    The error message is quite specific, you can't use the keyword 'this' in a static context.

    Again, the error message is quite specific and helpful. You should know how to call a method correctly by now, especially after being reminded what's wrong.

    How is this thread (and your other new one) different than the "Drag and Drop" thread you've been working with Norm for a week or so?

    No, I think he was so kind enough.
    Your error is really basic and the compiler has told you what it's and also how to fix.
