Re: How to get id of/remove a default handler?

I must admit that what I was trying to do was probably not intended to be
done this way but that's the exercise I received and everyone here is aware

Anyway, it's all clear to me now. Thank you for the nice explanation, it's
mostly a new stuff to me and I appreciate all your help guys (-:
