Print a list in Python using for loop

In this article, we will discuss different ways to print list items using a for-loop in Python.

Method 1: Print list items one by one

We can iterate over list using a for loop, and in operator. During iteration, we will print each element of list in a separate line. Let’s see an example,

listOfStrs = ['Hello', 'this', 'is', 'a', 'correct', 'way', 'to', 'code']

# Iterate over all elements in list,
# and print them one by one
for elem in listOfStrs:
    print(elem)

Output:

Hello
this
is
a
correct
way
to
code

We printed each item of list in a separate line.

Method 2: Print list items with index positions

We can pass our list object to the enumerate() function. It yields a collection of pairs. Where, each pair contains an item from list, along with its index position. We can iterate over these pairs, and print each item of list with its index position in the list. Let’s see an example,

listOfStrs = ['Hello', 'this', 'is', 'a', 'correct', 'way', 'to', 'code']

# Iterate over all elements of list
# along with thier index position, and
# print each item with index
for index, value in enumerate(listOfStrs):
    print(index, " :: ", value)

Output:

0  ::  Hello
1  ::  this
2  ::  is
3  ::  a
4  ::  correct
5  ::  way
6  ::  to
7  ::  code

We printed each item of list with its index position.

Method 3: print list items based on condition

In this example, we will iterate over all elements of list, using a for loop. But we will print only those items, which statisfies a given condition. For example, we will print only those strings in list, which contains more than three characters.

listOfStrs = ['Hello', 'this', 'is', 'a', 'correct', 'way', 'to', 'code']

# iterate over all the strings in list, 
# and print only those strings which 
# have more than 3 characters
for elem in listOfStrs:
    if len(elem) > 3:
        print(elem)

Output:

Hello
this
correct
code

We printed only selected strings from the list i.e. strings with size for than three.

Summary

We learned about different ways to print list items in python. We convered ways to print list elements with index position, and also based on conditions. Thanks.
