  • Last Updated : 13 Aug, 2019

The apply() is utilized to search a key in the stated map.

Method Definition: m1.apply(“key”)

Here m1 is map.

Return Type: It returns the value of the key to be searched.

Example #1:






// Scala program of apply()
// method
  
// Creating object
object GfG
  
    // Main method
    def main(args:Array[String])
    {
      
        // Creating a map
        val m1 = Map("geeks" -> 5, "for" -> 3, "geeks" -> 5)
          
        // Applying apply method
        val result = m1.apply("for"
          
        // Displays output
        println(result)
      
    }
}
Output:
3

Example #2:




// Scala program of apply()
// method
  
// Creating object
object GfG
  
    // Main method
    def main(args:Array[String])
    {
      
        // Creating a map
        val m1 = Map("geeks" -> 5, "for" -> 3, "geeks" -> 1)
          
        // Applying apply method
        val result = m1.apply("geeks"
          
        // Displays output
        println(result)
      
    }
}
Output:
1

Here, identical keys are present with different values so, the value of the last one is returned.
