clock July 26, 2019 11:08 by author Peter

Hi, I want to download a pdf file form silverlight application , the pdf file is in a folder in my solution , i want to give the path of the pdf to the method and it should download the pdf to the local system. i am happy to say that i achieved it with the following code:
SaveFileDialog dialog = new SaveFileDialog();
                dialog.Filter = "pdf Files|*.pdf";
                dialog.DefaultFileName = "BeneficiaryDesignation.pdf";
                if (dialog.ShowDialog() ?? false)
                {


                    WebClient webClient = new WebClient();
                    webClient.OpenReadCompleted += (s, e2) =>
                    {
                        try
                        {
                            using (Stream fs = (Stream)dialog.OpenFile())
                            {
                                e2.Result.CopyTo(fs);
                                fs.Flush();
                                fs.Close();

                        }
                    };
                    string str = App.Current.Host.Source.AbsoluteUri;
                    string path = App.appConfiguration.GetPDFPath("BeneficiaryDesignation.pdf");
                    str = str.Replace("/ClientBin/ProjectDemo.xap", path);                    
                   
                    webClient.OpenReadAsync(new Uri(str), UriKind.RelativeOrAbsolute);

Silverlight 5 Hosting France - HostForLIFE.eu :: Create an Exception Logger in Silverlight

clock June 21, 2019 11:42 by author Peter

In this post I'll describe the way to handle the exceptions in Silverlight. Whereas running the Silverlight application, if any exception happens it'll attend Silverlight.js and show within the internet explorer as a javascript error. Within the debugging purpose of read typically it's cumbersome to see wherever truly the exception happened.

LogWindow.xaml
This is an easy user control that has an easy textbox:
<TextBox
AcceptsReturn="True"
TextAlignment="Left"
TextWrapping="NoWrap"
VerticalScrollBarVisibility="Visible"
x:Name="logText"
FontFamily="Courier New"
FontSize="12" IsReadOnly="True" HorizontalScrollBarVisibility="Auto" />

Logger.cs
This class are used to print the exception and notice the stacktrace. it's an enum for the exception types viz. DEBUG,INFO,WARN,ERROR and FATAL.This class contains an easy delegate to add text to the log window.
The static property _instance is about by the LogWindow.xaml.cs go in the load event as:
Logger._instance = logText;
So that it will print whatever exception happenes in your application. The LogException methodology expects exception object because the parameter and find the exception information using the StackFrame class.

StackFrame frame = new StackFrame(true);
callerSignature =  string.Format("@{0}:{1}:{2}", frame.GetMethod(), frame.GetFileName(), frame.GetFileLineNumber());


To use this method in your catch block you just simply need to call the static method as:
Catch(Exception ex)
{
Logger.LogException(ex);
}

Hope this tutorial works for you!



Silverlight 6 Hosting - HostForLIFE.eu :: Print Document In Silverlight

clock May 23, 2019 05:30 by author Peter

How we can print the document in a Silverlight application.

Step 1
We have the PrintDocument Class which defines a reusable object that sends output to a printer.
    PrintDocument
    The PrintDocument object encapsulates all the information needed to print a page. They associate with the control which content can be print. They handle the events and operations of printing.
    Namespace - System.Drawing.Printing.PrintDocument

    [C#]

    public class PrintDocument : Component

    
We can create an instance of the PrintDocument class, set the properties that describe how to print, and call the Print method to start the printing process. Handle the PrintPage event where you specify the output to print, by using the Graphics included in the PrintPageEventArgs.
    Associate control to Print document
        private void printDoc_PrintPage(object sender, PrintPageEventArgs e) { 
            // print current page 
            e.PageVisual = printPage; 
        } 


Step 2
Create one user control page name as PrintPage.Xaml and design header and footer in this user control page like as following.
    <Grid x:Name="LayoutRoot" Background="White"> 
        <Grid.RowDefinitions> 
            <RowDefinition Height="Auto" /> 
            <RowDefinition /> 
            <RowDefinition Height="Auto" /> 
        </Grid.RowDefinitions> 
        <!--Header--> 
        <Grid> 
            <TextBlock Text="HEADER" /> 
        </Grid> 
        <!--Body--> 
        <ItemsControl Name="BodyItemsControl" Grid.Row="1" Margin="0,24" /> 
        <ItemsControl Name="TemplateItemsControl"> 
            <ItemsControl.ItemTemplate> 
                <DataTemplate> 
                    <Grid> 
                        <Grid.ColumnDefinitions> 
                            <ColumnDefinition Width="Auto" /> 
                            <ColumnDefinition Width="Auto" /> 
                            <ColumnDefinition Width="*" /> 
                        </Grid.ColumnDefinitions> 
                        <TextBlock Text="{Binding ID}" Margin="2" /> 
                        <TextBlock Text=" - " Grid.Column="1" Margin="2" /> 
                        <TextBlock Text="{Binding Description}" Grid.Column="2" TextWrapping="Wrap" MaxWidth="500" HorizontalAlignment="Left" Margin="2" /> 
                    </Grid> 
                </DataTemplate> 
            </ItemsControl.ItemTemplate> 
        </ItemsControl> 
        <Grid Grid.Row="2"> 
            <TextBlock Text="FOOTER" /> 
        </Grid> 

