Java.lang.Byte.toString() Method



The java.lang.Byte.toString() returns a String object representing this Byte's value. The value is converted to signed decimal representation and returned as a string, exactly as if the byte value were given as an argument to the toString(byte) method.


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

public String toString()


toString in class Object


  • NA

Return Value

This method returns a string representation of the value of this object in base 10.


  • NA


The following example shows the usage of lang.Byte.toString() 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 String's s1,s2
      String s1, s2;

      // assign values to b1, b2
      b1 = new Byte("123");
      b2 = new Byte("-123");

      // assign toString values of b1, b2 to s1, s2
      s1 = b1.toString();
      s2 = b2.toString();

      String str1 = "String value of Byte " + b1 + " is " + s1;
      String str2 = "String value of Byte " + b2 + " is " + s2;

      // print s1, s2 values
      System.out.println( str1 );
      System.out.println( str2 );

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

String value of Byte 123 is 123
String value of Byte -123 is -123
