    Default recurring counter inside a method

    I'm looking for a way to get a method to keep track of how many times it's been called. Hopefully this is the right forum.

    You could use an instance variable:

    private int fooCalled;
     
    public void foo() {
        fooCalled++;
        // more stuff here
    }
