Expanders expanded height issue

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 14, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WPF

If you have something like

and that items control has an observable collection of items where the user can add or remove them at any time then it demonstrates a frustration I have.

Say I have that expander open and the user adds 10 items to that items control.  The expander's height grows to accomodate as I want.  However if I remove 8 of them, the expander stays at the large height.  Even if I collapse the expander and open it again it always opens up to the taller size once it has grown that tall.  Is there a simple way to change that or will I have to extend the expander?

thanks for any answers

IE ModalPopupExtender drag issue with 100% page height.


Hi All

Hopefully I'm not repeating other peoples posts, but I've been looking all morning for a solution to this problem.

The issue:

Every modal popup in my site can be moved to the top, bottom and left without issue, but as soon as the popup touches the right edge of the browser window it jumps back to the middle. Also if you keep dragging the mouse after the popup has jumped back, the semi-transparent "lock out" looses it's transparency and you can no longer see the page behind the popup.


After playing around I found that removing the style="height:100%;" from the html element or removing the doctype declaration, I can now drag the popup to the right without issue. However, applying either of these changes messes up the rest of the sites layout.


I noticed that if the modal popup contains a textbox with an auto AutoCompleteExtender attached to it the issue was more pronounced. When dragging the popup to the right it jumps back before it gets to the right edge.

Example page (without AutoCompleteExtender):

<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeBehind="Default.aspx.cs"
    Inherits="ModalPopupTest._Default" %>
<%@ Register Assembly="AjaxControlToolkit" Namespace

IsapiModule Error 500 Issue


I am about exhausted trying to figure out this error:

HTTP Error 500.0 - Internal Server Error

Description: The page cannot be displayed because an internal server error has occurred.

Error Code: 0x8007007b

Notification: ExecuteRequestHandler

Module: IsapiModule

Requested URL: http://localhost:80/ReportServer

Physical Path: c:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.2\Reporting Services\ReportServer

When I enable Failed Request Tracing Rules and view the log output I am supposing that the actual problem is in the 2nd call where there are 2 backslashes before the actual filename in the specified path:


CALL_ISAPI_EXTENSION DllName="C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\\aspnet_isapi.dll"


MVC2 issue - Stuck. Trying to create a cms with nested partials


I am currently trying to display multiple items on a single page. I am not sure as to how to tackle this. What I have is a database table that has all the page data in. I have this run as a PagesController and this works fine. However what I would like to do is, if say the Products page is selected via the menu, I want to pull back not only the Products page html but also get all the products, and even be able to pull them through via category. I was trying to use a partial view, but I can't get it to work. The same would be for other pages, having partial views to display the other content, ie if Gallery is selected, the page html for Gallery shows and it then can push to a partial view that pulls all the gallery images from the gallery db table and so on. 

Maybe I am tackling this the wrong way. I have the pages stored in the db to allow for a CMS system I have setup. Maybe I need to use models for all the other items(Products, Gallery, Videos and such) and use the partial for the page html?

Any help would be greatly appreciated as I am confused.

User validation Issue in xlsx file



I am validating user from Login.xlsx file. It was working fine by validating email and password from that file. For testing i got new file same contents of file but added some more user names.

But when i replaced the new to old one it is working fine. The contens of both files are the same. So why this kind of error happened.


Multiple Paramatized Threading issue


I need the funcitonality to have two methods run concurrently of each other and the parent thread (aka the method that makes these two calls) to halt until BOTH are done. After the threads are done, I need to perform logic on the returns of the method, so it is essential for both of them to be complete before the parent thread continues. I have searched the internet and tried varous attacks, and I always come up with the same result, this being the parent thread continues operation after the first thread finishes, leaving the second thread running.  Can someone show me a quick example of how I can do this. I have tried checking states of the threads, halting the threads, but I always end up with the same thing. Any help would be great. Thanks.

Word Automation Issue in Windows Server 2008 Hosting



The problem I am posting here is that I was facing nearly 2 weeks around. Any body comes with this stuff please help.

Word Automation in sample ASP.NET(C#) application.

I am using Microsoft.Office.Inetrop.Word Assembly for automation. Here I am reading a XXX.dot template file and fill the contents with dynamic data.

When i am executing my code in localhost:someportnumber the automation is working fine and I could get expected result and when I am hosting in my inetmgr(Windows XP is my OS) it is also working fine.

But the problem is that when I am hosting in my production server(Windows Server 2008 Standard Edition) I am not able to perform automation and results in the following error.

Data: System.Collections.ListDictionaryInternal
Message: Word has encountered a problem.
Source: Microsoft Word

The code gets failed in the following line:

ApplicationClass wordApp = new Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.ApplicationClass();

Document wordDoc = wordApp.Documents.Add(ref oTemplate, ref oFalse, ref oMissing, ref oMissing); // Error in this line

I cannot able to proceed further. Can anybody please help me in solving this issue?

Thank you.

If Statement Issue



This is very strange to me. I have spent 2hrs looking into this inside out , but dont seem to get it

I have an if statement that inserts data into the database. But i check to make sure the name is not entered twice. Now when the name is already in the db, then it should insert else put out a message saying its already in the db

My code works fine except that  when its not in the db, its inserts but still puts out the message that says "Name is already in use" Not sure if am not seeing something. But thought i did bring it to the forum. Here is my code...Pretty simple

Protected Sub btnAdd_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnAdd.Click

        Dim objConnection As SqlConnection
        Dim objCommand As SqlCommand
        Dim strSQLQuery1 As String


        ' If there's nothing to Add for then don't search
        ' o/w build our SQL Query and execute it.
        If String.IsNullOrEmpty(txtAdd.Text) Or Leadbank.SelectedValue = "000" Then

Datalist with embedded Grid or List...Sub Totals issue with iteration


Let me see if one of you can assist with this one...


i have a similar situation, but mine does not use the selected item (item Command). Here is what the form is to do:


1. this is for an educational environment, so we use SID- NOT SSN's, but i use the SID as a filter in the subset as the grouping unique id.

2. I'm trying to inject a sub total row at the last line item of each SID (if more than one item in the report for that SID).

3. I'm looping thru the items in the Datalist Item Command with a for each (item i in Datalist2.Items).

How to solve concurrent site issue


Hi All,

I have developed a ASP.NET2.0 web site with SQL 2000 backend and number users to site is approx. 5-10.

I have developed one Administration page which controls user roles to access this site; onclick of Update button in admin page the role gets updated into the system. I have written simple query in the code to update the user roles into database; Ajax implemented in admin page;

Issue: If 2-3 users tries to update the admin roles; latest update reflected in the database and same displayed in the admin page;

I am looking for a solution to solve this problem by application code change since i dont have flexible to change the database end; if one users update the system, it should not allow other users to perform any operation; please let me know if any standard approach can be implemented with minor code change.

Thanks in Advance,
