How to Design Better UI: Border Control in WPF

Whenever we use a control in our WPF window, it feels a simple look in our design view. Border control is used to draw a border around other control. Borders generally play an important role to generate a better UI for the application. It have some properties as other controls have like:

  • BorderBrush: used to specify color for the border.
  • BorderThickness: thickness of the border. By default it is zero.
  • CornerRadius: denote the degree to which the corner of border are rounded.
And many more common properties as WPF controls have like width, height, alignment properties, background, margin, padding and etc. Consider the following code
<Button Width="200" Height="30" Content="Button Without Border" Grid.Row="0"></Button>
<Border Width="200" Height="30" BorderThickness="2" BorderBrush="Aqua" Grid.Row="1" >
<Button Content="Button With Border"></Button>

The first button doesn’t have any border so it will be simple in our window. Look out the second button surrounded by a border control. This border control have some properties assigned in above code. As we can see that in the second button, we did not provide width and height because it has been provided in the border control.

Run the above code and check the two buttons written in the above code:

Design Better UI with Border Control in WPF

Designing a same button with the same border can be easily performed with the following code.
Border border = new Border();
border.Height = 30;
border.Width = 200;
border.BorderBrush = Brushes.Aqua;
border.BorderThickness = new Thickness(2);
border.Child = new Button() { Content = "Button With Border" };
this.Content = border;

This code is also as same as written in the above xaml code. Run this code and a single but same button will be placed in WPF window.

difference between structure and union in C Language

In c language article we will see the difference between union and structure. Both are the user define datatype in c language. See the table which is mentioned below: ASP.NET Video Tutorial Series Structure Union1.The keywordstruct is used to define a structure 1. The keyword union is used to define a union. 2. When a variable is associated with a structure, the compiler allocates the memory for each member. The size of structure is greater than or equal to the sum ofsizes of its members. The smaller members may end with unused slack bytes. 2. When a variable is associated with a union, thecompiler allocates thememory by considering the size of the largest memory. So, size of union is equal to the size of largest member. 3. Each member within a structure is assigned unique storage area of location. 3. Memory allocated is shared by individual members of union. 4. The address of each member will be in ascending order This indicates that memory for each member will start at different offset v…

Difference between Linear search and Binary Search in c language

SQL Video Channel : Download all SQL Video

Binary Search Linear Search Works only on sorted items. such as  1,2,3,4,5,6  etc
Works on sorted as well as unsorted items. 12,4,5,3,2,1 etc Very efficient if the items are sorted Very efficient if the items are less and present in the beginning of the list. such as Suppose your list items are : 12,3,4,5,1 and you want to search 12 number then you get beginning in the list. Works well with arrays and not on linked lists. Works with arrays and linked lists.
Number of comparisons are less More number of comparisons are required if the items are present in the later part of the array or its elements are more.

Memory representation of Linked List Data Structures in C Language

Memory representation of Linked List

             In memory the linked list is stored in scattered cells (locations).The memory for each node is allocated dynamically means as and when required. So the Linked List can increase as per the user wish and the size is not fixed, it can vary.

               Suppose first node of linked list is allocated with an address 1008. Its graphical representation looks like the figure shown below:

      Suppose next node is allocated at an address 506, so the list becomes,

  Suppose next node is allocated with an address with an address 10,s the list become,

The other way to represent the linked list is as shown below:

 In the above representation the data stored in the linked list is “INDIA”, the information part of each node contains one character. The external pointer root points to first node’s address 1005. The link part of the node containing information I contains 1007, the address of next node. The last node …
