Is it possible to move the cursor position in a multi line textbox? Here's an example; I have a form with a multi line textbox and a button. The button inserts several lines of [Code] How could I make the cursor go to the blank line between the parenthesis? [Code]
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.
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.
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]
Is there any way you can move a panel using the arrow keys during runtime?and is tehre a way of popping random objects in a game. Like you have this spaceship moving and your "Alien foes" or whatever attacks you. So you want them to pop up randomnly every few seconds or so. How?
I am trying to move a Rectangle Shape using the arrow keys and i have done multiple codes and none of them work. Can anyone help me with the coding.[code]also I am not sure if the code goes in Form1_KeyDown or RectangleShape1_KeyDown
I have a user control, and want to be able to update its cursor while it is disabled. For example, say that I have a user control whose cursor is Default. The below code works ONLY when the user control is already enabled; if it is disabled the below code doesn't work and the cursor remains Default: Me.MY_USER_CONTROL.Cursor = System.Windows.Forms.Cursors.WaitCursor
if I click on the SearchSearch Textbox, I want the highlight to be on the Search Button and not on save without using AcceptButton or any TabIndexing so if whenever i press ENTER and the 'I' cursor is on the SearchSearch Textbox, the search button will be triggered.
before i made the Search button on focus whenrver i click on the Search textbox. so what happens is everytime i click on the textbox it instantly focuses on the Search button making me unable to type anything. I tried also making a Panel for the Search textbox and button having a DefaultButton but it doesnt highlights the Search Button
i am using the grid from dev express.. in vb.net 2005..when i choose a row to edit, in that row, when i select a particular column , then cursor show focus in that particular column , instead it is focused in the first column in that select row.
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.
Is there a more efficient/easier way changing the backcolor of a control when it has focus and lost focus? Let's say I've got 10 text boxes. Right now I would have 20 different events...10 for Enter event and 10 for Leave event. Of course, entering would change the back color to "green" and leaving would change it back to "white".
I'm using DateTimePicker (format dd-mm-yyyy) for vb.net application. If I'm entering date using keyboard, I have to use 'right arrow' key to switch between date,month and year. I want to eliminate use of 'right arrow' key. i.e. if user enters day, cursor should move to month, and after entering month, cursor should move to year. (something like we've in dos base software) .
I am writing a little 'macro' functionality into my multi-line textbox. All going ok except i don't know how to move the cursor up or down lines (simulating the arrow keys), and the 'Home' and 'End' keys.
I would like to avoid the whole 'SendKeys' thing if possible...
I am working on a carputer app, and it will be relatively basic with common tools. I am going to make an onscreen keyboard that fits the style of my app, but I want to make it a seperate application from the main app. All I want it to do is is have my keyboard become visible whenever I enter a text field of any application, whether it be programmed by me or a third-party app. Think about this in the way of a smart phone... Whenever you enter a textfield the system keyboard is displayed.
now when the user fills the mask, say he enters the value for the first two zeros(days part), after that i want the cursor to be automatically at the third zero. (yes the cursor automatically move when the user enters the next input, but i want it to move before the user enters the input)
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)
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...
Code: 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.
I cannot find these anywhere despite googling for quite a while. There's just about everything else but not these seemingly. I want to be able to go back to the top of a (long) procedure and then back down to the bottom, without scrolling or paging down etc.
