Geek Week

The toPattern() method of java.text.MessageFormat class is used to get string representation of the current pattern of this message format object.
Syntax: 
 

public String toPattern()

Parameter: This method does not take any argument as a parameter.
Return Value: This method returns string representation of the current pattern of this message format object.
Below are the examples to illustrate the toPattern() method:
Example 1: 
 

Java




// Java program to demonstrate
// toPattern() method
 
import java.text.*;
import java.util.*;
import java.io.*;
 
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] argv)
    {
        // creating and initializing  MessageFormat
        MessageFormat mf
            = new MessageFormat("{0, number, #}, {2, date, #.#}, {4, time}");
 
        // getting the pattern
        // of this MessageFormat Object
        // using toPattern() method
        String patt = mf.toPattern();
 
        // display the result
        System.out.println("current pattern of MessageFormat Object : " + patt);
    }
}
Output: 
current pattern of MessageFormat Object : {0, number, #}, {2, date, #.#}, {4, time}

 

Example 2: 
 

Java




// Java program to demonstrate
// toPattern() method
 
import java.text.*;
import java.util.*;
import java.io.*;
 
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] argv)
    {
        // creating and initializing  MessageFormat
        MessageFormat mf
            = new MessageFormat("{0, number, #}, {4, time}");
 
        // getting the pattern
        // of this MessageFormat Object
        // using toPattern() method
        String patt = mf.toPattern();
 
        // display the result
        System.out.println("current pattern of MessageFormat Object : " + patt);
    }
}
Output: 
current pattern of MessageFormat Object : {0, number, #}, {4, time}
