Example

The following example shows the usage of java.lang.StringBuffer.setCharAt() method.

package com.tutorialspoint;

import java.lang.*;

public class StringBufferDemo {
 
  public static void main(String[] args) {
  
    StringBuffer buff = new StringBuffer("AMIT");
    System.out.println("buffer = " + buff);
    // character at index 3
    System.out.println("character at index 3 = " + buff.charAt(3));
  
    // set character at index 3
    buff.setCharAt(3, 'L');
  
    System.out.println("After Set, buffer = " + buff);
    // character at index 3
    System.out.println("character at index 3 = " + buff.charAt(3));
  }
}

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

buffer = AMIT
character at index 3 = T
After Set, buffer = AMIL
character at index 3 = L
