pandas.MultiIndex.get_loc

MultiIndex.get_loc(self, key, method=None)[source]

Get location for a label or a tuple of labels as an integer, slice or boolean mask.

Parameters
keylabel or tuple of labels (one for each level)
methodNone
Returns
locint, slice object or boolean mask

If the key is past the lexsort depth, the return may be a boolean mask array, otherwise it is always a slice or int.

Notes

The key cannot be a slice, list of same-level labels, a boolean mask, or a sequence of such. If you want to use those, use MultiIndex.get_locs() instead.

>>> mi = pd.MultiIndex.from_arrays([list('abb'), list('def')])
