I'm new at this, please be kind...
How do I reference the name of an image's "title"?
For example:

Account account1 = new Account(50.00M);
Account account2 = new Account(-7.53M);

Later in my coding, I print a line that has the name
of the account hard coded, and the value, at that
point in the process, referenced with one of these:
{0}. I forget the name of it. Index something or other?
What I want to do is the not have the account's
name thingie hard coded. I'm guessing that I'd have
to use some sort of loop, where with each time through,
only one account would dealt with. So, instead of
("account1 balance is {0}.", Balance)
I could have
("{0} balance is {1}.", [way of referencing object's title], Balance);

I'm sorry if I couldn't explain this well enough.

Im confused on what your trying to do.

This shouldn't even compile cause of the "m" after the 50.00.
Account account1 = new Account(50.00M);
Account account2 = new Account(-7.53M);

im assuming 50.00 represents money.

so im assuming you want something like this?

class idAccount {
                                idAccount( string name, int amount );
          void                print_data( void );
          void               GiveMoney( int moneyAmmount )

          string              name;
          int                  amount;

idAccount::idAccount( string name, int amount ) {
              this->name = name;
              this->amount = amount;

void idAccount::print_data( void ) {
        printf("Account %s has $%d\n", name.c_str(), amount );

void idAccount::GiveMoney( int moneyAmmount ) {
         amount += moneyAmmount;

void main( void ) {
        idAccount acct1 = new idAccount( "iceColdDuke", 500 );
        acct1->GiveMoney( 50 );
Im assuming ur probley using C# the above is in C++ but it should copy over nicely, and the concept is what I think ur trying to accomplish.
