Class CharacterEditor

  • java.lang.Object
    • java.beans.PropertyEditorSupport
      • org.springframework.beans.propertyeditors.CharacterEditor
  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    java.beans.PropertyEditor


    public class CharacterEditor
    extends java.beans.PropertyEditorSupport
    Editor for a Character, to populate a property of type Character or char from a String value.

    Note that the JDK does not contain a default property editor for char! BeanWrapperImpl will register this editor by default.

    Also supports conversion from a Unicode character sequence; e.g. u0041 ('A').

      • CharacterEditor

        public CharacterEditor(boolean allowEmpty)

        The "allowEmpty" parameter controls whether an empty String is to be allowed in parsing, i.e. be interpreted as the null value when text is being converted. If false, an IllegalArgumentException will be thrown at that time.

        Parameters:
        allowEmpty - if empty strings are to be allowed
