public class QLocale
extends QtJambiObject
implements java.lang.Cloneable

The QLocale class converts between numbers and their string representations in various languages. QLocale is initialized with a language/country pair in its constructor and offers number-to-string and string-to-number conversion functions similar to those in QString.

Example:

        QLocale egyptian = new QLocale(QLocale.Language.Arabic, QLocale.Country.Egypt);
        String s1 = egyptian.toString(1.571429E+07, (byte) 'e');
        String s2 = egyptian.toString(10);

        double d = egyptian.toDouble(s1);
        int i = egyptian.toInt(s2);
QLocale supports the concept of a default locale, which is determined from the system's locale settings at application startup. The default locale can be changed by calling the static member setDefault(). Setting the default locale has the following effects: The following example illustrates how to use QLocale directly:
        QLocale.setDefault(new QLocale(QLocale.Language.Hebrew, QLocale.Country.Israel));
        QLocale hebrew = new QLocale(); // Constructs a default QLocale
        String s1 = hebrew.toString(15714.3, (byte) 'e');

        double d;

        d = hebrew.toDouble("1234,56");   // d == 0.0
        d = hebrew.toDouble("1234.56");   // d == 1234.56
When a language/country pair is specified in the constructor, one of three things can happen: The "C" locale is identical to English /UnitedStates .

Use language() and country() to determine the actual language and country values used.

An alternative method for constructing a QLocale object is by specifying the locale name.

        QLocale korean = new QLocale("ko");
        QLocale swiss = new QLocale("de_CH");
This constructor converts the locale name to a language/country pair; it does not use the system locale database.

Constructor Detail

QLocale

public QLocale()
Constructs a QLocale object initialized with the default locale. If no default locale was set using setDefaultLocale(), this locale will be the same as the one returned by system().

See also:
setDefault().


QLocale

public QLocale(QLocale.Language language)
Constructs a QLocale object with the specified language and country. The language and country that are actually used can be queried using language() and country().

See also:
setDefault(), language(), and country().


QLocale

public QLocale(QLocale.Language language,
               QLocale.Country country)
Constructs a QLocale object with the specified language and country. The language and country that are actually used can be queried using language() and country().

See also:
setDefault(), language(), and country().


QLocale

public QLocale(QLocale other)
Constructs a QLocale object as a copy of other.


QLocale

public QLocale(java.lang.String name)
Constructs a QLocale object with the specified name, which has the format "language[_country][. odeset][@modifier]" or "C", where: If the string violates the locale format, or language is not a valid ISO 369 code, the "C" locale is used instead. If country is not present, or is not a valid ISO 3166 code, the most appropriate country is chosen for the specified language.

The language and country codes are converted to their respective Language and Country enums. After this conversion is performed the constructor behaves exactly like QLocale(Country, Language).

This constructor is much slower than QLocale(Country, Language).

name().

                          java.lang.String format)
Parses the time string given in string and returns the time. See QTime::fromString() for information on what is a valid format string.

If the time could not be parsed, returns an invalid time.

zeroDigit

public final char zeroDigit()
Returns the zero digit character of this locale.


c

public static QLocale c()
Returns a QLocale object initialized to the "C" locale.

See also:
system().


countriesForLanguage

public static java.util.List countriesForLanguage(QLocale.Language lang)
Returns the list of countries that have entires for language in Qt's locale database. If the result is an empty list, then language is not represented in Qt's locale database.


countryToString

public static java.lang.String countryToString(QLocale.Country country)
Returns a QString containing the name of country.

See also:
country(), and name().


languageToString

public static java.lang.String languageToString(QLocale.Language language)
Returns a QString containing the name of language.

See also:
countryToString(), and name().


setDefault

public static void setDefault(QLocale locale)
Sets the global default locale to locale. These values are used when a QLocale object is constructed with no arguments. If this function is not called, the system's locale is used.

Warning: In a multithreaded application, the default locale should be set at application startup, before any non-GUI threads are created.

See also:
system(), and c().


system

public static QLocale system()
Returns a QLocale object initialized to the system locale.

On Windows and Mac, this locale will use the decimal/grouping characters and date/time formats specified in the system configuration panel.

See also:
QTextCodec::locale(), and c().


toDouble

public final double toDouble(java.lang.String s)
Returns the double represented by the localized string s, or 0.0 if the conversion failed. This function ignores leading and trailing whitespace.


toFloat

public final float toFloat(java.lang.String s)
Returns the float represented by the localized string s, or 0.0 if the conversion failed. This function ignores leading and trailing whitespace.


toInt

public final int toInt(java.lang.String s,
                       int base)
Returns the int represented by the localized string s, using base base. If base is 0 the base is determined automatically using the following rules: If the string begins with "0x", it is assumed to be hexadecimal; if it begins with "0", it is assumed to be octal; otherwise it is assumed to be decimal. If the conversion fails the function returns 0. This function ignores leading and trailing whitespace.


toInt

public final int toInt(java.lang.String s)
Returns the int represented by the localized string s, using base 10.


toLong

public final long toLong(java.lang.String s,
                         int base)
Returns the long represented by the localized string s, using base base. If base is 0 the base is determined automatically using the following rules: If the string begins with "0x", it is assumed to be hexadecimal; if it begins with "0", it is assumed to be octal; otherwise it is assumed to be decimal. If the conversion fails the function returns 0. This function ignores leading and trailing whitespace.


toLong

public final long toLong(java.lang.String s)
Returns the long represented by the localized string s, using base 10.


toShort

public final short toShort(java.lang.String s,
                           int base)
Returns the short represented by the localized string s, using base base. If base is 0 the base is determined automatically using the following rules: If the string begins with "0x", it is assumed to be hexadecimal; if it begins with "0", it is assumed to be octal; otherwise it is assumed to be decimal. If the conversion fails the function returns 0. This function ignores leading and trailing whitespace.


toShort

public final short toShort(java.lang.String s)
Returns the short represented by the localized string s. The string is interpreted as a decimal number.


toChar

public final char toChar(java.lang.String s,
                         int base)
Returns the char, which must be written as a number between 0 and 255, represented by the localized string s, using base base. If base is 0 the base is determined automatically using the following rules: If the string begins with "0x", it is assumed to be hexadecimal; if it begins with "0", it is assumed to be octal; otherwise it is assumed to be decimal. If the conversion fails the function returns 0. This function ignores leading and trailing whitespace.


toChar

public final char toChar(java.lang.String s)
Returns the char, which must be written as a number between 0 and 255, represented by the localized string s. The number is assumed to be decimal.
