Where is the ClientSize property in the new world of wpf forms ?

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 05, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WPF

In the old world forms, I used the ClientSize property to adjust the forms size indirectly, but in the new world forms (wpf) I don't find a ClientSize property. I would like to be able to control the size of the client area of a wpf form, how can I do that without the ClientSize property ?

Hello World to C# Threading Part 1

In this post we will see how we can implement simple threading. Why do we need threading? When you want you application to do more then one thing at same time, then you need to implement threading. One usual and common scenario would be when your application needs to get data from some other resource like web services and you don't want you application GUI to be freeze during this time. In that sort of case you will run the code to access web services in separate thread so your application GUI won't freeze. The System.Threading namespace .NET provide interfaces to implement multi threading.

Routing for Web Forms in ASP.NET 4.0

posted a prototype demonstrating how one could use Routing within Web Forms. This is something you can do today with ASP.NET 3.5 SP1, because of the work we did to separate Routing from ASP.NET MVC. I would have liked to include Web Form Routing as part of the Routing feature when we were working on SP1, but we didn't have the time to do so in a robust manner before SP1 was locked down.

Application Architecture in Windows Forms 2.0

Applications have special support in Windows Forms. For starters, you can manage and tailor your application's lifetime, and, when the work flow is disrupted by an unhandled exception, you can choose from several methods of response. Then, there are several application models that you can employ, including Single Document Interface (SDI) and Multiple Document Interface (MDI) applications, each of which can support either multiple-instance or single-instance mode, the former the VS05 default and the latter requiring special consideration. All applications, however, can discover and use a wide variety of information about the system and environment they execute in.

Application Architecture in Windows Forms 2.0-Single-MDI Applications

Consider an MDI application like Microsoft Excel; files opened from the file system (by double-clicking) are all opened as separate child windows within the parent Excel window.7 For the first instance of an MDI application to open a new child window to display the file that was passed to the second instance of the application, the second instance must be able to communicate with the initial instance.

Explained: Forms Authentication in ASP.NET

This module explains how forms authentication works in ASP.NET version 2.0. It explains how IIS and ASP.NET authentication work together, and it explains the role and operation of the FormsAuthenticationModule class.

Using Forms Authentication in ASP.NET - Part 1

Classic ASP developers often had to "roll their own" authentication scheme, however, in ASP.NET much of the grunt work has been taken out. This article outlines how things have changed and how FormsAuthentication can be used to secure a Web site with a minimal amount of code.

ASP.NET Forms Authentication - Part 1

Often, in legacy Web applications, users authenticate themselves via a Web form. This Web form submits the user's credentials to business logic that determines their authorization level. Upon successful authentication, the application then submits a ticket in the form of a cookie, albeit a hard cookie or session variable. This ticket contains anything from just a valid session identification access token to customized personalization values.

.A timeout is specified in minutes. This is "time since last request" not the "time since login". If a login is indicated to be persistent (described later) this is ignored.
.A protection method is specified for the cookie.
Next I wanted to specify a folder to which access is restricted to people who have logged in. To do this I entered the following code in the web.config file (beneath

abstract away the source of the connection string using a class with a static property.

ASP.NET provides a configuration system we can use to keep our applications flexible at runtime. In this article we will examine some tips and best practices for using the configuration system for the best results.

The element of a web.config file is a place to store connection strings, server names, file paths, and other miscellaneous settings needed by an application to perform work. The items inside appSettings are items that need to be configurable depending upon the environment, for instance, any database connection strings will change as you move your application from a testing and staging server into production.

Let's abstract away the source of the connection string using a class with a static property.

How to Localize Windows Forms and Change the Language at Runtime

Localization is the process of customizing your application to a particular language, culture or locale. Visual Studio provides support for localizing Windows Forms with much ease. In this article, we will see how to localize windows forms and give the user the ability to change to his preferred language at runtime.
When you run a localized application, the appearance is determined by two culture values. The UICulture property is used to specify which resource files will be loaded for the form. The Culture property, on the other hand, determines how strings such as dates, numerals, and currency amounts are formatted.
Let us see the steps required to create a localized form. You can then expand this example and adopt the same approach for the rest of the forms in your project
