public class: ParsePosition [javadoc | source]
ParsePosition is a simple class used by Format and its subclasses to keep track of the current position during parsing. The parseObject method in the various Format classes requires a ParsePosition object as an argument.

By design, as you parse through a string with different formats, you can use the same ParsePosition, since the index parameter records the current position.

Field Summary
 int index    Input: the place you start parsing.
Output: position where the parse stopped. This is designed to be used serially, with each call setting index up for the next one. 
 int errorIndex     
 public ParsePosition(int index) 
Method from java.text.ParsePosition Summary:
equals,   getErrorIndex,   getIndex,   hashCode,   setErrorIndex,   setIndex,   toString
Methods from java.lang.Object:
clone,   equals,   finalize,   getClass,   hashCode,   notify,   notifyAll,   toString,   wait,   wait,   wait
Method from java.text.ParsePosition Detail:
 public boolean equals(Object obj) 
    Overrides equals
 public int getErrorIndex() 
    Retrieve the index at which an error occurred, or -1 if the error index has not been set.
 public int getIndex() 
    Retrieve the current parse position. On input to a parse method, this is the index of the character at which parsing will begin; on output, it is the index of the character following the last character parsed.
 public int hashCode() 
    Returns a hash code for this ParsePosition.
 public  void setErrorIndex(int ei) 
    Set the index at which a parse error occurred. Formatters should set this before returning an error code from their parseObject method. The default value is -1 if this is not set.
 public  void setIndex(int index) 
    Set the current parse position.
 public String toString() 
    Return a string representation of this ParsePosition.
