Hashtable containsValue() Method in Java

The java.util.Hashtable.containsValue() method is used to check whether a particular value is being mapped by a single or more than one key in the Hashtable. It takes the Value as a parameter and returns True if that value is mapped by any of the keys in the table.

Syntax:

Hash_Table.containsValue(Object Value)

Parameters: The method takes just one parameter Value of Object type and refers to the value whose mapping is supposed to be checked by any key inside the table.



Return Value: The method returns boolean true if the value is mapped to any key in the Hashtable otherwise it returns false.

// Java code to illustrate the containsValue() method
import java.util.*;
  
public class Hash_Table_Demo {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // Creating an empty Hashtable
        Hashtable<Integer, String> hash_table = 
        new Hashtable<Integer, String>();
  
        // Putting values in the table
        hash_table.put(10, "Geeks");
        hash_table.put(15, "4");
        hash_table.put(20, "Geeks");
        hash_table.put(25, "Welcomes");
        hash_table.put(30, "You");
  
        // Displaying the Hashtable
        System.out.println("Initial Table is: " + hash_table);
  
        // Checking for the Value 'Geeks'
        System.out.println("Is the value 'Geeks' present? "
        hash_table.containsValue("Geeks"));
  
        // Checking for the Value 'World'
        System.out.println("Is the value 'World' present? "
        hash_table.containsValue("World"));
    }
}

Output:

Initial Table is: {10=Geeks, 20=Geeks, 30=You, 15=4, 25=Welcomes}
Is the value 'Geeks' present? true
Is the value 'World' present? false

        // Checking for the Value '30'
        System.out.println("Is the value '30' present? "
        hash_table.containsValue(30));
  
        // Checking for the Value '40'
        System.out.println("Is the value '40' present? "
        hash_table.containsValue(40));
    }
}

chevron_right


Output:

Initial Table is: {You=30, Welcomes=25, 4=15, Geeks=20}
Is the value '10' present? false
Is the value '30' present? true
Is the value '40' present? false

Note: The same operation can be performed with any type of variation and combination of different data types.
