How to bypass a method in Python..?

Postby 9491731751 » Tue Sep 24, 2013 5:27 am

Here is the scenario.

I have a class(X) having method(xyz)

I have to define a class(Y) which extends class(X) but should run method(pqr) instead of method(xyz)

Here is the example :

Code: Select all
class X():
    def method(self):

class Y(X):
    def method(self):
        -----Actually, my requirement is to call "Y.method()" whenever "X.method()" is called and I can't do modifications in 'Class X' but I can modify 'Class Y'.

Could anyone please clarify this.

I don't believe what you want is possible in Python, and for good reason. If you can explain why you want this though, we can probably tell you a better way to do it.
