The Enable Application Framework Check Box seems pretty well defined in a number oprevious postings, but leaves one question in my mind. The default is unchecked and the sub-topic Check boxes are:
Enable XP Visual Styles - - Checked
Make Single Instance Appllication - - Not Checked
Save My.Settings On Shutdown - -Checked
There are also 3 Combo Boxes:
Authentication Mode - - "Windows"
Shutdown Mode - - "When startup form closes"
Splash Screen - - (None)
When I un check the Enable Application Framework Check Box all items under it are grayed out. However, if I have changed one of the Comb Boxes my selection is also grayed out...My question is, have I lost the use of those function: Specifically I am mos interested in starting my application from a Sub Main and closing the application when all forms close.My underlying question is . . . are the greyed out selections still valid?
What it is the option Enable application framework that I found in Visual Studio under VB.NET WPF projects Application settings?I found it enabled by default and the "Shutdown mode" configured as "On last windows close". But for me is not really clear what does it mean that setting and also the other settings listed in that combo box.
I'm creating a WPF application in VB.Net. I am trying to decide where my startup code should go. I seem to have two choices: Leave the "Enable Application Framework" box checked and choose a "Startup URI" from among the application's windows. Uncheck "Enable Application Framework" and choose to startup in my own Sub Main.
I was messing about with my code when I recieved some errors, I deleted some stuff but I don't know what but it fixed the errors I was getting but now the Enable Application Framework section has gone..
I have used Infragistic UltraWinGrid to display data on the Grid. In this grid, there is one check box column. I have added check box in header in this column to selectAll option. Now I want to enable/disabe this header check box on any button click event to restrict user to perform any action.
I am writing an application that puts a computer in hibernation mode (Application.SetSuspendState). I have noticed that there exists a specific option that needs to be enabled for the machine to hibernate correctly and that is found in Control Panel--> Power Options --> Hibernate Tab (if this option is not checked then the machine goes into stand by mode rather than hibernate) Is there a way to programmatically check the status of the "Enable Hibernation" check box and check/uncheck it?
I have distributed a simple VB 2005 application that generally runs just fine without any installation: the user just inserts the CD and it starts via autorun.inf. The rare problem the users have is if they do not have .Net Framework 2 installed. I want to catch this error in my application, and display an appropriate message. I also want to test this on my own computer (which of course has the Framework installed). So my questions are
1. Should I be using a try-catch-end try in the form load sub, or somewhere else? and
2. How can I test this on my own computer without un-installing the Framwork? If I can raise an error while debugging, what error number should I raise?
My application required .NET Framework 2.0.Currently, if it is not installed the user recieves the following error:The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000135)'.It becomes extremely tiresome repeating to users that this is because the framework isn't installed. Is there some way to check if .NET framework 2.0 is installed before running, or in some way change this cryptic message so the user knows immediately
Is there a way to check if the necessary version of .NET framework has installed and if it has not installed to display a custom message explaining the user what is the problem and how to download the required version of .NET framework in order to make the application work?
I am in the process of developing a messaging framework for a windows application that sends messages to a java application. To be precise when the win app wants to send a message it simply drops the message in a common database table which will be picked up by the java app. The windows application is deployed across 10 application servers (10 instances) over citrix for load balancing.Each instance of the application is capable of sending a message to the java application and each of these messages should have a unique id. From my end I need to make sure every message generated has to carry a unique id so that they can be identified when necessary. All the messages can be cleared every day or two.i am not quite sure about a best method of achieving this. Initially I wanted to create a static method that serves the next available id (incrementing the last id by 1). But this approach willn't guarantee unique number as the application starts only when at least one user is logged on. For e.g .On one server the app starts when a user logs in, he then sends a message and then the application stops when that user logs off. So when a next request for the app comes to that server a new instance will be started.
I'm developing an application with visual studio 2008 and compact framework 3.5 who needs to tell users about the compact framework version. If the user don't have the version specified in the application it sends a message but windows check the version before the application runs and send error message. How can i check the version before windows in vb without compact framework?

I was wondering if there was a function in user32 that could enable a hwnd control if it is disabled (grayed out) If I know the handle then can I do this? Also, if it is a menuitem, can it be done too?
I am trying to get a checkbox to activate and deactivate a button. While the button is deactivated it is dimmed or faded out. While Actvated the Text and button is fully visable. I did use ctype to activate the button from the checkbox.
I found this code in the help section online to enable & disable an inactive button but do not know how to apply this to the button.
Enable or disables the automatic generation of inactive button images.
I imported some code I found a few months ago for a client server messaging program from vs2003 and everything appeared to be ok, apart from a couple of niggles such as the windows form designer generated code being visible on the main form code page but i could live with that. I just tried to add a splash screen but when I went to the application tab to set it up there is no enable application framework checkbox and no windows application framework groupbox. I tried running my application again and now the xp visual style has gone and it looks terrible, is there anyway to get the application framework back on again or do I have to start a new project and copy and past all my code into the new project.
I was looking to build a Data Access Layer for my new web based application, I'm using ASP.NET. I'm want to build a framework not only for this application but also want to utilize it for my future projects.
Actually my main aim is to make a framework, from DAC, DAL, BL to GUI. I want suggestions from you guys that what should i adopt, what give me flexibility, which suits for both small and large size applications.
I'm currently using MS Visual Studio 2008 Express Edition. My .NET Framework version is 3.5. I made an application in VS 2008 and it worked perfectly. However, when I ran it at my friend's place (who's got .NET Framework 1.1), it didn't run. Now, I know that the framework incompatibility is the issue.So, what I ask is, how do I code the application so as to make it run on Framework 1.1 as well while still using VS 2008?
This sounds weird and dumb but supposedly is this possible to run .Net application without installing .net framework? Is there anyway of embedding reference .dlls into the respective application? This came in my mind because I made a small notepad application in vb.net < 1mb in size and to run it, it requires full .net framework.
I need to use linq in C# Windows form application working with .Net Framework 2 not 3.5 . I Know it may be some sort of stupidity to do that. but i need that for some special reasons. Can i import just linq libraries to my project by anyway ? or there is no way except for using 3.5 ?
