Function Documentation

void ulocdata_close ( ULocaleData uld  ) 

Closes a locale data object.

Parameters:
uld The locale data object to close
Stable:
ICU 3.4
void ulocdata_getCLDRVersion ( UVersionInfo  versionArray,
UErrorCode status 
)

Return the current CLDR version used by the library.

Parameters:
versionArray fillin that will recieve the version number
status error code - could be U_MISSING_RESOURCE_ERROR if the version was not found.
Stable:
ICU 4.4
int32_t ulocdata_getDelimiter ( ULocaleData uld,
ULocaleDataDelimiterType  type,
UChar result,
int32_t  resultLength,
UErrorCode status 
)

Returns one of the delimiter strings associated with a locale.

Parameters:
uld Pointer to the locale data object from which the delimiter string is to be retrieved.
type the type of delimiter to be retrieved.
result A pointer to a buffer to receive the result.
resultLength The maximum size of result.
status Pointer to an error code value
Returns:
int32_t The total buffer size needed; if greater than resultLength, the output was truncated.
Stable:
ICU 3.4
USet* ulocdata_getExemplarSet ( ULocaleData uld,
USet fillIn,
uint32_t  options,
ULocaleDataExemplarSetType  extype,
UErrorCode status 
)

Returns the set of exemplar characters for a locale.

Parameters:
uld Pointer to the locale data object from which the exemplar character set is to be retrieved.
fillIn Pointer to a USet object to receive the exemplar character set for the given locale. Previous contents of fillIn are lost. If fillIn is NULL, then a new USet is created and returned. The caller owns the result and must dispose of it by calling uset_close.
options Bitmask for options to apply to the exemplar pattern. Specify zero to retrieve the exemplar set as it is defined in the locale data. Specify USET_CASE_INSENSITIVE to retrieve a case-folded exemplar set. See uset_applyPattern for a complete list of valid options. The USET_IGNORE_SPACE bit is always set, regardless of the value of 'options'.
extype Specifies the type of exemplar set to be retrieved.
status Pointer to an input-output error code value; must not be NULL.
Returns:
USet* Either fillIn, or if fillIn is NULL, a pointer to a newly-allocated USet that the user must close.
Stable:
ICU 3.4
int32_t ulocdata_getLocaleDisplayPattern ( ULocaleData uld,
UChar pattern,
int32_t  patternCapacity,
UErrorCode status 
)

Returns locale display pattern associated with a locale.

Parameters:
uld Pointer to the locale data object from which the exemplar character set is to be retrieved.
pattern locale display pattern for locale.
patternCapacity the size of the buffer to store the locale display pattern with.
status Must be a valid pointer to an error code value, which must not indicate a failure before the function call.
Returns:
the actual buffer size needed for localeDisplayPattern. If it's greater than patternCapacity, the returned pattern will be truncated.
Stable:
ICU 4.4
int32_t ulocdata_getLocaleSeparator ( ULocaleData uld,
UChar separator,
int32_t  separatorCapacity,
UErrorCode status 
)

Returns locale separator associated with a locale.

Parameters:
uld Pointer to the locale data object from which the exemplar character set is to be retrieved.
separator locale separator for locale.
separatorCapacity the size of the buffer to store the locale separator with.
status Must be a valid pointer to an error code value, which must not indicate a failure before the function call.
Returns:
the actual buffer size needed for localeSeparator. If it's greater than separatorCapacity, the returned separator will be truncated.
Stable:
ICU 4.4
UMeasurementSystem ulocdata_getMeasurementSystem ( const char *  localeID,
UErrorCode status 
)

Returns the measurement system used in the locale specified by the localeID.

Please note that this API will change in ICU 3.6 and will use an ulocdata object.

Parameters:
localeID The id of the locale for which the measurement system to be retrieved.
status Must be a valid pointer to an error code value, which must not indicate a failure before the function call.
Returns:
UMeasurementSystem the measurement system used in the locale.
Stable:
ICU 2.8
UBool ulocdata_getNoSubstitute ( ULocaleData uld  ) 

Retrieves the current "no Substitute" value of the locale data object.

If true, then any methods associated with the locale data object will return null when there is no data available for that method, given the locale ID supplied to ulocdata_open().

Parameters:
uld Pointer to the The locale data object to set.
Returns:
UBool Value of the "no substitute" attribute.
Stable:
ICU 3.4
void ulocdata_getPaperSize ( const char *  localeID,
int32_t *  height,
int32_t *  width,
UErrorCode status 
)

Returns the element gives the normal business letter size, and customary units.

The units for the numbers are always in milli-meters. For US since 8.5 and 11 do not yeild an integral value when converted to milli-meters, the values are rounded off. So for A4 size paper the height and width are 297 mm and 210 mm repectively, and for US letter size the height and width are 279 mm and 216 mm respectively. Please note that this API will change in ICU 3.6 and will use an ulocdata object.

Parameters:
localeID The id of the locale for which the paper size information to be retrieved.
height A pointer to int to recieve the height information.
width A pointer to int to recieve the width information.
status Must be a valid pointer to an error code value, which must not indicate a failure before the function call.
Stable:
ICU 2.8
ULocaleData* ulocdata_open ( const char *  localeID,
UErrorCode status 
)

Opens a locale data object for the given locale.

Parameters:
localeID Specifies the locale associated with this locale data object.
status Pointer to error status code.
Stable:
ICU 3.4
void ulocdata_setNoSubstitute ( ULocaleData uld,
UBool  setting 
)

Sets the "no Substitute" attribute of the locale data object.

If true, then any methods associated with the locale data object will return null when there is no data available for that method, given the locale ID supplied to ulocdata_open().

Parameters:
uld The locale data object to set.
setting Value of the "no substitute" attribute.
Stable:
ICU 3.4
