Datagridview And Down Arrow To Move Down Rows?

Mar 13, 2012

With a two column Datagridview, first column with a number in it, and second column with nonwrap text.  When the datagridview width is less than the width of the data in the two columns, the only way I can get a horizontal scrollbar to show is with the width set for both columns. If I then try to scroll down the rows using the down arrow, the grid jumps to show only the second column. I have tried various settings for the columns - fill - fillweight - autosize etc.

I found one solution, setting the first column to frozen in the key down event and then setting it back in the key up event but the scrollbar does flicker and I am sure this is not the correct way to do this.

The user needs to scroll down the rows and be able see the first column whilst doing this and then if necessary scroll right to read any text not visible.

Make Tab Key Or Enter To Move Focus From A Combobox Control?

Jan 26, 2011

I have a combobox on an Excel worksheet that I can tab into, then pick my data (located on another worksheet) after activating the "arrow". But the tab or enter key does not allow me to navigate away from the cell after it is populated. The only action that allows the user to move to another cell is by mouse/click to another cell. I am trying to make navigation through though worksheet as user friendly as possible.I can't seem to find any sample code that will take the focus away from that cell using Tab or Enter.

I have no problem with ListBoxes created using the Data Validation method but I have to create a ComboBox control on the active worksheet in order to return the data chosen (in this case a code that corresponds to a description). If this was a Form I wouldn't have any problem as the properties would allow me to set that up, but this is essentially a spreadsheet I've inherited and the current users do not want to go to a Data Entry Form.

Arrow Keys In MDI Focus Is Lost

Nov 28, 2009

I had previously made a simple Pong program which use keyboard to control. The control includes "s" to start the game, "p" to pause, "r" to resume and left, right to move the paddle specifically. This program work with little problem. The first problem I encounter is if I insert even one single button on the form to display instruction, the arrow keys will no longer work. But I get around it by using Menu Strip instead.

Then, I am required to put this program, among others into a MDI program. And this is where the problem happen. If I have this Pong game loaded, and I press "s", "p", or "r" keys, it have no problem, but if I press the "left" or "right" keys, it will not move. I am speculating that maybe the focus is lost when arrow keys is pressed or something similar, but I have absolutely no idea what is happening. I have tried giving focus back to the form if focus is lost, but to no avails. And this is the code for the movement of the paddle. This reside on a form, the movement itself is passed to another class. The MDI parent is on another form. [Code]

Setting Focus On DataGridView Control Programmatically In Visual Basic?

Aug 10, 2009

I want to programmatically set the focus to the last row (bottommost, its only one column wide) in the DataGridView control for Visual Basic. How can I do so?

So far, I have tried DGV.Rows.GetLastRow(DataGridViewElementStates.Selected)

without success, though I did not expect that to work. It absolutely must select that last cell. Otherwise, the application is nearly impossible to use!

Here is a screenshot of what I am making with this: [URL]..The "Paste Clipboard Contents" button only pastes into the selected cell, though I guess I could find a workaround.

Dec 20, 2009

currently I have a Customer Master screen. Inside the screen, I have a button which call the Customer sub window.

RichTextBox - Setting Focus (Cursor) Before ContextMenu

Jun 18, 2009

I have a couple of TextBoxes on a Form and also a RichTextBox control which is associated with a ContextMenu1. Now, while my MouseCursor still blinks friendly in one of my TextBox controls, I right-click the RichTextBox and get surely my ContextMenu1. However, this ContextMenu won't do me any good unless I first left-click my RichTextBox in order to set my cursor in there and then right-click again to open the ContextMenu. I've tried to work with RichTextBox.Focus() and also with something like ... If
e.Button = Windows.Forms.MouseButtons.Right Then ...
But nothing seems to do the trick.

VS 2010 - Find Image And Move Cursor To It?

Feb 19, 2012

It is very easy to move your cursor to a specific coordinate but my question here is how do you move your cursor to an image? Now what this would involve doing is importing an image so the program understands it, then finding that image on your screen (maybe through RGB colors). How exactly do you do this? What is the procedure?

Say I want to import this image: Now I want the program to find that image on the screen (THE START BUTTON) and then move my cursor on it.
so cursor.position = new point(the image)

Lost Focus Event, What Control Is Getting Focus?

Mar 21, 2012

I have a textbox on a form that when it loses focus it updates other text boxes on the form. But before it updates the other textboxes I check the input value in the textbox lostfocus event if it is undesired I return focus to the the textbox and alert the the user with a msgbox. However where my problem is, is that when the cancel button is clicked I don't care what the input in the textbox is because the changes are being canceled but if the value is undesired the it keeps returning focus to the textbox instead of canceling the changes. Is there a way to see what control was clicked on before or in the lost focus event? Can't seem to figure it out tried enter and leave events but no luck!

So for example something like this...

Private Sub TextBox1_LostFocus(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles TextBox1.LostFocus
If Control that was clicked <> btnCancel then

I have this problem every so often in VS2010. What will happen is I'll be working along and run the program then stop debugging. When I get back to text editor to change something the cursor will be stuck. It won't let me move it with the arrow keys and I can't type anything in. I can move it with the mouse but when I do that I still can't type anything in at the new position. The only way to get this to go away is to close out VS2010 and restart it again.
