Character.isLowSurrogate() method in Java with examples

The java.lang.Character.isLowSurrogate(char ch) is an inbuilt method in java which determines if the given char value is a Unicode low-surrogate code unit (also known as trailing-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 isLowSurrogate(char ch)

Parameters: The function accepts one mandatory parameter ch which specifies the character to be tested.

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

        boolean bool1 = Character.isLowSurrogate(c1);
        System.out.println("c1 is a Unicode low-surrogate ? " + bool1);
  
        boolean bool2 = Character.isLowSurrogate(c2);
        System.out.println(c2 + " is a Unicode low-surrogate ? " + bool2);
    }
}
