public class CustomNumberFormat
extends Object
implements com.esri.arcgis.interop.RemoteObjRef, INumberFormat, ICustomNumberFormat, INumberFormatOperations, IClone, IPersist, IPersistStream, Externalizable

An object for formatting numbers in a user-defined format.

Description

CustomNumberFormat is an ICustomNumberFormat interface coclass whose members determine how the ValueToString method in the associated INumberFormat interface formats numbers. Define your own customized format using the FormatString property.

The custom-number-format object and its default interface allow numeric values to be formatted as strings. It works by pattern matching and allows conversions, such as changing ValueToString(12345678.9) to “12,345,678.90 dollars”.

Method Detail

getClsid

public static String getClsid()
getClsid.


equals

public boolean equals(Object o)
Compare this object with another

Overrides:
equals in class Object

hashCode

public int hashCode()
the hashcode for this object

Overrides:
hashCode in class Object

valueToString

public String valueToString(double value)
                     throws IOException,
                            AutomationException
Converts a numeric value to a formatted string.

Description

The ValueToString method expresses a numeric value as a formatted string. The string is formatted based on the property settings of the number formatting interface that is used. See the particular number formatting interface you're interested in under See Also above for more information.

Product Availability

Available with ArcGIS Engine, ArcGIS Desktop, and ArcGIS Server.

Supported Platforms

Windows, Solaris, Linux

Specified by:
valueToString in interface INumberFormat
Parameters:
value - The value (in)
Returns:
The str
Throws:
IOException - If there are interop problems.
AutomationException - If the ArcObject component throws an exception.

stringToValue

public double stringToValue(String str)
                     throws IOException,
                            AutomationException
Converts a formatted string to a numeric value.

Description

The StringToValue method obtains a numerical value from a formatted string. The string doesn't necessarily need to have been formatted with the ValueToString method, but the string needs to look like it would be if it was formatted with the associated interface's implementation of the ValueToString method. See the particular number formatting interface you're interested in under See Also above for more information.

Remarks

When using the StringToValue method to obtain a ValueToString argument value, the properties in the associated interface must be set the same as they were when the ValueToString method was used. This applies in cases where ValueToString may perform a numerical conversion (in the IAngleFormat, IFractionFormat, IPercentageFormat, and IRateFormat interfaces).

setFormatString

public void setFormatString(String str)
                     throws IOException,
                            AutomationException
A user-defined format expression.

Description

The following table identifies characters you can use to create user-defined number formats that you can pass as a format expression in the FormatString property:

Character Description
None Display the number with no formatting.
(0) Digit placeholder. Display a digit or a zero. If the expression has a digit in the position where the 0 appears in the format string, display it; otherwise, display a zero in that position.

If the number has fewer digits than there are zeros (on either side of the decimal) in the format expression, display leading or trailing zeros. If the number has more digits to the right of the decimal separator than there are zeros to the right of the decimal separator in the format expression, round the number to as many decimal places as there are zeros. If the number has more digits to the left of the decimal separator than there are zeros to the left of the decimal separator in the format expression, display the extra digits without modification.

(#) Digit placeholder. Display a digit or nothing. If the expression has a digit in the position where the # appears in the format string, display it; otherwise, display nothing in that position.

This symbol works like the 0 digit placeholder, except that leading and trailing zeros aren't displayed if the number has the same or fewer digits than there are # characters on either side of the decimal separator in the format expression.

(.) Decimal placeholder. In some locales, a comma is used as the decimal separator. The decimal placeholder determines how many digits are displayed to the left and right of the decimal separator. If the format expression contains only number signs to the left of this symbol, numbers smaller than 1 begin with a decimal separator. To display a leading zero displayed with fractional numbers, use 0 as the first digit placeholder to the left of the decimal separator. The actual character used as a decimal placeholder in the formatted output depends on the Number Format recognized by your system.
(,) Thousand separator. In some locales, a period is used as a thousand separator. The thousand separator separates thousands from hundreds within a number that has four or more places to the left of the decimal separator. Standard use of the thousand separator is specified if the format contains a thousand separator surrounded by digit placeholders (0 or #). The actual character used as the thousand separator in the formatted output depends on the Number Format recognized by your system.
("ABC")

Literal string. You can place literal strings on either side of numeric placeholders. For example, you could define a format expression as "The formatted number is: ###,###.#0"

Remarks

The actual characters used as decimal placeholders and thousands separators in the formatted output depends on the Number Format recognized by the system at runtime. To change the way numbers are formatted, change the settings on the Numbers tab of Control Panel's Regional Settings applet.

To try out various formatting options using this interface, select CustomNumberFormat from the dropdown list in the NumberFormat Viewer developer sample.

getFormatString

public String getFormatString()
                       throws IOException,
                              AutomationException
A user-defined format expression.

The following table identifies characters you can use to create user-defined number formats that you can pass as a format expression in the FormatString property:

Character Description
None Display the number with no formatting.
(0) Digit placeholder. Display a digit or a zero. If the expression has a digit in the position where the 0 appears in the format string, display it; otherwise, display a zero in that position.

If the number has more digits to the left of the decimal separator than there are zeros to the left of the decimal separator in the format expression, display the extra digits without modification.

(#) Digit placeholder. Display a digit or nothing. If the expression has a digit in the position where the # appears in the format string, display it; otherwise, display nothing in that position.

This symbol works like the 0 digit placeholder, except that leading and trailing zeros aren't displayed if the number has the same or fewer digits than there are # characters on either side of the decimal separator in the format expression.

The actual character used as the thousand separator in the formatted output depends on the Number Format recognized by your system.
("ABC")

Literal string. You can place literal strings on either side of numeric placeholders. For example, you could define a format expression as "The formatted number is: ###,###.#0"

All of the above can be combined to produce complex results. For example, using ValueToString with a value of 12345678.9 and a FormatString of ‘$#,###,###.#0 bucks’, the output should be “$12,345,678.90 bucks”.

The NumberFormatDialog class provides a graphical user interface for the properties of the number format objects. This class is defined in the esriFramework assembly.

Remarks

The actual characters used as decimal placeholders and thousands separators in the formatted output depends on the Number Format recognized by the system at runtime. To change the way numbers are formatted, change the settings on the Numbers tab of Control Panel's Regional Settings applet.

increment

public double increment(double value)
                 throws IOException,
                        AutomationException
Increments a value according to the numbers format.

Remarks

The Increment method reacts differently depending on the number format object used and how that object is configured. A NumericFormat configured for a specific number of decimal places will increment to the last decimal place. For example, if two decimal places are specified, 22.533 would increment to 22.54; if the object is configured for two significant digits, 22.533 would increment to 24. For an AngleFormat, the input value is converted to the display format first then the same rules apply as for a NumericFormat.
