EnumSet complementOf() Method in Java

The java.util.EnumSet.complementOf(Enum_Set) method is used to create an EnumSet containing elements of the same type as that of the specified Enum_Set, with the values present in the enum but other than those contained in the specified Enum_Set.

Syntax:

New_Enum_Set = EnumSet.complementOf(Enum_Set)

Parameters: The method accepts one parameter Enum_Set whose values are to be neglected while populating the values into the new complemented enum set.



Return Values: The method does not return any values.

Exceptions: The method throws NullPointerException if the value Enum_Set is NULL.

                                        GFG.Geeks);
  
        // Displaying the empty EnumSet
        System.out.println("Initial set: " + e_set);
  
        // Cloning the set
        EnumSet<GFG> final_set = EnumSet.complementOf(e_set);
  
        // Displaying the final set
        System.out.println("The updated set is:" + final_set);
    }
}

Output:

Initial set: [Welcome, To, Geeks]
The updated set is:[The, World, of]
