Adding a Callback to the Window Title Property

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 10, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WPF
Hi all-   I have a quick question.  I have a customized window, based on the Window object.  Is there a way to create a Callback handler on the Title Property, so that I can basically capture and perform my own customized actions when the Title property is changed?  I have no problems adding custom dependency properties (as below), but adding a callback to an existing property from the base class is where I am a little lost and need guidance.   Thanks for any help. Chris   public class WindowBase : Window { // Several Dependency Properties exist as below, with callbacks which trigger on the change of the property // The trick is to find a way to add a callback to the Title property of Window public string Caption { get { return (string)GetValue(CaptionProperty); } set { SetValue(CaptionProperty, value); } } public static readonly DependencyProperty CaptionProperty = DependencyProperty.Register("Caption", typeof(string), typeof(WindowBase), new PropertyMetadata(OnCaptionChanged));

How Do I Not Include: myControl.GetType.GetProperty("Text") When No Property Window Setting?

Hi All, Posted below is code I'm using to generate a list of controls that have either a "Text" or "Caption" property. However, for certain controls in the resulting list, the property setting (Text/Caption) does not appear in the "Property Window" of the IDE when that control is selected. One example of this is the Systems.Windows.Forms.PictureBox control. Is there a way I can determine this and if so - how do I exclude these control(s) from my list?     Private Sub cmdValidateControls_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles cmdValidateControls.Click         txtResults.Clear()         For Each ctrl As Object In Me.Controls             LogControl(ctrl)         Next     End Sub     Private Sub LogControl(ByVal ctrlIn As Object)         If System.Diagnostics.Debugger.IsAttached Then             If (Not ctrlIn.GetType.GetProperty("Text") Is Nothing) Or (Not ctrlIn.GetType.GetProperty("Caption") Is Nothing) Then                 txtRes

SPListItem Title URL property??

Hello, I am not exactly sure how to express this query. I have a list with items, the items have titles. When the title link is clicked, it displays a form. I would like to change this behavior and have it act like a URL to a site page. I have searched for the morning and day and have come up with this: web.AllowUnsafeUpdates = true; SPListItemCollection itemCollection = list.Items; item = itemCollection.Add(f.ServerRelativeUrl,SPFileSystemObjectType.File, "Name of item"); item["Title"] = "Name of item"; SPFieldUrlValue url_value = new SPFieldUrlValue(item["Title"].ToString()); url_value.Url = "http://www.google.com"; item[SPBuiltInFieldId.Title] = url_value; item.Update(); web.AllowUnsafeUpdates = false; Now, that is what many blogs, examples have as 'the way", however when this runs the item title is: http://www.google.com , http://www.google.com and when clicked does not go to google...but the form again.   Do I need a custome content type to express the Title as a URL?  Or does it have this property out of the box? So frustrated, maxwell

Adding XAML via control property

Hi, I'm attempting to create a custom chart control that has 1 or many line series within it. My question is, is it possible to create a property of that control, that when checked in the designer, will automatically add the line series xaml within the chart series? For example, if you click on the "Add Test Series" check box, which is of type boolean, it will then add <chartingToolkit:LineSeries /> into the xaml of the control as well as to the series of the control.   <local:TestChartControl> <chartingToolkit:LineSeries /> </local:TestChartControl>     Thanks  

Changes to Properties in the Property Window not Updating in HTML Control


I'm using VWD 2010 Express and have found that when I change a property like AutoPostBack from within the property window the corresponding tag (<asp:TextBox...>) was not updated with the property change to the tag.

Is there a setting that I can change in the VWD properties that will enable changes through the property window for a control to automatically update the HTML tag for that control?

When adding new calendar item the title field is missing - MOSS 2007



A staff member just noticed that when adding a new item to a vacation calendar we have set-up - the Title column is missing.  They will finish creating the new calendar item and then when they go to edit it the Title column appears and they can fill it in.

Can figure out what caused this or how to fix - any ideas?

When I create a new test calendar the title column is displayed properly when creating new item - so not sure what happened with this calendar.

Hope someone has come across this before.

Thanks so much!

Adding back deleted User Profile Property

Programmatically adding user profile properties fails when adding a multivalued property


I have written a console application that adds a custom section to the User Profile Properties and then adds properties under that section. The code works fine when adding CoreProperties of type string (Single Value) and mapping each property to an Active Directory field. However the code always fails when mapping a string (Multi Value) property to an AD property. I have researched the errors I present below but cannot see what the solution might be.


    private static void AddCustomProperties(string strUrl)
      Console.WriteLine("Adding custom properties under section '" + DisplayName + "'.......");
      using (SPSite siteColl = new SPSite(strUrl))

        SPServiceContext serviceContext = SPServiceContext.GetContext(siteColl);
        UserProfileConfigManager upcm = new UserProfileConfigManager(serviceContext);
        CorePropertyManager cpm = upcm.ProfilePropertyManager.GetCoreProperties();
        ProfilePropertyManager ppm = up
