Float class shortValue() method

  • shortValue() method is available in java.lang package.
  • shortValue() method is used to return the value denoted by this Float object converted to type short (by casting).
  • shortValue() method is a non-static method, it is accessible with class object only and if we try to access the method with the class name then we will get an error.
  • shortValue() method does not throw an exception at the time of conversion from float to short.


    public short shortValue();


  • It does not accept any parameter.

Return value:

The return type of this method is short, it returns a converted (from type float to short) value represented by this Float object.


// Java program to demonstrate the example 
// of shortValue() method of Float class

public class ShortValueOfFloatClass {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        // Variables initialization
        float f1 = 18.20f;
        float f2 = 19.20f;

        // It returns float value denoted by this Float ob1 object
        // and converted to a short by calling ob1.shortValue()
        Float ob1 = new Float(f1);

        // Display ob1 result
        System.out.println("ob1.shortValue(): " + ob1.shortValue());

        // It returns float value denoted by this Float ob2 object
        // and converted to a short by calling ob2.shortValue()
        Float ob2 = new Float(f2);

        // Display ob2 result
        System.out.println("ob2.shortValue(): " + ob2.shortValue());


ob1.shortValue(): 18
ob2.shortValue(): 19
