LocalDate range() method in Java with Examples

The range() method of a LocalDate class is used to get the range of valid values for the field passes as a parameter. This method returns ValueRange object which contains the minimum and maximum valid values for a field. When the field is not supported then an exception is thrown. This LocalDate is helpful to enhance the accuracy of the returned range.

Syntax:

public ValueRange range(TemporalField field)

Parameters: This method accepts one single parameter field which is the field to query the range for.

Return value: This method returns ValueRange which is the range of valid values for the field, not null.

Exception: This method throws following Exceptions:

  • DateTimeException – if the range for the field cannot be obtained.
  • UnsupportedTemporalTypeException – if the field is not supported.

Below programs illustrate the range() method:

        // get range of Days field
        // from LocalDate using range method
        ValueRange range
            = localD.range(ChronoField.DAY_OF_MONTH);
  
        // print range of DAY_OF_MONTH
        System.out.println("Range of DAY_OF_MONTH: "
                           + range);
    }
}
