Problem with Binding Dictionary to Combo Box Control

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 10, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WPF
Hi All,I am trying to figure out how to bind <Key,Value> pair to Combo Box Control in WPF. By now i have found that the following code do not hold Keys in the comboBox:[vb Code]Dim MyDictionary as Dictionary(OF String,String)MyDictionary.Add("Key1","Value1")MyDictionary.Add("Key2","Value2") ..etc.'***** MyComboBox is ComboBox control ******MyComboBox.ItemSource =  MyDictionary.Values[xmal]<xmls:ComboBox x:Name="MyComboBox" />Doing the above process does not fulfill my purpose of capturing keys. Example if i want to get the "Key" for "selectedItem" then i cannot since i have not binded it.Can anyone suggest me a solution? If anyone can provide me with a xmal and code behind that would be great!!!THanks in Advance.

Problem binding business objects to custom user control properties

I have created a user control (supplierPicker) intended to allows a supplier database to be searched and a supplier selected. I want to be able to use this control in a number of other user controls, by binding the suppplierID property of the supplierPicker to a supplierID property in a business object, which is set as the datacontext of the parent user control. When I do this, and there is a supplierID specified in the business ofbject, the binding sets the supplierID in the supplierPicker control and it shows the correct supplier name in the textbox. However when the supplierID DependencyProperty is changed from within the supplierPicker the newly selected supplier name is shown in the TextBox, but the SupplierID does not propogate back to the business object. Other controls on the parent form work fine, so the binding to the business object seems to be ok. Any pointers as to what I'm doing wrong here would be grately appreciated.  This one has been driving me nuts for days! Snipped code for the supplier picker:         public partial class SupplierPicker : UserControl, INotifyPropertyChanged     {         public static DependencyProperty SupplierIDProperty;         public event PropertyChangedEventHandler PropertyChan

I am restoring my asp 2.0 app from a source control project to my local drive.

ASP.net 2.0.

The source control add-in (Harvest) is not working correctly so I retrieving and saving my web app

I finally put all the pieces of the web app back together but now when I compile my app I get the following message:

Build (web): Could not load the assembly 'App_Web_myApplication.master.cdcab7d2'. Make sure that it is compiled before accessing the page.

Will I have to start over ?

Thanks for your insights !

Problem with Wizard Control



I have a wizard, which contains a series of custom user controls as steps. Also I am using the step navigation template to add in the navigation buttons.

However, due to some steps needing a little time to load fully due to web service calls and having to add some dynamic steps, I would like to disable the navigation buttons until the next step has been loaded and change the text on the "Next Button" to "loading...". Is there away I can do this perhaps with JavaScript or is there away I could do this with an AJAX control? If so, does anyone have an example I could use?


AJAX rating control on DataRepeater problem



 I am using a DataRepeater control to display records from a database. I have placed an AJAX rating control in the repeater. The control works fine for the first record in the data repeater but it does not work for the rest of the records. The problem is that the control renders fine on the screen but I cannot click it - the mouse changes when hovering over it, but the control does nothing, not even when I click it. The first item works ok though. Any ideas what could be the problem?

 Thanks a lot

Problem with User Control Properties


I've been trying to figure out a problem that I've had for the past week and believe that the issue is something with a user control that I created. In short, the properties for the user control are recognized by intelisense when I register the control and then add it in the markup for a page. However, the values that I set in the markup are ignored by the class as if the properties don't exist.



Parent Page

 <%@ Register Src="../../controls/contactdetail.ascx" TagName="ContactDetail" TagPrefix="tfc" %>

<tfc:ContactDetail runat="server" ID="UserControlContactDetail" Title="Contact-Detail" ContactId="1580" EnableViewState="true" />   



User Control Class

Imports System.Data
Imports System.Data.SqlClient

Partial Class control_ContactDetail
    Inherits System.Web.UI.UserControl
    Public Property ContactId() As Integer
            Return _ContactId
        End Get
        Set(ByVal value As Integer)
            _ContactId = value
        End Set
    End Property
    Private _ContactId As Integer
    Public Property Title() As String
            Return _Title
        End Get

Binding an event method from a control in a seperate window

How would you bind a event method from a control back to a seperate window?  I have a ActiveX control hosted in a WindowsFormsIntegration wrapper.  That is operating in its own window along with all its events.  The properties of the control are handled by a class that defines the dependency objects (thanks Bob) to provide a view model between it and a window with controls for setting/getting those properties.  Since events constrained to Window 2, is it possible to bind the events back to Window 1?

Ajax Control Toolkit problem

Binding byte[] to image control in navigation application leaks

Hi there, I have a (minimal) navigation application with two pages. Page1 contains an image. Switching between pages is done via a buttonhandler in code behind, for instance, (this.NavigationService.Navigate(new Page2())) The image is loaded in code behind via: private void LoadImage() { string fileName = "./images/image.bmp"; if (!new FileInfo(fileName).Exists) throw new Exception("File name doesn't exist"); using (FileStream fs = new FileStream(fileName, FileMode.Open, FileAccess.Read)) { this.ImageData2 = new byte[fs.Length]; fs.Read(this.ImageData2, 0, System.Convert.ToInt32(fs.Length)); fs.Close(); } } ImageData2 is a byte[] property that sends a propertychange event on changing. ImageData2 is bound to an image in xaml: <Image Grid.Row="1" Source="{Binding Path=ImageData2, Mode=OneTime}"/> When we unload Page1 the following clean up code is executed private void Page_Unloaded(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e) { this.ImageData2 = null; GC.Collect(); GC.WaitForPendingFinalizers(); GC.Collect(); } Now, when I start changing pages, I expect the Page we leave to unload, so the GC removes the byte array. However, it doesn't. Am I missing something? Binding the image to a BitmapImage (ImageData1, as you might have guessed:-) ) doesn't leak.

wpf charting column series data binding problem

I'm trying to build a chart using the columnSeries from the wpf toolkit and I appear to be having trouble with the data binding. Here is the xaml: <Grid>    <chartingToolkit:ColumnSeries Height="18" HorizontalAlignment="Left" Margin="188,169,0,0" Name="columnSeries1" VerticalAlignment="Top" Width="18" IndependentValueBinding="{Binding Path=Date}" DependentValueBinding="{Binding Path=Value}" /></Grid> In the code behind, I'm calling a stored procedure and putting the result in a datatable like this: string connString = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["string"].ConnectionString;            using (SqlConnection cn = new SqlConnection(connString))            {                DataTable dt = new DataTable("T1");                cn.Open();                SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand("T1_sp", cn);                cmd.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure;                  SqlDataAdapter da = new SqlDataAdapter(cmd);                da.Fill(dt);                columnSeries1.ItemsSource = dt.DefaultView;                cn.Close();            } No error is being generated but I'm not getting a column chart either. If I take the same command and put it into a datagrid, it works fine. What do I need to do to get this into my column chart? If it helps,
