Blurry text in WPF - current status?

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 10, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WPF
 
Hi,   I was trying to find out if the blurry text I'm seeing in my WPF application could be due to something I'm doing wrong. But then I realized that other people's examples have it as well, and discovered several reported issues with blurry text rendering in WPF (all of them from some time ago) and I tried to find out whether a solution exists now. But I couldn't.   So, I guess this is the right place to ask: has this issue with blurry text rendering in WPF been addressed by now? Or do we really need to live with it (and hopefully our customers too)?   Although I noticed it right away, I never paid much attention to it because I thought "it's probably a setting somewhere", but so it seems not? Or has this changed?   Here at home, I'm on an "old" analog 19" monitor (1280x1024), and I tried all combinations of "smooth edges of screen fonts". It also shows on the Vista-based machine at the office with a 24" LCD screen.   What am I missing?   Koen   ---------- System specs: CPU: AMD XP 2400+ RAM memory: 1024 MB Graphics card: ASUS V9520 VS OS: Windows XP SP2 DirectX: 9.0c

SSIS Text was truncated with status value 4

  
I am developing a SSIS package, trying to update an existing SQL table from a CSV flat file. All of the columns are successfully updating except for one column. If I ignore this column on truncate, my package completes successfully. So I know this is a truncate problem and not error. This column is empty for almost every row. However, there are a few rows where this field is 200-300 characters. My data conversion task identified this field as a DT_WSTR, but from what I've read elsewhere maybe this should be DT_NTEXT. I've tried both and I even set the DT_WSTR to 500. But none of this fixed my problem. How can I fix? What data type should this column be in my SQL table? Error: 0xC02020A1 at Data Flow Task 1, Source - Berkeley812_csv [1]: Data conversion failed. The data conversion for column "Reason for Delay in Transition" returned status value 4 and status text "Text was truncated or one or more characters had no match in the target code page.". Error: 0xC020902A at Data Flow Task 1, Source - Berkeley812_csv [1]: The "output column "Reason for Delay in Transition" (110)" failed because truncation occurred, and the truncation row disposition on "output column "Reason for Delay in Transition" (110)" specifies failure on truncation. A truncation error occurred on the specified object of the specified component. Error

Content Query WebPart shows page items with status "draft", and page items that current user does no

  

Hi,

I have this issue that CQWP is rendring items that it should not render. I test this with a read-only user, that should NOT see draft pages or pages with different permissions. But the read-only user do see the items, but when I click on the link I get access denied. This access denied is correct, but why does the page items appear in the CQWP at all?

Facts:

1) I use OOTB CQWP (inherits from ContentByQueryWebPart in my .webpart file) : "<type name="Microsoft.SharePoint.Publishing.WebControls.ContentByQueryWebPart ....." and I have my custom xsl to get the look and feel I need

2) The issue with page items showing when status = drafts only appear when using the PublishingExpirationDate field. When I try creating new pages and give them status draft by using "check in to share draft" (logged on as an contributer/approver user), this item wil NOT appear in the CQWP for the read-only user. When I change a pages' status from approved to draft, this item will still be shown in the CQWP, but this will point correctly to the published version. But after the pages' expired date (PublishingExpirationDate) is expired, the page gets status "draft" (handeled by a timer job I guess), and this page item will still be rendered in the CQWP, but sending the read-only user to an access-

Accessing a text file in the current directory?

  

I want to distribute a text file with my WPF application. When the application starts the text file is automatically read in the loading event.

What I would like to do is to place this text file in the application directory. However using the click once installer the application is installed in a random directory that reads '\appData\localapp\....' I am not able to know in advance what the installation directory will be.  

What I would like to do is to be able to get the directory of where the ClickOnce application is placed? This way users can place the Clickonce files anywhere they want and I can also have the text file placed in the same directory Then when my application starts I can read the text file.

Thanks,


Dave


How to get the current status of a specified thread?

  

I found on MSDN the following remark with ThreadStatus property

Remarks

The ThreadState property provides more specific information than the IsAlive property.

Important note Important

Thread state is only of interest in debugging scenarios. Your code should never use thread state to synchronize the activities of threads.

AutoCompleteStringCollection for text box in DataGridView 2.0

  
I have been searching for a way to have autocomplete in a DataGridTextBox
object. There does not appear to be an obvious way to do this like you would
for a TextBox outside of a grid using the AutoCompleteCustomSource. Any
thoughts on how I can add this collection? :)

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).

Built-in Functions - Text and Image Functions in SQL Server

  
Text and image functions operate on TEXT, NTEXT and IMAGE data types. These data types are deprecated with SQL Server 2005 and should be replaced by VARCHAR(MAX), NVARCHAR(MAX) and VARBINARY(MAX) when possible. Alternatively you can also consider storing large string values using XML data type. Text and image functions are nondeterministic.

Future versions of SQL Server will not support TEXT, NTEXT and IMAGE data types. Columns with TEXT / NTEXT data type do not support commonly used string functions such as LEN, LEFT, RIGHT, etc. Furthermore, due to the large size of TEXT data you''re likely to see performance issues if you store such data in the database. However, at times you can''t help but use the TEXT / NTEXT / IMAGE data types (for example when supporting 3rd party databases when you cannot change the schema) - this is when text and image functions come in handy.
