String StartsWith(String Prefix, Int Toffset)



This process has two variations and tests if a thread starts with the particular prefix commencement a specified index or by default at the beginning.


Here is the syntax of this method:

public boolean startsWith(String prefix, int toffset)


Here is the detail of parameters:

  • prefix − the prefix to be matched.
  • toffset − where to begin looking in the string.

Return Value

  • It returns true if the character sequence represented by the argument is a prefix of the character sequence represented by this string; false otherwise.


import java.io.*;
public class Test {
   public static void main(String args[]) {
      String Str = new String("Welcome to Intellinuts.com");

      System.out.print("Return Value :" );
      System.out.println(Str.startsWith("Intelli", 9) );

This will produce the following result:


Return Value :true
