Thanks guys for this, glad it was so simple.


I used mikes solution in the end, and it worked a charm.


Thanks again,

Hello Guys,


I'm Looking to build a quick if/else statement that checks a dictionary for
a key like follows.


If myDict contains ThisKey:

                Do this...


                Do that...


Thats the best way of doing this?

if ThisKey in myDict:

  pass # do this


  pass # do that
