Input parameters from Workflow No-Code Or Xaml Only

I have many activities and a customized workflow Only Xaml and I can not pass a value to a property of a custom activity, following the example of Workflow1.xoml   <pre lang="x-xml"><SequentialWorkflowActivity x:Name="Workflow1" xmlns:ns0="clr-namespace:CustomActivities;Assembly=CustomActivities, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null" xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml" xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/workflow"> <ns0:ReadLineActivity x:Name="readLineActivity1" InputText="" /> <ns0:WriteLineActivity x:Name="writeLineActivity1" OutputText="{ActivityBind readLineActivity1,Path=InputText}" /> </SequentialWorkflowActivity> based on this workflow I pass a value for the property InputText activity readLineActivity1   Thanks a lot!

Textrange.Load not loading Xaml code into a FlowDocument


I'm trying to convert text with Xaml tags into a FlowDocument.  I've done this before and it worked fine (as far as I can recall - that was about a year ago.)  Now I can't get this to work:

private Span FormatString(String _textToFormat)
    FlowDocument _formattedDocument;
    Span _formattedText;

    _myString = "<FlowDocument xmlns=\"http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation\"><Paragraph>This is some <Run FontWeight=\"bold\">bold</Run> text.</Paragraph></FlowDocument>";

    _formattedDocument = new FlowDocument();
    _formattedText = new Span();

    TextRange textRange = new TextRange(_formattedDocument.ContentStart, _formattedDocument.ContentEnd);

    MemoryStream msDocument = new MemoryStream((new ASCIIEncoding()).GetBytes(_myString));
    if (textRange.CanLoad(DataFormats.Xaml))
        textRange.Load(msDocument, DataFormats.Xaml);

// rest of function trimmed - the problem is above

Things work fine up to and including the creation of the MemoryStream (inspection with the debugger shows that the bytes are in there.)  "textRange.CanLoad" also resolves to true, but textRange.Load(msDocument, DataFormats.Xaml) doesn't seem to do anything - after that, a look at "textRa

Extending Page class in XAML and code-behind


I have several XAML "Page"s for which I would like to pull the facets that are in common together into a Page class extension I am calling ACPage. I must be missing some essential piece of knowledge, although I think I am pretty close. Can someone tell me what I am missing? I am learning C#, XAML, .NET, etc. all simultaneously.

I get the following warning:
Warning 1 'Al_Cr.PageWelcome.InitializeComponent()' hides inherited member 'Al_Cr.ACPage.InitializeComponent()'. Use the new keyword if hiding was intended. D:\Projects\Al Cr\Al Cr\Al Cr\obj\x86\Release\PageWelcome.g.cs 50 21 Al Cr

and this error:
Error 2 'Al_Cr.ACPage' cannot be the root of a XAML file because it was defined using XAML. Line 1 Position 15. D:\Projects\Al Cr\Al Cr\Al Cr\PageWelcome.xaml 1 15 Al Cr

The warning points to the auto-generated PageWelcome.InitializeComponent() function definition. The error points to the end of the bolded text, below.

My ACPage.xaml & ACPage.xaml.cs is defined thusly:

<Page x:Class="Al_Cr.ACPage"

Binding an ObservableCollection via XAML without code behind



I think I am missing something basic here.. But could someone show me what I am doing incorrectly?


  public partial class MainWindow : Window
    public ObservableCollection<string> TestOC = new ObservableCollection<string> { "First" };

    public MainWindow()

 the XAML file:

<Window x:Class="WpfApplication2.MainWindow"
    <ListView ItemsSource="{Binding TestOC}"/>

Shouldn't that just work?


calling a code behind method using xaml?


Is it possible to call a method in a XAML's code-behind through XAML itself? ie:

How to use 2 xaml files with one code behind


Hi all,

I am developing a SW that can automatically detect the render ability of current machine then decide what GUI file is loaded. At this time, I have to create these files:

1. HighResGUI.xaml + HighResGUI.xaml.cs

2. LowResGUI.xaml + LowResGUI.xaml.cs

Both HighResGUI.xaml.cs and LowResGUI.xaml.cs are the same, only the xaml has different styles (due to the render capability of the current machine). This can solve my problem, at this time. However, when I want to modify one xaml.cs code, I have to do it twice for both High and Low.

