If you open several FullTilt games table, you can see that when on a table is required action it jumps automatically in foreground, BUT WITHOUT TO BE ACTIVATED, so that it title bar is grey and not blue. The window is the top window for my eyes, but it is not active.Now the question is: how to get the Hwnd of the topt VISIBLE desktop window (the window that is over all the other windows), also if it is not the active window?I can't use the GetForegroundWindow Api, becouse it gives the Hwnd of the top ACTIVE window...
I want to be able to hide the left hand side of the screen and right hand side of the screen at the beginning of the program.
Then when the user presses create new button the left hand side of the screen becomes available so they can create the new item. Then when they press save it comes back to the middle datagrid only.
Then I want to add an event when the double click on the datagrid row (data is programmed in to the datagrid in the code) the right hand side of the screen becomes visible then when the button allocate is pressed the right hand side disappears again just leaving the datagrid.
I am running VS2008 and am using VB2008. I have created a solution file with a Windows Form Project. It contains one form. I created a class project called DataAccess. I selected that project and created a data source. Now I see the XSD for that data. If display the "Data Sources" window I see the datasource. So far so good. If I select the Windows Form project, and then display the "Data Sources" window I get an empty window with a "Add New Data Source" button/link. How do I make the data sources created in the second project available to the first one?
I have been watching the videos for creating n-tier apps that suggest adding a third project to the solution called DataEntities. I did that. I then click on the XSD in my DataAccess project. Then in the properties of the XSD I change the "DataSet Project" property to point to my new DataEntities project. When I save the DataAccess project the DataEntities project gets a file added to it as expected. But then the Data Sources window is empty no matter which of the three projects I select.
Clearly I am doing something wrong. The videos all show the ability to see the data source in the "Data Sources" window after setting up this three project structure. One other thing I noted. In most of the pictures in articles showing the Data Sources window. The top most entity in the window is the project file itself. Then in a tree structure you would see the various data sources under that top most entity. When I was able to see something in the data sources window, the top most entity was a data source NOT the project file, with the data sources under it.
Any idea what I am doing wrong? It seems like I need to do SOMETHING to make the data sources in one project visible to the others. And possibly something to make a datasource visible once split apart using the "Dataset Project" property.
I'm making a program running on background that monitors users button click on a specific program, I need to know where this person is clicking. Is there a way to make a virtual map (not visible to the user) of the window this person is looking at and clicking? I need know where this person is clicking so I can take a specific action and show a result to another monitor output.
I dragged and dropped a label from the toolbox onto a form (Label6) and stupidly went to the properties window and set "Text" to blank. Label6 shows when the program is run using F5 but does not show on the design surface if I want to move or remove it. How do I get it back onto the design surface or remove it completely?
I am trying to find the handle of the child window for the Yes button in the User Account Control window so i can click it. This window has a structure with a few child windows with the same name.
Dim hwnd As IntPtr = FindWindow(Nothing, "User Account Control") Dim hwnd2 As IntPtr = FindWindowEx(hwnd, 0, "DirectUIHWND", vbNullString) Dim hwnd3 As IntPtr = FindWindowEx(hwnd2, 0, "CtrlNotifySink", vbNullString) Dim hwnd4 As IntPtr = FindWindowEx(hwnd3, 0, "Button", "&Yes")
There are multiple CtrNotifySink with its own Button child window or other child windows. How do i search thru the different CtrNotifySink window to find the one that contain the Yes button so i can send a click to it? I do need to find it before i can send a click, right? because i try just sending it to the main window with sendmessage and nothing happen.I even try sending it directly to the handle found by spy++ of the yes button with bm click but nothing happen?
I am trying to pass query string from one page to popup window as follow:
Dim popupScript As String = "window.open('cFinder.aspx?cName=" & c_TextBox.Text & "','', 'width=420,height=200,menubar=no,scrollbars=yes');" If (Not Page.ClientScript.IsStartupScriptRegistered("popup")) Then
Excuse me for posting this, but I have searched both Google along with this forum before asking this question, maybe I'm not using the right keywords but I apologize if it's easy to find.I would like to know how one could close a third-party window (application) if a specified string was found in the window title.
I have a VB.NET application that uses Managed DirectSound to capture audio.Everything works just fine until (a) the application is minimized or (b) the application is completey obstructed (covered) by another window.
The thing is that the CaptureBufferDescription structure does not include a GlobalFocus property so I don't know what to do to let my application continue capturing when the main window is hidden.
Here's the basic initialization code I'm using:
' Create a buffer description object bufCapDesc = New CaptureBufferDescription() With bufCapDesc
border of that said window so the only place the mouse can't click the titlebar and the minimize,restore, and maximize button. The height of the titlebar depends on what OS the user is using so I'm having trouble because I can't give a definite value for this. How do I detect the height. and also for border i'm not sure if the borders have different widths with different operating systems. I'm using windows XP on classic mode, when I change to the themed mode, the height of the title bar changes so it won't work.
I am looking to close the application when I click a cancel button in a login page, but I don't want to do it in such a way that Window 2 closes itself, but by sending some notification to Main Window, and Main Window closes the application. Here's the code that I have so far:
Public Event CloseApp As EventHandler Private Sub CancelButton_Click(sender As System.Object, e As System.Windows.RoutedEventArgs) Handles CancelButton.Click
I have create a project with one main form window and also i have to use a number of other forms as well. now i want to open these other forms inside the main window and not outside. I'm using Visual Studio .NET 2010 as developing environment.
I am creating a window that is a generic keypad for editing numerical values on a touchscreen. I would like to press an 'edit' button to create a copy of the keypad window/bring up a reusable version of the same window (I don't care), but pass in parameters: the old value I'm manipulating, and a title to be displayed above the number pad. I would like the user to be able to type in the new value, then press the 'done' key to submit this value and have it sent back to the main application window into my custom control that contains a text box.(I have the number pad's layout sorted out already; I'm already using a variation on it to set a global password 'access level'. It's getting the information in and out that has me scratching my head.) [code]
When I run project splashscreen is popup and then Logon window is run. But unfortunately when Logon window is run the splashscreen still open like maximized window and I cannot see Logon window. How to fix that problem?
how to retrieve microsoft access filenames from a particular folder on my computer? Within my project the user can create a database, and i want to be able to display all of these databases in a combo box?
I have application with 2 forms (Form1, Form2), when i click in a button in form1, form2 open.when form2 opened & I switch to other window and try to switch back to my application (By clicking in its icon in taskbar), it switch to form1.I need when form2 open & click in taskbar, it switch to form2 & also when form2 open I can't edit or type anything in form1.Exactly the same as the below scenario in windows:when I open any new window from "Windows Properties" (Right click my computer), and switch back to windows properties, it will switch to the new window not to the main Windows properties window
I am trying to pop up a window on clicking of the link within datagrid and passing textbox id with it. And on closing the popup window i want to set the value of the textbox control within datagrid need to be updated.
Private Sub Button3_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button3.Click Dim strScript As String strScript = "<script>window.opener.document.forms(0)." + control.Value + ".value = '" strScript += "35"
It works fine when the link is not within datagrid.
I have the following function that should make the window always on top of other applications.
Private Declare Function SetWindowPos Lib "user32" _ (ByVal handle As Long, ByVal hWndInsertAfter As Long, ByVal x As Long, ByVal y As Long, _ ByVal cx As Long, ByVal cy As Long, ByVal wFlags As Long) As Long
The problem is that it reduces the window size so that you can only see the title bar and min/max/close buttons. Also, even that does not stay on top of other windows.
I have used this function before on a windows 7 machine (instead of xp which this one is on) and it worked fine.
I have a vb.net application that, when a short cut is pressed, a window pops up. I also would like to make it completely invisible, unless the short cut is pressed. In the default class that houses my code for noticing the short cut and coordinating the events of the short cut, I have placed the following code:
Me.ShowInTaskbar = False
I have isolated this code as the issue. The issue is that my application does not work when it is not shown in the taskbar. This is only the default form - for the pop up window I have a separate class. How can I create a workaround for hiding the window in the taskbar and hiding it in general?
Btw, this is my hotkey code:
Public Const MOD_ALT As Integer = &H1 Public Const WM_HOTKEY As Integer = &H312 Public Declare Function RegisterHotKey Lib "user32" (ByVal hwnd As IntPtr, ByVal id As Integer, ByVal fsModifiers As Integer, ByVal vk As Integer) As Integer
I want to take a snapshot of the foreground window without using print screen key. So far the only think i can do with the foreground window is get its title but If i can get the size and location then I can get cordinates on where to set capture with graphics.copyfromscreen.

I deal with a lot of com class code. So, my code generally doesn't have a UI.I can't count on the calling code UI to handle the progress nor would they know the progress of my routines. I'm used to a language that allows you to call a progress window from any code. I've been banging my head up against a wall trying to find a way to create a simple Custom Control that I can simply call from my code that opens a modal window to report the progress.No matter what, I see a need for the backgroundworker in my code. But if the backgroundworker is declared in my code, I can't expose the doWork in the doworker sub.
How to catch the event of the window close button(red X button on window right top corner) in wpf form ? We have got the closing event, window unloaded event also, but we want to show a pop up if he clicks the close button of the wpf form.
if you guys have used office 2003 or better( i am sure all) then you would have seen that when the help window open it causes the active windows say of MS WORD to change accordingly so that this help windows fits with it along the right side and this functionality i want to implement in my VB windows application and have no idea how to do it Also i have seen this feature in GOOGLE DESKTOP GADGETS...
i want to implement that when my application opens which ever is the active window( of any application) snaps to the left and allows my application to fir in the right hand side i am developing my application in VS 2005 using Visual Basic.
I call a Fortran routine in a DLL from a VB2005 program. The Fortran routine performs an iterative calculation and writes a line of temporary results to standard output each time through the iteration. I would like to be able to view the DOS window to see the progress of the iteration. When the calculation is complete, a text file is written which I can open and view from the GUI.If the VB program application type is set to "Windows Application" no DOS window is created. If the VB program application type is set to "Console Application" then the DOS window is created and the iteration intermediate result is displayed. However, if set to "Console Application", I do not know how to ask the program to open any other forms.My question is how can I view the DOS window from a "Windows Application", or how can I open other forms from a "Console Application"? If the application is set to Console, and I program a button on the main form to open form2 with "Form2.Show()" I get the following error message: "Reference to a non-shared member requires an object reference.".
