Python - Access Tuple Items
Access Tuple Items
You can access tuple items by referring to the index number, inside square brackets:
Print the second item in the tuple:
Note: The first item has index 0.
Negative indexing means start from the end.
-1 refers to the last item,
-2 refers to the second last item etc.
Print the last item of the tuple:
Range of Indexes
You can specify a range of indexes by specifying where to start and where to end the range.
When specifying a range, the return value will be a new tuple with the specified items.
Return the third, fourth, and fifth item:
Note: The search will start at index 2 (included) and end at index 5 (not included).
Remember that the first item has index 0.
By leaving out the start value, the range will start at the first item:
This example returns the items from the beginning to, but NOT included, "kiwi":
By leaving out the end value, the range will go on to the end of the tuple:
This example returns the items from "cherry" and to the end:
Range of Negative Indexes
Specify negative indexes if you want to start the search from the end of the tuple:
This example returns the items from index -4 (included) to index -1 (excluded)
Check if Item Exists
To determine if a specified item is present in a tuple use the
Check if "apple" is present in the tuple:
if "apple" in thistuple:
print("Yes, 'apple' is in the fruits tuple")
