How to implement Design-Time drag & drop from Custom Visual Studio Tool Window to WPF Designer

Hi, Could someone tell me if it is possible to intercept a design time drop event coming from a custom Visual Studio tool window onto the cider design surface? I am hoping to use the same API's as those used by the Visual Studio 2010 'Data Sources' tool window, which provides drag & drop data-binding between classes and WPF/Silverlight controls. My requirement is to pass a DataObject (used with the WPF DragDrop API) from my custom Visual Studio WPF tool window treeview to my custom WPF control at design time, read the data and do some binding/XAML manipulation of my own. The drag aspect is simple enough but I can't work out how to accept a drop event from anything other than the toolbox. At the moment, when I drag my treenode over the design surface it shows the 'cannot drop here' cursor. If someone could give me some insight into how the 'Data Sources' tool window allows dragging of treenodes to controls I would really appreciate it. It is obviously possible but which API's are used and are they public? Thanks in advance, Paul  

Drag and drop activity onto If Condition



I am trying to create a new IfElse activity in a rehosted workflow environment.  I'd like to make it so that the user can drag and drop an activity onto the Condition part of the IfElse.  One thing I was thinking about was making my custom activities have an Out argument, which is either true or false, and then bind that to the condition.  I'm not sure at all how to do this, as I just started using WF4 last week.  Can anyone guide me through this?  


Thank you,

Workflow Services: Visual Design of Workflows with WCF and WF 4


The .NET Framework 4 makes it easier than ever to implement WCF services using WF. We'll demonstrate just how easy it is by modeling a long-running, durable and instrumented workflow based on a real-world business case without having to write any code.

Foundations: Windows Workflow Design Patterns


Design patterns provide a common, repeatable approach to solving software development tasks, and many different patterns can describe how to accomplish a certain goal in code. When developers begin working with Windows Workflow Foundation (WF), they often ask about how to accomplish common tasks with the technology. This month's column discusses several design patterns used in WF.

ASP.NET: Web Forms Let You Drag And Drop Your Way To Powerful Web Apps


Web Forms have the potential to change Web programming by introducing a new programming model built around server-side controls-a model in which controls render their own UIs by generating HTML to return to clients and firing events that are handled by server-side scripts. Since all the action takes place on the Web server, virtually any browser can run a Web Forms app. And thanks to Visual Studio .NET, building a Web Forms app is a lot like using Visual Basic: just drop a control onto a form then write an event handler. This article describes the Web Forms programming model, how it fits with ASP.NET, and introduces DataGrid, TextBox, and other classes in the .NET Framework class library.

Scott Howlett and Jeff Dunmall: Drag and Drop Data Manipulation Powered by XML


Building on the browser-based org chart featuring VML (Vector Markup Language) described previously in Microsoft Internet Developer, this article takes you through the process of refining that sample app by using XML, XSL, and JScript code to create a new, improved version. Drag and drop editing is added to the org chart interface thanks to built-in support found in Internet Explorer 5.0. XML and JScript allow data manipulated on the screen to be saved back to the server in its native format. The final product of this combination of XML, XSL, and VML is a high performance, scalable Internet app that uses processing on the client to reduce stress for the server.

How to use a drop down list to edit in the standard Edit.aspx with DD?


Hey All,

I'm brand new to Dynamic Data and to ASP.NET.  I've been able to fumble around and get the calendar extender up and running and a few other customization options implemented, but I can't seem to get this drop down list to work - even after reading tons of online info.  The good news is that my web page/application is VERY simple, so hopefully you guys can help me out.  I'm working in VB btw.

I have a list of road projects submitted to me by local governments.  One of the fields is SponsoringAgency, which has a limited number of possible entries (the names of member governments).  Thus, when they submit a new project, or edit an existing one, I want to limit the input into the field "SponsoringAgency." I'm trying to use a dropdownlist because I'm familiar with it from Access, but it may not be the best approach.  Imagine you just setup a brand new, standard DD website, how would you get this to work?

Methods tried and failed (probably because I don't understand them fully):

UIHint - The closest I can get with this is an error saying that since SponsoringAgency isn't a Foreign Key, I'm out of luck.

Creating a SponsoringAgency Table - In my data layer, I created a second table with a list of government names.  I then tried se

Change the Workflow Status through code


HI Folks,

I have a scenario where i need to develop a 6 stage approval workflow(sequential) using WWF and depoly it to sharepoint. Everythigns fine till here.

Now we look ahead to change the Status field on the documents library which actually has the Workflow Name as the column name and its value being In Progress, depending on the stage of approval. Like(Approved 1, Approved 2, Approved 3.)

And if rejected the status should be rejected than Completed. Any idea how can we update this column of the List item.

I have tried item[workflowProperties.Workflow.ParentAssociation.Name]="Approved 1";

But this throws an error saying input string is not in a correct format.

Any information would be of great help :)

How to Cancel a Workflow Activity - LogToHistoryListActivity


How can I cancel a LogToHistoryListActivity? I don't understand how to get access to the ActivityExecutionContext. I guess one way is to add an IfElse before entry to avoid the activity completely. Casting the sender object does not work. Help anyone?

  private void logToHistoryListActivity_WorkflowActivated_MethodInvoking(object sender, EventArgs e)
   LogToHistoryListActivity log = (LogToHistoryListActivity)sender;
   string msg = string.Format("Work Request has been SAVED by {0}. Awaiting submittal.", workflowProperties.Originator);
   WFHelper.LogMessageToHistoryList(log, msg, null);

Listview - Drag and Drop?


Hey everyone, I have a treeview and a listview on my ASP.NET application. However, with treeview I can drag and drop it to where ever I want it on my page. I tried this with listview, but it wouldn't let me. Listview automatically positions itself along the left side of my application. What I'm wanting to do is put my treeview along the right side and then put my treeview along the left side of the application. Any ideas on why I can't do this or suggestions on how I might be able to do this?

By the way, I'm running Visual Studio 2010 and using .NET FRAMEWORK 4.

Drag and Drop data binding and Enums

I'm using Visual Studio 2010 to design a simple WPF application. I created a simple class, with some Enum property, and added the class as a new data source, then dragged and dropped it from the Data sources window as a DataGrid. The result is a data grid that works properly, except for enum handling. Obviously, I want enums to be displayed as combo boxes, so I set the option. The problem is: I get a combo box column, but it is NOT populated with the Enum's values, instead only the current value is displayed and the user can't change it. This behavior seems completely useless to me. Am I doing something wrong here, or is there another explanation for this? Why isn't the designer handling enums in a sensible way? Another problem is, if I choose to drag the class as "Details". Again everything works except enums. I get a standalone combobox, but it displays the values of the property from the entire list, and choosing a different item in the combobox changes the active bound property. Once again, useless behavior - I expect the designer to create a combobox populated with values from the Enum, and for it to act like every other control in a master-details relationship - choosing a different value changes the state of the current item. Please advise.
