I'm trying to learn ASP.NET 3.5 from a book using Visual Web Developer 2008 Express. I've come across a curiosity. The book had me create a Label control and wanted me to change some of the Font properties. I went to the Properties window and saw a heading for Font with a plus sign next to it. I click on the plus sign and the sub-properties for font appear. So far, so good.
When I did the next exercise in the book, it had me create a new Web page with another Label control, and it wanted me to change the Font property again. But, this time when I went to the Properties window, I did not see a Font heading with a plus sign. I simply saw all of the Font sub-properties.
I m using mobile label control on mobile web form now i want display backcolor property for label control.But when i run the application the label not showing the backcolor property. Is tr any other alternative or anything else.
Controls that inherit off of System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebControl have a property called Font. The type is System.Web.Ui.WebControls.FontInfo.
When working with these controls in the designer, it breaks out the Font property into multiple properties like Font-Bold, Font-Italic, etc. When working with these same WebControls in the codebehind, there's only a Font property (no Font-Bold, Font-Italic, etc).
How can this behavior be manually recreated when creating WebControls? Specifically, what combination of System.ComponentModel attributes can show/hide these properties in Intellisense?
Just upgraded from SSRS 2005 to 2008 (on a test server). I have a report with a list and in this list are about a dozen fields in textboxes whose fonts are all set to Verdana 8pt. When I run the report from the Report Manager, one of the 12 fields is displaying in a serif font (like Times New Roman) at around 12pt. When I preview the report in Visual Studio every field looks fine and when I run the same report in SSRS 2005 every field looks fine. Has to be a SSRS 2008 bug!
I have a label that I am adding dynamically and I would like it to be a custom Font (I know this font works in many browswers because its the default to our companies website).I want to change the font to "Palatino Linotype" but am unsure as to how this is possible. I thought it would be as simple as: Label1.Font = "Palatino Linotype"; however, this is not the case.
I have trie:
Font Palatino_Linotype = new Font("Palatino Linotype", 12); Label24.Font = Palatino_Linotype;
I get the error before compile:
Cannont implicitly convert type 'System.Drawing.Font' to 'System.Web.UI.WebControls.FontInfo'.
I have a problem with setting field height. The thing is, I have report section like this :
PO or SH is name of group and on the right, there are properties for group ("H", "101", "--" .. etc.).
As you might see that property label height and group label heights are not the same and it looks bad. What I want to do is : to set group label's height and property's height as the same. I am using Crystal Reports for Visual Studio 2008.
I have ajax accordion with 6 panes with an user control inside each of it. In the first pane I have a form view user control and have a modalpopup to display error message. The same method is used in all other panes.
On page load I was able to set the label text property and it properly shows in modal popup.
However whenever I do some validation and update label text property, the modal popup shows up but the label text property is not updated. It works in all other panes.
The only difference is the user control in the pane is inside of a update panel. If I remove the update panel every thing works fine. But I need the update panel to avoid full post back.
How do I set the label text property inside of a modal popup.
Im using LINQ2SQL and i have an object called Article. Its has 2 properties FinishText and SwedishText. The idea is to let the user choose language. Swedish is default.
I bind the objects to a listView and there is a label that takes the swedish language. When the user presses the Finish flag button i want the objects to reload and the finish text to show instead of the swedish. The problem is that the text label is bound to the SwedishText property in the mark up like this:
I can think of some ways to solve this, and i have one that doesnt work that well. My question is, what would be a good way to solve this? Im not so experienced so i know that there are lots of you out there that know how to do this much better.
Another problem i dont like my solution to is when i have an object that has a association with my Article object, like ArticleCategory. The ArticleCategoryId of my Article is, lets say 31, which is corresponds to the category "Movies". I dont want to display the category id but rather the name of the category itself (Movies).
So this is what i do: <%#GetCategoryNameFromId(DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "Article_Id"))%>
I call a method that recreates the artice object and from there creates the ArticleCategory and gets the name from it. Its a horrible solution cause it involves lots of trips to the Database. Especially since i do similar things with other properties.
Just wanted to hear what is a proper and good way to deal with these common but for me new tasks.
I have a TreeView control, that for reasons of performance (it takes a LONG time to do all the database queries to build it) is being cached. The data and treeView control seem to cache just fine, EXCEPT for the RootNodeStyle.Font.Bold property. On initial page-load (when it's cached), the root nodes come out bold. However, when retrieving the TreeView control from cache, the root nodes are NOT bold (even though reading that property shows TRUE).
Here's some code:
The first time this code is called (i.e., when the cache is not hit and the TreeView control is populated, the resulting TreeView has its root nodes in a bold font. However, when the cache is hit, the root nodes are NOT bold (the RootNodeSTyle.Font.Bold property is True, but the output HTML is not bold).
