ASCII Value of a character using Java

Here, in this page we will discuss the program to print ASCII value of a character using java. ASCII value can be any integer number between 0 and 127 and consists of character variable instead of the character itself in Java programming.

Did you know?

 ASCII stands for American Standard Code for Information Interchange
  • Which is a binary code used by electronic equipment for electronic communications
  • A total of 128 characters have been assigned values from 0 – 127
  • Alphabets (  65 – 90  &  97 – 122  )
  • Digits (  48 – 57  )
  • Remaining are Special Character (  !, @, #, $, * …..)


  • User gives an input
  • Input is stored in a char type variable say val.
  • val is converted from char to int .
  • The ASCII value of Character is Obtained

C code

//Java program to print ASCII values of a character

import java.util.Scanner;
class Main
	public static void main(String[] args)
		//scanner class object creation
		Scanner sc=new Scanner(;
		//input from user
		System.out.print("Enter a Character: ");
		//typecasting from character type to integer type
		int i = c;
		//printing ASCII value of the character
		System.out.println("ASCII value of "+c+" is "+i);
		//closing scanner class(not compulsory, but good practice)


Enter a Character: A
ASCII value of A is 65
