Playing a movie inside a media element




The code below doesn't work for me.  The window displays fine but the movie file does not play inside the media element.  I'm new to WPF and found the snippet of code in the help files, but can't get it to work.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. 

<Window x:Class="PhotoTool.UploadStatus"
  Title="Upload Progress" Height="397" Width="596" Name="uploadStatus" WindowStyle="SingleBorderWindow" WindowStartupLocation="CenterOwner" Icon="pack://application:,,,/Resources/PhotoToolIcon.ico" ResizeMode="NoResize">
    <GroupBox Header="Summary" Height="171" Margin="6,6,6,0" Name="groupBoxSummary" VerticalAlignment="Top">
    <MediaElement Height="171" Margin="6,0,264,5" Name="mediaElement" VerticalAlignment="Bottom" LoadedBehavior="Play" UnloadedBehavior="Stop" Source="pack://application:,,,/Resources/zen apple.mov">

wpf media element fast forward



I am using media element to play the movie.My current fast forward and fast rewind logic is as below.

MediaElement.position = MediaElement.position + TimeSpan.FromSeconds(10);(for fast forward) MediaElement.position = MediaElement.position - TimeSpan.FromSeconds(10);(for fast rewind)

During fast forward when the movie is over, Media Ended event is called up. I thought that it stays at the last frame where as movie ended event is called and coming out of movie.

During fast rewind, it statys at the first frame of the movie. Any idea why it is happening like that? Any suggestions/ideas to display last frame of the movie during Fast forward.



Media Element is not getting stretched


Hi I have a grid. In one of the grid cell i have a label and the label has mediaelement. When I drag the window, the label is getting stretched where as the medial element inside the label is not stretched. Its size remains static. What is the mistake i have done. This is the following code


<Border Grid.Row="1" Grid.Column="0"Background="Black" HorizontalAlignment="Stretch" VerticalAlignment="Stretch">
            <MediaElement Height="Auto" Name="CurrentVideo" HorizontalAlignment="Stretch" VerticalAlignment="Stretch" Stretch="UniformToFill"
                      Source="EvolvingJuliaSet.wmv" LoadedBehavior="Manual" MediaOpened="CurrentVideo_MediaOpened" Width="Auto">


UpdatePanel is not a known element - message when upgrading to 1.0 ajax


It worked on one of my old pages.  I change the web.config, renamed all the <asp.

On some aspx page it doesn't recognize the updatepanel.  It only does on one page.  If I create a new aspx page with a different name - then it works.

Should I just create a new web project ajax - then copy all my code into there?  Or is there a way to get those old pages to recognize the new ajax controls?

Could not find default endpoint element that references contract 'CurrencyProxy.CurrencyServiceSoap



I created 2 projects in my solution:

  1. Classic asp.net web service (asmx)
  2. Class library project which references service
  3. web site project which references class library project
  4. Windows app project which references service.

Both projects were created in 3.5 framework and in Visual Studio 2008 Beta 2.

I added web service reference to Class library project. When it asked for namespace I typed "CurrencyProxy". Projects build ok, but when I run web app, Class library throws an error: Could not find default endpoint element that references contract 'CurrencyProxy.CurrencyServiceSoap' in the ServiceModel client configuration section. This might be because no configuration file was found for your application, or because no endpoint element matching this contract could be found in the client element.

I believe it has something to do with app.config in Class library project. Here is part from app.config:

<binding name="CurrencyServiceSoap" closeTimeout=

'element.className' is null or not an object



I just downloaded the project, compiled it and ran it right out of the box and when I put the mouse pointer over or remove the mouse pointer from either MenuItem in the menu demo, I generate this error:

'element.className' is null or not an object

It points to this javascript method:

updateClassName: function(operation, element, name, value) {
        this[operation + 'String'](
                function() {
                    return element.className;
                function(newValue) {
                    element.className = newValue;

Modify Menu adapter to show selected


Hey, I need some help modifying the menu adapter code to give child <ul> elements a class value indicating that the parent is selected. It should render like this:
