Arranging Panel controls in a FlowLayoutPanel at runtime?

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 02, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Windows Application
I have a 10 Panels with visibility FALSE for ALL inside the FlowLayoutPanel. I set the visibility of the Panel at runtime. The problem is that, the order in which the Panel appears different for each & every time when i retrieve the value from db. Because based on the value from db i set the Order of Panel at runtime by making the Panel's visibility to TRUE. At First, when i retrieve the value i am getting the output in proper order same as by value from db. But when the value changes again the Panel is to auto adjust based on the current order from db. But its not appearing for the 2nd time. What i need to do?? Pls Help  Regards TurbulentGeek "Mark as answer if it helped you..."

VS2008 and C#: How to create PictureBox controls programmatically in a FlowLayoutPanel ?

I am trying to create multiple PictureBox controls in a FlowLayoutPanel programmatically. The number of the PictureBox controls is dynamic depending on the target image folder. My current approach results a compilation error:             // (Works !)             pictureBox1 = new System.Windows.Forms.PictureBox();             pictureBox1.Width = 150;             pictureBox1.Height = 150;             flowLayoutPanel.Controls.Add(pictureBox1);             string sFileFullName = "Resources\\file1.bmp";             pictureBox1.Image = Image.FromFile(@sFileFullName);             // (Error !)             string pbName = "pictureBox";             for (int i = 0; i < 100; i++)             {             

AJAX update panel and update progress controls

I have writtena Crystal reports web application, that prompts ths user for parameters and then apply them and exports the report to a folder as .rpt and then display the report. I prompt the parameters on one screen and then display the report on another page. I have the AJAX update panel and update progress controls in the parameter page. When the user enters the parameters and click on ok, I export the report and then loads the report to a session report document and transfer the user to the second page where the report is displayed. I use the following code to do transfer to the seconds page. I have excluded the report load and parameter assign code here.rpt.ExportToDisk(ExportFormatType.CrystalReport, "c:\reports\testrep.rpt") Session("rpt") = New ReportDocument Session("rpt").load("c:\reports\testrep.rpt") Response.Redirect("show.aspx") In the second page I have the following: rptViewer.reportsource = Session("rpt") My problem is this works one time and then stops working the second. What I found out was it comes to the statement: Response.Redirect("show.aspx") But it does not even load the show.aspx page. It stays on the parameter page. There are no errors displayed. I could not see any errors when I debug the application also. And out of the blue it works

Custom panel - missing design time support for controls.

I’m trying to implement a custom panel, one that will behave kind of like the standard Canvas panel. The implementation is done and it is working when I add components in the xaml, but what is not working is move and resize of components in the designer. In the designer each component shows the ‘selected frame’ when selected, but it cannot be moved or resized. Can someone point me to what I’m missing, or an article that describes how do add this support?.   The reason I’m not deriving from the existing Canvas is mainly because I want to understand how it works and how to implement it manually.   Thanks

Creating controls at runtime

Hello all, I am creating a calendar tool where you can insert events on certain dates.  Right now I have a textbox where the date of the event is entered and a button that will create another textbox beneath that for a second date.  When I click the add button the second textbox is created just fine, but if I click on it anymore it won't do anything. Here is my code behind for the add button... any ideas?  Dim recurringDate As TextBox = New TextBox() Dim spacer As LiteralControl = New LiteralControl("<br />") recurringDate.ID = "recurringDate" & hdnCount.Text recurringDate.Width = 100 PlaceHolder1.Controls.Add(recurringDate) PlaceHolder1.Controls.Add(spacer) hdnCount.Text = (CInt(hdnCount.Text) + 1).ToString

Add WPF controls at runtime

Hi,     I am using VS 2008  - VB.net  and WPF  . How can I add WPF controls on the form at runtime ?       Regards

Trouble with update panel and dynamic controls and post back


 I have a page that is mostly dynamically built in the page load of my VB.net code behind page.

The issue is that I made a change to the page and added a button that redirects to a secondary page. When the button is clicked there is a very noticeable lag until the button click event fires because the page is being rebuilt every time.

I had not wrapped the code in the load event in the If not ispostback.... because I have dynamic controls that the user interacts with and I need the page to be rebuilt when the user clicks them.

The dynamic controls are clickable table cells. I did some looking and I found that the RegisterPostBackControl. I thought this would be perfect but, it does not although I maybe using it incorrectly.

Here is the code flow.

Page Load

If not ispostback then


end if


private sub setuppage()

'get a reference to the scriptmanager on the master page

Dim scriptManager = DirectCast

Resizing Panel when adding controls


I have a panel on a form and I am adding controls to it from code behind.

Code behind:
First I am creating TableLayoutPanel
in loop I am adding controls to TableLayoutPanel
and then adding TableLayoutPanel to panel.

problem is I have specified panel height = 100 in designer. how to make it grow when more rows (controls) added to TableLayoutPanel?

At the same time I want to move controls below the Panel to move down..

| Panel		  |  --> I want to make this auto size
| Other Control1  |
| Other Control2  |
| Other Control3  |
| Other Control3  |

I tried setting Autosize=true for Panel and it didn't help!!

Form application with Panel and PictureBox controls: Panel.Clear() does NOT clean. (in C#)


I have been developing a Windows Form application with a Panel and many PictureBox controls. PictureBox controls are created dynamically in the Panel control. The initial display works fine, say with 100 PictureBoxes in the Panel control. Then, the Panel control is cleared by "this.panel.CLear()", for the next display, say new 50 images in the PictureBoxes.

The current situation is that the second display (with new 50 images) seem to be completed AFTER the first 100 images, although the first 100 images are cleaned. This means that the first area where the first 100 images displayed is blank, and the new 50 images are displayed after the blank/white area.

My question is how to display the new images at the beginning of the Panel control.


Removing Controls from a Panel (Not the Usual Question)


If I remove controls from a panel using

For Each ctl as control in Panel.Controls

then after removing the control I can ctl = Nothing or ctl.dispose (I can never recall if there is a difference).

But the For Each approach has the problem which has been covered here so often.


If I use another technique, e.g. Controls.Clear or a For i as Integer = 0 to Controls.Count - 1

then how can I dispose the control or set it to Nothing.  (Which maybe doesn't matter but I'm trying to be a very good citizen.)  I assume that I should not dispose the controls or set them to Nothing before removing them.  Right?

Thanks,  Bob

Problems with Repeater Control, Update Panel and the Toolkit controls


Hi Guys,


Having a bit of an issue with the Toolkit controls.

I have a Repeater Control nested inside the Update panel, the repeater item template contains a multiview control allowing users to flick through seperate bits of information. This was working fine the async update was perfect, no issues.

I have then decided to include the rating control to one of the views. problem is now everytime i want to change the view it causes the whole page to postback.  

Attached is the code.

Any help is much appreciated

My problem is on load I initialise a new thread. This thread create a new control then tries to add the control to a stackapnel and the error I receive is -

The calling thread cannot access this object because a different thread owns it.

Heres is my code e-

Saving values from controls those decided at runtime


I have a view to create an "Instruction". I need to enter InstructionName, Description, and few Attributes to it. The number of attributes is determined at runtime. When "more attributes..." is clicked we replicate a div which contains AttributeID(a dropdown) and AttributeValue(a textbox). The definition for Create view is

<% @ Page Title="" Language="C#" MasterPageFile="~/Views/Shared/Site.Master" Inherits="System.Web.Mvc.ViewPage<HexsolveMV

Scroll/Zoom Windows.Forms.Panel controls


Is there some "thumbnail" or other "easy" way to provide the ability to have a populated panel of UserControl derived objects and scrollbar "move" them and "middle mouse zoom" them on the Client area of the panel?

I am using net FrameWork 4.0  The documentation leaves a tantilizing trail and I sure it can be done, but I do not want to miss something so simple like using the Thumbnail/bitmap/Background properties or methods of the Panel control? 

Thanks Everyone



Binding WPF Controls to an Entity Data Model

Custom Controls in C# .NET

Embedding user controls in a Windows form is just like adding a simple button or text box that are already provided with .NET. These basic controls were written essentially like you code your own controls. Typically the controls you design are to be used in multiple forms or to modularize your code. These reasons help reduce the amount of code you have to type as well as make it easier for you to change your implementation. There should almost never be any reason to duplicate code because it leaves a lot of room for bugs. So, implementing functionality specific to your control in the control's source code is a good idea. This reduces code duplication as well as modularize your code, which is a good programming guideline.
