Glad I could help.

It also helps to just start trying things. Just plug in different values to the methods and properties you suspect might have something to do with what you are trying to do. You'll get lucky sometimes and figure it out. That, and hit the MSDN libraries. They usually are worthless but you can get some hints of what to google for there.

Sometimes class methods and object hierarchies don't make much sense because the people who design them are too smart for their own good (a.k.a. have no common sense).

I often wonder who really is more clever: the people who write the .net framework, or the poor saps who have to pour through the piss poor MSDN library docs to figure out how their crap works. I'm only half way serious. I'll take .net anyday over coding in classic asp. But sometimes I wonder...
