Stack setSize() method in Java with Example

The setSize() method of Java.util.Stack class changes the size of this Stack instance to the size passed as the parameter.

Syntax:

public void setSize(int size)

Parameters: This method takes the new size as a parameter.



Exception: This method throws ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException if the new size is negative.

Below are the examples to illustrate the setSize() method.

Example 1:

// Java program to demonstrate
// setSize() method for Integer value
  
import java.util.*;
  
public class GFG1 {
    public static void main(String[] argv)
    {
  
        try {
  
            // Creating object of Stack<Integer>
            Stack<Integer>
                stack = new Stack<Integer>();
  
            // adding element to stack
            stack.add(10);
            stack.add(20);
            stack.add(30);
            stack.add(40);
  
            // Print the Stack
            System.out.println("Stack: " + stack);
  
            // Print the current size of Stack
            System.out.println("Current size of Stack: "
                               + stack.size());
  
            // Change the size to 10
            stack.setSize(10);
  
            // Print the current size of Stack
            System.out.println("New size of Stack: "
                               + stack.size());
        }
  
        catch (Exception e) {
            System.out.println("Exception thrown : " + e);
        }
    }
}
