Binding a treeview to a LinqToSQL class...

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 21, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WPF
 

Hi all,

I have a LinQtoSQL class which encapsulates a table with the following relationship:

Id (int)
Parent ID(int)
Name (string)

Here, the parent ID is the id of another row int he same table. So, the table could look like:

1, null, grandpa
2,1, mom
3,2,me
3,2,sis

What I want to do is the create a treeview that binds to the table so that it looks like this:

grandpa
    mom
        me
        sis

Also, I should be able to add or delete nodes/rows...

Any ideas on how to do this? Is this even possible without writing the code to do all the population and the edit etc?

 

thanks,

Jas

Custom markup extension or custom binding class?

  
Hey experts! I'm doing a project where I've encountered an issue I'd love some feedback on. I've created a custom Markup Extension called MyMarkupExtension, with two properties.  I can use it like below: <cc:DialogBorder Title="{local:MyMarkupExtension MyProperty='property value goes here', AnotherProperty='and another value here'}"> It works, and in 99% of the cases, it fits my needs perfectly.  In 1% of the cases, the values of MyProperty and AnotherProperty can not be set at design time, so I'd need some binding there. <cc:DialogBorder Title="{local:MyMarkupExtension MyProperty={Binding Path='SomePropertyOfTheViewModel'}, AnotherProperty='and another value here'}"> This presents my two questions (yes I did make only one post for 2 questions, bad karma...): 1. the binding inside my markup is not legal, after all, a binding can only be set on a DependencyProperty.  Is there any workaround which I could use for this problem at hand? In case there isnt... 2. I'm thinking about dropping the markup extension and creating a custom binding instead.  For this, I'd have to inherit from bindingbase, and so far I've read online that's one ____ of a nightmare.  Does anyone have some good code / examples on where to start?

Binding the sharepoint treeview to the quick launch data source

  
Is there any way i can bind the sharepoint treeview navigation to the same datasource as the quick launch bar? I'm trying to create a consistent navigation structure within a 4-site deep structure so the quick launch bar is rather clunky to use, but the treeview picks up on document libraries i don't want it to (i only want it to show subsites and pages).

Some Useful Properties of Binding Class

  
When binding the UI control with the data source the Binding class has some useful properties.In this post we will look at them and use them in sample application. The properties which we are going to discuss in this post are the FallbackValue ,TargetNullValue, and StringFormat. Image 1 shows the output of the example code.

Memory leak on binding to a WPF TreeView

  
We're having an issue with a TreeView hanging onto a viewmodel set that has been bound to it. We have a static treeview on the main window, and reset its ItemsSource to Nothing or a new viewmodel when new things need to be displayed. The problem seems to be that it's hanging onto the first item that it was bound to, even after the ItemsSource is set to nothing. The connection seems to be through some strange unknown binding that's in the EffectiveValues collection of the TreeView.   I was able to repro this in a test project, so I'll post the simplified code:   TreeView templates:   <Window.Resources> <HierarchicalDataTemplate DataType="{x:Type local:ParentViewModel}" ItemsSource="{Binding ChildVMs}"> <TextBlock Text="{Binding Name}"/> </HierarchicalDataTemplate> <DataTemplate DataType="{x:Type local:ChildViewModel}"> <TextBlock Text="{Binding Name}"/> </DataTemplate> </Window.Resources>   ViewModel definitions: (Shared Function to generate the itemssource for the treeview)   Public Class ParentViewModel Public Shared counter As Integer = 0 Public Shared Function GenerateViewModel() As List(Of ParentViewModel) Dim pvm As New ParentViewModel With {.Name = "Parent" & counter} ' Unique name pvm.ChildV

Binding to the TreeView control

  
My TreeView controls is rendering CheckBoxes on Leaf nodes. I want to bind to those nodes the ID of the underlying data item. I am not sure I can do this declaratively or if I need to hook up to the TreeNodeDataBound event. If the latter, how would I go about achieving this?   _hector

WPF OneWay ItemsSource Binding to a static class's dictionary?

