LocalTime isAfter() method in Java with Examples
  • Last Updated : 03 Dec, 2018

The isAfter() method of a LocalTime class is used to check if this LocalTime timeline position is after the LocalTime passed as parameter or not. If this LocalTime timeline position is after the LocalTime passed as a parameter then the method will return true else false. The comparison is based on the time-line position of the instants.

Syntax:

public boolean isAfter(LocalTime other)

Parameters: This method accepts a single parameter other which is the other LocalTime object to compare to. It should not be null.

Return value: This method returns true if this time is after the specified time, else false.

Below programs illustrate the isAfter() method:



Program 1:




// Java program to demonstrate
// LocalTime.isAfter() method
  
import java.time.*;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // create a LocalTime object
        LocalTime time1
            = LocalTime.parse("19:34:50.63");
  
        // create other LocalTime
        LocalTime time2
            = LocalTime.parse("23:14:00.63");
  
        // print instances
        System.out.println("LocalTime 1: " + time1);
        System.out.println("LocalTime 2: " + time2);
  
        // check if LocalTime is after LocalTime
        // using isAfter()
        boolean value = time1.isAfter(time2);
  
        // print result
        System.out.println("Is LocalTime1 after LocalTime2: "
                           + value);
    }
}
Output:
LocalTime 1: 19:34:50.630
LocalTime 2: 23:14:00.630
Is LocalTime1 after LocalTime2: false

Program 2:




// Java program to demonstrate
// LocalTime.isAfter() method
  
import java.time.*;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // create a LocalTime object
        LocalTime time1
            = LocalTime.parse("23:59:11.98");
  
        // create other LocalTime
        LocalTime time2
            = LocalTime.parse("10:24:53.21");
  
        // print instances
        System.out.println("LocalTime 1: " + time1);
        System.out.println("LocalTime 2: " + time2);
  
        // check if LocalTime is after LocalTime
        // using isAfter()
        boolean value = time1.isAfter(time2);
  
        // print result
        System.out.println("Is LocalTime1 after LocalTime2: "
                           + value);
    }
}
Output:
LocalTime 1: 23:59:11.980
LocalTime 2: 10:24:53.210
Is LocalTime1 after LocalTime2: true
