Get rid of the pixels

Visual Studio .Net


  • 1. Build command didn't recognise file changes for embedded resource.
    I am using VS.Net 2003 and have a solution with Executable and Setup projects. Among others Executable Project has text file included as "embedded resource". Isually I execute "Build" command from Setup Project context menu to generate MSI for installation on a testing machine. I've noticed that if the only change was in "embedded resource" file, VS.Net doesn't notice the change of file and doesn't create new version of executable. So old copy of "embedded resource" is copied to the testing machine. It took me couple hours to understand this. Fortunutely, "Rebuild" action fixes the problem. I am wondering is it a known bug or it's happened only on my machine and caused by some settings of my solution? Michael Freidgeim.
  • 2. Output window update
    Hi, I develop an add-in for Visual Studio .NET 2003 which writes some messages in the output window during a treatment. My problem is that the messages are written only when the treatment is finished whereas I would like that they are written during the treatment like the compilation messages. Thanks for your help.
  • 3. Design Time Exceptions annoy me!
    Design Time Exceptions, are only shown as a little entry in the task list (something like "Null Referece Exception" but, it is imposible to know the real problem without the stacktrace (and there is no way of getting it)

Get rid of the pixels

I am trying to create a ASPX page using VS.NET. I notice that when it
generates a table or image it uses px instead of percent to set the
size property. Is there a way to force VS.NET to use percent?

1.getting rid of empty statement


This must be almost the level of Daily WTF but my mind is totally
blocked with this one.

First, I have a list of interfaces

private List<IFlowImplementation> flowImpl;

In this list lies interfaces of type IFlowImplementation and
IGuidingImplentation is derived from IFlowImplementation, like this:

public interface IGuidingImplementation : IFlowImplementation

Now, I have this dumb piece of code:

foreach (IFlowImplementation fi in flowImpl)
                if (fi is IGuidingImplementation)

What above code does (and it does it correctly) is, It loops thru a
list of interfaces and calls ScrollLeft() on each interface that is not
of type IGuidingImplementation. Obviously I want to GET RID of that
unnecessary empty statement ";".

So folks, how to do it? And remember that one can't use this...

foreach (IGuidingImplementation gi in flowImpl)

...because there'll be a run-time casting error when the first
non-IGuidingImplementation is reached.


2.Getting rid of stored procedures

3.Getting rid f objects left open by webservice

I have a web service that calls a COM object. When the service is
called it leaves copies of the COM object running on the server.

Reading through the newsgroup I see tantalizing hints at methods like
Close and Dispose but that's all they are. What are they methods /of/?
I've so far failed to find any meaningful clues on MSDN either

I've tried putting Dispose(); in both the service code and the caller
code but to no avail.

Can someone tell me the whole of the spell needed to make my unwanted
objects go away please?

4.Getting rid of web parts

Hello there,

I have a problem which has got me really scratching my head trying to
figure out what is going on.

I have a page enabled for web parts where users can add, remove and
edit web parts that I have constructed. The problem lies in removing
web controls from the page. When the user clicks on the Close verb for
a web part, the control is removed and I now have a blank page -
everything appears on the surface to be OK. However, if I put a
breakpoint on my web part control in OnInit the method still fires
even though the control is no longer present on the page. The page is
completely empty, yet the control's code is still firing. If I add a
second control then remove it using the Close verb, the OnInit fires
twice on my empty page!

If I switch the trace on for the page and look at the Control Tree, I
can see that my control is present under the web part manager:

-- ctl00$mainContent$WebPartManager1

Can anyone shed any light as to what is happening here? When the user
closes a control I want it to completely vanish from the page until
such time as they add another instance from the catalog. Why does my
control's code still fire when it is no longer present/visible on the

Potentially useful facts:
I have my own PersonalizationProvider class but this is calling to the
standard SQL server tables and sprocs.
I have subclassed the WebPartPartManager but have only added a couple
of custom properties.
I have sub-classed the WebPartZone in order to control which verbs are
displayed etc
Other than this problem everything else seems to work just fine.

Many thanks in advance for any insight into what is going on here.

5.Getting rid of error message

I have the following validation code which is working well besides if
I I don't select a summary level I will get the error then when I
select one I go to the next page.  When I hit the back button I have
the error message please select summary level again.  How do I get rid
of that or is there another way I can do radion button validation?

Dim strMessage As String

        If RadioBtnAll.Checked = False And RadioBtnRib.Checked = False
And RadioBtnDib.Checked = False And RadioBtnSpouse.Checked = False

            strMessage = "Please Select Report"

        End If

        If RadioBtnNat.Checked = False And RadioBtnRgn.Checked = False
And RadioBtnArea.Checked = False And RadioBtnDoc.Checked = False Then

            strMessage = "Please Select Summary Level"

        End If

        Dim strScript As String = "<script language=JavaScript>"

        strScript += "alert(""" & strMessage & """);"

        strScript += "</script>"

        If (Not Page.IsStartupScriptRegistered("clientScript")) Then

        End If

        Page.RegisterStartupScript("clientScript", strScript)

    End Sub
