I was learning about the static class and static method.Then i came across the following line:
Only one copy of static member exists regardless of any no of instance of a class.
what does it actually mean?
It is in the msdn document http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/79b3xss3.aspx achfcssswwws follows:
A non-static class can contain static methods, fields, properties, or events. The static member is callable on a class even when no instance of the class has been created. The static member is always accessed by the class name, not the instance name. Only one copy of a static member exists, regardless of how many instances of the class are created. Static methods and properties cannot access non-static fields and events in their containing type, and they cannot access an instance variable of any object unless it is explicitly passed in a method parameter.
