ParsePosition getIndex() method in Java with Example

  • Last Updated : 22 Jan, 2020

The getIndex() method of java.text.ParsePosition class is used to retrieve the current parse position of this ParsePositon object .

Syntax:

public int getIndex()

Parameter: This method does not accepts any argument as parameter.

Return Value: This method returns the current parse position of this parse position object.

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



Example 1:




// Java program to demonstrate
// getIndex() method
  
import java.text.*;
import java.util.*;
import java.io.*;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] argv)
    {
        try {
  
            // Creating and initializing
            // new ParsePosition Object
            ParsePosition pos
                = new ParsePosition(1);
  
            // set index for the parsing error
            pos.setErrorIndex(3);
  
            // getting the current
            // ParsePosition of
            // using getIndex() method
            int i = pos.getIndex();
  
            // display result
            System.out.println(
                "current parse position: "
                + Integer.toString(i));
        }
  
        catch (ClassCastException e) {
  
            System.out.println(e);
        }
    }
}
Output:
current parse position: 1

Example 2:




// Java program to demonstrate
// getIndex() method
  
import java.text.*;
import java.util.*;
import java.io.*;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] argv)
    {
        try {
  
            // Creating and initializing
            // new ParsePosition Object
            ParsePosition pos
                = new ParsePosition(1);
  
            // set index for current
            // Parse Position
            pos.setIndex(3);
  
            // getting the current
            // ParsePosition of
            // using getIndex() method
            int i = pos.getIndex();
  
            // display result
            System.out.println(
                "current parse position: "
                + Integer.toString(i));
        }
  
        catch (ClassCastException e) {
  
            System.out.println(e);
        }
    }
}
Output:
current parse position: 3
