Enable/Disable Buttons based on another control property

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 07, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WPF

Say i have a tab control that displays data of various types, eg EditorTabViewModel (eg. code view of WYSIWYG), PreviewTabViewModel (eg. preview of WYSIWYG) both inheriting from TabViewModel . The implementation is similar to the tutorial on MSDN

I want to enable/disable buttons depending on the active tab, whether its an EditorTabViewModel or a PreviewTabViewModel and maybe based even on properties of the ViewModel?. How can I achieve this?

Creating a volume control slider/setting one template property based on another

So, what I want to do, is to make a volume control that looks like a right angle triangle with the 90 degree angle on the bottom right, and then when you click on it, the area to the left of the selected point is shown in a different color.  In other words, I've created a slider with the right background, what I can't do, is work out how to show the selected area by filling in the triangle.  I have worked out how to bind the height of my triangle on the left to the value of the control, but right now, the rate of rise is exactly half of what I need it to be.  I need to know how to change the template for the area to the left of the selection ( which is the repeat button ) so that the background is twice the height that it is right now.  No matter what size I make the slider, the area is always 1/2 the size it needs to be, so I am sure if I could get it to double inside my template, it would work fine. <ResourceDictionary xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"     xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml">       <Style x:Key="SliderButtonStyle" TargetType="{x:Type RepeatButton}">         <Setter Property="SnapsToDevicePixels" Value="true"/>         <

Enable/Disable controls dynamically based on User settings

In my project I have a requirement that all controls in each window shall be enabled or visible dependent on user and the admin shall be able to change is a user will be able to use or see the control. I made a very simple test application that creates a user and gives him a list (will be loaded from db in real app) of the name of the controls in the window and also his settings. Then after initializing the window I use reflection to find the controls and set their isenabled/visibility properties. This solution does the thing but I'm wondering if there is a better solution. The main issue here is that each control must be set per user and thus roles wont work appropriate and also that I need to be able to change the settings at runtime.

Enable/Disable controls dynamically based on User settings


I need an elegant way to enable/disable controls in my WPF application at run time using an external settings file(xml file)

I know this can be done using binding with Visibility/ IsEnabled property for all the controls, but how will i do change that in run time.

I also want to know whether combining the Settings.settings file and use bindings is the way to go.

There is documentation for VS2005 but not for VS2008 related to Settings.settings file approach.

I need recommendation for this type of features in WPF apps

Any help will be highly appreciated.

Custom Server Control Property not maintaining state


I have created a server control consisting of a TextArea and a div under it.  My goal is to create my own asp:TextArea type control.  the div is for a Character count of the text area and seems to work ok but i added a CharacterCountVisible property to the control that is always returning true.  See Proptery definition below


<Bindable(False), Category("Appearance"), DefaultValue("True"), Localizable(True)> Property CharacterCountVisible() As Boolean
        Return _CountBoxVisible
    End Get
    Set(ByVal value As Boolean)
        _CountBoxVisible = value
    End Set
End Property

Note the _CountBoxVisible variable is define inside the class as :

Dim _CountBoxVisible as Boolean = True

What I am trying to do is give the user/coder the option to show/utilize the char count feature.  Can make it disappear with textarea1.CharacterCountVisible = False but setting it to true will not make it display.


What am i missing





Category attribute of user control property does not work correctly in categories tab.



I have a User Control (ascx) and a property which a want to display in my categories tab in Visual Studio in the category named "Styles".

[Category("Styles"), DefaultValue(""), Description("The value for formating something.")]
public String MyFormatProperty
set { /* the code for set */; }
get { /* the code for get */; }

And here is the problem: Actually I do not need a get, because I only have to set the property (write only property). But when I omit the get, the property is displayed in the "Misc" category in the categories tab in Visual Studio. Only when I code the get as well, then the property is displayed correctly in the "Styles" category in the categories tab in Visual Studio.

Does anybody know why? How can I display the category correctly only with set?

Thanks, S.

ISAPI Extensions: Creating a DLL to Enable HTTP-based File Uploads with IIS


The MIME-compliant content type, called multipart/form-data, makes writing HTML that uploads files almost trivial. On the server side though, ASP does not have a way to access data in the multipart/form-data format. The most flexible way to access the uploaded file is through a C++ ISAPI Extension DLL. This article describes a reusable ISAPI extension DLL that allows you to upload images and files without writing C++ code. It is coupled with a few COM components that make it readily reusable for ASP development. With .NET, this whole process is much easier, and this article shows preliminary code that uploads files using ASP.NET features.

WinInet: Enable HTTP Communication in Windows-Based Client Applications


The Internet provides the infrastructure for applications to communicate, and that can include non-UI communication between Win32-based applications. If you think beyond the standard browser usage of HTTP, you can use this protocol to retrieve information from Win32-based applications and save it to a Web server. After explaining how HTTP can be used in this way, this article shows how to use Microsoft SQL Server, ASP, IIS, WinInet, and Visual Basic to implement two examples. The first reports usage data-how often an application is used and by whom. The second monitors application errors and reports error details for use by helpdesk staff or engineers in the debugging process.

Checkbox disable/enable


I hope someone can be kind enough to help/advise me with this.

I have a web form with multiple checkboxes on it , with one of the checkboxes as the main (controlling) checkbox.  By this I mean that when this main checkbox is checked then all the other checkboxes need to be disable and when its unchecked these other checkboxes need to be enable.

I've found (plenty of) code to do this in javascript but i would really prefer to to it in vb(.net), if possible.

I hope all this makes sense to you.


User Control and DataSourceID Property


I created a user control (.ascx) that contains a paging-user-control, a repeater and some other controls.
I want to use the property DataSourceID. How should I get the data from the datasource and when?
What is the recommended way?

I did it this way:
- Create a method to get the data by reflection, like:

private void PerformSelect()
	if (!String.IsNullOrEmpty(this.DataSourceID))
		Control control = Page.FindControl(this.DataSourceID);
		if (control == null)
			control = Parent.FindControl(this.DataSourceID);

		MethodInfo method = control.GetType().GetMethod("Select");
		IEnumerable data = (IEnumerable)method.Invoke(control, new object[0]);

		this.DataSource = data;
 - Call this method
In PageLoad when no postback
Changing the current page (paging-user-control)
Changing the current tab (tab-user-control)
Switching Visibility to true

I think that way is not the optimum, is there any better way?
Do you have any suggestions or links?

Thanks for your help, Andreas

User Control as Composite Control Property


I have a composite control (Called Dialog) which has a property "ContentControl"

At design time, I'd like this property to bind to a user control that is on the page.

When I add the items in the designer, the designer loads as expected.

However, when I try to run the web page, I get the following error:

Parser Error Message: Cannot create an object of type 'System.Web.UI.UserControl' from its string representation 'EditTerm1' for the 'ContentControl' property.

Please let me know if there is another way to bind a user control as a property of a composite control.


Designer Code:


	<cc1:Dialog ID="Dialog1" runat="server" Buttons="SaveCancel" 
Title="Edit Term" ContentControl="EditTerm1" />
