VS 2008 Listview Detecting ScrollBar Change

May 1, 2010

I've been using 'GetScrollInfo' to find the position of the scrollbar on a ListView and I can detect when it hits the bottom of the list. Is there anyway I can raise an event when the scrollbar changes? At the moment I have it working by using a timer but I would rather if possible create an event to fire my routine.

VS 2010 Extracting Color From Scrollbar?

Feb 2, 2011

I recently started learning Visual Basic, so my knowledge base on it is very poor.What I am trying to do, is creating a simple form with three scroll bars for RGB colors (valued from 0 to 255) and according to the RGB values changing the backcolor property of a picturebox.

I ran into a dead end while trying to convert the scrollbar integer values into color values and I have no idea what to do. Any suggestions how I should perform these kind of operations?

VS 2008 - Using The Color Change Alongside An If And Then Value

Dec 7, 2009

I am having a slight problem using the color change alongside an if and then value. What I want is for gtotal.text to display in red IF the value drops below a "saved" number previousley used in the program. this number is used as "addicost"

Below is a snippet of the code that is most likely to be wrong. The color of gtotal always displays as red by the way. The only time it displays as black is when it first appears on the screen, but after "recalculating" the number in gtotal, it always displays as red.

If total > addicost Then
gtotal.ForeColor = Color.Red
gtotal.Text = String.Format("Total: £{0}", total.ToString())


I have now noticed that by calculating in such a way that G total = 0 makes it display in black. So maybe addicost isnt saving properly? which would be insane since I use it at another point in the program okay.

Private Sub Button2_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button2.Click
Dim AddCost As Double
Dim Total As Double
AddCost = My.Settings.AddCost


This is how I save addicost

VS 2008 - Change Individual Item Color In DataBound ComboBox

May 8, 2009

I have a combobox called cbMaterialType on a windows form that's bound to a table in SQL - everything loads great and the combobox displays 'Material' items as it should, in that table I have two fields - Material (as mentioned above) which is a char(25) and InStock which is an nchar(1). If the InStock field contains a '1', I'd like the individual material to be green in the combobox, if '0', then red. I have the simple code in the drawitem event of the combobox as follows, but can't seem to get any results at all:

Private Sub cbMaterialType_DrawItem(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.DrawItemEventArgs) Handles cbMaterialType.DrawItem
If MaterialTableAdapter1.GetData.Item(cbMaterialType.SelectedIndex).InStock = 1 Then
cbMaterialType.ForeColor = System.Drawing.Color.Green
cbMaterialType.ForeColor = System.Drawing.Color.Red
End If
End Sub

I've never worked with any form of color in comboboxes before and this is my first attempt at the drawitem event.

What I need is for when you click on a label (for instance), the back color will change, BUT I also want it to change to another color (back to its original) when nothing is clicking it. I can change the color with one mouse click, but when I release the mouse button, it stays the color it changed and doesn't revert back.

VS 2008 Differentiate Processes - Change The Color Of Rows Based On Whether The Process Is Owned By The User

Oct 13, 2009

I have populated a ListView with currently running processes and with the help of JMC, been able to highlight specific rows based on memory consumption. However, I've decided to change it up a little bit and change the color of rows based on whether the process is owned by the User, if it's a System process, or if is a Service. I've already been able to determine if the process is a User process by utilizing the OpenProcessToken.

Textbox With Vertical Scrollbar - Get The Scrollbar Position Without Having To Reposition The Carat?

Oct 21, 2010

So with the stock Textbox, I set the Scrollbars property to Vertical. This is great if the text in my box never changes; I can scroll up and down while the box sits still. If I'm running a background operation that logs output to the box though, the scrollbar resets itself to the top every time I append text to the box.

I know I can set the Textbox.Selection property (or use the Select method) to reposition the carat in the textbox, make note of that position in a variable, then append text, reset the carat, and use the ScrollToCarat method to reposition the scrollbar where it belongs. That's a really (ridiculously) long way around. Anybody know if there's another/better way of holding the scrollbar position, short of actually building a custom control (or using a Textbox and a separate Scrollbar)? It never hurts to try. In a worst case scenario, you'll learn from it.

VS 2008 Background Of Form To Be The Same Color As The Window Frame Color That The User Selects

I want the background of my form to be the same color as the window frame color that the user selects, even if that changes. I selected System->WindowFrame as my background color, but it always remains a dark grey, regardless of what I have my window color set to. How else would I achieve what I want? I assumed I was doing it the correct way. Do I actually need code that gets the system window color and then apply it?
