The .isspace() string method takes in a string and returns True if the entire string is composed of whitespace characters, otherwise False.

Whitespace characters include:

  • Space (‘ ‘)
  • Horizontal tab (‘\t’)
  • Newline (‘\n’)
  • Vertical tab (‘\v’)

Syntax

some_str.isspace()

some_str is the string being checked for whitespace.

Example

The example below uses .isspace() to evaluate the string txt:

txt = " Welcome "
x = txt.isspace()
print(x)

The output will look like this:
