Java lang Integer.toHexString() Method with Examples

The Java.lang.Integer.toHexString() is a built-in function in Java which returns a string representation of the integer argument as an unsigned integer in base 16. The function accepts a single parameter as an argument in Integer data-type.

Syntax :

public static String toHexString(int num)

Parameter : The function accepts a single mandatory parameter
num - This parameter specifies the number which is to be converted
to a Hexadecimal string. The data-type is int. 

Return Value : The function returns a string representation of the int argument as an unsigned integer in base 16.

Examples:

Input : 11
Output : b

Input : 12
Output : c

Program 1: The program below demonstrates the working of function.
