Enum UnitFormat.Style

All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable, Comparable<Unit­Format​.Style>, Constable
Enclosing class:

public static enum UnitFormat.Style extends Enum<UnitFormat.Style>
Identify whether unit formatting uses ASCII symbols, Unicode symbols or full localized names. For example the Units​.CUBIC_METRE units can be formatted in the following ways:
  • As a symbol using Unicode characters:
  • As a symbol restricted to the ASCII characters set: m3
  • As a long name:
    • in English: cubic metre
    • in French: mètre cube

Defined in the sis-utility module

    • SYMBOL

      public static final UnitFormat.Style SYMBOL
      Format unit symbols using Unicode characters. Units formatted in this style use superscript digits for exponents (as in “m³”), the dot operator (“⋅”) for multiplications, specialized characters when they exist (e.g. U+212A “K” for Kelvin sign), etc.

      This is the default style of Unit­Format.

    • UCUM

      public static final UnitFormat.Style UCUM
      Format unit symbols using a syntax close to the Unified Code for Units of Measure (UCUM) one. The character set is restricted to ASCII. The multiplication operator is the period (“.”).

      Modification to UCUM syntax rules

      UCUM does not allow floating point numbers in unit terms, so the use of period as an operator should not be ambiguous. However Apache SIS relaxes this restriction in order to support the scale factors commonly found in angular units (e.g. π/180). The meaning of a period in a string is resolved with two SIS-specific rules:
      • Unit symbols shall not begin or end with a decimal digit or a superscript.
      • A period between two decimal digits is interpreted as a decimal separator.

    • NAME

      public static final UnitFormat.Style NAME
      Format unit symbols as localized long names if known, or Unicode symbols otherwise.

    • values

      public static UnitFormat.Style[] values()
      Returns an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared.

    • valueOf

      public static UnitFormat.Style valueOf(String name)
      Returns the enum constant of this type with the specified name. The string must match exactly an identifier used to declare an enum constant in this type. (Extraneous whitespace characters are not permitted.)
      name - the name of the enum constant to be returned.
      the enum constant with the specified name
      Illegal­Argument­Exception - if this enum type has no constant with the specified name
      Null­Pointer­Exception - if the argument is null
