Does anyone know how to connect Solenoids to a Arduino? Answered

Hi All,

I'm working on a project and I was wondering if any of you could help me hook up a solenoid to an arduino so that I can control it using a button?

The solenoid I'm working with is 24v dc with 6 watts

Thanks 
Aman

Like L. says, why do you need to use an Arduino ;-)

BUT, if you do, use an Instructable like this one

Why not just use a button?
