Silverlight controls disabled

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 20, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net


  I just installed sliverlight 3 tools on my machine. I see the silverlight xaml controls faded or disabled in the visual studio 2008 toolbox. I wonder why? The same thing is happening  on my other machine that has Visual studio 2010 installed with silverlight4 tools on it.

Anybody has some helpful hints on this?

Textbox WebControl Enabled/Disabled problem: Disabled controls looks great in Firefox but in IE they


Hi everyone,

I don't know if you face the same problem when your page logic has to set the enabled textbox's property to FALSE.  If i use FireFox to browse the page, my disbled controls are show with a dark-silver background color (perfect for me), but when i browse with IE, disabled or enabled textboxes are show the same way (no color differences).

Is there a way to manage controls appearance depending on the Enabled property?

I appreciate your support.


CSS style for disabled controls



I don't know much about CSS but using an existing stylesheet available in the project.

I want to change the style of the controls which are disabled with CSS. These controls will be disabled based on the requirement, so the style needs to be applied only when it disables and should look normal when its enabled. I am using IE 6 with windows xp. I need to use the style in c# code.

Please let me know how can I do this.

Thanks in advance.

Silverlight User Controls and n-tier architecture.


Hi. I'd like to add a datagrid in silverlight that it's data source is a cmsPage. Now the existing system is a projectLess website that uses the 3 tier architecture to retrive cmsPages (ASP.Net 4.0). How can I connect the datagrid user control in the silverlight application to the Buisness logic layer? The other alternative I see is sending to the usercontrol a dataset - how do I accomplish that?


Thanks in advance,

Binding WPF Controls to an Entity Data Model

Custom Controls in C# .NET

Embedding user controls in a Windows form is just like adding a simple button or text box that are already provided with .NET. These basic controls were written essentially like you code your own controls. Typically the controls you design are to be used in multiple forms or to modularize your code. These reasons help reduce the amount of code you have to type as well as make it easier for you to change your implementation. There should almost never be any reason to duplicate code because it leaves a lot of room for bugs. So, implementing functionality specific to your control in the control's source code is a good idea. This reduces code duplication as well as modularize your code, which is a good programming guideline.

Accessing the different controls inside a GridView control

how we can access a particular control which resides inside a GridView control. In this article I will show you how you can access different controls inside a GridView control. We will see how we can access a TextBox control, a DropDownList control and a ListBox control. If you are working with ASP.NET 1.X then you might want to check out my article Accessing Different Controls Inside a DataGrid.

Using ASP.NET 3.5's ListView and DataPager Controls: Displaying Data with the ListView

Prior to ASP.NET 3.5, developers who needed to display a set of records could choose between the GridView, DataList, and Repeater controls. The GridView provides rich data features, but has a very boxy layout; the DataList and Repeater allow for a more flexible layout, but lack the "point and click" data features found in the GridView, DetailsView, and FormView controls. The ListView bridges the gap between layout flexibility and built-in data features.

This article, the first in a series of articles on the ListView and DataPager controls, looks at the ListView's many available templates and illustrates how to display data. Read on to learn more!

Building a 3-Tier App with Silverlight 3, .NET RIA Services, and Azure Table Storage

Silverlight 3, .NET RIA Services, and Windows Azure Services Platform makes a 3-tier Cloud application easier to build: Silverlight 3 as presentation tier, .NET RIA services as the business logic and data access tier, and Windows Azure Table as the data storage tier.
