Changing tab control appearance

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 20, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WPF
 

Hi,

I'm trying to customize the appearance of the WPF tab control.  There are several examples I've run across on the web (1, 2) and MSDN's TabControl style and template page.  I even dumped out the Tab control's default template by using the 'Dumping the Defaults' routine described in Petzold's MSDN article and then apply that template to a tab control.   

All of the above work to customize the appearance of the tab control.  However, all suffer from some strange behaviour when the template is applied in VS WPF designer.  Here's the XAML skeleton I used for my testing:

<Window x:Class="TabControlTest.MainWindow"
    xmlns=

DataBinding not updating underlying business object when changing control property from code

  

I have a custom data form control that in code generates databindings between the selected custom business object (LLBL) and the various controls on the screen. Everything works in that I set the DataContext to the selected business object and the data appears in the GUI. If the user changes anything on screen, the data is getting updated into the business object.

However, now I have some custom logic that when the user presses a button I need to update some fields. Currently I'm setting this data directly into the controls, setting the new value into the property that is bound. However, the data is not getting pushed back into the business object.  I had this same issue building WinForm apps in that databinding only fired if the user was in the control and left it.

Does the same thing apply to WPF? How can I get ANY change on say a TextBox's Text property whether via user interaction or from C# code to push that value into the bound business object property?

 


dynamic javascript of an .ascx control inside an updatepanel not changing on client between async po

  

I have a confusing state issue. I found a way around it, but I would like to know why this is happening. First of all, I am using .NET 3.5 and that can't change right now (an easy fix may be the fixed ID capabilities of .NET 4.0).

Type csType = this.GetType();
ClientScriptManager cs = Page.ClientScript;
string jScriptBlockName = "SignUpSignInNameAvailabilityScript";
if (!cs.IsClientScriptBlockRegistered(csType, jScriptBlockName))
{   //NOTE: verified code always enters this
    StringBuilder cstext2 = new StringBuilder();
    cstext2.Append("function GetSignUpSignInNameAvailabilityMessage() { var id = '"
          + CreateUserWizardStep1.ContentTemplateContainer.FindControl("iSignUpSignInNameAvailabilityMessage").ClientID
          + "'; alert(id); return id; }");
    cs.RegisterClientScriptBlock(csType, jScriptBlockName, cstext2.ToString(), true);
}

This code is in Page_Load of an ascx. The same control is drawn on two separate postbacks of an UpdatePanel in different places of the page thus giving them different client IDs. The code works correctly on the first refresh of web browser; but after UpdatePanel

UpdatePanel Reference in control.ascx.designer.cs keeps changing

  

I have an annoying problem when I'm developing in Visual Studio 2010. I am using an UpdatePanel in my .ascx file like this:

<asp:updatepanel id="upStuff" runat="server">....</asp:updatepanel>


in my control.ascx.designer.cs, the update panel is being defined like this:

protected global::System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts.updatepanel upSettings;


this produces the error:

"The type or namespace name 'updatepanel' does not exist in the namespace 'System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts' (are you missing an assembly reference?)"


The actual namespace should be System.Web.UI.UpdatePanel. When I go directly into the designer.cs file and change it, it works. However, every time I go back into editing control.ascx and save, Visual Studio always changes it back to System.Web.UI.WebControls.Webparts.updatepanel.

I'm not sure what is causing this. Is it how I should be referencing namespaces and classes in my project? I'm using .NET 3.5. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Changing a control attribute at runtime.

  

Hi Guys,

I'm basically trying to get a div containing a loading gif to show on my page at runtime. I call it from a button click event as well as in the code flow. It was working before I used the AJAX Update Panels. I've since taken them out as they were causing issues with RegisterClientScriptBlock. By the way, does commenting out the AJAX Markup like this...

<%--           <asp:UpdatePanel ID="up_search" runat="server">
                            <ContentTemplate>--%>

...remove them from influence?
 
My div markup looks like this..
<div id="loading" style="visibility: hidden;" runat="server">
    <img id="loading_gif" alt="Loading..." class="loading" src="Images/panel_loading.gif" />
</div>

My code is initiated from the button click event.

    protected void btnSearch_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        //ChangeCursor("wait");
        //up_prcss.Update();
        //up_search.Update();

        //show the loading image

Changing Z-index order programmatically in C# with Control.SetChildIndex?

  
Hello developers.

I've recently build a Windows form app that contains 18 pictureboxes and 1 button.
I want the boxes on the bottom of the form to be on the front, so they overlap all the others.
And the boxes on the top of the form must be on the back, so they are behind all the others.

I can manually do this with 'move to front' and 'send to back' options, but I want to to this programmatically.
This is so, because I'm gonna add another picturebox that can move.
That picturebox should automaticly change it's z-index when it's Y changes.

At the moment the 17 pictureboxes have a random 'z order':
Some pictureboxes are on top, some are on the bottom, in a random way.
Now I want to set the z order correctly when I click on the button.

I've made code that sets the ChildIndex between 1 and 5 depending on the Y of the picturebox.
When the Y = 0, the ChildIndex will be 5, and when the Y = 400, the ChildIndex will be 0.
The pbBackground is also a picturebox, and this one's ChildIndex = 10.

My problem is, that my Windows form app isn't doing what it's supposed to be.

The picturebox names are pictureBox0, pictu

Changing the graphics on the home page of a SharePoint site

  
When you create a site in Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services by using the default Team Site template, the home page includes two default graphics. A Windows SharePoint Services graphic appears in the body of the page, and a picture of a house in a circle appears near the site title. You can change these graphics to customize your site. Changing the smaller graphic requires a Windows SharePoint Services compatible Web page editor

Adding Dynamic Rows in ASP.NET GridView Control with TextBoxes and with Delete functionality

  
In my previous examples, I have demonstrated on how to add dynamic rows in GridView control with TextBoxes and how to save the values into the database. Now, seems that most of the developers are asking if how to add a delete functionality with it. So in this example, I'm going to show on how to delete a certain row in the dynamic GridView with TextBoxes.

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.

In-Depth look at the GridView Control

  
In the last article we looked at few of the new controls available in Asp.net 2.0. We also talked about Grid View Control which has replaced the Asp.net 1.1 DataGrid control for good. In this article we will examine more features of the Grid View control. In this article we will see some of the common operations that can be performed using the GridView control. Apart from these operations there are many more functions that can be performed on the control and which we will see in the later articles

ASP.NET repeater control - databind with style

  
even used the inline editing features, which I at the time thought was the coolest way possible to write ASP.NET code ( I managed to write code to hide all other rows and only show the current one - the row being edited). With a nice looking EditTemplate it looked indeed very slick but it really turned into giant and hard to manage code behind files.

Creating Paging for a Repeater Control

  
A common question is "How do I implement paging within a Repeater?" Although the beauty of the Repeater control is its flexibility, you're on your own for building most functions. ASP.NET 2.0 has included some new controls that provide paging, as does the DataGrid in ASP.NET 1.1. However, this tip shows you how to roll your own paging for a simple data viewer.

Using TemplateFields in the GridView Control

  
The GridView is composed of a set of fields that indicate what properties from the DataSource are to be included in the rendered output along with how the data will be displayed. The simplest field type is the BoundField, which displays a data value as text. Other field types display the data using alternate HTML elements. The CheckBoxField, for example, renders as a checkbox whose checked state depends on the value of a specified data field; the ImageField renders an image whose image source is based upon a specified data field. Hyperlinks and buttons whose state depends on an underlying data field value can be rendered using the HyperLinkField and ButtonField field types.
