Same here Veign. I don't know what it is exactly, but for me it's also the reason for not even wanting to take a closer look at it... A nasty gut feeling   :(

Developer's Corner / C# TreeView problem
« on: February 15, 2007, 03:18 AM »

I'm having a bit of a problem in C#. I have an MDI Form that contains a Treeview (directly on the form, docked left). The remaining space contains some MDI child windows.

When I programmatically add a treenode to the treeview at runtime, I want the user to be able to edit the default label text of the new node immediately. This saves the trouble of either a dialog to prompt for the name of the new element, or having the user click the node to change the name manually. The code I have so far:

        private void SelectAndEditNode(string id)
            TreeNode[] temp = tvwProjects.Nodes.Find(id, true);
            if (temp != null && temp.Length > 0)
                tvwProjects.SelectedNode = temp[0];

The string id is the unique key and the Find function theoretically always returns one node. The code works fine, the node gets selected, is visible and the label of the node is in edit mode so the user can start typing a name.

The problem is, when I start typing a name, the label accepts one character and then the last active MDI child window is activated and the rest of what I type is put in the MDI child window:

If there are no MDI child windows then it works fine. I tried tvwProjects.Focus() before calling BeginEdit() but that makes no difference.

Any one got an idea?

I am constantly using 'Insert' because the default behavior for the windows command-line is 'overwrite' mode  >:( >:( >:(

You can change the default setting! Click the icon of a command-line window, choose properties and the tab Options where you can check 'Insert mode' or someting similar (I use Dutch Windows). See screenshot.


This is the second time today that I encounter a thread like this. About three weeks ago I started a major (personal) project to write an 'outliner' application. I need an application myself to organise my notes, outline documents and books I'm writing, etc. What I've come up with so far is an application that can have one project open at a time. A project however may consist of any number of documents. Each document may consist of any number of files. Each file consists of headers, and each header in turn consists of paragraphs. That is the basic idea.

Each paragraph can have notes attached to it which are not meant for publishing when the document is exported or printed. Each paragraph can also have footnotes attached, which should be printed in the final document.

I've picked up many ideas from several threads over the last few weeks and since I'm still at the beginning of developing the application, any other ideas are welcome for implementation. I don't have a lot of experience with these applications so any ideas are very welcome!

Vevola, I put your ideas on my to-do list and I'm researching the bibliography formats now. If you have any more suggestions... (just don't expect my application to be finished any time soon, it may take 4-6 months before I can release a Beta).

Anyone interested in this topic and have ideas I can put on my to-do list, please send me a message or reply on the thread. Maybe together we can produce something everyone can benefit from...

I don't know of any editor capable of it, but this is now on my to-do list for my upcoming application. I can't reveal a lot about it yet (I don't want to :P), but it will take a couple of months before it's finished I'm afraid. But it's someting I know how to implement (or have ideas about) and I will definitely have a go at it.
