Center a picturebox in a screeen sized panel

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 08, 2010    Points: 0   Category :.NET Framework
I am placing (in code) a Picturebox inside a panel.  The Dock property of the panel is Fill to fil.  The picturebox is set to a fixed size and the image to Zoom.  I want the picturebox to appear in the dead center of the screen, but it always appears centered vertically, but all the way on the left side of the screen.  Nothing I do will move it horizontally into the center.  Not sure what i am doing wrong. pictureBox1 = new PictureBox(); pictureBox1.Size = new System.Drawing.Size(1024, 1024); pictureBox1.MaximumSize = new System.Drawing.Size(1024, 1024); pictureBox1.BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.Gray; pictureBox1.Dock = DockStyle.None; pictureBox1.Anchor = (AnchorStyles.Top | AnchorStyles.Bottom | AnchorStyles.Right | AnchorStyles.Left); pictureBox1.SizeMode = PictureBoxSizeMode.Zoom; pictureBox1.BorderStyle = BorderStyle.None; panel1.Controls.Add(pictureBox1);

Form application with Panel and PictureBox controls: Panel.Clear() does NOT clean. (in C#)


I have been developing a Windows Form application with a Panel and many PictureBox controls. PictureBox controls are created dynamically in the Panel control. The initial display works fine, say with 100 PictureBoxes in the Panel control. Then, the Panel control is cleared by "this.panel.CLear()", for the next display, say new 50 images in the PictureBoxes.

The current situation is that the second display (with new 50 images) seem to be completed AFTER the first 100 images, although the first 100 images are cleaned. This means that the first area where the first 100 images displayed is blank, and the new 50 images are displayed after the blank/white area.

My question is how to display the new images at the beginning of the Panel control.

Cutting Edge: Context-Sensitive PictureBox Controls


Great ideas are timeless. A long time ago in Microsoft Systems Journal Paul DiLascia demonstrated a neat trick to display context-sensitive tooltips floating over pictures. As the user moved the mouse over the picture, the tooltip control updated its text to reflect the name of the pointed figure.

Extreme ASP.NET: Tools of the Trade: Application Center Test


When you sit down to write an ASP. NET application, how much time do you spend thinking about performance? It's unfortunate, but for most developers performance is an afterthought. Performance planning and design really need to be front and center.

Treeview problems in Update panel



I tried using this code, on a Treeview inside an update panel, which is populated dynamically in code behind. 

However, it doesnt give me the required functionality.

Following is my aspx code for the TreeView and the TreeView populating logic:


<div id="treelist">

Accordion Control with Panel...Add an Update Panel?


I have an accordion control in my web site.  And in one of the panels, I have a drop down list box where, when the user selects an item, it updates the labels right below the ddlistbox.  I have it so that it maintains the scroll position when the ddlistbox has an autopostback, but it's very obvious that the whole page posts back.

My question is, can I/should I just enclose the ddlistbox and the labels (and a couple of text boxes) in an AJAX update panel?  I already have a ToolScriptManager (because of the accordion control), so I don't need to have another script manager, right?  I can just put the update panel (with the other controls inside of it) right in the accordion panel, right?  Then when the ddlistbox posts back it won't have the delay of the whole page posting back?  And it'll still execute the event handler for the listbox selection change?

Does this sound right?  I'm just looking to make the post back "invisible", and I would like to do a partial postback of just these few controls.

Thanks in advance! :)

Trying to set update panel trigger programmatically


 I have a recursive sub that finds a dropdown list and sets up an AsyncPostbackTrigger for an update panel. I have tried calling this sub both from page_init and page_load 

If the dropdownlist is within the update panel, eveything works fine. If the dropdown list is not in the updatepanel I get error

A control with ID 'ddlPersonFilter' could not be found for the trigger in UpdatePanel 'up1'. In both cases the sub does find the dropdown list and executes the code to set up the trigger. Thanks for your help.

    Private Sub SetUpdatePanelTrigger(ByVal oControl As Control)
        For Each ctrl As Control In oControl.Controls
            If TypeOf ctrl Is DropDownList Then
                If CType(ctrl, DropDownList).ID = "ddlPersonFilter" Then
                    Dim thisddl As New DropDownList
                    Dim thistrigger As New AsyncPostBackTrigger
                    thisddl = ctrl
                    thistrigger.EventName = "SelectedIndexChanged"
                    thistrigger.ControlID = thisddl.ID
                    Exit Sub
                End If
                If ctrl.HasControls Then
                End If
            End If

Ajax Asyncfileupload doesn't work as soon as I put it in a control


Hi guys,

I can't get my <ajax:asyncfileupload> working and I don't see why...

When outside any panel or table it is working well, but as soon as I put it in a <asp:panel> or table I get a strange error which seems to be on client-side but I don't understand what's happen here. Here is the code and code-behind and Javascript.

Here's the error: 


Here's my front-code:

<%@ Page Language="VB" MasterPageFile="~/masterpages/mpSqueletton.master" AutoEventWireup="false" CodeFile="frmAdmGestSocietes.aspx.vb" Inherits="adm_frmAdmGestSocietes" title="Untitled Page" %>
