WPF Listview items with images

WPF ListView is a container of other single controls. I mean to say that you can put other single control in it. Other controls considered as a Listview item. You can put only simple single string or control like TextBlock. Lets to check the demo of this line.

1: <ListView> 2: <ListViewItem> 3: <TextBlock Text="Fruits"/> 4: </ListViewItem> 5: <ListViewItem> 6: Vegetables 7: </ListViewItem> 8: </ListView>

WPF Listview binding with Gridview cell template using EDMX file

Good evening, welcome to WPF programming. I already explained, how to bind WPF listview from string type list also explained binding it with database table using EDMX file. In this article, I will give you an example of cell template of Gridview, which is inside in WPF Listview. You can say, I will update previous WPF listview article. If you want to customize your Gridview cell in WPF Listview control then use cell template.

Note: Before doing this task, read previous
You need to change only XAML file without any changes in code behind code. The previous XAML code is:
<Grid> <ListView Name="listgrid"> <ListView.View>  <GridView> <GridViewColumn Header="Id" DisplayMemberBinding="{Binding Id}"/> <GridViewColumn Header="Name" DisplayMemberBinding="{Binding Emp_Name}"/> </GridView> </ListView.View> </ListView> </Grid>

If you want to set this property during compile time, must add attribute inside the tag. Like

<asp:FileUpload ID="FileUpload1" runat="server" Enabled="False" />
    true is the default value for this. Now take a simple example to change the value at run time. Source code
<form id="form1" runat="server"> <div> <asp:FileUpload ID="FileUpload1" runat="server" Enabled="False" /> <br /> <br /> <asp:Button ID="Button1" runat="server" Text="Enable/…

Default Listing with Insert and Update in MVC 4

MVC 4 provides simple listing procedure through which developer can create CRUD actions for a database table. Awesome thing is developer don’t need to write a single line of code and will complete the task. We have added new table Category and updated edmx file in earlier article. Now we will create CRUD actions and their views with default MVC 4 structure. We have created empty controller without using any default action but now we will add a controller with all the default actions. Follow the procedure for creating a controller and in “Add Controller” window name the controller as CategoryController and select the options as selected in the following screenshot and click on Add button:
This window is prompting for your context class (inherited from DbContext or may be your edmx entities name) file and the model name for which these actions will be created. After clicking on Add button, it will add a controller with following 5 actions and corresponding views. Those views are not cre…


In previous WPF listview article, I explained, how to bind listview from List of string type. In this article, I will explain you, how to bind listview using EDMX file. We all know about powerful features of  WPF listview i.e Gridview. Lets, take an example of it.

In the mentioned code, Gridview is a view of WPF Listview with two columns that are Id and name. Here, DisplayMemberBinding is the property of GridviewColumn, which is used to bind listview columns from field of model class.

Introduction First of all, I would like to thank all of the readers who have read my previous articles. What a great support I have got from you people. By using ASP.NET File upload control, we can easily insert images into Table or you can say that we can create image gallery projects.

Update Edmx When Database Changes in MVC 4

MVC 4: Update Edmx is to make the model as same as the database through which it created. Whatever changes made with the database will not reflect in the Model to perform CURD functions. Suppose we have added a new table with SQL server management studio and want to insert/update some entries with that table using code part. After creating object of database context, notice that we don’t have an instance for that newly added table. To resolve this issue we have to update our edmx using Update Model Wizard as described in this article.

Create new table Category in the same database added earlier and use basic columns like id, name, description, isActive. Open our visual studio project and check that this table have not any existence yet. Open edmx file, right click on the blank space and click on Update Model from Database.

  An Update Model wizard will open with options to add tables, views and stored procedures. We have added only a table so expand “Tables” node and select “Categorie…

wpf listview bind with list of string type

As we all know the wpf listview is inherited class of listbox and have almost all the properties of listbox. We have learnt listbox binding with string list in our earlier post. In this article we bind the listview with the same string list.

Just place a wpf listview having only name property, because we have to access that wpf listview in our code behind file. We can also use height and width property of the listview, if the data items are of lengthy string.
Now use the same list of string as in previous post i.e.
List<string> strList = new List<string>();
listView.ItemsSource = strList;
Now look out the last statement, it will set the item source of the wpf listview as this string list. When we run the project it will show a listview with four items:
