Accessing Attributes and Methods in Python
Attributes of a class are function objects that define corresponding methods of its instances. They are used to implement access controls of the classes.
Attributes of a class can also be accessed using the following built-in methods and functions :
- getattr() – This function is used to access the attribute of object.
- hasattr() – This function is used to check if an attribute exist or not.
- setattr() – This function is used to set an attribute. If the attribute does not exist, then it would be created.
- delattr() – This function is used to delete an attribute. If you are accessing the attribute after deleting it raises error “class has no attribute”.
The following methods are explained with the example given below :
