Hey i have read Somewhere...

"The rule is, a static method of a classs can't access a nonstatic(instance) method or varaible of its own"

Does it mean that that staic mathod can access nonstatic(instance) method or variable of other...

One more Doubt:

i can declare nonstatic variable in static method an I right?

hi Jay,

Statement is correct. Static method can't access non static member
variables, because inside static method there is no "this" reference

Did you try that?


method or variable of other...


Other means, is that practically tried by you.

And you can't create static or "non-static" (probably better called "instance") variables in a static method; you can only create local variables.
