Tricky Star Hyphen Combination Pattern Program in Java

And below Java concepts are used to print that patterns

  • For Loop
  • While Loop
  • if..else

1). Program to print left half diamond pattern using star(*) and hyphen(-) in Java

star hyphen combination pattern program in c
import java.util.*;  
class Main{
    public static void main(String ...a){
    int i,j,k;
    Scanner sc= new Scanner(System.in);
    System.out.print("enter the value n: ");  
    int n= sc.nextInt();  
    for(i=0;i<n;i++)
    {
	    for(j=0;j<n-i;j++){
            System.out.print(" ");
	    }
		if(i%2==0){
	        for(k=0;k<=i;k++){
		        System.out.print("*");
	        }
        }else{
            for(k=0;k<=i;k++){
                System.out.print("-");
            }
        }
		System.out.println("");
	}
	
	for(i=n-1;i>0;i--)
    {
	    for(j=n;j>=i;j--){
            System.out.print(" ");
	    }
	    if(i%2==0){
	        for(k=i;k>0;k--){
		        System.out.print("-");
	        }
	    }else{
	        for(k=i;k>0;k--){
                System.out.print("*");
            }
        }
		System.out.println("");
	}
	
    }
}

        }
		System.out.println("");
	}
	
    }
}
