Double click requirement to open menu

Posted By:      Posted Date: December 04, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Windows Application
Hi, In my application, The main form (having main menu on its top) opens an other form calling .show() method. While the second form(Called via .show() method) is in front of main form, if I click on the menu of Main form it requires 2 click. First to activate the main form and then the second one to open the menu drop down. Is there any way that I could open the menu of main form in the above mentioned scenario in 1 click only. Thanks & Regards, Maverick.

SQL file will not open in SSMS on double-click (or jump list)


Hello, all.

I am running SQL Server Management Studio 2008 on a Windows 7 Enterprise machine here at work.  I am not sure when this started happening, but now, for some reason, when I double-click on a SQL file in Explorer, or from the jump list for SSMS (which I have pinned to my Windows 7 task bar), SSMS will open, but will not load the file in question, nor will it bring up a logon screen to connect to a DB.  I tried unassociating the .SQL extension and then re-associating it using "Open With" and it worked the first time (from the Open With), but then immediately reverted back to its old behavior.  Very annoying.

For now I just open SSMS first (which pops up a logon screen and things proceed normally), but that kind of defeats the purpose of having a jump list or a file association.  Has anybody run into this before and can anybody suggest a fix or what's wrong?

Thanks in advance for any wisdom anyone can provide. 

Double click an associated file type and have it open in your WPF application?


I have a WPF application that does a number of things. When running the app, I can go to File > Open, browse to a file, and open it in the app. Fields on the UI are updated with values from the file and everything works great.

The file I am opening contains binary data and has a custom file extension that is associated with my application. The problem is that if I DON'T have the WPF application running and I double click one of my associated files, it simply opens the application. I would like it to open the application and then load the contents of the file I clicked on. How can I go about doing this?

I have looked into using the Application_Startup event handler in the App.xaml.cs but cannot get the filename when double clicking on it as my StartupEventArgs are empty. However, the sender.ToString from Application_Startup handler returns "MyCompany.MyApp.App". How can I get the filename and go about loading it?

Another thing is that if I put a breakpoint in the Application_Startup event handler and double click my associated file, I never hit the breakpoint. The only way I hit the breakpoint is when I run the application from the IDE. I would like to be able to double click a file, then hit the breakpoint so I can do some debugging.

Thanks in advance.

Can I open the "new" menu in a SharePoint Document Library using Dragon NaturallySpeaking?


When a user, who uses Dragon NaturallySpeaking, says "new" when viewing a Document Library the default content type is selected and the associated application (e.g. Microsoft Word) is launched. This scenario is okay for Content Type selection since the Microsoft Office applications will prompt for the metadata once the file is saved.

If the user needs to create new folders in the Document Library however they need to expand the "new" dropdown menu.

What is the best way for someone using Dragon NaturallySpeaking to expand the "new" menu for a Document Library in SharePoint?

Context Menu And Mouse Click Issue

Hello. I am trying to show a context menu at runtime on MouseRightButtonUp, while over a selected image. I also have left mouse button events set up for the selected image. For some reason I cannot get the context menu to show unless I click the left mouse button and while it is held down click the right mouse button and keep it down while I release the left mouse button, followed by releasing the right mouse button. I tested the MouseRightButtonUp event using a simple MessageBox and did not have any problems; it worked as expected when the right mouse button was released. Here is the code: //add behavior for right mouse on this image. img.MouseRightButtonUp += (sender, e) => { //Create Context Menu ContextMenu menu = new ContextMenu(); //img is an Image img.ContextMenu = menu; //Add context menu item MenuItem photoNewWindow = new MenuItem(); photoNewWindow.Header = "Open Original Image"; photoNewWindow.Click += OpenOriginal; //Add menu items to context menu menu.Items.Add(photoNewWindow); //change the current image currentImage = img; }; // add behavior for mouse click on this image. img.MouseLeftButtonUp += (sender, e) => { // left mouse stuff }; Thanks!

Open ContextMenuStrip on left mouse click on NotifyIcon

Hi,I was working with an application and faced this problem, I have this code :public partial class Form2 : Form    {        public Form2()        {            InitializeComponent();        }        private void notifyIcon1_MouseClick(object sender, MouseEventArgs e)        {            if (e.Button == MouseButtons.Left)            {                contextMenuStrip1.Show(this, Control.MousePosition); // Or any other overload            }        }        private void Form2_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)        {            notifyIcon1.Icon = Icon;        }    }Here, in design mode, i have set contextMenuStrip1 as notifyIcon1's ContextMenuStrip. When I right click on notifyIcon1, it opens the context menu and when I click somewhere else, it closes. But with my code opens the contextmenu on left click and when I open context menu that way, it shows in taskbar and doesn't close when I click some where else.In short, I want to open contextmenustrip when user left clicks and right clicks on the notifyicon and it works well with right click by default but not with left click. And I want to avoid using SendMessage to send left click message.Is there any way I can work this out?

Open another Form from my Main form using a button click


Hi All


I have seen this question asked and answered several times but it doesn't seem to be the question. I have.


I have just created a new project I renamed form1 to FrmMain and then I created a new form by clicking add new form and I named it Report


I then went to my FrmMain and dropped a button on there from the toobox. I now need to open Report.cs when I click the button.


I have tried               Report Form2 = new Report();



But all that does it open a new FORM and its not my Report Form. It also just keeps opening new forms every time I click the button. My thought is that the user will enter a ID then click the button then the report form will open and I will then create a query to populate a data gride or view using the ID form the text box on FrmMain.


Please help.... I am new to this so shoot it straight as if this was your first forms application that you created.



GridView and mouse double click Response.Redirect problem


VS 2005, AJAX 

I use gridview and I need single and double click for each row in gridview.

When I click once on a row, some action will execute (e.g. next button should be enabled) and when I double click the row there should be redirection to another page.

I used the code below for both single and double click  usage:


protected void GwContainers_RowDataBound(object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)
                if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow)
                    // Get the LinkButton control in the first cell

                    LinkButton singleClickButton = (LinkButton)e.Row.Cells[8].Controls[0];
                    // Get the javascript which is assigned to this LinkButton
