Which variables declared inside the class definition, but not inside a method are class or static variables in Python.
This is different from C++ and Java, but not so different from C#, where a static member can’t be accessed using a reference to an instance.
When defining some member variable outside any member method, the variable can be either static or non-static depending on how the variable is expressed.
- CLASSNAME.var is static variable
- INSTANCENAME.var is not static variable.
- self.var inside class is not a static variable.
- var inside the class member function is not defined.
Python class static variable example
Simple example code.
class MyClass: i = "Static Variable" print(MyClass.i)
