python函数每日一讲 - classmethod(),pythonclassmethod,版本:python2




class C:
    def f(cls, arg1, arg2, ...): ...




Return a class method for function.

A class method receives the class as implicit first argument, just like an instance method receives the instance. To declare a class method, use this idiom:

class C:
    def f(cls, arg1, arg2, ...): ...

The @classmethod form is a function decorator – see the description of function definitions in Function definitions for details.

It can be called either on the class (such as C.f()) or on an instance (such as C().f()). The instance is ignored except for its class. If a class method is called for a derived class, the derived class object is passed as the implied first argument.

Class methods are different than C++ or Java static methods. If you want those, see staticmethod() in this section.

For more information on class methods, consult the documentation on the standard type hierarchy in The standard type hierarchy.

New in version 2.2.

Changed in version 2.4: Function decorator syntax added.


>>> class C:
...     @classmethod
...     def f(self):
...             print "This is a class method"
>>> C.f()
This is a class method
>>> c = C()
>>> c.f()
This is a class method
>>> class D:
...     def f(self):
...             print " This is not a class method "
>>> D.f()
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
TypeError: unbound method f() must be called with D instance as first argument (got nothing instead)
>>> d = D()
>>> d.f()
This is not a class method
