FileInterface.FormatFlags Property

Top 

Description

The format flags affect the way data is read and is written for certain data types. To set a format flag, set the value at the corresponding array index to 1. To unset a format flag, set the value at the corresponding array index to 0. The format flags indicies are as follows:

index = 0 name = boolalpha definition: read/write boolean values as names (i.e. true/false).

index = 1 name = dec definition: read/write integer values in decimal base format.

index = 2 name = fixed definition: write floating point values in fixed-point notation.

index = 3 name = hex definition: read/write integer values in hexadecimal base format.

index = 4 name = internal definition: the output is padded with spaces at an internal point enlarging the output up to the field width.

index = 5 name = left definition: the output is padded at the end enlarging the output up to the field width.

index = 6 name = oct definition: read/write integer values in octal base format.

index = 7 name = right definition: the output is padded at the beginning enlarging the output up to the field width.

index = 8 name = scientific definition: write floating-point values in scientific notation.

index = 9 name = showbase definition: write integer values preceded by the numeric base.

index = 10 name = showpoint definition: write floating-point values including always the decimal point.

index = 11 name = showpos definition: write non-negative values preceded by a plus sign (+).

index = 12 name = shipws definition: skip leading whitespaces on certain input operations.

index = 13 name = unitbuf definition: flush output after each inserting operation.

index = 14 name = uppercase definition: write uppercase letters replacing certain lowercase letters.
