So you thought you would get us to waste our time on your problem ?

Two or three hours spent thinking and reading documentation solves most programming problems.

Most people try to help here and the way you formulated your question can be interpreted differently as you meant it to be. Note the sender chooses words to reflect his intention and the receiver interprets the words to extract the intention, so at least 2 places wher it can go wrong. Thereby given the fact that text only differs a ziliion miles from face to face contact, choosing the right words can help a lot to get better and more helpful answers.

Furthermore helping people is not always give them a fish, learning them to make a fishing rod is far more helpful in the end.

Finally, many people ask us to do their homework for them and get "p***ed" if we don't. Then the law of conservation of misery starts to work and more and more people trying to help get p.... (think you get the point). Personally when I feel that my reactions grow stronger, I stop on the forum (or whatever the source of irritation) and do something I like more to ease my mind.

That said, glad your problem is solved.

Not much chance of getting any help from you as you apparently don't even have time for your own stuff.

And yes, I copy pasted this from another area of the site. I was told to come here and the title + description works well.

We're a lot more into helping people who are putting in some effort on their own.  We don't much like the ones who just drop in and say, "I'm too lazy to do any learning myself, figure this out for me and tell me how to do it."   That just isn't looked upon very favorably.  Hopefully you can understand why.  We don't work for you.  We don't mind helping out.  But don't act like we owe you anything.
