DataPager Silverlight Control for Beginners

It was a long time when I have post on silverlight data grid control, at that time I was thinking of posting complete series of the post on the data grid control I have posted on the data grid grouping control but I didn't post on the paging of the data grid records. Now after long time I have time to see the silverlight and its paging control, I know there are lot of tutorial regarding data pager control But I have this for the absolute beginner who are just started their journey of the Silverlight.
For this example I have two controls added in my xaml are one is the data grid control and the second one is the data pager control.
You can see the code for the data grid control and the data pager control in the List 1, Here you can see that I have set the properties of the data grid control like auto generate columns to false mean I will set the columns for the data grid control, IsReadOnly is set to false mean this grid is used for the display of data and the vertical and horizontal grid line brush and GridLinesVisibility is set to All to show both the horizontal and vertical lines.

Full desired height of a RichTextBox control?

I don't mean the control's .Height property... ...I have a WinForm with a RichTextBox control, and another control underneath the RichTextBox control.  The RichTextBox control is anchored on the left, top, and right sides, so the width is automatically resized as the parent form is resized.  (it also has its Multiline and and WordWrap properties set to True) The item underneath the RichTextBox needs to always be right underneath it (little whitespace), and the RichTextBox needs to always display its entire text (nothing hidden). As I get the form's resize event, I'd like to update the RichTextBox's hight so all text is displayed, however I'm not seeing any properities or methods which would be helpful.  There is the PrefferredHeight property, but it is always returning 13. Basically, it comes dowen to this: when WordWrap is set to true, is there a way to see what the desired height is?  Or is there a way to see if any of the text is clipped? If not, I suppose my next step would be to roll my own custom control and draw the text myself, keeping track of the autowrap and line count, but I thought I'd post a message here first and see if anyone has a better idea. Thanks, Jeff

Reflection Effect For Beginners Using Silverlight 4

In this post I will show you how you can create the Reflection effect using the blend 4 in Silverlight application. It is really easy and nice to have the reflection effect in your application.Creating reflection and mirror effects is a little different than creating blur and shadow effects because these effects are not built into Silverlight. However, you can create reflection and mirror effects by using features present in Silverlight. Output of the this exercise will be as shown in the Image 1.

Silverlight user control, canvas "layout root", no key events ever.



I'm trying to use a UserControl in Silverlight and I want to handle some key events. The user control is a network diagram, laying out data points in a circle and showing the relations between points. It consists of a canvas to which various shapes (ellipses for data points, lines for relations between points). I'd like it to be focusable and receive mouse and keyboard events to add support for things like rotation, scaling, and randomizing the layout of data points (how readable the diagram is depends on the data and where in the circle related data points are located, but I'm not going to attempt any smart layout logic that figures out where to put the points; instead, I simply allow the points to be laid out in random order along the circle); I was thinking F5 (with it's "reload/refresh" connotations) would be a neat key for this.

Trouble is, I am never ever receiving any key events. Mouse events apparently do bubble up to the canvas, but only from labels - the data points have labels - so I can handle them there. Currently this allows me to resize and rotate the diagram by scrolling the mouse wheel (with the shift key down to rotate, without to scale) if and only if the mouse cursor is over a label. Not *quite* what I want!

After some quick googling I've attempted to set IsTabStop to true on the UserControl containing the Canva

ActiveX control replacement by silverlight technology



We developed an ActiveX plug-in for PowerPoint on Windows  The control allows content to be created in some graphical application, transferred to a PowerPoint presentation, and manipulated in 3D in PowerPoint in a view-only manner.  Graphical application is a scientific application which provides ability to create atoms, molecules, defining their bonding and defining surfaces, so user basically create molecules, proteins into the application and transfer it into ActiveX control using  copy-paste.

We want to shift this technology from ActiveX to other, so that it can be used by any software like Microsoft Word, SharePoint, Web browser, and Microsoft Excel.


Can someone tell me alternative of ActiveX? What other technologies can be used to develop same functionality in Microsoft domain? Any pointers indicating for Advantage and disadvantage of using ActiveX and other proposed technology?

I heard about Silverlight, but I do not know anything how it would be useful and how it is beneficial over ActiveX?

Wrapping Text (and not words) with the RichTextBox Control


Hi all,


What I am trying to do is create a RichTextBox control on my form. I want the RichTextBox control to only be able to contain 32 characters per line. I am using Courier New font, which is a fixed width font. I can set the width of the control so its long enough to show 32 characters, which works. The problem I am having is that after 32 characters, if I set the WordWrap property to true, it will wrap the last word. I do not want the last word to wrap. I simply want it to go to the next line. I do not want any carriage returns added to the code. I just, visually, want the control to jump to the next line, without wrapping any words. If I set WordWrap to false, then it doesn't wrap at all. it simply keeps going past 32 characters.


Does anyone know a way to make this control wrap text at 32 characters?

Selecting One Checkbox Control In DataGrid Control Using MVVM Using Silverlight

In this post I will show you how to select single check-box control when you have single check-box control in each row of the datagrid control. As you all know that check-box controls are normally used for the multiple selection and radio buttons are used for single selection. But there are sometimes requirement that control should be check-box and selection should be single. Mean if user view data in the datagrid control then he/she should only select one check-box at a time not more then one. Main page is shown in the Image 1. Here you can see that I have placed check-box control in the first column of the datagrid control which I have also highlighted.
