Here is the code


class method


    int counter = 0;

    public static void main(String[] args)





It gave me this error. error: non-static variable counter cannot be referenced from a static context


How do I make it recognize the variables of the class?



The solution is that you either make your fields static or your methods non static. It would look like below:

class Programm {

    public static void main(String[] args) {

        Programm programm = new Programm();



    public void start() {

        // can now access non-static fields
