Yes, well, I caught that part. Thing is, I copied these two lines
from the complex sample code:
And the appropriate declarations for those to work (as far as I know
anyway) and neither one is functioning. That's why I asked in here.
Both seem to fit that criteria mentioned earlier. I'm probably
missing something, but, I'm afraid I don't know what it is. If it
were as simple as just looking in the manual and automatically
understanding I wouldn't be asking here, and I still hesitated as it
