Hi, Is there a way to access values in a dictionaries other than using the key? suppose: dict{'a'=1,'b'=2, 'c'=3} key = 'a' is it possible to access 'a' in the dictionary using dict[key] ?

    I don't think so.. thats how they work - instead of being ordered the key points to the value so that's the only way to get the value. d = {"a":1, "b":2} d[a] gives you 1 and d[b] gives you 2 Is that what you were asking?

    Sorry, I see what you are asking now, I tried it and it worked. d = {"A":1, "B":2} kiy = "B" d[kiy] gets you 2
