ASP.NET: Web Forms Let You Drag And Drop Your Way To Powerful Web Apps


Web Forms have the potential to change Web programming by introducing a new programming model built around server-side controls-a model in which controls render their own UIs by generating HTML to return to clients and firing events that are handled by server-side scripts. Since all the action takes place on the Web server, virtually any browser can run a Web Forms app. And thanks to Visual Studio .NET, building a Web Forms app is a lot like using Visual Basic: just drop a control onto a form then write an event handler. This article describes the Web Forms programming model, how it fits with ASP.NET, and introduces DataGrid, TextBox, and other classes in the .NET Framework class library.

RemotingException when drag and drop from one instance to a second instance of Windows Forms applica


I have a Windows Forms sample app that we use to illustrate drag and drop functionality with our external application. The sample app contains two list boxes, a DragSource and a DropTarget. The DragSource is populated with data that can be dragged and dropped to the DropTarget, or to our external application. The sample app is written in Visual Studio 2008 using a Windows Forms Application that links to a legacy C++ library.

What works:

1. Dragging and dropping between the two listboxes in the same instance

2. Dragging and dropping between the sample app and our external application

What doesn't work and hope to get your feedback on:

1. Dragging and dropping between the sample app and another instance of the sample app fails to read data from the MemoryStream and indicates the following exception: "A first chance exception of type 'System.Runtime.Remoting.RemotingException' occurred in mscorlib.dll"

2. Dragging from the DragSource indicates the following exceptions although the DropTarget and our external application are able to read the stream and display the information.

A first chance exception of type 'System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException' occurred in System.Windows.Forms.dll; A first chance exception of

treeview with drop down list on each node


Hi there,

I'm looking for a treeview with drop down list on each node. the treeview should be dynamicllay created on server side. Each node will have a drop down list and each item of the list will have a different color. When I create the tree on client side, I will have to select dropdown list accroding to a data table.

Also, on the client side, the user should be able to select each node and its leaf to group set the drop down list for one branch.

Is there any controller I can use rather than write my one tree?

Scott Howlett and Jeff Dunmall: Drag and Drop Data Manipulation Powered by XML


Building on the browser-based org chart featuring VML (Vector Markup Language) described previously in Microsoft Internet Developer, this article takes you through the process of refining that sample app by using XML, XSL, and JScript code to create a new, improved version. Drag and drop editing is added to the org chart interface thanks to built-in support found in Internet Explorer 5.0. XML and JScript allow data manipulated on the screen to be saved back to the server in its native format. The final product of this combination of XML, XSL, and VML is a high performance, scalable Internet app that uses processing on the client to reduce stress for the server.

(Imperfect) Solution to TreeView Postback / Client-Side Node Selection Issue


I've seen this question posted on all corners of the web... "How do I disable "AutoPostBack" on the ASP.NET 2.0 TreeView control?!"  Unfortunately, most of the answers either don't work, miss the point (don't work right), or boil down to "You can't do it."  I happen to know that this behavior worked perfectly in the IEWebControls TreeView that Microsoft released as an add-on prior to ASP.NET 2.0, however.  So I set out to find a solution for the ASP.NET 2.0 TreeView issue.

In a nutshell, the behavior that I and others are looking for is to have a TreeView rendered in a page that allows the user to expand, contract, and select nodes within the TreeView without causing a PostBack to the server.  This implies two things: (1) the most recently-selected node should be recorded as the currently-selected node [i.e., at PostBack time, the most-recently selected node is actually represented as the SelectedNode]; and (2) the selected node should exhibit the SelectedNodeStyle as specified in the TreeView declaration.

It appears that the TreeView engineers saw only two possible outcomes from selecting a leaf node in a tree: (1) immediately posting back to the server, or (2) immediately navigating to another web page.  They apparently did not consider option (3) just allowing selection in-place on the client, while waiting for a click on so

Listview - Drag and Drop?


Hey everyone, I have a treeview and a listview on my ASP.NET application. However, with treeview I can drag and drop it to where ever I want it on my page. I tried this with listview, but it wouldn't let me. Listview automatically positions itself along the left side of my application. What I'm wanting to do is put my treeview along the right side and then put my treeview along the left side of the application. Any ideas on why I can't do this or suggestions on how I might be able to do this?

By the way, I'm running Visual Studio 2010 and using .NET FRAMEWORK 4.

Drag and Drop data binding and Enums

I'm using Visual Studio 2010 to design a simple WPF application. I created a simple class, with some Enum property, and added the class as a new data source, then dragged and dropped it from the Data sources window as a DataGrid. The result is a data grid that works properly, except for enum handling. Obviously, I want enums to be displayed as combo boxes, so I set the option. The problem is: I get a combo box column, but it is NOT populated with the Enum's values, instead only the current value is displayed and the user can't change it. This behavior seems completely useless to me. Am I doing something wrong here, or is there another explanation for this? Why isn't the designer handling enums in a sensible way? Another problem is, if I choose to drag the class as "Details". Again everything works except enums. I get a standalone combobox, but it displays the values of the property from the entire list, and choosing a different item in the combobox changes the active bound property. Once again, useless behavior - I expect the designer to create a combobox populated with values from the Enum, and for it to act like every other control in a master-details relationship - choosing a different value changes the state of the current item. Please advise.

GiveFeedback @ Drag and drop

How can i update treeview root node every time based on the record entries

Drag Drop adorner visual performance

Hi, I've been modifying my application based on a MSDN blog post on WPF drag and drop.   While I found the blog post very helpful, what I've noticed when trying to use a visual for a drag indicator (rather than either a default or custom cursor), is that the visual doesn't 'keep up' with the cursor movement.  That is, if I move the mouse quickly during a drag/drop operation, there is a space between the visual adorner being moved around and the cursor.  When I stop movement (but still have the mouse button down so the drag/drop operation is still active), the visual 'catches up' with the standard cursor.  And if I were to move the mouse slower, then the standard cursor and the drag drop visual positions are kept in sync. This lag between the movement of the 'real' cursor and the visual is even more obvious in my application than in blog post sample application, although it is present in the sample application as well.  My question is, is there anyway to improve the performance of a custom drag drop operation using a visual such that I can quickly move around the mouse and not see a gap between the cursor and the visual? Thanks, Notre

Drag and Drop

Hi,   I have been trying to implement drag and drop in my ListView for a while now. There's a number of examples floating around but none of them have really been working for me. I have manage to combine MouseLeftDown and MouseMove to make it possible to drag one item. However, when multiple items are selected it only drags one item (since it changes selection when the MouseLeftDown is triggered).   I haven't stumbled upon a good solution to this yet. I need to be able to drag one or more items and drop them either in the listview itself or some other control. I want a visual indication of the items being dragged as well as some sort of line to tell where the items will be inserted into the listview.   Does anyone have any suggestions on how to go forward? What magic with the mouse events should I preform?   Thanks!

Treeview - how to change node icon depending on node contents

I have a treeview in an MVVM application: <TreeView ItemsSource="{Binding RootNodes}"> <TreeView.ItemContainerStyle> <Style TargetType="{x:Type TreeViewItem}"> <Setter Property="IsExpanded" Value="{Binding IsExpanded, Mode=TwoWay}" /> <Setter Property="IsSelected" Value="{Binding IsSelected, Mode=TwoWay}" /> <Setter Property="FontWeight" Value="Normal" /> <Style.Triggers> <Trigger Property="IsSelected" Value="True"> <Setter Property="FontWeight" Value="Bold" /> </Trigger> </Style.Triggers> </Style> </TreeView.ItemContainerStyle> <TreeView.ItemTemplate> <HierarchicalDataTemplate ItemsSource="{Binding Children}"> <TextBlock Text="{Binding NodeName}" /> </HierarchicalDataTemplate> </TreeView.ItemTemplate> </TreeView> The treeview is bound to an ObservableCollection called RootNodes. Elements in the RootNodes collection expose a member "NodeName" which is the text for the nodes in the treeview at runtime. They also expose a member called "NodeType", effectively an enumeration that indicates what type of icon should be displa
