The indexOf() method belongs to the concrete value members of the class Abstract Iterator. It is helpful in searching the values and then indicating their positions in the stated iterator.
  • Method Definition:
    def indexOf(elem: B): Int
    
    Where, elem is the element to be searched.
  • Return Type: It returns the index of the first occurrence of the element elem in the stated Scala iterator.
Example :
// Scala program of indexOf()
// method
  
// Creating object
object GfG
  
    // Main method
    def main(args:Array[String])
    {
      
        // Declaring an iterator
        val iter = Iterator(2, 3, 4, 9, 6)
          
        // Applying indexOf method
        val result = iter.indexOf(9)
          
        // Displays output
        println(result)
  
    }

                    
Output:
3
Here, the value 9 in the indexOf method is present in the third position of the iterator so, it returns three. Example :
// Scala program of indexOf()
// method
  
// Creating object
object GfG
  
    // Main method
    def main(args:Array[String])
    {
      
        // Declaring an iterator
        val iter = Iterator(2, 3, 4, 9, 6)
          
        // Applying indexOf method
        val result = iter.indexOf(7)
          
        // Displays output
        println(result)
  
    }

                    
Output:
-1
Here, the value stated in the method indexOf is not present in the iterator so, it returns -1. Note: If the value given in the indexOf method is not present in the stated iterator then this method will return -1.
