public class NumericFormat
extends Object
implements com.esri.arcgis.interop.RemoteObjRef, INumberFormat, INumericFormat, INumberFormatOperations, IClone, IPersist, IPersistStream, IXMLSerialize, Externalizable

An object for formatting numbers in a variety of numeric formats.

Description

The NumericFormat is used to determine how numbers are formatted when using the ValueToString and StringToValue methods from the associated INumberFormat interface.

The format produced with the NumericFormat coclass object is determined solely by the INumericFormat interface property settings.

For each of the coclasses, the combination of properties on both interfaces Formats produced with other coclasses that support INumericFormat depend on the property settings of two interfaces: the INumericFormat interface as well as the implemented interface within the numeric format coclasses. This means that the NumericFormat coclass can be used for the general formatting of numbers (such as number of decimal places and plus sign), while the other coclasses that support INumericFormat can perform special formatting (such as rates, latitude– longitude, and percentages) by using a combination of INumericFormat and their own interface.

                     UnknownHostException
Constructs a NumericFormat using ArcGIS Engine.

Throws:
IOException - if there are interop problems
UnknownHostException - if there are interop problems

NumericFormat

public NumericFormat(Object obj)
              throws IOException
Deprecated. As of ArcGIS 9.2, replaced by normal Java casts.
NumericFormat theNumericFormat = (NumericFormat) obj;

Construct a NumericFormat using a reference to such an object returned from ArcGIS Engine or Server. This is semantically equivalent to casting obj to NumericFormat.

Parameters:
obj - an object returned from ArcGIS Engine or Server
Throws:
IOException - if there are interop problems
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).

Positive numbers are formatted with a plus (+) sign. Zero values are formatted without a plus sign. Negative numbers are formatted with a minus (-) sign.

Remarks

Using ShowPlusSign can be useful in conjunction with IFormattedGridLabel, where a user might not know if the number is above or below the Equator, or east or west of the Central Meridian.

Also see the ShowDirections property in ILatLonFormat.

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

Supported Platforms

Windows, Solaris, Linux

Specified by:
isShowPlusSign in interface INumericFormat
Returns:
The show
Throws:
IOException - If there are interop problems.
AutomationException - If the ArcObject component throws an exception.

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.
