Syntax

array.length
length property syntax in Scala

Return value

An integer that represents the number of elements in an array.

Code example

object Main extends App {
    // create some arrays
    val randomNumbers = Array(34, 2, 5, 70, 1)
    val fruits = Array("Pineapple", "Banana", "Orange")
    val cgpas : Array[Double] = Array(3.4, 4.5, 2.5, 0.5)
    val names = new Array[String](3)

    names(0) = "Amara"
    names(1) = "Funke"
    names(2) = "Ade"

    // print length of arrays
    println(randomNumbers.length)
    println(fruits.length)
    println(cgpas.length)
    println(names.length)
}
