Class AbstractTextual

  • All Implemented Interfaces:, java.lang.Cloneable, org.w3c.dom.CharacterData, org.w3c.dom.Node, Item, Textual
    Direct Known Subclasses:
    Binary, CData, Comment, Text

    public abstract class AbstractTextual
    extends AbstractItem
    implements Textual, org.w3c.dom.CharacterData
    Represents a textual item.

    Note: any deriving class's getText shall not return null.

    Element.getText uses this class's isPartOfParentText to know whether a child's text shall be concatenated.

      • isPartOfParentText

        public boolean isPartOfParentText()
        Returns true if this text object is part of the parent's text. Default: true.
        Specified by:
        isPartOfParentText in interface Textual
      • isCoalesceable

        public boolean isCoalesceable()
        Returns true if this textual object is allowed to be coalesced with its siblings with the same type (class). It is used by Group.coalesce.

        Default: false. Right now only Text override it to true.

        Specified by:
        isCoalesceable in interface Textual
      • split

        public Textual split​(int offset)
        Description copied from interface: Textual
        Splits at the specified offset into two Textual objects. The new textual object is inserted right after this one.
        Specified by:
        split in interface Textual
        the new textual object; null if offset is no less than length
      • checkText

        protected void checkText​(java.lang.String text)
        Checks whether the text is valid. It is usually overridden by the deriving classes to check more specifically.
      • getText

        public java.lang.String getText()
        Description copied from interface: Item
        Gets the text of this item, or null if it is neither Textual nor Element. For Element, the text is the concatenation of all its textual children, including Text, CDATA, and Binary.

        Besides String-type value, some item, e.g., Binary, allows any type of objects. Caller could test whether a item implements the Binable interface, and use Binable.getValue instead. For binable vertices, getText is actually getValue().toString().

        The returned value is neither trimmed nor normalized.
