Vector removeElement() method in Java with Example
  • Last Updated : 24 Dec, 2018

The java.util.Vector.removeElement() method is used to remove first occurrence of particular object. If object is not found then it returns false else it returns true.
If a particular object is present inside vector and removeElement() method call on that vector element then this method reduces vector size by 1.

Syntax:

public boolean removeElement(Object obj)

Parameters: This function accepts object as parameter which is to be removed.

Return Type: On Successful of deletion this function returns True otherwise this function returns False.

Exceptions:This method does not raise any exception.



Below programs illustrates the Vector.removeElement() function.

        System.out.println("Size: " + v.size());
    }

Output:

Before deleting
Vector: [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6]
Size: 6

After deleting
Element '3' has been removed
Vector: [1, 2, 4, 5, 6]
Size: 5
