Class BaseCodingDt

    • Method Detail

      • getCodeElement

        public abstract CodeDt getCodeElement()
        Gets the value(s) for code (Symbol in syntax defined by the system). creating it if it does not exist. Will not return null.

        Definition: A symbol in syntax defined by the system. The symbol may be a predefined code or an expression in a syntax defined by the coding system (e.g. post-coordination)

      • getSystemElement

        public abstract UriDt getSystemElement()
        Gets the value(s) for system (Identity of the terminology system). creating it if it does not exist. Will not return null.

        Definition: The identification of the code system that defines the meaning of the symbol in the code.

      • getDisplayElement

        public abstract StringDt getDisplayElement()
        Gets the value(s) for display (Representation defined by the system). creating it if it does not exist. Will not return null.

        Definition: A representation of the meaning of the code in the system, following the rules of the system.

      • getValueAsQueryToken

        public String getValueAsQueryToken​(FhirContext theContext)
        Returns a representation of this parameter's value as it will be represented "over the wire". In other words, how it will be presented in a URL (although not URL escaped)

        See FHIR specification 2.2.2 Search SearchParameter Types for information on the token format

        Specified by:
        getValueAsQueryToken in interface IQueryParameterType
        Parameters:
        theContext - TODO
        Returns:
        Returns a representation of this parameter's value as it will be represented "over the wire". In other words, how it will be presented in a URL (although not URL escaped)
      • setValueAsQueryToken

        public void setValueAsQueryToken​(FhirContext theContext,
                                         String theParamName,
                                         String theQualifier,
                                         String theParameter)
        This method is generally only called by HAPI itself, and should not need to be called from user code.

        See FHIR specification 2.2.2 Search SearchParameter Types for information on the token format

        Specified by:
        setValueAsQueryToken in interface IQueryParameterType
        Parameters:
        theContext - TODO
        theParamName - TODO
        theQualifier - The parameter name qualifier that accompanied this value. For example, if the complete query was http://foo?name:exact=John, qualifier would be ":exact"
        theParameter - The actual parameter value. For example, if the complete query was http://foo?name:exact=John, the value would be "John"
      • matchesSystemAndCode

        public boolean matchesSystemAndCode​(BaseCodingDt theCoding)
        Returns true if this Coding has the same Code and system (as compared by simple equals comparison). Does not compare other Codes (e.g. getUseElement()) or any extensions.
      • matchesToken

        public boolean matchesToken​(BaseCodingDt theSearchParam)
        returns true if this Coding matches a search for the coding specified by theSearchParam, according to the following:
        • [parameter]=[namespace]|[code] matches a code/value in the given system namespace
        • [parameter]=[code] matches a code/value irrespective of it's system namespace
        • [parameter]=|[code] matches a code/value that has no system namespace
        Parameters:
        theSearchParam - - coding to test this against
        Returns:
        true if the coding matches, false otherwise
      • setCode

        public abstract BaseCodingDt setCode​(String theCode)
        Sets the value for code (Symbol in syntax defined by the system)

        Definition: A symbol in syntax defined by the system. The symbol may be a predefined code or an expression in a syntax defined by the coding system (e.g. post-coordination)

      • setSystem

        public abstract BaseCodingDt setSystem​(String theUri)
        Sets the value for system (Identity of the terminology system)

        Definition: The identification of the code system that defines the meaning of the symbol in the code.
