I am building a really complex program, and the only thing that i cannot make work right is the menu.The menu is basicaly 13 textboxes:
There is also a cursor next to the menu with up/down end enter button.When I click the down button it moves the selector one space down and up moves it up..The problem is when i click the down arrow it just moves the selector one space down, when i click it again it does not do anything. Same thing with the up arrow.The code for the down button is and the text boxes tab is in order from 1 to 13.When I reach the end (txtMenu13) and click down arrow, the selector goes back to txtMenu1. I need the selector to be blocked there on txtMenu13 so the user has to use the up arrow to go back to txtMenu1. The same thing when the user reaches txtMenu1 and tries to go up one more, he should not be able to do it.
My app deals with football, and the line of scrimmage. There is an additional line, called the line to gain, used for showing where a first down is earned. I'd like to have a trackbar with two arrow on it... one for the Line of Scrimmage, and the other for the Line to Gain.
I've created a class for my game and I would like to use the arrows key to control an object on screen.
However since this is the keyDown event I've put it in the main form -form1 But it says that .Left is not part of my class since I am trying to put this on the object that was created by the class. If I put this code in my class it says that event KeyDown can not be found because it is obviously but of the form...
Code: Private Sub form1_KeyDown(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.KeyEventArgs) Handles MyBase.KeyDown ' Sets Handled to true to prevent other controls from
How Do I get a menu that changes size, style and font in a textbox? I would like the user of my program to be able to change the font, size, and style of the text.Well, If it is not worth it, it is not fun - you say programmers are boring but i say they are worth it.
Using winform w/vb.net.When I have form w/a textbox and one right-clicks on the textbox a context menu pops up w/copy/paste options. How do I disable this from poping up (I want to use the right-click for my one function)?
I'm working with adding some user-friendly options to a program that I've developed. A lot of these require handling painting the control myself. So far this hasn't been an issue except for this case.In a context menu, I have a text box that a user can type into. However, the context menu doesn't seem to let me input a label next to it so that the user knows what the text box is for. So, I wanted to paint the text box myself but I can't get the routine to work.I have tried to put the following code in the paint event for both the context menu and the text box itself. In the paint method for the context menu, the string and the text box show up at the top of the menu. Not 3 items down like it should. Also, I don't think the end result is truly a text box.[code]I believe that txtRect is set to the rectangle for the context menu and not for the text box itself. If you run this code, "Filter By:" should show up at the top of the context menu.
I am looking for a nice menu control to add some styling to my application. I search the forums and codeplex and codeproject. I found one that is nice..[URL] but I need to be able to embed a textbox for some input.
I have a textbox on my form and I am showing a contextmenustrip when the user right clicks on it. That all works but the only problem is the copy,paste,cut etc menu is appearing above it. How can I disable the copy,paste and cut menu from appearing?
mypen.StartCap = Drawing.Drawing2D.LineCap.ArrowAnchor mypen.EndCap = Drawing.Drawing2D.LineCap.ArrowAnchor but I want a bigger (custom) arrows in start and and of line. It's not clear how to do. Perhaps with:
The trouble is all the arrows point to right, and the menus open variably depending on size.
Is there anyway to make the arrows point left and make all menus open to left in same direction?
Also, Is it possible to make the width of my form autoresize to the size of a label and the image box, while keeping the imagebox at the bottom right of the screen showing the populated label to the left?
I have just made a simple application with a questionnaire. The questionnaire has all 40 questions in the same page (that was one of the specifications) which makes for quite a long form. On top of that, each question has its own group box and each group box has 4 radio buttons for the possible answers (in total 160 radio buttons).
I want the user to be able to scroll down using the up/down arrow keys. However, if he has just selected an answer, pressing the down key will only change the selected radio button (as is the expected behavior of a radio button).
How do I disable the selection of a radio button through the up/down arrows?
I am using VB .NET. I want to know how to make the scroll-up and down arrows visible for my text boxes if the user wishes to enter more lines of text than the size of the text box can take. I would like the user to be able to scroll up and down after he/she has entered all the text.
How do I activate this property - should I be using some other control other than a text box for this?
I have code to create a listbox and populate it, and would like the box to behave like it does when clicked, e.g. if you CLICK on "a" you see it blue and can press the down arrow to move down to "b". how do I achieve this programmatically?
Private Sub junkloader() brandlist.Visible = True brandlist.Items.Clear() brandlist.Items.Add("a")[code].....
this code SELECTS it properly, but I want to be able to navigate with the up and down arrows. how do I do this? thanks.
