SortedSet contains() method in Java with Examples

The contains() method is used to check whether a specific element is present in the SortedSet or not. So basically it is used to check if a SortedSet contains any particular element.

Syntax:

boolean contains(Object element)

Parameters: The parameter element is of the type of SortedSet. This is the element that needs to be tested if it is present in the set or not.



Return Value: The method returns true if the element is present in the set else return False.

Note: The addAll() method in SortedSet is inherited from the Set interface in Java.

Below program illustrate the Java.util.Set.contains() method:

// Java code to illustrate
// SortedSet.contains() method
  
import java.io.*;
import java.util.*;
  
public class SortedSetDemo {
    public static void main(String args[])
    {
  
        // Creating an empty Set
        SortedSet<String> set
            = new TreeSet<String>();
  
        // Using add() method to
        // add elements into the Set
        set.add("Welcome");
        set.add("To");
        set.add("Geeks");
        set.add("4");
        set.add("Geeks");
  
        // Displaying the Set
        System.out.println("Set: " + set);
  
        // Check for "Geeks" in the set
        System.out.println(
            "Does the Set contains 'Geeks'? "
            + set.contains("Geeks"));
  
        // Check for "4" in the set
        System.out.println(
            "Does the Set contains '4'? "
            + set.contains("4"));
  
        // Check if the Set contains "No"
        System.out.println(
            "Does the Set contains 'No'? "
            + set.contains("No"));
    }
}
