Toolstrip border color in high contrast...

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 20, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Windows Application


I am working in .Net 2010 framework 2.0.

I want to detect the border of toolstrip in EXPLORER in high contrast theme. I am using ProfessionalColors.ToolStripBorder. But this variable is White in high contrast White theme and black in High contrast Black theme and hence border is not visible. I saw different border color as (128,128,128) in explorer. Can anyone tell me how programatically detect the border color of toolstrip in high contrast.


Thanks in advance for any reply.

how do I change BORDER COLOR for a TEXTBOX (and any other winform control) in a windforms app in VB

Does anyone have the VB code to change  border colors for winform controls such as a textbox?

Setting textbox background-color changes the default border



I've got a textbox that I'm temporarily applying a class to to give it white text on a white background.  For some reason when I apply that class, the border style changes from the default single, gray, flat border to an inset, 2px, gray border. I messed around with different combinations of styles and colors and it seems as though setting any background-color on the textbox causes the border to change. Where does the default border style come from and why is it changing?

ASP.NET Best Practices for High Performance Applications

This article lists the techniques that you can use to maximize the performance of your ASP.NET applications. It provides common issues, design guidelines, and coding tips to build optimal and robust solutions.

High-Performance .NET Application Development & Architecture

It has always been a goal of project architects to plan an effective strategy from the ground up in regards to an new application. All relevant factors are taken into consideration with respect to the application, from its design and layout to a functional website infrastructure. Pre-.NET strategies and design guidelines still effective now were developed with Microsoft's DNA (Distributed interNet Application) platform. This model successfully served the purpose of architecting N(any number of)-Tier (levels) applications. In its basic sense, as in most robust, distributed applications, you'll architect 3 main layers or Tiers: presentation, business rules and data access.

High Performance ASP.NET - Speeding Up ASP.NET Pages

have been writing a series of blog posts, which I have named High Performance ASP.NET Websites Made Easy! There is no rhyme or reason to the order of these posts and certainly can be read in any order:

10 Tips for Writing High-Performance Web Applications

Writing a Web application with ASP.NET is unbelievably easy. So easy, many developers don't take the time to structure their applications for great performance. In this article, I'm going to present 10 tips for writing high-performance Web apps. I'm not limiting my comments to ASP.NET applications because they are just one subset of Web applications. This article won't be the definitive guide for performance-tuning Web applications-an entire book could easily be devoted to that. Instead, think of this as a good place to start.

Download and Share Visual Studio Color Schemes

The good news is that Visual Studio allows you to completely customize the editor background and text colors to whatever you want - allowing you to tweak them to create the experience that is "just right" for your eyes and personality. You can then optionally export/import your color scheme preferences to an XML file via the Tools->Import and Export Settings menu command.

Ajax Tab: Each TabPanel with different Color



I have situation like, Each tab panel should display with different colors based on the status. Example:

Completed tabs should display in "Green"

Inprogress status tabs should display in "Red"

Not eligible status tabs should display in "Gray".

Ajax Tab look and feel is very good. So, thought of using the Ajax Tab for my above requirement. I tried to change it. But I am not able to change the color of the each tab.  

Is it possible to change the color of each tab in Ajax Tab control? Pleas help me.

If not possible, please suggest any other tab controls to achieve above my requirement.

Note:I already tried with IE tab controls, since it provides me that flexibility to change the color of the each tab. But, It is crashing my browswer. I am not sure about the reason.

I tried Jquery option, since I need to change the tab status dynamically based on the selection made in that same page, I am not able to achieve this one in the JQuery.

 Dim Brush As New SolidBrush(col)

gr.DrawString(strWatermarkText, wmFont, New SolidBrush(Color.FromArgb(8, 0, 0, 0)), x, y)


May someone share me how to make the color input from form to become alpha color? thanx in advanced. hope to hear from you all soon 


Easy image processing(grayscale, sepia, negative, resize, brightness, contrast and opacity)

Howdie y'all,

I see a lot of questions in this forum about resizing images. Recently I created a code sample(with downloadable webapp), right here.

The class (downloaded or created) allows for very fast and easy processing of your images. And a lot of problems over here can be solved by simply using that class. I thought it might help to mention the code sample in this forum as well.
