Chapter: Python Last Updated: 14-06-2021 12:34:46 UTC

Program:

            /* ............... START ............... */
                
thisdict =	{
  "ID": "1",
  "Name": "John",
  "Age": 32
}
x = thisdict["Name"]
print(x)

x = thisdict["ID"]
print(x)

/*  Output of above program 
John
1
*/

// Another method of accessing item.
x = thisdict.get("Name")
print(x)

/* Below prgram will list keys as list  * / 
thisdict =	{
  "ID": "1",
  "Name": "John",
  "Age": 32
}

x = thisdict.keys()

print(x)

/* Output 
dict_keys(['ID', 'Name', 'Age'])
*/

                /* ............... END ............... */
        

Notes:

  • You can access the items of a dictionary in python by referring to its key name.
  • In square brackets we can pass the key , then it will return value in that place.
  • By using the get function is the another method of retrieving the item from dictionary in python. ( eg : x = thisdict.get("Name"))
  • keys() function in dictionary will give the all the keys as list. Please refer the program section for more details.
