WPF Fullscreen Mode without Taskbar

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

Hi Everyone,

I am working on a fullscreen project in WPF.  In Silverlight fullscreen mode is simple. But I am having troubles getting completely fullscreen mode in a WPF Application.  I tried doing Windows.WindowState, WindowStyle and such... But I still have the taskbar.

Anyway to get the screen into a complete fullscreen mode? 

Thanks for any help :)

Any suggestions?

WPF window in fullscreen exclusive mode


I'm told to do an application that runs in fullscreen and doesn't allow the tray notifications to be shown at all. I can easily accomplish this by using Direct3D (via XNA or SlimDX) and creating an exclusive fullscreen window, but I'd rather prefer to use WPF, as I'm not going to do a game but an app. At this point I've a fullscreen window that hides both Win32 and Messenger notifications, but does not hide notifications from applications like AVG or Google Talk.

Given that the Win32 API does not offer by itself the concept of exclusive fullscreen (http://blogs.msdn.com/b/oldnewthing/archive/2005/06/07/426294.aspx), I wonder if there is a (hacky) way for tweaking WPF's CreateDevice parameters in order to initialize D3D9 in exclusive fullscreen mode?

Appart from that, the only thing I can do is to periodically monitor the current front window and push it each time it's partially obscured, but of course this will be the last resort.

Please help me, i have a properly working codes that is capable of the following:

1. Printing of Reports from ReportViewer without using the build-in print ICON in the actual ReportViewer. to view the working for the printing alone please click here.

SSRS 2005 "Mixed" Authentication Mode


I have a web application where users can authenticate using either SiteMinder or Windows domain accounts.  This is actually configured as two separate virtual directories within IIS 6.  Both applications need to use the same instance of SSRS.  Is it possible to configure the SSRS web application so that if a user is authenticated by SiteMinder it impersonates a Windows account, but if they are already Windows-authenticated that account is used instead?

Setting accessibility mode for multiple web applications


We have a SharePoint farm consisting of 5 web applications. These are tied together through branding and a custom sitemapprovider which present the farm as a single environment to end users. Our visually disabled users however have to enable the accessibility mode for each web application. Which is a nuisance, ideally they would only have to enable once for the complete farm. Does anybody have a solution for this problem.

Reg: Turn on more accessible mode & Skip to main content link message on Infopath2007 browser form



I have a infopath 2007 browser enabled form with c# code behind . The Infopath form is embeded\hosted in to a custom layouts page (.aspx) on MOSS 2007. The issue is when users use keyboard to fill the form, they often use <TAB> & <Enter> keys. So when they are using the tabbing at one location in the form, I have a "Contact selector" field, I enter a name & then hit <TAB> key the focus now comes to "name cheker" I then hit <Enter> key, I hit <TAB> again, the focus now comes to a button named "Accept", I hit <Enter> key & a filed below is populated with the values from user profile service. Now when I hit <TAB> I expect the focus should now come to that automatically populated field below the "Contact selctor". Because Infopath assings the tab order by default form top to bottom & left to right and I havent changed that default tab order.   

But, the focus moves to top of the webpage with a clickable link to "Turn on more accessible mode" I hit tab one more time & the link on top changes to "Skip to main content". This bheaviour does not seem to be happning in other form controls when they hit <Tab>, <Enter>. There are couple of areas on the infopath form where I have such a controls (layed ou

Cannot export from a Report in SharePoint integrated mode in a server hardend environment


We have installed Reporting Services 2008 integrated with MOSS with SQL Server 2008 on a 64 bit platform.

The environment has worked fine in test (but the servers are not hardend).

With the production environment, any attempt to export from a report into another format (eg excel, tiff etc) results in an unexpected error within SharePoint requiring closing the browser and reopening.

There are no details behind the error. We can also find no traces of the error within any of the logs (SharePoint, Reporting Services, Windows event log etc)

When the report is opened directly from Reporting Services (ie http://servername:8080/reportserver) the report exports fine. Similarly, if the report is opened directly from Report Builder 2, or through opening Report Builder 2 from SharePoint there is no issue. This issue only happens when the report is invoked directly through SharePoint.


We can only assume that this issue has something to do with server hardening/UAC as we have

Moved from WinXP to Win7 - don't see choice to open file in read only or edit mode


I just recently moved from Win XP Pro SP3 to Win 7 32-bit Pro. I am logging into domain X normally. Our Sharepoint 2007 server authenticates only on domain Y. So I start Internet Explorer with "run as different user" and provide my domain Y credentials. All fine. 

In win XP, after I did this, when I click on an Excel file on Sharepoint, I would get a dialog asking if I wanted to check out and edit or open as read only. 

In win7, I don't get that choice. The file simply opens, and I get a bar at the top which allows me to check out the file if I wanted to. 

How can I restore the functionality I used to have, with the dialog for checking out the file before opening it?

Putting a text box in typeover mode.


  I am using VB ASP.NET in Visual Studio 2008.  I would like to put some textboxes in typeover mode so that the user will not have to erase what is there before typing in the new text.

  Is there a way to do this?  If so, please direct me to the code examples or give me the code that can do this.

  Thank you for your time.

SPDataSource returning 0 results when used in CrossList Mode



I'm writing a web part in C# to query several document libraries, using a SPDataSource with the results going to a SPGridView.

I got the query to work just fine with a single document library, but when I switched the SPDataSource to CrossList mode (and added the "Web" and "Lists" tags to the query), I end up with no results. I've done a lot of digging around on the web for examples of how to do this correctly, but always end up with the same result, no hits.

These are the only properties I'm setting on the data source:


ds.DataSourceMode = SPDataSourceMode.CrossList;

ds.UseInternalName = true;

ds.SelectCommand = queryString;

The query string looks like this (I added the formatting for readability... the actual query string is all a single line):

<Webs Scope='SiteCollection'></Webs

WPF+ VS2010: Design mode error "The URI prefix is not recognized"?

our application uses VS2008 and WPF. To apply the styles in the design mode, we have used the "BlendMergedDictionary" class (see the following link) http://stackoverflow.com/questions/995101/how-do-i-get-wysiwyg-design-in-blend-vs-without-merged-resourcedictionary-in-ever It works very well in VS2008 IDE. Now we plan to move our application to VS2010. In VS2010 Design mode (click on ~.xaml design), we get error message:  "The URI prefix is not recognized."    at System.Net.WebRequest.Create(Uri requestUri, Boolean userUriBase)    at System.Net.WebRequest.Create(Uri requestUri)    at MS.Internal.WpfWebRequestHelper.CreateRequest(Uri uri)    at System.Windows.ResourceDictionary.set_Source(Uri value) the styles does not apply at the design time.
