Python | Pandas TimedeltaIndex.to_native_types()

Python is a great language for doing data analysis, primarily because of the fantastic ecosystem of data-centric python packages. Pandas is one of those packages and makes importing and analyzing data much easier.

Pandas TimedeltaIndex.to_native_types() function format the specified values of self (TimedeltaIndex object) and return the object in its native format.

Syntax : TimedeltaIndex.to_native_types(slicer=None, **kwargs)



Parameters :
slicer : An indexer into self that specifies which values are used in the formatting process.(int, array-like)
kwargs : Options for specifying how the values should be formatted.(dict)

Return : Array object

Example #1: Use TimedeltaIndex.to_native_types() function to format the given TimedeltaIndex object to its native format.
