Hi everyone,

I am doing a custom document in which i am always getting an error at the point when i want to use the java HTMLReader class. The compiler says something about an enclosing instance and i really have no idea what the compiler means.

Here is the code

This is exactly what the compiler says

I do not seem to know what the compiler means about my error on using the java HTMLReader class.

I hope someone can help me with this error

Thank You

Yours Sincerely

It means you can't use an HTMLReader without an HTMLDocument. Given that you've got an HTMLDocument in the variable "document", the syntax would be

HTMLDocument.HTMLReader reader = HTMLDocument.HTMLReader(...)