Step 3
In MainPage.Xaml create an instance of PrintDocument like as following.
    public MainPage() { 
        InitializeComponent(); 
        this.Loaded += new RoutedEventHandler(MainPage_Loaded); 
    } 
    void MainPage_Loaded(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e) { 
        GetItems(); 
        printDoc.PrintPage += newEventHandler < PrintPageEventArgs > (printDoc_PrintPage); 
    } 
    //following items for printing. 
    privatevoid GetItems() { 
        for (int i = 0; i < 100; i++) { 
            items.Add(newItem() { 
                ID = i, 
                    Description = "This is Print Document " + i 
            }); 
        } 
    } 
    //Handling the event when we're printing: 
    private void printDoc_PrintPage(object sender, PrintPageEventArgs e) { 
        PrintPage printPage = new PrintPage(); 
        // print current page 
        e.PageVisual = printPage; 
        e.HasMorePages = true; 
        break; 
    } 
 

Step 4
Add a button to the MainPage.Xaml and print the document when the button is clicked,
    <Button Content="Button" Grid.Row="1" Height="23" HorizontalAlignment="Left" Margin="42,56,0,0" Name="button1" VerticalAlignment="Top" Width="75" Click="button1_Click" /> 
    private void Button_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e) 
    { 
        printDoc.Print("Printing A Page"); 
    } 


Step 5

Output look like as following,

Silverlight Hosting France - HostForLIFE.eu :: Use ScrollViewer Layout Panel in Silverlight

clock May 17, 2019 11:36 by author Peter

In this post allow us to understand how to use ScrollViewer panel Layout inside a Silverlight application. ScrollViewer is an additional layout container, that we don’t use constantly. It's chiefly useful showing contents in an exceedingly scrollable panel such as ListBox or Editor window. ListBox, TextBox, RichTextBox internally uses ScrollViewer to implement the scrolling functionality. Allow us to discuss the implementation in this post.

As usual, open up visual studio and choose Silverlight project. We will discover there's a Grid layout in your MainPage. xaml. Eliminate the default Grid layout and merely drag and drop the Stack panel Layout into our application. The code for this looks such as:
<StackPanel x:Name="LayoutRoot" > </StackPanel>

Inside the stack panel I am just defining 12 different rectangles.  And this is the code that I used:
<StackPanel x:Name="LayoutRoot" Orientation="Vertical" Width="100">
            <Rectangle Height="50" Width="100" Fill="Red" />
            <Rectangle Height="50" Width="100" Fill="Green" />
            <Rectangle Height="50" Width="100" Fill="Orange" />
            <Rectangle Height="50" Width="100" Fill="Tomato" />
            <Rectangle Height="50" Width="100" Fill="WhiteSmoke" />
            <Rectangle Height="50" Width="100" Fill="Green" />
            <Rectangle Height="50" Width="100" Fill="Blue" />
            <Rectangle Height="50" Width="100" Fill="Yellow" />
            <Rectangle Height="50" Width="100" Fill="Azure" />
            <Rectangle Height="50" Width="100" Fill="Gold" />
            <Rectangle Height="50" Width="100" Fill="Blue" />
            <Rectangle Height="50" Width="100" Fill="Violet" />
        </StackPanel>


