Localization not working in class library (composite control)

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 21, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net


I have a class library called WEM.portal which used Resource files to localise text in my composite controls.

I store my resource files (eg MyResourceFile1.resx) in App_GlobalResources folder and then refer to them using

MyLabel1.text = My.Resources.MyResourceFile1.MyResourceKey1

This is all working ok until I create seperate files for each language such as MyResourceFile1.FR-fr.resx.

I have implemented this throughout my other web applications but the Class Library doesnt seem to want to work the same way

When I load the page it correctly showes the resourced keys which I have done through the web application BUT the resource keys in the composite controls does not seem to pick up the culture code.

Am I missing something stupid. Ive tried

  • changing the Build Action on the resource file to Content and Custom tool to GlobalResourceProxyGenerator
  • Creating a resourceManager but to no avail

Server side validation of Fileupload control not working



I've tried this method in my code behind to try and validate that the Fileupload control has a file or not. I get the error message the the event "Server Validate" cannot be found. Can anyone tell why? Thanks.

Composite Control which contains arbitrary content defined in .aspx of parent and thier ViewState


I want to write own control which can contain other. And I want to define content of the control in the .aspx file where the control is defined. I have written such control. But now I have issue with ViewState of inner controls of my control. The following samle illustrates the issue: I defined two asp:DropDownList ID="ddl1" and ID="ddl2" One of them is inside of my control and other is outside. When posback is occurred asp:DropDownList ID="ddl1 loses state and becomes empty. How to say ASP.net to store state of inner controls defined by this way?


<%@ Control Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeBehind="MyControl.ascx.cs" Inherits="DynamicControls.Controls.MyControl" %>

<div class="box">
    <div class="Header-Left">

            My Control
    <div class="Content">
        <asp:PlaceHolder ID="contentPlace" runat="Server" />

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;

Using a GenericHandler as a WebResource inside a Class Library



I hope this is the right place to ask this question.

I'm trying to make a control class library. I want to have a GenericHandler as a WebResource so I could call it from the web project that will use that control.

I need this handler will get parameters from the query string and return JSON data acourding to what it get in the QS.

I know how to create JS and images WebResources, so I tried the same on a generic handler I added to the class library project but all it does is return the source of the handler file and not the result.


Is what I'm trying to do possible? If so, what should I do?


Thank :-)

CLR Inside Out: What's New in the .NET Framework 4 Base Class Library

Timers: Comparing the Timer Classes in the .NET Framework Class Library


Timers often play an important role in both client applications and server-based components (including Windows services). Writing effective timer-driven managed code requires a clear understanding of program flow and the subtleties of the .NET threading model. The .NET Framework Class Library provides three different timer classes: System.Windows.Forms.Timer, System.Timers.Timer, and System.Threading.Timer. Each of these classes has been designed and optimized for use in different situations. This article examines the three timer classes and helps you gain an understanding of how and when each class should be used.

Serial Comm: Use P/Invoke to Develop a .NET Base Class Library for Serial Device Communications


Out-of-the-box, the only way of coding RS232 serial communications applications in the .NET environment is to import the outdated and somewhat limited MSComm ActiveX control. This article describes the development of a lean, multithreaded, and modern RS232 base class library in C# managed code. The library uses Platform Invocation Services to interact with the Win32 API directly. Application programmers can use the library from any .NET language through inheritance; the article explores examples written in C# and Visual Basic .NET.

User Control as Composite Control Property


I have a composite control (Called Dialog) which has a property "ContentControl"

At design time, I'd like this property to bind to a user control that is on the page.

When I add the items in the designer, the designer loads as expected.

However, when I try to run the web page, I get the following error:

Parser Error Message: Cannot create an object of type 'System.Web.UI.UserControl' from its string representation 'EditTerm1' for the 'ContentControl' property.

Please let me know if there is another way to bind a user control as a property of a composite control.


Designer Code:


	<cc1:Dialog ID="Dialog1" runat="server" Buttons="SaveCancel" 
Title="Edit Term" ContentControl="EditTerm1" />

Login control not working in IE7


I spent the last few weeks getting a client site up and running, but all the while I was doing all my testing with Firefox.

I tried seeing what it would look like in IE7, and everything is great.  Except that I cannot login with it.

 I do not know for the life of me why.

Any ideas?

Timer usage in a class library

Hi all,     I have a class library, inside a class of this library i want to use a timer, such that for every one second a slot should be called. The code for this is as follows: </>public void OnDataReceive() { System.Windows.Forms.Timer t1 = new System.Windows.Forms.Timer(); t1.Enabled = true; t1.Interval = 500; t1.Start(); t1.Tick += new EventHandler(t1_Tick); }   public void t1_Tick(object sender, EventArgs e) { OnReceive(); }   But it is not reaching to this function itself "t1_Tick", Could some one tell me what is wrong in this??? Thanks for any help
