Resource Dictionary

Posted By:      Posted Date: May 22, 2011    Points: 0   Category :JQuery

I am trying to use a Resource dictionary globally, like i do not want to specify resource directory in each xaml page,

I tried to specify it in app.xaml, Resources like

                <ResourceDictionary x:Name="Something" Source="Themes\something.xaml" />

Why can't I load an an external resource dictionary that contains type converters?

Basically what I'm doing is putting a bunch of type converters as resources in a ResourceDictionary contained in an externally referenced assembly. Let's call the assembly WpfCommon. I'm directly referencing the assembly from my main application. In the App.xaml:       <Application.Resources>         <ResourceDictionary>             <ResourceDictionary.MergedDictionaries>                 <ResourceDictionary Source="pack://application:,,,/Common.Wpf;component/Wpf/ResourceDictionaries/Converters/Converters.xaml"/>             </ResourceDictionary.MergedDictionaries>         </ResourceDictionary>     </Application.Resources>   Converters.xaml:   <ResourceDictionary xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"     xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"     xmlns:Common_Wpf_Converters="clr-namespace:Common.Wpf.Converters">     <ResourceDictionary>         <Common_Wpf_Convert

What is the recommended format for vector icons in resource dictionary?

It seems that Expression Design wants to export vector graphics in resource dictionary format as DrawingBrushes.  These are a bit of a pain to use in something like a MenuItem.Icon.  So I have been converting the DrawingBrushes to DrawingImages.  The only downside I've run into so far is that I can't figure out how to force the DrawingImage to be a certain size say 20x20 where the content may not take up that whole size.  The issue is that when you put these vector icons on a toolbar and you want the images to align, it is tricky when each icon is a slightly different height.

Static and Dynamic Resources with Brush and Resource Dictionary

Hi, We're using a huge resource dicionary with all the styles and templates for our controls. Some of these are the images that we use for some buttons and icons in the application. As far as I know, Static and Dynamic resources have nothing to do with the ResourceDictionary and The Brush, i could use any of them, if i need the resource to load only when needed i could use dynamic and if i want it to load on initialization time i should use Static. But everytime i try to use a static resource to define a Fill of a rectangle my application crashes on initialization time (when it exectues the InitializeComponents). The resource i'm using is a DrawingBrush that is declared on my resource dictionary and the only way i could make it works is defining it as DynamicResource. What is the limitation? Its realy impossible to define a static resource on a fill property, and if its realy impossible, why?

Wpf - User control or dictionary resource



i am beginner in programming WPF - and sorry for my English :).

I am trying lern to use namespace and class in WPF.

I have to question :

1) In the DictionaryResource I can create ContextMenu and later assign this ConterxtMenu to TextBox ( using StaticResource ).

The same I can achieve when I using UserControl ( I create ContextMenu as UserControl and assign to TextBox ).

Do any of these ways is preferred for certain applications such as DictionaryResource apply rather to give the appearance rather than creating the whole ContextMenu?

Are there other ways to share the code?

2) I created such a ContextMenu in ResourceDIctionary (in a separate file.) It has two entries such as "Show", "Close." Signed it to a TextBox in my main window.

And now how to call the (assigned) ContextMenu event to "Show" to change the text in the TextBox?

Can't find resource dictionary

Include Button Click Event in WPF Resource dictionary's CodeBehind file

I have 3 buttons as a part of menu in my MainWindow.xaml file.  
On click of these I have a Common Grid that gets populated with the
 data from my database. Now for these i have set various Control
 templates with 3 different keys for my 3 different options.

Coming to my main point. When I include Click events under my
 Gridview and compile, it doesn't let me to do so cause of error.
 And to overcome this i made use of a Code behind C# Class file for
 my resourcedictionary (styles.xaml) that is styles.xaml.cs.
I got this from http://stackoverflow.com/questions/92100/is-it-possible-to- set-code-behind-a-resource-dictionary-in-wpf-for-event-handling

But As soon as i follow all procedure mentioned at above link it
says me ... Error Message: 'X' does not contain a definition for 'show'

type 'X' could be found (are you missing a using directive or an

Thinking about new C# method prototypes: object as dictionary

I recently had to write a small Flickr API. I know many .Net API for Flickr already exist but I needed one for a Silverlight application. Whatever, it's only about building some querystrings so I did it by myself. It's been an opportunity to think again about a classical question: how to pass parameters to a method ?

Imagine you have a generic method to call some Flickr functions.

Printing resource files



I have some resource files for localization and would like to print them. When I try to print them in Visual Studio (with File -> Print...) the button is disabled. Does anyone know how to print them? (Without copying each into word or excel)

Thanks and regards,

set messageTemplateResourceName from resource file in Validation appication block.



  I am using Validation application block in my project and want to set validation message from resource file, but not able to do that. I tried giving the path of resource file in messageTemplateResourceType and name of resource in messageTemplateResourceName. But it did not help as I only receive the message if I have set something in messageTemplate even after setting the resource file.

Here is my code:

<validator lowerBound="1" lowerBoundType="Inclusive" upperBound="250"
              upperBoundType="Inclusive" negated="false" messageTemplate=""
              messageTemplateResourceType="Asurion.jCare.Common.Resources.UIResources.PerilTypeAndDetailsSection, Asurion.jCare.Common.Resources, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null"
              tag="" type="Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary.Validation.Validators.StringLengthValidator, Microsoft.Practices.Enterpris
