GDI+: A Primer on Building a Color Picker User Control with GDI+ in Visual Basic .NET or C#


Although most developers and APIs use the RGB scheme when working with colors, it's not the only available way to represent or select colors. For instance, the standard Windows color-selection dialog box allows you to work with the HSL color scheme in an indirect way. In this article, the author describes several color selection schemes, and uses GDI+ (via the System.Drawing namespace) to create a component that makes it possible for your own applications to provide a simpler, friendlier color chooser. Along the way, you'll get tips to help you use GDI+ in your own apps.

Use update progress control to change image control imageurl

UPDATE: Apologies for the previous formatting error - hopefully the post is now more readable... Hi I have a button with an image control next to it. Before the button is clicked, the image control "ConfirmedStatusImage" shows a "cancel.png" image. When the button has been clicked (and some other code successfully executed), then I change the imageurl for the "theConfirmedStatusImage" to show a "ok.png" image. Quite a bit of time can often pass between clicking the button and the associated code executing, so I have an ajax update progress control that shows a "bluespinner.gif" image while the page is updating after the button click. At the moment, the update progress updating image appears next to the "ConfirmedStatusImage" control. However, I would like to change things so that when the update progress starts, the imageurl of "ConfirmedStatusImage" changes from "cancel.png" to the update progress image (i.e., the "bluespinner.gif"). Then, when the update is complete, then the image should change to the "ok.png" image. My question is: how can I achieve this? As far as I can tell, the update progress control does not have any events that I can hook into. Also, placing the "ConfirmedStatusImage" inside the ProgressTemplate would not work either, as this only displays

change TD background/foreground color problem.

I have some javascript that is suppose to change the color of a table TD. the CSS file has an entry like this .tdcommand {} HTML TD is like <td colspan="2" height="162" valign="top" class="tdcommand"> if i put a background-color:red or whatever in the CSS file, the color is shown correctly. If i change it via a script it doesnt seem to have any impact. using the alert() to post info, i've found its entering my function correctly and getting the correct info. the important part of the function is thisfor (var i = 0; i < document.styleSheets[0][CSSRules].length; i++) { if (document.styleSheets[0][CSSRules][i].selectorText == obj) { document.styleSheets[0][CSSRules][i].style[prop] = color document.getElementById("opt_" + option).innerHTML = "'" + color + "'" } }   as i said, using the alert() i can validate that its finding the class ok (obj = .tdcommand) and the property is correct (background-color) and the innerHTML update is working fine. I use this same function to set other things, such as text color and highlighting of span's without any problem. what am i missing?   Justin
