# networkx.Graph.has_edge¶

Graph.has_edge(u, v)[source]

Returns True if the edge (u, v) is in the graph.

This is the same as v in G[u] without KeyError exceptions.

Parameters

u, v (nodes) – Nodes can be, for example, strings or numbers. Nodes must be hashable (and not None) Python objects.

Returns

edge_ind – True if edge is in the graph, False otherwise.

Return type

bool

Examples

>>> G = nx.path_graph(4)  # or DiGraph, MultiGraph, MultiDiGraph, etc
>>> G.has_edge(0, 1)  # using two nodes
True
>>> e = (0, 1)
>>> G.has_edge(*e)  #  e is a 2-tuple (u, v)
True
>>> e = (0, 1, {'weight':7})
>>> G.has_edge(*e[:2])  # e is a 3-tuple (u, v, data_dictionary)
True


The following syntax are equivalent:

>>> G.has_edge(0, 1)
True
>>> 1 in G[0]  # though this gives KeyError if 0 not in G
True
