Yes, I did find the answer, I need to find the code, but the trick is under the image source it needed to point to an 'external' dll, but fill it in with it's own info. I'm on vacation right now so can't even look for the code that fixed it.

this is the comment that came with the answer above

"you cant get Globals.ThisAddIn.Application in non Addin project. To get application instance in non addin project you can use"

try pasting in the code with the Improve question link. We could see what you did and need to do.
bowlturner 8-Jul-14 14:03pm View
   
if it works in notepad, I would guess the focus just isn't in the right place?
bowlturner 8-Jul-14 14:01pm View
   
I've seen answers saying you need row.AcceptChanges() and some saying you don't. Give a try?
bowlturner 6-Jun-14 9:01am View
   
It all depends on how you implement it. if you have a text box (or something similar) to filer the list as the user types, allowing them to see immediately the changes, as long as you are not removing the focus of the input they can quickly change what they are looking for as well as see what they are filtering on.
bowlturner 5-Jun-14 13:56pm View
   
why don't you just use a filter on the datasource?

Sorry I was looking in the Mark up and didn't see it there. formatting threw me off. I'll look some more.

Where is you're ddlCopyStatus defined? It's not displayed.
bowlturner 31-Jan-14 11:54am View
   
no, you don't. you are setting the dateTo value in the 'else if' statement. You need to do the check BEFORE you do the convert or you may get exceptions.
bowlturner 31-Jan-14 11:27am View
   
you are on the right track but change the 2nd line to

DateTime dateTo;
bowlturner 31-Jan-14 11:09am View
   
you need to do the test for null or empty BEFORE you try to convert. I'll modify my answer
bowlturner 31-Jan-14 10:59am View
   
If someone is typing in a date, it starts as a string somewhere. You need to check if the string is null or empty before you try to convert it to a date. Then using DateTime.TryParse can try to parse the input string without throwing and error.
bowlturner 31-Jan-14 10:49am View
   
Well your code is off a little. 'dateFrom' is not declared anywhere in the code you posted. Give us the actual code and error and we can give better solutions.
bowlturner 31-Jan-14 10:16am View
   
no problem
bowlturner 29-Jan-14 9:16am View
   
Good catch, apparently it's still to early in the morning for me.
bowlturner 28-Jan-14 15:11pm View
   
At what point do you want to get the value?
bowlturner 28-Jan-14 13:30pm View
   
web apps, win forms and wpf are all a little different. but you bind a property to a column.

if you have a list of objects you can start with

dataGridView1.DataSource = MyListOfObjects;

and then something like this (which happens to be markup)

<columns>
<asp:BoundField DataField="EID" HeaderText="ID" />
bowlturner 28-Jan-14 9:04am View
   
is the text box big enough to display the whole string?
bowlturner 27-Jan-14 15:05pm View
   
If you're still having that problem, you'll need to post more code, there is nothing inherently wrong with what is posted.
bowlturner 23-Jan-14 12:41pm View
   
Are you sure many to many? I mean can there be circular references? A is child of B who is child of C who has A as child?
bowlturner 23-Jan-14 8:52am View
   
I took a closer look, you are calling the pop up every time, not just when there is data in the textboxes.
bowlturner 22-Jan-14 14:26pm View
   
No problem, sorry didn't do a better job.
bowlturner 22-Jan-14 14:10pm View
   
I've done this before, but it's been long enough I can't remember what I'm missing. You could always try turning visible on and off too... :)
bowlturner 22-Jan-14 13:34pm View
   
Do you need to set the CollapsedSize="0"?

and yes, I turn bowls on a lathe to relieve stress. It's very effective.
bowlturner 22-Jan-14 13:18pm View
   
Doh! Missed it. .Equals is a comparison operator, not an assignment.

you need equationPanelExtender.Collapsed = false;

Added more to the solution above.

I added more my answer. Hope it helps.

Then I would guess it's permissions somehow. It is also possible that the user you are connecting as doesn't have 'sqlbuldcopy' permissions.
bowlturner 20-Jan-14 9:09am View
   
My first guess would be you don't have read/write access to the file you are trying to copy.
bowlturner 20-Jan-14 9:03am View
   
I found some code that might help. Added it to the solution.

you can put them in the session to keep them.

While anything is possible, I think it is likely a waste of your time. You would be trying to circumvent in place security.

then create a connection to the db, create an insert command with parameters you need, loop through the XML parse the values into the parameters fields and run the insert command

Ok, can you add some of the code you are trying to use?
bowlturner 16-Jan-14 10:08am View
   
Sorry not a clue what you are asking to do. try 'Improve question'?
bowlturner 16-Jan-14 10:06am View
   
My question is why you have to lists of values that are related? Why don't you have an object that holds the Faculty and their ID in one object?

class factulty
{
public string Name {get; set;}
public string Id {get; set;}
public object photo {get; set}
}

then you only need one list and don't have to worry about them getting out of sync.
bowlturner 16-Jan-14 10:01am View
   
WPF is a completely different paradigm to windows forms. I wouldn't expect any windows forms controls to work the same in WPF. WPF has many of it's own controls and usually has an even better way to do what ever you want from a Windows form control.
bowlturner 16-Jan-14 9:53am View
   
does the process have write access to the path you are trying to save to?

nice zen reply.

