 1
Character.UnicodeBlock of (char c)

Returns the object representing the Unicode block containing the given character, or null if the character is not a member of a defined block.

Note: This method cannot handle supplementary characters. To support all Unicode characters, including supplementary characters, use the of(int) method.

Parameters
c char: The character in question
Returns
Character.UnicodeBlock The UnicodeBlock instance representing the Unicode block of which this character is a member, or null if the character is not a member of any Unicode block

of

Added in API level 1
Character.UnicodeBlock of (int codePoint)

Returns the object representing the Unicode block containing the given character (Unicode code point), or null if the character is not a member of a defined block.

Parameters
codePoint int: the character (Unicode code point) in question.
Returns
Character.UnicodeBlock The UnicodeBlock instance representing the Unicode block of which this character is a member, or null if the character is not a member of any Unicode block
Throws
IllegalArgumentException if the specified codePoint is an invalid Unicode code point.
