StringBuffer codePointAt() method in Java with Examples

The codePointAt() method of StringBuffer class returns a character Unicode point at that index in sequence contained by StringBuffer. This method returns the “Unicodenumber” of the character at that index. Value of index must be lie between 0 to length-1.
If the char value present at the given index lies in the high-surrogate range, the following index is less than the length of this sequence, and the char value at the following index is in the low-surrogate range, then the supplementary code point corresponding to this surrogate pair is returned. Otherwise, the char value at the given index is returned.

Syntax:

public int codePointAt(int index)

Parameters: This method takes one parameter index which is int value representing index of the character whose unicode value to be returned.



Return Value: This method returns unicode number of the character at the specified index.

Exception: This method throws IndexOutOfBoundsException when index is negative or greater than or equal to length().

Below programs demonstrate the codePointAt() method of StringBuffer Class:

// Java program to demonstrate
// the codePointAt() method
  
class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // create a StringBuffer object
        StringBuffer str = new StringBuffer();
  
        // add the String to StringBuffer Object
        str.append("Geeksforgeeks");
  
        // get unicode of char at position 10
        int unicode = str.codePointAt(10);
  
        // print the result
        System.out.println("Unicode of Character "
                           + "at Position 10 "
                           + "in StringBuffer = "
                           + unicode);
    }
}

        }
    }
