Java Character isMirrored(int codePoint) Method

Java isMirrored(int codePoint) is a part of Character class. This method is used to check whether the specified Unicode code point 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 the text that is left-to-right but as a ")" in text that is right-to-left.

Syntax:

public static boolean isMirrored(int codePoint)

Parameters:

The parameter passed is the Unicode code point 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)
	{  
		int cp1 = 48;  
		int cp2 = 60;  
		int cp3 = 119;  
		int cp4 = 93;   
		int cp5 = 1232;  

		boolean b1 = Character.isMirrored(cp1);  
		boolean b2 = Character.isMirrored(cp2);  
		boolean b3 = Character.isMirrored(cp3);  
		boolean b4 = Character.isMirrored(cp4);  
		boolean b5 = Character.isMirrored(cp5);  

		System.out.println((char)cp1 +" is mirrored??:  "+b1);  
		System.out.println((char)cp2 +" is mirrored??:  "+b2);  
		System.out.println((char)cp3 +" is mirrored??:  "+b3);  
		System.out.println((char)cp4 +" is mirrored??:  "+b4);  
		System.out.println((char)cp5 +" is mirrored??:  "+b5);  
	}  
} 


0 is mirrored??: false
< is mirrored??: true
w 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 Unicode character: ");  
			Scanner sc = new Scanner(System.in);        
			int cp = sc.nextInt(); 
			boolean b = Character.isMirrored(cp);
			System.out.println((char)cp + " is mirrored?: "+b);
		}
		catch(Exception e)
		{
			System.out.println("Invalid Input!!");
		}
	}  
}


Enter the Unicode character: 93
] is mirrored?: true
****************************************
Enter the Unicode character: 98
b is mirrored?: false
