How to Return a Class Instance in Python?

Estimated read time 1 min read

To return a class instance in Python, you can define a constructor (__init__() method) in your class, create an instance of the class within a function, and then return that instance. Here’s an example:

class MyClass:
    def __init__(self, attribute):
        self.attribute = attribute

def create_instance():
    instance = MyClass("example")
    return instance

# Call the function to create an instance of MyClass
my_instance = create_instance()

# Access the attributes of the returned instance
print(my_instance.attribute)  # Output: example

In this example, the MyClass class defines a constructor that takes an attribute parameter and assigns it to the instance variable self.attribute.

The create_instance() function creates an instance of MyClass by calling the constructor with the desired attribute value (“example”). The created instance is then returned using the return statement.

When calling create_instance(), the function returns an instance of MyClass, which is assigned to the my_instance variable. You can then access the attributes of the returned instance, such as my_instance.attribute.

Note that the returned instance retains its state and can be accessed and modified even after it has been returned from the function.
