ParsePosition

public class ParsePosition
extends Object

java.lang.Object
   ↳ java.text.ParsePosition


ParsePosition is a simple class used by Format and its subclasses to keep track of the current position during parsing. The parseObject method in the various Format classes requires a ParsePosition object as an argument.

By design, as you parse through a string with different formats, you can use the same ParsePosition, since the index parameter records the current position.

Retrieve the current parse position. On input to a parse method, this is the index of the character at which parsing will begin; on output, it is the index of the character following the last character parsed.

Returns
int the current parse position

hashCode

added in API level 1
int hashCode ()

Returns a hash code for this ParsePosition.

Returns
int a hash code value for this object

setErrorIndex

added in API level 1
void setErrorIndex (int ei)

Set the index at which a parse error occurred. Formatters should set this before returning an error code from their parseObject method. The default value is -1 if this is not set.

Parameters
ei int: the index at which an error occurred

setIndex

added in API level 1
void setIndex (int index)

Set the current parse position.

Parameters
index int: the current parse position
