    • Well..Thanks Atanu 😊

      I just figured Out another way. As the createContent(oController) of the view gets called first, we can have this.controller = oController inside createContent(oController)

      onBeforeShow(evt) {

      alert(this.controller); //Here we can access this


      createContent(oController) {

      this.controller = oController;
