Does anyone know an easy way to produce a "Common Tasks" menu similar to the one in My Computer, Control Panel etc..I can't seem to find a control in the toolbox and it would be insanely useful for the app I'm currently writing.
I am making report form. I want to display data which is rendering from data MS Access. I could not find the gridview in toolbox. I found datagridview for this req. but this controls displaying header like button format. I want to display just simple data and print.
Does anybody know where to find a toolbox for Visual Basic 2005 or 2008 that allow to create level, button, display or other special box used on a bridge of a ship? I want to simulate a small bridge of a ship and I need something that allow me to display engine power, rotation speed, level of pressure, compass and so on.
Does VS 2008 have a control availible like the toolbox control from within the studio? I've looked through the list in the toolbox for choose items and am not finding it, but since I don't know what it would be called I might be over looking it.
I 'am using Visual Studio 2008 Version 9.0.30729.1 SP with Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1..Every time I try to add a control to the ToolBox I receive the following message:"The following assemblies are installed SDK assemblies but could not be shown in the customize toolbox dialog because they are missing one or more components. Please make sure that all necessary libraries are available.
I'm having trouble adding a new control to my toolbox.I downloaded the projected and extracted.I the went to the VB toolbox, rightclicked the mouse button and selected choose items. I then clicked the browse button. I selected the folder I had extracted to and then went to bin/debug/menucontroltest.exe.
I know you can add a control or collection of controls to the VB IDE toolbox by adding a dll file to it.Is there an example of how to create a tool somewhere. I would like to be able to design a skin and add it as a toolbox item.
I am using VS2008 and dont know about wpf. I would like to add a control that will dock to the left side of the MDI container, and have the same functionality as the tool box (be able to pin, and mouse over to show)in this i will be adding a treeview control that will be used as a menu.
I know how to get a user control into the toolbox, but is there a way to get it to be part of vb.NET's startup as a permanent control? In other words, if I start vb.NET and begin a new project, it would be nice that the custom control is already available without having to load its dll each time I start a new project.
I have read and played with code that streams output to a richtextbox but that is runningit from cmd.exe but I run kix32 programs like anything.kix using commmand line kix32 c:anything.kix and it can be run from a *.cmd file as well.
why havent' experts made a toolbox item/control that is say called console? like they seem to have many others dialogbox - browse box etc...? It has been years since VB.net has been out. why why dont they make one??huh? I have looked all over net and it ant no easy job either.
I mean all the code i see makes it very difficult you have to be an expert just to make the coding. Is there some class or something that maybe a beginner/intermediate might be able to tackle..
I just want the command line that is initiated by the kix32 engine to be streamed to my richtextbox in my gui vb.net program
I made a custom control that is a 15x15 grid designed to show a tiled map. Inside I have a class that inherits from pictureBox. The problem comes when I try to place my DLL inside the toolbox. When I click "browse" and select my DLL to import it simply import my class inheriting pictureBox instead of the whole package.
Here is a picture of my files. Grid.vb is the control, clsTile is the pictureBox class and the other one is irrelevant. [URL]
I made a customized TextBox that I'd like to permanently add to the toolbox. But when I close the project that I created it in, my new control also disappears and I have to copy/paste or import the class-code every time I want to use it. Is there a way to get the control in the toolbox "forever"?I tried to enclose the class in a "Namespace CustomClasses" statement and changed the root namespace in the project properties to "CustomClasses", but nothing of what I tried is permanent. I prefer to store my classes in a "real" root namespace, in the same root as the microsoft and system namespaces.
I've been reading up on this and it seems I'm not understanding something to make this work.It seems that the ToolBoxBitmap() isn't picking up the image I specify (which is a 16x16 bmp and is part of the project) and I'm at a loss to why.
I'm interested in a description of the step-by-step process for creating a custom control and making it available in the toolbox with vb2008. Just for an example, suppose one wanted to have an array of 9 buttons in a 3x3 pattern already labeled 1-9 as a control usable from the toolbox just as a single button or label etc. is, so that one could drag it from the toolbox to the form or a groupbox.
I am building an application in VS2008 (VB.NET) that contains several user controls. When I was developing under VS2005, all the components in my application would load into the toolbox so I could access them during design.
Since upgrading to VS2008, however, those application-based components do not load, and I cannot access the user controls I have built.
1. Exit Visual Studio
2. Navigate to %USERPROFILE%AppDataLocalMicrosoftVisualStudio9.0
3. Delete the TBD files found there (these are hidden by default)
4. Re-start Visual Studio and open your WPF application - the toolbox will now be reinitialized
and that worked for one session, but it did not get preserved -- when I shut down and came back into VB.NET, the application-based controls no longer loaded.
Is there some setting in VS2008 that I am missing? Or is there another step to getting the app-based controls to reappear each time I load the development files?
The particular control I'm trying to figure out is a UserControl. When I design it as a separate DLL, add it to the Toolbox, then drag it onto the form, it shows up. But when I declare the instance in Form_Load & add it to the Forms Controls, it doesn't show up. (Note that I'm dealing with two different UserControls here as what I don't really want to do is create it as a DLL. It's specific to this project & that's where I want it-in this project. I suppose I could create it as a separate project in this solution, but again-that's not what I want to do. I can add a UserControl to this project, but I can't seem to *use* it. Frustrating.)
Dim X As New Class3 X.Size = New System.Drawing.Size(96, 74) X.Location = New System.Drawing.Point(5, 5) Me.Controls.Add(X) Me.Refresh()
Class3 inherits System.Windows.forms.UserControl, and contains a label.OK, found that I can make the UserControl appear by setting the BackColor (X.BackColor=). Doesn't seem like I should need to do that as it's set in Class3, but apparently when I add it to the form it picks up the form's backcolor-which might be the way UserControls work.
But, it still doesn't show the label that's on the UserControl-just a block of color where I placed the UserControl.And now, I might have solved this problem only to raise another. I finally noticed that although Class3 had an InitializeComponent sub it lacked a Sub New-so it never called the InitializeComponent sub.
I added a Sub New that does nothing except call InitializeComponent & now I'm getting the whole thing. I guess now the question is why the Sub New is required for Class3 but not for the DLL? (Or maybe it was created automatically for the DLL but not for Class3? I'll check the hidden code in the DLL project to see if it was created or not.)
I'm trying to add a custom panel to my toolbox using a dll file, but when I add it as a reference it only appears as greyed out - and this is only after I click "Show All" in the toolbox.Everything builds fine in the Class Library project I used to create the custom control. Here is the simple
Imports System.Windows.Forms Public Class pnDoubleBuffered Inherits Windows.Forms.Panel Public Sub New()
I build the project, open my main project where I want to use the control. Then I click "Choose All" from the toolbox and add the reference using ".NET Frameworks Components". I find my dll file and click OK. Then nothing is added to the toolbox. I manage to see the control greyed out when I click the "Show All" option.
I have been using vb6 for a while, I am following a tutorial by MS to develop a basic application and a simple task cannot be completed for whatever reasons! The tutorial asks to drag the label object from the toolbox and drop in the tab control container. Then, go to the label size property and adjust the size to some different dimansion. Basic stuff, right? It won't let me do it! After I enter the new dimensions (which by the way are not large or very small), the label size (both width and height) resets back to its original dimensions! I have the vb.net sp1 installed.
I working on a VB.NET project to manipulate a VB6 form using COM Interop. Some of the controls on my VB6 form are indexed and some not, so calling ctl.Index fails on those that have no index. Is there a way to work out if a control is indexed?
