prevent progress bar from flickering

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 10, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Windows Application
 
I'm using a progress bar control on a .NET Windows forms application under VS 2010.  Every time I change the value property of the control to cause the progress bar to advance, it repaints the whole control, not just the part of the control that needs repainting.  This causes flicker, which looks really bad.  Is there an easy way to prevent this?  I saw some articles with inconvenient solutions such as deriving another control from the progress bar, and/or painting the control myself, but I'm hoping there's a simpler solution that I'm missing.

The progress bar is great for keeping users informed about the progress of a task. Unfortunately, there's no progress bar element built into ASP.NET, so Dino Esposito solves that problem with his ProgressPanel control.

Prevent loading big images ..

  

Hi


i need to prevent loading big images e.g max 100KB

but i only store url


1. user put url with image (i remember this string in database not image itself)

this cause that i can not check image size before store url in database

because user can store url and after this operation put bigger file at that location)

2. my web page generate some different image based on first image


and i need to load portion of image 

to stream and set buffer size to 100KB + 1 Byte

if stream is larger than 100KB that user put bigger file 

how can i accomplish that?


FileStream can not use URI as location only disc location

what should i use instead?


please help,

Progress Bar with Survey

  

I got the below lireature from http://doc.essentialobjects.com/library/1/eo.web.progressbar.aspx. The only thing I have found this good for is if there is a task or process that you want to show the user the status of how much is completed. In my case I just want to show the user how far along they are in a survey. I am having trouble understanding this so that I can write client side JavaScript API to get this to work and do  what I need to do, which is increase the progress meter and show how far along in the survey the user is. It says to use ProgressBar.setValue(value), but I dont know where to place it in my application, nor what value to pass, to where?  Any help with this is greatly appreciated.

How do I prevent displaying membership of an AD group in Colleague Tracker web part?

  

I'm a big fan of the Colleague Tracker web part in MOSS 2007 My Sites, especially the option to show 'Membership Changes'. This is often useful in highlighting that a colleague has been added to a certain AD group.

We now want to hide the membership of certain AD groups from the colleague tracker. For example, if an AD group called 'Project X' is created, we don't want membership of the group broadcast throughout the My Sites where colleagues are tracking colleagues.

My first thought was that we could use AD to 'deny read' on the 'Project X' AD group to all SharePoint related service accounts. This does not appear to have worked, although perhaps the configuration is more complex? The best approach would seem to be to prevent the group membership data ever being imported from AD to the SSP, hence my 'deny read' approach.

Has anyone successfully implemented this, or does anyone have any better ideas?

Thanks


How to make the Workflow Status remain "In Progress" when a task is "Rejected"

  

Hi Sir/Mam,

I have a work flow running on a list, when a task is Rejected at a stage then the Workflow status is set to "Completed". Instead of this I want the Status to remain as "In Progress", so that in future after the modification of the document the Approver may Approve it and then take it to the next stages. This is not possible if the Workflow is set to "Completed".

Can you please suggest an easy way to do this

Thanks in Advance

How to detect and prevent new browser instance

  

Hi Folks,

I have a problem w/ a web app which is probably fairly common, but I cannot find any solutions anywhere. Hopefully someone will have an idea.

The web app in question provides a UI for editing a client (in the business sense, not the browser sense), identified by a ClientID.  I store the ClientID in Session, which gets passed from page to page, along with a number of other pieces of data in Session.  Works great.

The problem is that if the user opens a new browser window using Ctrl N or File->New Window (in IE), the new window comes up with the same page as the current page, with the same session info. Then if the user navigates to a different client in the 2nd window, the ClientID in session refers to the new client. If they go back to the original browser window and save, the original client gets saved using the 2nd ClientID, and all hell breaks loose, because now the data from the two jobs are intertwined.

I have enabled trace and verified that the new browser window uses the same SessionID as the original.  If an entirely new instance of IE is opened, it has a different SessionID, so is not a problem.  I have not yet investigated other browsers, such as Chrome or Firefox.

Is there any way to determine if a browser instance is opened for a web app which is already open in
