wpf media element fast forward

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


I am using media element to play the movie.My current fast forward and fast rewind logic is as below.

MediaElement.position = MediaElement.position + TimeSpan.FromSeconds(10);(for fast forward) MediaElement.position = MediaElement.position - TimeSpan.FromSeconds(10);(for fast rewind)

During fast forward when the movie is over, Media Ended event is called up. I thought that it stays at the last frame where as movie ended event is called and coming out of movie.

During fast rewind, it statys at the first frame of the movie. Any idea why it is happening like that? Any suggestions/ideas to display last frame of the movie during Fast forward.

Playing a movie inside a media element




The code below doesn't work for me.  The window displays fine but the movie file does not play inside the media element.  I'm new to WPF and found the snippet of code in the help files, but can't get it to work.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Fast read only, forward only cursor from managed code.


I am refining some design after testing other parts of it, this is all going well but we need to now improve the data reading part, doing a bulk "SELECT *" was fine for testing, but is no good for massive tables.

We have a managaed stored proc, coded in C#, we use this to copy a table over a network to a special server of our own, this is an ocassional one-off operation.

I want to recode this stored proc, so that we enumerate a row at a time (or 'n' rows, e.g. 10, 20 etc) and send these over the network.

Doing this iteratively is the goal, I read a little recently about Server Side Cursors which seem ideal, especially for tables with 500,000 rows +

Does ADO.NET provide any managed classes for doing this?

We use .Net 3.5, Visual Studio 2008 and SQL Server 2008 R2.

Performance is key, you can assume that the database is not being updated when this operation is run.




Media Element is not getting stretched


Hi I have a grid. In one of the grid cell i have a label and the label has mediaelement. When I drag the window, the label is getting stretched where as the medial element inside the label is not stretched. Its size remains static. What is the mistake i have done. This is the following code


<Border Grid.Row="1" Grid.Column="0"Background="Black" HorizontalAlignment="Stretch" VerticalAlignment="Stretch">
            <MediaElement Height="Auto" Name="CurrentVideo" HorizontalAlignment="Stretch" VerticalAlignment="Stretch" Stretch="UniformToFill"
                      Source="EvolvingJuliaSet.wmv" LoadedBehavior="Manual" MediaOpened="CurrentVideo_MediaOpened" Width="Auto">


UpdatePanel is not a known element - message when upgrading to 1.0 ajax


It worked on one of my old pages.  I change the web.config, renamed all the <asp.

On some aspx page it doesn't recognize the updatepanel.  It only does on one page.  If I create a new aspx page with a different name - then it works.

Should I just create a new web project ajax - then copy all my code into there?  Or is there a way to get those old pages to recognize the new ajax controls?

get value from xml element



i have this xml

<Value No="1">xyz</Value>

Could not find default endpoint element that references contract 'CurrencyProxy.CurrencyServiceSoap



I created 2 projects in my solution:

  1. Classic asp.net web service (asmx)
  2. Class library project which references service
  3. web site project which references class library project
  4. Windows app project which references service.

Both projects were created in 3.5 framework and in Visual Studio 2008 Beta 2.

I added web service reference to Class library project. When it asked for namespace I typed "CurrencyProxy". Projects build ok, but when I run web app, Class library throws an error: Could not find default endpoint element that references contract 'CurrencyProxy.CurrencyServiceSoap' in the ServiceModel client configuration section. This might be because no configuration file was found for your application, or because no endpoint element matching this contract could be found in the client element.

I believe it has something to do with app.config in Class library project. Here is part from app.config:

<binding name="CurrencyServiceSoap" closeTimeout=

'element.className' is null or not an object



I just downloaded the project, compiled it and ran it right out of the box and when I put the mouse pointer over or remove the mouse pointer from either MenuItem in the menu demo, I generate this error:

'element.className' is null or not an object

It points to this javascript method:

updateClassName: function(operation, element, name, value) {
        this[operation + 'String'](
                function() {
                    return element.className;
                function(newValue) {
                    element.className = newValue;

Modify Menu adapter to show selected


Hey, I need some help modifying the menu adapter code to give child <ul> elements a class value indicating that the parent is selected. It should render like this:

		< a href="/rockit/admin/Default.aspx" class="AspNet-Menu-Link  AspNet-Menu-ChildSelected">
		< span>Mypage< /span>< /a>
			< ul class="AspNet-Sub AspNet-Sub-Selected">
				< li class="AspNet-Menu-Leaf  AspNet-Menu-Selected">
					< a href="/rockit/admin/Default2.aspx" class="AspNet-Menu-Link  AspNet-Menu-Selected">
					< span>Test< /span>< /a>
				< /li>
				< li class="AspNet-Menu-Leaf">
					< a href="/rockit/Default3.aspx" class="AspN

Resource File: Windows Media 9 Series Digital Rights Management


If you have an application that handles Windows Media content and you need an effective way to track content usage, Windows Media 9 Series now offers Digital Rights Management (DRM). It allows you to take advantage of the peer-to-peer distribution model and still redirect users back to your app once they have downloaded your content (prior to viewing).

Windows Forms: Give Your .NET-based Application a Fast and Responsive UI with Multiple Threads


If your application performs any non-UI processing on the thread that controls the user interface, it may make the app seem slow and sluggish, frustrating users. But writing multithreaded apps for Windows has long been restricted to C++ developers. Now with the .NET Framework, you can take advantage of multiple threads in C# to control the flow of instructions in your programs and isolate the UI thread for a fast and snappy user interface. This article shows you how. Also, it discusses the pitfalls of multiple threads and presents a framework for safe concurrent thread execution.
