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] ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Sorry, 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
