Is textbox the only control with a multi-line option?

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 01, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
I was trying to use a label control to print out a string with spaces and line feeds, but with no success. Textbox is the only control I have found so far that will print my line feeds (ControlChars.Lf)  However, can I remove the scrollbar from the textbox display that appears when textboxmode is set to multiline? -smc

How can I stop CR from being removed when a multi-line textbox in a section is within another sectio



I have a multi-line text box that sits in an optional section. This optional section is within another optional section. When it is displayed it has CR removed. I know that it does work when there is only one encompassing section.

Does anyone know how to stop this happening? Any clever little tricks...;)

Actually - just tested again and I can get it to work sometimes i.e. when I first open the form, but then it will remove CR from the mentioned section when another optional section is opened - any ideas????

Composite control: How to bubble a textbox's TextChanged event?


I've created a composite control that contains several controls, including a textbox. I'm trying to expose the TextChanged event of the textbox as an event on the composite control. I understand that events can be bubbled up the control hierarchy and handled at a higher level, which I've attempted to do, but I can't get the bubbled event to fire. When I drop the control on an aspx I can see the TextChanged event, I can subscribe to the event, but nothing ever happens. Any suggestions? Here is what I think is the relevant code:

// My event
private static readonly object EventTextChanged = new object();

//Handle the bubbled event
EventHandler textChangedHandler = (EventHandler)Events[EventTextChanged];

protected override bool OnBubbleEvent(object source, EventArgs e) 
    bool handled = false;

Mission Impossible? Use Javascript to Disable a Multi-Line Rich Text Field


Hey Community,

Here's a tough one that I have struggled with and so far have not been able to find an answer for - how do you use Javascript to disable a multi-line rich text field.  I have customized a SP Edit form by adding a CEWP.  In the CEWP I have added the Javascript below (only a partial code sample provided) to disable several fields in the form.  The code works fine for single line text fields but it does not work for multi-line rich text fields.  Any suggestions?

<script language="javascript">
//This runs the function when the form first loads

//This locks the fields the users should not modify
function lockFields()
  var theInputTFTitle = getTagFromIdentifierAndTitle("Input","TextField","Title");
  theInputTFTitle.readOnly = true;
  theInputTFTitle.style.color = 'gray';
  //alert(" Value: " + theInputTFTitle.value);//for testing

   var theInputDDLReplyStatus = getTagFromIdentifierAndTitle("select","DropDownChoice","Reply Status");
  theInputDDLReplyStatus.disabled = true;
  //alert(" Value: " + theInputDDLReplyStatus.value);//for testing

Creating an integer only textbox control

Im close I just cant figure out why its not working. public partial class IntegerTextBox : TextBox { public IntegerTextBox() { } private void OnTextChanged(KeyPressEventArgs e) { if (!char.IsControl(e.KeyChar) && !char.IsDigit(e.KeyChar)) e.Handled = true; } }

multi-line regex in C#

Hi, I am sure this is really simple, but i can't figure it out. I have a string that looks like this: REV=A1 STATUS=Working I would like to grab 'A1' and 'Working', in a single regex, but i cannot seem to handle the linebreak. I have tried putting something together in Rad's Regular expressions designer and this pattern will match it all: REV=(?<Rev>.{2}) STATUS=(?<Status>.+) but i don't know to write a two-lined regex in C#. I have also tried to include the linebreak, with both \n and \r, but none of them worked. So, how is my pattern suppoed to look for this?Nicolai Søndergaard LM Glasfiber A/S

Need help with validating an alphanumeric string within a textbox control.

Hi everyone,I am developing a simple WinForms app for a presentation next week and need to validate that a particular string in a particular textbox is alphanumeric.  I have included the code from the button click event handler below: // Alphanumeric private void btnValidate4_Click(object sender, EventArgs e) { try { if (txtAlphanumeric.Text == "") MessageBox.Show("Please enter an alphanumeric string before clicking the 'Validate' button.", "Whoa there, pardner!!", MessageBoxButtons.OK, MessageBoxIcon.Information); else { Regex rgxAlphanumeric = new Regex("^[a-zA-Z0-9]*$"); Match alphaNumericMatch = rgxAlphanumeric.Match(txtAlphanumeric.Text); if (!alphaNumericMatch.Success) MessageBox.Show("The string supplied does NOT match the specified pattern.", "Error!", MessageBoxButtons.OK, MessageBoxIcon.Error); else { MessageBox.Show("The supplied string matches the specified pattern.", "Success!", MessageBoxButtons.OK, MessageBoxIcon.Exclamation);

regular expression: Read a multi line paragraph

I am trying to build a regular expression that will capture a paragraph of any length that starts with "Ordinance Summary:" and ends with "<=>" but doesn't actually include them in the selection.  And I need it to stop at the first instance of <=>. Here is an example of what what I might encounter: "Ordinance Summary: Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit. Maecenas porttitor congue massa.

Wizard Control textbox data is lost

I'm using a wizard contol with several textbox fields. I have two textbox fields disabled (textbox19 and textbox20)because I don't want the user to change the values that are calculated from the other textboxes (see javascript below). I do this with javascript on the clientside. My problem occurs when the user is in STEP2 and goes back to STEP1 the values in the disabled fields are gone. Is there a way to fix this? I would also like to perform a validation on textbox20 but I haven't been able to do that with the textbox disabled. How can I do validations on a field that is disabled? I've tried enabling the fields and using readonly = true but that doesn't work either. Any suggestions? // Client Side script to do calculations <script type="text/javascript">       function calculateSubTotal() {      var txt6 = document.getElementById('<%= TextBox6.ClientID %>');     var txt12 = document.getElementById('<%= TextBox12.ClientID %>');     var txt18 = document.getElementById('<%= TextBox18.ClientID %>');     var txt14 = document.getElementById('<%= TextBox14.ClientID %>');     var txtSubTotal = document.getElementById('<%= TextBox19.Cl

Reading MultiLine TextBox line by line

If I have a list of something in a MultiLine TextBox, one item per line, how do I then in turn read this? Right now TextBox.Text reads it all as one line. Lets say we have this: TextBox txtbx; At first I thought I could split the string on Environment.Newline, this doesn't work.  Error.Next I thought I could Replace(Environment.Newline,";").Split(";"); This didn't work either, Error.  Both gave cannot convert string to char[] exceptions. What I want to be able to do is read the input line by line and do something with each item one by one. Does anyone know how to do this?Thanks.

Multi select control does not work with Infopath. :(

I create new lookup column that allows multiple values.  The important part is the column is the Title(linked to item) so the item is shown as Hyperlink item to the actual item.  This works fine, but then I would like to fine tune my form with infopath.  When I open this form it complains about these columns, basically will not let me open the form without first deleting these lookup columns.  So I then try the other way I create a lookup column from infopath and this work fine, the only problem being is these items no longer so up as hyperlinks to the original items.  This is a major bumma, any one have any suggestions to get this working?

Is there a method that returns the control's type, such as "TextBox", "TextBlock", "Canvas", etc.,

Hello, I have a method that is passed in a FrameworkElement Ctrl.  When I use Ctrl.GetType().ToString() I get "System.Window.Controls.TextBox" or another string if a different type of control is passed in.  All I am interested in is the text after the last dot/period.  In my searching I thought I came across something that just returned the portion I'm looking for, but now can't find it. Is there a method that returns the control's type, such as "TextBox", "TextBlock", "Canvas", etc., without its parents? Regards, Robert
