Static and Dynamic Resources with Brush and Resource Dictionary

Hi, We're using a huge resource dicionary with all the styles and templates for our controls. Some of these are the images that we use for some buttons and icons in the application. As far as I know, Static and Dynamic resources have nothing to do with the ResourceDictionary and The Brush, i could use any of them, if i need the resource to load only when needed i could use dynamic and if i want it to load on initialization time i should use Static. But everytime i try to use a static resource to define a Fill of a rectangle my application crashes on initialization time (when it exectues the InitializeComponents). The resource i'm using is a DrawingBrush that is declared on my resource dictionary and the only way i could make it works is defining it as DynamicResource. What is the limitation? Its realy impossible to define a static resource on a fill property, and if its realy impossible, why?

Xaml cannot find StaticResource even sure the resource is defined



I'm having trouble using static resources for color schemes in my user interface library. I have my Generic.xaml file, where I "include" all the other resource dictionary files:

  <ResourceDictionary Source="/Moonlite.Platform.Shell.UI;component/Themes/ColorSchemes/Default.xaml" />

GeneratedDuration as static resource or as constant value in Visual States

Visual Studio can't resolve static resource in WPF window, even though it works at run time - why?


I have a WPF window and am using the MVVM pattern. I set the view model as a resource for the window as follows...

  ...other stuff removed for clarity...
  <mvvm:DhrTemplatesViewModel x:Key="viewmodel" />

I want to set the window's data context to use the resource, and found that the following XAML works...

<StaticResource ResourceKey="viewmodel"/>

The problem is that I can only do this by typing the XAML manually, Visual Studio doesn't show the resource anywhere. I can go to the window's properties and click the little icon next to the DataContext property, click the "Apply resource" option, but it doesn't show "viewmodel" as a resource, static or dynamic. If I enter the XAML manually and then open the "Apply resource" pop-up window, it has the "viewmodel" underlined as an error, and hovering over it shows a tooltip "cannot resolve resource reference"

However, when I run the application, it works fine, so the resource is being resolved at run time.

syntax to specify subobject collection as xaml resource


Sorry for the vague subject title.

A UserControl has an ObservableCollection

the UserControl is instantiated in MainWindow.xaml

I want to specify the collection defined within the usercontrol as a resource in MainWindow.xaml

I thought the syntax might be like the following


<local:myUserControl.MyCollection x:key="whatever"/>


However this produces an error "The attachable property 'MyCollection' was not found in type 'myUserControl'

abstract away the source of the connection string using a class with a static property.

ASP.NET provides a configuration system we can use to keep our applications flexible at runtime. In this article we will examine some tips and best practices for using the configuration system for the best results.

The element of a web.config file is a place to store connection strings, server names, file paths, and other miscellaneous settings needed by an application to perform work. The items inside appSettings are items that need to be configurable depending upon the environment, for instance, any database connection strings will change as you move your application from a testing and staging server into production.

Let's abstract away the source of the connection string using a class with a static property.

set messageTemplateResourceName from resource file in Validation appication block.



  I am using Validation application block in my project and want to set validation message from resource file, but not able to do that. I tried giving the path of resource file in messageTemplateResourceType and name of resource in messageTemplateResourceName. But it did not help as I only receive the message if I have set something in messageTemplate even after setting the resource file.

Here is my code:
