Master / Detail DataGridViews On Form

Jan 5, 2009

I have 2 datagridviews on my form. One lists products and when you click on a product in the first datagridview the other lists tests for the selected product. I have a products table with a productid,productname and productcode. I have a tests table with a testid and a testname and I have a prodtests table with a prodtestid, productid, testid and a few other fields.

Public Class frmProducts
Dim myConstr As String
Private WithEvents ProductBindingSource As New BindingSource
Private WithEvents TestBindingSource As New BindingSource
Private Sub frmProducts_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
[Code] .....

Also I need to add a combobox column to the second datagridview that is bound to my prodtests table and to list the testnames from the test table in a combobox. In my save button, should I just call both adapter.update methods to save all changes. I will add the appropriate update commands etc.

VS 2008 Columns In 2 DataGridViews On Same Form Cannot Have Same Name?

Jun 26, 2009

I discovered a problem in C# (boo hiss!!!) but it applies to VB.NET as well.I decided to build a little app to load info from some audio files using Taglib-sharp (nice little thing it is!) and create a Winamp playlist from the loaded files. (I know it's lame, don't laugh! I just wanted to learn some C#!)I have a form with 2 DataGridViews. I load the first dgv with some tag info from the selected files. I then move those files from 1 grid to the other, shuffling their positions along the way.The annoyance I found is during form design. If I try and name a column in the second DGV the same as in the first (eg. "Filename") I get an error that says the name is already in use by another component.To me this is not right. The column is part of a separate object, shouldn't this mean that "Filename" in object1 isn't the same as "Filename" in object2? I even have to refer to the specific object to get the column's value in a row. [code] to access the column's value in the first row of dgvMine or dgvOther, then why does the darn designer care if "Filename" exists in dgvMine and also in dgvOther? Shouldn't they be separate declarations "within" each of dgvMine and dgvOther?

Printing A Form Containing DataGridView?

Apr 17, 2012

I develop a project in VB 2010 Express and my project includes two related DataGridViews . One of the DGV has a unique ID for every row. The DGV shows that ID as a Barcode. To see how to format a DGV column to show a Barcode follow the link below:

Format DataGridView to show Barcode - Code39

how to print the form, so the barcodes can be read by a barcode scanner?

I tried to print the form with Visual Basic PowerPacks - PrintForm (See link below). Everything was smooth until I saw the printed paper. Printing quality is very low, and the barcode can't be read with the barcode scanner.

Print a Form using PrintForm component

I tried diffrent ways to print that form with no succes. What do you suggest I should try?

(As i said, I have 2 datagridviews and 4 buttons (one for filtering called "TestOrder", one for Printing called "btnPrint", one for print preview called "btnPrintPreview", and one for page setup called "btnPageSetup").

Printing A Form On Windows XP?

Jun 24, 2010

I developed an application for a local company that required printing a chart and some data. I made the program on a Windows 7 machine using the PrintForm control. It printed just fine and I sent it to the company, but they are running it on WindowsXP and the program is crashing. I assumed that PrintForm would work on all Win operating systems but apparently that is not the case?

If there is something special that needs to be done to get PrintForm to work on XP that would be fine (downloading a lib file or something), but otherwise what is the best way to print out a VB.NET form on Windows XP?

Printing A Form To A Printer?

Feb 15, 2012

printing a displayed form to a printer. This is my current code. (I am using the PrintForm visual basic PowerPack.)

Private Sub btnPrint_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnPrint.Click
cPrintForm.PrintAction = Printing.PrintAction.PrintToPreview
End Sub

This prints the form fine, but the problem is that the page printed is portrait, and my whole form doesn't fit on it, so I was wondering how to set it to landscape?

Printing From A Form Button?

Dec 4, 2010

I have tried using the printform component to do my printing but found I couldn't fit all the information in labels in the form designer as it wouldn't increas the length of the form longer than about 812, so decided it might be better to use the standard printing tools.

My program was orignally done in vb 1.0 and I am redoing the program in visual basic express 2010.

I have looked at the msdn help and several ebooks i downloaded but most seem to assume you are either printing a text file ie something saved from a text box or an actual file.

I see they have changed completely how you do printing no longer using printer.print and treat it all like a graphic using drawing etc and screen co ordinates and I am finding it very confusing. Nothing I have read seems to cover printing information like
this where there is lines of text being generated to give the values of variables, more things like how to print a picture graphic and have a coloured background.

Basically what I want to print is a quote and cutting list for timber. All the variables are assigned values by entering info in text boxes etc.

Calculations are then done to give a final set of values that are then printed like a report or quote for the end user.

This is what was used in vb 1.0 to achieve this

Sub quoteprint()
printer.fontsize = 12
printer.Print Spc(10);


increase the form length in the designer so i can fit everything in in labels to use the print form component, it would be greatly appreciated.

I may be missing an obvious step but I am still new to visual basic express 2010, and the original program I did using vb 1.0 is the only visual basic programming I have done so i am still a learner.

When And Where To Use DataGridViews

Mar 24, 2011

1) Do you typically allow Deletions, Additions, and Edits in a DataGridView?

2) Have you found any simple way to use combos in a DataGridView? (See edit below.)

3) What type of binding do you typically use on a DataGridView? Do you manually code it? Bind it to an custom BindingSource object?

I'm accustomed to programming in MS Access and I'm now working on learning VB.NET. In Access I typically use updateable DataSheet view bound forms but this doesn't allow me to separate my business logic and create a Data Access Layer. Now I'm trying to figure out how to have an updateable DataGridView in .NET together with separate layers for Business Logic and Data Access. So far I haven't really been able to make sense out the many things I'm reading about this.

I need my DataGridViews to be easily sortable, filterable, and allow up to 10,000 records to be displayed at one time. I've achieved this using ADO.Net with standard DataTables (all written in code) but all my business logic and Data Access is in the code behind my form.

Edit:I guess I was under the impression that ComboBoxes are really difficult to use in DataGridViews so that's why I had posted question #2 above. I think I need to research this a little more as it's probably not as difficult as I thought it was but it doesn't appear to be anywhere as simple as a combo in MS Access. However, I realize that MS Access has many other limitations that VB.NET does not have.

Printing A Form Using Info From List Box?

Mar 19, 2012

I've searched and searched for an answer to my question, but as of yet, have yet to find a solution to what I'm looking for. My background - 6 months out of College (Computer Studies)

Right now I'm working on a program that is going to be used to handle database information (Access 2007). On the main form the user can select 3 pieces of required info from drop down list boxes. Those are required. Then after that they are able to enter a first name and a second name. They then add that name to a list box below. They can add as many names as they want to a list box. Then from there they have the option to either just save the info, or if required (which will more then likely be the main option) print each person in the list their own certificate. I have designed a separate form laid out the way required for the certificate.

The trouble that I'm having at this time is that I am unable to make the printing process show all of the certs that are going to print in a print preview. I have been able to get it to only show one. The form is set to load where hidden = true.

Printing Form - How To Centre Print

Mar 23, 2012

Basically I currently have the following code which enables me to print the form perfectly.


However, with the coding above on the print preview the form screen shoot/dump isn't centred. So I was wondering what would be the way to go about doing it? This is using the printform in the power packs available btw.

Also I figured it might be using height/width/location/margins etc, but I'm not to sure how one goes about assingning values to them. Like the two above I commented don't work.

Printing Multiple Documents From One Form

Aug 22, 2010

I have a scheduler with multiple views. 1 day, 3 days, 5 days and 7 days.I have figured out how to scale each view and it prints correctly. What I am having problems with is how to allow the user to print these different views from one screen. I have a dropdown box with 1 day, 3, day, 5 day and 7 day. On the scheduler I have put the same procedure as Print and Print2 with just minor differences for the scaling for each view. Print Document1 and PrintDocument2 are on the second form. For some reason, no matter how I call the print document2 I end up with Printdocument1. I have checked it over and over but am getting no where. Would there be any reason I can't use multiple printdocuments on one form for printing different procedures?

I also want the printed chart to be a fixed size. The size of the chart depends on the size of the form. The size of the form depends on the resolution of my screen. So the printed chart isn't always the correct size.
