Copy From, Erase, Then Paste Back Into The Clipboard?

Jul 26, 2010

I have to automate a program that is outside of my control. The way I'm doing this is to use SendKeys.SendWait("keys") to the other program. The problem is, there are multiple fields that might be active and no way to select a single one with confidence. The fields are all different lengths, so my solution is to copy something really long, copy it to the clipboard, and look at the last character that made it though, so I know which field is selected in the other program. This overrides the clipboard, unfortunately.

Paste From Clipboard Using CNTRL/V On A Menustrip To A Control On A MDI Child Form?

Aug 18, 2009

I want to include the clipboard from the menu strip of my MDI form, ie Cntrl/C and Cntrl/V.  I need a more generic clipboard facility than the examples provided.  I want to be able to copy from external programs, like Word, or controls within my program to either a Textbox, RichTextBox or whatever, of which there may be several, on a child form.  In VB6 this was so simple, but I'm afraid it is proving frustrating, to say the least, in Visual Studio 2008. I have succeeded in getting data onto the clipboard from an external program, but my problem comes when trying to determine the active control on the child form to where I want to paste the data, so I know how to handle it.

I am unable to read a pasted datagridviewrow object from the clipboard. All I want to do is, when a user has the entire row selected and copied, I would paste that row into the clipboard as a DataObject. That works just fine but when I attempt to read that DataObject (after the user clicks Paste) the DataGridViewRow that's saved in the clipboard always has a value of Nothing. Here's the code I'm using for Copy and Paste.

Textbox - Copy/paste Program - Particular Field To Show When Paste It

Nov 20, 2011

I have a small copy/paste type of program. You put text in the boxes, click copy and it copies it to the clipboard. I have a text file attached to format the text when it is copied. what I want to accomplish is...If I don't fill in every single textbox with text, I don't want that particular field to show when I paste it. Example, I have the layout like below on the text document.


No matter what, when I click copy, the text document is going to copy textbox1,2,and 3. If I only put text in textbox 1 and 3, I don't want it to copy textbox2 if its empty.

Forcing 32 Bit Using Corflags.exe?

Oct 8, 2011

I understand that I need to run ...  corflags.exe /32BIT myapp.exe against my VB .Net app if I want to make sure it's associated 32 bit dll's will be forced to run as 32 bit on 64bit computers.

If this will work this looks like a good idea to me since I don't have the opportunity to recompile them on a newer Visual Studio that supports targeting 32bit.  But I have a couple of questions...

Question 1:Is there an easier way to get the corflags.exe program without having to download the whole .Net Frameword 2.0 SDK?

I guess this is what I need to download if there is no easy way to get the corflags.exe file...

Download 1:Microsoft .NET Framework Version 2.0 Redistributable Package (x86)

Forcing Button To Act - Use WM_LBUTTONDOWN

Jan 17, 2011

I am using VB.Net 2008 Express on Windows XP, and am trying to use WM_LBUTTONDOWN in one of my programmes.


This appears to work correctly, in that it goes to the Exit button and I can see the effect of WM_LBUTTONDOWN and WM_LBUTTONUP, but the programme does not actually exit; it just sits there with the Exit button highlighted. I added all the TimeDelay() subs to see whether it needed the extra time.

I also made the following changes, and again, it goes to the Exit button and I know that it is on the button using Spy++, but the programme does not actually exit


How do I force it to exit?

Forcing Re-sizing To Be An Odd Multiple Of 8?

Sep 11, 2011

I have a couple of split panels nested inside of each other. The problem is, I'm rendering an 8x8 tiled game inside of the center panel. Basically, the height and width of the panel need to be an odd multiples of 8 so I can find the center tile displayed easily.I need the width and height to be divisible by 8. The number 8 is multiplied by should be odd:EDIT AGAIN these numbers below do not refer to the size. They refer to two number being multiplied. I've changed them to a * to show this. These numbers below apply to both the height and width. One number should be odd, the other 8. 8*x

5*8 - Good
6*8 - Bad

How do you force a Window to display the caret?

Do solutions give the option of the caret being at the top of the window or the bottom? I would prefer that the carat is at the bottom so I can see all the info immediately prior to the caret, as in this screenshot.

Forcing Validation Within DataRepeater In Winform?

Mar 18, 2011

I have a form with a datarepeater that contains various controls (i.e. datetimepickers, text boxes, combo box) that are populated via a binding source. I also have other controls on the form that are not part of the data repeater.

I would like to force validating all controls after the data is populated. I have successfully forced validating the non-datarepeater controls using Me.ValidateChildren() at the end of my load event. However, it does not fire the validating events for the controls within the data repeater.

I have unsuccessfully tried many different attempts to set and move focus within the datarepeater controls trying to get the validating events kicked off. I am not sure where would be the best place (e.g. in drawItem? in ItemCloned?) to place the code and what it should be exactly. Here was my latest attempt:

Private Sub DataRepeater1_DrawItem(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As Microsoft.VisualBasic.PowerPacks.DataRepeaterItemEventArgs) _
Handles DataRepeater1.DrawItem


Note: I successfully handled the validating events in the data repeater caused by user input errors. However, I have the unusual situation that the data coming into my form is already bad for some of the controls. The purpose of the form is to validate the data coming in to it and from user-input.

The question is implementation. How can I very efficiently force all the field values to upper case vs. say doing Ucase(TextBox1), Ucase(TextBox2)....  ( I have 12 fields in this case) Is there a way to treat the text boxes as a collection and do it in one shot? Just trying to be very efficient and create clean, tight code even on such a simple thing.
