If i want to reproduce the functionality found in many microsoft apps, such as the windows on the bottom of vs7, that allow one splitter between two panels, to resize each panel as you move it left and right, how would i do that. I know that i can dock one, and fill the other, and have the splitter eat one of the panels area as you move the splitter, but what if you want both of the panels seperated by the splitter to resize so you dont crop any information?
It's all about the order that the controls are added to your form. Add a Panel, dock it to the left (for example), then add a Splitter (default is to dock left), then add your final Panel with dock fill. In code, it would look like this:
I could be wrong Heath, that that order produces the exact effect the original poster is trying to avoid. Attaching the (Dock=Fill) panel last, places it on the top of the Z-order - and therefore, it ignores the boundary set by the splitter.
For me, to get both panels to completely show up - resized, the first attached panel must be (Dock=Fill), and then the splitter and second panel must be (Dock=Left).
The (Dock=Fill) panel is attached first, and then pushed over by the attached, higher Z-order (Dock=Left) splitter, which is then pushed over again by the finally attached higher z-order (Dock=Left) panel.
If attached to a simple Form, the first panel (Dock=Fill) then shows up on the right, the splitter to its left, and the final panel shows up along the left edge of the form.
Both panels are completely visible and completely resizable.
Actually, panel1 in my snippet represents that far-left panel and panel2 the far-right. I numbered them accordingly to the original post's description, so what I typed and intended is exactly what you're saying now.
I, for one, do not think the problem was that the band was down. I think that the problem may have been that there was a Stonehenge monument on the stage that was in danger of being crushed by a dwarf.
I have a ListView control in which I'm loading a Progress bar as one of the sub items. Everything seems to be working except I'm having an issue when the column width is resized. Can anyone suggest the correct event to override to resize my ProgressBar when the Column width is changed ? Also is it possible to block the column width dragging ability in ListViews ?
You can block the resizing by overriding WndProc and handling the LVM_SETCOLUMNWIDTH message. If the Message.WParam cast to an int is the number of the column, don't pass the message on to base.WndProc. This should work. You should also be able to use this approach to get the new size of the control using some fancy state checking (allowing the column to be resized if desired) and setting the ProgressBar.Width property to the column width.
Is there any way so that all the below conditions give me true results.
String val = “Hello”
Now comparing val it with the following code.
1 “Hello “ //Note white space at the end of Hello.
2 “ Hello” //Note white space at the beginning of Hello.
3 “Hello “ //Note two white spaces left at the end.
4 “ Hello “ //Note white space both at thebegining and end of Hello.
5 “hello” //Note the caps change.
6 “HEllo” //Note the caps change.
7 "HeLLo " //Note one white space at the beggin and two at the end and also with caps change.
String.Trim is good to use, but as I told him before (no one listens), he should use String.Compare. This optionally takes case-sensitivety into account, as well as specific CultureInfo, which is necessary to use when worrying about globalized applitions. If you're not globalizing anything (and are 100% sure you never will), using what you wrote would work. Of course, to say that something in this field is 100% absolute will most likely lead to a hole in one's foot!
That's the worst possible idea - it's too expensive to compile and run and doesn't take culture into account. String.Compare does. All he needs to do is trim the string (String.Trim) and then use String.Compare.
Could someone please point me in the right direction.
I have an windows application that I am writting for the schools bookstore. They wish the application to start when Windows starts up (IE: like McAffe would). I have searched through the articles here and on google and found nothing on this. Although to be fair it may be my not entering the right search string.
If any one could point me in the right direction I would appreciate it.
The registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run is one place to do this. Placing an app in the Startup folder would also do it.
But you know when the truth is told,
That you can get what you want or you can just get old,
Your're going to kick off before you even get halfway through.

What do you think that Start->Programs->Startup folder is for? Just put a shortcut to your application in there, or add a registry key to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run to start it for the current user of the system (each user has their own person hive), or use HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run for all users of the machine. Be careful using the registry editor (regedit.exe) because anything you screw up could have disasterous results to applications or all of Windows.
Thank you for your help. As a student finishing up his degree and carrying 18 hours in his final semester it is useful to have a board like this to help out when you have a brain freeze.
Of course it would be more helpful if some people didn't go so far out of their way to stroke their own ego by making others feel stupid (IE: What do you think....is fo?), when they ask a simple question. But I guess it was my own fault for asking a question.
If you want the app to run when a user logs in then the suggestions already provided are the best way to do it.
If you want the program to start on startup regardless of whether or not a user is logged in then you need to install the program as a windows service. There was a great article on how to do this on osnews just the other day. Below is a link
