abstract void clear()
Convenience for replace(0, length(), "", 0, 0)
abstract void clearSpans()
Removes all spans from the Editable, as if by calling removeSpan(Object) on each of them.
abstract Editable delete(int st, int en)
Convenience for replace(st, en, "", 0, 0)
abstract InputFilter[] getFilters()
Returns the array of input filters that are currently applied to changes to this Editable.
abstract Editable insert(int where, CharSequence text)
Convenience for replace(where, where, text, 0, text.length());
abstract Editable insert(int where, CharSequence text, int start, int end)
Convenience for replace(where, where, text, start, end)
abstract Editable replace(int st, int en, CharSequence source, int start, int end)
Replaces the specified range (st…en) of text in this Editable with a copy of the slice start…end from source.
abstract Editable replace(int st, int en, CharSequence text)
Convenience for replace(st, en, text, 0, text.length())

Public Methods

public abstract Editable append (char text)

Convenience for append(String.valueOf(text)).

Parameters
text The character to append
Returns
  • A reference to this Appendable

public abstract Editable append (CharSequence text, int start, int end)

Convenience for replace(length(), length(), text, start, end)

Parameters
text The character sequence from which a subsequence will be appended. If csq is null, then characters will be appended as if csq contained the four characters "null".
start The index of the first character in the subsequence
end The index of the character following the last character in the subsequence
Returns
  • A reference to this Appendable

public abstract Editable append (CharSequence text)

Convenience for replace(length(), length(), text, 0, text.length())

Parameters
text The character sequence to append. If csq is null, then the four characters "null" are appended to this Appendable.
Returns
  • A reference to this Appendable

public abstract void clear ()

public abstract void clearSpans ()

Removes all spans from the Editable, as if by calling removeSpan(Object) on each of them.

public abstract Editable delete (int st, int en)

Convenience for replace(st, en, "", 0, 0)

public abstract InputFilter[] getFilters ()

Returns the array of input filters that are currently applied to changes to this Editable.

public abstract Editable insert (int where, CharSequence text)

Convenience for replace(where, where, text, 0, text.length());

public abstract Editable insert (int where, CharSequence text, int start, int end)

Convenience for replace(where, where, text, start, end)

public abstract Editable replace (int st, int en, CharSequence source, int start, int end)

Replaces the specified range (st…en) of text in this Editable with a copy of the slice start…end from source. The destination slice may be empty, in which case the operation is an insertion, or the source slice may be empty, in which case the operation is a deletion.

Before the change is committed, each filter that was set with setFilters(InputFilter[]) is given the opportunity to modify the source text.

If source is Spanned, the spans from it are preserved into the Editable. Existing spans within the Editable that entirely cover the replaced range are retained, but any that were strictly within the range that was replaced are removed. As a special case, the cursor position is preserved even when the entire range where it is located is replaced.

Returns
  • a reference to this object.

public abstract Editable replace (int st, int en, CharSequence text)

Convenience for replace(st, en, text, 0, text.length())

public abstract void setFilters (InputFilter[] filters)

Sets the series of filters that will be called in succession whenever the text of this Editable is changed, each of which has the opportunity to limit or transform the text that is being inserted.
