ByteBuffer getFloat() method in Java with Examples

getFloat()

The getFloat() method of java.nio.ByteBuffer class is used to read the next four bytes at this buffer’s current position, composing them into a float value according to the current byte order, and then increments the position by four.

Syntax:

public abstract float getFloat()

Return Value: This method returns the float value at the buffer’s current position.

Exception: This method throws BufferUnderflowException if there are fewer than four bytes remaining in this buffer.

Below are the examples to illustrate the getFloat() method:

getFloat(int index)

The getFloat(int index) method of java.nio.ByteBuffer is used to read four bytes at the given index, composing them into a float value according to the current byte order.

Syntax:

public abstract float getFloat(int index)

Parameters: This method takes index as parameter which is the index from which the Byte will be read.

Return Value: This method returns the float value at the given index.

Exception: This method throws IndexOutOfBoundsException if index is negative or not smaller than the buffer’s limit.

Below are the examples to illustrate the getFloat(int index) method:
