this is an example code of simple python class that subscribe one topic:

#!/usr/bin/env python
import rospy
import sys
from std_msgs.msg import String

class simple_class:

  def __init__(self):
    self.sub = rospy.Subscriber("chatter",String,self.callback)

  def callback(self,data):

def main(args):
  obc = simple_class()
  rospy.init_node('simple_class', anonymous=True)
  except KeyboardInterrupt:
    print("Shutting down")

if __name__ == '__main__':

Hey I tried something similar, with a callback function defined within the class for the subscriber. But I receive an error for positional arguments. It asks me to have 'self' first and not 'data'. When I make the changes it now says 'data' first and 'self' second. Do you know what this could be?
