public short shortValue()


No parameter is required.

Return Value

Returns the float value represented by this object converted to type short.




In the example below, the java.lang.Float.shortValue() method returns a Float object after conversion to type short.

import java.lang.*;

public class MyClass {
  public static void main(String[] args) {
    //creating Float objects
    Float val1 = 25.2f;
    Float val2 = -25.2f;

    //printing shortValue of the Float objects
    System.out.println("shortValue of the val1 is: " + val1.shortValue()); 
    System.out.println("shortValue of the val2 is: " + val2.shortValue());   

The output of the above code will be:

shortValue of the val1 is: 25
shortValue of the val2 is: -25
