Automatic Copy Text From Outside The Form

Mar 21, 2010

First i need to copy a line of text which i can already get selected this ain't in the windows.form but it's in another program (in my situation it is Inernet Explorer, but also going to need it with others.) so i guess i'll have to make my program press Cntrl+C at the same moment? then it's going to be copyed right? so it'll be on it's "clipboard" then after that i need to get Label3.text = the clipboards text.

i don't have any codes yet, ain't asking you to do my homework but if anyone knows an solution, or can get me some hint. i tried searching all over the web but can't manage to get the buttons pressed at the same moment.

Automatic Internal Padding Is Pushing My Text 60 Pixels From The Top Of The Control To The Top Of The Text?

May 18, 2012

I am writing a kiosk type application, in winforms (I know WPF would be better, this is just to be a rough and ready solution until I've learnt WPF), using VB.Net (VS2008).I have a label on my form with the font set to Segoe UI, and at 120pt size (yes it's large, it's designed to be read from a distance on a 42" screen).The problem I have is that the automatic internal padding is pushing my text 60 pixels from the top of the control to the top of the text and 40 pixels from the left of the control to the left of the text - the label1.padding property is all at 0, so this is the default spacing of the control - it seems to be particularly bad with this font (but it's the font I want to use) and if I increase the font size, this issue gets even worse.

I want my text to fit tightly into the boundaries of my control top, bottom and left (I want the right to expand depending on the length of the string in it, though). How can I achieve this (so that I can control all of the paddding myself using the label.padding property) and get rid of this automatic padding?

VS 2008 Copy From Text Box To Text Box?

Apr 15, 2012

I just started using VB.Net, in fact I have just started to try and teach myself some programming.I have a program where I have 11 RTBs. What I want to do is save the text in the first box to the other 10 boxes by using a button assigned to each of those ten boxes.So when click the button for box2 it then shows the text that is in box1 and if I click the button for box 8 it will show the text from box 1 etc. Now I could just use

RichTextBox2.Text = each button click and just change the receiving textbox number, but that's quite a few button clicks to write code to.Is there a better way to do it? as I am just learning I'd always like to find the best way to do things.

Copy Text From A File?

Nov 10, 2010

I'm a real beginner at this stuff, so I'm grateful for this website. Anyway, I decided to create a little program as a practice and to make my life a little bit easier, but because of my low skills, I'm a little stuck. I hope this isn't too confusing. But this is what I'm trying to do.I have a text box, a button, and a combo box. I want to do the following.

1. Enter text into the text box.
2. Press the button, the name from the text box appears in combo box.
3. The program takes the text from the text box, open a text file and searches the text file for that text.
4. Once found, the program identifies the line in the text file and copies only the first numbers (id) in the file until the comma.
5. The numbers are inserted into a variable under the combo box name from the text box.
6. When the name is selected in the combo box, a website opens up and adds the id at the end of the url.

-This is an example of what the text file contents will be like.

Copy A Bitmap To A Form?

Oct 12, 2010

I know how to copy a bitmap to a picturebox.image but how do I copy the bitmap to the form?
I want to create a form 1600x1200 and put a 1600x1200 image on the form to cover the entire surface.

Then I want to put several pictureboxes 256x40 (Tool Bars) at different locations on the form.

If pictureboxA is at x32, y32 on the form, I want to copy from the form at x32, y32 256x40 to the picturebox.image then draw

the buttons on the pictureboxA.

I know how to load a .jpg or .bmp to the form from a file. This won't work for my purpose.

If there is no fix for this then the only thing I could do would be to create the bitmap then save it to a file, then reload the file to the form. I want to avoid this... It takes up time :(

Copy From Content To Another Form?

Feb 7, 2009

I have a very busy form with 120 textboxes on it. They are all named box1, box2, to box120. this form is a template for 10 other forms. I dont want to create 10 new forms and put all these textboxes on it, so is it possilbe to create a new form; form2, form3, form4 etc...and somehow copy all the content from one form to the other and retain the textbox names. I tried to cut and paste and got some strange errors, then i tried in the solution explorer to copy and past there. I got some odd error about Private components...which i did not understand. As you can imagine with all these forms and 120 textboxes on each to create them is a real effort. Is there not a simpler way?
