How to Bind ListBox with XAML Grid Resource: WPF

In the previous article, we have learnt about the listbox and some of the properties of listbox. Resources provide a way to reuse the objects and values by other controllers in the code. As we created a grid resource in the combobox binding, that resource can be used here easily.

Just review the grid resource written as below, where type indicates the type of values defined in it, and the key name will be used to bind other control through it.
<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>

Now add a listbox and use its itemsSource property. This property is used to get or set a collection used to generate the content of itemscontrol.
<ListBox Name=”listBox” Width="200"
ItemsSource="{StaticResource cmbPlacesSource}">
</ListBox>

This will show the above items in this listbox as shown in following diagram.

As the items increases or height decreases, this control will use scroller to view the extra items. Let me set height of above listbox to 30 and lookout the output.

Listbox binding with grid resource plus scrolling: WPF

We can get the selected item’s value from the selection changed event of this control. Write the following code in selection Changed event of listbox
private void listBox_SelectionChanged(object sender, SelectionChangedEventArgs e)
{
string selectedValue = listBox.SelectedItem.ToString();
MessageBox.Show(selectedValue);
}

It will show a message, containing the selected item, each time when the selection changed of the listbox control.

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 …
