Array setFloat() method in Java

The java.lang.reflect.Array.setFloat() is an inbuilt method in Java and is used to change a specified float value to a specified index of a given object array.

Syntax:



Array.setFloat(Object []array, int index, float value)

Parameter: This method takes three parameters:

  • array: This is an array of type Object which is to be updated.
  • index: This is the index of the array which is to be updated.
  • value: This is the float value that is to be set at the given index of the given array.

Return Value : Since this method has a void return type, hence it doesn’t returns any value. The update reflects upon the Object array passed as the argument.

Exception: This method throws following exceptions:

  • NullPointerException– when the array is null.
  • IllegalArgumentException– when the given object array is not an Array.
  • ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException– if the given index is not in the range of the size of the array.
  • Below is the implementation of Array.setFloat() method:

            System.out.print("Before Set : ");
      
            // printing the array
            for (float x : f) {
                System.out.print(x + " ");
            }
      
            float value = 4.0f;
      
            // setFloat method of class Array
            Array.setFloat(f, 1, value);
      
            System.out.print("\nAfter Set : ");
      
            // printing array
            for (float x : f) {
                System.out.print(x + " ");
            }
        }
    }

    Output:

    Before Set : 1.0 2.0 3.0 
    After Set : 1.0 4.0 3.0
