Number Class shortValue() method

  • shortValue() method is available in java.lang package.
  • shortValue() method is used to return the value denoted by this Number object converted to type short (by casting) and it may involve in rounding or truncations.
  • shortValue() method is a non-static method, it is accessible with the 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 number 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 number to short) value represented by this Number object.


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

public class ShortValueOfNumberClass {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        // Variables initialization
        float f1 = 10.58f;
        double d1 = 20.62;

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

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

        // It returns short value denoted by this object
        // and converted to a short by calling d.shortValue()
        Double d = new Double(d1);

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


f.shortValue(): 10
d.shortValue(): 20
