DataGridView ComboBox visual style differs for same app on different systems



In a windows forms application developed with VB2008 Express the DataGridView ComboBox is rendered differently on different systems. 


On Windows XP Pro SP3, where the app was developed, the combo box appears as follows:

Well, apparently images can't be pasted to these threads so I'll have to try to describe the appearance.

Appearance in Windows XP:

Rectangular box with the same shape, color and appearance as a DataGridView TextBox except that it has a square drop-down button at it's right edge the same color as a ToolStrip or ScrollBar buttons/elevator.

Appearance in Windows 7:

Rounded rectangular gray box, lighter on the top half to make it appear bowed out along it's horizontal axis with a rectangular drop-down button, also gray.  This appearance is displeasing alongside the flat, rectangular, white background text and image boxes in the same DataGridView.

Additional information:

Salient DataGridView properties:
AutoSizeColumnsMode: None
AutoSizeRowsMode: None
BorderStyle: FixedSingle
CellBorderStyle: Single

Visual tree with collapsed elements -Performance



I have a very large and deep visual tree.I had an issue with tab switch .It use to build the visual elements when the focus is on a tab and then drop those elemnts when you move away from the tabs.

To overcome this performance challenge I stop dropping and adding the visual elemnts when tab is switched I just made it "collapsed".

Though now the tree is huge but it should not hit performance.

Are you aware of any performance if you have large visual tree with collapsed elemnts .Is it better or worse or same as those collapsed elements not in the tree.

Hover-Style for single elements of a new control



I've a UserConrol, lets say ButtonX with several parameters like color, text and border. This parameters are passed to different elements of my control, e.g., the text to an asp:Label and the border to the style attribute of an enclosing DIV. No I want to pass some parameter to the hover and active state of some inner control elements (e.g., the DIV). I know how to set every CSS style parameter of an asp:Label or DIV - but how can I set the hover parameters?

I can not write an external CSS class like

.button1:hover { ... } and assign this, because the color is assigned dynamically via the UserControl like <xy:ButtonX id=".." hoverColor="..." runat="server"/>

Thus, how can I change the hover parameters in my C# code behind dynamically?


Many Thanks


A better way to reference your wizard steps using named steps

Note: this article uses the plain vanilla but the concepts apply equally well to its popular counterpart .

By far the most common way that I see wizard steps reference in code snippets is by their index.

ASP.NET repeater control - databind with style

even used the inline editing features, which I at the time thought was the coolest way possible to write ASP.NET code ( I managed to write code to hide all other rows and only show the current one - the row being edited). With a nice looking EditTemplate it looked indeed very slick but it really turned into giant and hard to manage code behind files.

A Simple and Extensible Radio Button Style GridView

The GridView is one of the significant controls in ASP.NET 2.0 and later versions. No doubt it reduces a lot of work time. However, customizing the GridView control is not an easy task. For example, it's hard to add a radio button column to the GridView. This article demonstrates the reason why a radio button column cannot act as normal and how to create a simple and extensible radio button GridView.

Visual Studio 2010 Beta 2

This is a big deal. This isn't ".NET 3.6" - there are a lot of improvements of .NET 4, and it's not just "pile on a bunch of features so you get overwhelmed." I've been working with and talking to many of the teams involved and even though it's a cheesy thing to say, this is a really customer-focused release.

ASP 4 - Whirlwind Tour around .NET 4 (and Visual Studio 2010) Beta 1

There's a lot of stuff that's new and added in .NET 4, but not in that "overwhelming-I-need-to-relearn-everything" way. More in that, "oh, this is way easier/simpler now" way. Like, moving data around with ADO.NET DataServices is easy, binding with client templates is easy, there's F# if you need it, the "dynamic" keyword if you need it, Silverlight's already installed, oh, and the parallel stuff will freak you out, but in a good way.
