The setLocale() method of java.text.MessageFormat class is used to set the new locale in this message format object. 

Syntax:

public void setLocale(Locale locale)

Parameter: This method takes new locale object as a parameter. 

Return Value: This method has nothing to return.

Below are the examples to illustrate the setLocale() method: 

Example 1: 

Java




// Java program to demonstrate
// setLocale() method
 
import java.text.*;
import java.util.*;
import java.io.*;
 
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] argv)
    {
        // creating and initializing  MessageFormat
        MessageFormat mf
            = new MessageFormat("{0, number, #}");
 
        // setting new Locale for
        // message format object
        // using setLocale() method
        mf.setLocale(new Locale("en-US"));
 
        // getting Locale
        // used in MessageFormat Object
        Locale locale = mf.getLocale();
 
        // display the result
        System.out.println("Locale is : " + locale);
    }
}


Output:

Locale is : en-us

Example 2:

import java.text.*;
import java.util.*;
import java.io.*;
 
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] argv)
    {
        // creating and initializing  MessageFormat
        MessageFormat mf
            = new MessageFormat("{0, number, #}, {2, date, #.#}, {4, time}");
 
        // setting new Locale for
        // message format object
        // using setLocale() method
        mf.setLocale(new Locale("zh-Hant-TW"));
 
        // getting Locale
        // used in MessageFormat Object
        Locale locale = mf.getLocale();
