Form page considerations (Printing)

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 14, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Windows Application

I'm creating a form to plot musical notes and tabs for the guitar. I'm to the point now where I have most of my code to accomplish what I what it to do. Now I'm adding a print option. Each Time I add a function I trend to have to redo some of the older parts of my form witch I assume I will here as well. What I have is two Shape Containers that I click on to create my notes and now I would like to print my project. How Big should I make my Shape Containers to easily print them to a 8.5x11 page. And can any of you point me to some tutorials or good examples or the print function of VB. It usually takes all the example I find on my own and one of your suggestions to finally get what I'm looking for.


Maybe add in some tips on how to print only the Shape Containers as well Right Now I Do a PrintForm(Print PreVeiw) and see all my buttons as well

Filter web parts in new form page of a list



I've created 2 custom lists. The 2nd list has a lookup column from the 1st list. In the new form page for this 2nd list, I've added the 1st list as a web part. Now, I want to connect the 2 web parts, but it's not available. Basically, what I wanted is that when I select an item on the lookup column, the webpart containing 1st list would show that item on the same page.

I think I'll need to use Sharepoint Designer to implement something like this, but just wanted to check if anyone has done something like this using browser only.

making page work after DB update in Form View

I could really use some help with this issue. I have a DropDown that allows the selection of a Category Code. The selection populates a Gridview with details of records matching the Category Code. I have only enabled the Select option on the Gridview, which when clicked populates a Formview in Edit Mode with the full record information. When editing is complete and the Update link is clicked, I can not get the page to properly reload/postback. When another Category Code is selected from the Drop Down the Gridview does not report a list of records.   Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks,

Custom Edit form - close modal dialog and navigate to page

Hi, I created one custom edit form for my document library, replaced default save and cancel buttons with input buttons and added the form action to them. Then I set my page as default edit form. When I click edit button, my custom form opens in modal pop up. When I try to save the item by clicking new save button, item gets saved but pop remains as it is. Now, I want the modal pop up to get closed and navigate to page other than the parent page with some parameters after I click save button. How can I achieve this? Thanks!!

CSS Page Ignored When Printing

This is the first time I have tried using a css page for printing and so far, I am having no success. It appears that the css page is being completely ignored.I am trying to print an asp.net control (datalist or panel - I have tried both). I can get the control to print just fine, but with no css formatting. If I use inline css in the control, it works, but I would rather use a style sheet for this.Any help here would be greatly appreciated.I have two style sheets:<link href="../styles/Styles.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="screen" />    <link href="../styles/Print.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="print" />I have a master page, a content page and a print page. The control is in the content page and is then printed from the print page:masterpage.mastercontentpage.aspxprint.aspxI have tried attaching the stylesheets in all of the pages (master, content and print) but still the print page ignores the css.What am I doing wrong here?Thanks in advance

Form based authentication Sharepoint 2007 gets redirected to login page

Hi We have sharepoint 2007 site deployed on Windows server 2008, IIS 7.0.  We extended the web application to enable forms based authentication referring to link http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb975136(office.12).aspx#MOSS2007FBAPart1_Intro, we selected Kerberos instead of NTLM, behavior is like, when user tries to login into the site using OOB login.aspx, user again gets redirected to the login page. We tried to extend the web application again but this time we selected NTLM, but this time farm account (also is application pool identity) is not able login and exhibits same behavior as above, but for other users we are able to login. Has anyone come across this behavior? can anyone please guide me in correct the behavior? Regards, RK  Radhakrishna

Form opening in infopath client despite Content Type settings "Display as a Web Page"

Hi all,   I have a strange behavior with my forms. The infopath template is defined as Content Type for my Form library, in the advanced settings I have checked "Display as a Web page" for the "Opening browser-enabled documents" setting. Despite that when the client is availble on the computer which is browsing the Form Library, I'm asked to "Open", "Save" or "Cancel" instead of opening the form in the browser.   Any idea why this is happening ?

create a form to create an ascx page and code behind for it

Is is possible to build a form, accept parameters and from THAT construct a new .ascx page AND the code behind for that page? What I'm proposing is having some code snippets that just need parameters added and can then be used to create a web user control that can be added to existing pages. This .ascx file would be a real file after creation, not dynamic every time.I don't know if I'm describing it very well, maybe someone could point me in the right direction.
