Java – Keyword for the outer class from an anonymous inner class


In the following snippet:

public class a {
    public void otherMethod(){}
    public void doStuff(String str, InnerClass b){}
    public void method(a){
            new InnerClass(){
                public void innerMethod(){

Is there a keyword to refer to the outer class from the inner class? Basically what I want to do is outer.otherMethod(), or something of the like, but can't seem to find anything.

Best Solution

In general you use OuterClassName.this to refer to the enclosing instance of the outer class.

In your example that would be a.this.otherMethod()
