WPF: how to change the ListView cell template if the content is too long, it will display as Charact

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 27, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WPF

We have used the GridView inside the ListView. We fix the column width (see the following link):


if the content is too long in one cell (since we fix the column width), we want it display as CharacterEllipsis at the end

just like the TextBlock we can define TextTrimming="CharacterEllipsis"

how can we achive it?


we have used the ListViewItemStyle as following, can we modify the <GridViewRowPresenter  /> section to achive it?

  <!--ItemContainerStyle with the Trigger for selection x:Key="ListViewItemStyle"-->
  <Style x:Key="ListViewItemStyle" TargetType="{x:Type ListViewItem}">
   <Setter Property="Background" Value="Transparent"/>
   <Setter Property="HorizontalContentAlignment" Value="Center"/>
   <Setter Property="VerticalContentAlignment" Value="Center"/>
   <Setter Property="Foreground" Value="Black"/>
   <Setter Property="Margin" Value="5,0,5,0&q

ActiveX and Visual Basic: Enhance the Display of Long Text Strings in a Combobox or Listbox


The combobox and listbox controls in Visual Basic have no built-in support for displaying text strings that are too long to fit in the visible area of either control. This article describes several techniques to improve the readability of long strings in each control. The first technique uses tooltips to display a combobox or listbox item. The other techniques, which use various Windows APIs, include adding a horizontal scrollbar for a listbox and determining the necessary width of the longest string given the font attributes of the text. The required steps are described for both comboboxes and listboxes.

workflows when saving site as template with content

I have have a MOSS 2007 site on a production server with custom workflows.  I saved the site as a template with content and used the template to create a sibling site.  I am testing it and the workflows aren't working.  Is this to be expected? I have read that workflow don't work when saving between development and production, but I can't find anything that addresses both sites being on production. Will I need to recreate the custom workflows by hand? 

listview 3.5 bind dropdownlists edit item template VB.NET


I am trying to do this with many issues of data binding doubling the amount and not setting selectedValue on dropdownlist. I have read some posts and they help but I am missing a crucial piece. My problem is that my dropdownlist is doubling the amount of records for the dropdownlist. Instead of "YES;NO;SELECT A VALUE", I am getting "YES;NO;SELECT A VALUE;YES;NO;YES;NO". My database is correct with the UPDATE part but the rebind after update is failing horribly.

Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
        If IsPostBack Then
            If Session("ACTIVETAB").ToString() = Session("SUBCONTRACTSATABNO").ToString() Then
            End If
        End If
    End Sub

    Public Function loadlookups(ByVal id As String, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.ListViewItemEventArgs) As DataTable
        Select Case id
            Case "ddlCertReceived"
                dt = GetLookupTable("SubcontractsA", "Sub 1 Cert Received")
                Dim ddlCertReceived As DropDownList = _
                CType(e.Item.FindControl("ddlCertReceived"), DropDownList)
                ddlCertReceived.DataSource = dt
                ddlCertReceived.DataTextField = "lup_text"

Is it possible to change the title bar background and the font style on default template?



Is there any way to change the default top link /title bar picture and the fonts of the title without breaking anything in the layout/structure?

I have changed the theme to Obsedian and I would also like to change the picture of the title bar of this theme and also the font/style of the title, top link bar, menus..etc. Is there a way to do this?

Please note: I am using WSS 3.0 and I am not the Administrator of the sharepoint. I am only the site admin of some sites on this sharepoint. I can do some basic customization using SPD.

Basically, what I am trying to do is that I want to set up a sharepoint site, however I want to make it NOT look like a sharepoint site.Well I know this is possible, but for my case it might be just partially possible due to the limitation that I am not the Site collection admin and hence I do not have direct access to the server itself.

What I want is to hide most of the sharepoint links/menus/bars, etc and use my own buttons/hyperlinks etc .. for user to navigate on the sites.

Thanks in advance for your help/advices.

Microsoft ListView Control 6.0 cannot correctly display multibyte characters when running on a 64 bi

With all the regional settings set to Russian and the OS being Russion the ListView Control 6.0 does not display the column headers correctly on the Windows Server 2008 64 bit OS. If we switch to using Microsoft ListView Control, version 5 the columns (text strings) are displayed correctly. I am concerned that using an earlier version is going to cause problems. Is there a better solution other than using version 5? Thanks!

Help Getting ListView To Display Data

I have years of Java experience but am new to .NET development.  I am currently working with C# and Microsoft Visual C# 2008.  Everything has been going well accept for one snag.  I can't get a ListView to display anything.  I've now spent hours on it and it seems I just don't get it.  Below is a sample program of my problem.  I am constructing the ListView in the Form constructor.  It's supposed to have 2 groups with 2 items, but when I run the program, the ListView is empty.  I've played around with trying different view types, but to no avail.  I've reduced it to the bare minimum and still don't get it.  What am I missing? using System; using System.Collections.Generic; using System.ComponentModel; using System.Data; using System.Drawing; using System.Linq; using System.Text; using System.Windows.Forms; namespace DemoFormApp { public partial class Form1 : Form { public Form1() { InitializeComponent(); ListViewGroup group1 = new ListViewGroup("Group One"); ListViewGroup group2 = new ListViewGroup("Group Two"); ListViewItem item1 = new ListViewItem("ABC"); ListViewItem item2 = new ListViewItem("CD"); group1.Items.Add(item1); group2.Items.Add(item2); listView1.Groups.Add(group1); listView1.Groups.Add(group

Can't access a control in a listview layout template with codebehind

While running ItemDetabound upon load of a listivew, I am trying to access the text in a label of the LayoutTemplate of a different Listview.  It works fine if I try access the same labels under the same names if they are in the same listview, but not if they are in a different one.  It was working for a while, can't figure out what I changed, but now says that object doesn't exist.   Here is the html code for the labels: <LayoutTemplate> <table ID="Table2" runat="server" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"> <tr ID="Tr1" runat="server" style="padding-left: 0px"> <th ID="Th1" runat="server" style="text-align: left; white-space:nowrap; "> <asp:Label ID="Label1" runat="server">Label 1</asp:Label> </th> <th ID="Th2" runat="server" style="white-space:nowrap; width: 150px" >

How To "Upload a new document template" to Content Type via Web Service

I hope someone can help me. Let me begin by saying that I'm not a programmer; so I 'may' not get the terminology exactly right, but hopefully someone will know what I mean. I am using SharePoint 2010 along with a 3rd party application that I'm using for creating, managing and executing workflows.  The workflow application I'm using is Nintex Workflow 2010.  As such, I can only use functions, services, commands...etc...that are offered to me by that application. Anyway, what I am trying to do is simply replace a document template that is being used for a particular content type with another document template. For this I believe I need to use the Webs.UpdateContentTypeXmlDocument Method.  More information is provided here (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/websvcwebs.webs.updatecontenttypexmldocument.aspx). The Webs.UpdateContentTypeXmlDocument method requires two parameters..."contentTypeId" and "newDocument". "contentTypeId" - I have got the Content Type ID by clicking on the content type and viewing the URL shown in my browser.  So, I am confident that my content type id is correct and is "0x010100C392CF11DE923A4E8AB9018B0A42119303". "newDocument" - The MSDN article states...'A string that represents the XML document to replace the existing XML document.".  To be honest, I'm not 100%
