The rewind() method of java.nio.CharBuffer Class is used to rewind this buffer. The position is set to zero and the mark is discarded. Invoke this method before a sequence of channel-write or get operations, assuming that the limit has already been set appropriately. Invoking this method neither changes nor discards the mark’s value.

Syntax:

public ByteBuffer rewind()

Return Value: This method returns this buffer.

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

Examples 1:




// Java program to demonstrate
// rewind() method
  
import java.nio.*;
import java.util.*;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        // defining and allocating CharBuffer
        // using allocate() method
        CharBuffer charBuffer = CharBuffer.allocate(4);
  
        // put char value in charBuffer
        // using put() method
        charBuffer.put('a');
        charBuffer.put((char)105);
  
        // print the char buffer
        System.out.println("Buffer before operation: "
                           + Arrays.toString(
                                 charBuffer.array())
                           + "\nPosition: "
                           + charBuffer.position()
                           + "\nLimit: "
                           + charBuffer.limit());
  
        // rewind the Buffer
        // using rewind() method
        charBuffer.rewind();
  
        // print the charbuffer
        System.out.println("\nBuffer after operation: "
                           + Arrays.toString(
                                 charBuffer.array())
                           + "\nPosition: "
                           + charBuffer.position()
                           + "\nLimit: "
                           + charBuffer.limit());
    }
}

Output:

Buffer before operation: [a, i,,  ]
Position: 2
Limit: 4

Buffer after operation: [a, i,,  ]
Position: 0
Limit: 4

Examples 2:




// Java program to demonstrate
// rewind() method
  
import java.nio.*;
import java.util.*;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        // defining and allocating CharBuffer
        // using allocate() method
        CharBuffer charBuffer
            = CharBuffer.allocate(5);
  
        // put byte value in charBuffer
        // using put() method
        charBuffer.put('a');
        charBuffer.put('b');
        charBuffer.put('c');
  
        // mark will be going to discarded by rewind()
        charBuffer.mark();
  
        // print the buffer
        System.out.println("Buffer before operation: "
                           + Arrays.toString(
                                 charBuffer.array())
                           + "\nPosition: "
                           + charBuffer.position()
                           + "\nLimit: "
                           + charBuffer.limit());
  
        // Rewind the Buffer
        // using rewind() method
        charBuffer.rewind();
  
        // print the buffer
        System.out.println("\nBuffer after operation: "
                           + Arrays.toString(
                                 charBuffer.array())
                           + "\nPosition: "
                           + charBuffer.position()
                           + "\nLimit: "
                           + charBuffer.limit());
    }
}

Output:

Buffer before operation: [a, b, c,,  ]
Position: 3
Limit: 5

Buffer after operation: [a, b, c,,  ]
Position: 0
Limit: 5
