The add() method of NavigableSet in Java is used to add a specific element into a NavigableSet collection. The function adds the element only if the specified element is not already present in the NavigableSet else the function return False if the element is already present in the NavigableSet.

Syntax:

boolean add(E element)

Where, E is the type of element maintained
by this NavigableSet collection.

Parameters: The parameter element is of the type of element maintained by this NavigableSet and it refers to the element to be added to the NavigableSet.

Return Value: The function returns True if the element is not present in the NavigableSet and is new, else it returns False if the element is already present in the NavigableSet.

Note: The add() method of NavigableSet interface in java is inherited from the Set interface.



Below programs illustrate the use of Java.util.NavigableSet.add() method:

Program 1:




// Java code to illustrate add() method
import java.io.*;
import java.util.*;
  
public class NavigableSetDemo {
    public static void main(String args[])
    {
        // Creating an empty NavigableSet
        NavigableSet<String> s = new TreeSet<String>();
  
        // Use add() method to add elements into
        // the NavigableSet
        s.add("Welcome");
        s.add("To");
        s.add("Geeks");
        s.add("4");
        s.add("Geeks");
        s.add("NavigableSet");
  
        // Displaying the NavigableSet
        System.out.println("NavigableSet: " + s);
    }
}
Output:
NavigableSet: [4, Geeks, NavigableSet, To, Welcome]

Program 2:




// Java code to illustrate add() method
import java.io.*;
import java.util.*;
  
public class NavigableSetDemo {
    public static void main(String args[])
    {
        // Creating an empty NavigableSet
        NavigableSet<Integer> s = new TreeSet<Integer>();
  
        // Use add() method to add elements into the NavigableSet
        s.add(10);
        s.add(20);
        s.add(30);
        s.add(40);
        s.add(50);
        s.add(60);
  
        // Displaying the NavigableSet
        System.out.println("NavigableSet: " + s);
    }
}
Output:
NavigableSet: [10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60]
