Struct std::fmt::Formatter [] [src]

pub struct Formatter<'a> {
    // some fields omitted
}

A struct to represent both where to emit formatting strings to and how they should be formatted. A mutable version of this is passed to all formatting traits.

Methods

impl<'a> Formatter<'a>

fn pad_integral(&mut self, is_positive: bool, prefix: &str, buf: &str) -> Result<(), Error>

Performs the correct padding for an integer which has already been emitted into a str. The str should not contain the sign for the integer, that will be added by this method.

Arguments

  • is_positive - whether the original integer was positive or not.
  • prefix - if the '#' character (Alternate) is provided, this is the prefix to put in front of the number.
  • buf - the byte array that the number has been formatted into

This function will correctly account for the flags provided as well as the minimum width. It will not take precision into account.

fn pad(&mut self, s: &str) -> Result<(), Error>

This function takes a string slice and emits it to the internal buffer after applying the relevant formatting flags specified. The flags recognized for generic strings are:

  • width - the minimum width of what to emit
  • fill/align - what to emit and where to emit it if the string provided needs to be padded
  • precision - the maximum length to emit, the string is truncated if it is longer than this length

Notably this function ignored the flag parameters

fn write_str(&mut self, data: &str) -> Result<(), Error>

Writes some data to the underlying buffer contained within this formatter.

fn write_fmt(&mut self, fmt: Arguments) -> Result<(), Error>

Writes some formatted information into this instance

fn flags(&self) -> u32

Flags for formatting (packed version of rt::Flag)

fn fill(&self) -> char

Unstable

: method was just created

Character used as 'fill' whenever there is alignment

fn align(&self) -> Alignment

Unstable

: method was just created

Flag indicating what form of alignment was requested

fn width(&self) -> Option<usize>

Unstable

: method was just created

Optionally specified integer width that the output should be

fn precision(&self) -> Option<usize>

Unstable

: method was just created

Optionally specified precision for numeric types

fn debug_struct(&'b mut self, name: &str) -> DebugStruct<'b, 'a>

Creates a DebugStruct builder designed to assist with creation of fmt::Debug implementations for structs.

Examples

fn main() { use std::fmt; struct Foo { bar: i32, baz: String, } impl fmt::Debug for Foo { fn fmt(&self, fmt: &mut fmt::Formatter) -> fmt::Result { fmt.debug_struct("Foo") .field("bar", &self.bar) .field("baz", &self.baz) .finish() } } // prints "Foo { bar: 10, baz: "Hello World" }" println!("{:?}", Foo { bar: 10, baz: "Hello World".to_string() }); }
use std::fmt;

struct Foo {
    bar: i32,
    baz: String,
}

impl fmt::Debug for Foo {
    fn fmt(&self, fmt: &mut fmt::Formatter) -> fmt::Result {
        fmt.debug_struct("Foo")
            .field("bar", &self.bar)
            .field("baz", &self.baz)
            .finish()
    }
}

// prints "Foo { bar: 10, baz: "Hello World" }"
println!("{:?}", Foo { bar: 10, baz: "Hello World".to_string() });

fn debug_tuple(&'b mut self, name: &str) -> DebugTuple<'b, 'a>

Creates a DebugTuple builder designed to assist with creation of fmt::Debug implementations for tuple structs.

Examples

fn main() { use std::fmt; struct Foo(i32, String); impl fmt::Debug for Foo { fn fmt(&self, fmt: &mut fmt::Formatter) -> fmt::Result { fmt.debug_tuple("Foo") .field(&self.0) .field(&self.1) .finish() } } // prints "Foo(10, "Hello World")" println!("{:?}", Foo(10, "Hello World".to_string())); }
use std::fmt;

struct Foo(i32, String);

impl fmt::Debug for Foo {
    fn fmt(&self, fmt: &mut fmt::Formatter) -> fmt::Result {
        fmt.debug_tuple("Foo")
            .field(&self.0)
            .field(&self.1)
            .finish()
    }
}

// prints "Foo(10, "Hello World")"
println!("{:?}", Foo(10, "Hello World".to_string()));

fn debug_list(&'b mut self) -> DebugList<'b, 'a>

Creates a DebugList builder designed to assist with creation of fmt::Debug implementations for list-like structures.

Examples

fn main() { use std::fmt; struct Foo(Vec<i32>); impl fmt::Debug for Foo { fn fmt(&self, fmt: &mut fmt::Formatter) -> fmt::Result { fmt.debug_list().entries(self.0.iter()).finish() } } // prints "[10, 11]" println!("{:?}", Foo(vec![10, 11])); }
use std::fmt;

struct Foo(Vec<i32>);

impl fmt::Debug for Foo {
    fn fmt(&self, fmt: &mut fmt::Formatter) -> fmt::Result {
        fmt.debug_list().entries(self.0.iter()).finish()
    }
}

// prints "[10, 11]"
println!("{:?}", Foo(vec![10, 11]));

fn debug_set(&'b mut self) -> DebugSet<'b, 'a>

Creates a DebugSet builder designed to assist with creation of fmt::Debug implementations for set-like structures.

Examples

fn main() { use std::fmt; struct Foo(Vec<i32>); impl fmt::Debug for Foo { fn fmt(&self, fmt: &mut fmt::Formatter) -> fmt::Result { fmt.debug_set().entries(self.0.iter()).finish() } } // prints "{10, 11}" println!("{:?}", Foo(vec![10, 11])); }
use std::fmt;

struct Foo(Vec<i32>);

impl fmt::Debug for Foo {
    fn fmt(&self, fmt: &mut fmt::Formatter) -> fmt::Result {
        fmt.debug_set().entries(self.0.iter()).finish()
    }
}

// prints "{10, 11}"
println!("{:?}", Foo(vec![10, 11]));

fn debug_map(&'b mut self) -> DebugMap<'b, 'a>

Creates a DebugMap builder designed to assist with creation of fmt::Debug implementations for map-like structures.

Examples

fn main() { use std::fmt; struct Foo(Vec<(String, i32)>); impl fmt::Debug for Foo { fn fmt(&self, fmt: &mut fmt::Formatter) -> fmt::Result { fmt.debug_map().entries(self.0.iter().map(|&(ref k, ref v)| (k, v))).finish() } } // prints "{"A": 10, "B": 11}" println!("{:?}", Foo(vec![("A".to_string(), 10), ("B".to_string(), 11)])); }
use std::fmt;

struct Foo(Vec<(String, i32)>);

impl fmt::Debug for Foo {
    fn fmt(&self, fmt: &mut fmt::Formatter) -> fmt::Result {
        fmt.debug_map().entries(self.0.iter().map(|&(ref k, ref v)| (k, v))).finish()
    }
}

// prints "{"A": 10, "B": 11}"
println!("{:?}", Foo(vec![("A".to_string(), 10), ("B".to_string(), 11)]));
