  • it is a combining mark

  • it is a non-spacing mark

  • isIdentifierIgnorable returns true for this character.

Following is the declaration for java.lang.Character.isUnicodeIdentifierPart() method

public static boolean isUnicodeIdentifierPart(char ch)

Parameters

  • ch - the character to be tested

Return Value

This method returns true if the character may be part of a Unicode identifier, false otherwise.

Exception

  • NA

Example

The following example shows the usage of lang.Character.isUnicodeIdentifierPart() method.

package com.tutorialspoint;

import java.lang.*;

public class CharacterDemo {

   public static void main(String[] args) {

      // create 2 char primitives ch1, ch2
      char ch1, ch2;

      // assign values to ch1, ch2
      ch1 = '~';
      ch2 = '1';

      // create 2 boolean primitives b1, b2
      boolean b1, b2;

      /**
       *  check if ch1, ch2 may be part of a Unicode identifier
       *  and assign results to b1, b2.
       */
      b1 = Character.isUnicodeIdentifierPart(ch1);
      b2 = Character.isUnicodeIdentifierPart(ch2);

      String str1 = ch1 + " may be part of a Unicode identifier is " + b1;
      String str2 = ch2 + " may be part of a Unicode identifier is " + b2;

      // print b1, b2 values
      System.out.println( str1 );
      System.out.println( str2 );
   }
}

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

~ may be part of a Unicode identifier is false
1 may be part of a Unicode identifier is true
