Bind ComboBox Control With Grid Resource: WPF

In my previous post, I have wrote about the combo box control and add some string items. In this article I will add a grid source and then bind that source to combo box control with some easy steps.

By default a grid is placed in the XAML code file of a window. Just add the below code in the grid snippet:
<Grid.Resources>          
<x:ArrayExtension Type="{ x:Type sys:String}" x:Key="cmbPlacesSource">
<sys:String>London</sys:String>
<sys:String>Italy</sys:String>
<sys:String>California</sys:String>
<sys:String>France</sys:String>
</x:ArrayExtension>
</Grid.Resources>

The above code is defining an array extension which will be used as a source of the combo box. Now add a combo box and it should be look like the following code:
<ComboBox Name="cmbPlaces" Height="30" Width="100"
 Text="Select Places-"
 IsEditable="True"
 ItemsSource="{StaticResource cmbPlacesSource}">
</ComboBox>
Here in the above code, it doesn’t matter of height and width, you can provide these as you want. The must thing is ItemsSource of the combobox. As you are looking the code it is the same name of the above array extension. It will show all the data defined in the above source i.e. as in following image:

ComboBox binding with Grid Resource in WPF

In above image by default "Select Places-" is shown, which can be set by the text property with IsEditable property to true. In the selection changed event of combo box, we can get the selected value by using the following code:
private void cmbBox_SelectionChanged(object sender, SelectionChangedEventArgs e)
{
string selectedValue = cmbPlaces.Text;
MessageBox.Show(selectedValue);
}

Each time when the selection index will change, it will show a message box with the selected text. So we can easily get the selected text of the combo box.

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 …
