  • Last Updated : 27 Nov, 2019

The setText(CharacterIterator) method of java.text.BreakIterator class is used to set the new text into the BreakIterator using CharacterIterator object.

Syntax:

public abstract void setText(CharacterIterator newText)

Paramter: This method takes CharacterIterator object as parameter which contains the new text to be set.

Return Value: This method returns nothing.

Below are the examples to illustrate the setText() method:



Example 1:




// Java program to demonstrate setText() method
  
import java.text.*;
import java.util.*;
import java.io.*;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] argv)
    {
        // creating and initializing CharacterIterator object
        CharacterIterator word
            = new StringCharacterIterator("GeeksForGEEks");
  
        // creating and initializing BreakIterator
        BreakIterator wb
            = BreakIterator.getWordInstance();
  
        // setting text for BreakIterator
        // using setText() method
        wb.setText(word);
  
        // getting the text being scanned by
        // using getText() method
        StringCharacterIterator text
            = (StringCharacterIterator)wb.getText();
  
        // display the result
        System.out.print("Retrived text is : "
                         + text.first());
        for (int i = text.getBeginIndex() - 1;
             i < text.getEndIndex() - 2;
             i++)
            System.out.print(text.next());
    }
}


Output:

Retrived text is : GeeksForGEEks

Example 2:




// Java program to demonstrate setText() method
  
import java.text.*;
import java.util.*;
import java.io.*;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] argv)
    {
        // creating and initializing CharacterIterator object
        CharacterIterator word
            = new StringCharacterIterator("TextView");
  
        // creating and initializing BreakIterator
        BreakIterator wb
            = BreakIterator.getWordInstance();
  
        // setting text for BreakIterator
        // using setText() method
        wb.setText(word);
  
        // getting the text being scanned by
        // using getText() method
        StringCharacterIterator text
            = (StringCharacterIterator)wb.getText();
  
        // display the result
        System.out.print("Retrived text is : "
                         + text.first());
        for (int i = text.getBeginIndex() - 1;
             i < text.getEndIndex() - 2;
             i++)
            System.out.print(text.next());
    }
}


Output:

Retrived text is : TextView
