Class AngleFormat

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    Serializable, Cloneable, Localized

    public class AngleFormat
    extends Format
    implements Localized
    Parses and formats angles according a specified pattern. The pattern is a string containing any characters, with a special meaning for the following characters:
    Reserved characters
    SymbolMeaning
    DThe integer part of degrees
    dThe fractional part of degrees
    MThe integer part of minutes
    mThe fractional part of minutes
    SThe integer part of seconds
    sThe fractional part of seconds
    #Fraction digits shown only if non-zero
    .The decimal separator
    ?Omit the preceding field if zero
    Upper-case letters D, M and S stand for the integer parts of degrees, minutes and seconds respectively. If present, they shall appear in that order.
    Example: "M′D" is illegal because "M" and "S" are in reverse order. "D°S" is also illegal because "M" is missing between "D" and "S".
    Lower-case letters d, m and s stand for fractional parts of degrees, minutes and seconds respectively. Only one of those can appear in a pattern. If present, they must be in the last field.
    Example: "D​.dd°MM′" is illegal because "d" is followed by "M". "D​.mm" is also illegal because "m" is not the fractional part of "D".
    The number of occurrences of D, M, S and their lower-case counterpart is the number of digits to format.
    Example: "DD​.ddd" will format angles with two digits for the integer part and three digits for the fractional part (e.g. 4.4578 will be formatted as "04.458").
    Separator characters like °, and are inserted "as-is" in the formatted string, except the decimal separator dot (.) which is replaced by the local-dependent decimal separator. Separator characters may be completely omitted; Angle­Format will still differentiate degrees, minutes and seconds fields according the pattern.
    Example: "0480439" with the "DDDMMmm" pattern will be parsed as 48°04.39′.
    The ? modifier specifies that the preceding field can be omitted if its value is zero. Any field can be omitted for Angle object, but only trailing fields are omitted for Longitude and Latitude.
    Example: "DD°MM′?SS″?" will format an angle of 12.01° as 12°36″, but a longitude of 12.01°N as 12°00′36″N (not 12°36″N).
    The above special case exists because some kind of angles are expected to be very small (e.g. rotation angles in Bursa-Wolf parameters are given in arc-seconds), while longitude and latitude values are usually distributed over their full ±180° or ±90° range. Since longitude or latitude values without the degrees field are unusual, omitting that field is likely to increase the risk of confusion in those cases.
    Examples:

    DD°MM′SS.#″ 48°30′00″ -12°31′52.5″

      • setMaximumWidth

        public void setMaximumWidth​(int width)
        Modifies, if needed, the pattern in order to fit formatted angles in the given maximum total width. This method applies zero, one or more of the following changes, in that order:
        1. If needed, reduce the maximum number of fraction digits.
        2. If omitting all fraction digits would not be sufficient for fitting a formatted angle in the given width, remove the seconds field (if any) from the pattern.
        3. If the above changes are not sufficient, remove the minutes field (if any) from the pattern.
        4. If the above changes are not sufficient, set the minimal width of degrees field to 1.
        Note that despite the above changes, formatted angles may still be larger than the given width if that width is small, or if the formatted angles are too large in magnitude.

        This method does not take into account the space needed for the hemisphere symbol when formatting Latitude or Longitude objects.

        Parameters:
        width - the maximum total width of formatted angle.
      • format

        public final String format​(double angle)
        Formats an angle. The angle will be formatted according the pattern given to the last call of apply­Pattern(String).
        Parameters:
        angle - angle to format, in decimal degrees.
        Returns:
        the formatted string.
      • format

        public StringBuffer format​(double angle,
                                   StringBuffer toAppendTo,
                                   FieldPosition pos)
        Formats an angle in the given buffer. The angle will be formatted according the pattern given to the last call of apply­Pattern(String).
        Parameters:
        angle - angle to format, in decimal degrees.
        to­Append­To - the buffer where to append the formatted angle.
        pos - an optional object where to store the position of the field in the formatted text, or null if this information is not wanted. This field position shall be created with one of the Angle­Format​.Field constants.
        Returns:
        the to­Append­To buffer, returned for method calls chaining.
      • format

        public StringBuffer format​(Object value,
                                   StringBuffer toAppendTo,
                                   FieldPosition pos)
                            throws IllegalArgumentException
        Formats an angle, latitude or longitude value in the given buffer. The angular values will be formatted according the pattern given to the last call of apply­Pattern(String), with some variations that depend on the value class:
        • If value is a Latitude instance, then the value is formatted as a positive angle followed by the "N" (positive value) or "S" (negative value) symbol.
        • If value is a Longitude instance, then the value is formatted as a positive angle followed by the "E" (positive value) or "W" (negative value) symbol.
        • If value is any Angle other than a Latitude or Longitude, then it is formatted as by the format(double, String­Buffer, Field­Position) method.
        Specified by:
        format in class Format
        Parameters:
        value - Angle object to format.
        to­Append­To - the buffer where to append the formatted angle.
        pos - an optional object where to store the position of the field in the formatted text, or null if this information is not wanted. This field position shall be created with one of the Angle­Format​.Field constants.
        Returns:
        the to­Append­To buffer, returned for method calls chaining.
        Throws:
        Illegal­Argument­Exception - if value if not an instance of Angle.
      • formatToCharacterIterator

        public AttributedCharacterIterator formatToCharacterIterator​(Object value)
        Formats an angle, latitude or longitude value as an attributed character iterator. Callers can iterate and queries the attribute values as in the following example:
        AttributedCharacterIterator it = angleFormat.formatToCharacterIterator(myAngle);
        for (char c=it.first(); c!=AttributedCharacterIterator.DONE; c=c.next()) {
            // 'c' is a character from the formatted string.
            if (it.getAttribute(AngleFormat.Field.MINUTES) != null) {
                // If we enter this block, then the character 'c' is part of the minutes field,
                // This field extends from it.getRunStart(MINUTES) to it.getRunLimit(MINUTES).
            }
        }
        Alternatively, if the current iterator index is before the start of the minutes field, then the starting position of that field can be obtained directly by it​.get­Run­Limit(MINUTES). If the current iterator index is inside the minutes field, then the above method call will rather returns the end of that field. The same strategy works for other all fields too.

        The returned character iterator contains all Number­Format​.Field attributes in addition to the Angle­Format​.Field ones. Consequently the same character may have more than one attribute. For example when formatting 45°30′15.0″N, then:

        In Apache SIS implementation, the returned character iterator also implements the Char­Sequence interface for convenience.
        Overrides:
        format­To­Character­Iterator in class Format
        Parameters:
        value - the Angle object to format.
        Returns:
        a character iterator together with the attributes describing the formatted value.
        Throws:
        Illegal­Argument­Exception - if value if not an instance of Angle.
      • parse

        public Angle parse​(String source,
                           ParsePosition pos)
        Parses the given string as an angle. This method can parse the string even if it is not strictly compliant to the expected pattern. For example if is­Fallback­Allowed() is true, then this method will parse "48°12.34'" correctly even if the expected pattern was "DDMM​.mm" (i.e. the string should have been "4812.34").

        If the given string ends with a "N" or "S" hemisphere symbol, then this method returns an instance of Latitude. Otherwise if the string ends with a "E" or "W" symbol, then this method returns an instance of Longitude. Otherwise this method returns an instance of Angle.

        This method is stricter than the parse(String) method regarding whitespaces between the degrees, minutes and seconds fields. This is because whitespaces could be used as a separator for other kinds of values. If the string is known to contain only an angle value, use parse(String) instead.

        Parameters:
        source - the string to parse.
        pos - on input, index of the first source character to read. On output, index after the last parsed character.
        Returns:
        the parsed string as an Angle, Latitude or Longitude object.
        See Also:
        is­Fallback­Allowed()
      • isFallbackAllowed

        public boolean isFallbackAllowed()
        Returns true if the parse methods are allowed to fallback on the build-in default symbols if the string to parse doesn't match the applied pattern.
        Returns:
        true if the ASCII quote characters are allowed at parsing time.
      • setFallbackAllowed

        public void setFallbackAllowed​(boolean allowed)
        Sets whether the parse methods are allowed to fallback on the build-in default symbols if the string to parse doesn't match the applied pattern. The build-in fallback is:
        • ° (an extended-ASCII character) or space (in parse(String) method only) for degrees.
        • ' (an ASCII character) or (the default Unicode character) for minutes.
        • " (an ASCII character) or (the default Unicode character) for seconds.
        The default value is true, because many end-users will not enter the Unicode and symbols. However developers may need to set this flag to false if those ASCII symbols are used in a wider context (for example the " character for quoting strings).
        Parameters:
        allowed - true if the ASCII quote characters are allowed at parsing time.
      • getLocale

        public Locale getLocale()

        Specified by:
        get­Locale in interface Localized
        Returns:
        this formatter locale (never null).
      • clone

        public AngleFormat clone()
        Returns a clone of this Angle­Format.
        Overrides:

        a clone of this format.
      • hashCode

        public int hashCode()
        Returns a "hash value" for this object.

        Compares this format with the specified object for equality.
        Overrides:
        equals in class Object
        Parameters:
        object - the object to compare with this angle format for equality.
      • toString

        public String toString()
        Returns a string representation of this object for debugging purpose.
        Overrides:
        to­String in class Object
