Return Value: This method returns a string which represents the pattern which is used to format the current state of this DecimalFormat instance.

Below programs illustrate the above method:



Program 1:




// Java program to illustrate the
// toPattern() method
  
import java.text.DecimalFormat;
  
public class GFG {
  
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // Create a DecimalFormat instance
        DecimalFormat deciFormat = new DecimalFormat();
  
        // Convert the current formatting state
        // to a string object
        String pattern = deciFormat.toPattern();
  
        System.out.println(pattern);
    }
}
Output:
#, ##0.###

Program 2:




// Java program to illustrate the
// toPattern() method
  
import java.text.DecimalFormat;
  
public class GFG {
  
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // Create a DecimalFormat instance
        DecimalFormat deciFormat = new DecimalFormat();
  
        // Apply a new pattern
        deciFormat.applyPattern("##, ##.##");
  
        // Convert the current formatting state
        // to a string object
        String pattern = deciFormat.toPattern();
  
        System.out.println(pattern);
    }
