I have UC that inherits a textbox. It is meant to only accept numeric values. I want to be able to add a property to give the end user the choice of setting the FORETCOLOR to another color other than that which they have chosen for the normal FORETCOLOR settings. Is there some line of code that will allow me to access FONTCOLOR dialog box when a user clicks the FORECOLORNEGATIVE property setting in the Properties settings?
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 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?
I would like to be able to set Control visual properties such as color, boarder, flat style, etc. on the base class of the control so that as I add new instances of the control, each instance inherits the visual properties of the base. I have tried using Application Settings but it appears as though I need to reference an application setting manually each time I add the control to a form. This is a Windows Form question.
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.
Can a custom control NEW Sub be the only one that executes when Inheriting from an existing control please?I am Inheriting from TabControl and I do not want the base New Sub called, is this possible?In other words, I do not want TabPage1 and TabPage2 to be added.A Form has an Activated Sub which runs once a Form is activated.It is a pity that Microsoft have not got such a method in the baseControl Class otherwise I could have used it within a custom TabControl.
Public Class Form1 Private Sub Form1_Activated(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Activated End Sub
I have an application going here Form1 has a panel on it named TargetPnl. I need my TargetPnl to display my user control named Vviewer when I click my SearchBtn and also need it to disappear when I click another button.
How do I turn off the ability for controls within a groupbox to inherit the groupbox properties. For example, my groupbox text has a fontsize of 9 and bold. Every Label control that I put into the groupbox defaults to the same. How can I change that?
I have problem in Form controls. I inherit label control in a class Mylabel i use this label on my form not standard label control. now i want change the Font all Mylabel in my form then it not change Font when i use standard label control it's work.
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 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]
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 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 am upgrading user control from vb6 to vb.net.In the vb6 application I am loading 3000 labels using a label control array.In vb.net I am doing same but it's taking too much time to load.In vb6 it's taking 1-2 seconds, but in vb.net it's taking 30-40 seconds for same work. Why does it take too much time in vb.net for same work?Code is given below, here Led is the label control array.
For l = 1 To 3000 Led.Load(ledCounter) ColLed.Add(Led(ledCounter))
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 trying to use the Web Browser control in my vb .net user control. I am using VS 2008. Finally, I will be calling my assembly (.dll) from a web page. I wanted to display the usercontrol with the web browser control inside this web page. The problem is I cannot proceed since the Web browser control cannot be called from a partially trusted assembly. Using VS 2008 I have created a strong name for my class, also added the <Assembly: AllowPartiallyTrustedCallers()> to the AssemblyInfo. But still the web browser control cannot be seen in my web page. Do you how I can make my assembly fully trusted so that it can access web browser control? If you have used web browser control, can you confirm if this step is really required?!
I Need Build a user control which works as a Login control using Windows Class Library or Component Template:The user control returns the user name and the password It means that the control has minimum two ReadOnly Property procedures. You let the user of your control (he/she which uses your control in his/her software) to set the background colour of the two labels. Create a Windows application to test your control.
I tried it and get an error but maybe I'm tring the wrong way. Can a usercontrol inherate an application defined class ie.. could you inheritance a classic rect class into a user control to add the hight and width properties to the control without having to do all the coding all over again? Currently I just declair a private instance of the class within the control and then encapsalate. It would be nice if I could just inherit all the functionality of my classes into controls designed to implament the classes.
