    Namespaces

    Hi,

    I have a namespace containing many classes. I would like to access the classes dependent upon a user input variable. So for a namespace called foo, is there a way I can access it's classes with a variable? For example,

    foo.(variable)?

    I have tried having a variable string and trying foo.string but it doesn't work. Any suggestions?

    Thanks.

    I'm certain you can do this using reflection. I'm also certain that there is a better class design for what you've described.
    If I did your homework for you, then you might pass your class without learning how to write a program like this. Then you might graduate and get your degree without learning how to write a program like this. You might become a professional programmer without knowing how to write a program like this. Someday you might work on a project with me without knowing how to write a program like this. Then I would have to do you serious bodily harm. - Jack Klein

    Why would namespace access be based on user input?

    Sorry...I was talking complete rubbish. I was referring to method access through classes. Have done what I needed to now.
