This example uses a Search Cursor from the Data Access (da) module of ArcPy.
Do not confuse arcpy.da.SearchCursor syntax with the earlier and slower arcpy.SearchCursor().
The Data Access module (arcpy.da) has only been available since ArcGIS 10.1 for Desktop.
To print a test field (TestField) from a test feature class (TestFC) in a test file geodatabase (Test.gdb) located in a temporary folder (C:\Temp):
with arcpy.da.SearchCursor(r"C:\Temp\Test.gdb\TestFC",["TestField"]) as cursor: for row in cursor: print row
def createDissolvedGDB(workspace, gdbName): gdb_name = workspace + "/" + gdbName + ".gdb" if(arcpy.Exists(gdb_name): arcpy.Delete_management(gdb_name) arcpy.CreateFileGDB_management(workspace, gdbName, "") else: arcpy.CreateFileGDB_management(workspace, gdbName, "") return gdb_name
