Calculating geometry using pyscripting: failed to read polygon input feature

Question asked by GoldenJiang on Oct 3, 2016

I'm following an ESRI online learning tutorial: Creating Python Toolboxes Using ArcGIS 10.1.

I copy the script and test on my data but the new tool only recognises 'Street' as an input feature. 

Can anyone tell me where is wrong with the codes below? 

import arcpy

def __init__(self):
"""Define the toolbox (the name of the toolbox is the name of the
.pyt file)."""

self.label = "Calculate Geometry"
self.alias = "geometry"
