Java program to count number of digits in a string

In this article of java program, we will learn how to count the number of digits in a string?
Submitted by Jyoti Singh, on October 05, 2017

Given a string and we have to count total number of digits in it using Java.


Input string: "code2017"
Number of digits: 4

In this code we have one input:

  1. An int input (no. of test cases or more clearly the number of strings user wants to check (say 5 i.e user wants to check 5 strings and the program will continue for 5 inputs).
  2. A string input (It will be a string entered by the user which needs to be checked).

For each string we will have two outputs

The number of digits in string

Consider the program: It will take number of inputs, string and print total number of digits.

import java.util.Scanner;

public class CheckDigits {

	public static void main(String[] args) {
		Scanner Kb=new Scanner(System.in);
		System.out.println("How man strings u want to check?");
		//Take the input of no. of test cases
		int t=Kb.nextInt();
		//looping until the test cases are zero
			//Input the string
			System.out.println("Enter the string!");
			String s=Kb.next();
			//counter to count the number of digits in a string
			int digits=0;
			//looping until the string length is zero
			for(int i=0;i<s.length();i++){
				//isDigit is a function of Character class it checks a particular char that whether it is a digit or not
					//counter digit will be incremented each time when a character will be a digit
			//prints the number of digits in a string
