Python | Pandas Series.to_string()

Pandas series is a One-dimensional ndarray with axis labels. The labels need not be unique but must be a hashable type. The object supports both integer- and label-based indexing and provides a host of methods for performing operations involving the index.

Pandas Series.to_string() function render a string representation of the Series.

Syntax: Series.to_string(buf=None, na_rep=’NaN’, float_format=None, header=True, index=True, length=False, dtype=False, name=False, max_rows=None)

Parameter :
buf : buffer to write to
na_rep : string representation of NAN to use, default ‘NaN’
float_format : formatter function to apply to columns’ elements if they are floats default None
header : Add the Series header (index name)
index : Add index (row) labels, default True
length : Add the Series length
dtype : Add the Series dtype
name : Add the Series name if not None
max_rows : Maximum number of rows to show before truncating.

Returns : Formatted string.

# Create the Datetime Index
didx = pd.DatetimeIndex(start ='2014-08-01 10:00', freq ='W'
                     periods = 6, tz = 'Europe/Berlin'
  
# set the index
sr.index = didx
  
# Print the series
print(sr)
