--alright, the code below worked fine for a DirectX fullscreen app if I put ...SetForeGroundWindow(FindWindow("windowName"))...--
Hello all, I'm looking for a way to set the focus back to the last window that had it. For example I'm running a fullscreen app and I've got myForm always on top (topMost = true). But the window in the background shall have the focus back after I clicked once into myForm.
First, how do I figure out a windows' name? (Edit: not needed as I know the name) - If I put the windows' name I want to have the focus instead of "aspecificname" I get a runtime error as soon as the method is run.
The name of the window I want to have focus will always remain the same. Maybe somebody could help out,
I'm having some issues with reading an AD directory,
Each time i request the directory from AD i get the following catastrophic failure Later in the program i'm using a impersonation class.
When i disable this the code works otherwise it returns the catastrophic failure.
//string OU = "OU=Medewerkers,OU=Hogeschool Utrecht,DC=medewerkers,DC=ad,DC=hvu,DC=nl"; // AD LDAP medewerkers//dirEntry.AuthenticationType = AuthenticationTypes.Secure;string OU = "DC=medewerkers,DC=ad,DC=hvu,DC=nl"; // AD LDAP medewerkers
DirectoryEntry dirEntry = new DirectoryEntry("LDAP://" + OU);
DirectorySearcher dirSearcher = new DirectorySearcher(dirEntry);
dirSearcher.SearchScope = SearchScope.Subtree;
dirSearcher.Filter = "mail=" + user;// er wordt hier gefilterd op email adres
dirSearcher.PropertiesToLoad.Add("profilePath");// Reads AD profile and returns the profilePath i.e. \\mdw\dfs\profiles\benjamin.diepeveen
SearchResult sResult = dirSearcher.FindOne();// Returns catastrophic failure
This is my impersonation, when i disable this my code works but only for local users.
using (new Impersonator(txtGebruiker.Text, txtDomein.Text, txtPw.Text))
// this will attempt to change the directory to <directoryname>.old if you have proper acccessstring profile = GetProfilePath(txtProfiel.Text);
//Directory.Move(profile, profile + ".old");
txtLog.Text = "Profiel locatie\n" + profile + "is omgezet naar .old "; // displays the profile name in log
Any help / suggestions or hints on what i did wrong are
It is a little tough to read the code because it seems there is a big chunk missing. However, when I ran into this once before, the account that I was impersonating with had to have to ability to read the section of the Active Directory I was trying to get information from. In my case, I was originally trying to use a local service account, which won't work, because it does not have rights on AD. I had to create a service account in AD, give it read permissions (and deny lots of other stuff) then use it.
As I recall there are some API calls you can make to test if these protected calls are available to your application... basically testing if you have the proper rights. That might give you a graceful way to handle the situation.
As you suggested i'm going to start testing with a service account.
I've also created a function that now reads the Directory i'm requesting,
wich no longer results in the catastrophic failure,
Seems that was the problem tough now i get nullreference error.
But i'm moving in the right direction.
The impersanation does not work however, but i'm working on it.
I think this is not the right place to post this issue here. else, please help me to fix this issue
The issue is:
I'm using smtp4dev to send email alerts from TFS. I'm using Windows VIsta. In TFS administration Console->Email Alert Settings, I set SMTP server as localhost and Email from Address is my mail id. In Visual Studio 2010, Team->Project Alerts, I enabled "Anything is checked in" and gave another email id in Send to field. After my checkins, I didn't receive any email. smtp4Dev is visible in system tray.
In Event Viewer, I found the below Error,

I create a simply UDF of the article. In 32bit system, it is all right. In a 64bit, a simply function works only if I directly insert argument in the function. If I link the argument to a cell it doesn't work. Apparently it doesn't recognized that the number coming from excel cell (64bit) is a correct double for my function (which accept double)
Later note: really my Excel 2010 it is 32bit too.
So: the same project:
on windows xp, excel 2010 32bit, single processor works
on windows 7, excel 2010 32bit, 4 processors : excel udf works only if I directly use numbers in formulas, but it doesn't works if my UDF arguments refers to cells containing nmbers
it is more clear: from "Wolfgang"
I also used Eric's blog to create an automation add-in: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/eric_carter/archive/2004/12/01/writing-user-defined-functions-for-excel-in-net.aspx.
I created this Automation add-in with Office 2010, Visual Studio 2010 and .NET Framework 4.0 on Windows 7 (it should be the same configuration as Bessie's). But it does not work for me. I get #VALUE! as error. As soon as I replace the call "=MultiplyNTimes(B1,B2,C2)" with "=MultiplyNTimes(VALUE(B1),VALUE(B2),VALUE(C2))" it works.
I created this add-in with Office 2003, Visual Studio 2010 and .NET Framework 4.0 on Windows XP and it worked ("=MultiplyNTimes(B1,B2,C2)")
I'm working on an application of which requires me to have one list-box to hold data.
I'm having a little issue when deleting an object from a list-box. The issue comes into play when I fill the list-box with items from TWO separate lists.
Normally to delete the object I would get it's index and then remove it from the list in a separate class then reload the list-box to reflect the changes but in certain instances I need to fill the list-box with objects from two different lists and determining the origin of the object to delete from one of the two lists, well I'm not entirely sure how to do this.
this code is populating the list-box control.
//clear all items in the listbox
//create the lists
List listOfPickups = visits.listPickups();
List listOfdeliveries = visits.listDeliveries();
this is how i delete when i am only loading the listbox from one list.
if (ViewListBox.SelectedIndex < 0)
EditSelectBtn.Enabled = false;
DeleteSelectBtn.Enabled = false;
if (MessageBox.Show("are you sure you want to delete the selected item?", "Are You Sure?", MessageBoxButtons.YesNo) == DialogResult.Yes)
//clicked no so do nothing!
If the list box doesn't sort (so always displays the items from the first list first and items from the second list below that), the easiest solution would be to compare the index to delete with the size of the first list. If the index is too large, just subtract firstList.Count to get the index to remove from the second list.
I have a listView called lw1.
When I use lw1.selectedItem, I can check which item is selected.
But, how I can know which item is alone highlighted by mouse cursor?
in picture 1
gimppoi is selected with one click of mouse cursor
in picture 2
gimppoi is selected with one click of mouse cursor
poweooooooooo has alone mouse cursor over the line