  

Hi,

I have a global Static class which implements a dictionary of languages:

namespace Tools.DataAccess
{
  static public class Planner
  {
    static public class Dictionaries
    {
      static public Dictionary<UInt32, string> Languages { get; }
    }
  }
}

I am trying to bind a ComboBox's ItemSource to the static dictionary called "Languages". It works very well through code-behind at the moment:

InitializeComponent();
ui_languages_cmo.ItemsSource = Tools.DataAccess.Planner.Dictionaries.Languages;

However I cannot bind it through XAML. The dictionary actually resides in a separate namespace (Tools) than my UserControl (myApp). Here's roughly what I'm trying to do:

<UserControl x:Class

Binding Question How does one set datacontext to same class in XAML?

  

I have a usercontrol with one button in it.  I want to set the text via a property getter setter using the INotifyPropertyChanged interface in code behind.  I can get it to work if I set the DATACONTEXT in code behind in the CTOR like this : DataContext = this;  Everything works perfect. 

But here's the problem.  If I try to do this in xaml by defining an XMLNS which points to the folder this usercontrol is in, and then attempt to reference it as a resouce like this <local:XXXXXX  <-------The XXXX which is the class name of this control can't be found?  Is that wierd?  Can't a resource be itself?  So that I can set the Datacontext in the XAML instead of code behind?  I've tried to bind to relative source self, but cannot set the property (Event when I attempted to created a dependency property).....  Just wondering how one sets up Datacontext to the same class?

Binding a TreeView to a collection of objects

  

Hi!

I want to achieve this:

 

through data binding. That is, I've got this collection of objects of the same class (currently stored in a ArrayList), and I want to display them in a treeview, so that when you expand them you can see the values of their attributes.

Is it possible to do it via DataBinding?

 

 

 

 


Binding a Treeview to an exception...

  
I'm not too familiar with Hierarchal DataTemplates yet, but here's what I want to do. 

I have a message box that has a small expander on the bottom with a treeview inside.  I want to hook the treeview up so that during runtime when an error occurs it can be caught, loaded into this treeview and displayed (including all the inner exceptions). 

How would I go about doing this? 

I'm fairly familiar with wpf and I can get everything into the message box correctly it's just the final display that I can't do yet. Also, I'm using VS 2010 Ultimate Beta 2.  Thanks in advance!!

WPF TreeView Binding

  

Hello All,

I am having a heck of a time trying to get a TreeView control bounded to a List which is a member of Class which is a member of the MainWindow. Here is a contrived example similar to what I am trying today. Can anyone help me bind so that the Server Names show as Items in the TreeView. This would be a huge help.

 

Custom Classes:

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;

namespace SystemsManagement
{
    public class ServerManager
    {
        public List<Server> Servers { get; private set; }

        public ServerManager()
        {
            Servers = new List<Server>();

            Servers.Add(new Server("Server1"));
            Servers.Add(new Server("Server2"));
        }


    }

    public class Server
    {
        pub

WPF Treeview - Binding to a collection with different depths, and styling differently

  

Apologies for the long post -- Read a few threads about this, but still find it hard to implement. Basically, I have a collection of objects, defined as:

public class LibData
{
  public string Name { get; set; }
  ObservableCollection<LibObject> _list;
  public ObservableCollection<LibObject> List { get { return _list; } }

  public LibData(string name, LibDataType type)
  {
    this.Name = name;
    _list = new ObservableCollection<LibObject>();
  }
}

Nonstandard Treeview Binding

  

I am currently binding a Treeview to an Entity Framework objectset, which is working just fine. However I would like to organize the nodes in the treeview differently.

For example, if I bind so the root nodes represent the Students collection and the leaf nodes are that student's Subjects collection, that is just fine, but can I change the arrangement so that there are two root nodes, say Male and Female students, according to a property of the Student, and underneath those, the leaf nodes are say Bob, Dave, Steve under the Male root. And Jane, Sheila and Gertrude under the Female root?

In other words, instead of binding to Students and a collection belonging to Students, can I set up the treeview in such a way that the root nodes are manually specified, and the leaf nodes are under the correct root based on a property of the Students?

Thanks for any advice.


Is it a bug in Visual Studio 2008 in WPF Designer when binding to enum defined inside of class?

  

Hello,

 

I have following problem:

when defining an enumeration inside of class (either static class or not) I can bind to this enum, however the WPF Designer inside Visual Studio does not display designed GUI anymore and show an error Type "MyClass+MyEnum" was not found.

However I can compile and execute the code and in the combobox all enum- values are listed.

 

Code behind:

    public class MyClass
    {
        public enum MyEnum { enumValue01, enumValue02, enumValue03, enumValue04, enumValue05 }
    }

 

My xaml-code:
