Interesting ... creating a class and then within that class creating members of that class ... like a recursive call.

Almost like one.

Many programmers also forget that a class can use its own properties. Often people use a backing variable and property procedures to access it. Then inside the class they directly access the backing variable. Usually it's better to use the property procedures so you get all of their advantages, such as value checking and the ability to set breakpoints in there.

You can even create a class inside another class. In that case, you can ,make the inner class private so only the outer class can use it.

There are all kinds of odd things you can do with classes

I started to solve the exercise differently, but it seemed cumbersome. I had to look at your solution for a few minutes to see what it was doing. I found it quite intriguing. Thank you for using that particular solution. It opens an avenue I had not considered yet.
