Java Guava | Chars.lastIndexOf() method with Examples

The lastIndexOf() method of Chars Class in Guava library is used to find the last index of the given char value in a char array. This char value to be searched and the char array in which it is to be searched, both are passed as a parameter to this method. It returns an integer value which is the last index of the specified char value. If the value is not found, it returns -1.

Syntax:

public static int lastIndexOf(char[] array,
                              char target)

Parameters: This method accepts two mandatory parameters:



  • array: which is the array of char values in which the char value is to searched.
  • target: which is char value to be searched for last index in the char array.

Return Value: This method returns an integer value which is the last index of the specified char value. If the value is not found, it returns -1.

Below programs illustrates this method:

                       'b', 'c', 'b', 'd' };
  
        char target = 'b';
  
        // Using Chars.lastIndexOf() method
        // to get the index of last appearance
        // of a given element in array
        // and return -1 if element is
        // not found in the array
        int index
            = Chars.lastIndexOf(arr, target);
  
        if (index != -1) {
            System.out.println("Target is present"
                               + " at index "
                               + index);
        }
        else {
            System.out.println("Target is not present"
                               + " in the array");
        }
    }
}
