# Java programming Exercises: Check whether a given string is a valid hex code or not

## Java Regular Expression: Exercise-26 with Solution

Write a Java program to check whether a given string is a valid hex code or not.

A hexadecimal color value is a six-digit code preceded by a # sign, and is exactly 6 characters in length. Each character must be an alphabetic character from A-F (uppercase or lowercase.) or a digit from 0-9.

Sample Solution:

Java Code:

``````public class test {

public static void main(String[] args) {
String text = "123456";
System.out.println("Original String: "+text);
System.out.println("Check the said string is a valid hex code or not? "+validate(text));
text = "#eaecff";
System.out.println("\nOriginal String: "+text);
System.out.println("Check the said string is a valid hex code or not? "+validate(text));
text = "#FF0000";
System.out.println("\nOriginal String: "+text);
System.out.println("Check the said string is a valid hex code or not? "+validate(text));
text = "#DD5C5C";
System.out.println("\nOriginal String: "+text);
System.out.println("Check the said string is a valid hex code or not? "+validate(text));
text = "#0000000";
System.out.println("\nOriginal String: "+text);
System.out.println("Check the said string is a valid hex code or not? "+validate(text));
}

public static boolean validate(String text) {
return text.matches("#[0-9A-Fa-f]{6}");
}
}
```
```

Sample Output:

```Original String: 123456
Check the said string is a valid hex code or not? false

Original String: #eaecff
Check the said string is a valid hex code or not? true

Original String: #FF0000
Check the said string is a valid hex code or not? true

Original String: #DD5C5C
Check the said string is a valid hex code or not? true

Original String: #0000000
Check the said string is a valid hex code or not? false
```

## Java: Tips of the Day

Split Java String by New Line

```String lines[] = string.split("\\r?\\n");
```

There's only really two newlines (UNIX and Windows) that you need to worry about.
