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.

How do i display a custom message when my ListBox is empty?


I've got a ListBox. Its ItemsSource is Data-Bound to a Dataset.

When there are entries in the Dataset, the ListBox displays them, and it doesn't look so bad.

The ListBox is big, so when its empty it looks weird on the Window.

What i want to do is to display a custom mesasge somewhere inside the listbox(maybe in the center) if there is nothing to display. But i've had no luck sofar.

How could i go about achieving this?

Trouble getting XML to display an image


I'm having a play around with xml. Normally I use .net to take an xml file and do something with the data in it to display it but I know you can do stuff with xslt etc.

I found a site by googling where they were displaying an image straight from the xml but I can't get it to work.

This is sort of the idea I think

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<?xml-stylesheet type="text/css" href="photo-styles.css"?>
<title lang="en">Title</title>
<html:img src="filepath" />

then using the style sheet to do the formatting:

background-color: #ffffff;
width: 100%;
display: block;
margin-bottom: 30pt;
margin-left: 0;
color: #FF0000;
font-size: 20pt;

This doesn't work, does anyone have an idea how to do it like this?

trouble displaying data from selected item in listbox


I have a asp.net web form in which I display registered customers in a listbox. In the listbox I can choose one customer, and click a "Show data"-button. That should display all registered data about the chosen customer in textboxes next to the listbox. This doesn't work and I haven't been able to find where the error lies. Instead of displaiyng the data in the textboxes the error message in:  LabelNoCustomerChosen is displayed. Could it be that the program doesn't find the customer ID? The string that is displayed in the listbox looks like this:

ID Lastname, Firstname

Here's my "Show data"-button click:

protected void ButtonCustData_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)

        string Firstname;
        string Lastname;
        string Street;
        string No;
        int Zip;
        string City;
        string Email;
        string Phone;

        if (ListBoxSearchCust.SelectedItem == null)
            LabelNoCustomerChosen.Visible = tru

Listbox values to display data from database



I have a listbox which comprises of data " systemname" . I have a sql database table with columns ( systemname, ip, downmins,pdowntime,udowntime and reason).

On the basis of the selection from the listbox i want to display the respective records for the systemname with all columns mentioned above.

Now I need to be able to take user entry for the columns (pdowntime,udowntime and reason) from the user either through table or gridview and populate this data in the database.

Note - the listbox is getting populated from the table directly using an sql query at the backend.

ListBox tricky to set in a DataGrid/GridView

Listboxes are very tricky to set selected items in grid - there is no real nice way to do it. It would have been great if Microsoft included a property that accepts an array or comma separated values - or anything! But they only allow each item in the list to be selected individually. The way to do this in a grid is a bit messy, but it is fairly simple to implement. When a row is created (as per the event), select the items of the listbox as per the datagrid source data:

divs do not display side by side


I have two divs. I want them to display side by side, on the same row. Using display:inline-block I can do that. But as soon as I position some text in the bottom right corner of div1, the two divs do not have the same vertical position. They are side by side, but the 2nd div starts at the vertical position of the positioned text in the 1st div.   Why would it do that?  Both Chrome and IE8 render it the same way.

( I am doing the nesting of the divs on the left side so that I can position absolutely within a div and not the page. I can't get text to position in the lower right corner of a div any other way. )
