multithreading and static of wdDoModifyView in a view controller

wdDoModifyView javadoc recommends to use a static variable of view controller (VC) to pass/publish a references of UI elements to event handlers of VC.

it means then that different instances of VC serving different users share same static variable... i see here a problem, do not you?

    Hi P.P,

    Please read the commented statements before the wdDoModify() method.

    <b>* It is made static to discourage a way of programming that routinely stores references to UI elements in instance fields for access by the view controller's event handlers, and so on.</b>

    As the statement says, you are very much discouraged to pass references from & to wdDoModify() method. This is my understanding of the statement.

    Best Regards,

    Nibu.
