Hi

I tried out the following code :



The result is 21. My question is how can class Gazer access a static variable? I mean we are trying to access a static member of the outer class from a non static context. So it should throw an exception right?

There's never anything wrong with accessing a static member from a non-static context.

Ohhh.. Ok.. So the problem is when we try to access a non static member from a static context. Correct Paul? That will upset the compiler right?
