Alphabetic Index

Alphabetic Index supports the creation of a UI index appropriate for a given language.

Required Header

#include <utils_i18n.h>

Overview

The module can generate a list of labels for use as a UI "index", that is, a list of clickable characters (or character sequences) that allow the user to see a segment (bucket) of a larger "target" list. That is, each label corresponds to a bucket in the target list, where everything in the bucket is greater than or equal to the character (according to the locale's collation). Strings can be added to the index; they will be in sorted order in the right bucket. The module also supports having buckets for strings before the first (underflow), after the last (overflow), and between scripts (inflow). For example, if the index is constructed with labels for Russian and English, Greek characters would fall into an inflow bucket between the other two scripts.

See also:
i18n_alpha_idx_get_bucket_label_type()
Enumerator:
I18N_ALPHA_IDX_NORMAL 

Normal Label, typically the starting letter of the names in the bucket with this label.

I18N_ALPHA_IDX_UNDERFLOW 

Underflow Label.

The bucket with this label contains names in scripts that sort before any of the bucket labels in this index.

I18N_ALPHA_IDX_INFLOW 

Inflow Label.

The bucket with this label contains names in scripts that sort between two of the bucket labels in this index. Inflow labels are created when an index contains normal labels for multiple scripts, and skips other scripts that sort between some of the included scripts.

I18N_ALPHA_IDX_OVERFLOW 

Overflow Label.

The bucket with this label contains names in scripts that sort after all of the bucket labels in this index.

Parameters:
[in]indexLabel will be added to this alphabetic index
[in]languageThe language of the locale
[in]countryThe country of the locale
Returns:
0 on success, otherwise a negative error value
Return values:
I18N_ERROR_NONESuccessful
I18N_ERROR_INVALID_PARAMETERInvalid function parameter
int i18n_alpha_idx_add_labels_with_locale_id ( i18n_alpha_idx_h  index,
const char *  locale_id 
)

Adds the index characters from a specified locale to the index.

The labels are added to those that are already in the index; they do not replace the existing index characters. The collation order for this index is not changed; it remains that of the locale that was originally specified when creating this Index.

Since :
2.3.2 and 3.0
Parameters:
[in]indexRecord will be added to this alphabetic index
[in]nameThe display name for the record. The Record will be placed in a bucket based on this name.
