Splash Screen Build Action

I have an application that has the buildaction property of an image set to splashscreen. When I build this application i'm receiving an error which reads:

Error 1 No overload for method 'Show' takes 1 arguments 

Code from App.g.cs below:

Splash screen dismisses dialog box shown at startup!

  
Hi, I've stumbled upon an oddity and figured I'd mention it in case someone at MS would like to perhaps do something about it. In another thread, I've discussed a problem occuring if the Application constructor invokes MessageBox.Show. I worked around that by deferring showing the dialog box until the construction of the app's main window. Now I have added a splash screen, and weird things began to happen: The splash screen displays, then the dialog box appears (with an important warning and giving the user two options to choose from - one allowing the app to run, but resulting in loss of data!), and then both the splash screen and the dialog box disappears! The dialog box had OK and Cancel buttons, and apparently the splash screen decided it was OK to run and lose data, because my code ran exactly as if the user had in fact clicked OK! This isn't really an issue for me now, as I don't really need the splash screen at all. But it sure could be an issue for someone, so I figured I'd put it "on the record". To reproduce: Create a new WPF app In the MainWindow constructor, invoke MessageBox.Show Add an image file to the project, and set it's build action to SplashScreen Run and behold the strangeness unfold! If you need further convincing, set the image's build action to None and run again, to confirm for yourself that the dialog box now behaves as one would

Unable to connect to local host service when a splash screen is show before start the services

  
Hi all:


I want to show a splash screen before start the local host services, the host can be open without error, however the client (Form1) is not able to connect to the service. Without the splash screen, every thing work fine. Any idea why ?

Here is the code.

Splash Screen not displaying anymore on startup

  

I have a PNG file with its Build Action property set to "SplashScreen."  Up until a couple weeks ago it was displaying fine on startup.  At some point (not sure exactly when) it stopped being displayed on start up.  This is a 4.0 WPF app targeting the full framework.  Any ideas why the splash screen won't display anymore?  I have added new image files to the app (both png and jpg) and set their Build Action to splash screen just to test, but it still won't display on startup.

Splash Screen in Silverlight 4

  
In this post I will show you how to create the custom splash screen for your Silverlight application. You have seen many software which use nice splash screen during loading of the software applications like Microsoft office, excel and many others. I have also created splash screen for my desktop applications which I have developed during my professional life. But I didn't created any for the web application which I have developed in asp.net. But now the Silverlight provide the functionality of the splash screen. Splash screens provide something interesting and creative to increase anticipation and excitement for the application.

Snap It! - How to take screen shot using .Net

  
We all would have used snap shots (screen shots) to illustrate bugs or behavior or something that others could understand by seeing them. For taking snap shots we just hit the "Print Screen" key and copy it to Ms Paint and save it. Ever wondered how to programmatically take a snap shot? Then this article is for you.

Use jQuery and ASP.NET AJAX to build a client side Repeater

  
By sending only data to the client, you can profoundly reduce the size of what you send and see a substantial increase in performance. You also allow yourself the ability to easily add features like light-weight sorting and paging on the client. This can not only improve your users' experience, but reduce server load and bandwidth requirements.

    public class categoryRepository
    {
        internal List<categorySearch> FindCategory(string searchText, int maxResults)
        {
            List<categorySearch> category = new List<categorySearch>();
            dbWebEntities storedb = new dbWebEntities(); 

            var getcat = storedb.Categories.ToList();

            {
                category.Add(new categorySearch { Category_GUID = item.Cat_GUID, Category_Name = item.Category_Name});
            }

            var result = from c in category
                         where c.Category_Name.Contains(searchText)
                         orderby c.Category_Name
                       

Upload a Print Screen?

  

Is it possible to Print Screen and then immediately Paste into a .NET app and upload to a server?  I'd like to skip the step of the user having to first paste the screen into an image program and save as a jpg, gif, etc.  Thanks!

Detect Browser Screen Size??

  

Hi Everyone,  I need to detect the size of the user's screen for mobile devices (especially the BlackBerry). I've read a lot of pages that seem to refer me to the Request.Browser object, but I'm finding that this object doesn't have the correct values. For example, I have a BlackBerry and when I use the Request.Browser to get the screen size, it tells me it is 640x480. Well, I know it's not that big since an image of 300px wide just barely fits. Also, when I run on my desktop browser, it also says my screen is 640x480. I can assure you, it is not 640x480! ha!

  How does anyone reliably get the browser's screen size?? Do I have to revert to some kind of JavaScript? If so, where can I read more about it? Will it be any more reliable? Someone must have an idea about this. Thanks in advance!!