In case we compile the above code as it's, we will notice all of the rectangles however no scroll bar result. Thus in an effort to get scroll bar effect we ought to put the above stack panel inside scroll viewer and ought to offer fixid width towards the scroll viewer. And this is the code snippet:
<ScrollViewer Height="200" >
        <StackPanel x:Name="LayoutRoot" Orientation="Vertical" Width="100">
            <Rectangle Height="50" Width="100" Fill="Red" />
            <Rectangle Height="50" Width="100" Fill="Green" />
            <Rectangle Height="50" Width="100" Fill="Orange" />
            <Rectangle Height="50" Width="100" Fill="Tomato" />
            <Rectangle Height="50" Width="100" Fill="WhiteSmoke" />
            <Rectangle Height="50" Width="100" Fill="Green" />
            <Rectangle Height="50" Width="100" Fill="Blue" />
            <Rectangle Height="50" Width="100" Fill="Yellow" />
            <Rectangle Height="50" Width="100" Fill="Azure" />
            <Rectangle Height="50" Width="100" Fill="Gold" />
            <Rectangle Height="50" Width="100" Fill="Blue" />
            <Rectangle Height="50" Width="100" Fill="Violet" />
        </StackPanel>
    </ScrollViewer>

Finally, Run the code and here is the result:



European Silverlight 6 Hosting HostForLIFE.eu :: How to access controls in DataGrid TemplateColumn header?

clock April 25, 2019 11:20 by author Peter

A data grid view is a rectangular control made of columns and rows. I have a DataGrid where I have included some controls in column header. Each column is a Template column. These controls appear just below the column header which are used for entering filter information. Here's the issue on my code on Silverlight 5.


VisualTreeHelper class helps to iterate through the visual tree of the xaml. Using it we can find the child and parent controls of the rendered controls. Lets check the Visual Tree of the rendered control using Silverlight Spy.

The Following Method do a search over the child controls with in a control recursively and returns the control based on Name.

private object GetChildControl(DependencyObject parent, string controlName)

    Object tempObj = null;
    int count = VisualTreeHelper.GetChildrenCount(parent);
    for (int counter = 0; counter < count; counter++)
    {
        //Get The Child Control based on Index
        tempObj = VisualTreeHelper.GetChild(parent, counter);
        //If Control's name Property matches with the argument control
        //name supplied then Return Control
        if ((tempObj as DependencyObject).GetValue(NameProperty).ToString() == controlName)
            return tempObj;
        else //Else Search Recursively
        {
            tempObj = GetChildControl(tempObj as DependencyObject, controlName);
            if (tempObj != null)
                return tempObj;
        }
    }
    return null;
}

Make sure that the same has to be delegated to UI thread using Dispatcher. As the controls created using UI Thread can not be accessed from other thread.
//Access the Grid Header Controls
Dispatcher.BeginInvoke(delegate
{
    var hyperlinkControl = GetChildControl(dataGrid1, "hlSort");
    var checkControl = GetChildControl(dataGrid1, "chkSelectAll");
});



European Silverlight 6 Hosting :: Retrieving Data in Silverlight: Where is my data?

clock March 27, 2019 09:46 by author Peter

So I was plugging right along in Silverlight using LINQ to asynchronously pull data from our database into my C# code. Everything was going great until I attempted to pull data from one table and its related tables all in one query. Here is what I found which resolved my data problem.

In my Library class I have the following code that enables my ASP.NET code to query a User by UserID and return a User object along with their UserFavorites and Illustration objects. This gives me everything I need to know about the user and their favorite illustrations.
public IQueryable<MyLibrary.User> GetUserByID(int userID)

{
    return myContext.Users.Include("UserFavorites").Include("UserFavorites.Illustration")
        .Where(u => u.UserID == userID);
}

In Silverlight I had a need to perform the same query using LINQ. After much searching on the web I found the two things that were needed to make this happen.
1. Use "Expand" instead of "Include"

2. Instead of "UserFavorites.Illustration" replace the "." with a "/" to get "UserFavorites/Illustration".

    int userID = 0;
    var qUser = ((DataServiceQuery<User>)(from myUser in service.Users
                  where myUser.UserID.Equals(userID)
                  select myUser))
                .Expand("UserFavorites")
                .Expand("UserFavorites/Illustration");

Now I have all of my data and I am happy once again. Using the Expand on my query is very nice in that I can get all of my data in one asynchronous call.

Silverlight 6 Hosting - HostForLIFE.eu :: Create an Analog Clock application in Silverlight

clock March 22, 2019 11:17 by author Peter

Today, I will explain you how to create an analog clock apps in Silverlight 6. Of course open new projectin visual studio and select a Silverlight project. In Mainpage.xaml  draw an ellipse which will serve as background for our Analog clock. The code looks as following:

 

<Grid x:Name="LayoutRoot" Background="White">
        <Ellipse Margin="165,67,145,83" Fill="Goldenrod" Width="330"
         Height="330" Opacity="0.7"/>
    </Grid>

Then, draw another ellipse in the same grid which will serve as Outer Rim for our analog clock. The Complete code looks on the below:
<Ellipse Height="330" Margin="156,58,154,92" Width="330" 
Stroke="Goldenrod">
            <Ellipse.Fill>
<LinearGradientBrush EndPoint="0.84,0.87" Opacity="0.9"  
StartPoint="0.164,0.129">
                    <GradientStop Color="Goldenrod"/>
                    <GradientStop Color="Gold" Offset="0.7"/>
                </LinearGradientBrush>
            </Ellipse.Fill>
        </Ellipse>              


Next, I want to draw another ellipse in the same grid which will serve as Bevel for our analog clock. And this is the code that I used:
        <Ellipse Height="290" Margin="156,58,154,92" Width="290" Stroke="Goldenrod">
            <Ellipse.Fill>
                    <LinearGradientBrush EndPoint="0.84,0.87" Opacity="0.5" StartPoint="0.164,0.129">
                    <GradientStop Color="Goldenrod"/>
                    <GradientStop Color="Goldenrod" Offset="0.987"/>
                </LinearGradientBrush>
            </Ellipse.Fill>
        </Ellipse>     

Now draw another ellipse in the same grid which will serve as a Face for our analog clock. This is the code snippet:
<Ellipse Height="270" Margin="176,78,174,112" Width="270"
         Stroke="Goldenrod" Fill="Yellow" Opacity="0.3"/>

Now we are going to draw the hour,minute and seconds hand. Then draw a rectangle in the same grid which will serve as a Hour hand for our analog clock with the code below:
<Rectangle x:Name="hourHand" Height="59" Margin="315.75,180,314.25,0"
        VerticalAlignment="Top" Fill="Black" Stroke="Black" Width="10" RenderTransformOrigin="0.525,1.428">
            <Rectangle.RenderTransform>
                <RotateTransform x:Name="hourHandAnimation"/>
            </Rectangle.RenderTransform>
        </Rectangle>


Now draw another rectangle in the same grid which will serve as a Minute hand for our analog clock. And this is the code that I used:
<Rectangle x:Name="minuteHand" Height="80" Margin="316.75,160,315.25,0"       
VerticalAlignment="Top" Fill="Black" Stroke="Black" Width="8"
        RenderTransformOrigin="0.5,1.312" >
            <Rectangle.RenderTransform>
                <RotateTransform x:Name="minuteHandAnimation"/>
            </Rectangle.RenderTransform>
        </Rectangle>

Now we are going to draw another rectangle in the same grid which will serve as a Seconds hand for our analog clock. And this is the code that I used:
<Rectangle Height="80" Margin="318.25,160,316.75,0"
        VerticalAlignment="Top" Fill="#FFFF0000" Stroke="#FF000000"
        Width="5" RenderTransformOrigin="0.10,1.312" >
            <Rectangle.RenderTransform>
                <RotateTransform x:Name="secondHandAnimation"/>
            </Rectangle.RenderTransform>
        </Rectangle>

Now, our design part is complete. Now we have to give animations to our hour, minute and second’s hands. For this, let us take a storyboard. We should write the code for storyboard outside the Grid.  The complete code for all the three animations is as follows.
<UserControl.Resources>
        <Storyboard x:Name="silverlightClock">
            <DoubleAnimation x:Name="hourAnimation"                            
                             Storyboard.TargetName="hourHandAnimation"
                             Storyboard.TargetProperty="Angle"
                             Duration="12:0:0" RepeatBehavior="Forever" To="360"/>          
            <DoubleAnimation x:Name="minuteAnimation"
                             Storyboard.TargetName="minuteHandAnimation"
                             Storyboard.TargetProperty="Angle"
                             Duration="1:0:0" RepeatBehavior="Forever"/>                                                                
            <DoubleAnimation x:Name="secondAnimation"                            
                             Storyboard.TargetName="secondHandAnimation"
                             Storyboard.TargetProperty="Angle"
                             Duration="0:1:0" RepeatBehavior="Forever"/>                                   
 </Storyboard>
 </UserControl.Resources>

Now we have to write the code for these 3 animations (hourAnimation, minuteAnimation  and secondAnimation ) in MainPage.xaml.cs. The code looks as follows.
private void startClock(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
        {
            System.DateTime currentTime = DateTime.Now;
double hourAngle = ((float)currentTime.Hour) / 12 * 360 +                 
currentTime.Minute/2;          
hourAnimation.From = hourAngle;
            hourAnimation.To = hourAngle + 360;         
           double minuteAngle = ((float)currentTime.Minute) / 60 * 360;
            minuteAnimation.From = minuteAngle;
            minuteAnimation.To=minuteAngle+360;
           double secondAngle = ((float)currentTime.Second) / 60 * 360;
            secondAnimation.From = secondAngle;
            secondAnimation.To = secondAngle + 360;
            silverlightClock.Begin();
        }                          

