In brief: Yes

X-rays will certainly demonstrate a finger dislocation, acute or chronic, very clearly.

Unless it was previously reduced in which case the diagnosis will be based on a careful history and exam and especially if there is any residual joint laxity or instability

In brief: If still dislocated?

If still dislocated, yes.
If it was promptly reduced and there was no fracture, there may be little or no findings on x-ray.
