Hello guys! Welcome back to another section of my tutorial on Python. In this tutorial guide, we are going to be discussing about the Python List index() method.

Python List index() method returns the lowest index in a list that object appears.


The following below is the syntax for Python List index() method -

list.index( obj )

Parameter Details

  • obj - This is the object to be found out.

Return Value

It returns index of the found object, otherwise raises an exception which indicates that the value was not found. 


The following below is a simple example -


aList = [123, 'xyz', 'paul', 'abc'];
print "Index for xyz : ", aList.index( 'xyz' ) 
print "Index for paul : ", aList.index( 'paul' )

Below is the output of the above example -

Index for xyz :  1
Index for paul :  2
