Description

The java.math.BigDecimal.floatValue() converts this BigDecimal to a float. If this BigDecimal has too great a magnitude represent as a float, it will be converted to Float.NEGATIVE_INFINITY or Float.POSITIVE_INFINITY as appropriate. The conversion can also lose information about the precision of the BigDecimal value when the return value is finite.

Declaration

Following is the declaration for java.math.BigDecimal.floatValue() method

public Float floatValue()

Specified by

  • floatValue in class Number

Parameters

  • NA

Return Value

This method returns the float value of the BigDecimal Object

  • NA

Example

The following example shows the usage of math.BigDecimal.floatValue() method

package com.tutorialspoint;

import java.math.*;

public class BigDecimalDemo {

   public static void main(String[] args) {

      // create a BigDecimal object
      BigDecimal bg;

      // create a Float object
      Float f;

      bg=new BigDecimal("1234.123486");

      // assign the converted value of bg to f
      f=bg.floatValue();

      String str = "Float value of " + bg + " is " + f;

      // print f value
      System.out.println( str );
   }
}

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

Float value of 1234.123486 is 1234.1235
