Character.isTitleCase() in Java with examples

The java.lang.Character.isTitleCase() in an inbuilt method in java which determines if the specified character is a titlecase character or not. A character is a titlecase character if its general category type, provided by getType(codePoint), is a TITLECASE_LETTER.
Some characters look like pairs of Latin letters. For example, there is an uppercase letter that looks like “LJ” and has a corresponding lowercase letter that looks like “lj”. A third form, which looks like “Lj”, is the appropriate form to use when rendering a word in lowercase with initial capitals, as for a book title.

Given below are some of the Unicode characters for which this method returns true:

  1. LATIN CAPITAL LETTER D WITH SMALL LETTER Z WITH CARON
  2. LATIN CAPITAL LETTER L WITH SMALL LETTER J
  3. LATIN CAPITAL LETTER N WITH SMALL LETTER J
  4. LATIN CAPITAL LETTER D WITH SMALL LETTER Z

Syntax:



public static boolean isTitleCase(char ch)

Parameter:The function accepts only one mandatory parameter ch which signifies the character to be tested.

Return Value: This method returns true if the character is titlecase else it returns false.

Below program illustrate the isTitleCase() method:
