Hello!

I have a variable like this:

Server srv = new Server(5154);

I want this srv variable to be accessible from all methods of my class...
Server is another class...

I'm on another class using Server class...

I want to use this srv variable for example in method JButton1 Click and on JButton2 Click.

Thanks

Just make it an instance variable of your class. It will be visible from every method

public class MyClass
{
   public static Server srv = new Server(5154);

   .....




You can then access it using:

Server srv = MyClass.srv;

Look.

Assume I have 2 methods Button1 Clicked and Button2 Clicked.

When I press Button1 the variable gets initilized.

And I want to initilaize it in a way that I can call it from Button2.

the other way twould be to make it a member var or your class, and have both listeners as inner classes of that class

public class MyClass
{
   public Server srv;

   .....

   button1.addActionListener(new ActionListener() {
      public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e) {
         srv = new Server(5154);
         ...
      }});

   button2.addActionListener(new ActionListener() {
      public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e) {
         srv.doSomething();
         ...
      }});

I get error on this line:
srv = new Server(5154);
non-static variable srv cannot be referenced from a static context

If you're calling it from a static method then you'll need to make it static as i showed in my first post
