Module: SequencescapeExcel::SubclassChecker::ClassMethods

Defined in:
app/sequencescape_excel/sequencescape_excel/subclass_checker.rb

Overview

Adds a method to a superclass which can be called in each subclass to check whether it is an object of that class each class must implement the type method. The type method is not part of the module as it can be used by AR objects. The modual option allows namespacing. Example:

modual = My::Namespace
klass = My::Namespace::MySubclass1

Example:

def MyClass
 subclasses? :my_subclass_1, :my_subclass_2, :my_subclass_3
end
my_subclass_1 = MySubclass1.new
my_subclass_1.my_subclass_1? => true
my_subclass_1.my_subclass_2? => false
