Cannot access List

I want to access a list from another class so as to update it in a periodic time interval. The new class where I want to access this list is also in the same package. How can I do that ?


All's well that Debugs well .

The same way you would access it anywhere else. But if the List is a private member of another class, and it doesn’t have public getList() or addToList(...) methods, etc., then maybe you ought not to try.

Hi ,

But I have declared them as public but I still seem to be able to access them .
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link:
