DataTrigger - Binding Value Property to Target Controls Content Property

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 01, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WPF
This Gives me an error..   <Style x:Key="radioButtonSelctionKey" TargetType="{x:Type RadioButton}">       <Style.Triggers>       <DataTrigger Binding="{Binding RelativeSource={RelativeSource Mode=FindAncestor, AncestorType={x:Type UserControl}},Path=ValueText}" Value="{Binding Path=Content}">       <Setter Property="IsChecked" Value="True"></Setter>       </DataTrigger>       </Style.Triggers>       </Style> Is it valid to bind Value Property. If not then does it mean that the Value propety must always fix and can not be changed or Bound to any property Dose it mean that both of the way of setting Value proeprt are WRONG..? 1) Value="{Binding Path=Content}"> Or 2) Value="{Binding RelativeSource={RelativeSource Mode=Self},Path=Content}">

Binding a Button's Content property to an XPath query, Accelerator functionality is lost



I'm using WPF 3.5.

I'm binding a button's Content property to an XPath query, and all is well until I try to make use of the Accelerator feature. 

When I hardcode the text, and place an _ (underscore) in the content, it renders as an accelerator key when the Alt key is pressed.  However, when the content is a binding expression that uses an XPath query, the underscore does not render as an accelerator key.  It simply appears as part of the content. 

Here is some simplified XAML code to illustrate:

<UserControl x:Class="Myapp.UI.Screens.PortalScreens.Portal"
	xmlns:mc="http://schemas.openxmlformats.org/markup-compatibility/2006" mc:Ignorable="d"
		<XmlDataProvider x:Key="languageResources" d:IsDataSource="True" Source="Resources\Language\English.xml" />
<Grid x:Name="layoutRoot">
		<Button x:Name="ExitButtonWithHardCodedText" Grid.Row=&quo

In a style template, express a property in terms of the controls properties it is applied to.

Hello,   In the style template below, which works fine, I'd like to express the "Points" property in terms of the applied to controls "Width" and "Height" properties.  As you see, the "Fill" property is expressed in terms of the "Background" property the template is applied to by means of Fill="{TemplateBinding Background}".  The following does not work:   Points="0,({TemplateBinding Height} / 4)  ({TemplateBinding Width} / 12.5),({TemplateBinding Height} / 4) . . ."   Is what I'm looking for possible, all in XAML, no code/converters? <Style x:Key="FolderButton" TargetType="Button"> <Setter Property="Margin" Value="2.5" /> <Setter Property="Template"> <Setter.Value> <ControlTemplate TargetType="{x:Type Button}"> <Grid> <Polygon Fill="{TemplateBinding Background}" Stroke="{TemplateBinding BorderBrush}" Points="0,5 4,5 6,0 23,0 25,5 50,5 50,20 0,20"/> <ContentPresenter HorizontalAlignment="Center" VerticalAlignment="Center"/> </Grid> </ControlTemplate>

Dynamic Binding of a Public Property in a User Control

Hi, I am not sure how to pass a variable from an .aspx page to an .ascx page.  I have a Control that puts rotating banners on a page.  The control has several public properties.  However, only one of those properties changes on the page level.  All the other properties are the same for every page site-wide.  So, instead of setting all the properties on every page in my sites (many sites), I want to set it up so I only have to setup the sitewide properties once and only the page level properties on each page.   I want to create a control with a property of AdKeyword="somename" and pass it to another control that will grab that page-level property and add it to all the other site-wide properties.  I guess what I need could be called a Dynamic Control Property.   My .aspx page has:<%@ Register TagPrefix="uc1" TagName="Banner1" Src="banner1.ascx" %> <asp:Content ID="Leaderboard" runat="server" ContentPlaceHolderID="Leaderboard"> <uc1:Banner1 AdKeyword="L2Chamber" runat="server" OverrideHeight="90" /> </asp:Content> My banner1.ascx page has:<%@ Control Language="VB" ClassName="UserControl297" %> <%@ register tagprefix="uc1&

How to Set System.Windows.Controls.WebBrowser.Document Property , navigatetostring,stream DONT WORK


Hi , i search in google , bing , cuil and all of searchs provider for the solution of this problem :


I get HTML content from HTTPWebRequest(because is much requests and if i use WebBrowser control directly i get a lag and video processing unnecessary)


And i need  set System.Windows.Controls.WebBrowser.Document with this text.


"Solution" , use new methods call NavigateToString() or NavigateToStream()

BUT THIS PROBLEM , both DON'T work with <javascript src="something.js"> or <style src="something.css">

Navigates ONLY read and process content INSIDE this tags , no external files (like 'something.js')

Solution i encountred after two weeks of search

Process the text and replace the files by the content of that.

But this i think that is no real solution. (i tested , work , but not perfectly) * I write my own code because that post dont have source code.

for why you need to do that?

because i need interact with users after search , and use html's input to re-search again and process this file with all extern files is too slow

Any solutions?

DataTrigger bound to a datebound property using a converter not working.


Hi all, this will sound like a simple problem but I am really stumped!

I'm trying to create a TextBlock with a style that collapses when the text is "" or null. So in the style there's a DataTrigger bound to Text using a Converter that provide a boolean test for "" or null.

The problem is that the triggers never seem to fire. Debugging the converter suggests it never gets used. The debug output also doesn't warn me of failed bindings so I have no idea what is going wrong!


			<GlacialControls:IsNullOrEmptyStringConverter x:Key="isNullOrEmptyStringConverter"/>
			<Style x:Key="Co

How to binding to a caculated property?


I want to create a binding like this

    SerialPort port;
    CheckBox send;
    TextBox txtSending;

    public bool canManualSend
         return port.IsOpen && send.Checked;

    txtSending.DataBindings.Add(("Enabled", this, "canManualSend") ;<br/>

But it only works one time. After the form is loaded, whatever port.IsOpen or send.Checked is changing, the txt.Sending has no effect.


And how to make it work?

TwoWay data binding to a specified index and property in a collection


Hello everybody,

my problem is, I can't bind to a specified item and property in a collection. The code:

    <ContentPresenter x:Key="cont1" Content="{Binding Path=.[0], Mode=TwoWay}" />

Binding complex property to Gridview columns


We know that using something like Bind("CustomerName") can be used in the Text property of a label control inside a gridview, where CustomerName is a property of the object whose collection is bound to the gridview. If that property is of a complex type (object of another class), how do we use a property of that inline object as a binding for the gridview column?
