Wow, wonderfull, it really works like a charm, i still don't understand 
what out and ref means, i'm really n00b in c# so it was a bit tricky, 
but now everything seems to work perfectly

Thank you very much for the help.

PS: there are so many things i would like to ask you about gtk# i didn't 
find documentation about.. but i don't want to bug you too much :)