We need to call the method “startClock” in our grid control and assign it to “Loaded” property of the grid control. The code for this looks as follows.
  <Grid x:Name="LayoutRoot" Background="White" Loaded="startClock"> 
</Grid>


Finally! Our Analog clock is ready. Now you should refresh and see it.

European Silverlight 6 Hosting - Nederland :: Silverlight 5 Viewbox Control

clock March 15, 2019 09:45 by author Peter

This article will explore how to use the ViewBox control in Silverlight 6. The ViewBox control allows you to place a child control such as Image within it in such a way that it will be scaled appropriately to fit the available without any distortion. It is typically used in 2D graphics.

We will begin with creating a new Silverlight 6 project. Modify the existing XAML code of MainPage.xaml so that a Grid of 1 column and three rows is created. The code for the same is shown below:

<UserControl x:Class="SilverlightDemo.MainPage"
    xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"
    xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"
    xmlns:d="http://schemas.microsoft.com/expression/blend/2008"
    xmlns:mc=http://schemas.openxmlformats.org/markup-compatibility/2006 mc:Ignorable="d" xmlns:sdk=http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation/ sdk HorizontalAlignment="Stretch" VerticalAlignment="Stretch">
    <Grid x:Name="LayoutRoot" Background="White" Height="300" Width="300">
        <Grid.ColumnDefinitions>
            <ColumnDefinition Width="200" />
        </Grid.ColumnDefinitions>
        <Grid.RowDefinitions>
            <RowDefinition Height="Auto" />
            <RowDefinition Height="Auto" />
            <RowDefinition Height="Auto" />
        </Grid.RowDefinitions>
    </Grid>
</UserControl>

Drag and drop the Viewbox control from the Toolbox into the XAML code between the <Grid></Grid> tags. Specify its row and column in the grid to be 0. The resulting code is seen below.

<UserControl x:Class="SilverlightDemo.MainPage"
    xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"
    xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"

        </Grid.ColumnDefinitions>
        <Grid.RowDefinitions>
            <RowDefinition Height="Auto" />
            <RowDefinition Height="Auto" />
            <RowDefinition Height="Auto" />
        </Grid.RowDefinitions>
         <controls:Viewbox Grid.Row="0" Grid.Column="0" Height="120" Width="120">
  </controls:Viewbox
    </Grid>
</UserControl>

Drag and drop the Viewbox control from the Toolbox into the XAML code between the <Grid></Grid> tags. Specify its row and column in the grid to be 0. The resulting code is seen below.

<UserControl x:Class="SilverlightDemo.MainPage"
    xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"
    xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"

            <ColumnDefinition Width="200" />
        </Grid.ColumnDefinitions>
        <Grid.RowDefinitions>
            <RowDefinition Height="Auto" />
            <RowDefinition Height="Auto" />
            <RowDefinition Height="Auto" />
        </Grid.RowDefinitions>
         <controls:Viewbox Grid.Row="0" Grid.Column="0" Height="120" Width="120">

Drag and drop an Image control in between the <controls:ViewBox> and </controls:ViewBox> tag and modify its code as shown below, to specify its source and size.

    <Grid x:Name="LayoutRoot" Background="White" Height="300" Width="300">
        <Grid.ColumnDefinitions>
            <ColumnDefinition Width="200" />
        </Grid.ColumnDefinitions>
        <Grid.RowDefinitions>
            <RowDefinition Height="Auto" />
            <RowDefinition Height="Auto" />
            <RowDefinition Height="Auto" />
        </Grid.RowDefinitions>
         <controls:Viewbox Grid.Row="0" Grid.Column="0" Height="120" Width="120">
            <Image Source="Winter.jpg" Height="40" Width="40"></Image>
        </controls:Viewbox>
    </Grid>

Drag and drop another ViewBox and then an Image control in between the second <controls:ViewBox> and </controls:ViewBox> tag.

