Deprecated: The function has unclear behavior when searching for NaN or zero values and will be removed soon. Use 'any { it == element }' instead to continue using this behavior, or '.asList().contains(element: T)' to get the same search behavior as in a list.

operator fun <K, V> Map<out K, V>.contains(key: K): Boolean

Checks if the map contains the given key.

This method allows to use the x in map syntax for checking whether an object is contained in the map.

import kotlin.test.*
import java.util.*

fun main(args: Array<String>) {
//sampleStart
val map: Map<String, Int> = mapOf("x" to 1)

println("map.contains("x") is ${map.contains("x")}") // true
println(""x" in map is ${"x" in map}") // true

println("map.contains("y") is ${map.contains("y")}") // false
println(""y" in map is ${"y" in map}") // false
//sampleEnd
}
