DecimalFormatSymbols

extends Object
implements Cloneable Serializable
java.lang.Object
   ↳ java.text.DecimalFormatSymbols

Class Overview

Encapsulates the set of symbols (such as the decimal separator, the grouping separator, and so on) needed by DecimalFormat to format numbers. DecimalFormat internally creates an instance of DecimalFormatSymbols from its locale data. If you need to change any of these symbols, you can get the DecimalFormatSymbols object from your DecimalFormat and modify it.

Public Constructors

public DecimalFormatSymbols ()

Constructs a new DecimalFormatSymbols containing the symbols for the user's default locale. See "Be wary of the default locale". Best practice is to create a DecimalFormat and then to get the DecimalFormatSymbols from that object by calling getDecimalFormatSymbols().

public DecimalFormatSymbols (Locale locale)

Constructs a new DecimalFormatSymbols containing the symbols for the specified Locale. See "Be wary of the default locale". Best practice is to create a DecimalFormat and then to get the DecimalFormatSymbols from that object by calling getDecimalFormatSymbols().

Parameters
locale the locale.

Public Methods

public Object clone ()

Creates and returns a copy of this Object. The default implementation returns a so-called "shallow" copy: It creates a new instance of the same class and then copies the field values (including object references) from this instance to the new instance. A "deep" copy, in contrast, would also recursively clone nested objects. A subclass that needs to implement this kind of cloning should call super.clone() to create the new instance and then create deep copies of the nested, mutable objects.

Returns
  • a copy of this object.

public boolean equals (Object object)

Compares the specified object to this DecimalFormatSymbols and indicates if they are equal. In order to be equal, object must be an instance of DecimalFormatSymbols and contain the same symbols.

Parameters
object the object to compare with this object.
Returns
  • true if the specified object is equal to this DecimalFormatSymbols; false otherwise.
See Also

public static Locale[] getAvailableLocales ()

Returns an array of locales for which custom DecimalFormatSymbols instances are available.

Note that Android does not support user-supplied locale service providers.

public Currency getCurrency ()

Returns the currency.

null is returned if setInternationalCurrencySymbol() has been previously called with a value that is not a valid ISO 4217 currency code.

Returns
  • the currency that was set in the constructor or by calling setCurrency() or setInternationalCurrencySymbol(), or null if an invalid currency was set.

public String getCurrencySymbol ()

Returns the currency symbol.

Returns
  • the currency symbol as string.

public char getDecimalSeparator ()

Returns the character which represents the decimal point in a number.

Returns
  • the decimal separator character.

public char getDigit ()

Returns the character which represents a single digit in a format pattern.

Returns
  • the digit pattern character.

public String getExponentSeparator ()

public char getGroupingSeparator ()

Returns the character used as the thousands separator in a number.

Returns
  • the thousands separator character.

public String getInfinity ()

Returns the string which represents infinity.

Returns
  • the infinity symbol as a string.

public static DecimalFormatSymbols getInstance ()

Returns a new DecimalFormatSymbols instance for the user's default locale. See "Be wary of the default locale".

Returns
  • an instance of DecimalFormatSymbols

public static DecimalFormatSymbols getInstance (Locale locale)

Returns a new DecimalFormatSymbols for the given locale.

Parameters
locale the locale
Returns
  • an instance of DecimalFormatSymbols
Throws
NullPointerException if locale == null

public String getInternationalCurrencySymbol ()

Returns the international currency symbol.

Returns
  • the international currency symbol as string.

public char getMinusSign ()

Returns the minus sign character.

Returns
  • the minus sign as a character.

public char getMonetaryDecimalSeparator ()

Returns the character which represents the decimal point in a monetary value.

Returns
  • the monetary decimal point as a character.

public String getNaN ()

Returns the string which represents NaN.

Returns
  • the symbol NaN as a string.

public char getPatternSeparator ()

Returns the character which separates the positive and negative patterns in a format pattern.

Returns
  • the pattern separator character.

public char getPerMill ()

Returns the per mill sign character.

Returns
  • the per mill sign character.

public char getPercent ()

Returns the percent character.

Returns
  • the percent character.

public char getZeroDigit ()

Returns the character which represents zero.

Returns
  • the zero character.

public int hashCode ()

Returns an integer hash code for this object. By contract, any two objects for which equals(Object) returns true must return the same hash code value. This means that subclasses of Object usually override both methods or neither method.

Note that hash values must not change over time unless information used in equals comparisons also changes.

See Writing a correct hashCode method if you intend implementing your own hashCode method.

Returns
  • this object's hash code.

public void setCurrency (Currency currency)

Sets the currency.

The international currency symbol and the currency symbol are updated, but the min and max number of fraction digits stays the same.

public void setDigit (char value)

Sets the character which represents a single digit in a format pattern.

Parameters
value the digit character.

public void setExponentSeparator (String value)

Sets the string used to separate mantissa and exponent. Typically "E", as in "1.2E3".

Sets the character used as the thousands separator in a number.

Parameters
value the grouping separator character.

Parameters
value the currency code.

public void setMinusSign (char value)

Sets the minus sign character.

Parameters
value the minus sign character.

public void setMonetaryDecimalSeparator (char value)

Sets the character which represents the decimal point in a monetary value.

Sets the percent character.

Parameters
value the percent character.

public void setZeroDigit (char value)

Sets the character which represents zero.

Parameters
value the zero digit character.

public String toString ()

Returns a string containing a concise, human-readable description of this object. Subclasses are encouraged to override this method and provide an implementation that takes into account the object's type and data. The default implementation is equivalent to the following expression:

   getClass().getName() + '@' + Integer.toHexString(hashCode())

See Writing a useful toString method if you intend implementing your own toString method.

Returns
  • a printable representation of this object.
