In Go structure, the working of promoted methods is just like Promoted Fields. We use this concept in the nested structure where a structure is a field in another structure, simply by just adding the name of the structure into another structure and it behaves like the Anonymous Field to the nested structure. And the methods of that structure (other than nested structure) are the part of the nested structure, such type of methods are known as Promoted Methods. Or in other words, prompted methods are those methods which are implemented by the child structure, and is accessible by the parent structure.
- If the child and the parent structure contain a method that has the same name but different type of receiver, then both the methods are available in the parent structure as shown in Example 2. Here both child and parent structure contain methods of the same names.
- If child structure contains two methods with the same name and same receiver, then these methods are not promoted in the parent structure and if you try to do, then the compiler will give an error.
