Use FillRectangle for background color. Wrap/align is done with StringFormat parameter, note that you need to specify a rectangle and not just a point.
You start out using e.CellBounds and also use this to draw a rectangle in each cell, then you change to some other coordinates for text. What if you continue to use e.CellBounds also when drawing text?
I only tested changing the property of each item in the list as OP asked about. Adding/removing items with navigator is not a problem with list/textbox binding, since that changes current item in bindingsource, but you should use BindingList if you change underlying list directly.
Yes, it will...
A List works fine with INotifyPropertyChanged for simple textbox binding, but if you bind to a DataGridView you need a BindingList.
And where the NameChanged event works for textbox binding, a DataGridView requires INotifyPropertyChanged.
A quick sample that draws two cells as one:
Dim c1 = Me.DataGridView1.Item(1, 2)
Dim sampletext = "this is a longer sample string spanning cell and then some"
Dim style = c1.InheritedStyle
Dim r1 = Me.DataGridView1.GetCellDisplayRectangle(1, 2, False)
Dim r2 =...
I had a play with this and came up with a perhaps peculiar solution :rolleyes: What I did was to get the source code for ProfessionalColorTable with .Net Reflector (ILSpy could also be used) and use some regex to extract the overridable properties, those that return the color to use, and output...
I don't think so. ProfessionalColorTable uses shared properties of ProfessionalColors class, which depends on system color scheme setting, and since it is shared it is probably used by the "whole framework".
Each time a color property is read it goes through its method FromKnownColor, which...
As you can see yourself Win32_PowerPlan class has the Activate method. No idea why yours errors out, it works fine here.
Yes, you can use powercnf also, here's an example getting the guids automatically:
Dim plan = CType(ComboBoxPlans.SelectedItem, ROOT.CIMV2.POWER.Win32.Powerplan)
Dim guid =...
This is rather complicated to code in VB with Power Management Functions - Win32 apps
It can also be done with WMI and Win32_PowerPlan class (Windows)
Still lots of management code unless you generate a class with Mgmtclassgen.exe (Management Strongly Typed Class Generator)
I've attached a...
You need to use: PrintPageEventArgs.HasMorePages Property (System.Drawing.Printing)
Example with calculations for font/line height see: PrintDocument Class (System.Drawing.Printing)
Use a variable outside the event handler to keep track of row index to print each page.
