Java Character isMirrored(char ch) Method

Java isMirrored(char ch) is a part of Character class. This method is used to check whether the specified character is mirrored as per the Unicode specification or not.

A character is said to be mirrored if their glyphs are horizontally mirrored when displayed in text that is right-to-left. For example, '\u0028' LEFT PARENTHESIS is semantically defined to be an opening parenthesis. This will appear as a "(" in text that is left-to-right but as a ")" in text that is right-to-left.

Syntax:

public static boolean isMirrored(char ch)

Parameters:

The parameter passed is the character to be checked whether it is mirrored or not.

Returns:

Returns the boolean value true if the specified character is mirrored else return false.

Example 1:

Here, the characters are checked whether they are mirrored or not.

public class StudyTonight
{  
	public static void main(String[] args)
	{  
		char ch1 = '{';  
		char ch2 = 'c';  
		char ch3 = '8';  
		char ch4  = '[';   
		char ch5  = '%';  

		boolean b1 = Character.isMirrored(ch1);  
		boolean b2 = Character.isMirrored(ch2);  
		boolean b3 = Character.isMirrored(ch3);  
		boolean b4 = Character.isMirrored(ch4);  
		boolean b5 = Character.isMirrored(ch5);  

		System.out.println(ch1 +" is mirrored??:  "+b1);  
		System.out.println(ch2 +" is mirrored??:  "+b2);  
		System.out.println(ch3 +" is mirrored??:  "+b3);  
		System.out.println(ch4 +" is mirrored?? : "+b4);  
		System.out.println(ch5 +" is mirrored??:  "+b5);  
	}  
} 


{ is mirrored??: true
c is mirrored??: false
8 is mirrored??: false
[ is mirrored?? : true
% is mirrored??: false

Example 2:

Here is a user-defined example where anyone using this code can put a value of his choice and get the equivalent output.

import java.util.Scanner; 
public class StudyTonight
{  
	public static void main(String[] args)
	{  
		try
		{
			System.out.print("Enter the character: ");  
			Scanner sc = new Scanner(System.in);         
			char ch = sc.next().charAt(0);  
			boolean b = Character.isMirrored(ch);
			System.out.println(ch + " is Mirrored?: "+b);
		}
		catch(Exception e)
		{
			System.out.println("Invalid Input!!");
		}
	}  
}


Enter the character: +
+ is mirrored?: false
