Problem with Pixel Shader 3.0 support in WPF SP1.

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 03, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WPF
I've tried custom effects in WPF with .NET 3.5 SP1. It's amazing feature!
But I tried to compile my pixel shader with ps_3_0 profile and then WPF application throws exception.
So, if I have graphics card with support ps_2_0, ps_3_0 and even ps_4_0, can I use pixel shader profile 3_0 or it's impossible today in WPF? If it's impossible - why? and will WPF dev team provide ps_3_0 support in future releases?

Pixel Shader in WPF, are user created shaders run on hardware or in software?

In general, are user made shaders used in WPF, are they run on the video cards hardware? or are they all run in software mode?   I think I read that the default shaders are run in hardware but that user made shaders are not?

Can Pixel-shader 3.0 based shader effect be used to render to a RenderTargetBitmap?


Hello -

I have written a custom shader effect using PS 3.0 that is working great on screen, however I need to have the ability to create a 'snap shot' of the control and write it out to disk.  I have been attempting to use RenderTargetBitmap, however the shader is not being applied to the rendering.  In another forum on stack overflow I posted a similar question and was told that PS 3.0 does not have a software fall back.  I would like to hear from the MS community if that indeed is the case.  If it is, can someone out there tell me how to capture a control that has been rendered using a PS 3.0 pixel shader.  It would be best if I were able to render the control off screen rather than attempting to capture an image off of the screen.

I wrote a VERY simple program to test the ability to capture PS 3.0 rendering to a RenderTargetBit map.  the code is below:

Hopefully someone out there has a solution!  Unfortunately I can not fall back to PS 2.0...

ASP.NET, HTML, JavaScript Snippet Support (VS 2010 and .NET 4.0 Series)

This post covers another useful improvement in VS 2010 - HTML/ASP.NET/JavaScript snippet support. Snippets allow you to be more productive within source view by allowing you to create chunks of code and markup that you can quickly apply and use in your application with a minimum of character typing.

Visual Studio has supported the concept of "snippets" for VB and C# in previous releases - but not for HTML, ASP.NET markup and JavaScript. With VS 2010 we now support snippets for these content types as well.

Multiple database support with Entity Framework

One of the features introduced in Entity Framework is being database independent. Which mean each database provider can support Entity Framework by implementing its provider.

This feature allows you build applications independent from the underplaying database provider. In this post I'm going to show how to build an application that support multiple databases using same conceptual model made by Entity Framework.

.NET 3.5 Adds Named Pipes Support

you want a named pipe server, all you have to do is create some instances of NamedPipeServerStream to handle each client connection. I stole the following code straight from the MSDN documentation.

Problem to group radio button across gridview rows

In general no one can easily group or make a single selection from radio button list inside gridview rows. There are a lot of way to make a single or unique selection from list.

Thats why i tried to group the radio buttons in vertical manner. Let i have a requirement like below:

ASP.Net Caching problem ??


I'm having a problem with an asp.net 3.0 application using a gridview to display data.  The problem seems to be that despite a brand new .selectCommand being sent to the sqlDataSource, the gridview starts displaying data from *someone else's* query.  For example, user A is logged in and will be working fine until a few page submissions later when the gridview data starts suddenly showing information that belongs to another user. 

This is my first asp.net application, though I've been working with classic asp and ADO for years so I'm used to sending a SQL string and getting back the results from that string.  Apparently there is a complex caching system which is interferring which I do not at all understand so at this point I just want to stop the server from caching any data whatsoever.  Is this possible?

Any and all help will be much appreciated!!

RaiseEvent problem


I have a parent page ProdView.aspx and two static UserControls, UC1 and UC2. Each UC is in an Ajax accordion pane and the accordion inside an updatepanel.

UC1 has a Gridview footer with couple of textboxes and a link button that fires an Add Row insert procedure. I want to Raise an event that will rebind the UC2 after the row insert in UC1.

First I created the sub delegate and event in UC1:

  • Public Delegate Sub MyRefresh(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As CommandEventArgs)
  • Public Event Refresh_UC1 As MyRefresh

In the same UC1 the Insert procedure that fires the insert and RaiseEvent:

Sub PricingGrid_Insert(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)
       Dim myConn As SqlConnection = New SqlConnection(ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings("LocalSqlServer").ConnectionString)
       Dim myCom As SqlCommand = New SqlCommand("AddRow", myConn)
       myCom.CommandText = "AddRow"
       myCom.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure


Gridview Enable Selection Problem



I have a gridview with Enable selection and Enable Paging equals to TRUE.

I also set the PageSize of my gridview to 4 so that I only displays 4 rows per page.

The problem is when I click the pager in the bottom of my gridview, my gridview is disappearing and no records appear.

Here is code behind of my gridview:

If e.Row.RowType = DataControlRowType.DataRow Then
                e.Row.Attributes("style") = "cursor:pointer"

                e.Row.Cells(2).Attributes.Add("onclick", Page.ClientScript.GetPostBackEventReference(sender, "Select$" & e.Row.RowIndex.ToString))
                e.Row.Cells(3).Attributes.Add("onclick", Page.ClientScript.GetPostBackEventReference(sender, "Select$" & e.Row.RowIndex.ToString))
                e.Row.Cells(4).Attributes.Add("onclick", Page.ClientScript.GetPostBackEventReference(sender, "Select$" & e.Row.RowIndex.ToString))
                e.Row.Cells(5).Attributes.Add("onclick", Page.ClientScript.GetPostBackEventReference(sender, "Select$" & e.Row.RowIndex.ToString))
                e.Row.Cells(6).Attributes.Add("onclick", Page.ClientScript.GetPostBackEventReference(sender, "Select$" & e.Row.RowIndex.ToString))
