Field Detail

ESCAPED_VALUE_PROPERTY

public static final 
SimplePropertyDescriptor ESCAPED_VALUE_PROPERTY
The "escapedValue" structural property of this node type.

Since:
3.0
Method Detail

propertyDescriptors

public static 
List propertyDescriptors(int apiLevel)
Returns a list of structural property descriptors for this node type. Clients must not modify the result.

Parameters:
apiLevel - the API level; one of the AST.JLS* constants
Returns:
a list of property descriptors (element type: StructuralPropertyDescriptor)
Since:
3.0

getEscapedValue

public 
String getEscapedValue()
Returns the string value of this literal node. The value is the sequence of characters that would appear in the source program, including enclosing single quotes and embedded escapes.

Returns:
the escaped string value, including enclosing single quotes and embedded escapes

setEscapedValue

public void setEscapedValue(
String value)
Sets the string value of this literal node. The value is the sequence of characters that would appear in the source program, including enclosing single quotes and embedded escapes. For example,
  • 'a' setEscapedValue("\'a\'")
  • '\n' setEscapedValue("\'\\n\'")

Parameters:
value - the string value, including enclosing single quotes and embedded escapes
Throws:
IllegalArgumentException - if the argument is incorrect

charValue

public char charValue()
Returns the value of this literal node.

For example,

 CharacterLiteral s;
 s.setEscapedValue("\'x\'");
 assert s.charValue() == 'x';
 

Returns:
the character value without enclosing quotes and embedded escapes
Throws:
IllegalArgumentException - if the literal value cannot be converted

setCharValue

public void setCharValue(char value)
Sets the value of this character literal node to the given character.

For example,

 CharacterLiteral s;
 s.setCharValue('x');
 assert s.charValue() == 'x';
 assert s.getEscapedValue().equals("\'x\'");
 

Parameters:
value - the character value