When you have a question to answer, feel free to ask.
bowlturner 9-Jan-14 16:46pm View
   
No, you want me to download your code, create a project, compile it and debug it for you. You have already run it and found bugs. Why can't you tell us what they are?

"row and column gives the error." is not helpful.
bowlturner 9-Jan-14 16:39pm View
   
Yes it is. And ones like that usually need someone else to embarrass you with them. Glad I could help!
bowlturner 9-Jan-14 16:06pm View
   
as I said before it's not my job to compile your code. YOU compile it find the error and tell us what it is. Or what behavior is happening that isn't supposed to be etc. That is the minimum expectation for someone to help you with your homework.
bowlturner 9-Jan-14 15:34pm View
   
I am NOT compiling your code. YOU run it, and tell us what the error is. And it ain't MY error.
bowlturner 9-Jan-14 15:33pm View
   
If you want help you need to tell us what is wrong, not 'there are still mistakes' or 'I have error'.
bowlturner 9-Jan-14 15:26pm View
   
Mind posting the actual error? because my solution did fix a bug. But since I don't know what is broke, I can't help fix it.

I was wondering why you need 3 lists to kept in sync? Why not make an object that holds the three values and put that in a list?
bowlturner 9-Jan-14 9:06am View
   
I will! ;)
bowlturner 8-Jan-14 17:33pm View
   
You can do that with a datagrid. Look at the Column Templates, you can have it be editable all the times. The default value isn't but there are lots of ways around that.

I find it interesting when the actual answer to question is down-voted. Is it just so someone else's 'solution' will float to the top? This is the 2nd or 3rd time this week it's happened. Why would this deserve a 2?

you can give me a 5 star on my answer and/or mark click the 'Accept Solution' button.

Glad I helped some, more importantly glad you got it to work!. I was afraid it might involve something like your final solution, but there is no way I would have been able to talk you through it.

Well your choices are to format your aspx page to look pretty, or implement a report of some kind, generate a PDF or use some other report generator. The simplest is to format your aspx, if it's a grid generating a .CSV might work, otherwise it's a bit more work to add others. I used to use PDFSharp to generate PDF reports.
bowlturner 8-Jan-14 9:20am View
   
What do you mean? the user should be able to print the page, you can even give them a 'Print' button to press. What am I missing?

Interesting. I agree it is a privileges thing but this is not my area of expertise. If I was looking over your shoulder I might see the problem, but as it is...
bowlturner 7-Jan-14 16:37pm View
   
To the best of my knowledge I think you still have to do an update or an insert. You can try an update and if there are zero rows affected you can then do an insert. That is what I tend to do.
bowlturner 7-Jan-14 14:59pm View
   
New thought. I am thinking that the 'user' the process is running under doesn't have access to the T: drive. Do you know who/what it is running as? Find out (I think you can through the Task Manager) and make sure that account has access to the T: drive. At this point that makes the most sense to me. You as the admin have access, but the process doesn't.
bowlturner 7-Jan-14 14:27pm View
   
You seem to be asking several different questions. use the improve question link and give us some more to work with. What is the first piece you need?
bowlturner 7-Jan-14 14:24pm View
   
if it's mapped and accessible, it is shared. Right click on the T: drive and go to properties. In Windows 7 there is a DFS tab. it will show you the UNC path, you might also ask the server administrator for it as well.
bowlturner 7-Jan-14 13:44pm View
   
By the way, that will only give you the average if and only if the total possible points is always 300.
bowlturner 7-Jan-14 10:20am View
   
no while the IP can work I wouldn't use it. Use the name of the server and the share path. Look up in the properties of the share at the path. \\ServerName\Share

I suspect that after you add the row programatically you need to rebind the datagrid to the datasource.

Just realized something. Most of my Lambda is using objects, so I missed this. I think you might need to use .Join to join the Friendship table to the user table using userid = createid before the where clause.

true, but if you have a large object with many properties and extra validation etc. this becomes a staging area, and it makes it easier for the user to change their mind before updating the db.

yes it would be code redundancy if you did that. If String1-3 are really the same for all three objects then it might be wise to have a My3Strings object be inherited by My5Strings and My7Strings.

I would certainly hope you don't have a generic object with any of these names we are using for explanation purposes.

I suspect there is, I don't know how, but I suspect you are barking up the completely wrong tree in your design. The way databases work it seems rather pointless to me to do what you are trying to do. If I knew more I might suggest a better design/approach.

I guess I'm trying to understand why a server is going to have multiple oracle databases installed. Why does the list need to be dynamic? Really what is the purpose of all this since all the things I can think of this seems like a strange way to do anything.

Like how can you dynamically create a connection string to a database that you have 'found' on a server? Unless you have no real security, you'll have to at least get a username and password from the user. There are also many different tools already out there to manage dbs so I just come up with more and more questions of what the reason is for this 'need'.

Why don't you just put the list of databases into an App.config file? Do you really need a dynamic list of actual databases? Most places have only a couple actual databases and many different schema's on each database.

What are you really trying to do? If you created actual oracle databases you should already know what the names are. Why do you need 2 databases? How come you are creating these databases if you don't appear to know what you are doing? I think we need more information.

In Oracle, each 'dba_user' in a specific database is a 'Schema' and can have tables and other DDL objects. Most databases have more 'users' than working schema's. The only way to get this from a database is Querying the database, this requires SQL.

In oracle different databases is a different thing and will need a separate connection for each one.

Sorry, thought it was a possibility.

Are you leaving transaction without a rollback or commit? It might be trying to close the connection but is in a deadlock state?

I've tried learning Regex and I never seem to do them right. I do really appreciate the link to Expresso! Much appreciated.

Thanks for the clarification

is this for .aspx, win forms, wpf? In WPF the tab works for me without having to catch anything.

Awesome! Thanks, I was so close, but close doesn't cut with regex.

I decided to go with this approach and it does work just fine. Thanks for the help.

The problem is that both files (the ResourceDictionary and the .png I'm trying to reference) are in the same project/assembly/dll and using a dll reference doesn't appear to work, since at the time of compiling, the dll I'm trying to reference doesn't yet exist.

So as I pointed out, I'd have to split my current project into 2 separate projects (2 dlls) to make it work that way and I'd rather not if I can help it.

If I am missing something your trying to tell me please try again. I would love a solution where the XAML and the images reside in the same project.

It's on the right track. I'm doing basically that for the ResourceDictionary. The problem is the resourcedictionary when compiling is pointing correctly at the right image directory, but when it is being referenced in the calling application it is looking for the Image in a place relative to the calling app, not the dll where it resides.

I could use the link but I would have to create another project just to hold my resources so the Resoucedictionary dll could reference it as a separate assembly. While this could work, it is less than ideal since it adds another dll I need to track.

So this is all in one assembly.

Throws the exception I listed above.

'System.Windows.Setter' threw an exception.'

I also used the the commented out line in place of the "Source = new..."

The files are in the same project. The project has a DLL as an output, not an application. That is what I was trying to convey.

Both lines give me the same error. I'm just wondering what would be the correct uri to put in there in this situation. The commented out line has the URI that works for my app that uses the DLL so I didn't have a lot of hope there but tried it anyway.

I've yet to use a ValuleConverter. How would you suggest I go about it? I think that is sending me on the right track.
bowlturner 21-Aug-13 11:32am View
   
I tried your code and I had someone else send me a working example of code. I'm pretty sure that somewhere in my code is something preventing me from binding correctly. I gave up and used a datagrid and it is working just fine. I liked your idea and tried to make it work. Unfortunately I think I have a subtle bug. I hope to eventually find it and fix it. But for now I'm moving on. Thanks for the help.

I've had others who've done similar things look at my code and not find what is wrong. So I've had some time to get back to this and I'm trying to implement this solution. However I don't know what you mean by

You then use a template selector / a style on the list which applies this data template when a row is selected (no point having all the controls displayed if it is view mode not edit).

One, they will always be editable when shown and any changes will be saved so I don't need to be too fancy. What I really don't understand is why I can't get the combo boxes to bind to my Observable collections AT ALL. The dropdowns are always empty no matter how I try to do the binding. Binding outside the listview works just fine though.

Gahh!

OK, I've finally been able to get back to this. Have been working on a couple other areas that needed it. I understand what you have there. It's creating new xaml to integrate everything where I might have problems. Thanks for the help. I'll let you know if this fixes my problem.

Mostly, but I suspect I'm breaking some of the 'rules'. I understand the basic concepts but haven't had any formal training on MVVM.
bowlturner 6-Aug-13 11:12am View
   
That would be awesome. I wasn't paying attention, the ComboBox would be just fine to use as well. May even be more appropriate. Thanks in advance for the help!
bowlturner 6-Aug-13 10:55am View
   
Yes that is the idea. However, we currently are not planning to let the users have an 'or'. Our database can be brought to it's knees with a poorly used 'or'.

Otherwise yes that is what I want to build. The problem is I don't have any examples of how to have the listview with listboxes inside each row all bound correctly.
bowlturner 5-Aug-13 8:53am View
   
Thanks, but that is where I got a bit of my code I'm currently using. So, no, my answer isn't in there.

I can but that part appears to be working correctly. The only problem I have with this one is I can't actually click on the textbox after validation has occurred.
