How Would I Design a Trigger Based on Object Type?

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 13, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WPF
I have doing some research trying to figure out how I could create a trigger or datatemplate that would react based on an Object's type, but haven't found a decent explanation. In code I could use "GetTyoe()" but I am unsure if that is possible in XAML. As a basic example, if the Object is of Type "A" I want to bind the content of a label to a certain property of object "A", but if the object is of Type "B" I want to bind to a different property. I guess the big question is: How do I determine an objects type from XAML?

type object parameter



I have a problem I can't figure out.

I've been trying to add a listbox with multi select enabled as a parameter to my select statement in sqldatasource.

So i created a function like this :

string strItemTypes = "";
foreach (ListItem li in lbItemType.Items)
   if (li.Selected)
      strItemTypes += "," + li.Value;
strItemTypes = strItemTypes.Substring(1);

which gives me the selected items like this for example : "1,2,3"...
Then I've been trying to add it to my sql select statement :

SELECT tblOfficesItems.idOfficesItems, tblStockItems.Name, tblStockItems.Description, tblStockItemTypes.TypeItem, tblStockItems.Notes FROM tblOfficesItems INNER JOIN tblStockItems ON tblOfficesItems.fkItem = tblStockItems.idItem INNER JOIN tblStockItemTypes ON tblStockItems.fkTypeItem = tblStockItemTypes.idTypeItem WHERE tblStockItems.fkTypeItem IN ( @fkTypeItems )

using a hiddenfield with a controlparameter of type=object
but it just don't seem to work, seems like the data just won't bind or something and I don't get any errors so I'm confused!!

then i tried this :

SELECT tblOfficesItems.idOfficesItems, tblStockItems.Name

Business object design in master details.


Hello guys, I have the following scenario,

  1. There is a master business object containing 40 fields
  2. 2 separate child business objects
  3. If I update a child record, I have to update master's 'Last modify by' status along with 3 or more fields in master
  4. For this purpose, I don't want to initialize a separate Master class object (as most of the fields are unused/wasted)
  5. The 'last modify by' also gets updated if the records in master get updated themselves

Currently I have separate business objects for master table, Child 1, Child 2 etc.

How do I control this in my business object design ? Do I break up my master object ? Say I extract last 'modify by ' into a new class, through inheritance or some other way ?

Is there a way that whenever child gets updated I use a 'small' class to update Master status only and whenever the master itself gets updated I do the same.

Problem is that I am having redundancy in my small class (Master class also contains 'Last Modify By ',

What would you advice. Please have your say. Thank you.

Edit  I am using webforms guys.

VS 2010 XAML Design View Load always fail with a Type Load Exception

Create a new WPF project in VS and change nothing. The Design View will fail to load with the error below. Error    1    Could not load type 'Microsoft.Expression.DesignModel.Core.ISharedInstanceBuilder' from assembly 'Microsoft.Expression.DesignModel, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a'. Microsoft.Expression.DesignModel is an assembly from Expression Blend. I ever installed Blend 4 RC and uninstall and install Blend 4. I Reflector the assembly I have under Blend 4 bin folder. And cannot find a interface named ISharedInstanceBuilder. But the WPF project is a Template project without any changes. How it get related with Blend 4? And how to fix it? Thanks.  

WPF get Type in Design time?

Well here is my problem i have a class that inherits UserControl (View) now i use this class instead of the UserControl and i need to get the type in some cases now this works great a run time .GetType() returns the right type (for example ShellView) but when running in design time (the wpf editor in Visual Stuido) .GetType() returns the base type instead of the type of the current xaml document... Example: public class View : UserControl { public override void OnApplyTemplate() { MessageBox.Show(this.GetType().ToString()); base.OnApplyTemplate(); } } My XAML: <local:View x:Class="WpfApplication2.Test" xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation" xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml" xmlns:mc="http://schemas.openxmlformats.org/markup-compatibility/2006" xmlns:d="http://schemas.microsoft.com/expression/blend/2008" xmlns:local="clr-namespace:WpfApplication2" mc:Ignorable="d" d:DesignHeight="300" d:DesignWidth="300"> <Grid> </Grid> </local:View> so in this case when i open Test in the designer i get a message saying View, but when i run the program i get a message box saying Test.. How can i get the right type in design time im totaly lost on this problem..

Related to Type Identifier in Object header

Hi , I have read some where that , every object created on CLR heap has Object Header and Object body. In case of c++ , we need to make destructor as virtual in case of polymorphism. Example c++ :-  class base {   virtual void Hello(): }; class Derived: base {   int *ptr;   Derived()  {     ptr=new int[10];   }   ~Derived()   {      delete ptr;    }    } This is not a compiled code. In this senario we need to make Derived class destructor as virtaul. Question is in case of CLR , we need  not make destructor as virtual. How does CLR takes care of this internally.    

How to find specific nested object type in Gridview

Dears, I have a gridview with a nested placeholder in each rows. I nested some checkboxes in each placeholders in each rows dynamically, so their ServerIDs are not the same (I dont want to use nested gridview). at the end in a button event I want to count checked checkboxes in gridview while I can not use findcontrol() method in each rows to find checkboxes due to their different ServerIDs. How can I do this?

Timer job intiation error: SharePoint cannot deserialize an object of type

Hi All, when i run a timer job (One-Time timer) it has added it to Timer Job definitions in the Central Administration. I have checked the Log file in 12 hive and found the following error..... "SharePoint cannot deserialize an object of type xyz.xyzJob, xyzTimer, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=<token> on this machine. This typically occurs because the assembly containing this type is not installed on this machine. In this case, this message can be safely ignored. Otherwise, the assembly needs to be installed on this machine in a location that can be discovered by the .NET Framework." The above error says that the assembly is not added.... but it has been already added to the GAC. Can anyone guide me about the issue and how to resolve that........?

Calling a method with a class object as parameter data type.

   [WebMethod]    public string GetInfo(Customer inCust)    {        // Code in here    } I have a web service that resides on a remote server. I want to call a public method of theweb service named  "GetInfo". The method is shown above. The web service method expects a class object oftype "Customer". What I did to create a Customer object was to define in my asp.net project my own class named "Customer" which is exactlythe same as the class that belongs to the web service project on the remote server. I then created an instance of Customerand tried to call the web service passing in an object of type customer : my.Service ws = new my.Service(); // Get web service connectionCustomer aCustomer = new Customer();aCustomer.Initialize();ws.GetInfo(aCustomer) // call web service passing in a Customer object The problem is that the compiler gives me the following error: Value of type '_Default.Customer' cannot be converted to 'ws.Class1'. Here Default is refering to my Default.aspx.cs code. Why is this? Do I need to Cast my "aCustomer" class object to a type ofws.Customer ? How do I do that?

Object of type Sys.UI._Time' cannot be converted to type Sys.UI._Timer

I have a main page with several menu choices, one of which launches an ajax enabled window.  The following pattern occurs: If I: 1) Launch site 2) Select menu choice listed on master page that is not ajax enabled 3) Select menu choice that launches ajax enabled popup. 4) close pages All is OK. If I repeat the steps, but in step 2 I select an ajax enabled page and them launch popup, I get the following error: Message: Sys.ArgumentTypeException: Object of type 'Sys.UI._Timer' cannot be converted to type 'Sys.UI._Timer'. I have spent days on this and have been unable to solve it.  If I remove the ajax ToolkitScriptManager and update panels from any of the pages and launch the popup, it works. Can anyone offer some guidance? that are not ajax enabled and then selethat includes an ajax enabled popup window.  T 

Weird Issue with the MOSS Search : FileExtension metadata object type instead of string

Hello, We 've got a strange issue with the search and especially with the FileExtension metadata. when we make a query on the search engine, we receive for the FileExtension metadata an unexcpected result. here is a printscreen showing the issue. http://cid-53eee937847a625e.photos.live.com/self.aspx/Public/Untitled.jpg as you can see the Type of the FileExtension is object and it should be string and I checked the type of the object and it's System.String[] the element at the index 0 contains the value! what's wrong ? thx in advance

How to use return JSON object from web service as a declared Type?

Hi, I just hit the following issue: I am calling a web service that returns a serialized JSON object let's say: __type, FirstName, LastName (.net object Person with properties FirstName and LastName). __type's value is Test.Person I have created a JS object using Type.registerNameSpace/registerClass called Demo.Person and it is registered on the page using the ScriptManager. Everything is working fine; I am able to get data from the server on the call back. Is it possible to make the returned object from the web service be an instance of the declared JavaScript Demo.Person class? The idea would be to call a method like result.getFullName() on the client side without having to copy all the properties. This is just a simple scenario for more complex objects.   Thanks,   Teo
