How Do I Not Include: myControl.GetType.GetProperty("Text") When No Property Window Setting?

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 01, 2010    Points: 0   Category :.NET Framework
Hi All, Posted below is code I'm using to generate a list of controls that have either a "Text" or "Caption" property. However, for certain controls in the resulting list, the property setting (Text/Caption) does not appear in the "Property Window" of the IDE when that control is selected. One example of this is the Systems.Windows.Forms.PictureBox control. Is there a way I can determine this and if so - how do I exclude these control(s) from my list?     Private Sub cmdValidateControls_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles cmdValidateControls.Click         txtResults.Clear()         For Each ctrl As Object In Me.Controls             LogControl(ctrl)         Next     End Sub     Private Sub LogControl(ByVal ctrlIn As Object)         If System.Diagnostics.Debugger.IsAttached Then             If (Not ctrlIn.GetType.GetProperty("Text") Is Nothing) Or (Not ctrlIn.GetType.GetProperty("Caption") Is Nothing) Then                 txtRes

TextBox shows binding source text when window load, so why not with the ComboBox?

How can I get a ComboBox to show the binding source value when my window opens?  I have been searching all day for a solution to this, but cannot find anything.  So I have created a sample project to demonstrate my problem.  Below is a Vehicle class, very simple, two members Category and Make.  Category is an enumeration, Make is a string. namespace ComboExample { public class Vehicle { // Constants and enumerations public enum eCategory { Road, Air, Sea } // Attributes public eCategory Category { get; set; } public String Make { get; set; } // Construction public Vehicle(eCategory Category, String strMake) { this.Category = Category; this.Make = strMake; } } } Here is the C# for the MainWindow.  A new Vehicle object is created as a member.  In the constructor I set a data-provider in the XAML to this Vehicle object.  There is a button event for showing the values of the controls and objects so I can check the binding. namespace ComboExample { // Interaction logic for MainWindow.xaml public partial class MainWindow : Window { // Attributes Vehicle m_Car = new Vehicle(Vehicle.eCategory.Road, "BMW"); // Construction public MainWindow() { InitializeComponent(); // link data-p

Windows Workflow : Activity Binding Properties Window Ellipses button not visible for one property

I have created a custom activity, when I am using this activity in workflow designer I am not getting the ellipsis button to select a property.  I am getting the ellipses button for first property LongValue while not getting the option for "NavigationUrl" property. This is the code for my custom activity. public partial class SetLongAsResult: Activity {         public SetLongAsResult() { InitializeComponent(); }         public static DependencyProperty LongValueProperty = DependencyProperty.Register("LongValue", typeof(long), typeof(SetLongAsResult));           public static DependencyProperty NavigationUrlProperty = DependencyProperty.Register("NavigationUrl", typeof(string), typeof(SetLongAsResult));           [Description("long value to be returned")]         [Category("Set Result Data")]         [BrowsableAttribute(true)]         [DesignerSerializationVisibilityAttribute(DesignerSerializationVisibility.Visible)]         public long LongValue         {             get             {         

Cleanest way of setting max string length for text in GridView cells?

I want to make sure that each row in the table is the height of one line of text only.  I know you can set RowStyle-Wrap="false", but I also don't want any really wide rows.  I know I can go through each cell on RowDataBound or something and cut it to a particular length and then append an ellipsis on the end, but is there a neater way of doing the same thing?

Creating a volume control slider/setting one template property based on another

So, what I want to do, is to make a volume control that looks like a right angle triangle with the 90 degree angle on the bottom right, and then when you click on it, the area to the left of the selected point is shown in a different color.  In other words, I've created a slider with the right background, what I can't do, is work out how to show the selected area by filling in the triangle.  I have worked out how to bind the height of my triangle on the left to the value of the control, but right now, the rate of rise is exactly half of what I need it to be.  I need to know how to change the template for the area to the left of the selection ( which is the repeat button ) so that the background is twice the height that it is right now.  No matter what size I make the slider, the area is always 1/2 the size it needs to be, so I am sure if I could get it to double inside my template, it would work fine. <ResourceDictionary xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"     xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml">       <Style x:Key="SliderButtonStyle" TargetType="{x:Type RepeatButton}">         <Setter Property="SnapsToDevicePixels" Value="true"/>         <

Textbox Text Property

I am new to VB and I have read that if I don't explicity cast variable types it will eat up performance. I have been casting certain objects, such as values from data readers, but I was wondering if the object has a property that says it is a string, like the textbox "Text" property, if I need to still cast that as a string.   Right now my code says "txtSearch.Text" but should I be using "txtSearch.Text.ToString()"?   Thanks in advance for the help!

Setting an attached property by a Setter element?

I have the fragment below as contents of a <Grid> element. The idea is that if the checkbox is checked the <TreeView> element should only span one instead of two columns. When I check the checkbox the background of the treeview turns red, but the treeview continues to span 2 instead of 1 column. It's a bit like the attached property Grid.ColumnSpan does not get assigned by the <Setter Property="Grid.ColumnSpan" Value="1"/> at all. What should I do in order to achieve what I want?Best regards,Henrik Dahl   <TreeView    x:Name="Blas"    ItemsSource="{Binding Path=BlasRoot.Children}" d:LayoutOverrides="Width" Margin="0,0,0,8" Grid.Column="0" Grid.ColumnSpan="2">    <TreeView.Style>       <Style>          <Style.Triggers> <DataTrigger Binding="{Binding ElementName=chkPosition, Path=IsChecked}" Value="True">    <Setter Property="Grid.ColumnSpan" Value="1"/>    <Setter Property="TreeView.Background" Value="Red"/> </DataTrigger>          </Style.Triggers>       </Style>    </TreeView.Style> </TreeView> <CheckBox HorizontalAlignment="Left" Margin="-50,0,0,0" x:Name="chkPosition" VerticalAlignment="Top" Content="

Setting Window.Icon to Vista 256x256 PNG icon causes a FileFormatException

If I set the Icon property to a Vista icon, I get a FileFormatException stating that the image format is unrecognized. If I try the same thing with an old Windows XP icon (without PNG compressed images) it works correctly. I simply cannot believe that WPF doesn't support Vista icons. Asbjørn

Adding a Callback to the Window Title Property

Hi all-   I have a quick question.  I have a customized window, based on the Window object.  Is there a way to create a Callback handler on the Title Property, so that I can basically capture and perform my own customized actions when the Title property is changed?  I have no problems adding custom dependency properties (as below), but adding a callback to an existing property from the base class is where I am a little lost and need guidance.   Thanks for any help. Chris   public class WindowBase : Window { // Several Dependency Properties exist as below, with callbacks which trigger on the change of the property // The trick is to find a way to add a callback to the Title property of Window public string Caption { get { return (string)GetValue(CaptionProperty); } set { SetValue(CaptionProperty, value); } } public static readonly DependencyProperty CaptionProperty = DependencyProperty.Register("Caption", typeof(string), typeof(WindowBase), new PropertyMetadata(OnCaptionChanged));

SSRS BUG? When a FontStyle expression is used in a report, the Browser Text Size setting overrides t

I have created a report that has the same font size for all the sections in the report. Some sections' fields use a FontStyle expression that changes the FontStyle between Normal and Italics conditionally. I run the report through the reportserver interface and the report looks fine. I run the report through the ReportViewer control and the the fields which use the FontStyle formula are overridden by the Browser's Page Text Size. Also, when I look at the inline HTML Style that's generated, the fields with the formula don't have a style, they are blank, while the fields with without a FontStyle expression have an inline HTML Style generated. And this is probably why the browser text size setting can override. This seems like a ReportViewer HTML render bug... Or is there a way around it??

Setting a Property that causes update on a UpadatePanel on Init stage.

Hi, I have a custom control with a UpdatePanel inside. Depending of user action or page programing I call Update method of my UpdatePanel to refresh html portion to user.For example, I created a property called Title. If the Title change i call Update of my UpdatePanel.public string Title { get { return labelTitle.Text; } set { if (labelTitle.Text != value) { labelTitle.Text = value; panelUpdate.Update(); // Refresh the entire control } } }   But if the Title property is configured on aspx file, my UpdatePanel is always refreshed because my Title property is setted on Init stage of page life cycle.I need to know if this property is setted on init stage or if ViewState is restored to avoid call Update, or any tips to avoid refresh my control everytime. Thanks,Tales Aguiar.
