              java.util.Map<java.lang.Long,java.util.Date> translations)
Constructor

Parameters:
multiLanguage - multilanguage value?
translations - HashMap containing language->translation mapping

FxDate

public FxDate(java.util.Map<java.lang.Long,java.util.Date> translations)
Constructor

Parameters:
translations - HashMap containing language->translation mapping

FxDate

public FxDate(java.util.Map<java.lang.Long,java.util.Date[]> translations,
              int pos)
Constructor - create value from an array of translations

Constructor

Parameters:
clone - original FxValue to be cloned
Method Detail

isImmutableValueType

public boolean isImmutableValueType()
Return true if T is immutable (e.g. java.lang.String). This prevents cloning of the translations in copy constructors.

Overrides:
isImmutableValueType in class FxValue<java.util.Date,FxDate>
Returns:
true if T is immutable (e.g. java.lang.String)

fromString

public java.util.Date fromString(java.lang.String value)
Evaluates the given string value to an object of type T.

Specified by:
fromString in class FxValue<java.util.Date,FxDate>
Parameters:
value - string value to be evaluated
Returns:
the value interpreted as T

getStringValue

public java.lang.String getStringValue(java.util.Date value)
Converts the given instance of T to a string that can be parsed again by FxValue.fromString(String).

Overrides:
getStringValue in class FxValue<java.util.Date,FxDate>
Parameters:
value - the value to be converted
Returns:
a string representation of the given value that can be parsed again using FxValue.fromString(String).

copy

public FxDate copy()
Creates a copy of the given object (useful if the actual type is unknown).

Specified by:
copy in class FxValue<java.util.Date,FxDate>
Returns:
a copy of the given object (useful if the actual type is unknown).

getValueClass

public java.lang.Class<java.util.Date> getValueClass()
Return the class instance of the value type.

Specified by:
getValueClass in class FxValue<java.util.Date,FxDate>
Returns:
the class instance of the value type.

getEmptyValue

public java.util.Date getEmptyValue()
Returns an empty value object for this FxValue type.

Specified by:
getEmptyValue in class FxValue<java.util.Date,FxDate>
Returns:
an empty value object for this FxValue type.
