[IPython-User] Tab completion doesn't work on class/instance where __getattr__ has been overridden
Tue Mar 1 13:58:54 CST 2011
I have a class (subclassed from list) where I have overwridden the
__getattr__ method as:
def __getattr__(self, name):
if name.startswith("__"): raise AttributeError
def _multiplexed(*args, **kwargs):
return [getattr(R, name)(*args, **kwargs) for R in self]
Now when I try to use tab completion, iPython just beeps at me and
doesn't complete anything. If I remove this method from my class, I
can do tab completion.
Does the tab completion use __getattr__ somewhere? Can I add
something to my definition to make tab completion work in iPython?
