 Find ? in string
I've been looking for a while and can't find a simple way to do this.

So, what is the quickest, simplest way to check if a string contains a ?

I don't care where it is, I just need to know if there is one.

Many thanks.

Feel like you're not getting the answers you want? Checkout the help/rules for things like what to include/not include in a post, how to use code tags, how to ask smart questions, and more.

Pro-tip - there's an inverse correlation between the number of lines of code posted and my enthusiasm for helping with a question :)
Hmm, can't make that work.

if '?" in mystring:
  print "Found"
  print "Not found"
Not found

Please post all code, output and errors (it it's entirety) between their respective tags. Refer to BBCode help topic on how to post. Use the "Preview Post" button to make sure the code is presented as you expect before hitting the "Post Reply/Thread" button.

I fixed for you this time. Please use code tags on future posts.

what is the value of mystring?

for my_string in ['spam', 'eggs?']:
    print('{} --> {}'.format(my_string, '?' in my_string))
spam --> False eggs? --> True
Nobody can debug your code without the actual faulty code. We don't read in a crystal ball.

Also, the code you show cannot run because you mix single and double quotes

if '?" in mystring: ^ SyntaxError: EOL while scanning string literal
