Problem:

Hi all, I am trying to figure out the dictionary related problems in python. Dictionary is really fun to learn and work with. Let’s say, I have a dictionary

dict = {'1': 'one', '3': 'three', '2': 'two', '5': 'five', '4': 'four'}

If I’ve needed to check every value inside the dictionary what can I do for that? So, I want to know how to check if a value is in a dictionary python?

Solution:

You can use either dict.values() or dict.get() you want. The dict.values() function returns a boolean type answer. On the other hand, the .get(key) function returns none if the key is not available in the dictionary.

Let’s check with your given dictionary

>>> dict = {'1': 'one', '3': 'three', '2': 'two', '5': 'five', '4': 'four'}
>>> 'five' in dict.values()
True

 and

>>> dict = {'1': 'one', '3': 'three', '2': 'two', '5': 'five', '4': 'four'}
>>> dict.get('5')
'five'

I guess these sample codes snippet will make you feel understood.
For better understandings check THIS.

Thanks.

Problem: I have the following dictionary in python: d = {'1': 'one', '3': 'three', '2': 'two', '5': 'five', '4': 'four'} I need a way to find if a value such as "one" or "two" exists in this dictionary. For example, if I wanted to know if the index ... : "1" in d And then python would tell me if that is true or false, however I need to do that same exact thing except to find if a value exists.

Problem: I wanted to test if a key exists in a dictionary before updating the value for the key. I wrote the following code: if 'key1' in dict.keys(): print "blah" else: print "boo" I think this is not the best way to accomplish this task. Is there a better way to test for a key in the dictionary?

Problem: I have a dictionary and I would like to get some values from it based on some keys. For example, I have a dictionary for users with their first name, last name, username, address, age and so on. Let's say, I only want to get one value (name) - either last ... if key exists, get value and stop checking. If not, move to next key. (3) username: if key exists, get value or return null/empty
