Input Function

getLastNCharsOfString("Hello world", 3);

Return Value (Output)


Now you can see the output of the above code. As you saw that the 1st parameter is “Hello world” and the 2nd parameter pass is “3” which means that from the n character of the string last 3 parameters will display in the output.

How it Works

This method will take a String and an Integer as a parameter. After that, it will check the count of string to avoid index out of bounds exception. If the Integer n value is greater than the total length of the String then it will use the subString method to get the last specified character from the string.
