Groovy - xxxValue()


Advertisements

This method takes on the Number as the parameter and returns a primitive type based on the method which is invoked. Following are the list of methods available −

byte byteValue() 
short shortValue() 
int intValue() 
long longValue() 
float floatValue() 
double doubleValue()

Parameters − No parameters required.

Return Value − The return value is the primitive type returned depending on the value function which is called.

Example

Following is an example of the usage of the method values.

class Example { 
   static void main(String[] args) {  
      Integer x = 5; 
		
      // Converting the number to double primitive type
      println(x.doubleValue()); 
		
      // Converting the number to byte primitive type 
      println(x.byteValue()); 
		
      // Converting the number to float primitive type 
      println(x.floatValue());
		
      // Converting the number to long primitive type 
      println(x.longValue()); 
		
      // Converting the number to short primitive type 
      println(x.shortValue()); 
		
      // Converting the number to int primitive type 
      println(x.intValue());  
   } 
}

When we run the above program, we will get the following result −
