Sometimes coding in C#, you can't see the forest for the trees. I'm sure the answer is ridiculously simple, but it has me baffled.
On a windows form, the user clicks a toolstrip item which opend a dropdown list. The user clicks a selection, dropdown list disappears, and the selected item displays towards the top. To get rid of that displayed item, you have to click anywhere else on the form.
All I'm trying to do is when the user clicks their selection, close (wrong word?)down the display for that toolstrip item. (Act as if I clicked on a different portion of the form.)
Researching the problem, it's comforting to know that I am not the only one experiencing this problem. Other users experiencing the same problem seem to report "it doesn't work" to other offered solutions. I found an old post with an answer by a Microsoft employee stating, "It's by design." Well even so . . .
Ravi, My apologies. I'm unfamiliar with this messsage board and I hit a "down arrow" icon thinking it would scroll down to the next message. Turns out it gave you a thumbs down for your answer, which was definitely not my intention. - Kevin
I have a strange problem with the configuration of an application written in c # winform.
I wrote a simple application that reads some records from a table in sql remote. in the App.config file I wrote the connection string and everything works.
I copied the bin folder on another pc and for error I renamed the configuration file <apptext> .exe.config in <apptext> .exe.conig
I run the application and the application rightly gave me error because it could not find the config file. I renamed the file correctly and everything works fine.
What happens: :mad:
randomly when I do a restart of the PC, I find myself in the bin folder
the configuration file wrong, what I had written the first time <apptext> .exe.conig
Can anyone tell me how to solve this problem?
is a week that I'm trying to understand what happens
by the time I solved by copying the configuration file at to the start of the application
but it's not good
the operating system is windows 7 and I just can not understand on what happens.
perhaps the first time, it was put configurator wrong in some cache
and when restart the PC overwrites the existing one.
I also removed the write permission to all users, including Administrator and System,
the problem remains
I can only assume that you are running this in Visual studio and regenerating the file when you restart your PC. Check all the settings in Visual Studio to see that it does not have a reference to the "wrong" name.
hi does anyone know how i can disable the animation which happens to a windows
form when the this.hide() is used?
I haven't tried it, but I guess it'd be the performance options of Windows. There's a setting in the system-page somewhere that let's the user decide between "cool" (animations, shades and stuff) and "fast" (no animation, no shades). Or to let Windows decide. AFAIK, it's a settting that would change the behaviour for ALL applications.
i am trying to do this without using thread.sleep.
Try clearing the .Controls collection and making the form 100% transparent. "Hide" it after that.

I need to develop a generic XMLEditor Form for an application (Windows Forms .Net 4.0).
The main concepts are:
- xsd definitions are known and stored as a resource
- form receives xml content string and the xsd name
- user must be able to edit (and add/delete) all of the xml attributes / values
Below is a sample of one of the xml content strings
<TechnicalCatalogInfo><Properties><Propertyid="1319"name="Some name"><![CDATA[Some text]]></Property><Propertyid="2715"name="Other name"><![CDATA[Some value]]></Property><Propertyid="2716"name="Another name"><![CDATA[One more value or text]]></Property></Properties></TechnicalCatalogInfo>
There are 3 or 4 different xml schemas and this form must be able to edit all of them.
Do you think that this can be done?
I am creating setup file with sql server database but i am facing an error...network elated error and i can't get the data from .mdf.deploy file...plz help me...it's my first project on windows based...
You mix up encoding and font. With modern .Net applications, you do not need to worry about non-ASCII-characters: .Net uses Unicode, and Malayalam is well defined there.
Probably, you are used to some encodings of the ISCII standards. Those ISCII encodings are 8bit encodings, and the text files written with such an encoding do not have the byte marks required to automatically find out the encoding. Consequently, when you show it in a text editor with the wrong "font" selected, it may look like Hindi/Devanagari or totally garbage. But by selecting the "font" of your text editor, you actually selected the encoding.
So just type your Malayalam text into the text boxes of your Windows forms application, it will work. Do not copy it from such an 8bit text file as described above!
