Combobox and Enter key

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 26, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

I have added a combobox to my page. Listview is updated based on selection from combobox. It is working great except it does not fire when Enter is pressed. User has to click on option from dropdown or has to press tab key to have Listview to populate. I want the user to be able type use arrow key to select option and then press the enter key for event to fire.

ActiveX and Visual Basic: Enhance the Display of Long Text Strings in a Combobox or Listbox


The combobox and listbox controls in Visual Basic have no built-in support for displaying text strings that are too long to fit in the visible area of either control. This article describes several techniques to improve the readability of long strings in each control. The first technique uses tooltips to display a combobox or listbox item. The other techniques, which use various Windows APIs, include adding a horizontal scrollbar for a listbox and determining the necessary width of the longest string given the font attributes of the text. The required steps are described for both comboboxes and listboxes.

Enter your credentials to connect to the web service


When trying to publish an InfoPath 2007 form template (as a Content Type), I am getting the following message with a UserName/Password dialog box:
Enter your credentials to connect to the following web service: http://MySitePath/_vti_bin/Webs.asmx

When I enter my credentials, the above dialog box appears again. I have carefully entered my credential. Another thing I noticed that despite this error I see the form got created at the destination library. The only thing is that the Content Type did not get created and hence is not available in the "Site Content Type Gallery".

We are using Sharepoint 2007 enterprise edition. And I have recently published the InfoPath form templates several time as Content type without any issue.


Please help. Thanks........

Binding value to combobox or dropdown

Weird "string;#" in combobox


Ok, while I am digging and digging myself into the world that's called Sharepoint I come to the next challenge.


I have two lists Projects List and Project Issues. They both have an id field (which is not the ID field of the record) and a title. I created two calculated fields for both of the tables which combines the title and the number for displaying in other pages.



Projects List:

ProjectID: 2008-001

Project Name: First Project in 2008

Display Name (which is the calculated field): 2008-001 First Project in 2008


The calculated field formula is: =[ProjectID]&" "&[Project Name]

The field returns a string.


I also have a Worksheet list where my workers have to fill in their working hours. In this list I have two lookup fields. O

ComboBox text/value selection?


When we select a value from combobox list, we can get it by combobox.selectedvalue.text, however when we enter a new value in combobox, we can get it by combobox.text when submitting a form.  During submission, how will we handle this situation? Either there is a single way of getting value in both situations or we'll have to tackle both situations separately?

Please help me tackling this situation. Thanks

WPF ComboBox Loaded Event - Handling Globally

Hello, I am having trouble hooking up to a WPF ComboBox Loaded event when trying to do it globally with EventManager.RegisterClassHandler in the parent control rather than with XAML right on the control.  Here is the code for the ComboBox control: <DataTemplate x:Key="MyUIEditor"> <ComboBox Width='Auto' x:Name="Combo" ItemsSource="{Binding RelativeSource={RelativeSource FindAncestor, AncestorType={x:Type local:MyControlWPG}}, Path=MyCollection}" SelectedValue="{Binding Value}" DisplayMemberPath="Name" SelectedValuePath="FullName" Background="Transparent" /> </DataTemplate>   Here is the code for the global event handler:   public partial class MyControlWPG : UserControl public MyControlWPG() { InitializeComponent(); EventManager.RegisterClassHandler(typeof(ComboBox), ComboBox.LoadedEvent, new RoutedEventHandler(Combo_Loaded)); } The event handler gets hit when I declare Loaded = "Combo_Loaded" in the XAML right on the ComboBox control but not when I use the global handler.  Any ideas as to why it doesn't get hit when doing it this way?

Combobox in DataGridView

Hi, How do I setup a selected value for a combobox column in datagridview? Unlike a regular combobox I can't use: SelectedValue = 1; I'll give an example :Let's say I have a datagrid which is consisted of two datasets tables: one table which contains 300 entries for different types of cars, and a combobox column which contains a list of 10 car makers (that's the second table). The car maker's code is the primary key in the combobox column's value member and the foreign key in the first table. How do I load the datagrid so that t the combobox will display the correct car maker for every car entry (300 in total)? here's my current code: private void SetupDataGridView() { this.Controls.Add(carsGrid); DataGridViewComboBoxColumn comboGrid = new DataGridViewComboBoxColumn(); carsGrid.DataSource = dsCars.Tables[1]; carsGrid.DisplayMember = "CarMakerName"; carsGrid.ValueMember = "CarMakerID"; carsGrid.DataSource = dsCars.Tables[0]; carsGrid.Columns.Add(comboGrid); } Thanks, Udi

Sorting a ListBox or ComboBox on a Converted Value

Is it possible to apply a Converter to the SortDescription of a CollectionViewSource?  My ViewModel contains a List<> of a class that contains an enum and a Boolean.  My XAML displays a multi-select ListBox, showing the localized names of the enum values using a Converter in the View, and binds each ListBoxItem's IsSelected to the Boolean in the members of the bound List<>.  That's working.  Now I want to sort the ListBox items by those localized enum names, without reordering the List<> in the ViewModel.  Is this possible, and if so, how can it be done?
