Instance Method Detail

def <(other : TypeNode) : BoolLiteral #

Returns true if other is an ancestor of self.


[View source]
def <=(other : TypeNode) : BoolLiteral #

Returns true if self is the same as other or if other is an ancestor of self.


[View source]
def >(other : TypeNode) : BoolLiteral #

Returns true if self is an ancestor of other.


[View source]
def >=(other : TypeNode) : BoolLiteral #

Returns true if other is the same as self or if self is an ancestor of other.


[View source]
def [](key : SymbolLiteral | MacroId) : TypeNode | NilLiteral #

Returns the type for the given key in this named tuple type. Gives a compile error if this is not a named tuple type.


[View source]
def abstract? : BoolLiteral #

Returns true if this type is abstract.


[View source]
def all_subclasses : Crystal::Macros::ArrayLiteral(TypeNode) #

Returns all subclasses of this type.


[View source]

Returns all ancestors of this type.


[View source]
def class : TypeNode #

Returns the class of this type. With this you can, for example, obtain class methods by invoking type.class.methods.


[View source]
def constant(name : StringLiteral | SymbolLiteral | MacroId) : ASTNode #

Returns a constant defined in this type.

If the constant is a constant (like A = 1), then its value as an ASTNode is returned. If the constant is a type, the type is returned as a TypeNode. Otherwise, NilLiteral is returned.


[View source]

Returns the constants and types defined by this type.


[View source]
def has_attribute?(name : StringLiteral | SymbolLiteral) : BoolLiteral #

Returns true if this type has an attribute. For example @[Flags] or @[Packed] (the name you pass to this method is "Flags" or "Packed" in these cases).


[View source]
def has_constant?(name : StringLiteral | SymbolLiteral) : BoolLiteral #

Returns true if this type has a constant. For example DEFAULT_OPTIONS (the name you pass to this method is "DEFAULT_OPTIONS" or :DEFAULT_OPTIONS in this cases).


[View source]
def has_method?(name : StringLiteral | SymbolLiteral) : BoolLiteral #

Returns true if this type has a method. For example default_options (the name you pass to this method is "default_options" or :default_options in this cases).


[View source]
def instance : TypeNode #

Returns the instance type of this type, if it's a class type, or self otherwise. This is the opposite of #class.


[View source]
def instance_vars : Crystal::Macros::ArrayLiteral(MetaVar) #

Returns the instance variables of this type.


[View source]

Returns the keys in this named tuple type. Gives a compile error if this is not a named tuple type.


[View source]

Returns the instance methods defined by this type, without including inherited methods.


[View source]
def name : MacroId #

Returns the fully qualified name of this type.


[View source]
def overrides?(type : TypeNode, method : StringLiteral | SymbolLiteral | MacroId) : Bool #

Determines if self overrides any method named method from type type.

class Foo
  def one
    1
  end

  def two
    2
  end
end

class Bar < Foo
  def one
    11
  end
end

{{ Bar.overrides?(Foo, "one") }} # => true
{{ Bar.overrides?(Foo, "two") }} # => false

[View source]
def size : NumberLiteral #

Returns the number of elements in this tuple type or tuple metaclass type. Gives a compile error if this is not one of those types.


[View source]

Returns the direct subclasses of this type.


[View source]
def superclass : TypeNode | NilLiteral #

Returns the direct superclass of this type.


[View source]

Returns the type variables of the generic type. If the type is not generic, an empty array is returned.


[View source]
def union? : BoolLiteral #

Returns true if this type is a union type, false otherwise.

See also: #union_types.


[View source]

Returns the types comforming a union type, if this is a union type. Gives a compile error otherwise.

See also: #union?.
