The lastIndexOf() method of ArrayList in Java is used to get the index of the last occurrence of an element in an ArrayList object.

Syntax :


Parameter : The element whose last index is to be returned.

Returns :
It returns the last occurrence of the element passed in the parameter. It returns -1 if the element is not found.

Program to demonstrate the working of lastIndexOf():

// Java code to demonstrate the working of
// lastIndexOf() method in ArrayList
// for ArrayList functions
import java.util.ArrayList;
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
        // creating an Empty Integer ArrayList
        ArrayList<Integer> arr = new ArrayList<Integer>(7);
        // using add() to initialize values
        System.out.println("The list initially " + arr);
        // last index of 30
        int element = arr.lastIndexOf(30);
        if (element != -1)
            System.out.println("the lastIndexof of"
                             " 30 is " + element);
            System.out.println("30 is not present in"
                                        " the list");
        // last index of 100
        element = arr.lastIndexOf(100);
        if (element != -1)
            System.out.println("the lastIndexof of 100"
                                      " is " + element);
            System.out.println("100 is not present in"
                                           " the list");

Output :

The list initially [10, 20, 30, 40, 30, 30, 40]
the lastIndexof of 30 is 5
100 is not present in the list
