DateTimePicker - Customization Of BackColor Win7

Sep 23, 2011

I've created a custom DateTimePicker and implemented code I found on the web to allow customization of the BackColor of the dtp (Making use of WndProc). However, I've discovered that this doesnt work in Windows 7 with the XP Visual Styles option enabled in the project. How to make this work for Win7, without disabling the Visual Styles (the controls look ugly without them).

Below is the code I'm using:
Private _BackColorBrush As SolidBrush = New SolidBrush(SystemColors.Window)
Public Overrides Property BackColor As Color
Get
Return MyBase.BackColor
End Get
Set(value As Color)
[Code] .....

Autocad Dwg As A Screen?

Sep 22, 2009

Im a newb so if I word this a little funny im sorry. I am using VB.net 2005 developer edition and Im trying to import a layout of a conveyor belt system onto a screen. We will be using the screen to show status on motor overloads and devices attached to the conveyor. For example here is a jpeg of one of the screens I would like to make:

We will have to change the color of the symbols when the are active or non active. Also, we want to have the ability to scroll over the symbols and have a message box pop up and tell the status. I am just trying to figure out the most logical way of doing this. I can change the file format of the drawing to Jpeg or bitmap or even PDF.

Load Files Into DGV And Launch AutoCAD?

Feb 27, 2012

I am trying to load files into a Datagridview:

If FolderBrowserDialog1.ShowDialog() = Windows.Forms.DialogResult.OK Then
Dim myFileDir As New System.IO.DirectoryInfo(FolderBrowserDialog1.SelectedPath)
For Each myFiles As System.IO.FileInfo In myFileDir.GetFiles("*.*")
DataGridView1.Rows.Add(myFiles.Name)
Next

I am able to get the files.I have 2 columns "filename" & "readonly"

a) how can I filter just .dwg

b) how can I get readonly a tag that says "yes" into datagridview, so I can see which files are set to readonly.

c) I will be launching the list of files through autocad (I know the process.start method to launch, is there any way I can launch then via desktop shortcut, the reason I ask is there is a script file attached to the shortcut, which amends the drawing when autocad is launched:

"C:Program FilesAutodeskAutoCAD 2012 - Englishacad.exe" /b "A:SCRIPTSmyscript.scr"

Cross-thread Operation Not Valid: Control 'Autocad' Accessed From A Thread Other Than The Thread It Was Created On

Jun 6, 2010

I have written an application that loads a form - frmCad as well as AutoCad. It does this via a class which detects when AutoCad quits.

Friend Class CadApp   Private WithEvents AppObject As AcadApplication...   Private Sub AppObject_BeginQuit(ByRef Cancel As Boolean) Handles AppObject.BeginQuit      RaiseEvent Quit()   End SubEnd Class

My main class loads frmCad as well as CadApp.

Public Class Cad   Private WithEvents frmCad As CadForm   Private WithEvents app As CadApp...   Public Sub ShowForm()      If frmCad Is Nothing Then frmCad = New CadForm      frmCad.Visible = True   End Sub...   Private Sub app_Quit() Handles app.Quit      frmCad.Dispose()      frmCad = Nothing ....   End Sub

When I debug the program, it stops at frmCad.Dispose()The program continues to execute, but all the code after it fails to work.Looking more carefully I get an error message which contains:-Cross-thread operation not valid: Control 'Autocad' accessed from a thread other than the thread it was created on.

Conversion From String "System._ComObject" To Type "double" Not Valid To AutoCad

Feb 9, 2011

I am trying to count Acad Blocks and then write the block references to the modelview using vb.net (VB 2010 Express).I have been scanning the forums for the error I am getting and before I post the code, I thought I would check and see if anyone is experienced with AutoCad and would be able to give some insight.  Have not found much to do with AutoCad on the forums as of yet.I have comments on the debugging process, that might help out somewhat but I can't figure out where the first value is not being assigned (or better yet why).

Example:I have a AcadBlockReference object and I wan't to have the BlockReference object which points to the same object in the drawing.How do I get this object or maybe its ObjectID?
