Adding, removing or editing the items of combobox.....

Hello everyone, I am working on this application which requires Items of the combobox added, edited or removed by the end user in the different section of the application such as settings window or something like that. I guess If we bind the Combobox to the database where we could easily add , remove or edit the items of combox but for the application that doesn't use database that creates a lot of overhead. To demonstrate that Here is my sample application Window1.xaml <Window x:Class="MySampleApplication.Window1" xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation" xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml" xmlns:s="clr-namespace:System;assembly=mscorlib" Title="Window1" Height="300" Width="300" xmlns:local="clr-namespace:MySampleApplication" ResizeMode="NoResize" WindowStartupLocation="CenterScreen"> <Window.Resources> <local:StringsLenToBooleanConverter x:Key="mvc"/> </Window.Resources> <Grid> <ComboBox Height="26" Margin="12,75,12,0" Name="comboBox1" VerticalAlignment="Top"> <s:String>Red</s:String> <s:String>Blue</s:String> <s:String>Green</s:String> </ComboBox> <Button Height="28&quo

Expand the combobox and its items when it gets focus

Hi, I want to expand the size of the combobox whenever the combobox gets the Focus. I have used the following code to expand the combobox height. <Style TargetType="{x:Type ComboBox}">     <Style.Triggers>         <Trigger Property="IsKeyboardFocusWithin" Value="True">             <Setter Property="RenderTransform">                <Setter.Value>                    <ScaleTransform ScaleX="1" ScaleY="2" />                </Setter.Value>            </Setter>            <Setter Property="RenderTransformOrigin" Value="0.5,0.5"/>             <Setter Property="Panel.ZIndex" Value="99999"/>         </Trigger>     </Style.Triggers>  </Style>   Problem: When i put the focus on the Combobox first time, the combobox item list opened in normal mode. But if i again click on the combobox then combobx item list opened and also list items are expanded. But i want the combobox list item

sp_send_dbmail dashes separator line


I need to have an automated process to generate and send out csv data on a set schedule. Using the sp_send_dbmail routine is working great except for one small problem I am having trouble getting around.

I am specifying a query to be run and including the results as a file attachment. The customer wants a csv file with column names.

The attachment always includes a 'separator line' of dashes between the column header and the actual data. Is there any way to eliminate this line of dashes? When I use @query_result_header = 0 flag, it removes the line of dashes, but the column names are also removed as well.

I want to keep the column names, but just remove the line of dashes. Any ideas?


Appending Email Bodies to Multi-line list items


Hello all again!


I am working on another project that I have come up empty handed and wondered if anyone out there has any other answers.  I just got my incomming email to work in WSS 3.0.


Now I was wondering if there was a way to get the body of an incoming email message to be copied to a "Notes" Field in a list item on a site?


Here is what I have.  I have created a document library called email-in.  I am going to use this to bounce the emails off of.  I will configure this to recieve email.  However, once an email message is sent to it I would like to take the body of the email message and copy it to a multi-line text field I have in another corresponding list.


The way I was going to be correlating the two is by the "case" number that we deal with i.e. 00123456.  This matches a hyperlink description field that I have on the list item that I want to append the body of the email to.


Therefore, I would like to have system operate like this:  

Person creates and email with the subject field contents of 00123456.  Then the message is placed in the body of the email.  After this the email will be received by the system and the system will look at the subject and se

WPF ComboBox disable items



Here are a comboBox with some items, some of them are disabled, you cannot select a disabled item by mouse, but you can select it by typing!





jQuery: Styling DropDownList Alternating Items (Rows)

In the following example, I will show how you can style any asp:dropdownlist very easily.

The example demonstrates how you can change alternating row items background color, using the fadeTo() to add a nice touch in the dropdownlist. You can change alt rows with a couple lines.

Hide a repeater in ASP.NET C# if the DataSource contains no items?

I have an ASP.NET page that uses a repeater nested within another repeater to generate a listing of data. It's to the effect of the following:
In the (C#) code-behind I'm basically using LINQ to pull a listing of information from an XML document and bind that information to the first repeater.

Searching for the answer to this, it seems the method is to determine whether the data for the nested repeater is empty. If it is, then you set the visibility of the repeater to false.

Creating SharePoint items with CreateItemActivity

Instead of creating new list items from code in your workflow you can use CreateItemActivity. CreateItemActivity can be used for creating list items or files. Properties of interest for this activity are the following (most of them are self-explanatory):

Creating Sites/Lists/List Items under Current User Context in SharePoint By Using SPUserToken

Usually we do this by performing the action under RunWithElevatedPrivileges method and updating the listitem using SPListItem.SystemUpdate() method (see here). but this approach has its own flaws like (RunWithElevatedPrivileges will run under system account, we cannot use SystemUpdate for SPSite,SPWeb,SPList, since it runs under system we will "CreatedBy" by as SystemAccount).

