.NET Internals: Tailor Your Application by Building a Custom Forms Designer with .NET


The design-time architecture of Windows Forms in the .NET Framework has made development much more flexible than it had been with MFC. With Windows Forms, you can drag one of your custom controls from the toolbox and drop it onto the Visual Studio design surface and even though Windows Forms knows nothing about the control, it's able to host it and let you manipulate its properties-not possible in MFC. In this article, the author discusses what's going on under the covers as you design your forms and then walks through the creation of a bare-bones forms designer.

Designer crashes sometimes because application path becomes C:\Windows\system32

Sometimes VS crashes as it seems to execute the WPF designer in its directories or C:\Windows\system32. Sometimes it works fine as we can preview saved settings in the Designer. I have set application path as follows : ConfigFile = Path.Combine(AppDomain.CurrentDomain.BaseDirectory, "mixer.ser");<br/> When VS crashes I accept to debug it, the exception is : {"Access to the path 'C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\\Common7\\IDE\\mixer.ser' is denied."}    System.Exception {System.UnauthorizedAccessException} ... or c:\windows\system32 Any ideas on how to fix this ?   Thank you !

Hosting web service inside Windows Application

  I would like to host my web service inside windows application. I prepared a short example basing on: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa529311.aspx I have 2 projects created with default templates: Web Service project where I did not change anything: namespace WebService1 { [WebService(Namespace = "http://tempuri.org/")] [WebServiceBinding(ConformsTo = WsiProfiles.BasicProfile1_1)] public class Service : System.Web.Services.WebService { public Service() { } [WebMethod] public string HelloWorld() { return "Hello World"; } } } Windows Project in which I changed only the main form class: public partial class Form1 : Form { public Form1() { InitializeComponent(); Uri address = new Uri("soap.tcp://localhost/TestService"); SoapReceivers.Add(new EndpointReference(address), typeof(WebService1.Service)); } } The problem is that when I compile and run this Windows Application, I can`t discover this Web Service. There must be something wrong in my solution. Could you please help me by telling what may be wrong? Thank you for help in advance.MCP

Can anyone specify what user should be mapped to solve this issue?

Hosting Google Maps in a Microsoft WPF application using XAML

With the Google Maps API for Flash, it is now very easy to add Google Maps technology to your Microsoft Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) application using XAML.

The Google Maps API for Flash runs as a Flash application inside the Flash player control. The Flash Player control is embedded in the WPF application and code glue allows your Native .NET C# or VB.NET code to interface for the Google Maps control in Flash.

This sample project demonstrates you how to insert Google Maps in your WPF application, how to access the Google Maps API and interface with the Maps control, and how to receive information back from the control in the WPF application.

The final application looks like this:

problem in applying SharePoint Designer Workflows to Lists in my Web application


Hi Mark,

I am so happy finding your forum.

I have installed MOSS 2007 with SP2 on a Windows Server 2008. I had no problem in configuring and creating Web Applications and Sites. However, there seems to be a problem in applying SharePoint Designer Workflows to Lists in my Web application. The problem is that the workflow I create to start automatically when an item in the List is changed doesn't work. The workflows works fine if it's started manually from an item in the list, but it's doesn’t work when it's started automatically with an item change in the list. I have checked the workflow on another MOSS 2007 installation on Server 2003 and it works fine. Have I missed something in the configurations?

Thanks for y

Fox OLEDB Provider crashes Application Designer (BDC)

I am trying to access some data stored on a Fox Database by using App Designer to connect to it. After trying to use ODBC and seeing that MS consider this driver deprecated and suggests using OLE DB instead I downloaded this provider for Visual Fox Pro and try to connect to the DB.
Everything was going fine on Adding a LOB system, typing the conn string for OLE DB and when I hit Connect I even could see the table list and Add tables by dragging them to the workspace. My guess here was that the provider and conn string were fine since I could actually see the DB objects, but when I hit the OK button and the App Designer should take me to the tree-view Metadata Objects window and let me do my work, instead it just crashes big time!

The error says Application Definition Designer has stopped working with this Details:
