Saving Screen Layout Per User

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

Hello all this is a general question about Saving the application's layout on a per user basis.

I currently have a handful of user controls which the user can drag and drop on the screen. I want to provide a way for them to save the layout, but not quite sure which the best approach would be.

Any suggestions would greatly be appreciated

Silverlight user control, canvas "layout root", no key events ever.



I'm trying to use a UserControl in Silverlight and I want to handle some key events. The user control is a network diagram, laying out data points in a circle and showing the relations between points. It consists of a canvas to which various shapes (ellipses for data points, lines for relations between points). I'd like it to be focusable and receive mouse and keyboard events to add support for things like rotation, scaling, and randomizing the layout of data points (how readable the diagram is depends on the data and where in the circle related data points are located, but I'm not going to attempt any smart layout logic that figures out where to put the points; instead, I simply allow the points to be laid out in random order along the circle); I was thinking F5 (with it's "reload/refresh" connotations) would be a neat key for this.

Trouble is, I am never ever receiving any key events. Mouse events apparently do bubble up to the canvas, but only from labels - the data points have labels - so I can handle them there. Currently this allows me to resize and rotate the diagram by scrolling the mouse wheel (with the shift key down to rotate, without to scale) if and only if the mouse cursor is over a label. Not *quite* what I want!

After some quick googling I've attempted to set IsTabStop to true on the UserControl containing the Canva

Copy images to page layout or to wiki page - looking for the user-friendly way of work!



I found that when copy & paste text and images (from internet site / from word etc.) -

when i'm coping to page layout as "Article Page"  - all the content include images is pasted at once and no farther configuration is needed.

When i'm coping to a wiki page - the images are not always being copied and i have to define the target images library it will be kept in (which makes the edit of wiki page more complex and less user-friendly).

Am i missing something? should i configure something in the "page content" field of the wiki page? or activate any site feature?

profile not saving against user



I have a website that acts as a common user details site for a few other websites. I pass a sersname to it and it gets the profile using

Dim oProfile As ProfileCommon = Profile.GetProfile(UserID)

that part works fine. Now to commit the changes I use the above code to get the profilecommon for the user and then use oProfile.Save() to finish. This saves all the user data to my profile..doesn't matter which profile I use, it always gets saved to mine.


Any ideas?

Snap It! - How to take screen shot using .Net

We all would have used snap shots (screen shots) to illustrate bugs or behavior or something that others could understand by seeing them.

Choosing Between a User Control or Web Part for SharePoint

SharePoint will only display Web Parts on a page. However, there are publicly available shims that allow you to write user controls and have them be displayed as a Web Part. From SharePoint's point of view, the shim is a Web Part. From the point of view of the user control, the shim is simply a control in .NET that is including the user control

Creating Sites/Lists/List Items under Current User Context in SharePoint By Using SPUserToken

Usually we do this by performing the action under RunWithElevatedPrivileges method and updating the listitem using SPListItem.SystemUpdate() method (see here). but this approach has its own flaws like (RunWithElevatedPrivileges will run under system account, we cannot use SystemUpdate for SPSite,SPWeb,SPList, since it runs under system we will "CreatedBy" by as SystemAccount).

We might have seen colleague tracker web part which keep tracks the changes made in our contacts/colleagues details like profile/lists/sites. The same tracking mechanism can be implemented by using MOSS API in any custom web part/ web control/ feature/web service...

UserProfile.GetColleagueChanges is the method which returns all changes happened with the contacts, this method also accepts a Query (UserProfileChangeQuery) where we can specify different parameters to filter the changes

User Defined Functions in Microsoft SQL Server

User Defined Functions are compact pieces of Transact SQL code, which can accept parameters, and return either a value, or a table. They are saved as individual work units, and are created using standard SQL commands. Data transformation and reference value retrieval are common uses for functions. LEFT, the built in function for getting the left part of a string, and GETDATE, used for obtaining the current date and time, are two examples of function use. User Defined Functions enable the developer or DBA to create functions of their own, and save them inside SQL Server.
