ComponentOne Studio Installation on VS2010 Express

Many customers face problems while running our ComponentOne Studio installers on VS2010 Express. When the installer is launched, a message is shown that you need to Install Visual Studio 2010 and the .Net 4.0 framework.

C1GridView : Saving Open GroupState on Server side Editing

When a group is expanded and any row is edited by clicking the Edit button in Wijmo Gridview with server side editing, the group gets collapsed. This is because in server side editing, clicking the Edit button causes a postback and the C1GridView renders in original state i.e. all groups are in collapsed state. And, the user will have to re-open that group again in order to make any change in that row.

Wijmo TreeView With SQLDataSource

C1TreeView for Wijmo can be bound to XML Data Source and a SiteMap Data Source easily. You can refer to this link which demonstrates this.

Run qUnit scripts from CodedUI Tests

With jQuery making its mark prominent in the recent times and unit tests based on it coming in demand day by day, it was only a matter of time that a requirement like this would crop up.

Using ValueLabels in Wijmo Charts

The annotation along each axis is an important part of any chart. Wijmo Chart annotates the axes with numbers/datetime values based on Series data. You may format the values using AnnoFormatString property but sometimes we have a requirement to display strings along an axis instead of numeric values (for example, you may be charting product prices and want to display the product names along the X-axis).

Wijmo v2++ Video

If you missed the Wijmo v2++ Webcast yesterday, don't worry we have published the recording.

Running Application from CodedUI scripts!!

Whether CodedUI scripting is mentioned across everyone’s post, from the word of mouth, or any other source, it is at best known to be a means of testing what is already built. In case it is a web application, we need a running instance of the same on the desktop, and we need it to be hosted and accessible from some server.

Next week I will be unveiling some cool new stuff in the Wijmo v2++ Webcast.

Save State with C1FlexGrid for Silverlight

We can easily save the current state of the C1DataGrid and Greg's post here discusses the implementation in detail.

Display Watermarks in Bound C1ComboBox for Silverlight

Watermark is a popular feature for displaying customized strings when input values are missing in editable controls. If we start looking at the available properties for C1ComboBox we will find a 'Watermark' property is already available and functioning. Simply setting this property to a string will display the watermark when no value is selected in the ComboBox.

LightSwitch: No Plans to Support SQL CE

Some time ago I voted on a suggestion for LightSwitch to Support SQL Compact Edition.  I recently received a notice that the Visual Studio team had declined the issue, saying:

ColumnPicker in C1DataGrid

The ColumnPicker functionality is helpful in toggling the visibility of columns at runtime. This blog gives a very simple code to add this in C1DataGrid.

Silent Installation of ComponentOne Installers

Many customers have asked us whether there is any way to silently install C1 installer on a computer. When we normally run C1 installer it requires local administrator rights and asks permission to make an entry to the registry.

Wijmo 2.0.8 Released

Wijmo 2.0.8 has officially released. We have been doing plenty of bug fixes and feature enhancements since 2.0.0.

This blog focuses on a small utility implementation where a drilled down C1Chart control is used to display detailed data for each row in C1FlexGrid. ComponentOne already provides a separate suite for Data Analysis in the form of OLAP for Silverlight. However, we may not need a full fledged control for small analytic display every time. In such a scenario, we can bind existing C1Chart control to the required data source to display the data.

Data Binding of Wijmo Composite Charts

Composite charts are used to display and analyze complex data in a single chart, so as the name suggests, its data binding is a little different from normal charts. In this blog, we will see how we can easily create a complex chart in code.
