Again, Getting control inside datatemplate from code behind

HI, All: This problem comes back to bite me again. I had a similar problem before but I changed the customer control to user control and define the click event in the xaml. But this time I have to stick with the customer control. I searched the internet and there are a lot of examples but in my situation, I still got null object. I have a CUSTOMER control which derives from treeview. The hierachicalDataTemplate for the treeview is following:     <HierarchicalDataTemplate         x:Key="CheckBoxItemTemplate"         ItemsSource="{Binding SubFolder}"         >         <StackPanel Orientation="Horizontal">             <CheckBox             x:Name="PART_CheckBox"             Focusable="False"             IsChecked="{Binding IsSelected}"             VerticalAlignment="Center"                 &nbs

Get value of a label control inside the DetailsView

Hi everyone, I have a databound label control (i.e. Label 3) inside an Item Template that's in a DetailsView control. I just need to get the value of those label and compare it to some string. I tried several ways (i.e. Find control, DetailsView.Row) but nothing seems to work. I don't know if I'm using the FindControl methos correctly or if I need to access the Row first and do the findcontrol method.  Protected Sub DetailsView4_DataBound(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles DetailsView4.DataBound 'If (DetailsView4.Rows(2).Cells(1).ToString = "Regular") Then 'Label3.ForeColor = Drawing.Color.Azure 'End If 'Dim StatusQualifierContainer As Label 'Dim S As String 'StatusQualifierContainer = DetailsView4.FindControl(Label3.Text) 'S = StatusQualifierContainer.Text 'If S = "Regular" Then 'Label5.ForeColor = Drawing.Color.Aqua 'End If 'Dim C As Label = DetailsView4.FindControl("Label3") 'If C.Text = "Regular" Then 'Label3.ForeColor = Drawing.Color.DarkBlue 'End If 'Dim headerRow As DetailsViewRow = DetailsView4.HeaderRow 'Dim lblText As Label = CType(headerRow.FindControl("Label3"), Label)

Hosted Designer fails to load workflow xaml that has InArguments with default values (xaml saved by

I have hosted the designer in our app. Using the hosted designer, workflows are saved as xaml to a database. When an end user wishes to edit a workflow the xaml is downloaded to a file and loaded into the designer via the .xaml file. The user can also associate assemblies with the workflow and there is a mechanism which makes sure that these assemblies are loaded into the appdomain and available. The problem we are hitting occurs when the top level activity (Sequence) has InArgument with default value. I create a simple Sequence, add InArguments (type of Int32 and String)  and set some default values. I save the workflow xaml to the database and close down the designer. When I wish to edit the workflow and try to load I get the following errors Could not find member '{clr-namespace:}_e905.argument3'. Could not find member '{clr-namespace:}_e905.argument1'. suggesting that some assembly/namespace missing. Here is the xaml I try to load: <Activity mc:Ignorable="sap" x:Class="{x:Null}" this:_e905.argument3="99" xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/netfx/2009/xaml/activities" xmlns:mc="http://schemas.openxmlformats.org/markup-compatibility/2006" xmlns:mva="clr-namespace:Microsoft.VisualBasic.Activities;assembly=System.Activities" xmlns:s="clr-namespace:System;assembly=mscorl

User control or sub-form inside tab-pages? Best practice?

I've got a Windows Forms application with numerous tab-pages within a tab-control. Each tab-page is a diffirent user entry form with different controls of varying types. As the application is fairly large it is important that more than one developer can work on it simultaneously. Thus we decided to create a form for each tab so that different developers could work on different forms at the same time without overwriting each other's code. Each of these "sub-forms" are then assigned its relevant container tab-page as its parent. This works well but I was wondering if this is good practice or not, after another colleague commented that we are making forms look like user controls and that we should rather be creating a user control for each tab. I've converted two of the forms to user controls with relative ease and it does work nicely as well but with one draw back. On the main parent form, e.g. frmMain, where the tab control lives, there is one single button the clear the current display. When you click "Clear display" it clears various others items displayed on the main from, finds the current selected tab and clears its contents. The latter is easy to do with sub forms as I can simply close and dispose the sub form inside the selected tab, and load a new instance. I don't have to write custom logic to go and reset/clear each control on that form. Thi

Does the ReportViewer control print button work inside of a modal MSIE window?

I am getting the following two error messages when using the new ReportViewer v10 control after pressing the toolbar print button. I am only seeing this error inside of a modal popup window in MSIE. The print button in a normal popup window doesn't have this error. An error occurred trying to get the current window Error: Could not complete the operation due to error 8007f305. If anyone knows of a quick fix, please let me know. Thank you. VS2010, MSIE 8, SQL Server 2008.
