Python – Unpacking Values in Strings

  • Last Updated : 29 Aug, 2020

Given a dictionary, unpack its values into a string.

Input : test_str = “First value is {} Second is {}”, test_dict = {3 : “Gfg”, 9 : “Best”}
Output : First value is Gfg Second is Best
Explanation : After substitution, we get Gfg and Best as values.

Input : test_str = “First value is {} Second is {}”, test_dict = {3 : “G”, 9 : “f”}
Output : First value is G Second is f.
Explanation : After substitution, we get G and f as values.

Method : Using format() +  * operator + values()

The combination of above functions can be used to solve this problem. In this, we use format to map required value with braces in string. The * operator is used to unpack and assign. The values are extracted using values().



Python3




# Python3 code to demonstrate working of 
# Unpacking Integer Keys in Strings
# Using format() + * operator + values()
  
# initializing string
test_str = "First value is {} Second is {} Third {}"
  
# printing original string
print("The original string is : " + str(test_str))
  
# initializing dictionary 
test_dict = {3 : "Gfg", 4 : "is", 9 : "Best"}
  
# using format() for mapping required values 
res = test_str.format(*test_dict.values())
      
# printing result 
print("String after unpacking dictionary : " + str(res)) 
Output
The original string is : First value is {} Second is {} Third {}
String after unpacking dictionary : First value is Gfg Second is is Third Best
