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

Hi,

How do I customize a C# control..say I want rounded corners for all my text boxes..

In Web apps I know you can add it and use the class property of a asp textbox control. How do I achieve it in Windows forms?

 

Thanks.

Cutting Edge: A New Grid Control in Windows Forms

  

Grid controls are essential in many of today's apps. Until now, though, most developers using Visual Basic® have had to buy third-party components to get an effective, easy to use grid component. The Windows® Forms DataGrid turned out to lack too many features for the average developer.

Web-Aware Apps: Build Hyperlinks into Your Client App with the Windows Forms LinkLabel Control

  

LinkLabels are Windows Forms controls that enable a user to hyperlink to a URL that points to either the Web or the local directory system. While the SDK documentation discusses the control, it does not demonstrate how linking is accomplished, nor does it outline the power and flexibility the control provides. This article fills those gaps, showing how to link using the LinkLabel control. It also shows the flexibility of this control for the programmer using the .NET Framework. In addition, the author covers the large number of properties that allow you to customize your controls and accurately place them. Their built-in behaviors are also discussed, along with their use in both Visual Basic .NET and C#.

Setting trust level for windows.system.forms.browser control

  

Hi All,

I am using a browser control in my WPF application. The users of this application will be using this control for viewing content that could contain malicious scripts. I want to set the Trust Level so that none of the scripts should be executed. I have added the Attribute to the method that creates the Browser control. I dont think its working though. Any thoughts on how this can be done?

Dynamically Centering a Windows Forms Label Control

  
I'm working on an athletic workout journal application that will include an Interval / Countdown Timer. I plan to build several versions of this application in different technologies (WPF, Web, Phone) but I'm building the first version in Windows Forms. I want the user to be able to dynamically set the size of the "Stopwatch" display font, then resize the form and have the text re-center in the form, taking into consideration the new font size. Stuff like this is easy in HTML, but not so much in Windows Forms. Though I'm still in the early stages I thought I'd share the bit of math that I've come up with and invite any suggestions you might have.

Is Dispatcher.BeginInvoke really NOT thread safe, while the old System.Windows.Forms.Control.BeginIn

  

Hello.

 

System.Windows.Forms.Control.BeginInvoke is documented as thread safe (in fact, BeginInvoke , EndInvoke , Invoke , InvokeRequired , and CreateGraphics are).

Great!

 

But in WPF, Dispatcher.BeginInvoke is not documented as thread safe. Which would appear to me as a regression (and not really convenient, to be honest).

Was it only forgotten in MSDN documentation, or should I really use external locking to prevent the dispatcher to get lost in its messages and priorities?

 

 

Thanks. ;)


Application Architecture in Windows Forms 2.0

  
Applications have special support in Windows Forms. For starters, you can manage and tailor your application's lifetime, and, when the work flow is disrupted by an unhandled exception, you can choose from several methods of response. Then, there are several application models that you can employ, including Single Document Interface (SDI) and Multiple Document Interface (MDI) applications, each of which can support either multiple-instance or single-instance mode, the former the VS05 default and the latter requiring special consideration. All applications, however, can discover and use a wide variety of information about the system and environment they execute in.

Application Architecture in Windows Forms 2.0-Single-MDI Applications

  
Consider an MDI application like Microsoft Excel; files opened from the file system (by double-clicking) are all opened as separate child windows within the parent Excel window.7 For the first instance of an MDI application to open a new child window to display the file that was passed to the second instance of the application, the second instance must be able to communicate with the initial instance.

How to programmatically add controls to Windows forms at run time by using Visual C#

  
Create a Windows Forms Application
Start Visual Studio .NET or Visual Studio 2005 or a later version, and create a new Visual C# Windows Application project named WinControls. Form1 is added to the project by default.
Double-click Form1 to create and view the Form1_Load event procedure.
Add private instance variables to the Form1 class to work with common Windows controls. The Form1 class starts as follows:

How to Localize Windows Forms and Change the Language at Runtime

  
Localization is the process of customizing your application to a particular language, culture or locale. Visual Studio provides support for localizing Windows Forms with much ease. In this article, we will see how to localize windows forms and give the user the ability to change to his preferred language at runtime.
When you run a localized application, the appearance is determined by two culture values. The UICulture property is used to specify which resource files will be loaded for the form. The Culture property, on the other hand, determines how strings such as dates, numerals, and currency amounts are formatted.
Let us see the steps required to create a localized form. You can then expand this example and adopt the same approach for the rest of the forms in your project

Localizing Windows Forms

  
The Visual Studio project system provides considerable support for localizing Windows Forms applications. There are two ways to generate resource files using the Visual Studio development environment: one is to have the project system generate the resource files for localizable UI elements such as text and images on the form. The resource files are then built into satellite assemblies. The second way is to add a resource file template and then edit the template with the XML Designer. A reason for doing the latter is to make localizable strings that appear in dialog boxes and error messages. You must then write code to access these resources.

This walkthrough topic demonstrates both processes in a single Windows Application project.

You can also convert a text file to a resource file; for more information, see Resources in Text File Format and Resource File Generator (Resgen.exe).

How to position one control relative to another one even after resizing windows?

  

I used following Jquery code trying to make image close to a table. It worked fine after first load, but the position changed after window is resized. Any ideas? thanks

$(document).ready(function() {
            var pos = $("#mytable").offset();
            var width = $("#mytable").width();
            var left = pos.left + width + 20;
            var top = pos.top + 200;
            $("#ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_imgPreview").css({
                position: 'absolute',
                zIndex: 5000,
                left: left,
                top: top
            });
        });


Cloud Diagnostics: Take Control of Logging and Tracing in Windows Azure
