Thanks for the information, but there was no answer to my problem...
I use the code I gave and the Closed
event does not fire!! Even if I am using your controls from the toolbox, shouldn't it still fire?
If I follow your code, you create a Stack Panel to contain the NOV controls - is this essential? Does this then still interact okay with the rest of the components, even if they are stock ones?
I have tried to use your coding method - so dockstyle wills the entire window, but then I add my combobox, it doesn't get placed where I want it to, doesn't get filled with the data I have already coded for the combobox items and is stretched across the top of the app window - doesn't look like this is a winner for me!!
NComboBox PracticeLocationsCombo = new NComboBox();
PracticeLocationsCombo.Location = new NPoint(92, 92);
PracticeLocationsCombo.Size = new NSize(200, 27);
With the combobox, I add the items programmatically from a SQL database when the application opens, so how do I now do it if I am using your method? When the combobox closes it needs to set focus to a stock standard DataGridView (which will not be in the Stack Panel, so I assume that my coding will not change for this?
Also, does it mention anywhere in the documentation to use "Widget" if you don't create it in code and use the provided Widgets from the toolbox, I stumbled upon how to do it by accident? And lastly, why does it matter which way I use your controls, shouldn't I still have access to all
the events and also find out what the heck these events are somewhere in some document? I can't find anywhere that there is a Closed event relating to the ComboBox.
Your support has been great, I can't fault it, you are extremely helpful and patient, but I seem to take a step forward and stop (or take a few back) because there is nothing anywhere to be able to assist me in moving forward without me contacting you - all of this could be avoided with clearer documentation and the wait is adding time pressure on this project. I code from a Design, not create a design from code - that may not be how everyone does it, but for me, I find it is the best as the interface with the client is extremely important to me and I need to see it.
The current application is a small part of a huge project, and I decided to try your controls with this component because it was relatively small and easy to code, but at this stage, I have spent more than a week just trying to style your components, the rest of the application is complete. So, I would like to continue with the large component, but I can't afford to spend months sending through questions, just to style a component, the project would balloon out for months and months.
The following questions I have asked still have not been answered anywhere...
1. How do I add a Tooltip to your buttons, the standard way for stock buttons doesn't work?
2. Can I have multiple themes, as I have different components/modules that currently has a different color scheme, Green, Blue and Red - so if the user clicks and changes to the module with say the red based theme and they are in the green module, then I need to be able to change themes on the fly - is this possible?
Just letting you know...
The Subscribe to Email still is not working, so I have no notification that you respond. Also, the live demos (on Windows 10 system) only works forcing Internet Explorer - Edge and FireFox do not work at all. Lastly, trying to read through the online documentation is like watching grass grow, no matter what browser is used, clicking on something, trying to search, etc. is painfully slow.
