Java – Truncate a float and a double in java

doublefloating-pointjavatruncate

I want to truncate a float and a double value in java.

Following are my requirements:
1. if i have 12.49688f, it should be printed as 12.49 without rounding off
2. if it is 12.456 in double, it should be printed as 12.45 without rounding off
3. In any case if the value is like 12.0, it should be printed as 12 only.

condition 3 is to be always kept in mind.It should be concurrent with truncating logic.

Best Solution

try this out-

DecimalFormat df = new DecimalFormat("##.##");
df.setRoundingMode(RoundingMode.DOWN);
System.out.println(df.format(12.49688f));
System.out.println(df.format(12.456));
System.out.println(df.format(12.0));

Here, we are using decimal formatter for formating. The roundmode is set to DOWN, so that it will not auto-round the decimal place.

The expected result is:

12.49
12.45
12
