TextBox MaxLength Property not enforced for Tablet PC Input Panel using Writing Pad

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 11, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WPF

I have developed a sizeable Wpf application to target the XP Tablet PC 2005, running on a UMPC. However I have hit a serious issue with the TextBox MaxLength property when using the Tablet Input panel to input hand writing recognition to my application.


When using keyboard or Input Panel text input, the MaxLength property is enforced as you might expect. However if the writing pad is used and the MaxLength is exceeded an Exception of type 'System.ExecutionEngineException' is thrown, and the application terminates.


Code Snippet

<TextBox Name="textBox1" MaxLength="25" />



I have built a simple test application to demonstrate that the problem is not isolated to my particular application.


I would be grateful i

Changing a textbox's readonly property right before update on a gridview


I have a gridview with a date field. I don't want the user to be able to type in their own date and mess up the format so I made the property readonly. That date is then set by a point and click interface. This is all working fine but when the user clicks update this field doesn't update because it's readonly. If i turn readonly off it works so is there a way to turn off the readonly property right before submit?

Textbox Text Property

I am new to VB and I have read that if I don't explicity cast variable types it will eat up performance. I have been casting certain objects, such as values from data readers, but I was wondering if the object has a property that says it is a string, like the textbox "Text" property, if I need to still cast that as a string.   Right now my code says "txtSearch.Text" but should I be using "txtSearch.Text.ToString()"?   Thanks in advance for the help!

Refinement Panel Customization with Managed Property

Hi, I've customized the refinement panel with a Managed Property I've created myself. The refinement panel takes into account this managed property and disply it well. However, if this Managed Property is multi-valued, then each entry in the refinement panel does not split the multi valued column into different values and display a single value like : Enter Choice #1;Enter Choice #2;Enter Choice #3; and of course in that case the refinement does not work. I did the same thing in MOSS 2007 with the codeplex faceted search web part release 2.5 and it was working fine. Upgrading to release 3.0 however seems to produce the same issue as in SharePoint 2010. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Hervé

How do you get a textbox/input or a javascript to postback?


I am using a Yahoo UI dual slider.  The dual slider changes values based on what you slide.  It uses javascript and sends this value back to a Input type="text" textbox. 

I want to be able to do a automatic postback and call the server function "protected void zoom(object sender, EventArgs e)"  each time the slider value changes.

So what I did was:

<asp:TextBox type="text" id="demo_from"  runat="server"
OnTextChanged="Zoom" AutoPostBack="true">

But the problem is, it WILL not fire the server-side event unless I manually click the textbox and press "ENTER".  Then the event will fire (during debug).

So how can I get the event to auto-fire each time the slider value changes?

textbox clears after a few secs in update panel


Strange problem, not sure why it's happening.  Basically I have inside an UpdatePanel a dropdownlist, a textbox, and a regex validator.  page loads, ddl is bound and then based on the value in the ddl, a different regex is applied to the textbox.  DDL could have search by "date" (with date regex), "last name" (with az regex), or "zip code" (with a zip regex).  This way one search box can be used with 3 different regexes.  Select zip code in the ddl, the OnSelectedIndexChanged is fired and the new regex is applied to the textbox.  Simple.

The problem is, though, is that the page loads, I select Zip Code in the DDL, type in a zip code and then tab out NOT clicking the search button, and as soon as I do the regex validator fires with the red *.  I wait about 2-3 seconds and it appears there's a postback that's fired somewhere because the textbox gets cleared out.  Here's the update panel.

		<asp:UpdatePanel runat="server" ID="updpnl">
			  <td>Search by:</td>
			    <asp:DropDownList ID="ctrlSearchByField" runat="server" AutoPostBack="true" DataValueField="Key

How can you check the user is owned of the web site that is input in textbox?


Hi Experts.

In the most web sites when you want to register in any web sites, you must provide your information such as First name, last name, email and etc. Then the web site create a confirm link and send it to your mail. If you input your mail correctly, you can check it in your inbox of your mail and click on it to your registration is completed.

In this scenario, the users should input their mails correctly because the web sites will send the confirm link to it. In other words the mail that the users input must be owned of user else if they can't click on the confirm link.

Suppose you want the users input their web sites instead of their emails address in your web site, Now How can you check the user is owned of the web site that is input in the textbox?

I hope you understand my question else if tell me to describe it more.
