overriding Text property of an inherited label

Posted By:      Posted Date: December 04, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Windows Application


I'm writing a new control that inherits a Label.  this control is intended to maintain a fixed string value of "Text" but display whatever contracted portion of the original text will fit inside the bounds limited by this control's width.  e.g. if "Engineers are the modern wizards" doesn't fit within the width allowed the text displayed is contracted to "Enginrs ar th modrn wzrds".

public class LabelTextAdjustToSize : Label
string[] strWords;
string strSplit = " .,:;-+=-_!?";
string strVowels = "aeiouyAEIOUY";
string[] strDiphthongs = { "ae", "oi", "ou", "ie." };
public string _strText;

public override string Text

Modal Popup - Unable to set label text property



I have ajax accordion with 6 panes with an user control inside each of it.
 In the first pane I have a form view user control and have a modalpopup to
display error message. The same method is used in all other panes.

On page load I was able to set the label text property and it properly shows in modal popup.

However whenever I do some validation and update label text property, the modal popup
shows up but the label text property is not updated. It works in all other panes.

The only difference is the user control in the pane is inside of a update panel. If I remove the

update panel every thing works fine. But I need the update panel to avoid full post back.

How do I set the label text property inside of a modal popup.

Sections of code below:




protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        lblNewMessage.Text = "Error";

 protected void FormView1_ItemCommand(object sender, FormViewCommandEventArgs e)
	 if (!doValidate() ) { return; }
    public bool doValidate()
        if (!psClassUtil.check_isnull_or_empty(firstName, 30, "N"))
            lblNewMessage.Text = "First Name is required (Maximum 30 characters)."; // does not

How Do I Not Include: myControl.GetType.GetProperty("Text") When No Property Window Setting?

Hi All, Posted below is code I'm using to generate a list of controls that have either a "Text" or "Caption" property. However, for certain controls in the resulting list, the property setting (Text/Caption) does not appear in the "Property Window" of the IDE when that control is selected. One example of this is the Systems.Windows.Forms.PictureBox control. Is there a way I can determine this and if so - how do I exclude these control(s) from my list?     Private Sub cmdValidateControls_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles cmdValidateControls.Click         txtResults.Clear()         For Each ctrl As Object In Me.Controls             LogControl(ctrl)         Next     End Sub     Private Sub LogControl(ByVal ctrlIn As Object)         If System.Diagnostics.Debugger.IsAttached Then             If (Not ctrlIn.GetType.GetProperty("Text") Is Nothing) Or (Not ctrlIn.GetType.GetProperty("Caption") Is Nothing) Then                 txtRes

Textbox Text Property

I am new to VB and I have read that if I don't explicity cast variable types it will eat up performance. I have been casting certain objects, such as values from data readers, but I was wondering if the object has a property that says it is a string, like the textbox "Text" property, if I need to still cast that as a string.   Right now my code says "txtSearch.Text" but should I be using "txtSearch.Text.ToString()"?   Thanks in advance for the help!

Generic Casting to access Text property


I have a situation where I'm iterating through all the controls on a form, specifically looking out for any of these three types of controls:  Labels, TextBoxes, CheckBoxes

I can, of course, get the type of the control and then use a Switch-Case construct to cast labels as Labels, textboxes as TextBoxes, and checkboxes as CheckBoxes.

But I'm wondering if there's a way to do something with one or two lines of code to gain access to the Text property of each of these controls?

I'm guessing this isn't possible but thought I'd ask to be sure,


Hide Label Based on Label Text?


Is it possible to display or hide a label based on the text rendered in it?
I have a label that will display the value of a control on the previous page. If the value rendered is "0" then I want to hide the label or hide the label and one more label associated with it. (or if the value is more than "0" make it visible)

Any suggestions would be great.

C# data bound combobox: display selected item text in separate label.content


I am new to C# but I'm resisting the urge to run screaming back to VB.NET. I'm working with a WPF application using C# code-behind and a lot of binding to a SQL 2005 database backend.

GOAL: I have a comboBox bound to a tbl_Systems entity which provides a list of systems for user selection. When the User selects a system from the comboBox I want to display the selection's text in a separate Label. The big picture is that several comboBox selections will be used to build a query string that will populate a listbox. So, I want to display these selected values in the Label so the user can see the query string they have dictated.

PROBLEM: When I set the Label content property to the comboBox SelectedItem property the entity tbl_System is displayed in the Label not the comboBox selection text.

SUSPICION: From reading similar examples in VB I suspect that the comboBox SelectedItem is actually a "datarowview" or the C# equivalent. But I don't know how to translate this explanation to C#.

The UI XAML comboBox properties are set as such:
