hey guys I’m currently learning oop but I’m having a bit of trouble with accessing values which I create or add to a object, currently I can’t work out how to get the value stored within getAge
from datetime import date class Person: def __init__(self, name, dob, cob): self.name = name self.dob = dob self.cob = cob def setName(self, name): self.name = name def getAge(self): today = date.today() birthYear = int(self.dob[6:]) + 2000 age = today.year - birthYear return age p1 = Person('Jane', '22/06/02', 'England') p1.setName("Joe") print(p1.name) print(Person.getAge)
I don’t understand why you print
Person.getAge, it’s a method of
getAge is a method and not static not, so you need use
p1.getAge() istead of
Person.getAge to get the
The method getAge only makes sense when using it on an instance of the Person ss. In your case
print(p1.getAge()) to activate the method.
You could also add the
@propery decorator above the method to avoid the parentheses as the method doesn’t require any arguments.
