Thank you! This works well.

The class reference did not list this as member hence I never saw this.
(The generalization (forgive me, if I'm wrong with the terminology)
had the method, which I had missed)  :(

Is there any benefit in using this ? I do use them but I discard them
when I get the Cell Instance.

Thank You for your help. I appreciate that you took your time out for
helping me out.
