How to define a type hint to a argument (the argument's value is a class, all expected value is a subclass of a certain

will be helpful for those in need If you are trying to say that arg must be an instance of either MyClass or some subtype of MyClass, just do this:
class MyClass(object): pass
class Child(MyClass): pass

def my_function(arg: MyClass) -> None:

my_function(MyClass())  # Type checks
my_function(Child())    # Type checks
my_function(3.14)       # Does not type check
from typing import Type

# ...snip...

def my_function_2(arg: Type[MyClass]) -> None:

my_function_2(MyClass)    # Type checks
my_function_2(Child)      # Type checks
my_function_2(int)        # Does not type check
my_function_2(MyClass())  # Does not type check

Define generic Type of parent class method depending on subclass Type in Java

Hope that helps Is it possible to dynamically identify T as a return type depending on subclass Type? I want something like the following: , You want this:
public class Parent<T extends Parent<T>> {
    public T foo() {
        return (T)this;

public class Child extends Parent<Child> {
    public void childMethod() {
        System.out.println("childMethod called");

Child child = new Child();
child.foo().childMethod(); // compiles

PFObject subclass gets "Cannot convert value of type 'Match' to expected argument type '@noescape (AnyObject) throw

I wish this help you Found the solution. It turns out that the objects method on the PFQueryTableViewController returns [AnyObject], so I need to cast it to [Match]
let objects = self?.matchesController.objects as! [PFObject]
 @abstract The array of instances of <PFObject> that is used as a data source.
public var objects: [AnyObject]? { get }

Type hint for argument of type A in method of class A

this one helps. I'm trying to make use of type hints in Python 3.5.1 with following code: , Try this:
class A:

    def a(self, i: int, b: 'A'):

Using the class as a type hint for arguments in its methods

it should still fix some issue Because when it encounters Translate (while compiling the class body), Vector2 hasn't been defined yet (it is currently compiling, name binding hasn't been performed); Python naturally complains.
Since this is such a common scenario (type-hinting a class in the body of that class), you should use a forward reference to it by enclosing it in quotes:
class Vector2:    
    # __init__ as defined

    def Translate(self, pos: 'Vector2'):    
        self.x += pos.x
        self.y += pos.y
from typing import get_type_hints

{'pos': __main__.Vector2}

Is it possible to type hint exclusively a class object but exclude subclass objects?

hope this fix your issue No, this is not possible to do.
Fundamentally, the Python typing ecosystem assumes that you are following the Liskov substitution principle -- assumes that it is always safe to substitute a subclass in places designed to handle the parent.
from typing import final
# If you want to support Python 3.7 or earlier, pip-install 'typing_extensions'
# and do 'from typing_extensions import final' instead

class A: pass

class B(A): pass
