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

    I hate to resurrect an old thread, but I've started fooling with this code again. Pertaining to moving a control within a form, I've noticed that the cursor cannot be moved outside of the client...

    That worked great! Thanks!
  3. VS 2010 [RESOLVED] Storing Custom Classes in My.Settings

    According to this and this it should be possible to create custom classes and store them in My.Settings.

    I tried doing what those articles recommended, but I can't get the most basic custom class...

    VS 2010 Re: Custom controls not showing up in toolbox

    Was this issue ever resolved?
  5. Re: Move and Resize a Control or a Borderless Form - using window messages (smooth!)

    I was afraid of that. I'll do some more research and see if I can mix and match higher level .NET "bounds" checks with your API calls. I'll get back to you sometime in the coming week.
  6. VS 2008 Re: Child Control Anchoring and Padding Problem

    The following steps are done within the Designer.

    Start with a blank Form or an empty Panel. (I think any container control might yield the same results.)
    Add a Label and a Button to the...
  7. VS 2008 Child Control Anchoring and Padding Problem

    Hello,

    I've searched in these forums and online, and returned zero results. I'm curious to know if anyone else has experience this problem.

    If you have a Control contained within another...
  8. Re: Move and Resize a Control or a Borderless Form - using window messages (smooth!)

    This code is great! It is so much smoother than trying to resize things through code! I have two questions though:

    1. Is it possible to get the MoveControl to consistently resize when the...
  9. Re: 100% Customizable MenuStrip / ToolStrip / StatusStrip, including common presets

    Well I feel silly. When I changed the MenuStrip from standard to customizable, the MainMenuStrip property of the Parent Form was set to nothing. Setting this property to the CustomizableMenuStrip...
  10. Re: 100% Customizable MenuStrip / ToolStrip / StatusStrip, including common presets

    I know I shouldn't post questions in existing threads, but this only applies to the Customizable Strips code.

    The problem I'm having pertains to using Customizable Strips and MDI forms. My...
  11. Re: 100% Customizable MenuStrip / ToolStrip / StatusStrip, including common presets

    Agreed! I added them manually a couple of times and then started using the controls library method, and it is a whole lot better!
  12. Re: 100% Customizable MenuStrip / ToolStrip / StatusStrip, including common presets

    I've had those errors too. The name of the solution that NickThissen used to create the Customizable Strips was named "CustomizableStrips", so when you added them to your project, they are...
  13. Re: 100% Customizable MenuStrip / ToolStrip / StatusStrip, including common presets

    I don't have the code on this computer, but I know I didn't change the scope of the OnAppearanceChanged method. Also, I tried using Me.Invalidate within the Set method of the RoundedEdges property. ...
  14. Re: 100% Customizable MenuStrip / ToolStrip / StatusStrip, including common presets

    I've probably said this before, but this is great!

    Also, it's really minimal, but when you have a CustomizableToolStrip and you change the RoundedEdges property in the designer, it doesn't update....

  16. VS 2008 Re: Starting an EXE from within a VB.NET program

    Is it required that the executable reside within the application's startup directory? Otherwise I don't see any difference between your code and mine.

    VS 2008 Re: How to implement the IBindingListView

    I tried that example, and unless I'm missing something (which is certainly possible), the first method doesn't use the IBindingListView interface, it uses delegates. The other example has the line...

  21. VS 2008 Re: Binary Serialization and Custom Collections

    I wish I could remember where I read that I needed to do that. Clearly, I don't need to, so I'll make a copy of my project and remove all of the ISerializable interfaces and see what happens...let...
  22. VS 2008 Re: Binary Serialization and Custom Collections

    Okay, I've finally figured out how to deserialize my custom collection. I don't know if this is how it's supposed to be done, but it works. Here is the code:

  23. VS 2008 Re: Binary Serialization and Custom Collections

    I have found that this only works for serializing the default types/classes. From my experience, if you want to serialize a custom type or class, you're forced to dive into implementing the...
  24. VS 2008 Re: Binary Serialization and Custom Collections

    Yes, forget I mentioned calling the New() method. However, I don't understand what you're trying to explain. The tutorials I've read about using binary serialization of custom classes required...
  25. VS 2008 Re: Binary Serialization and Custom Collections

    Good question. Yes, it is serializable. Before I implemented the custom collection class, I was using a generic List(Of FGSData), and the serialization for FGSData was working fine.

    Also, to be...
  26. VS 2008 Binary Serialization and Custom Collections

  27. VS 2008 [RESOLVED] Updating Parent/Child FK Constraints using OleDb and Access

    VS 2008 Re: BindingSource.Filter String

    I don't think I'm understanding your response. I don't see how that will filter the rows in a bindingsource, so that my datagridview will only show the rows in the filter result set.
