Java Long floatValue() Method

Java floatValue() method belongs to the Long class of the java.lang package. This method returns the floating equivalent of the Long after a widening primitive conversion(Conversion of a lower data type into a higher data type).

In short, this method is used to convert a Long object into a primitive float value.

Syntax:

public float floatValue()  

Parameter:

No parameter is passed in this method.

Returns:

The float equivalent of the Long object that is created after conversion.

Example 1:

Here, using the floatValue() method, the Long object is converted into its float equivalent.

import java.lang.Long;

public class StudyTonight
{  
    public static void main(String[] args) 
    {  
        //converting Long object into float
        Long x = 65L;
        float i = x.floatValue();
        System.out.println(i);       
          
        Long y = 90L;  
        float d = y.floatValue();  
        System.out.println(d);
    }  
}    


65.0
90.0

Example 2:

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

import java.util.Scanner;  

public class StudyTonight
{  
    public static void main(String[] args) 
    {  
        try
        {
            System.out.print("Enter the value to be converted : ");  
            Scanner sc = new Scanner(System.in);  
            long i = sc.nextLong();  
            Long n = i ;  
            float val = n.floatValue();  //converting Long object into float
            System.out.println("Float Value is: " + val);  
        }
        catch(Exception e)
        {
            System.out.println("not a valid long"); 
        }
    }
}


Enter the value to be converted : 75
Float Value is: 75.0
********************************************
Enter the value to be converted : 0x665
not a valid long
