Setting / Selecting state by hand

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 06, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Windows Application
Is it possible to change the current statte of a running workflow to another activity without direct connections between them? The scenario is: WF4 with AppFabric is used as a workflow engine on a customer server, running custom workflows. The workflows consist of activities with human interaction Wih an monitoring/administration tool the administrator can supervise the running workflows If in one workflow something did not work as wanted the administrator can set the next activity to any of the previous ones of his own chosing.

Problem setting Foreground with Visual State Manager (WPF - .Net v4.0

0 down vote favorite I have a WPF application, and I am attempting to style a TextBox using the .Net v4 Visual State Manager. Specifically, I am attempting to set the colors of the Foreground and Background for the MouseOver state. What is happening is that, while the background and border are changing perfectly, the foreground is not. If the brushes that I am using get their color via a StaticResource, then the foreground does not change at all. If the brushes that I am using get their color via a DynamicResource, then when I mouse over a TextBox, the foreground of all TextBoxes change. Clearly, either I'm doing something wrong, or what I want to do is simply not possible with VSM (which would be rather disappointing). Here are the resources that I am using:   <Color x:Key="ControlBackgroundColor" R="178" G="178" B="178" A="255" />  <Color x:Key="ControlForegroundColor" R="0" G="0" B="0" A="255" />  <Color x:Key="BorderColor" R="127" G="127" B="127" A="255" />  <Color x:Key="MouseOverControlBackgroundColor" R="0" G="0" B="0" A="255" />  <Color x:Key="MouseOverControlForegroundColor" R="255" G="2

keep treeview state after selecting an item from it


hi all,

i am using a treeview control in my master page to act like a menu.

it has different nodes levels e.g. root, parent and left.

when i click an item from the tree view - i am taken to the page - but the tree view goes to its orginal state of being collapsed rather than keeping its state of nodes that have been expanded.

does anyone know how i can maintain the state of the tree view in the master page?

many thanks 

Selecting a Task List in Sharepoint Designer 2007 while setting up "Collect Data from User"

When using Sharepoint Designer 2007 to Collect Data from User the task list cannot be selected.  Instead the Task list that is defaulted is the most recently created Task List.  How can I select a specific Task list to associate with"Collect Data from User"?

Truly Understanding View State

This article provides a detailed understanding of the ViewState.

Design Patterns - Using the State Pattern in C#

What is the State Pattern?

The State Pattern is a behavioral pattern that can be used to alter the behavior of an object at run time. As the state of an object changes, the functionality of the object can change drastically. This change of behavior is hidden from the Client and the Client interfaces with a wrapper object known as the Context. The State Pattern is a dynamic version of the Strategy Pattern.

view state vs request parameters


If  the view state is the data entered into the form fields then they are supposed to be available in the request parameters or request body. Then why would we need view state for?

SQL Server Session state problem.


Hi to all,

I have some things that I want to know. I am right now using a free asp.net webhosting ("somee.com"). The problem is that when I am visiting a page, there's a tendency that values stored in my session variables are lost. Therefore, it causes an error when the requested page is loaded.

1. I am thinking of using sessionState mode="SqlServer". Will it solve my problem?

Actualy Im working on it but Im having problems when connecting to the sql database.

2.  Is that a problem in the webhost?

3. Do free webhosting sites provide allow session state in the sql server?. Because ive tried it locally into my computer and error say's i should intall the ASP.NET Session State SQL Server version 2.0 or above.

Custom Server Control Property not maintaining state


I have created a server control consisting of a TextArea and a div under it.  My goal is to create my own asp:TextArea type control.  the div is for a Character count of the text area and seems to work ok but i added a CharacterCountVisible property to the control that is always returning true.  See Proptery definition below


<Bindable(False), Category("Appearance"), DefaultValue("True"), Localizable(True)> Property CharacterCountVisible() As Boolean
        Return _CountBoxVisible
    End Get
    Set(ByVal value As Boolean)
        _CountBoxVisible = value
    End Set
End Property

Note the _CountBoxVisible variable is define inside the class as :

Dim _CountBoxVisible as Boolean = True

What I am trying to do is give the user/coder the option to show/utilize the char count feature.  Can make it disappear with textarea1.CharacterCountVisible = False but setting it to true will not make it display.


What am i missing





Setting default localization



I ever thought that I can set a default localization if the users one (which is set in the browser) isn't available.

I've implemented my localresource files for localization. The start.aspx.resx contains all texts and elements for German use and the start.aspx.en.resx for English users. When I switch the language in the browser settings from German to English everything works fine and the english text is displayed. But when I switch to an other language which is not German or English, it takes defaulty the german resource files.

I've set

UICulture="auto:en-US" Culture="auto:en-US"

as well, but it didn't assume the .en resource file automatically. (For example when I enter the website and switch the browser language to French or Italian it should take the english resource files.)

Thanks and regards,