HttpContext.Items and Server.Transfer/Execute

The problem was basically that when a Server.Transfer call was applied the script container (and also various ClientScriptProxy script embedding routines) would potentially fail to load up the specified scripts.

Get pixel format, raw format, property id list and property items image in VB.net - C#.net.

n this simple article you will learn that how we can get pixel format, raw format, property id list and property items image in VB and C#.net.

Get Pixel Format:

Image consists of pixels to get the format of the pixel we have a property named pixel format. This property returns an enumeration of pixel format. This enumeration tells the pixel format.

To demonstrate make a window application. Drag one button and a picture box on form.

Now write the following code on Button click event:

ListViewControl - how to group items by their value, for eg. date range



I have a table containing courses, columns are 

Name - "Yoga Classes"

DateStart - "2/23/2010"

DateEnd - "2/24/2010"

I am using ListView Control to bind it, is there a way to display them and group them by Month? 

for eg.


Piano Class (10th Jan 2010 - 11th Jan 2010)
Guitar Class (10th Jan 2010 - 11th Jan 2010)


Yoga Class (15th Feb 2010 - 16th Feb 2010)

Thanks for help.

Adding new items to a Repeater control with transitions?



I am currently in the process of writing a facebook type 'activity feed' for a site. Currently I am binding the last 10 items to a repeater control, which contains a usercontrol representing each item. This works fine but there are a couple of requiremnts that are giving me problems and wondered if the the good people of the forum could make some suggestions.

The requirement is that when a user clicks a refresh button any new events are added to the top of the list, the previous items drop down and the equivalent number of old items drop off the bottom, all with nice slider transitions.

I have put the repeater inside of an update control and are able to handle the transitions by using RegisterStartup script to drop jquery calls onto the page for the slider. However I cannot find a way to dynamically add or remove new datarows to the repeater. I need the old items to stay in the repeater and be pushed down by the new items, so completely refreshing the datasource seems like a bad idea.

I was thinking about maybe storing the datasource in the viewstate and adding rows to that, maybe with an extra column on the end which stores what transition is needed on the databind for my jquery, but there will be a 'View more items' link at the bottom of the page, so I am worried that the list could get pretty large and there

animate effect work but the render items are messed up.


Hi all,

     I have a very unique problem, humm i think. I am using a jquery effect that animate bounce effect, i have a line in my javascript pageLoad function $("#UserBrowserInfoDIV").show('bounce'); - the effects run smoothly but what it does is mess up the bolded text in the div. I have try the items inside the div without bolding and it works fine and no render problem but when bolded the text that are bolded is quite messed up, and barely readable.

Please let me know is there anything else i can do i really would like use this effect.

P.S all the effect have the same render problem, and i am using ie8 under compatibility mode.





Article commenting by line number


I'm wondering what's the best way to approach an online article system that allows users to comment by clicking on the line they are commenting about? Essentially the same way Adobe Acrobat works with comments where you can click anywhere and the text is saved for that location.

I'm assuming a mix of jQuery would be the crux of the interface. The system would need to save comments so that when another user logs in, they will also see the other comments but they can´t edit them - only add their own.

Any suggestions would be great.

New off line application working with sdf file. Need advice


Hey Folks

I am working on a project currently where I need to get data out of a 3rd party vendor's software that uses a .sdf file I looked this up and its a SQL CE file. I was hoping to just link to with with access but thats apparently not going to happen. I need to link to the database extract data from it to a csv file for later use. I also and most important I need to get the data from it and create a report that can be printed while on a customers site that my or may not have web access so I need for this program to be on and off line. I had my webapplication that I have been working on open and was able to bring up the sdf file under the server exploere however I can't seem to get anything out of it when I try to do grid views or detail views errors out.

Can I use one of Visual Studio projects to create this sort of applicaiton if so what would be the best approach. I would love to get an access odbc driver since office is allready installed on the employee's laptop's



LINQ to SQL - Validating if item is in Database, but if item is not items not inserting into databas



I am new to this, so bear with me.  I am writing an application in C# that uses LINQ to validate a datacontext off a textbox to see if the record exists already.  If the record does exist I inserted an if statement to advise the user that the record exists, if the record does not exist I would like to allow the record to be added to the database.  If I take out my else statement everything works fine as far as inserting goes, but I do not want to allow inserts in this scenario.  I have tried moving the if and else statement to different parts of the code but can't quite figure this one out.  Any help would be apprecaited, attached is the code.  This code is set to a button press.  As a matter of fact, if you see any other errors along the way please feel free to point them out.
