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



Example 1:




// Java program to demonstrate
// getFieldAttribute() method
  
import java.text.*;
import java.util.*;
import java.io.*;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] argv)
    {
        try {
  
            // Creating and initializing
            // new FieldPosition Object
            FieldPosition pos
                = new FieldPosition(
                    MessageFormat.Field.ARGUMENT);
  
            // getting Field attribute
            // of FieldPosition object
            // using getField() mehtod
            Format.Field i = pos.getFieldAttribute();
  
            // display result
            System.out.println("field identifier. :- " + i);
        }
  
        catch (ClassCastException e) {
  
            System.out.println("Exception thrown : " + e);
        }
    }
}
Output:
field identifier. :- java.text.MessageFormat$Field(message argument field)

Example 2:




// Java program to demonstrate
// getFieldAttribute() method
  
import java.text.*;
import java.util.*;
import java.io.*;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] argv)
    {
        try {
  
            // Creating and initializing
            // new FieldPosition Object
            FieldPosition pos
                = new FieldPosition(
                    DateFormat.Field.AM_PM);
  
            // getting Field attribute
            // of FieldPosition object
            // using getField() mehtod
            Format.Field i = pos.getFieldAttribute();
  
            // display result
            System.out.println("field identifier. :- " + i);
        }
