Python Dictionary - items() Method



The Python items() method is used to display all key-value pair present in the dictionary. It displays key-value in a list with each pair in a tuple. If the dictionary is modified, the display object also gets updated. Please see example for more details.

dictionary.items()

No parameter is required.

Return Value

Example:

In the example below, the items() method is used to display all key-value pairs in the given dictionary.

Info = {
  'name': 'John',
  'age': 25
}
#display a list of tuple containing all key-value pairs.
x =  Info.items() 
print(x)

#Adding a new field, display object also gets changed. 
Info['city'] = 'London'
print(x)

The output of the above code will be:

dict_items([('name', 'John'), ('age', 25)])
dict_items([('name', 'John'), ('age', 25), ('city', 'London')])
