What is a Class? How do you create it in Python?

  1. Re: Class in Python?

    A class is a template of code and collection of objects that has same set of attributes and behaviour. To create a class use the keyword class followed by class name beginning with an uppercase letter. 

    A company belongs to class called company class and can have the attributes say first-name and last-name and behaviour methods say showFullName(). 

    Ex :

    class Person(): 
    def inputName(self,fname,lname): self.fname=fname self.lastname=lastname
    def showFullName() (self):
    print(self.fname+" "+self.lname)person1 = Person() #object instantiation person1.inputName
    ("Mindstick","Software") #calling a method inputName person1. showFullName() #calling a method

    you can define a method inside a class the first argument to the method must be self where self – is a pointer to the class instance. self must be passed as an argument to the method, though the method does not take any arguments.
