Composite control: How to bubble a textbox's TextChanged event?


I've created a composite control that contains several controls, including a textbox. I'm trying to expose the TextChanged event of the textbox as an event on the composite control. I understand that events can be bubbled up the control hierarchy and handled at a higher level, which I've attempted to do, but I can't get the bubbled event to fire. When I drop the control on an aspx I can see the TextChanged event, I can subscribe to the event, but nothing ever happens. Any suggestions? Here is what I think is the relevant code:

// My event
private static readonly object EventTextChanged = new object();

//Handle the bubbled event
EventHandler textChangedHandler = (EventHandler)Events[EventTextChanged];

protected override bool OnBubbleEvent(object source, EventArgs e) 
    bool handled = false;

Need help with validating an alphanumeric string within a textbox control.

Hi everyone,I am developing a simple WinForms app for a presentation next week and need to validate that a particular string in a particular textbox is alphanumeric.  I have included the code from the button click event handler below: // Alphanumeric private void btnValidate4_Click(object sender, EventArgs e) { try { if (txtAlphanumeric.Text == "") MessageBox.Show("Please enter an alphanumeric string before clicking the 'Validate' button.", "Whoa there, pardner!!", MessageBoxButtons.OK, MessageBoxIcon.Information); else { Regex rgxAlphanumeric = new Regex("^[a-zA-Z0-9]*$"); Match alphaNumericMatch = rgxAlphanumeric.Match(txtAlphanumeric.Text); if (!alphaNumericMatch.Success) MessageBox.Show("The string supplied does NOT match the specified pattern.", "Error!", MessageBoxButtons.OK, MessageBoxIcon.Error); else { MessageBox.Show("The supplied string matches the specified pattern.", "Success!", MessageBoxButtons.OK, MessageBoxIcon.Exclamation);

Hide HoverMenuExtender when cursor is in an associated TextBox

Hi.I use HoverMenuExtenders on TextBoxes to display some info in certain cases (typically; "you did something wrong here" - messages). Thing is, I want the HoverMenuExtender to disappear when the cursor is in its associated TextBox (and the mouse is outside its borders). Right now the HoverMenuExtender is still visible when the user have placed the cursor in a TextBox to write even though the mouse pointer is outside the TextBox.Is this possible? Thanks for any input! 

Wizard Control textbox data is lost

I'm using a wizard contol with several textbox fields. I have two textbox fields disabled (textbox19 and textbox20)because I don't want the user to change the values that are calculated from the other textboxes (see javascript below). I do this with javascript on the clientside. My problem occurs when the user is in STEP2 and goes back to STEP1 the values in the disabled fields are gone. Is there a way to fix this? I would also like to perform a validation on textbox20 but I haven't been able to do that with the textbox disabled. How can I do validations on a field that is disabled? I've tried enabling the fields and using readonly = true but that doesn't work either. Any suggestions? // Client Side script to do calculations <script type="text/javascript">       function calculateSubTotal() {      var txt6 = document.getElementById('<%= TextBox6.ClientID %>');     var txt12 = document.getElementById('<%= TextBox12.ClientID %>');     var txt18 = document.getElementById('<%= TextBox18.ClientID %>');     var txt14 = document.getElementById('<%= TextBox14.ClientID %>');     var txtSubTotal = document.getElementById('<%= TextBox19.Cl

Is there a method that returns the control's type, such as "TextBox", "TextBlock", "Canvas", etc.,

Hello, I have a method that is passed in a FrameworkElement Ctrl.  When I use Ctrl.GetType().ToString() I get "System.Window.Controls.TextBox" or another string if a different type of control is passed in.  All I am interested in is the text after the last dot/period.  In my searching I thought I came across something that just returned the portion I'm looking for, but now can't find it. Is there a method that returns the control's type, such as "TextBox", "TextBlock", "Canvas", etc., without its parents? Regards, Robert

How do I get the ordinal position of a control without knowing, and more importantly, not needing to

Hello, How do I get the ordinal position of a control without knowing, and more importantly, not needing to know it's parent type? For example, this XMAL: <Parent of unknown type>      <Control Name="Control_1" />      <Control Name="Control_2" />      <Control Name="Control_3" />      <Control Name="Control_4" /> </Parent of unknown type> How do I get "Control_3"s ordinal position within its parent control? I know that I can do this:     UIElement p = (UIElement)Control_3.Parent; or even:     FrameworkElement p = (FrameworkElement)Control_3.Parent; but neither of those allow:     int i = p.Children.IndexOf(Control_3); nor     int i = p.Items.IndexOf(Control_3); If the parent is a StackPanel, I can do:     StackPanel p = (StackPanel)Control_3.Parent; and then I can do:     int i = p.Children.IndexOf(Control_3); I really do not want to have to cast the parent to a specific type, that would be a pain since there several types that could have children or items.

Dynamic Textbox List Control - problems refreshing


Ive been stuck on this one for a month:

So I have a custom control that has a list of textboxes, and a button that will dynamically add a new textbox to the list.

 So I have an addTextbox() function, that will do something like

TextbBox t = new TextBox()

 then I add it to the page.  So adding a new textbox works fine, but I have values that I want to put into each textbox and upon each page load, the values get replaced.  What I need to do is get the textboxes from the viewstate so I can use their values for other textboxes, but since they are created anonymously, im not sure how I can do that.  I tried to get the unique name and put all of them into an arraylist, then upon the next page load, load the names from the list, but the unique name isnt unique.  Thanks
