Get control over the other open windows to avoid resizing them

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 13, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Windows Application
Hi, I am developing C# WinForms application. I need to have control over the other open windows to avoid resizing them. If a user try to resize the open document say myDocument.doc, i.e., word file, then i should avoid resizing that window and set back to its previous size. I can get the Windows handle and Process ID and the File path of that document as well. Will any of these help me to solve my problem? Thanks for the help in advance. ViVidyadhar - V the destiny

Cutting Edge: A New Grid Control in Windows Forms


Grid controls are essential in many of today's apps. Until now, though, most developers using Visual Basic® have had to buy third-party components to get an effective, easy to use grid component. The Windows® Forms DataGrid turned out to lack too many features for the average developer.

Web-Aware Apps: Build Hyperlinks into Your Client App with the Windows Forms LinkLabel Control


LinkLabels are Windows Forms controls that enable a user to hyperlink to a URL that points to either the Web or the local directory system. While the SDK documentation discusses the control, it does not demonstrate how linking is accomplished, nor does it outline the power and flexibility the control provides. This article fills those gaps, showing how to link using the LinkLabel control. It also shows the flexibility of this control for the programmer using the .NET Framework. In addition, the author covers the large number of properties that allow you to customize your controls and accurately place them. Their built-in behaviors are also discussed, along with their use in both Visual Basic .NET and C#.

Open With Windows Explorer very slow


I am trying to troubleshoot an issue where some users of our SharePoint environment have problems using the open with windows explorer option in a document library.


For some users this works fine...  the explorer opens quickly and they can manage the documents.


For other users it takes up to 5 minutes before the explorer view opens.  During this time the browser becomes completly unresponsive.


As part of the troubleshooting process I tried taking the UNC path that is shown in the explorer view and tried using the Start -> Run and then entering in the path.   This seems to cause the complete desktop to freeze until the explorer window displays.


This is occuring on Windows XP SP Pro SP2 with both IE6 and IE7.   The desktops are on the same domain as the SharePoint servers.


Any thoughts on next steps?

Wickedly Strange .Net WPF Performance Problem Dissapeers with Windows 7 Performance Monitor Open

Hello Everyone, I have been developing one large and complex WPF application for 13 months now, all is going well and especially tonight as I now have some sort of clue or hint to what I have been seing now for quite some time.  Here is the rundown. 1) Running on i5 processor with 4GB RAM and Windows 7 2) The application was developed all in .Net 4.0, WPF C#. 3) It is heavily GUI intensive and also uses Entity Framework Detached for Database Access. 4) Is multi-threaded / multi-tasking. I am a nutcase when it comes to testing.  Since my graphical application heavily depends upon performance and determinsm (please somebody don't start with the C++ vs .Net on here) and has been performing great FOR THE MOST PART.  Every once in a while, I see that the application runs into the weeds for 5 or 6 seconds and the interface is unresponsive.  I have this thing tuned finely too.  Well now toward the end of development I have finally had to face that bug so to speak.  I can force it by clicking spastically on my buttons causing an event storm and making the system update the GUI.  SO!  Great start, I can now cause the problem on a regular basis (for you youngsters that is actually a good thing)!  Alright, so I start with the easiest investigative tool, CNTRL - ALT - DEL into Windows 7 Performance Monitor.  As you can tell from

Cash Drawer - Method Open threw an exception - Windows Service

Hi All, I'm getting the following exception while calling Open method of Cash Drawer object. Method Open threw an exception.  Could not read the device name key's default value, or could not convert the Programmatic ID it holds into a valid Class ID. Code:   class Class1 { CashDrawer _uniCashDrawer1 = null; DeviceInfo cashDrawerDevice1 = null; PosExplorer posExplorer = new Microsoft.PointOfService.PosExplorer();   public void ClaimCashDrawer() { cashDrawerDevice1 = posExplorer.GetDevice("CashDrawer", "testDrawer"); if (cashDrawerDevice1 != null) { _uniCashDrawer1 = posExplorer.CreateInstance(cashDrawerDevice1) as CashDrawer; if (_uniCashDrawer1 != null) { _uniCashDrawer1.StatusUpdateEvent += new StatusUpdateEventHandler(UniCashDrawer1_StatusUpdateEvent); _uniCashDrawer1.Open(); _uniCashDrawer1.Claim(0); _uniCashDrawer1.DeviceEnabled = true; } } } }   Tha above code works fine if you put the code in WindowsApplication in all POS systems. The same is working if you put the code in Windows Service in all other POS systems. The same is not working if you put the code in Windows Service in Aures Galeo POS systems.  Thanks in advance.
