InputType

public interface InputType

Bit definitions for an integer defining the basic content type of text held in an Editable object. Supported classes may be combined with variations and flags to indicate desired behaviors.

Examples

A password field with with the password visible to the user:
inputType = TYPE_CLASS_TEXT | TYPE_TEXT_VARIATION_VISIBLE_PASSWORD
A multi-line postal address with automatic capitalization:
inputType = TYPE_CLASS_TEXT | TYPE_TEXT_VARIATION_POSTAL_ADDRESS | TYPE_TEXT_FLAG_MULTI_LINE
A time field:
inputType = TYPE_CLASS_DATETIME | TYPE_DATETIME_VARIATION_TIME

Constant Summary

int TYPE_CLASS_DATETIME Class for dates and times.

int TYPE_CLASS_PHONE Class for a phone number.
int TYPE_CLASS_TEXT Class for normal text.
int TYPE_DATETIME_VARIATION_DATE Default variation of TYPE_CLASS_DATETIME: allows entering only a date.
int TYPE_DATETIME_VARIATION_NORMAL Default variation of TYPE_CLASS_DATETIME: allows entering both a date and time.
int TYPE_DATETIME_VARIATION_TIME Default variation of TYPE_CLASS_DATETIME: allows entering only a time.
int TYPE_MASK_CLASS Mask of bits that determine the overall class of text being given.
int TYPE_MASK_FLAGS Mask of bits that provide addition bit flags of options.
int TYPE_MASK_VARIATION Mask of bits that determine the variation of the base content class.
int TYPE_NULL Special content type for when no explicit type has been specified.
int TYPE_NUMBER_FLAG_DECIMAL Flag of TYPE_CLASS_NUMBER: the number is decimal, allowing a decimal point to provide fractional values.
int TYPE_NUMBER_FLAG_SIGNED Flag of TYPE_CLASS_NUMBER: the number is signed, allowing a positive or negative sign at the start.
