The java.util.SortedSet.iterator() method is used to return an iterator of the same elements as the set. The elements are returned in random order from what present in the set.

Syntax:

Iterator iterate_value = sortedSetInstance.iterator();

Parameters: The function does not take any parameter.

Return Value: The method iterates over the elements of the set and returns the values(iterators).

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

Below program illustrate the java.util.Set.iterator() method:




// Java code to illustrate iterator()
  
import java.util.*;
  
public class SortedSetDemo {
    public static void main(String args[])
    {
  
        // Creating an empty Set
        SortedSet<String> set
            = new TreeSet<String>();
  
        // Use 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("SortedSet: "
                           + set);
  
        // Creating an iterator
        Iterator value = set.iterator();
  
        // Displaying the values after
        // iterating through the iterator
        System.out.println("The iterator values are: ");
        while (value.hasNext()) {
            System.out.println(value.next());
        }
    }
}

Output:

SortedSet: [4, Geeks, To, Welcome]
The iterator values are: 
4
Geeks
To
Welcome
