control not working when created on new thread

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 25, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WPF
 

Hi,

I recently read this article and implemented -

http://blogs.msdn.com/dwayneneed/archive/2007/04/26/multithreaded-ui-hostvisual.aspx

I changed my control (dev express pivot grid) to be created on a secondary background.

The control is loading and displaying faster (great) but now if I try t omove the scrollbar etc nothing happens. The control has stopped responding to events.

Can anyone tell me how to resolve this issue. I'm not exactly sure where to start looking.

I need a way of getting the mouse drag events across to my control on the secondary thread.

Thanks.

Server side validation of Fileupload control not working

  
 

 


I've tried this method in my code behind to try and validate that the Fileupload control has a file or not. I get the error message the the event "Server Validate" cannot be found. Can anyone tell why? Thanks.


Public Sub CustomValidator1_ServerValidate(ByVal source As Object, ByVal args As System.Web.UI.WebControls.ServerValidateEventArgs) Handles CustomValidator1.ServerValidate
       

' Get file name

        Dim uploadAvatar As FileUpload = DirectCast(AdvertisementForm.FindControl("uploadAvatar"), FileUpload)

        Dim UploadFileName As String = uploadAvatar.PostedFile.FileName

        If UploadFileName = "" Then
            ' There is no file selected
            args.IsValid = False
        Else
            Dim Extension As String = UploadFileName.Substring(UploadFileName.L

Localization not working in class library (composite control)

  

Hi

I have a class library called WEM.portal which used Resource files to localise text in my composite controls.

I store my resource files (eg MyResourceFile1.resx) in App_GlobalResources folder and then refer to them using

MyLabel1.text = My.Resources.MyResourceFile1.MyResourceKey1

This is all working ok until I create seperate files for each language such as MyResourceFile1.FR-fr.resx.

I have implemented this throughout my other web applications but the Class Library doesnt seem to want to work the same way

When I load the page it correctly showes the resourced keys which I have done through the web application BUT the resource keys in the composite controls does not seem to pick up the culture code.

Am I missing something stupid. Ive tried

  • changing the Build Action on the resource file to Content and Custom tool to GlobalResourceProxyGenerator
  • Creating a resourceManager but to no avail

Login control not working in IE7

  

I spent the last few weeks getting a client site up and running, but all the while I was doing all my testing with Firefox.

I tried seeing what it would look like in IE7, and everything is great.  Except that I cannot login with it.

 I do not know for the life of me why.

Any ideas?

Get content of programatically created control before postback

  
Hi.I have quite a problem here, and hope you can help :)I´ll try to describe the problem in steps, as this might be the easiest to understand:1. Page_Load is called when the page is requested, and calls a BuildTable() method2. The BuildTable method creates a table which contains several textboxes3. the user types some text in these textboxes4. The userthen  changes an item in a Dropdownlist on the page which is intended to change some other content on the page5. Page_Load is called, and afterwards the DropDownListBookingType_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender,EventArgs e) method are called, and the content is changed6. The text the user typed in the programmatically created textbox controls are lost!Now how do I remain this text information? If just the SelectedIndex_changed method was called first, I could save it in session.. But as far as I can tell, all data on the page are discarded when you create a partial postback :(What to do?Thanks alot for your time!

Drag drop functinality not working on Explore View control for file containing special characters in

  
We have created a control which uses explorer view control for file drag and drop. This functinality works fine for a file having filename without special characters but it gives an error if we drag and drop a file having special characters in the file name. The reason for this is Sharepoint uses WebDAV protocol for file transfer to the Sharepoint document library and WebDAV protocol has limitation that it does'nt accept file with special characters. Please let me know the way how I can accomplish drag and drop of file with special characters in file name, onto Explorer View control with WebDAV.

loadviestate of control created on the load() event

  
Why if I create a label on the load() event its properties are restored after a postback, even though it doesn't pass through the loadviestate stage? Example:Partial Class Default2 Inherits System.Web.UI.Page Protected Overrides Sub LoadViewState(ByVal savedState As Object) MyBase.LoadViewState(savedState) End Sub Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load Dim lb As New Label Me.Controls.Add(lb) If Not Page.IsPostBack Then lb.Text = "xxxx" End If End Sub End Class <%@ Page Language="VB" AutoEventWireup="false" CodeFile="Default2.aspx.vb" Inherits="Default2" %> <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd"> <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"> <head runat="server"> <title>title</title> </head> <body> <form id="form1" runat="server"> <asp:Button ID="Button1" runat="server" Text="Button" /> </form> </body> </html>   And why everybody advice to create controls in the overrides of the method LoadViewState(), if it's ok also in the load() event

InvalidCastException when calling JavaScript from C# control using a second thread.

  
Original Issue: I need to be able to call functions in the JavaScript of an HTML page (not ASP.NET) from a C# object embedded in that page.  The c# object has to be .NET 2 level. So I created a C# DLL assembly in VS 2010 which contains a class called NoUIControlClass. set the target framework to .NET 2.0 and made sure to check "Make assembly COM-Visible".  I also signed the assembly so it would have a strong name so I could install it in the GAC.  So far so good. Here is the batch file I run after the project is built to register the control and place it into the GAC: copy "C:\Users\x\Documents\Visual Studio 2010\Projects\NoUIControl\NoUIControl\bin\Debug\NoUIControl.dll" C:\Exploration\NoUIControl C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\regasm NoUIControl.dll /unregister C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\regasm NoUIControl.dll NoUIControl.dll C:\"Program Files (x86)"\"Microsoft SDKs"\Windows\v7.0A\Bin\gacutil.exe /u NoUIControl.dll C:\"Program Files (x86)"\"Microsoft SDKs"\Windows\v7.0A\Bin\gacutil.exe /i NoUIControl.dll This works and all is good.  Next I've turned the security level in IE all the way down for intranet and trusted sites.  Just to make sure that doesn't get in the way.  Here is the HTML file I serve from the web server. <html> <head

User Control Validation is not working properly

  
In my Website I have header control (header.ascx) and footer control (footer.ascx)In header.ascx one textbox and one button is there. Textbox meant for accepting search string.In footer.ascx one textbox and one button is there. Textbox meant for accepting Email-Id.Now in validation of header.ascx I had done blank checking by JavaScript. And in validation of footer.ascx  I had done blank-checking and e-mail checking by javascript.In both the control the textbox and the button both resides under Panel control whose DefaultButton property set to the respective button ids. So that if User write write something and press ENTER key from keyboard then it should do whatever respective Button_Clicks will do.Now My problem is suppose I place the mouse cursor in footer.ascx's textbox and press the ENTER key it validates properly but after that if I place the cursor inheader.ascx's textbox and press the ENTER then it is not working. Again If I do the opposite then also first one will fire but in case of second it is not firing .......

Bind control to results from thread

  
Hello,  I can't find best practice to my issue, I will appreciate any help from you – Please let me know what you think about it:  My application request data by threads. Each thread have those events: OnStarting – Fires just before the thread start its job. OnFound – Can be fire more than one for each thread. The result from thread can be received here OnFinish - Fires just after the job finish.  The scenario is something like that: Let's say I have WinForm contains RadioButton for "Search Type" and Button for "Start Search". The user choose the search type and press on "Start Search". According the search type the form knows to place new control like Grid or TextBox on the form. The result from thread (The thread do the searching job) should display in the appropriate control which opened for this specific search.  My question: What is the best practice to bind control to the result from thread ?   Options: 1.     Save Key=Value list for Thread=Control 2.     Create MyGrid / MyTextBox with even OnFill. The application will use OnFill as callback in the threads. 3.     Any other suggestion will be very welcome.   Thanks in advance !
