Detailed Description

This class provides flexible generation of date format patterns, like "yy-MM-dd".

The user can build up the generator by adding successive patterns. Once that is done, a query can be made using a "skeleton", which is a pattern which just includes the desired fields and lengths. The generator will return the "best fit" pattern corresponding to that skeleton.

The main method people will use is getBestPattern(String skeleton), since normally this class is pre-built with data from a particular locale. However, generators can be built directly from other data as well.

Issue: may be useful to also have a function that returns the list of fields in a pattern, in order, since we have that internally. That would be useful for getting the UI order of field elements.

Member Function Documentation

◆ addPattern()

UDateTimePatternConflict icu::DateTimePatternGenerator::addPattern ( const UnicodeString pattern,
UBool  override,
UnicodeString conflictingPattern,
UErrorCode status 
)

Adds a pattern to the generator.

If the pattern has the same skeleton as an existing pattern, and the override parameter is set, then the previous value is overriden. Otherwise, the previous value is retained. In either case, the conflicting status is set and previous vale is stored in conflicting pattern.

Note that single-field patterns (like "MMM") are automatically added, and don't need to be added explicitly!

Parameters
patternInput pattern, such as "dd/MMM"
overrideWhen existing values are to be overridden use true, otherwise use false.
conflictingPatternPrevious pattern with the same skeleton.
statusOutput param set to success/failure code on exit, which must not indicate a failure before the function call.
Returns
conflicting status. The value could be UDATPG_NO_CONFLICT, UDATPG_BASE_CONFLICT or UDATPG_CONFLICT.
Stable:

Sample code

#include <iostream>
#include "unicode/ustdio.h"
UnicodeString conflictingPattern,dateReturned, pattern;
Locale locale=Locale::getFrance();
Calendar *cal = Calendar::createInstance(status);
cal->set (1999,9,13,23,58,59);
UDate date = cal->getTime(status);
// Create an DateTimePatternGenerator instance for the given locale
DateTimePatternGenerator *dtfg= DateTimePatternGenerator::createInstance(locale,status);
SimpleDateFormat *sdf = new SimpleDateFormat(dtfg->getBestPattern("MMMMddHmm",status),locale,status);
// Add '. von' to the existing pattern
dtfg->addPattern("dd'. von' MMMM", true, conflictingPattern,status);
// Apply the new pattern
sdf->applyPattern(dtfg->getBestPattern("MMMMddHmm",status));
dateReturned = sdf->format(date, dateReturned, status);
pattern =sdf->toPattern(pattern);
u_printf("%s\n", "New Pattern for FRENCH: ");
u_printf("%S\n", pattern.getTerminatedBuffer());

◆ getBaseSkeleton()

UnicodeString icu::DateTimePatternGenerator::getBaseSkeleton ( const UnicodeString pattern,
UErrorCode status 
)

Utility to return a unique base skeleton from a given pattern.

This is the same as the skeleton, except that differences in length are minimized so as to only preserve the difference between string and numeric form. So for example, both "MMM-dd" and "d/MMM" produce the skeleton "MMMd" (notice the single d). getBaseSkeleton() works exactly like staticGetBaseSkeleton(). Use staticGetBaseSkeleton() instead of getBaseSkeleton().

Parameters

Returns
base skeleton, such as "MMMd"

◆ replaceFieldTypes() [2/2]

UnicodeString icu::DateTimePatternGenerator::replaceFieldTypes ( const UnicodeString pattern,
const UnicodeString skeleton,
UDateTimePatternMatchOptions  options,
UErrorCode status

Parameters
patternInput pattern
skeletonThe skeleton is a pattern containing only the variable fields. For example, "MMMdd" and "mmhh" are skeletons.
optionsOptions controlling whether the length of specified fields in the pattern are adjusted to match those in the skeleton (when this would not happen otherwise). For default behavior, use UDATPG_MATCH_NO_OPTIONS.
statusOutput param set to success/failure code on exit, which must not indicate a failure before the function call.

pattern adjusted to match the skeleton fields widths and subtypes.
Stable:

◆ setAppendItemFormat()

void icu::DateTimePatternGenerator::setAppendItemFormat ( UDateTimePatternField  field,
const UnicodeString value 
)

An AppendItem format is a pattern used to append a field if there is no good match.

