Although most developers and APIs use the RGB scheme when working with colors, it's not the only available way to represent or select colors. For instance, the standard Windows color-selection dialog box allows you to work with the HSL color scheme in an indirect way. In this article, the author describes several color selection schemes, and uses GDI+ (via the System.Drawing namespace) to create a component that makes it possible for your own applications to provide a simpler, friendlier color c...

Web user controls are controls that you can define as you need them for your applications, using the same programming techniques that you use to write Web Forms pages. You can create Web user controls when you need to create reusable pieces of UI that will be used throughout your application.

The .NET Framework provides you with the ability to easily develop your own controls. You can create a user control, which is a set of standard controls bound together by code, or you can design your own control from the ground up. You can even use inheritance to create a control that inherits from an existing control and add to its inherent functionality. Whatever approach you use, the .NET Framework provides the functionality to draw a custom graphical interface for any control you create....

One of the most annoyingly interesting components within the VB.NET 2008 environment is the WebBrowser control (or class, if you prefer) that is bundled as standard. It exposes a number of common methods and properties, but lacks one of the most useful elements that can be found in the full-blown web browser (a.k.a. SHDocVw or Ieframe.dll) version, namely the ExecWB command. The following class provides a simple example of how to harness the power of ExecWB from the System.Windows.Forms.WebBrows...

This article explains/describes publisher and subscriber event-handling model with the help of a user control. When we add a user control to a form, we cannot directly handle the events raised by the user control in the form. This can be achieved by using publisher subscriber model, in which we use delegates to publish user control events. I have been introduced to computer languages through .NET. Since I have directly plunged into .NET technology and have not been a part of any other languages,...

LinkLabels are Windows Forms controls that enable a user to hyperlink to a URL that points to either the Web or the local directory system. While the SDK documentation discusses the control, it does not demonstrate how linking is accomplished, nor does it outline the power and flexibility the control provides. This article fills those gaps, showing how to link using the LinkLabel control. It also shows the flexibility of this control for the programmer using the .NET Framework. In addition, the ...

I resolved to solve this and I have added an adapter and factory for the ToolStripPanel initialy, but I have been having trouble with the ToolStripContainer. So, as my first post, here is the ToolStripPanel code. There are two parts to this. And two ways to do it. The first is to edit the existing ToolStrip UI factory to include the new code.