Modify the XAML as shown below:

    <Grid x:Name="LayoutRoot" Background="White" Height="300" Width="300">
        <Grid.ColumnDefinitions>
            <ColumnDefinition Width="200" />
        </Grid.ColumnDefinitions>
        <Grid.RowDefinitions>
            <RowDefinition Height="Auto" />
            <RowDefinition Height="Auto" />
            <RowDefinition Height="Auto" />
        </Grid.RowDefinitions>
         <controls:Viewbox Grid.Row="0" Grid.Column="0" Height="120" Width="120">
            <Image Source="Winter.jpg" Height="40" Width="40"></Image>
        </controls:Viewbox>
<controls:Viewbox Grid.Row="1" Grid.Column="0" Height="70" Width="90">
    <Image Source="Winter.jpg" Height="40" Width="40"></Image></controls:Viewbox
    </Grid>

Save the solution, build and execute it. When you see the output, you will observe that the two images show no distortion whatsoever though their height and width are not the same. This has happened because of the ViewBox.

Silverlight 6 Hosting Netherland - HostForLIFE.eu :: Image Brush in Silverlight

clock March 1, 2019 11:07 by author Peter

This article demonstrates how to create and use an image brush in Silverlight using XAML and C#.

z

Image Brush
An image brush paints an area with an image. The ImageSource property represents the image to be used during the painting by an image brush. The ImageBrush object represents an image brush.

Creating an Image Brush
The ImageBrush element in XAML creates an image brush. The ImageSource property of the ImageBrush represents the image used in the painting process.

The following code snippet creates an image brush and sets the ImageSource property to an image.
<ImageBrush ImageSource="dock.jpg" />


We can fill a shape with an image brush by setting a shape's Fill property to the image brush. The code snippet in Listing 1 creates a rectangle shape sets the Fill property to an ImageBrush.
<Rectangle
    Width="200"
    Height="100"
    Stroke="Black"
    StrokeThickness="4">
    <Rectangle.Fill>
        <ImageBrush ImageSource="dock.jpg" />
    </Rectangle.Fill>
</Rectangle>

Listing 1
The CreateAnImageBrush method listed in Listing 2 draws same rectangle with an image brush in Figure 1 dynamically.
/// <summary>
/// Fills a rectangle with an ImageBrush
/// </summary>
public void CreateAnImageBrush()
{
    // Create a Rectangle

    Rectangle blueRectangle = new Rectangle();
    blueRectangle.Height = 100;
    blueRectangle.Width = 200;

     // Create an ImageBrush
    ImageBrush imgBrush = new ImageBrush();
     imgBrush.ImageSource =
        new BitmapImage(new Uri(@"Dock.jpg", UriKind.Relative));
     // Fill rectangle with an ImageBrush

    blueRectangle.Fill = imgBrush;

    // Add Rectangle to the Grid.
    LayoutRoot.Children.Add(blueRectangle);
}

Silverlight 6 Hosting Netherland - HostForLIFE.eu :: How to Display a Pop Up Layer in Web Page using Silverlight

clock January 25, 2019 11:55 by author Peter

In this tutorial, you will learn how to show a non-annoying popup layer within a Silverlight web page.

Let's follow these steps:

Step 1

Add a button to your xaml page as shown below:

<Grid x:Name="LayoutRoot" Background="White" >
<Button Width="100" Height="50" x:Name="showPopup"
Click="showPopup_Click" Content="Show Popup" />
</Grid>

Step 2

Then, add the following code to your code behind file (page.xaml.cs):

Popup p = new Popup();
private void showPopup_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
{

1. Create a panel control to host other controls
    StackPanel panel1 = new StackPanel();
    panel1.Background = new SolidColorBrush(Colors.Gray);

2. Create a button
    Button button1 = new Button();
    button1.Content = "Close";
    button1.Margin = new Thickness(5.0);
    button1.Click += new RoutedEventHandler(button1_Click);

3. Create a text label
    TextBlock textblock1 = new TextBlock();
    Textblock1.Text = "The popup control";
    Textblock1.Margin = new Thickness(5.0);

4. Add text label and button to the panel
    panel1.Children.Add(textblock1);
    panel1.Children.Add(button1);

Step 3

Now, make the panel a child of the popup so that the panel will be shown within the Popup when displayed:

   p.Child = panel1;

And you can set a position:

 p.VerticalOffset = 25;
   p.HorizontalOffset = 25;

Use this code to show the popup:

p.IsOpen = true;
}

void button1_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
{

Then, to close the popup, follow this code:

// Close the popup.
   p.IsOpen = false;
}

Step 4

Now run the application. You can see the page with a button. When you click on the button, a popup layer will appear with a text label and a button in it. When you click on the button in the popup, it will close the popup.
