I played around with it some time back and it looked pretty promising.
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore, Dream. Discover.
I did configure the Symbol LS3408 scanner to be a USB scanner, not a keyboard.
This was not my question. The question was, if anyone has made some C# code, that gets the reading from an USB barcode scanner. I know there are solutions out there, where you get the reading as a keyboard input. I don't want that.
Your best bet would be to download the Scanner SDK from here[^]. Using someone else's code is going to be problematic at best as their code is going to make assumptions about the scanner that do no apply to your situation.
i have a listview control in my winRT application and, when the user taps a tile, i´d like to save the previously selectedIndex.
i can´t find an appropriate eventhandler to achieve this;
i only found SelectionChanged-event, but, as one might guess, at this particular time the Event is already fired and i retrieve only the new selected index...
can anyone please Point me to the right direction... eh, to the right Event ?
and - if someone knows where to get an elaborated overview for the LifeCycle - as known form ASP.NET pages - that would be highly appreciated...
Hmm... Can you just look for a similar event in the XAML-control?
Another solution could be that you have a second variable where your current index is stored... You would have to update this variable manually and it would end up kinda unclean but this could be the emergency-solution.
sorry for replying late....
first of all: thank you for your help.
I´ve found several events (ItemClick, Tapped etc) but none of them seem to suit.
your second suggestion leads me back to my initial question:
where to save the old index...?
I wonder what the softie´s intention was when they decided not to implement a SelectedIndex_Changing in addition to SelectedIndex_Changed.
that would solve the issue perfectly...
That´s also a good idea, but I have already solved the problem, I think, I´ll leave it at that.
it now works the way it should, that´s sufficient for me!
Thank you again for your help!
ok, finally I got it...
it´s more like right through the chest into the eye, but now it works...
a healthy mixture of ListView.SelectedIndex_Change and Grid.GotFocus did the trick for me; now I can save the old AND the new index....
thanks to marco for his suggestions!
I can´t find the checkbox for marking my thread as solved...
I guess i´m blind...
Greetings all - I haven't posted here in ages I am entirely new to .Net having been working in it for a week at most so please go easy and be detailed as possible
I have the following PONO:
Private intTrackingNumber AsIntegerPrivate intDateReceived AsIntegerPrivate strManufacturer AsStringPublicProperty TrackingNumber() AsIntegerGetReturn intTrackingNumber
intTrackingNumber = value
EndSetEndPropertyPublicProperty DateReceived() AsStringGet' TODO: Convert timestamp to formatted dateReturn intDateReceived
' TODO: Convert formatted date to timestamp
intDateReceived = value
The issue I am faced with is how to store date/time as a timestamp (integer) but provide public properties which format/convert accordingly.
I suppose I could provide a an additional getter()/setter() but ideally I wonder if EF has a way of circumventing this "convention"?
Additionally - I am also curious as to whether it's possible to map properties to columns which are not labeled correctly?
Basically if I were working in a existing database (EF automatically builds my PONO with properties named after table fields) I wish to name the fields something more meaningful; some fields for example might be awkward abbreviations but in the object model I want something more English friendly?
I seem to recall being able to do this with Hibernate in java (actually it's PHP port) but never the less does EF support such a feature? Seems obvious that this would be useful in day to day development???
I just found some articles that explain how to change the mapping for tables so I imagine columns are just around the corner.
When I say timestamp I mean a unix timestamp which can easily be converted to date AND/OR time - not sure what MSDN is getting at?!?
In the database I wish to store the date "10/10/2013" as 1381381200 but convert to a human friendly date within the PONO.
My entity objects are high level abstractions but I still prefer to store the time in a numeric format - how does EF solve/address this type mis-match? This is/was the impetus behind OR/M frameworks ain't it?
Ah, OK - "timestamp" in SQL is something totally different.
I don't think there's any built-in way to perform this sort of conversion in the mapping layer. The simplest approach is probably to add a calculated property for the date, decorated with the NotMapped attribute:
