Class Dec2Bin

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    FreeRefFunction, Function, Function1Arg, Function2Arg

    public class Dec2Bin
    extends java.lang.Object
    implements FreeRefFunction
    Implementation for Excel Bin2Dec() function.

    Bin2Dec (number,[places] )

    Converts a decimal number to binary.

    The DEC2BIN function syntax has the following arguments:

    • Number Required. The decimal integer you want to convert. If number is negative, valid place values are ignored and DEC2BIN returns a 10-character (10-bit) binary number in which the most significant bit is the sign bit. The remaining 9 bits are magnitude bits. Negative numbers are represented using two's-complement notation.
    • Places Optional. The number of characters to use. If places is omitted, DEC2BIN uses the minimum number of characters necessary. Places is useful for padding the return value with leading 0s (zeros).


    • If number < -512 or if number > 511, DEC2BIN returns the #NUM! error value.
    • If number is nonnumeric, DEC2BIN returns the #VALUE! error value.
    • If DEC2BIN requires more than places characters, it returns the #NUM! error value.
    • If places is not an integer, it is truncated.
    • If places is nonnumeric, DEC2BIN returns the #VALUE! error value.
    • If places is zero or negative, DEC2BIN returns the #NUM! error value.

      • evaluate

        public ValueEval evaluate​(ValueEval[] args,
                                  OperationEvaluationContext ec)
        Specified by:
        evaluate in interface FreeRefFunction
        args - the pre-evaluated arguments for this function. args is never null, nor are any of its elements.
        ec - primarily used to identify the source cell containing the formula being evaluated. may also be used to dynamically create reference evals.
        never null. Possibly an instance of ErrorEval in the case of a specified Excel error (Exceptions are never thrown to represent Excel errors).
      • evaluate

        public final ValueEval evaluate​(ValueEval[] args,
                                        int srcRowIndex,
                                        int srcColumnIndex)
        Specified by:
        evaluate in interface Function
        args - the evaluated function arguments. Empty values are represented with BlankEval or MissingArgEval, never null.
        srcRowIndex - row index of the cell containing the formula under evaluation
        srcColumnIndex - column index of the cell containing the formula under evaluation
        The evaluated result, possibly an ErrorEval, never null. Note - Excel uses the error code #NUM! instead of IEEE NaN, so when numeric functions evaluate to Double.NaN be sure to translate the result to ErrorEval.NUM_ERROR.