I have a fairly simple VScrollbar problem: the Scroll event triggers when ANY arrow key is pushed, including left and right... I need it to trigger only when up/down arrow keys are pushed (which, I hope, is the default behaviour).
Essentially all I do is declare a VScroll As System.Windows.Form.VScrollBar and later I have a Private Sub VScrollBar_Scroll (...) Handles VScroll.Scroll that manages the event.
I noticed also that the left/right arrow scrolling is by a smaller increment than the up/down scrolling. All of this seems to happen in a very "black box" kind of way, I can't find any way of determining what should trigger the scroll event.
I'm using a datepicker for a field on my form, but the arrows are not visible. If I go to the location where they supposed to be, I can click them to change the month, but the arrows themselves are not visible.
in my program i have a timer, and every 5 sec (for example) i send a string by serial.i have to read every key pressed between each 5 sec and send a number that tells me what i am sending.what I've done is to send 1 as long as up key is pressed and send 8 as long as left key is pressed and send 9 as long as both are pressed.when i run my program, the first time i press up and left at the same time and i keep them pressed, the serial send me the first time 9 and then ignores the up key and send me 8 always.and sometimes send me 9 and after that always send me 1 and ignores the left key..the point is that vb ignores the first button i press even if i keep pressing it..what should i do to make vb.net takes two arrows keys at the same time?
I have a way of moving a picturebox. I type either 1, 2, 3, or 4 in a textbox. Each number is assigned a direction. Then I click the mouse and the picturebox moves in that direction. This is a little cumbersome for a small video game. Is there a way to assign the four arrow keys to do this?
I want the client to use the keyboard's up and down arrows to navigate inside a DataGridView in an existing VB program, but the DataGridView is created from "ComponentArt". At the moment I can only navigate left and right via the "tab" and "shift, tab" buttons on the keyboard..
Im building a, lets say kiosk, that has only one form of input and that is a keyboard. I've got an up/down/left/right arrows and the enter button. I have a form that needs to have hundreds of buttons. I've arranged all my buttons in a giant grid and want the user to use the arrows to navigate through the buttons. The button that is 'highlighted', lack of a better term, has different colors so we know which button we currently are on. So when the user hits the down arrow the button below the current button gets highlighted. My issue is that when the user hits the left and right arrows the 'cursor' doesnt move left and right it moves up and down.
The left and right arrows follow the tabindex sequence.
I need to identify when a user clicks one of the updown arrows in a datetimepicker. Can that be done?ValueChanged event occurs whether the user clicks an arrow or if the value was changed programatically. I need to determine which method was used.
We have a winform application using Oracle DataAccessClient.There is a gridview and textboxes where we when we click on a row we can populate the textboxes to show more of the data so the user does not have to scroll horizontally.The code that does this is in the cell click event. We want to also do this if the user presses the up or down arrow. We put the code in the PreviewKeyDown event but we are getting the row that had the focus rather than the row that has the current arrow pointing to it. We searched the web at a lot of forums but we can not seem to locate how to do it. How do we move the focus to the row the arrow is pointing to in the grid? [code]
How do I make a menu item on a menu strip link to another windows form (like a menu item that links to an about page already created in the project). I know that every coder knows how to do this, but i've read most of the instructions in the world for Visual Basic coding, but can't find ANYTHING I know coding fairly well, so I can modify it, but I can't create it my self.
I have combed these forums and the 'net and can't find an answer to my specific problem. My menu strip disappeared (after deleting a small secondary form within my project). I therefore created a new strip and while recreating the menu items realized that the original menu items are still present, showing in my properties list. I have checked my design file as well and the original menu strip is definitely gone but the original menu items are there. I don't have many items so I would have no problem just deleting the original ones but I can't see them to delete them! I have checked and they are all set to visible. I have also moved everything on my form to see if it is behind anything else.
This is going to be hard to explain but oh well.I have a form with a menu. When I hit option one, it opens another form (form2) inside that same form (mdiparent). When I hit X on form2, then try to open it again from the original form with a menu thru the menu, It says it cant access a disposed object. Here is the code: Form1:
Suppose I have ToolStripMenuItem mnuOrderOptions that contains the three drop down items. I want to copy all the items are their respective event handlers to Contextmenu on button click & then bound that context menu with the form.
Private Sub AToolStripMenuItem_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles AToolStripMenuItem.Click MsgBox("A") End Sub[code]....
how to clone the menu items and then bound it to form context menu.
