  • 1. Visual Inheritance classic, but gets mixed up
    Hi, I'm using the following visual inheritance classic: base form with two buttons 'apply' and 'cancel' anchored to the bottom right corner. You inherit this base form and resize the inherited form, the buttons move along. At least most of the time, sometimes the buttons do not anchor to the borders of the inherited form but appear at a random other location on the form. A workaround is to remove the code this.ClientSize = new System.Drawing.Size(529, 312); from the inherited form and resize it in the designer to its original specs. Does a solution exist, instead of this workaround ? Best regards, Nico
  • 2. Upgrading DataGrid to DataGridView - CaptionText
    I am trying to upgrade some existing code to use the new DataGridView and the code makes use of the CaptionText property of the DataGrid control. What would be the equivalent in the DataGridView control?
  • 3. smart client timer download
    Got from a website: "A Smart Client app will download the DLL to the client machine. The client DLL can be refreshed on a timer or manually. At all times the client application works with the local copy." Where does the timer reside(i guess server) and does it require user to take any action in this case or it happens automatically at specified time? TIA, Sanjeev
  • 4. How do I set form equal to nothing?
    Check this out: [VS 2005 .NET 2.0] Start a new project, drop a button on form1. Add a form (form2). In the button1 click event on form1, add the following... ....... If My.Forms.Form2 Is Nothing Then My.Forms.Form2.Show() End If ....... Taken directly from sample code. This will only run once and Form2 can never be shown again. I like the idea here, but how do I get it to behave correctly?

I can't find a drawing toolbox in windows forms - how can I draw lines,
squares, circles etc on my form surface ?

Go take a look at the examples in the GDI+ FAQ.

All I want to do is draw a dividing line to visually separate two areas of
my form. Seems odd that I have to delve into GDI+ to do it !

In fact I've managed to draw lines using Label controls with a height or
width of 1 and a single line border. But this isn't exactly a tidy way to do
it !

1.Drawing Toolbox?

I suspect it is right in front of me, but I can't seem to find it. Is there 
a toolbox with things like lines, rectangles, etc that I can drop onto a 
form in design view?
Thanks, Steve
