Iterate over Elements of Set in Python

Iterate over Elements of Set

To iterate over the elements of a Set in Python, we can use For loop statement. For Loop statement can be used to loop over the elements of given iterator object, which is a Set object in this case.

A simple code snippet to iterate over elements of a set x is

for element in x:
    #do something

Example

In the following program, we take a set x with fruit names, iterate over the elements of this set using For Loop, and print the element inside the For Loop.

Python Program

x = {"apple", "banana", "cherry"}
for element in x:
    print(element)
Run

Output

cherry
apple
banana

Summary

In this tutorial of Python Examples, we learned how to check if given element is present in the set or not using Python-in keyword.
