  1. Re: [Extension] Set control properties across threads

    I'm not sure so quickly what is happening but it seems like a rather complicated mess. My extensions were mainly used to access a simple property without having to worry about cross-thread issues,...
  2. Re: Shape Editor, including many shapes, Resize and more

    Rotation of shapes is not supported. You could however create a new shape that has a Rotation property, and draw your rotated rectangle accordingly inside the current bounds. That would require a...

    VS 2010 Re: Show NUD with Inches mark

    If you override the OnValidating method you can get a little closer. Check if the Text ends with the unit character in the OnValidating method, and if it does you trim it out. Now, if you tab out of...

    Re: [Ready] Visual Studio 2010 Menu/ToolStrip

    You set it when you want to change to happen. Most likely when your form loads: so in the Form_Loaded event for example.

    Re: [Ready] Visual Studio 2010 Menu/ToolStrip

    Probably this is enough:

    toolstrip.Renderer.RoundedEdges = False
    (where 'toolstrip' is your Vs2010ToolStripRenderer).

    Re: [Ready] Visual Studio 2010 Menu/ToolStrip

    For the squared off edges, you can probably simply set the RoundedEdges property of the Vs2010ToolStripRenderer to False. If that doesn't help, then I'm probably drawing those edges myself and you'd...
  7. Re: Line Control - Resizable/Movable at Runtime

    A line control would typically consist of just two control points. My shape editor is not flexible enough for that unfortunately, all its shapes have four control points on a rectangular boundary....
  8. [WPF] ListView losing GridView display when applying custom ItemContainerStyle

    Hi,

    I have a ListView with its View set to a GridView, with some GridViewColumns defined. Basically I want it to look like a normal ListView on windows 7.
    Unfortunately, even on windows 7...

    Re: [WIP] Double TrackBar

    I did not add vertical orientation. I was planning to do that but I didn't need it so it wasn't a priority. It shouldn't be too hard though, you'll basically have to take a look at the code that...
  10. Re: 100% Customizable MenuStrip / ToolStrip / StatusStrip, including common presets

    Well, if the normal ContextMenuStrip doesn't behave as you want either then the problem is not my CustomContextMenuStrip. Perhaps you'd be better off posting the problem in the regular forum where...
  11. Re: 100% Customizable MenuStrip / ToolStrip / StatusStrip, including common presets

    That's not really the normal way to show a contextmenustrip, usually you use assign it to the ContextMenuStrip property of the control you want it to show for, and it will show on a right-click.
    ...
  12. Re: 100% Customizable MenuStrip / ToolStrip / StatusStrip, including common presets

    I doubt it has something to do with my custom ContextMenuStrip, because all it does is set the Renderer property. Try replacing it with a regular ContextMenuStrip and see if that does the same thing?

    VS 2010 Struggling with jQuery in grid

    Hi,

    I have a grid in which the last column displays a (usually large) piece of text (a description of the item). What I'm trying to do is quite simple: instead of showing this large piece of text...
  14. Re: 100% Customizable MenuStrip / ToolStrip / StatusStrip, including common presets

    I'm not sure, if you drag an AppearanceControl to your form (in design-time) and then press the [...] button in the property grid for the CustomAppearance property, the editor as shown in the third...
  15. Re: 100% Customizable MenuStrip / ToolStrip / StatusStrip, including common presets

    So you are trying to use the frmAppearanceEditor form manually, for your own use? Why? That form is used by the AppearanceControl when you open the Custom appearance property, it shows the preview...
  16. Re: 100% Customizable MenuStrip / ToolStrip / StatusStrip, including common presets

    Most likely you don't have a reference to System.Drawing, which includes the System.Drawing.Drawing2D namespace in which the Color type exists. You mention a Class Library project which indeed by...
  17. VS 2010 Re: Registering custom / user controls problem

    Hmmm that might work... I'll try that.
  18. VS 2010 Re: Registering custom / user controls problem

    sapator: tried that, didn't work, same result.

    Gep: also tried LoadControl, same result again.

    It seems to be impossible :(

    The reason I want it like this is because BaseControl is a...
  19. VS 2010 Registering custom / user controls problem

    Hi,

    I have a WebUserControl, let's call it "BaseControl.ascx" that acts as a base control for a custom control (a class that inherits BaseControl). Inside BaseControl I have a couple of regular...

    I've been switching around the cables (swapped cables between HDD 1 and 2) and ports (swapped between 1 and 2), used new cables for HDD1 and HDD2, nothing helps, the same problem...
  21. Re: [Adobe PhotoShop CS5 Extended Version 12] - Transparent Color

    BMP doesn't support transparent colors. An application typically uses 1 color after which it turns every pixel of that color 'transparent'. Don't think that has anything to do with the image format...

  23. Installed new SSD - old HDD giving problems

    Hi,

    I have recently bought a SSD and installed it today. It works fine, but now it seems one of my other regular HDDs is giving me problems. Let me explain.

  25. Secure communication between app and webservice

    Hi,

    I am building an Android app that users can use to read (and maybe later post on) a forum for a particular website. Since the forum has no API to communicate with it whatsoever (it seems to be...
  26. VS 2010 Re: Webservice needs to return a large string

    Again, really useful... Thanks!! Is it just for WCF though or can I test the "regular" asmx file webservices too? I really don't have a clue what the difference is actually :/
  27. VS 2010 Re: Webservice needs to return a large string

    That seems really useful, thanks.
  28. VS 2010 Re: Webservice needs to return a large string

    Thanks, but I already tried that too.


    I just saw what I'm doing wrong... Seems stupid but it doesn't seem to be explained anywhere lol. I was trying to edit the web.config of the webservice....

    Hi,

    I am building a webservice that reads some HTML source code from a website and sends it back to the client. The service however is failing to send the data because it is too large. I keep...

  33. Re: The "What do you think of how my app looks" thread

    In my case it's quite simple. I just have (in a separate project) a Plugin abstract class with some properties that the inheritor has to implement, like the title of the window and a Content property...
  34. Re: The "What do you think of how my app looks" thread

    The colors are the same as in the sim, so people know what they mean. As for the font sizes, you typically won't care about the drivers that far away from you, only those close to you. That's why I...

    Here's my latest work, still a work in progress but I think it's coming along nicely :)

  36. Re: Move and Resize a Control or a Borderless Form - using window messages (smooth!)

    It doesn't need a panel, you can just as well call my MoveForm code in the MouseClick of the Form itself. A Panel is just a neat example because that's a typical way to mimic a titlebar (you usually...
  37. Re: Move and Resize a Control or a Borderless Form - using window messages (smooth!)

    It comes down to the same thing in the end. Why is it simpler? It's more code and harder to understand imo.
  38. Re: Custom VisualStudio2008 style MenuStrip and ToolStrip Renderer

    I have not done a Windows 7 theme in winforms. I have got a pretty decent one in WPF though. If you can use WPF then I could try to tidy it up a bit and post it.
  39. Re: Custom VisualStudio2008 style MenuStrip and ToolStrip Renderer

    I think you control the size via the size of the icons actually. I've done this several times but I can remember I'm always struggling with it, trying various things until it just suddenly becomes...
  40. Re: [.NET 2.0+] Visual Studios "My Project" Tab Control (Updated! 12/9/2009)

    JB, you can stop a property from being serialized to the designer by adding a function ShouldSerialize<property> and return false. The designer will look for this property (and assume true if it...
