Setting property in mother-form ???

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 12, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Windows Application

I have a form, A, with a property _B and set/get defined as public.

From form A I start another form - a toolbox - where I can choose a value for the property _B in form A.

But how can I set the value I before I close my other form ?

(The set/get does NOT appear !)

Best regards KSor, Denmark

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"/>         <

How Do I Not Include: myControl.GetType.GetProperty("Text") When No Property Window Setting?

Hi All, Posted below is code I'm using to generate a list of controls that have either a "Text" or "Caption" property. However, for certain controls in the resulting list, the property setting (Text/Caption) does not appear in the "Property Window" of the IDE when that control is selected. One example of this is the Systems.Windows.Forms.PictureBox control. Is there a way I can determine this and if so - how do I exclude these control(s) from my list?     Private Sub cmdValidateControls_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles cmdValidateControls.Click         txtResults.Clear()         For Each ctrl As Object In Me.Controls             LogControl(ctrl)         Next     End Sub     Private Sub LogControl(ByVal ctrlIn As Object)         If System.Diagnostics.Debugger.IsAttached Then             If (Not ctrlIn.GetType.GetProperty("Text") Is Nothing) Or (Not ctrlIn.GetType.GetProperty("Caption") Is Nothing) Then                 txtRes

UseExplicit property in infopath with form based context

Hi everyone, I have a problem with my infopath form. The context, user of the site mustn't have acces to lists that provision infopath form field. Administrator should have acces to these lists. When i test the useExplicit property of udc file for impersonate the connection to the list i have no problem ( all my account are local account) But when i try to integrate user from FBA, infopath form services don't take care of the UseExplicit property and try connect to the list with the credential of the connected user ( who don't have access to the list since only the user that i use to impersonate the connection have read acces). Here is my UseExplicit property :  <udc:Authentication>    <udc:UseExplicit CredentialType="NTLM">      <udc:UserId>dev\svc-reader</udc:UserId>      <udc:Password>password</udc:Password>    </udc:UseExplicit>  </udc:Authentication>    09/06/2010 15:06:50.46                w3wp.exe (0x09BC)                                      0x1A08 SharePoint Foundation                General                      

Setting an attached property by a Setter element?

I have the fragment below as contents of a <Grid> element. The idea is that if the checkbox is checked the <TreeView> element should only span one instead of two columns. When I check the checkbox the background of the treeview turns red, but the treeview continues to span 2 instead of 1 column. It's a bit like the attached property Grid.ColumnSpan does not get assigned by the <Setter Property="Grid.ColumnSpan" Value="1"/> at all. What should I do in order to achieve what I want?Best regards,Henrik Dahl   <TreeView    x:Name="Blas"    ItemsSource="{Binding Path=BlasRoot.Children}" d:LayoutOverrides="Width" Margin="0,0,0,8" Grid.Column="0" Grid.ColumnSpan="2">    <TreeView.Style>       <Style>          <Style.Triggers> <DataTrigger Binding="{Binding ElementName=chkPosition, Path=IsChecked}" Value="True">    <Setter Property="Grid.ColumnSpan" Value="1"/>    <Setter Property="TreeView.Background" Value="Red"/> </DataTrigger>          </Style.Triggers>       </Style>    </TreeView.Style> </TreeView> <CheckBox HorizontalAlignment="Left" Margin="-50,0,0,0" x:Name="chkPosition" VerticalAlignment="Top" Content="

Setting a Property that causes update on a UpadatePanel on Init stage.

Hi, I have a custom control with a UpdatePanel inside. Depending of user action or page programing I call Update method of my UpdatePanel to refresh html portion to user.For example, I created a property called Title. If the Title change i call Update of my UpdatePanel.public string Title { get { return labelTitle.Text; } set { if (labelTitle.Text != value) { labelTitle.Text = value; panelUpdate.Update(); // Refresh the entire control } } }   But if the Title property is configured on aspx file, my UpdatePanel is always refreshed because my Title property is setted on Init stage of page life cycle.I need to know if this property is setted on init stage or if ViewState is restored to avoid call Update, or any tips to avoid refresh my control everytime. Thanks,Tales Aguiar.

Setting form icon from embedded resource in layout

I have no trouble embedding resources into my project into the resx file and using them for things like ImageLists. For example selecting a background image for a control, I simply click on the [...] button in the properties window for background image and a popup window allows me to select "Project resource file: Resources.resx" and lists the selectable images I've already embedded to choose from.
Yet how come when I select a Form and click [...] to select its icon it forces me to browse on my hard disk for a file instead of linking directly to the already-embedded resource? I don't want to have to keep adding copies of the same icon for every form I want to apply it to. Is there a reason for this or a way around getting this to work properly using the layout manager? I've found some pages that talk about how to code it into the source and force it to work that way but I'd like to know how to do it in the designer.

property setting in report server (2008) config file is not working as expected.



I have set the <WorkingSetMinimum> property to 2.4GB in my reportserver 2008 config file.

By defintion, <WorkingSetMinimum> setting means,

  1. Lower limit of service memory consumption; memory will not be released if the consumption is below this amount, though the service will not reserve the designated amount of memory when it starts.
  2. If service uses more than the designated amout of memory, it will release back the memory only till this declared value and not beyond that, which means it should keep 2.4GB as designated.

See this link for definition: http://books.google.com/books?id=mzY_Xo_9J-gC&pg=PA589&lpg=PA589&dq=What+is+%3Cworkingsetminimum%3E+in+report+server+configuration+file&source=bl&ots=r_xhRp8erj&sig=E_o0-Dh2SXOgMNrW3sptt5oZrYI&hl=en&ei=f5mjTNeNM5O8ccmErJMI&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=4&ved=0CCAQ6AEwAw#

ExecuteReader problem in web form: Connection-property not initialized


I changed my data source from an access-db to a sql-server, now i still have to fix some problems Undecided

When I want to load a value from a sql-database into my web form (to display a default value), I get an ExecuteReader error ("Connection-property not initialized").

I dont know where to set the connection property in my code.

Dim con As New System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection()
Dim myCommand As New System.Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand
Dim SqlCon As String = "Data Source=blablabla\SQLEXPRESS;Initial Catalog=Bill;Persist Security Info=True;User ID=xxx;Password=password"
con.ConnectionString = SqlCon
Dim reader As System.Data.SqlClient.SqlDataReader = myCommand.ExecuteReader() 

The error occurs in the last line. Do I have to set the connection property in the SqlCon string?

Button Enable Property Web Form


I'm trying to set the enable property for a button to true when a checkbox is checked with the Check Change Event using VWD Express 2010. The enable property for the button was set to false within the button tag and auto post back for both controls is set to true. The checkbox is nested within an AJAX Accordion Pain and the button is outside the update panel.  When I run the code in debug the button enabled property is being set to true but the actual button never becomes active on the form. I tried putting the button tag within the update panel start and ending tags but get an error that it is not a recognized control when I build the site.

This should be a simple process but I guess I'm missing something.  


Protected Sub AuthorizationCheckBox_CheckedChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles AuthorizationCheckBox.CheckedChanged
        If AuthorizationCheckBox.Checked = True Then
            Me.SubmitFormBtn.Enabled = True
        End If
    End Sub
