Instance Method


Publishes a Boolean value upon receiving an element equal to the argument.


func contains(_ output: Upstream.Output) -> Publishers.Contains<Publishers.Share<Upstream>>
Available when Output conforms to Equatable.



An element to match against.

Return Value

A publisher that emits the Boolean value true when the upstream publisher emits a matching value.


The contains publisher consumes all received elements until the upstream publisher produces a matching element. At that point, it emits true and finishes normally. If the upstream finishes normally without producing a matching element, this publisher emits false, then finishes.
