Tizen Native API  6.0

The Format module represents the base module for all formats.

Required Header

#include <utils_i18n.h>

Overview

The Format module specifies the protocol for classes which convert other objects or values,
such as numeric values and dates, and their string representations.
In some cases these representations may be localized or contain localized characters or strings.
Please note, that there is no function for creating an i18n_format_h object as this module uses a mechanism similar to inheritance, known in object-oriented languages. All of the functions that take the i18n_format_h handle as a parameter can actually take the handle to the more specific format object related to the corresponding derived classes. Please also note that at this point the only derived class that is supported by the base-utils i18n module is the ICU's MeasureFormat class, which is why it is possible to use handles of type i18n_measure_format_h in place of the parameters of type i18n_format_h.
