Change Text style of ListBox dynamically in ASP.NET

September 30, 2013 0 Comments

If you want to change text style of the Listbox control dynamically then you must use listbox property at runtime. such as

  ListBox1.Font.Size = 10;
Note : some property does not appear at runtime , those properties are:
overline,underline etc.


lets take an simple example:

<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="Default16.aspx.cs" Inherits="Default16" %>

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head runat="server">
    <title></title>
</head>
<body>
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
    <div>
        <asp:ListBox ID="ListBox1" runat="server" Font-Overline="True" Height="184px"
            Width="251px">
            <asp:ListItem>Apple </asp:ListItem>
            <asp:ListItem>Orange </asp:ListItem>
            <asp:ListItem>Mango</asp:ListItem>
            <asp:ListItem>Grapes</asp:ListItem>
        </asp:ListBox>
        <br />
        <br />
        <asp:Button ID="Button1" runat="server" onclick="Button1_Click"
            style="height: 26px" Text="Chnage text style" />
        <br />
    </div>

How to use Anchor property of control in windows form

September 29, 2013 0 Comments

Anchoring is one of the ways that WinForms provides for automatic layout control of your forms and the controls contained therein. By default, all controls are anchored to the upper-left, so that as the form is resized and moved, all controls are kept at their position relative to the upper-left corner of the form. However, in this case, we'd clearly like to have the text box controls widen or narrow as the form is resized. 

Without set right edge in anchor property

How to Make TextBox Control ReadOnly: WPF

September 29, 2013 , , , 0 Comments

In our previous post, we have enable the spell check feature of the textbox, through which user can check the spellings of the word entered and correct it. As we know that the textbox is used to input any value by the user, but it can be used to display fix text on the screen.

To display fix text that cannot be edited by the user, we have to make the textbox read-only. The textbox have a property IsReadOnly, that is set to be true to enable this feature. Just write the following XAML code snippet:
<TextBox Width="300" Height="25" Margin="5"
Text="This is the correct line and you cannot edit it."
 IsReadOnly="True">
</TextBox>
Now run the code and a textbox will display with the above text written. The thing to check is, this textbox have its fix text and the user can not vary that text.

How to make read-only textbox in WPF XAML

So the read-only property is used to make the textbox read-only for the users. We can validate the input entered by the user by writing some line of code in our code part. We will validate the input in our next article.

Difference between Application.Run() and form.showDialog() method in windows form

September 28, 2013 0 Comments

class program {
  static void Main() {
    Form form = new Form();
    form.ShowDialog();
  }
}

This code would show a blank form and wait for the user to close it before returning control to the Main function, but it's not the code you will generally be writing. Instead, to make it accessible in other parts of your application, you'll be designating one form as the main form. To do this, pass the main form as an argument to the Run method of the Application object, which also resides in the System.Windows.Forms namespace

class program {
  static void Main() {
    Form form = new Form();
    Application.Run(form);
  }
}

The Application class's static Run method will show the main form, and when it's closed, Run will return, letting our Main function exit and closing the process.

How to Enable Spell Check in TextBox: WPF

September 25, 2013 , , , 1 Comments

WPF Textbox control is used to input some value by the user at run time. Now it is not sure that the entered values are correct, it means user can write anything wrong in the textbox. So it is programmer’s job to check the value and correct it if wrong.

WPF textbox control provides a spell check functionality something same as MS Word. We have to use SpellCheck and Language property of the textbox. SpellCheck will enable the feature and language will decide the language in which spell check is to be performed.

<TextBox Width="300" Height="25" Margin="5"
Text="This si not teh correct line written by teh usre"
SpellCheck.IsEnabled="True" Language="En-Us">
</TextBox>

The code above will show a textbox with the given text. According to US English language, the textbox will place some red lines on the wrong words, as shown in the following image.

Enable SpellCheck in WPF Textbox Control


As in MS Word, when we right click on the wrong word, then it will show some help options in the context menu, as shown in the following image:

How to create user profile using Complex DataType in ASP.NET

September 25, 2013 0 Comments

User profile

A user profile is a collection of various properties that describes the information you want to store for a specific user. You can store the properties associated with a user in a user profile. The data that is stored in a profile can be accessed programmatically.
The profile feature in ASP.NET  allows you to define and store user-specific settings. In addition, a website can be more user friendly if it is customized according to the preferences of a user. For example, a shopping website displays the shopping cart that consists of the items that are frequently purchased by the user. To Induce such functionality, a website needs to retrieve and load the user’s data when the request for a Web page is made for the first time. After the request is completed, the current settings, such as the address and phone number of a user, must be stored on the server. Consequently, when  the same user request for the same Web page, the respective settings stored on the server corresponding to a user are retrieved.
The user’s profile is defined in the machine.config  or web.config file . The following Syntax of the web.config file contains the description of a user profile.
    <profile>
        <properties >
          <add name="Address" type ="string"/>
          <add name ="phone" type ="integer"/>
         
        </properties>      
       
       
      </profile>


The preceding syntax defines a profile by using properties in the web.config file. The <add> element defines the properties of a profile. The properties of a user profile consists of both simple data type and complex data types.

Lets take an Simple Example



Web.config file code

<system.web>
    <anonymousIdentification enabled ="true"/>
    <profile>
      <properties >
        <add name="name" type ="string" allowAnonymous ="true"/>
        <add name ="DOB" type ="dateofbirth" allowAnonymous ="true"/>

      </properties>



    </profile>
    <authentication mode="Forms" />
    <compilation debug="false" targetFramework="4.0" />

  </system.web>

Class File Code 

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Web;

/// <summary>
/// Summary description for dateofbirth
/// </summary>
public class dateofbirth
{ private string day;
        private string month;
        private string year;
        public string Day
        {
            get
            {
                return day;
            }
            set
            {
                day = value;

            }
        }
        public string Month
        {
            get
            {
                return month;
            }
            set
            {
                month = value;
            }
        }
        public string Year
        {
            get
            {
                return year;
            }
            set
            {
                year = value;
            }
        }
public dateofbirth()
{


}

}

Instance of class cann’t access member of the class within the class

September 25, 2013 0 Comments

“Clubing data member and member function known as class.”

lets take an Example
Class A
{
Data member;
Member function;
}

If we create instance of the class in other class, that instance cannot access member of the class

lets take an Example

Class B
{
A  obj=new A();
A.Datamember;  // Error  instance member cann’t access datamember within the class
}

Solution :
Every executable statementmust be in a definition block( inside a function , constructor)
Class B
{
A obj =new A();
Public B()
{
Obj.DataMember=value; // you can access the datamember

}

How to Use TextBox Control in WPF

September 24, 2013 , , , 0 Comments

The previous controls i.e. Label, TextBlock and etc. are used to display fix text in a window. Their text can be changed but through the programming, not by the user. Now to input some value by the user, or enable text editing, the text box control is used. The textbox control can contain only unformatted text in its text property.

<TextBox Width="200" Height=”25” Text="WPF Textbox control"></TextBox>

The above code will place a textbox control having width two hundred and above text in the textbox. The textbox is shown in the following image:

How to use Single line textbox in WPF XAML


In the above textbox only one line can be written, means we can’t either enter a new line in to the textbox or cant inset more lines by default. To enable multiline, it have two properties to do that i.e. TextWrapping and AcceptReturn. To insert a multiline textbox, write following code:

<TextBox Width="200" Height="40" Margin="5" Text="WPF Textbox control" TextWrapping="Wrap" AcceptsReturn="True"></TextBox>

Now when we run and write some more lines, then it will show something like this:

In the next post we will enable spell check for this textbox control.

HtmlSelect Class

The HtmlSelect class creates an HTML select control, which can display either a list box or a drop-down list box depending on its attribute. The items of the select control are stored in <option>elements inside the <select> element. As soon as you add a list box or drop-down list box to a Web form using HTML server controls, ASP.NET adds a default , empty <option> element to the <select> element. The HtmlSelect class gives you access to the HTML <select> element s in server code.

Properties of the HtmlSelect Class

DataMember  : Obtains or sets the set of data to bind to the HtmlSelect control from a DataSource with multiple sets of Data.
DataSource : Obtains or sets the source of information to bind to the HtmlSelect control.
DataSourceId : Obtains or sets the ID of the Data source control that the HtmlSelect control should use to retrieve its data source.
DataTextField : Obtains or sets the field from the data source to bind to the System.Web.UI.WebControls.ListItem.Text property of each item in the HtmlSelect control.
DataValueField : Obtains or sets the field from the data source to bind to the System.Web.UI.WebControls.ListItem.value property of each item in the HtmlSelect control.
InnerHtml : Obtains or sets the conect between the opening and closing tags of the control without automatically converting special characters to their equivalent HTMl entities.
Items : Obtains a collection that contains the item listed in an HtmlSelect control.
Multiple : Obtains or sets a value indicating whether multiple items can be selected concurrently in the HtmlSelect control.

How to pass value from one page to another page in ASP.NET

September 22, 2013 0 Comments

There are various techniques to pass values from one page to another page . These are Session, ViewState, QueryString, findControl , etc
Here we use one by one for passing values from one page to another page.

Use Session: 

Syntax : 
Session["Session variable"] = variable;
variable = Session["Session variable"].Tostring();

Note : Session value store in all page of browser.

Use QueryString 

Syntax : Basically query string pass in URL
http://dotprogramming.blogspot.com/default.aspx?id=7    // here id=7 define query string data

lets take an simple example
Step-1 : Take two Web forms (first.aspx and second.aspx)
Step-2 : first page contain one textbox , one button and one hyperlink control

<%@ Page Language="C#" %>

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

<script runat="server">

    protected void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        Session["username"] = TextBox1.Text;
    }
</script>

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head runat="server">
    <title></title>
</head>
<body>
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
    <div>
    Enter Session data :
        <asp:TextBox ID="TextBox1" runat="server"></asp:TextBox><br />
        <asp:Button ID="Button1" runat="server" Text="Store Session"
            onclick="Button1_Click" />
        <br />
        <asp:HyperLink ID="HyperLink1" runat="server" NavigateUrl ="~/second.aspx?id=7" >QueryString</asp:HyperLink>
        <br />
    </div>
    </form>
</body>
</html>

Step-3 : Second page contains two label control.

<%@ Page Language="C#" %>

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

<script runat="server">

    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        Label1.Text = "Session data " + Session["username"].ToString();
        Label2.Text = "query string data" + Page.Request.QueryString["id"].ToString();
    }
</script>

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head runat="server">
    <title></title>
</head>
<body>
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
    <div>
        <asp:Label ID="Label1" runat="server" Text=""></asp:Label><br />
        <asp:Label ID="Label2" runat="server" Text=""></asp:Label>

    </div>
    </form>
</body>
