Posts I've Made

  1. In Topic: WPF Binding List to ComboBox

    Posted 1 Oct 2014

    Adding to the list does not raise a notification event because the object itself was not replaced/changed: Its still the same List<> object. This is why for WPF we use/make Bindable collection objects.

    This is probably keeping the GUI from updating.
    You might want to raise the INotifyPropertyChanged event yourself, after adding to the list

    27  LoggedUsers.Add(tmp);
    28  LoggedUsers.Add(returned);
    29  RaisePropertyChanged("LoggedUsers");

    If you aren't inheriting from INotifyPropertyChanged and/or don't have a method for raising that event check out my tutorial on properties linked in my signature block.

    Ran across this as well, it might help, might not... Honestly I didn't study it too closely.
  2. In Topic: Need help editing a parent dialog box without closing the child

    I didn't ask to be taught C#, and I didn't ask for a lesson on parent/child forms.

    Then you're hanging out in a pretty strange corner of the internet for someone not looking to learn C#, and asking odd questions for someone not wanting to learn about parent/child forms.

    You might need to come grips with the idea that you aren't going to find pages of data custom tailored to your precise needs and homework, but instead might have to actually learn C# (which you say you aren't looking to do) in order to complete your C# assignments. The simple fact is there aren't a billion pages out there that exactly match your exact question every time you stuck. You're going to have to take the time to read a tutorial and then *extract* the portion of it that applies to your situation.
  3. In Topic: Vector animation

    Posted 1 Oct 2014

    WinForms can host a WPF control, just as WPF can host a WinForms control. Its not ideal, but if your code is at all decently designed and modular you should be able to swap out one control for the other with minimal code changes - and without all your other developers having to move out of the dark ages.

    Not to mention it would be a way to make your code the modern stuff and show that it might be time to work on a modern version that targets modern OSes, while putting you ahead of the rest of the team in the eyes of your bosses.


    our program is already of tens of forms,

    That really doesn't make sense. Is it a web forum based program? Could you possibly mean:
    "our program is already on tons of forums" ??

    Have you set the datacontext?

    Tried that,
    Ok. Show us where and how you are setting the DataContext. If that is failing its the same as not having any context.

    Usually binding just uses a List of Strings/Int's or an instance of an Object right?

    Wrong. Binding, like most things in C# and WPF is always to OBJECTS. If your object happens to be a string, well cool. But if it is not a string then code will display the ToString() of the object. If you didn't write a ToString() then C# will do its best to make one up either through inheritance or eventually falling back to just spitting out the object type as a string. So if you are providing a list of Users you might see the entries as:

    Because you haven't provided a way for your code to know it should really provide the string:
    Smith, John Q.

    by putting together the various name properties in the order you want.
  5. In Topic: Vector animation

    Posted 1 Oct 2014

    Are you still coding in 1980's WinForms? If so it would be worth your time to move to WPF. WPF is all vector based for all of its GUI. Everything scales nicely and smoothly. All of the drawing is actually DirectX under the hood, but the developer (you) aren't forced to interact with it directly. There is complete support for 3D, rotation of objects etc.

    Am I just blind, or is there no link on a person's profile page to their blog? That's silly.

    Yep. They are coding on a "Whole 'nother level" above my last employer. Makes me feel like like I'm in the special slow learners group. But that's a nice side effect of new environments: They make you stretch past your comfort zone and learn new techniques.

    01aug13: I've changed employers and no longer working at home. So I won't be answering posts in real-time through out the work day. Don't take this as disinterest in the site. Its just I can't do that from a new office as a new employee. So its nights and weekends for me.

    I need to run through them and clean them up, stitch panoramas together etc. Shot about 700 frames. I'll keep maybe 50 at most. 10% or little less is about average.

    Back from vacation. I was away for nearly a month (if anyone noticed). But Alaska was beautiful.

    Thanks! I see the voting is closed.
    I had to laugh when I saw I was even on the "nicest member" list - Everyone knows I'm the brutally honest old man LOL.
