Listview scrolls horizontally to the far right on creation instead of staying at the normal starting

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 20, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WPF

I have a listview with a lot of columns, more than 20 anyway.  Because of this, there will always be a horizontal scroll bar visible.  Every column looks like this sample except the bindings are obviously different for each.  No matter what column is the "last", it has the keyboard focus in the TextBox of the Header and forces the listview to scroll all the way to the right.

The default behavior of most listviews is that your at the top left of your collection, leaving the first moves to be either down or right if scrolling is possible.  How do I correct this behavior so that it operates as expected?


<GridViewColumn >    						
    <TextBox Text="{Binding Path=MyFirstProperty}" HorizontalAlignment="Stretch" Width="138"/>
 <StackPanel >
   <TextBlock Text="First Property" VerticalAlignment="Center" />
   <TextBox Width="138" x:Name="tbFirstProp" Text="{Binding FirstProperty, Mode=TwoWay}"/>
   <Button Content="↓" FontFamily="Arial" Command="{Binding UpdateFirstPropertyCommand}" FontSize="14"

Using ASP.NET 3.5's ListView and DataPager Controls: Displaying Data with the ListView

Prior to ASP.NET 3.5, developers who needed to display a set of records could choose between the GridView, DataList, and Repeater controls. The GridView provides rich data features, but has a very boxy layout; the DataList and Repeater allow for a more flexible layout, but lack the "point and click" data features found in the GridView, DetailsView, and FormView controls. The ListView bridges the gap between layout flexibility and built-in data features.

This article, the first in a series of articles on the ListView and DataPager controls, looks at the ListView's many available templates and illustrates how to display data. Read on to learn more!

WPF Tutorial - Using The ListView, Part 1

Many of the controls in WPF have a downright dizzying array of capabilities and features, due in large part to the composibility of all the components. The ListView control is a great example of this - the possibilities are almost endless. This series of tutorials on the ListView will hopefully make the space of possible options seem not quite as daunting

How to listen to events within a listview



I've got a listview and I've put a button control in one of the columns, I'm trying to figure out how I have listen to the button click within a certain row, but can't see the button in the dropdown for the IDs I can generate events for.

I'd like to get the primary key of the row that's been clicked on and then run a sql statement against it.

Any help would be appreciated.

ListView DataPager with SQL-Statements that already return only paged data.



As far as I understand the ListView-Control and the DataPager-Control, they work like this: The ListView gets its datarows from its data source, then the DataPager causes the ListView to display only a subset of those rows.

So what, when I want to use custom databinding for the ListView, that *already* gets the certain subset from SQL-Server (for better performance). Can I and how can I use the DataPager then?

Thanx, S.

Need help regarding C# / AJAX Dynamic Controls creation


radiobuttons is assigned before page init.. 

public partial class Default : System.Web.UI.Page
//Assign values as a specific Dynamic WebControl Creation.
List<RadioButton> radioButtons = new List<RadioButton>();
List<CheckBox> checkBoxes = new List<CheckBox>();

Then I created a class that would dynamically create a table containing the available flights depending on session.. (See CallPageLoad())

The placeholder and button is inside the UpdatePanel...

on the button inside the update panel, (btnSelect)

i have this code which works... 

protected void btnSelect_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)

Label1.Text = Convert.ToString(radioButtons.Count);

It detects the number of radiobuttons that were dynamically created...

But when I use the following code inside the BtnSelectClick event...

//PLS HELP.......
foreach (RadioButton button in radioButtons)
if (button.Checked == true)
Label1.Text = "You select... " + button;



It does not work even though t

Centering an img in a div both horizontally and vertically


I realize this is simply an HTML question, but I'm having a difficult figuring out the CSS stuff to center an <img /> tag within a <div> tag.

<div style="width: 180px; height: 180px; padding: 10px; margin-top: auto; margin-bottom: auto;">
  <img src="file" alt="" style="width: 160px; height: 80px;" />

It centers horizontally just fine, but I cannot get it to center vertically within the div.

Can anyone point out what I'm missing???

SQL/MTS: Automating the Creation of COM+ Components for a Database Schema


Using Microsoft Windows DNA architecture as a guideline, it's possible to create scalable multitier database applications with COM+ and Microsoft Transaction Services. In fact, you can use existing table definitions to automatically build the MTS/COM+ business logic layer and data access components for your application. This article will walk you through the development of database transactions by mapping the transactions to automatically generated MTS/COM+ components. This technique can greatly simplify the task of creating components for a large project.

Programmatically Simulating the ListView's ItemCommand Event


I have a User Control that contains a ListView.  In the user control's code is this event handler:

    protected void listView1_ItemCommand(object source, ListViewCommandEventArgs e)
      Button_ClickHandler(source, e);

What's occurring is that I'm explicitly firing an event so that the parent web page can monitor this and take appropriate actions.  Thus when the user clicks on a different ListViewItem it triggers the population of associated data elsewhere on the web page.

This all works fine except for one thing: When I first load the control I'm pre-setting the first ListViewItem.  Unfortunately, just setting the ListView's SelectedIndex = 0 doesn't fire the aforementioned event handler.

So I started investigating how to call "listView1_ItemCommand" but couldn't figure out how to instantiate the "e" parameter.

Any ideas of how to resolve this?


Dropdownlist in ListView


I have a transaction table with a field called product. There is a limited number of choices for product so I also have a product table. I am showing the transactions in a ListView with a dropdownlist for Product. The field Product can be blank (all works well then). The user can leave the field blank or they can choose from the dropdownlist. I am running into a problem with the dropdownlist in the Edit Template. No matter what the product is in the transaction file, I get a page error of "ddlEditProduct has a SelectedValue which is invalid because it does not exist in the list of items". I have verified the product does exist in the product table.

My markup is:

<asp:DropDownList ID="ddlEditProduct" runat="server"
SelectedValue='<%# Bind("Product") %>' >
<asp:ListItem Selected="True"></asp:ListItem>

Association creation error


In the dbml Designer surface in VS2010, I am associating two views from a database which I am only granted for View access. 

The View1 has 
  Site (smallint, not null)
  LocationID (int, not null)

The View2 has
  Site (int, not null)
  LocationID (int, not null)

Due to the incompatible types between this two, the association can not be created.  Is there other way to create the association, such as cast(View1.Site as int) in the assocation?

Manually coding controls such as gridview, listview, repeater, etc.


using vs2010 and .net 4

In my project I have a separate DAL built from class files that I'd like to use to store my code for CRUD operations against my database.

I'm having a hard time finding examples of how to code server controls like the gridview, listview, repeater etc., for CRUD operations manually, i.e., without a datasource control of some flavor.

I don't have any problem manually coding the referenced controls to get my data, but I do have problems when it comes to coding them to perform CRUD operations unless I use a datasource control. When I use the datasource controls CRUD operations seem to automagically appear out of nowhere after they're configured.

Can someone point me to some samples somewhere? Have I missed a section at MSDN?


MySite creation never completes

Our moss 2007 SP2 farm currently won't create any My Sites.  When a new user visits my.domain.com they get the "Please wait while your personal site is setup for the first time and the default document libraries and lists are created.  This may take several seconds." message but it just sits there forever.

I'm not sure when it stopped working as we only really create new accounts at certain periods during the year - it was working 6 months ago.

I can't find any log messages about the creation/failure - any tips on where to look?
