Python Dictionary items() method
  • Difficulty Level : Easy
  • Last Updated : 04 Dec, 2020

Dictionary in Python is an unordered collection of data values, used to store data values like a map, which unlike other Data Types that hold only single value as an element, Dictionary holds key : value pair.
In Python Dictionary, items() method is used to return the list with all dictionary keys with values.
 

Syntax: dictionary.items()
Parameters: This method takes no parameters.
Returns: A view object that displays a list of a given dictionary’s (key, value) tuple pair.

Example #1: 
 

Python3




# Python program to show working
# of items() method in Dictionary
  
# Dictionary with three items 
Dictionary1 = { 'A': 'Geeks', 'B': 4, 'C': 'Geeks' }
  
print("Dictionary items:")
  
# Printing all the items of the Dictionary
print(Dictionary1.items())

Output: 
 

Dictionary items:
dict_items([('A', 'Geeks'), ('B', 4), ('C', 'Geeks')])

Order of these items in the list may not always be same. 
  
Example #2: To show working of items() after modification of Dictionary. 
 



Python3




# Python program to show working
# of items() method in Dictionary
  
# Dictionary with three items 
Dictionary1 = { 'A': 'Geeks', 'B': 4, 'C': 'Geeks' }
  
print("Original Dictionary items:")
  
items = Dictionary1.items()
  
# Printing all the items of the Dictionary
print(items)
  
# Delete an item from dictionary
del[Dictionary1['C']]
print('Updated Dictionary:')
print(items)

Output: 
 

Original Dictionary items:
dict_items([('A', 'Geeks'), ('C', 'Geeks'), ('B', 4)])
Updated Dictionary:
dict_items([('A', 'Geeks'), ('B', 4)])

If the Dictionary is updated anytime, the changes are reflected in the view object automatically.
