Class NumberFormat

All Implemented Interfaces:
ByteData, DisplayFormat, Format

public class NumberFormat
extends NumberFormatRecord
implements DisplayFormat

A custom user defined number format, which may be instantiated within user applications in order to present numerical values to the appropriate level of accuracy. The string format used to create a number format adheres to the standard java specification, and JExcelAPI makes the necessary modifications so that it is rendered in Excel as the nearest possible equivalent. Once created, this may be used within a CellFormat object, which in turn is a parameter passed to the constructor of the Number cell
