ListBox tricky to set in a DataGrid/GridView

Listboxes are very tricky to set selected items in grid - there is no real nice way to do it. It would have been great if Microsoft included a property that accepts an array or comma separated values - or anything! But they only allow each item in the list to be selected individually. The way to do this in a grid is a bit messy, but it is fairly simple to implement. When a row is created (as per the event), select the items of the listbox as per the datagrid source data:

Chart Tutorial

The AxisTitle class declares properties that define the common appearance settings of a title which is displayed by a particular axis.

Properties exposed via the AxisTitle class allow you to customize common title attributes, such as:

* the axis title's text (Title.Text),
* the color and font settings of the title's text (TitleBase.TextColor and TitleBase.Font),
* apply antialising (smoothing) to the title's text (TitleBase.Antialiasing),
* the alignment of the axis title (Alignment),
* the visibility of the axis title (TitleBase.Visible).


Persist data in a dynamically populated ListBox in a user control


Hi All,

I am trying to persist data in a dynamically populated ListBox in a user control. Here are the details

I have a user control which contains a a listBox and button. On Page_Load of user control I am populating the ListBox control with some values. On Click of button, I am trying to fetch the values which I have selected in ListBox. Though this seems very simple and straight forward I am unable to fetch values.

crystal report -visual studio 2008 dual axis chart (bar & line)


dear all, 

i use crystal report integrated with  vs.2008, and i want to make chart with dual axis (bar & line).

i have used bar chart and input the data with 2 values..

then in chart options > template, i activated the dual axis..

my question is, how i can change the 2nd value with line chart not bar chart??

i'd tried to find the right settings in "chart options" but still can't find the solution.

for information in "chart options" there are 4 sub menu : template, general,titles,grid..

i read in a tutorial there's more sub menu called "series" in crystal report (stand alone version)..

is it possible doing it in Crystal Report VS. 2008?

please,, i need your advice and solution..

Thanx before..

ActiveX and Visual Basic: Enhance the Display of Long Text Strings in a Combobox or Listbox


The combobox and listbox controls in Visual Basic have no built-in support for displaying text strings that are too long to fit in the visible area of either control. This article describes several techniques to improve the readability of long strings in each control. The first technique uses tooltips to display a combobox or listbox item. The other techniques, which use various Windows APIs, include adding a horizontal scrollbar for a listbox and determining the necessary width of the longest string given the font attributes of the text. The required steps are described for both comboboxes and listboxes.

setting scroll position for a ListBox


I have a ListBox control showing 10 rows.  I have 30 rows total in the listbox.  How do I programmatically adjust the scroll to show the last ten rows?

Some sources have suggested that I set the SelectedItem.  But I am already making selections (myListBox.Items[28].Selected = true, myListBox.Items[29].Selected = true, etc); the listbox scroll is positioned on Item[0] not the first selected item.  I have also tried setting myListBox.SelectedItem in addition to the multiple selection just mentioned but that does not have any affect either.


Filter a listbox with textbox


So i currently filter the listbox with some javascript i have found.
What it does is going to the item i type on the textbox.
It will not filter the listbox so it will contain the specific matches.
I was reading for autocomplete but i don't seem to find this 2 way usage.
I was also reading this article:
But i'm completely lost on how i can implement it.
Any ideas?

Chart X axis is in Time



My application work in this ways. I got a database collect data from 20 sensors. Database holds Temperature and DateTime data/Records from sensors. So i would like to make it whenever i view the chart, it will plot a line chart one by one according to the temperature and timestamp(DateTime). Which mean my X axis is a colleborate time on that particular date. Anyone did this before or advice ? Thanks.

I already design a in the way that the line chart will plot base on both dropdownlist, Sensor ID and Date. So it will work like whenever i select a Date or ID it will read the records from database table temperature.

How to reference a listbox from a procedure


I have a listbox that gets loaded from a couple of different places on my web form.

I would like to put the code to load the listbox in one place, rather than have two copies of it.

The problem is, I can't figure out how to reference the listbox control successfully from within a procedure.

Would anyone know how to do this?

My code looks like this:

private static bool LoadSubscriptionListBox(System.Web.UI.Page Page)
        bool bReturn = false;

        // Clear the listbox

        // Load the listbox



the list.aspx bad behaviour


I have two tables : table1 (primary) and table2 with one to many relation .

table 1 has more than 130 000 records , table2 has near to 200 000 records .


when i am trying to list table2 , the table2/list.aspx will build filter depending on the relation.; this operation slows down the page (drop down list with 130 000 record)

 I disabled the filter by using the attribute AutoGenerateFilter = False .


now the problem is that table2/list.aspx?key=value will list all the recoreds in table 2 .


why is the page not using the query that is related to the parmeter passed to it ?


List.aspx (or list.aspx?key=value) will always get all the recorders from the table2  after disabling the key relation filter .

I want my table2/list.aspx?key=value  to query the table2 depending on the passed key which is the expected behaviour .

please advice .













How to create a custom Gantt Chart for SharePoint using VS

So I have been told you can't create a custom gantt chart using SharePoint Designer.  I don't believe that actually, there must be a way to create one from scratch using SPD and a Data View and editing the XSL directly....but assuming there is not..

Are there any articles that explain for a non-developer how to create a custom gantt chart for a SharePoint site using Visual Studio 2008?


ASP.NET DateTime Conversion strange behaviour



I am working on ASP.NET web application where we are using javascript calendar to accept the date in textboxes. The date format is dd/mm/yyyy. The application is running in US and UK environments.

I am facing issues in US environment while storing the dates so I have added 2 keys in config file viz culture which will be either en-US or en-GB depending on the deployment location and baseCulture which will always be en-GB.

In the code, I have added a condition which checks if culture and baseCulture values are not matching then do the conversion of date in US format.

But I have found that the code converts the date from dd/mm/yyyy to mm/dd/yyyy when the key is baseCulture (en-GB) and it throws FormatException when key is culture (en-US).

I am bit confused by this behaviour. Is this normal? Can any one please explain more about this? Note: I am working on a machine which has en-US as language and culture

<add key="culture" value="en-US" />
<add key="baseCulture" value="en-GB" />
// This line works and converts the date from 26/08/2010 to 08/26/2010
// Here the baseCulture is en-GB.
DateTime dt = DateTime.Parse(txtCurrentDate,baseCulture)

// This line throws FormatException. culture
