stored procedure as class property

I'm trying to build a VB.Net class.
I'd like to show a list of stored procedure read from a database as a property value

example
class name: myclass
property name: storedprocedurelist

myclass.storedprocedurelist.(here I want a list of my stored procedure read from a database)

hoping to be clear

If you want a list only then you can expose a property returning a string array. Like

Public MyClass
  Private m_StoredProcedures as String() 'private variable to hold property value

....

  Public Property StoredProcedureList() As String()
    Get
      Return m_StoredProcedures
    End Get
    Set(ByVal value As String())
      m_StoredProcedures = value
    End Set
  End Property

....

End Class

But if you want to have a more object-orientated class witch exposes a collection of objects with their own properties then you have to define a class for a single strored procedure, a class that represents a collection of you stored procedures and add that collection class to your MyClass class.

If you need any further details please let me know

before my question I tryed something like this:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Public Class Class1
    Private m_Storedprocedures As Collection = New Collection

    Public ReadOnly Property StoredProcedureList() As Collection
        Get
            Return Populate()
        End Get
    End Property

    Public Function Populate() As Collection
        m_Storedprocedures.Add("sp_sample1")
        m_Storedprocedures.Add("sp_sample2")

        Return m_Storedprocedures
    End Function
End Class
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
DRIVER CODE IN ASP.NET PAGE:

Dim oTest As Class1
oTest = New Class1
Response.Write(oTest.StoredProcedureList.Item(1))

But I won't this
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My goal is to have a class that expose me a list of all stored procedure stored into a database.
I arranged an image to show the result I want to obtain at:

to better explain my goal

Well, I have never did some kind of stuff before and couldn't find any samples, but I think if you want to have something like your picture shows then your class has to have "hardcoded" these members. But this can make your code to become "buggy" or something like "environment-depending" in case if database's structure changes (e.g. some stored procedures are added or deleted).

As I mentioned earlier I'd suggest you to use ArrayList. The link below has some brief tutorials on how to use arraylist objects:

You can define a TypeConverter for the property to retrieve values.
