Change a button's Foreground property using the VSM

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 04, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WPF

I asked a question previously here and just realized I could probably rephrase it in a more compact way:

Using the visual state manager, how can I change the Foreground property on a button? That is, in the button's style "Pressed" Visual state, is there a way to reference the button's Foreground property (as opposed to properties on elements making up the button template itself)?

<Style TargetType="{x:Type Button}">
 <Setter Property="Template">

DataGridView>Edit Columns> Column Read Only property is unwilling to change

Hello, I am facing the following mystery: When changing the read only property of a column to false and reopening the "edit columns" window, it mysteriously turns back to true. Even when closing the designer and changing it in the designer code, the resulting execution does not allow edit, as well as when re-opening the designer you see true again.             this.numberDataGridViewTextBoxColumn1.DataPropertyName = "Number";             this.numberDataGridViewTextBoxColumn1.HeaderText = "Number";             this.numberDataGridViewTextBoxColumn1.Name = "numberDataGridViewTextBoxColumn1";             this.numberDataGridViewTextBoxColumn1.ReadOnly = true;//False is required We thought it might be related to data binding. rebinding the grid did not help as well. The is no other place in the code where it changes. Please advice, Thanks

VisualStateManager: change a property before it starts animation?

i realize that if we "animate" the Visibility property.. it uses the ObjectAnimationUsingKeyFrames animation to set the property after it transits to a new state... how can i change the property before it animates in the new state? i know there is the CurrentStateChanged and CurrentStateChanging event that i can use to set the property.. however... that is ok if you have 2 states.. but for my case i have a couple of states(in my case 7 states)... so if change the visibility in one of the states... the property doesn't switch back automatically when we switched to another state.... my thought of having 7 conditions to change the property just isn't the right way of doing... maybe.... it would be good if the VisualStateManager provides an attachedproperty to set on the specific ObjectAnimationUsingKeyframes to indicate whether the animation property is to be set at the start or at the end of the animation thanks

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

what should i add, or change to maintain the addition on the page at button click, yes i know why, b

 - select day using the drop down list  - select the start date using calender (causes an event), a table is made having the dates of the day selected from the start date and shown to the user.  - the table also contains checkbox for each row in a cell  - the user selects the check boxes he wants  - and clicks the button  - the button calls the method in the .cs file which SHOULD TRAVERSE THE TABLE ROWS TO FIND THE ticked checked boxes and the rest is self explanatory the problem ----------- on calender selection change event nothing is lost, but on button click event all things in table created by code is lost. (as the debugger shows that the row count is zero). i understand that in the page cycle the rows etc added the form by the date change event of the calender are not preserved. fine. but whats the solution. please help i have been searching for a solution desperately. the source --------      <asp:Calendar ID="Calendar1" runat="server"          >         <SelectedDayStyle BorderStyle="Dotted" BorderWidth="4px" />         <TodayDayStyle BorderStyle="Solid" BorderWidth="4px" HorizontalAlign="Center"