For example, suppose that the input skeleton is "GyyyyMMMd", and there is no matching pattern internally, but there is a pattern matching "yyyyMMMd", say "d-MM-yyyy". Then that pattern is used, plus the G. The way these two are conjoined is by using the AppendItemFormat for G (era). So if that value is, say "{0}, {1}" then the final resulting pattern is "d-MM-yyyy, G".

There are actually three available variables: {0} is the pattern so far, {1} is the element we are adding, and {2} is the name of the element.

This reflects the way that the CLDR data is organized.

Parameters
fieldsuch as UDATPG_ERA_FIELD.
valuepattern, such as "{0}, {1}"
Stable:
ICU 3.8

◆ setAppendItemName()

void icu::DateTimePatternGenerator::setAppendItemName ( UDateTimePatternField  field,
const UnicodeString value 
)

Sets the names of field, eg "era" in English for ERA.

These are only used if the corresponding AppendItemFormat is used, and if it contains a {2} variable.

This reflects the way that the CLDR data is organized.

Parameters
fieldsuch as UDATPG_ERA_FIELD.
valuename of the field
Stable:
ICU 3.8

◆ setDateTimeFormat()

void icu::DateTimePatternGenerator::setDateTimeFormat ( const UnicodeString dateTimeFormat)

The DateTimeFormat is a message format pattern used to compose date and time patterns.

The default pattern in the root locale is "{1} {0}", where {1} will be replaced by the date pattern and {0} will be replaced by the time pattern; however, other locales may specify patterns such as "{1}, {0}" or "{1} 'at' {0}", etc.

This is used when the input skeleton contains both date and time fields, but there is not a close match among the added patterns. For example, suppose that this object was created by adding "dd-MMM" and "hh:mm", and its datetimeFormat is the default "{1} {0}". Then if the input skeleton is "MMMdhmm", there is not an exact match, so the input skeleton is broken up into two components "MMMd" and "hmm". There are close matches for those two skeletons, so the result is put together with this pattern, resulting in "d-MMM h:mm".

Parameters
dateTimeFormatmessage format pattern, here {1} will be replaced by the date pattern and {0} will be replaced by the time pattern.
Stable:
ICU 3.8

◆ setDecimal()

void icu::DateTimePatternGenerator::setDecimal ( const UnicodeString decimal)

The decimal value is used in formatting fractions of seconds.

If the skeleton contains fractional seconds, then this is used with the fractional seconds. For example, suppose that the input pattern is "hhmmssSSSS", and the best matching pattern internally is "H:mm:ss", and the decimal string is ",". Then the resulting pattern is modified to be "H:mm:ss,SSSS"

Parameters
decimal
Stable:
ICU 3.8

◆ staticGetBaseSkeleton()

static UnicodeString icu::DateTimePatternGenerator::staticGetBaseSkeleton ( const UnicodeString pattern,
UErrorCode status 
)
static

Utility to return a unique base skeleton from a given pattern.

This is the same as the skeleton, except that differences in length are minimized so as to only preserve the difference between string and numeric form. So for example, both "MMM-dd" and "d/MMM" produce the skeleton "MMMd" (notice the single d).

Parameters
patternInput pattern, such as "dd/MMM"
statusOutput param set to success/failure code on exit, which must not indicate a failure before the function call.
Returns
base skeleton, such as "MMMd"
Stable:
ICU 56

◆ staticGetSkeleton()

static UnicodeString icu::DateTimePatternGenerator::staticGetSkeleton ( const UnicodeString pattern,
UErrorCode status 
)
static

Utility to return a unique skeleton from a given pattern.

For example, both "MMM-dd" and "dd/MMM" produce the skeleton "MMMdd".

Parameters
patternInput pattern, such as "dd/MMM"
statusOutput param set to success/failure code on exit, which must not indicate a failure before the function call.
Returns
skeleton such as "MMMdd"
