Wrong window height when running the WPF App

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 28, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WPF


I have the XAML code below with a fixed width and height but when I run the application it is changing the height automatically. How can I fix this?

Here's the code:

<Window x:Class="Vodia.Clinica.LoginWindow"
    Title="Clínica - Login" Height="225" Width="388" Topmost="True" WindowStartupLocation="CenterScreen" WindowStyle="None" ResizeMode="NoResize">
    <Border BorderBrush="Black" BorderThickness="1">
          <ColumnDefinition Width="70" />
          <ColumnDefinition Width="*" />

        <Border Grid.Column="0" Grid.Row="1" Background="LightGray"></Border>

        <Image Height="32" HorizontalAlignment="Left" Margin="21,26,0,0" Name="imgCadeado" VerticalAlignment="Top" Width="32" Source="/Vodia.Clinica;component/Images/base_key_32.png" />
        <Label Content="Usuário" Grid.Column="1"

IE Process Start and Window Height

Hi, I'm working on a tool for cross-browser testing: the idea being that a WinForms app will open a range of URLs over a range of browsers, and save each out as a screenshot. I have a problem with Internet Explorer though - namely that the opened window thinks it's a lot larger than it actually is... Background: I've got some javascript/jQuery, that happily reads a parameter from a URL, and scrolls a page down - so for example http://mypage/?scroll=1 will show the top part of a web page, http://mypage/?scroll=2 shows the second part, and so forth. The scrolling mechanism uses $(window).height() and $(document).height() - both of which are standard javascript methods that work happily.   $(document).ready(function () { var windowHeight = $(window).height(); var documentHeight = $(document).height(); alert("Window Height: " + windowHeight + "px, Document Height: " + documentHeight + "px" ); });   If I open my url in IE normally, it picks up (for example) a window height of 880px - which is correct since my screen is 1050px high, minus a bit for the IE toolbars/furniture. In my WinForms application, I can open IE happily with one of the scrollable urls - namely   process.StartInfo.CreateNoWindow = false ; process.StartInfo.WindowStyle = ProcessWindowStyle.Maximized; process.StartInfo.FileName = "iexpl

Good afternoon. I need to create a dialog wpf-window with the constant height. One can see a window height in wpf-editor, and set this value to MinHeight and MaxHeight properties.

What's the bug? Tell me please, how to make a dialog wpf-window with the constant height?

Show grand total running total in GridView Footer

In many scenarios we need to display Running total as well as Grand total in GridView footer. In this post i will try to explain in an easy way that how we can display running total & Grand total in a GridView footer combindly. To explain this solution using an example here i use a sales order report. The report contains all sales order amount in a tabular way. I will use a GridView to display sales order amount and use GridView footer to display Running total & Grand total. Let we have a customer table with id and name column plus an orders table with OrderID,CustomerID,OrderDate & Amount. Now our goal is to show all customers order with amount as well as page wise running total & grand total. Note that running total is necessary when you enable paging in a GridView where as Grand total is always you can consider.

Wrong Account being used to access files - Help - No Impersonation


I run a simple .aspx website on a Windows Server 2008 machine.

There is NO impersonation, and System.Security.Principal.WindowsIdentity.GetCurrent().Name returns NT AUTHORITY\NETWORK SERVICE, which it the account which the application pool runs. In my web.config, I have <authentication mode="Forms">.


I tried to test the security of the application and server by removing file permissions to the .aspx files. I was greatly worried when the website continued to run without problem (it should not have been able to read the .aspx files).

By turning on file level auditing, I discovered that the .aspx files were being read by the machine$ account (if the machine is called Serv1, then the files would be read by the Serv1$ account, which seems to have access to all files on the local machine).


Is this a security breach or is this behaviour by design ?

Please can somebody assist, as I am worried.

Very Basic Question - Error message running first page


Hi Everyone,

I am running Windows 7 and I have gone into Control Panel and activated all of the IIS Functions.

The web application I am running was downloaded from the net (and has worked on other machines previously).  Once I downloaded it, I moved it into C:/inetpub/wwwroot/code/main.asp

I am a bit of a novice at this!  But I am hoping someone can point me in the right direction!


I get the following error when I try and run the web application through IE:

"An error occurred on the server when processing the URL. Please contact the system administrator. If you are the system administrator please click here to find out more about this error."

(When i click the "click here" button it just goes to the IIS site).


Appreciate any help I can get!
