VS 2010 Make An Enum Of Strings?

Feb 20, 2012

I would like to make an enum of strings. There are several masks for text boxes that I would like to standardize in our system.For simplicity lets say there are 2 masks:

"PhoneNumber" which is "(999)000-0000"
"Zip Code" which is "00000-9999"

I would like to be able to reference these through out the entire program in a manner such as:

DefaultMasks.ZipCode or DefaultMasks.PhoneNumber

Since enums can not be of string type, what would your best suggestions be as to how I could do this. I had thought about a class with constants in it but I was not sure how to implement that properly.

Asp.net - Make Enum Bindable To Datagridview

Dec 10, 2009

I have an object which contains a number of string properties and an enum property called CRAction.

I have another object which represents a collection of the above object.

When I bind the collection object to something like a gridview, all of the string properties bind fine, but the enum doesn't appear.

I have added another string property which returns CRAction.ToString, but is there a better way to make an enum bindable to a control as part of an object?

It all seems a little hackish to have another property for the same thing purely for data binding!

Nullable Enum Verse Enum.None?

Which is better, using a nullable enum or adding the value None=0 to your enum list?Using nullables requires more code, but I kind of like it since it forces me to think about the possibility.  Otherwise I'm liable to forget about the None enum and fail to account for it being a special case.

VS 2010 - Connecting ComboBox With Enum Kept In Another Class?

How to connect a combo box and an enum which is kept in another class? I have searched google a lot but the only solutions I can seem to find involve declaring an enum with the combo box. I however want to keep my enum elsewhere, not in the main gui element handling form. The closet thing I could guess was:
Combox99.DataSource = System.Enum.GetValues(GetType(MyBookList.OptionsList)

VS 2010 Enum Class And Cyclic Correspondence Checking

Mar 13, 2011

I wanted to make a collection of definitions public, for which the Enum class was a perfect candidate, but I also had the need to check variables against all the possibile enum members to see which one they were.

In this scenario my solution was to write a public enum class in which all the members were made available, and replicate the same listing in an array in order to iterate through.

In fact the only way I know to iterate through all memebers is a cycle (either "for each" or "while somecondition" and a moving index). But I guess there must be a simpler way to make use of an enum class.

VS 2010 Get The Text Between Two Strings?

Sep 28, 2011

I guess my question has two parts:

1. My program has to read text out of a text file. I use some HTML tags to preserve the formatting. For example, I might have the line "this is a <b> line </b> of <b> text </b>" where "line" and "text" are bold. How do I make it so the string prints to a RichtextBox, but only "line" and "text" are bold? I would use a RichTextbox.SaveFile method, but the program works by reading a group of richtextboxes in a flowlayoutpanel and appending them to a single text file.

2. How would I extract the text from between two strings? For instance, I have created special tags for use in my program. These tags tell the program where to add controls. Say my string was:

"[IMG= "dog.jpg" /] this is a picture of a dog. [IMG= "cat.jpg"] this is a picture of a cat."

For each occurrence of the string "[IMG=", I would need it to find the corresponding "/]" and extract the text between the two. I could maybe do something with a substring function. I don't know.

VS 2010 Drawing Strings On A New Image?

Oct 18, 2010

My goal is actually very simple: I simply want a (shared) function that accepts a List(Of String) which creates an image and writes those strings (line by line) onto the image. There's a bit more to it than that, but for the sake of example this is all you need to know.Usually when drawing on an image I would create a Bitmap object and get the graphics object from Graphics.FromImage:

Dim bmp As New Bitmap(100, 100)
Using g As Graphics = Graphics.FromImage(bmp)


Seems easy enough, but the problem is that I don't know how many strings there will be in the list, nor how long they will be. The image should 'scale itself' according to the strings in the list. If the list contains 5 strings it should be 5 strings high (plus a little extra for borders). If the list contains only 1 string it should be only one string high. Same goes for the width, if the longest string is 150 pixels, the image needs to be at least 150 pixels (160, 170 or something).

This is all good, I can get the dimensions of the strings by using Graphics.MeasureString. The problem now is that I need the dimensions of the image to create the bitmap. I need the Graphics object to get the dimensions. But, I need the bitmap to get the Graphics object I'm stuck in a loop here, if I don't have the Graphics object (I can't create it from nothing..) then I cannot measure the strings, but if I cannot measure the strings then I cannot determine how large my image will be, so I cannot create a bitmap and associated Graphics object...
