Class Bidi

java.lang.Object
  extended by java.text.Bidi

public final class Bidi
extends Object

Bidi is the class providing the bidirectional algorithm. The algorithm is defined in the Unicode Standard Annex #9, version 13, also described in The Unicode Standard, Version 4.0 . Use a Bidi object to get the information on the position reordering of a bidirectional text, such as Arabic or Hebrew. The natural display ordering of horizontal text in these languages is from right to left, while they order numbers from left to right. If the text contains multiple runs, the information of each run can be obtained from the run index. The level of any particular run indicates the direction of the text as well as the nesting level. Left-to-right runs have even levels while right-to-left runs have odd levels.

Constructor Detail

Bidi

public Bidi(AttributedCharacterIterator paragraph)
Create a Bidi object from the AttributedCharacterIterator of a paragraph text. The RUN_DIRECTION attribute determines the base direction of the bidirectional text. If it's not specified explicitly, the algorithm uses DIRECTION_DEFAULT_LEFT_TO_RIGHT by default. The BIDI_EMBEDDING attribute specifies the level of embedding for each character. Values between -1 and -62 denote overrides at the level's absolute value, values from 1 to 62 indicate embeddings, and the 0 value indicates the level is calculated by the algorithm automatically. For the character with no BIDI_EMBEDDING attribute or with a improper attribute value, such as a null value, the algorithm treats its embedding level as 0. The NUMERIC_SHAPING attribute specifies the instance of NumericShaper used to convert European digits to other decimal digits before performing the bidi algorithm.

Parameters:
paragraph - TODO Make these proper links again (problem with core vs. framework). see TextAttribute.BIDI_EMBEDDING see TextAttribute.NUMERIC_SHAPING see TextAttribute.RUN_DIRECTION

Bidi

public Bidi(char[] text,
            int textStart,
            byte[] embeddings,
            int embStart,
            int paragraphLength,
            int flags)
Create a Bidi object.

Parameters:
text - the char array of the paragraph text.
textStart - the start offset of the text array to perform the algorithm.
embeddings - the embedding level array of the paragraph text, specifying the embedding level information for each character. Values between -1 and -62 denote overrides at the level's absolute value, values from 1 to 62 indicate embeddings, and the 0 value indicates the level is calculated by the algorithm automatically.
embStart - the start offset of the embeddings array to perform the algorithm.
paragraphLength - the length of the text to perform the algorithm. It must be text.length >= textStart + paragraphLength, and embeddings.length >= embStart + paragraphLength.
flags - indicates the base direction of the bidirectional text. It is expected that this will be one of the direction constant values defined in this class. An unknown value is treated as DIRECTION_DEFAULT_LEFT_TO_RIGHT.

DIRECTION_LEFT_TO_RIGHT, DIRECTION_RIGHT_TO_LEFT, DIRECTION_DEFAULT_RIGHT_TO_LEFT, DIRECTION_DEFAULT_LEFT_TO_RIGHT

Bidi

public Bidi(String paragraph,

Parameters:
