Please, just copy *exactly* what you've done, and the exact error message.
The above implies you got the syntax slightly wrong but without code and
without the exact stack trace we must guess.
That said, my spidey sense tells me you want to declare a classmethod. You
do it like this:
#define a class Foo and define a class method in it:
@classmethod #decorator to indicate this is a class method
def class_method(self): #for class methods, self refers to class itself
print "This is a classmethod called from class", self
#call the class method:
Aside, @staticmethod is simpler, it is basically is a way to declare a pure
function (not bound to an object instance or a class as such, e.g. it
doesn't receive a "self" parameter) as part of a class.
