Java.lang.Byte.floatValue() Method



The java.lang.Byte.floatValue() returns the value of this Byte as a float.


Following is the declaration for java.lang.Byte.floatValue() method

public float floatValue()

Specified by

floatValue in class Number


  • NA

Return Value

This method returns the numeric value represented by this object after conversion to type float.


  • NA


The following example shows the usage of lang.Byte.floatValue() method.

package com.tutorialspoint;

import java.lang.*;

public class ByteDemo {

   public static void main(String[] args) {

      // create 2 Byte objects b1, b2
      Byte b1, b2;

      // create 2 float primitives f1, f2
      float f1, f2;

      // assign values to b1, b2
      b1 = new Byte("100");
      b2 = new Byte("-10");

      // assign float values of b1, b2 to f1, f2
      f1 = b1.floatValue();
      f2 = b2.floatValue();

      String str1 = "float value of Byte " + b1 + " is " + f1;
      String str2 = "float value of Byte " + b2 + " is " + f2;

      // print f1, f2 values
      System.out.println( str1 );
      System.out.println( str2 );

Let us compile and run the above program, this will produce the following result:

float value of Byte 100 is 100.0
float value of Byte -10 is -10.0
