I have a couple of labels in the header of my master page. One of these displays the game-server that the user is currently connected to (the website controls the gameserver). The name of the gameservers can be longer than the room I gave them in the header. When this happens, the text wraps around (this is good!), and any elements underneath this label shift down (this is wrong!). Here is how it looks when not connected, so that the labels that show the name and IP of the server are hidden: After connecting, the labels are shown but the text is slightly too large and wraps around, causing the two links underneath to shift. The header becomes larger than it should be and a blank strip results (where the header background image stops):
The relevant ASPX code:
The relevant CSS is this (it's a bit of a mess, .):
When the server name is longer than the 'server' div (basically the black box) I want it to wrap around (otherwise most servers wouldn't fit). But if the server name is REALLY long it might wrap around 3 of 4 times in which case there would be no room for the links underneath... Can i possibly limit the amount of wrapping so that it only wraps once? When it is longer still it should just cut off (or display some ellipsis " ..." if that's possible), or even just spill into the rest of the header (rather not..)
In each case, when the label does wrap, how do I stop the other elements underneath from being pushed down? The two links should remain on the same spot really, they shouldn't move down when the label turns out larger. I hope I'm making myself clear. I'm really a CSS noob, the CSS I have now is mostly hacked together from various sources and I just kept trying until I got something that I liked...
I have a .net 3.5 web form with an ajax combo box and a text box inside it. The bombo box is bound to a SqlDataSource.
My requirement is to show/hide the text box depending on the text of the selected item in the combo box. If a particular string, say 'xyz', appears in the text of the selected item, the I will make the text box invisible. I enabled the AutoPostback, made the text box disappear in the SelectedIndexChanged event, and everything worked fine.
However, when users enter their own texts (which are not in the list items), I am unable to show / hide the text box. I've tried the TextChanged event but nothing happens. It seems the event is not trigger after I enter a new text and locate the focus to other place.
is there a way to prevent the user ented text from being inserted into the bombo box?
I would like to display data horizontally - with wrapping.. Is there some asp.net control that can do this??! I know how to do this using a plain table.. Guess I'm just feeling lazy, or wanting an easier alternative..
I want label to set its width automatically. For example, 8 lines beside image with 400px of width and other lines on top and bottom of image, with 800px of width. In fact something like Microsoft word text wrapping-square mode.
I need to display the contents of a file selected from a ListBox into a text box. When I populate the ListBoxItems, I set the Text property to the name of the file and its full path to the Value property.
When I click the item, the page refreshes because AutoPostBack is on, but nothing happens. I then tried this:
VB.NET Code: Protected Sub lbLogs_SelectedIndexChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs) Handles lbLogs.SelectedIndexChanged Me.txtServiceTag.Text = Me.lbLogs.SelectedItem.TextEnd Sub
I wonder if this is either a bug or a setting I could potentially change.
I uploaded a YouTube video of the behavior since it's easier to see: [URL]
I've got a Multiview control with a View (call it view1) inside it. When I type text into view1 within the Design view of Visual Studio 2010, if the text reaches the end of the visible line it does not wrap to the next line as expected (like a div or p tag would do outside the multiview control). Instead, it extends the multiview horizonally and the horizonal scrollbar appears.
Can I provide a Combobox that will EITHER let a user type in a value OR let them select from the dropdown? I am trying to create a scenario where a user can attach a value to an object they are editing. When attaching that value, I want them to be able to type in a completely new value or, select from a list of already-existing values.
When I create the combo box, I add a list item that has text like "Type a value or pick from the list"...this has an index of 0. Then I append the databound values to the list.
A combo box seems like the perfect solution since it combines a text box with a drop down list but, I can not figure out how to retrieve the text that has been typed into the combobox once the form is submitted. cmbMyComboBox.text seems to be the obvious way to do it but, that returns an empty string. If I try to get the SelectedItem.Text then, I get "Type a value or pick from the list" instead of whatever text I typed into the combobox, once it was displayed.
Am I trying to do something that the ComboBox is not meant to do? How can I accomplish this?
I have decided to abandon trying to use the combo box. I am trying to use a dropdown menu in one column, and text boxes in all the others. But, I am having a strange problem with that as well. I will post those problems in the appropriate forum. I marked this post as "No Status" because I didn't see any way to delete it.
I have an Ajax Toolkit combo box in DropDownStyle Mode. The DropDownStyle should prevent the user from entering values that are not in the list of items of the combo box. The problem is, if the user paste some text (right-click --> past OR ctr + V) in the combo box, it will work, event if the pasted text is not the list of items. Is there a way I can prevent this?

i'm using 4 combo boxes for displaying latitude details.the latitude details are degree,minutes,seconds and north/south.when i select the city in combo box the latitude details from sql server (for that city) should be displayed.
I am using the combo box for my project and I am having some odd behaviour from combobox...
i am using this combobox inside a formview control...once i click on combobox it is showing the list items at the bottom of formview not next to combobox control...I think it is taking the top and left values from formview offset.

I have a grid control which is bound to a DataTable. Iam facing problem in the display of data. Though each line in DataColumn of grid having enough space yet the data is being wrapped to next subsequent lines. But I need the data to be displayed without wrapping.
I have done some research on creating a chat room for my website. i found one on the following site: [URL] But it is in C#, i tried converting it to VB version but it gives me different errors. I dont know much about it.
Just looking for recommendations, we have a need to supply a chat-room for our customers. It will be small-mid scale usage, has anyone purchased any products recently that they recommend? Open to bundled, open-source, or SaaS implementations.
on the third step I would like to add a button next to the next/previous buttons that would allow the user to add another room.Is there a way to add a button to the wizard and then handle its onclick event
My application is MVC Web App Chat Room , it supports following features:1.Create/Join/Close room 2.Send message in room (just live message, offline message might be supported in future)I have done logic for application, but I'm considering where to save chat room data (message,room information, and users in room) ? I see there are 2 options:1. Application variable2. Using file or database-What if I saved in Application variable:In case of there are 2000 rooms and 10000 users online, mean I have to persistence in Application variable (actually in RAM memory) information of 2000 rooms, more than 10000 message (text), these numbers might be increased by second if there are more users online in real time. and what's next ? I don't know what will happen to server, crash ? or my web app will be terminated ? whatever I don't want both results !
-What if I saved in file or DB (i.e: SQL Server DB) Because of web application, clients have to send request every 1 second to fetch data (messages and user list in room). So in case of there are 2000 rooms and 10000 users online, means they will make 10000 requests every 1 second to DB. I don't know what will happen to DB, there are a lot of connections and in EVERY 1 second, can DB still be alive to serve request ?I don't know where saving is good now because both seem are bad solution