So my question is, how can I combine these two different interface (HighResGUI.xaml+ LowResGUI.xaml) and use only one code behind, for example common.xaml.cs?



How read flowdocument xaml to make available in vb code


I'm very very new to WPF and not particularly experienced in VB.Net (mostly a VBA man) so forgive me if this comes across as completely idiotic, cause it more than likely is :-( .....

The problem I have is that I want the user to have the ability to insert buttons into a richtextbox and be able to put essentially as many buttons as they like in and amongst some text.... simple enough....

Problem is I'm finding this impossible with my limitted knowledge of anything WPF related.....

I can use the following code to allow the user to double click in the rtb at a certain point and the code will go off and create a flowdocument (in vb) with an inline container with a button in it and then merge the text from the rtb with the flowdocument.... 



 Dim WithEvents aButton As TextBox = New TextBox (class level variable)

Dim aFlowDocument As FlowDocument = New FlowDocument

Dim bparagraph As Paragraph = New Paragraph

        bparagraph.Inlines.Add(New InlineUIContainer(aButton))




Designer does not remember my settings, for ex., I want to always load xaml into xaml (code) view, n


I am using VS 2010 Ultimate.  It is not remembering my setup when opening .xaml files.  It is very annonying.  I  am pretty sure VS remembers things like that.

I prefer to load my .xaml file to see the code only.  So I usually minimize the design tab.  However, I have to do this every time I open a .xaml file.

I am getting the feeling this setting is stored at the .sln level, which is even more annonying, it should be global setting for all VS sessions.

Any advice?

XAML Trigger Auto-tab when MaxLength is Reached


How can I incorporate an auto-tab when the MaxLength property is reached into a XAML Trigger, DataTrigger, PropertyTrigger, Style.Trigger, etc. Below are two such options for how I have already accomplished this with a TextBox via code-behind. I'm looking to apply it in a XAML style as well b/c I want to use it in mulitple Views.  Someone has suggested in another forum it would be possible to add a trigger into a control template for a length comparison, but I was thinking I would need a MultiTrigger condition of some sort.  Any examples? Thanks.


<TextBox x:Name="MyTextBox"

Databinding: Is code behind considered Imperative and is XAML considered Declaritive?

I'm just learning WPF and I wanted to know if databinding via code behind (create binding object, set properties, etc) is considered imperative programming and if the use of XAML extensions is considered declaritive programming.   I know the question is a bit odd, after all, who cares what it's called.  I'm just curious - I need to learn the lingo.  :D

Collapse XAML code in the designer


I'm using VS2010 Pro (SP1) on XP Pro SP3

Before I installed SP1 I could collapse XAML sections, this is very useful if you have some Ribbonbar XAML for example, you just have a comment saying what this section does and the collapsed code. It's not just useful it's a must really when you start doing some serious interface work on LOB systems.

I did notice in the SP1 release notes they fixed some issues with collapsing code blocks.

Any ideas how I can turn on the feature after SP1 is installed ?



Code Optimized Web Development Profile (VS 2010 and .NET 4.0 Series)

When you first run VS 2010 it prompts you to select an IDE profile to use. The profile you select will configure how tool windows are displayed/docked in the IDE by default and set the default keyboard shortcuts. You can then customize any of these settings by using the Tools->Options menu within the IDE and then override/change them. You can also later reset your profile and pick a different one by choosing the Tools->Import and Export Settings menu command.

call JavaScript - jQuery code from ASP.NET Server-Side

jQuery got so close to me lately that I can see myself adding the scripts to my project almost unconsciously. The thing is, jQuery is very useful for me, in almost all situations and it has been a do or die enhancement for all my project since I first put my hands on it.

Of course while using it, you encounter few situations which need a bit of research to solve, mostly when you are trying to combine it with some other technologies like: UpdatePanels and ASP.NET Ajax. For instance there are many situations when I would like to run some jQuery magic based on some decision that I make on the server side.
