Mouse.OverrideCursor not working correct

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 28, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WPF

I am confused as to why this isnt working and hoping someone can tell me what I may be doing wrong.  I currently have a WPF app and I am using some Syncfusion controls within it.  Now when I clisk a submit button on my main form I just want to change the mouse pointer to a wait cursor.  I am using the below implementation with which I have found all over the net:

Mouse.OverrideCursor = Cursors.Wait;



 //Do Stuff


catch(Exception Ex)


  //Handle Exception




  //Set our cursor back to normal

  Mouse.OverrideCursor = null;


Now if I step through debug, this works just as it should.  However when I don't set a break point and just let it run, you see it change to the "Wait" cursor real quick, it then turns to the "Arrow" cursor and then at the end where I have a messagebox popup giving a status, when I clcik ok I see the wait cursor come up again really quickly and then flip back to the arrow, which at this point is correct because then I set it back to null.

Something quikly that I would like to add

WorkflowDesigner.Load causes Grid resizing mouse cursor to stop working.


Hi all,

We have a problem where WorklowDesigner.Load() causes the WPF Grid control's resizing mouse cursor not to come up. I have demo app written if anyone wants to double check. http://cid-467e12cdf12776bc.office.live.com/self.aspx/.Public/WpfApplication6.zip


If you just run the demo, you will see the resize cursor will work when you hover over the red grid splitters. However if you go into the wfusercontrol2 control and uncomment this line //wf.Load(new System.Activities.Statements.Flowchart()); , then run the application again you will notice the resize cursor does not show up when hovering over the  grid splitter.


It seems as though under the hood somewhere this exception occurs: Could not load file or assembly 'System.Activities.Presentation.Aero, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.

Code working in XP / 32 bit won't work in Win 7 / 64 bit - "Input string was not in a correct forma


I'm working on a program in VS 2008 / XP 32 bit. So far everything has been working

Working with SharePoint document libraries

Document libraries are collections of files that you can share with team members on a Web based on Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services. For example, you can create a library of common documents for a project, and team members can use their Web browsers to find the files, read them, and make comments. Users with Microsoft Office 2003 can check out and edit the files as if they resided on a local or network drive.

By default, your team Web site comes with a built-in document library named Shared Documents, which is listed on the Quick Launch bar as well as on the Documents and Lists page.

How to highlight datagrid or GridView row on mouse over?

This article will show how you can Ajax with GridView to display popup messages when mouse moves over certain column. In the demo project I have added first column as an image column with a help icon in it. This kind of implements a feature that if you want more information about the row you can move mouse over this icon, a asynchronous request is sent to server for data about that row and when call returns the returned message is show as a popup message.

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
            Dim Extension As String = UploadFileName.Substring(UploadFileName.L

Row command working on all rows not selected one?



I have this code that hides a column in a gridview.  (The column houses another nested gridview).

    Protected Sub GridView1_RowCommand(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.GridViewCommandEventArgs) Handles GridView1.RowCommand
        If e.CommandName = "Select" Then
            If GridView1.Columns(0).Visible = False Then
                GridView1.Columns(0).Visible = True
                GridView1.Columns(0).Visible = False
            End If
        End If
    End Sub

The trouble is that if I click the select link on one row that action to hide is carried out on all rows.  How can I set this up so that it only hides the row that is selected?

I was hoping to just link to with with access but thats apparently not going to happen. I need to link to the database extract data from it to a csv file for later use. I also and most important I need to get the data from it and create a report that can be printed while on a customers site that my or may not have web access so I need for this program to be on and off line. I had my webapplication that I have been working on open and was able to bring up the sdf file under the server exploere however I can't seem to get anything out of it when I try to do grid views or detail views errors out.

Can I use one of Visual Studio projects to create this sort of applicaiton if so what would be the best approach. I would love to get an access odbc driver since office is allready installed on the employee's laptop's
