How to create a dynamically populated items in a listbox and use it as a navigation?

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 27, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WPF
Hello, I am trying to create navigation inside a listbox menu. I load data from xml to populate a list. Each item in the list box should be a link or button. Then, I create a frame to load xaml pages in it. I tested to load pages employing button control, outside listbox with on click event and it worked well. However, I cannot make it work with list box items. I am hoping to get help from you. Any sample or ideas are highly appreciated. Below is the code:  XML: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <Pages> <page id="page01"> <name>Page 01</name> </page> <page id="page02"> <name>Page 02</name> </page> </Pages> C# to initiate a click o n listbox item and get the path to page: private void SelectionChanged(object sender, System.Windows.Controls.SelectionChangedEventArgs e) { ListBoxItem lbi = ((sender as ListBox).SelectedItem as ListBoxItem); string itemName = lbi.Content.ToString(); if ( Nav_ListBox.SelectedItem.Equals("Page01" ) ) { ContentFrame.Source = new Uri("Pages/Page01.xaml", UriKind.RelativeOrAbsolute); } } XAML:  <ListBox x:Name="Nav_ListBox" Margin="0" ScrollViewer.HorizontalScrollBarVisibility="Hidden" Background="#FFF2F2F2" ItemTemplate="{DynamicReso

Dynamically Drop and Create tables, overcoming 4000 charachter limit

We have a Navision SQL-server database for 7 companies. Each table starts with the name of the company. Except for the CompanyName-part, the tables names are equal. I made a Foreach loop that dynamically transfers tables/data from the the Navision-database to a staging-database. I also want to Drop and re-Create the tables dynamically. However, if I try to do that via an expression in a SQL Task, SSIS complains about the 4000 character limit. What is a better way to do this? I want to execute SQL-commands and have SSIS replace part of the tablename with the contents of a variable (being the name of one the 7 companies). I have no access to the Management Studio or the DB so I need it to be done within the package. What is the best way to do that?

What is the best way to dynamically create a scrollable list of forms that when clicked expand for e

Hello, What is the best way to dynamically create a scrollable list of forms that when clicked expand for entry? More details: In my XAML I have a TabControl. One particular TabItem looks like this:   <TabItem Name="Tab_Forms" Header="4" Width="50" Height="20" Background="{x:Null}" BorderBrush="{x:Null}"> <Border Name="Tab_CategoryTabSelected_Border" BorderThickness="10" BorderBrush="Transparent" Padding="3"> <... What do I use here? ...> </Border> </TabItem> At the location <... What do I use here? ...> I need some sort of scrollable control.  The scrollable control can be part of the XAML above. However, the contents of that scrollable control will be entirely code generated. Within that scrollable control will be a vertical list of forms by name with an expansion/contract button next to the name.  When the user clicks the expansion button, the form expands into view, and may be longer than the viewable area, and the user will need to be able to enter data into the entry fields.  I need the tab key to go from field to field as would be expected. If the user is on the last viewable field and there are more fields below, when the user hits the tab key, the for

Selecting Items in a databound ListBox

Hi All, I'm facing a problem while trying to programatically preselect few items in a databound ListBox. I have set the datasource of the listbox to a DataTable, with required Data and Value member columns. The selection mode of the listbox is MULTIEXTENDED. Platform: .NET  1.1 (not sure if the problem is relevant to other versions) I tried preselecting items in a different ListBox that is not bound to any datasource. I'm able to preselect items using the SetSelected method. Perfect!   How can I achieve the same for a databound ListBox? What am I missing? Any help will be very much appreciated.   Regards, Amirtha
