ComboBox with Name and Guid

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 02, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WPF
I have a simple question.  I am trying to store a Name and a Guid inside a combobox but it only lets me store one string value.  Is there any way to store the guid value along with the Name?  I need the guid because sometimes the name will be the same.  If not what would be the best way to approach this?   Thanks,

Error: Encountered multiple versions of the same assembly with GUID...try pre-importing...TlbImp


Hi!  Can someone tell me how I can troubleshoot the following error: "Encountered multiple versions of the same assembly with GUID...try pre-importing one of these assemblies".

The website developed in VS 2010 (.Net 3.5). This error is only received on my workstation.  Another person developing the site does not experience this issue at all.  Also, not sure if this matters, but on my workstation the 'Assembly Information...' dialog contains no values even though the 'AssemblyInfo.vb' file does specify values for the title, desc, etc.  The GUID being referenced in the error is the main project of the three projects within the solution.

I tried looking through the GAC, but do not see any references to the projects or DLLs in the VS solution and am not sure what else/where to look.

If I delete the copy of the solution on my local machine and pull down a copy from source control (AnkhSVN) the solution will build with no error.  Once I make any changes, such as adding a new aspx file, then the error is received.

I can provide any additional information needed.

ActiveX and Visual Basic: Enhance the Display of Long Text Strings in a Combobox or Listbox


The combobox and listbox controls in Visual Basic have no built-in support for displaying text strings that are too long to fit in the visible area of either control. This article describes several techniques to improve the readability of long strings in each control. The first technique uses tooltips to display a combobox or listbox item. The other techniques, which use various Windows APIs, include adding a horizontal scrollbar for a listbox and determining the necessary width of the longest string given the font attributes of the text. The required steps are described for both comboboxes and listboxes.

Want to create Page URL rewrite based on Users GUID and Display name?



I am using the asp.net membership. 

On my site I have a Profile.aspx page.

In the code behind of this page,  i get the logged in UserId (Guid) and pass

this to a method in my DAL. GetUserByUserId()


In my database I have a Table called Member which the method gets the data from

and displays details on the page about  the user.


What I want to happen is when they have logged in and are diverted to Profile.aspx,

the page URL shows www.MyWebSite/Profile/UsersName 

for example



is this possible. In my Member table I have FirstName and LastName columns or do I get the

name from the membership table.


even better would be they go straight to www.MyWebsite/JohnSmith.aspx


thank you for any help

Weird "string;#" in combobox


Ok, while I am digging and digging myself into the world that's called Sharepoint I come to the next challenge.


I have two lists Projects List and Project Issues. They both have an id field (which is not the ID field of the record) and a title. I created two calculated fields for both of the tables which combines the title and the number for displaying in other pages.



Projects List:

ProjectID: 2008-001

Project Name: First Project in 2008

Display Name (which is the calculated field): 2008-001 First Project in 2008


The calculated field formula is: =[ProjectID]&" "&[Project Name]

The field returns a string.


I also have a Worksheet list where my workers have to fill in their working hours. In this list I have two lookup fields. O

ComboBox text/value selection?


When we select a value from combobox list, we can get it by combobox.selectedvalue.text, however when we enter a new value in combobox, we can get it by combobox.text when submitting a form.  During submission, how will we handle this situation? Either there is a single way of getting value in both situations or we'll have to tackle both situations separately?

Please help me tackling this situation. Thanks

WPF ComboBox Loaded Event - Handling Globally

Hello, I am having trouble hooking up to a WPF ComboBox Loaded event when trying to do it globally with EventManager.RegisterClassHandler in the parent control rather than with XAML right on the control.  Here is the code for the ComboBox control: <DataTemplate x:Key="MyUIEditor"> <ComboBox Width='Auto' x:Name="Combo" ItemsSource="{Binding RelativeSource={RelativeSource FindAncestor, AncestorType={x:Type local:MyControlWPG}}, Path=MyCollection}" SelectedValue="{Binding Value}" DisplayMemberPath="Name" SelectedValuePath="FullName" Background="Transparent" /> </DataTemplate>   Here is the code for the global event handler:   public partial class MyControlWPG : UserControl public MyControlWPG() { InitializeComponent(); EventManager.RegisterClassHandler(typeof(ComboBox), ComboBox.LoadedEvent, new RoutedEventHandler(Combo_Loaded)); } The event handler gets hit when I declare Loaded = "Combo_Loaded" in the XAML right on the ComboBox control but not when I use the global handler.  Any ideas as to why it doesn't get hit when doing it this way?

Combobox SelectionChanged: Prevent firing for every keystroke?

Is it possible for this event to fire only when the user clicks an item from combobox with the mouse or when they hit enter on it like the old 2.0 combobox worked? I have tried messing aroudn with the new selectionchanged event but I cannot figure it out. I looked on the forums here for help but only found someone returning the even to fire only when items they type are in the combobox. Thanks all help appreciated.GINtech Systems Owner
