  • Last Updated : 11 Aug, 2021
Geek Week

The elements() method of Properties class is used to get the enumeration of this Properties object. It can be further used to retrieve the elements sequentially using this Enumeration received.
 

Syntax:  

public Enumeration elements()

Parameters: This method do not accepts any parameters.
Returns: This method returns an Enumeration of the values in this Properties object.
Below programs illustrate the elements() method:
Program 1:  

Java




// Java program to demonstrate
// elements() method.
 
import java.util.*;
 
public class GFG {
 
    // Main method
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
 
        // Create a properties and add some values
        Properties properties = new Properties();
        properties.put("Pen", 10);
        properties.put("Book", 500);
        properties.put("Clothes", 400);
        properties.put("Mobile", 5000);
 
        // Print Properties details
        System.out.println("Current Properties: "
                           + properties.toString());
 
        // Creating an empty enumeration to store
        Enumeration enu = properties.elements();
 
        System.out.println("The enumeration of values are:");
 
        // Displaying the Enumeration
        while (enu.hasMoreElements()) {
            System.out.println(enu.nextElement());
        }
    }
}
Output: 
Current Properties: {Book=500, Mobile=5000, Pen=10, Clothes=400}
The enumeration of values are:
500
5000
10
400

 

Program 2: 



Java




// Java program to demonstrate
// elements() method.
 
import java.util.*;
 
public class GFG {
 
    // Main method
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
 
        // Create a properties and add some values
        Properties properties = new Properties();
 
        properties.put(1, "100RS");
        properties.put(2, "500RS");
        properties.put(3, "1000RS");
 
        // print Properties details
        System.out.println("Current Properties: "
                           + properties.toString());
 
        // Creating an empty enumeration to store
        Enumeration enu = properties.elements();
 
        System.out.println("The enumeration of values are:");
 
        // Displaying the Enumeration
        while (enu.hasMoreElements()) {
            System.out.println(enu.nextElement());
        }
    }
}
Output: 
Current Properties: {3=1000RS, 2=500RS, 1=100RS}
The enumeration of values are:
1000RS
500RS
100RS
