Using a form to control another form WPF

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 04, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WPF
Hi, I am making a wpf web browser!,, i have a fav button that opens up a small window that has the combo box with the list of favorites in. When the user clicks the ok button i want the webBrowser on the other form to load whatever they clicked. Its much simpler in vb because i use: form1.webBrowser1.navigate("http://www.bla-bla-bla.com") Thats all i want to do but it has become a problem! i have tried this way thinking it would work: form1 form = new form1(); if(comboBox1.text = "bla-bla-bla") { form.webBrowser1.navigate(http://www.bla-bla-bla.com); } Please help, lee

User control or sub-form inside tab-pages? Best practice?

I've got a Windows Forms application with numerous tab-pages within a tab-control. Each tab-page is a diffirent user entry form with different controls of varying types. As the application is fairly large it is important that more than one developer can work on it simultaneously. Thus we decided to create a form for each tab so that different developers could work on different forms at the same time without overwriting each other's code. Each of these "sub-forms" are then assigned its relevant container tab-page as its parent. This works well but I was wondering if this is good practice or not, after another colleague commented that we are making forms look like user controls and that we should rather be creating a user control for each tab. I've converted two of the forms to user controls with relative ease and it does work nicely as well but with one draw back. On the main parent form, e.g. frmMain, where the tab control lives, there is one single button the clear the current display. When you click "Clear display" it clears various others items displayed on the main from, finds the current selected tab and clears its contents. The latter is easy to do with sub forms as I can simply close and dispose the sub form inside the selected tab, and load a new instance. I don't have to write custom logic to go and reset/clear each control on that form. Thi

Find a form control that is created after postback

HiI have a drop down list (created during form design) with auto postback enabled. And I use AJAX to prevent 'visible postback'. When a user choose an item from the drop down list, the system will then perform a postback and created a set of form control's such as label, drop down list and text box for entry.Then, I will have a button (created during form design), and when I click on the button, i want to find for the form control that are created after the post back, but I cant find them!I wonder if those form controls are render to the web form?? But I have no problem finding the drop down list that is created during design time.Anyway I can find those form controls?Thank You.

Accessing the selected value of a dropdownlist control in a Form View


I need to verify the selection in a dropdown list control is not a certain value.  It is in the edit mode of a formview.

just to verify that I could access it I tried to put the value in a label,  however it is always empty:


this is what I used

  'Dim droplist5 As DropDownList = DirectCast(FormView1.Row.FindControl("DropDownList5"), DropDownList)


            LabelHeaderwarning.Text = droplist5.SelectedValue.ToString


I also tried the validation controls but they don't seem to work with a drop down control.


Any suggestions on this would be extremely helpful



Problem merging toolstrip control placed in UserControl with MDI Form menu


I currently have an MDI application with a MenuStrip as Main Menu. The application has a child form where an instance of one UserControl with a MenuStrip is dynamically created when the form is loaded. The MenuStrip contained on this UserControl is correctly merged with the Menu of the MDI container. In response to a button click on the child form, an instance of another UserControl is created, containing a different Menu and the previously UserControl instance is discarded. The expected action is that the menu of the second UserControl will replace the menu of the first UserControl on the MDI container menu, but this is not happening and the main menu keeps the menu items of the first UserControl.

How can I force the merging of the menu contained on the second user control with the Main Menu.

Thanks in advance.
