WPF Border rendering offset when CornerRadius defined

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 14, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WPF
I'm experiencing a strange rendering issue when running WPF based apps on my workstation. The any vertical drawn seems to be offset to the left by 1px. This is especially noticeable on elements that are wrapped by a <Border /> element with it's "CornerRadius" defined. Does anyone have any idea what's going on?   Running: Microsoft Visual Studio 2008Version 9.0.30729.1 SPMicrosoft .NET FrameworkVersion 3.5 SP1BTW this issue IS NOT seen in the designer. Same thing in Blend 3 :

Rendering ASP.NET Script References into the Html Header

One thing that I've come to appreciate in control development in ASP.NET that use JavaScript is the ability to have more control over script and script include placement than ASP.NET provides natively. Specifically in ASP.NET you can use either the ClientScriptManager or ScriptManager to embed scripts and script references into pages via code.

User Defined Functions in Microsoft SQL Server

User Defined Functions are compact pieces of Transact SQL code, which can accept parameters, and return either a value, or a table. They are saved as individual work units, and are created using standard SQL commands. Data transformation and reference value retrieval are common uses for functions. LEFT, the built in function for getting the left part of a string, and GETDATE, used for obtaining the current date and time, are two examples of function use. User Defined Functions enable the developer or DBA to create functions of their own, and save them inside SQL Server.

Rendering data with HTML tags in the DD Gridview for a selected column


I am having trouble finding out where and how to HTML Encode a cell's data on the Dynamic Data (v4.0) gridview of List.aspx.  As a simple case, suppose I have formatted cell data that is A<br/>B in the DB.    Obviously, I want A stacked on B in the cell.

It seems gridView1.HtmlEncode = true has gone away.

So maybe I'll try to catch it on the RowDataBound event:

protected void GridView1_RowDataBound(Object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)

            if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow)
                // Html Encode the cells


but this event never fires?

Has anyone figured out how to properly render HTML tags data in the List.aspx's GridView1? 

If I figure this out, then I can add a MetaAttribute called something like [EncodeAsHtml(true)] and be on my way.  Thanks!

This is frustrating, and I don't know how to solve it.

I have a strange problem. I am adding a LinqDatasource object, and set the context:

        protected void LinqDataSource_ContextCreating(object sender, LinqDataSourceContextEventArgs e)
            e.ObjectInstance = new KaruselaDataContext(ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["ConnectionString"].ConnectionString);

Then I get this error:
The type 'System.Data.Linq.DataContext' is defined in an assembly that is not referenced. You must add a reference to assembly 'System.Data.Linq, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089'.


On web.config I already have this:
<add assembly="System.Data.Linq, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089"/>

NOTE: The datacontext is in a different project (DLL proect) where I added a refernce to System.Data.Linq.

is there another way adding a refernce to a web project? or only though teh web.config?


Composite Control which contains arbitrary content defined in .aspx of parent and thier ViewState


I want to write own control which can contain other. And I want to define content of the control in the .aspx file where the control is defined. I have written such control. But now I have issue with ViewState of inner controls of my control. The following samle illustrates the issue: I defined two asp:DropDownList ID="ddl1" and ID="ddl2" One of them is inside of my control and other is outside. When posback is occurred asp:DropDownList ID="ddl1 loses state and becomes empty. How to say ASP.net to store state of inner controls defined by this way?

"Type ASP.x is not defined" error for dynamic user control when publishing updateable


I have a user control (ContainerCtrl) which programmatically instantiates another user control (SimpleCtrl) in OnLoad. It builds and runs fine, but when I publish it I get the error "error BC30002: Type 'ASP.SimpleCtrl' is not defined." (If I publish without the "updateable" option there's no error, but I need the site to be updateable.)

I assume this has to do with the particulars of how the assembly(ies) are built for the different compiler options. My question is, how can I get it to work properly for "updateable" publishing?

The code follows (web.config is the default from Visual Studio).

Here is the page directive for the page that throws the error:

The code behind file Index.aspx.cs starts like this:

The code behind is extending this HomePage class, which is in turn an extenstion of another class University.Framework.UI.Page, which extends the System.Web.UI.Page class.

Using Server-Side XSL for Early Rendering: Generating Frequently Accessed Data-Driven Web Pages in A


Dynamic data-driven pages have become the basis of many cutting-edge Web sites. Early render systems can provide better performance and maintainability for data-driven Web sites by generating frequently accessed pages that contain less-volatile information ahead of time. We'll show you an example of a server-side solution that uses Extensible Stylesheet Language (XSL) to merge data and layout information into HTML that is compatible with just about any modern Web browser. Using these techniques to render Web pages early can reduce the load on your database back end and increase performance for your users.

Problems Rendering Special Characters


Good afternoon ASP programmers,

I am creating an application that creates math problems for students.  I wish to use a special character for negation to differentiate it from the minus sign.  I am using the Unicode character U02c9. 


This is a composite screen shot of two problems. The top one is rendered in Fire Fox and the bottom one in IE.  I'd like to know how to change my JavaScript so that IE is rendered like Fire Fox.  I have created variables that I use for my special characters.

var symMul= "×";
var symDiv= "÷";
var symNeg= "?";

Both IE & Fire Fox correctly render the symDiv and symMul symbols. Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated.




Rendering User Control content


I have a scenario where, the content is:
 ASP.NET Controls
      User Control
 ASP.NET Controls

The entire div code is rendered and is sent at a mail using the code:

Dim sw As New StringWriter()
Dim w As New HtmlTextWriter(sw)
Dim s As String = sw.GetStringBuilder().ToString()

This works fine except that the User Control does not get rendered.

Any way out, so that the User Control content is also rendered ?

I am using Razor and I need to display a String or the view property value on the following condition:

This is working. But can I make this simpler?

I tried the following:

@String.IsNullOrEmpty(View.Title) ? @("Default Title") : @View.Title

This is not working ...
