Hiding the selection in a CheckedListBox

  • 1. Error: "No parameterless constructor defined for this object."
    Hi, I am trying to invoke as like below. Form frmChild = (Form) Activator.CreateInstance (typeInstance); frmChild.MdiParent = _parentForm; frmChild.StartPosition = FormStartPosition.CenterScreen; frmChild.Show(); When I invoke a form it works fine after frmchild is shown it is giving error saying "No parameterless constructor defined for this object.". But still works. Catch is when i again invoke some child frm from frmChild it throws again "No parameterless constructor defined for this object." and fails to load any form. But when i remove mdiparent property it works fine. That is not the soultion i want. I want all the forms inside MDI application. There is no clue or solution soo far. Hope someone can share some light on this problem. Best Regards, Sachi

Hiding the selection in a CheckedListBox

Postby Jared » Mon, 05 Feb 2007 13:31:45 GMT

Is it possible to do away with the "selected" appearance of an item in
a CheckedListBox (v1.1)?  When I click an item, its background turns
blue and its text turns white.  I want the checkbox to toggle (which
it currently does), but I don't want the list item to appear

You can try handling SelectedIndexChanged event and clearing the
selection there. This got rid of the selection after the click for me,
but there still was a temporary selection that flashed as you click
the checkbox. This code just removes it immediately.

private void checkedListBox1_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender,
EventArgs e)
	int index = checkedListBox1.SelectedIndex;
	if(index > -1)
		checkedListBox1.SetSelected(index, false);
		checkedListBox1.SetItemChecked(index, !

Thanks Clay, that works pretty well.  I had to eliminate
SetItemChecked() or the checkbox would never change state.  Looks like
SetSelected() was exactly what I needed.

2."Hide Selection" - can this be remembered?

I really like the "Hide Selection" feature in .NET; my only complaint is 
that if I save the code and then return to it at a later date, all my 
hidden items are unhidden, and I manually have to go thru the hiding 
process again.

Is there a way to have it remember that certain blocks of code were 
hidden between coding sessions?

Ideally, I'd like to be able to have a bit of code like this:

   'Does the folder exist?  If not, create it
   If Not (Dir.Exists(MyPath)) Then
   End If
   'Now, copy all the files from the old folder to the new folder
   {more code below this point}

and concatenate it to:

   'Does the folder exist?  If not, create it[...]
   'Now, copy all the files from the old folder to the new folder[...]

and have it remember that concatenation between sessions.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

4.Combobox does not hide selection

I added a lot of myComboBox controls to form.
Every combobox shows all its content selected.
Selection is removed only when I tab off from the control.

How to hide selection initially?
There is not HideSelection property in Combobox.


 class myComboBox : ComboBox {
  internal myComboBox(DataRow dr, DataTable table) {
   DisplayMember = "DisplayMember";
   ValueMember = "ValueMember";
   DataSource = lookup.GetPickList();
   DataBindings.Add("SelectedValue", table,
   AutoCompleteSource = AutoCompleteSource.ListItems;
   AutoCompleteMode = AutoCompleteMode.SuggestAppend;

5.Hide Selection

I've been moving between VB.NET and C# .NET and have found many annoyances
with the editor using C#.  The latest is that I cannot seem to be able to
use the Hide (Edit, Outlining, Hide Selection).  I know I can use regions,
but for temporary collapsing it is much easier in VB.NET because you can use
use CTRL+M+CTRL+H and not have to go back and delete the region.  Any ideas?

Microsoft, please have someone oversee consistency...
