Delphi Win32 MDI Parent with C# Windows Forms child form

I have created an assembly containing a form that i want created as a MDI child form in a Delphi Win32 application's MDI parent control. I can create the .NET form fine from my Delphi code. I can even use the Delphi window handle to let my .NET form be a child in the Win32 application by using the SetParent API. However minimizing the child form makes it disappear (instead of the regular minimize action for MDI children), and it also doesn't cause the MDI container to get scroll bars when you drag the child form under the edge of the MDI container. I have the feeling that the child form is not yet correctly aware that it is a MDI child. For instance, its MdiParent property is null. And i read somewhere that i might need to call some more Win32 API"s to hook everything up correctly. I can't, however, for the life of me not find which ones to call, and where to do it. Is there anyone here that is well versed in hooking up managed Windows Forms with native Win32 applications that can lend a helping hand?

stop flickering when form child appear like normal window



I have created an application with a mdiParent and some mdichilds that when are opened they the forms are set like normal window and FormBorderStyle has value 'None'.

But I want to stop this flickering it is very annoying.

Can somebody tell me how can I do that? I mention that I have created this application in dot.net

Thank you in advance

Printing a active mdi child form

I am making a Windows application. I have written the code for printing the active mdi child using PrintForm in C#. The problem is that my forms are big so they do not come fully on the screen i.e. they are scrollable. Now when I print the form, I do get the full form. I also used the scrollable but its no use.
The code is:

 if (this.ActiveMdiChild == null)
            printForm1.Form = this.ActiveMdiChild;
            printForm1.PrintAction = System.Drawing.Printing.PrintAction.PrintToPrinter;
            printForm1.Print(this, PrintForm.PrintOption.Scrollable);

Can someone help me and tell me how to get the full form along with the data. Please don't tell to capture the screenshot as the form is scrollable.

Thanks in advance.

GridView Parent Child View with JQuery Effects

I was just checked how to add some more cool effects to the GridView control using JQuery. In this post I will display parent-child data in the GridView control with some help of the wonderful JQuery library.

Let's first populate the GridView control.

GridView control to show master-child or master-slave data, written in c#, asp.net

I previously made a master slave datagrid using Visual Studio 2003 .Net (original article) that would allow users to show data to clients using collapse and expand features. These features however did not carry over to gridview for many users. This tutorial will explaing how to create a collapsable/expandable gridview in frameworks 2.0 and higher

JQuery Validate plugin to validate a ASP.NET Form

The first time I used the JQuery Validate plugin, it did not work at all, see JQuery Validate odd behaviour with the ASP.NET Script Manager for reason, but perseverance and stubbornness prevailed and I finally created my first JQuery validated ASP.NET Forms contact form.

How to use getElementById to get the elements in a form

There are many ways of accessing form elements, of which the easiest is by using the cross-browser W3C DOM document.getElementById method. Before we learn more about this method, it would be useful to know something about the Document Object Model (DOM), the concept of HTML nodes or elements, and the concept of containers.

Each time you load an HTML page, the web browser generates an internal representation of the page in the form of an inverted tree structure. Let us look at a simple form. We will use this form later to demonstrate the use of the getElementById method.

Validate form input - Japanese


 I've searched for several hours and haven't come up with a reference - or even many discussions - of how to go about validating Japanese names, addresses, etc. When I lived in Japan websites, atm's etc. required such info to be entered with the roman alphabet but I've seen some websites that are allowing Kanji/Hiragana/Katakana. I haven't tested many of them for validation but one that I did test (after looking at the page source and discovering no client-side validation) allowed me to put this in the name field: J*=123*go^ Neat!

Any pointers/references? Thanks
