Group Items using Group Box Control: WPF

We are using individual items all the time in our programming, doesn’t matter which programming it is. But sometimes we have to use grouping of items, so that they cannot move on their position with the resizing of the container.

For an example we cannot use two individual radio button controls to show genders on the form. Actually we can, but when we resizing the container, they may move on (from their position) a little bit. That’s why we use a group box control to place them together with a header.

Group box control is used to create a container that has some child controls and a border around them. The following code snippet (in XAML) is used to create a group box having two radio button for male and female.
<GroupBox Header="Gender">
<RadioButton Content="Male"/>
<RadioButton Content="FeMale"/>

Now the question is, why we used stack panel above. The answer is, a group box can contain only one item either it is a single item like label, textbox, radio button or it can be a container like stack panel or grid view. The image shows the output for the above code snippet

Grouping of items using GroupBox control in WPF

Here I used only two items in a group box, you can use as you want through a container. The group box can also be created using code in c# language like:
GroupBox grpBox = new GroupBox();
grpBox.Header = "Gender";

StackPanel stackPanel = new StackPanel();
stackPanel.Children.Add(new RadioButton() { Content = "Male" });
stackPanel.Children.Add(new RadioButton() { Content = "FeMale" });
grpBox.Content = stackPanel;

this.Content = grpBox;

The above code will create the same group box with two radio button in it.

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 …
