Trait std::fmt::Display1.0.0 [] [src]

pub trait Display {
    fn fmt(&self, f: &mut Formatter) -> Result<(), Error>;
}

Format trait for an empty format, {}.

Display is similar to Debug, but Display is for user-facing output, and so cannot be derived.

For more information on formatters, see the module-level documentation.

Examples

Implementing Display on a type:

use std::fmt;

struct Point {
    x: i32,
    y: i32,
}

impl fmt::Display for Point {
    fn fmt(&self, f: &mut fmt::Formatter) -> fmt::Result {
        write!(f, "({}, {})", self.x, self.y)
    }
}

let origin = Point { x: 0, y: 0 };

println!("The origin is: {}", origin);Run

Required Methods

Formats the value using the given formatter.

Examples

use std::fmt;

struct Position {
    longitude: f32,
    latitude: f32,
}

impl fmt::Display for Position {
    fn fmt(&self, f: &mut fmt::Formatter) -> fmt::Result {
        write!(f, "({}, {})", self.longitude, self.latitude)
    }
}

assert_eq!("(1.987, 2.983)".to_owned(),
           format!("{}", Position { longitude: 1.987, latitude: 2.983, }));Run
