Class ParameterFormat

All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable, Cloneable, Localized

public class ParameterFormat extends TabularFormat<Object>
Formats parameter descriptors or parameter values in a tabular format. This format assumes a monospaced font and an encoding supporting drawing box characters (e.g. UTF-8).

This class can format parameters with different levels of verbosity, specified by the Parameter­Format​.Content­Level property. The content level controls whether the formatter should write all names and aliases (at the cost of multi-line rows), or to pickup one name per parameter for a more compact table. See Parameter­Format​.Content­Level javadoc for output examples.

Example: The Mercator (variant A) example given in Default­Parameter­Descriptor­Group javadoc will be formatted by default as below:
EPSG: Mercator (variant A)
┌────────────────────────────────┬────────┬────────────┬───────────────┬───────────────┐
│ Name (EPSG)                    │ Type   │ Obligation │ Value domain  │ Default value │
├────────────────────────────────┼────────┼────────────┼───────────────┼───────────────┤
│ Latitude of natural origin     │ Double │ Mandatory  │  [-80 … 84]°  │         0.0°  │
│ Longitude of natural origin    │ Double │ Mandatory  │ [-180 … 180]° │         0.0°  │
│ Scale factor at natural origin │ Double │ Mandatory  │    (0 … ∞)    │         1.0   │
│ False easting                  │ Double │ Mandatory  │   (−∞ … ∞) m  │         0.0 m │
│ False northing                 │ Double │ Mandatory  │   (−∞ … ∞) m  │         0.0 m │

The kinds of objects accepted by this formatter are:
Formattable object types
Class Remarks
ParameterValueGroupDefault values column is replaced by a column of the actual values.
ParameterDescriptorGroupTable caption is the parameter group name.
OperationMethodTable caption is the method name (not necessarily the same than parameter group name).
IdentifiedObject[]Accepted only for Parameter­Format​.Content­Level​.NAME_SUMMARY.

Limitations

  • The current implementation can only format features — parsing is not yet implemented.
  • Parameter­Format, like most java​.text​.Format subclasses, is not thread-safe.

  • Method Details

    • getValueType

      public final Class<Object> getValueType()
      Returns the type of objects formatted by this class. This method has to return Object​.class since it is the only common parent to all object types accepted by this formatter.
      Specified by:
      get­Value­Type in class Compound­Format<Object>
      Returns:
      Object​.class
    • getLocale

      public Locale getLocale(Locale.Category category)
      Returns the locale for the given category.
      Overrides:
      get­Locale in class Compound­Format<Object>
      Parameters:
      category - the category for which a locale is desired.
      Returns:
      the locale for the given category (never null).
    • getContentLevel

      public ParameterFormat.ContentLevel getContentLevel()
      Returns the amount of information to put in the table. The default value is Parameter­Format​.Content­Level​.BRIEF.
      Returns:
      the table content.
    • setContentLevel

      public void setContentLevel(ParameterFormat.ContentLevel level)
      Sets the amount of information to put in the table.
      Parameters:
      level - the amount of information to put in the table.
    • getPreferredCodespaces

      public String[] getPreferredCodespaces()
      Returns the code spaces of names, aliases and identifiers to show, or null if there is no restriction. This method returns the sequence specified by the last call to set­Preferred­Codespaces(String[]), without duplicated values.

      The default value is null.

      Returns:
      the code spaces of names and identifiers to show, or null if no restriction.
    • setPreferredCodespaces

      public void setPreferredCodespaces(String... codespaces)
      Filters names, aliases and identifiers by their code spaces. If the given array is non-null, then the only names, aliases and identifiers to be formatted are those having a Reference­Identifier​.get­Code­Space(), Scoped­Name​.head() or Generic­Name​.scope() value in the given list, unless no name or alias matches this criterion.
      Parameters:
      codespaces - the preferred code spaces of names, aliases and identifiers to format, or null for accepting all of them. Some typical values are "EPSG", "OGC" or "Geo­TIFF".
    • getColors

      public Colors getColors()
      Returns the colors for an output on X3.64 compatible terminal, or null if none. The default value is null.
      Returns:
      the colors for an output on X3.64 compatible terminal, or null if none.
    • setColors

      public void setColors(Colors colors)
      Sets the colors for an output on X3.64 compatible terminal.
      Parameters:
      colors - the colors for an output on X3.64 compatible terminal, or null if none.
    • format

      public void format(Object object, Appendable toAppendTo) throws IOException
      Formats the given object to the given stream of buffer. The object may be an instance of any of the following types:
      Specified by:
      format in class Compound­Format<Object>
      Parameters:
      object - the object to format.
      to­Append­To - where to format the object.
      Throws:
      IOException - if an error occurred while writing to the given appendable.
    • parse

      parse in class Compound­Format<Object>
      Parameters:
      text - the character sequence for the object to parse.

      Returns:
      currently never return.
      Throws:
