What is keys() method in dictionary | How to use the keys() method of the dictionary.


Similar to the items() method, this method also returns a view object, this time the view object contains the keys of the dictionary inside list. Also, this view object is directly connected to the original dictionary, meaning any changes in the original dictionary will be reflected here.


X = dictionary.keys()

This method takes no argument.




Code is here you can copy.

dictionary = {1: ‘Student’,
‘Name’: ‘Waqar Khan’,
‘Age’: 23,
‘Male’: True,
‘Subjects’: ‘Computers’}

x = dictionary.keys()
dictionary[‘University’] = ‘MU’
