I have a function which returns a 2-tuple. One of the elements of the tuple is an ‘instance’ of a custom type.
For this type I have overloaded the show function.
But when I run the function which returns a tuple, it falls back to the ‘default show’
Can someone help me with this?
See my MWE
mutable struct Mine x::Int64 secret::Int64 end m=Mine(2,3) m #->ouput is Mine(2,3) as expected function Base.show(io::IO, t::MIME"text/plain",x::Mine) #this is be my custom show function println(io,x.x) end m # terminal shows 2 #I successfully modified show, as intended #a meaningless function function do_something(x::Mine) y=deepcopy(x) return "some string",y end a=do_something(m) #here a is printed as ("some string", Mine(2, 3)) #I want it to be printed as ("some string", 2) #I tried to look at these, but could not solve my problem #@which show(m) #@which show(("asd",m))
