WPF usercontrol in Winforms (RES Powerfuse)

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 29, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WPF


I've created an application in winforms that uses a WPF usercontrol. In a normal environment everything works fine.

When I install the app. at our client, which uses RES Powerfuse for desktop management I get an error.


add value to collection of type 'system.windows.controls.UIelementcollection' threw an exception. Line number 5 and line position 14


Then app. starts and everything seems normal, except the WPF usercontrol isn't showed.

I tried contacting the guys from RES Powerfuse, but I didn't get any response. So maybe there is someone in this forum that has a solution or workaround ;)

Thanx in advance.

With best regards,

UserControl, CustomControl Design Time Support errors IOC, Dependency Injection, MVP

  Hi, is there a way to completely disable design time support for CustomControl, and UserControl ? I have about 30 UserControls and 10 CustomControls in my WinForms app, which contains some Dependency Injections and IOC stuff in constructors and Load handlers. I have lots of large UserControls containing smaller UserControls (CompositeView). All my UI code is pretty dynamic and the only thing i need to do at design time is to drag&drop containers in other containers (UserControls). And now i have a hard time doing this, because i have to wrap all constructors and Load Handlers in CurrentProccess!="devenv"... and when I'm Implementing some new View interface (which consist lots of properties) in UserControl all those properties by default throw NotImplementedException and i don't always need to implement them immediately but still i need to be able to run this code for testing. Besides, then i have to clean up designer generated class because it adds unnecessary null value property initializations, and then it way add some other ____ code, and so on.... Imagine UserControl with 10-15 nested UserControls, and then i try to open it in Form Designer and get ObjectReference NULL exception (for IOC) or some NotSupported NotImplemented exceptions (for properties) without adequate CallStack available! There is a CallStack but there is no trace in it to my Code (

Using an Application Resource in Nested UserControl

Hello This problem has been niggling me for months and I just can't seem to get to the bottom of it. I have a UserControl, let's call it 'UC_List', and the ListBox in it uses a Style which I have declared in my Application.xaml file. When working with UC_List.xaml everything seems fine. I then place 'UC_List' into a UserControl, let's call it 'UC_Summary'. I have declared the namespace at the top of UC_Summary.xaml. The xaml code in UC_Summary now has an Error: Could not create an instance of type 'UC_Summary'. Now I cannot see anything in the Design window, only a warning saying 'Problem Loading, the document contains errors that must be fixed...' However when I run the application everything works fine! After a lot of trial and error I found that the cause of the problem seems to be the Style referenced in the Application.xaml. If I declare the Style in UserControl.Resources at the top of UC_List the error goes away and the graphics in UC_Summary return. I've so far duplicated my Styles into individual UserControls to work around the problem but this could easily lead to inconsistancies. If anyone can suggest anything I would be really pleased to try it. Thank you. Regards Chris

Property of a base UserControl it's not handled correctly

Hello,I have a class that is a base class for my server controls. Inside this class I have a property that can take values from an enumeration.public enum PanelModeEnum { Add = 1, Edit = 2, ReadOnly = 3 } public class BaseControl : System.Web.UI.UserControl { #region Event Handling Management #endregion public PanelModeEnum PanelMode { get; set; } public virtual void ChangePanelMode(PanelModeEnum newMode) { this.PanelMode = newMode; } } I have then several user controls that inherits from this BaseControl and that I add into aspx pages declaratively<gsl:PhoneNumberUC ID="ucPhoneDetail" runat="server" PhoneNumberType="Home" />I would like to show one the derived BaseControl classes inside a ModalPopupExtender using server-side code. Before doing this I call the ChangePanelMode with a value from the PanelModeEnumucPhoneDetail.PhoneNumberType = ptype; ucPhoneDetail.ChangePanelMode(PanelModeEnum.Add); this.mpePopupPhone.Show(); But when, inside the inherited user control I check for the PanelMode property likeif (this.PanelMode == PanelModeEnum.Add) { ... } the value of this.PanelMode is always equal to zero. Why?Kindly regards

Best approach to handle concurrent requests in winforms

I have a windows client application which would be used many users. This application submit requests to run a workflow (note that this is not a WWF or WCF service, its a class library thats gonna do some processing). What would be the best approach to code this?

Hi All, I have added a popup type usercontrol to a form which I call like this: MyUserControl = New AdvancedControl MyUserControl.StartPosition = FormStartPosition.Manual MyUserControl.TopLevel = False MyUserControl.Location = Me.Parent.PointToScreen(New Point(Me.Left, Me.Bottom)) ParentForm.Controls.Add(MyUserControl) MyUserControl.Show()  How can I detect when a user clicks somewhere other than the usercontrol and then dispose of the usercontrol.  The lost focus and deactivate events dont seem to fire.

Nested controls in UserControl return null (FindControl)

Hi everyone, I have a very weird issue. I have a UserControl that has some controls inside. I want to refer those controls after, in another postback. But when I try to get them the ".Controls" property of my controls returns null. I'm working on vs2008 Here is the sample code: public partial class MyUserControl : System.Web.UI.UserControl { protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e) { foreach (Control control in this.Controls) { Response.Write(control.ClientID); } } private void MyTable() { Table table = new Table(); TableRow row = new TableRow(); TableCell cell = new TableCell(); CheckBox check = new CheckBox(); check.ID = "theId"; check.Text = "My Check"; check.AutoPostBack = true; cell.Controls.Add(check); row.Cells.Add(cell); check = new CheckBox(); check.ID = "theOther"; check.AutoPostBack = true; check.Text = "My Other Check"; cell = new TableCell(); cell.Controls.Add(check); row.Cells.Add(cell); table.Rows.Add(row); this.Controls.Add(table); } protected override void Render(HtmlTextWriter writer) { MyTable(); base.Render(writer); } } And in the Default.aspx is like:<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeBehind="Default.cs" Inherits="Tester.Default" %> &

UserControl with a control property?

Hi... I have defined a UserControl wich needs to reference another control like this: <ctrl:Cook TheList="listView1" DefaultFileName="MyRecipe"></ctrl:Cook> The code behind of the control has the property defined:         public ListView TheList { get; set; } But I have a runtime error saying: 'ListView' type does not have a public TypeConverter class. And in design time I get: Property TheList of type ListView cannot be specified as string.   I know WPF is trying to read a string instead of a ListView, but dont know the magic solution. Maybe a converter? Please suggest the simpler solution you can, because this is not a vital requirement on the app. Thanks in advance for any help

Winforms running in WPF solution loses XP style

We have a Winforms solution that we are converting to a WPF solution.  In our WPF solution, we add existing Winforms objects which works great.  My problem is when I compile and run the new .exe created from the WPF solution, my Winforms which appeared as XP style in the Winforms solution, now appears like the old Win95 style (buttons are square instead of rounded corners, etc.)... just kinda ugly. Is there some setting in the WPF solution where I can tell it to make my Winforms appear in the XP style? Thanks in advance for your help.
