Storing and retrieving arrays in Hashtables

I have a hashtable object that has a key("Event") and a value of type String[].  It seems that the String[] is being stored fine.  I need to know how I can retrieve the value from the Hashtable as a String[] since it is stored as type "Object".  Can I just explicitly cast to a String[]???

Can I just explicitly cast to a String[]?

Yes.  That is how you get items out of a Hashtable.
