FloatBuffer arrayOffset() method in Java With Examples

The arrayOffset() method of java.nio.FloatBuffer class is used to return the offset within the buffer’s backing array of the first element of the buffer. It means that if this buffer is backed by an array, then buffer position p corresponds to array index p + arrayOffset().

Inorder to check whether this buffer has a backing array, hasArray() method can be used. It ensures that this buffer has an accessible backing array.

Syntax :

public final int arrayOffset()

Return Value: This method returns the offset within this buffer’s array of the first element of the buffer.

Exception: This method throws ReadOnlyBufferException if this buffer is backed by an array but is read-only

Below program illustrates the arrayOffset() method.

// Java program to demonstrate
// arrayOffset() method
  
import java.nio.*;
import java.util.*;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // Declaring the capacity of the FloatBuffer
        int capacity = 10;
  
        // Creating the FloatBuffer
        try {
  
            // creating object of floatbuffer
            // and allocating size capacity
            FloatBuffer fb = FloatBuffer.allocate(capacity);
  
            // putting the value in floatbuffer
            fb.put(8.56F);
            fb.put(2, 9.61F);
  
            // print the FloatBuffer
            System.out.println("FloatBuffer: "
                               + Arrays.toString(fb.array()));
  
            // print the arrayOffset
            System.out.println("arrayOffset: "
                               + fb.arrayOffset());
        }
  
        catch (IllegalArgumentException e) {
            System.out.println("IllegalArgumentException catched");
        }
  
        catch (ReadOnlyBufferException e) {
            System.out.println("Exception throws" + e);
        }
    }
}

Output:

FloatBuffer: [8.56, 0.0, 9.61, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0]
arrayOffset: 0

Try to print the array offset of read only buffer
Exception throws: java.nio.ReadOnlyBufferException
