WinForms Controls under Windows 7

I have a small WinForms application which looks fine under Windows XP. When it's run under Windows 7 the controls look awful. The TabControl uses different sizing (horizontal/vertical dimensions) and tab spacing. The images in buttons are very small and lose definition. The CheckBox is very tiny. The height of the header row for DataGridView controls is very small, even though I have set an explicit height. Controls in a certain dialog box do not even work unless I "Disable visual themes" on the Compatibility tab of the application properties. I had carefully sized and aligned controls for a clean appearance under Windows XP. Windows 7 appears to have destroyed those efforts. What's going on and how can I restore the appearance to be as desired? Thanks!

Select multiple controls on tabpage, Drag & Drop control(s) (WinForms)


I'm wondering, if somebody got some code or thoughts for selecting multiple control displayed on tab page and drag & drop control on tab page it self. Something like on windows desktop, where you can draw a rectangel with mouse cursor to select folder and files. Also, drag folder or files to different location.



Place controls on form (WinForms C#)


Hello! I cannot place controls on form and set them to be resized on resizing whole window (or when it is maximized).

I have a ListView at the bottom (docked to bottom border), a TabControl at the leftside (docked left) and all other area should be filled by one more control - WebBrowser. But if I dock it to FILL all area it goes behind tabcontrol and listview... what am I doing wrong here?

Can I use WinForms, ASP.NET and Silverlight with the same WCF service?



I'm exploring WCF, trying to find my feet and decide if it's the right architecture for our project. We are looking at having a WCF service that provides a central point of access for various clients, including WinForms, ASP.NET and Silverlight 4. We are using self-tracking entities (STEs).

I have tested out a solution in which I can have a WCF service and use it from WinForms and ASP.NET without any problems. I used the STE T4 template, and put the STEs in their own class library, which I referenced from the client project. This all worked fine.

I ran into trouble trying to build a Silverlight 4 client to access the same WCF service. It seems that SL can't reference a non-SL project, so I can't use the same STE project as I used in the other client. I added a SL class library, hoping I could use that in the non-SL clients, but this didn't work.

So, it looks like I am going to have to have two separate WCF services, one that sends out plain old STEs, and one that uses a SL version if I want to get this to work. Frankly this is unacceptable, and one of the main points of having a single point of access was consistency. If we have to maintain two separate services, we lose a lot of that.

I have searched in vain for an answer to this, which surprises me as I would have expected many people to want to do such a thing.


Silverlight controls disabled



  I just installed sliverlight 3 tools on my machine. I see the silverlight xaml controls faded or disabled in the visual studio 2008 toolbox. I wonder why? The same thing is happening  on my other machine that has Visual studio 2010 installed with silverlight4 tools on it.

Anybody has some helpful hints on this?

Silverlight User Controls and n-tier architecture.


Hi. I'd like to add a datagrid in silverlight that it's data source is a cmsPage. Now the existing system is a projectLess website that uses the 3 tier architecture to retrive cmsPages (ASP.Net 4.0). How can I connect the datagrid user control in the silverlight application to the Buisness logic layer? The other alternative I see is sending to the usercontrol a dataset - how do I accomplish that?


Thanks in advance,
