Field setShort() method in Java with Examples
The setShort() method of java.lang.reflect.Field is used to set the value of a field as a short on the specified object. When you need to set the value of a field of an object as short then you can use this method to set value over an Object. Syntax:
public void setShort(Object obj, short s) throws IllegalArgumentException, IllegalAccessException
Parameters: This method accepts two parameters:
- obj: which is the object whose field should be modified and
- s: which is the new value for the field of obj being modified.
Return: This method returns nothing.
Exception: This method throws the following Exception:
- IllegalAccessException: if this Field object is enforcing Java language access control and the underlying field is either inaccessible or final.
- IllegalArgumentException: if the specified object is not an instance of the class or interface declaring the underlying field (or a subclass or implementor thereof), or if an unwrapping conversion fails.
- NullPoshorterException: if the specified object is null and the field is an instance field.
- ExceptionInInitializerError: if the initialization provoked by this method fails.
