You will not always find what you're looking for
without utilizing the tools available (for example,
the Search function of the object browser).
Open the object browser, and in the search box

Paul, thanks for pointing out the object browser, I hadn't understood that.
I'm sure I'll use it a lot. But I fear that "intuitive" is in the eye of

baffling. I should have learned this stuff before writing 1800 lines of an
AutoCAD-based program in VB.NET, but I seem to learn more when I'm doing.

The nice thing is the Libraries are named intuitively in most cases.
