Uses of Interface

Packages that use CharacterIterator
java.awt Contains all of the classes for creating user interfaces and for painting graphics and images. 
java.text Provides classes and interfaces for handling text, dates, numbers, and messages in a manner independent of natural languages. 
javax.swing.text Provides classes and interfaces that deal with editable and noneditable text components. 

Uses of CharacterIterator in java.awt

Methods in java.awt with parameters of type CharacterIterator
 int Font.canDisplayUpTo(CharacterIterator iter, int start, int limit)
          Indicates whether or not this Font can display the text specified by the iter starting at start and ending at limit.
 GlyphVector Font.createGlyphVector(FontRenderContext frc, CharacterIterator ci)
          Creates a GlyphVector by mapping the specified characters to glyphs one-to-one based on the Unicode cmap in this Font.
 LineMetrics Font.getLineMetrics(CharacterIterator ci, int beginIndex, int limit, FontRenderContext frc)
          Returns a LineMetrics object created with the specified arguments.
 LineMetrics FontMetrics.getLineMetrics(CharacterIterator ci, int beginIndex, int limit, Graphics context)
          Returns the LineMetrics object for the specified CharacterIterator in the specified Graphics context.
 Rectangle2D Font.getStringBounds(CharacterIterator ci, int beginIndex, int limit, FontRenderContext frc)
          Returns the logical bounds of the characters indexed in the specified CharacterIterator in the specified FontRenderContext.
 Rectangle2D FontMetrics.getStringBounds(CharacterIterator ci, int beginIndex, int limit, Graphics context)
          Returns the bounds of the characters indexed in the specified CharacterIterator in the specified Graphics context.

Uses of CharacterIterator in java.text

Subinterfaces of CharacterIterator in java.text
 interface AttributedCharacterIterator
          An AttributedCharacterIterator allows iteration through both text and related attribute information.

Classes in java.text that implement CharacterIterator
 class StringCharacterIterator
          StringCharacterIterator implements the CharacterIterater protocol for a String.

Methods in java.text that return CharacterIterator
abstract  CharacterIterator BreakIterator.getText()
          Get the text being scanned

Methods in java.text with parameters of type CharacterIterator
 CollationElementIterator RuleBasedCollator.getCollationElementIterator(CharacterIterator source)
          Return a CollationElementIterator for the given String.
 void CollationElementIterator.setText(CharacterIterator source)
          Set a new string over which to iterate.
abstract  void BreakIterator.setText(CharacterIterator newText)
          Set a new text for scanning.

Uses of CharacterIterator in javax.swing.text
