This, self, and Me are keywords used in some computer programming languages to refer to the object, class, or other entity that the currently-running code is part of. The entity referred to by these keywords thus depends on the execution context. Different programming languages use these keywords in slightly different ways. In languages where a keyword like "this" is mandatory, the keyword is the only way to access data and methods stored in the current object. Where optional, they can disambiguate variables and functions with the same name.
