Button height doesn't increase with larger font size

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 14, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WPF
Hi, I've got a couple buttons in a StackPanel that aren't increasing when I increase the font size. I think it has to do with the VerticalAlignment but I'm not catching what's going on. Here is the xaml: <StackPanel Grid.Row="3" Grid.RowSpan="1" Height="Auto" HorizontalAlignment="Stretch" Name="stackPanel1" VerticalAlignment="Stretch" Width="Auto" Orientation="Horizontal"> <Button Background="#FF7F3F96" BorderBrush="{x:Null}" Content="exit" FontFamily="Myriad Pro" FontSize="12" Foreground="White" Width="Auto" MinWidth="74" Margin="23,8,11,9" /> <Button BorderBrush="{x:Null}" Content="new" FontFamily="Myriad Pro" FontSize="12" Foreground="White" RenderTransformOrigin="-0.243,0.516" Width="Auto" MinWidth="74" Margin="11,8,11,9"> <Button.Background> <SolidColorBrush Color="{DynamicResource Green}" /> </Button.Background> </Button> </StackPanel>

WPF control size is larger than explicitly set width and height values.

I created a Canvas with fixed Width and Height (256x256). Next to it I put an Image control displaying a 256x256 texture without stretching. How is it possible that actual sizes of both controls on the screen differ so much? Here - is the screenshot illustrating size mismatch. And here - the TestLines256.png in case someone liked to check it (and maybe point out that I'm stupid and this texture is 180x180 and not 256x256 as I claimed). XAML with creation of the controls:   <Window x:Class="OversizedQuad.MainWindow" xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation" xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml" Title="MainWindow" SizeToContent="WidthAndHeight"> <StackPanel Orientation="Horizontal"> <Canvas Width="256" Height="256" Background="Red" /> <Image Stretch="None" Source="TestLines256.png" /> </StackPanel>

Designer Font Size Appears Much Larger Than When Viewed in Actual Website


I have Visual Studio 2010 Pro on both my desktop and laptop and have the preferences/settings the same for each installation.  On my desktop, when I view a webpage I've created in the Designer, the font size in a <p> tag appears consistent with how it looks on the page in the published website.  On the laptop, however, the <p> tag font size appears much larger in the Designer, but correct when published.  With the settings the same on both the desktop installation and the laptop, any ideas what I need to tweak so <p> tag text size appears the same in the Designer as on the published site?  The CSS is identical on both the desktop and laptop installations.

Thanks in advance...

Getting full font height

How I can get full font height (height of system caret in TextBox or RichTextBox control when Font property is set to particular font) in pixels? I have tried Graphics.MeasureCharacterRanges and Graphics.MeasureString functions, but result is not equal caret height. It's terrible! A have also tried Win32 API function GetTextMetrics. Can someone help me?

Increase string size in Crystal Reports for VS 2010

Hi guys, I have a field in my dataset with type nvarchar(1000). when I link it to crystal reports, it converts it to a field of type string with length set to 100. As a result of that, the string in that field is being truncated on the report. How can I increase the string length to 1000? (I already checked the "Can grow" option). Thanks, Sam  

Need more font size options in browser edit mode

Is there a way to have a different font size other than the drop down menu of Editing Tools > Format Text of: 8, 10, 12, 18, 24, 36, 48, 72 pt ?   As a designer, I feel handcuffed with just these options. 

DatePicker calendar font size

Due to the fact that we have globally changed the TextBlock size, the DatePicker calendar does not display properly. The month at the top is too big and is getting cut off.   Is there a way to either override the font  size for the DatePicker to have its normal size or to directly set the size through a style? I tried this:   <Style TargetType="{x:Type CalendarItem}">     <Setter Property="TextElement.FontSize" Value="10"/> </Style>   But it didn't work. I could override the entire CalendarItem template but I'd rather not.

Bar-graph style - how to keep columns in relative height of size of "graph"

Hi, I need some input for this and imagined that someone else had seen something like it: I have a box, let's say a grid, where there are some bars in it. These bars could be rectangles in a ItemsControl. The grid has a fixed height and width - but the rectangles' height (and width) are set a from a collection of numbers. These numbers go from 0 to 200 - but in periods the numbers only go from 1 to 10. If I use absolute numbers, the rectangles will be tiny in height or width if the numbers are between 1 and 10 and the Grid is 200 in height and width. How do I make the size of these rectangles relative to the tallest one? I guess I could do some calculations 'behind the scenes' in code, but is that really necessary? Is there no other way? Thanks! --Anders

However, if the listitem is selected, the command does not execute. I have tried putting click and mouse down event handlers on the button, but the events do not fire.

increase initial size in SQL Server 2008 with Advanced Reporting Services

What is the maximum size a database using SQL Server 2008 Express with Advanced Services  can grow to?  I currently have one that is 204.44 MB with 0 space free.  Growth is set to Auto.  How can I increase the database size in this version?  I would like to allow it to be at least 400 MB?  May I simply increase the Initial Size to be 400 MB; and then increase the log file size to be 2 MB (currenlty set to 1)?  The enable autogrowth is set to grow automatically by 10 percent.

Height Doesn't Resize After Update with UpdatePanel in IE



On a page I made, I have a pretty standard update panel. In the update panel are radio buttons that trigger the update panel to change it's view (list or grid) based on which radio is selected. This works great in every browser except IE8. IE8 doesn't seem to want to update the height of the panel when it's refreshed causing the content are to stay rather large or to not be large enough.

You can see it here:


<asp:UpdatePanel ID="uplVideos" ChildrenAsTriggers="true" UpdateMode="Conditional" runat="server">
                    <div id="plVideosControls">
                	    <span style="font-weight: bold; line-height: 26px;">Display Mode:  </span>
                        <asp:RadioButtonList ID="rblVideosDisplay" CssClass="rblVideosDisplay" 

                            <asp:ListItem Text="Table" Value="table" />
