Character.isHighSurrogate() method in Java with examples

The java.lang.Character.isHighSurrogate() is a inbuilt method in java which determines if the given char value is a Unicode high-surrogate code unit (also known as leading-surrogate code unit). Such values do not represent characters by themselves but are used in the representation of supplementary characters in the UTF-16 encoding.

Syntax:

public static boolean isHighSurrogate(char ch)

Parameters: The function accepts a single mandatory parameter ch which specifies the value to be tested.



Return Value: The function returns a boolean value. The value returned is True if the char value is between MIN_HIGH_SURROGATE and MAX_HIGH_SURROGATE inclusive, False otherwise.

        boolean bool1 = Character.isHighSurrogate(c1);
        System.out.println("c1 is a Unicode"+
        "high-surrogate code unit ? " + bool1);
  
        boolean bool2 = Character.isHighSurrogate(c2);
        System.out.println("c2 is a Unicode"
        "high-surrogate code unit ? " + bool2);
    }
}
