TypeError: required_slots() takes 1 positional argument but 2 were given

My Custom FormAction:

`class ExplorazorForm(FormAction):

     def name(self):
          return 'explorazor_form'

     def required_slots(tracker):
	"""A list of required slots that the form has to fill"""
	if tracker.latest_message['intent'].get('name') == "get_email":
		return ['email', 'target_col', 'dimension']
	else:
		return ['target_col', 'dimension']

     def submit(self, dispatcher: CollectingDispatcher, tracker: Tracker, domain: Dict[Text, Any]) -> List[Dict]:
	"""Define what the form has to do after all required slots are filled"""
	# utter submit template
	dispatcher.utter_template("utter_submit", tracker)
	return []

`

Please help me out here.

Hi @nikhilcss97! Can you show me what your stories look like?

I typed the last story myself

Hey @nikhilcss97, try adding @static_method above your required slots like so:

@static_method
def required_slots(tracker):
	"""A list of required slots that the form has to fill"""
	if tracker.latest_message['intent'].get('name') == "get_email":
		return ['email', 'target_col', 'dimension']
	else:
		return ['target_col', 'dimension']

Thanks a lot @erohmensing adding @staticmethod worked. The interpreter was expecting a “self” as a parameter hence was giving me the error “2 parameters…”.

Yep, you’re right about it expecting self! Glad that fixed your problem. :slight_smile:
