I've tried the following but they weren't what I needed/required things I did not use [URL] flowing left to right, not top to bottom [URL] figure out how to implement it. Here's my dilema: I have labels that are dynamically created placed into a table layout. I need the text within these labels to be centered vertically.
My application displays a data entry screen consisting of rows and columns of text boxes and combo boxes.
all the controls are created and placed on the form in code.
On a Windows XP machine (where the application is developed) all the controls line up perfectly. However, on a new Windows 7 machine, the result is as pictured in the attached photo. It seems that the combo boxes are slightly taller than the text boxes.
I have adjusted the .height property of the combo boxes, as well as text boxes, but to no avail.
Both the XP machine and the Win7 machine have different screen resolutions. Is that a possibility, and if so, is there a way to size the controls in a resolution-independent way?
I don't understand why my Label and Text controls are aligned when placed on a winform in design mode, but when I run the application the Label and text controls are uneven and spreaded apart. I using VB .Net 2008.
I tried adjusting the TextAlign property on the label control but the problem still exist.
I would like to have the tabs on my TabControl displayed on the left, or sometimes right. Unlike the System.Windows.Forms.TabControl, however, I would like the text to remain horizontal instead of being rotated by 90 or 270 degrees to the horizontal. Here are a couple of pictures illustrating the concept. Though I could write code to do this myself in about an hour or two, I just thought I'd ask first if there is any existing Winforms control that implements such feature.
On my form I have a Combo Box with long text strings. These are accomodated fine by DropDownWidth property. However, when an item is selected from the list, it appears aligned to the Left not the Right as I would expect.
Trying to build my credits menu for a finished piece of software but I can't get the text to auto correct its self and auto align its self. Basically I want it to align its self after each cycle or rotation/tick. The text needs to be centered in the form.
Private Sub CreditCycler_Tick(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles CreditCycler.Tick If Cycle = 1 Then txtTitle.Text = "Created by" txtName.Text = "UOK Software" [Code] .....
I might be coming up with a few dumb questions over the next few weeks because I am trying to push myself to learn VB 2008. So I think this is the first.I have figured out how to get a datareader to pull data from a MySQL database, pass it from a module back to my form, but when I try to put it in a combobox, the text is always left-aligned. I had never thought about this before because I think I have only ever put text in one before in VB6. However, this time it is numeric and left aligned numerics don't line up well when the numbers look like
I have a wrapper class created around TextBox, and I want to find out if there is any way to test if the vertical scroll bar is at the beginning (the very top) of the text box and at the very end of the text box.Alternatively, I will be happy if only I can find out a way to check if a scroll bar is enabled or not in a textbox (note: it's not a RichTextbox).
By enabled, I mean that scroll bar is actually enabled i.e. you can use the scroll bar to scroll the control, not just visible (I know we can check visibility by GetWindowLong)
I have to fix header of table when i scroll down i want to see column header till the end of records. i made this but i am facing a problem. i fetch data from database that's a dynamic data so when i display that in table the layout gets odd. because if there is a column with more than 1000 words that will change its width while i mention table cell width with percentage. how i can solve this problem that header remain on the top and the layout will not be disturbed what ever data is. i do not want to use jQuery
In addition to the shapes you can create with the code from this thread. [URL]. Here is code to make a control or a Form into a vertical cross shape. This will show you how you can do it in Vb.Net 2008 and 2010 using extension methods. The following post will show how you could do it differently in Vb.Net in other versions as well as Vb.Net 2008 and 2010.
1) From the PROJECT menu select ADD MODULE.
2) In the NAME box type CrossShapedThings.Vb and then click on OK.
3) PASTE this code in.>> Option Strict On Imports System.Runtime.CompilerServices Module CrossShapedThings <Extension()> _ Public Sub MakeCrossShaped(ByVal aControl As Control, Optional ByVal CrossWidth As Integer = 10) [Code] ........
My rich text box overflows with output during execution, thus activating a vertical scroll bar. When the program ends the created text box information disappears.I have tried a message box prior to exiting the program to stop execution but then nothing responds until the message box is A instruction doesnï¿½t accomplish my goal either. I see nothing in the text box properties window which looks like it would do the trick and no luck with Googling for info so far.
I'm using the following calls in a vertical label control: (borrowed from another project)[code]But if any of the text characters are a V or W there are funny jagged artifacts in those letter's angled lines. Does anyone know how to fix this? I tried looking up anti-aliasing etc.. but aside from changing the smoothing mode to antialias I couldn't find anything (changing this doesn't help a bit)
I have an application that makes a drawing with measurements both horisontal and vertical. I like to get the vertical measurements to be in direction down-up, not up-down direction as StringFormatFlags.DirectionVertical does. All the measuretexts are drawn to a graphics path. Because that path includes all measures at different locations I can´t TransformRotate that path, the text should be rotated before it is passed to the graphics path, or ? It would be so nice if it would be a StringFormatFlags.DirectionVerticalUp to handle it.
OK, I'm trying to display tooltip text for a dynamic edit box. Well, at least I'm trying to.
On my form, I've got a tool tip control which I've conveniently named ToolTip. My edit box displays OK. But, what I want to do is when the user hovers their mouse over the text box, I want the tool tip to display some text.
I think there are two problems that I'm having. I'm not convinced that I'm properly addressing a dynamic text box name. Ideally, I would want to be able to refer to the text box (but using a dynamic variable that will contain the prefix of the name). To hardcode, I would want to be able to achieve (not in this example but in theory): ABCDEFGt_0300.Text = "hello"
Dim controllerName as string = "ABCDEFG" Dim t_0300 As New TextBox() Me.Controls.Add(t_0300)
I'm working on a VB.NET application using VS2010 for an application that will run on a touch-screen. I have a problem with a mutli-line text boxes, ListBoxes and DataGridView controls which contains a vertical scroll bar. The scroll bar is too small for anyone with big fingers. Is there any way to make that scroll bar wider so that it's more "finger friendly"?
I want to type the characters from right to left (to behave as a right alignment). But I am not supposed to use the Right Alignment property or the RighttoLeft property of a text box.For example, I want to enter the characters of a string from right and each character should shift one space left so that the user can enter another character after that.
I have never dealt with dynamic control events before. I have a variable number of a controls each created at runtime. However I don't know how to code events for each control as they should do different things. I've looked at WithEvents and AddHandler and know I have to use Sender however not sure how to use /where to put eg. MouseEnter 1 panel when there's several.
I'm having trouble getting controls in non active tabs to update. I have a tab control with 12 tabs. Each tab displays a custom calendar of days for each month. For each of the days I used label controls. Now the trouble im having is when I re-size the window I want the day labels in each tab to re-size accordingly. I have the re-size function written and working but for some reason it will only re-size the active tab. In order for me to have the labels on the other tabs update to the re-size I need to open each tab as to load it then it will update the controls.I've tried putting Application.DoEvents() in my re-size loop but that didn't work. How can I get the other tabs to update / redraw the controls without having to open the tabs first?
I have a WPF window appliaction that I would like to build the functionality to have a dynamic style (font family, weight, size, etc) that is stored in a SQL database allowing a user to specify the type of style to use on control's such as ListView's and labels, etcI have started defining styles in the Application.XAML file and am not sure if this is the best approach to achieve a dynamic style.
I have a page where I would like to collect information about x number of users.I have a control where you enter in the number of users and based off of that number, I create a dynamic table with a row for each user.Each table row has textbox controls that I would like to retrieve the value from on postback.How can this be accomplished?
I'm trying to create an array of checkboxes dynamically and also want to put event to those checkboxes. For example: I have a array of checkboxes - Chk1, Chk2. I want it to work this way: When I check Chk1, I want to disable Chk2, and when Chk1 is unchecked, Chk2 is enable, and vice versa.
On top of that it should look like a table and have gridlines between the 'cells' containing the picture/data, which makes it even more difficult for me. Before, control arrays were quite simple in VB6, but I've been searching for 1,5 hours now and I can't figure out how to do this in VB.NET 2010. Any idea how to tackle this the most efficiently?
I am trying to make a program that will include a drag/drop view where you can arrange objects around in a view and add/delete objects as needed (objects are actually controls I create dynamically), I have made some code which I include below.If I run this code it works but not the part when I click on a newly created control, then mousemove function is not used, I should be able to move controls using the mouse functions..but these do not work. I thought code like:
