CST238 Week 3 Questions / Concerns? Recap Check-off Take Home Lab#2 New topics – PictureBox – FlowLayoutPanel – Menu – Context Menu – Status Bar – Toolstrip – Bitmap – Dialogs (special dialogs – FileOpen, color) In-Class Exercise #3 Take Home Lab#3

Recap Controls – Buttons – Textbox – Label Events – Click (button) – Keyboard events (KeyDown, KeyPress, KeyUp) – Form level events (Load) Layout control – organize controls – TableLayoutControl

Take Home Lab 2 Calculator – Process keyboard events – Table layout control for keys – Manage states First operand (example: 135) Operator (+) Second operand (23)

State Diagram Start Textbox (0) Operand1(0) Operand2(0) Operator(“”) EnterNumber1 Textbox (+d) Operand1(0) Operand2(0) Operator(“”) Enter a Digit (0..9,.) Enter a Digit (0..9,.) Operator Textbox (num) Operand1(num) Operand2(0) Operator(“op”) Enter an operator Enter a Digit (0..9,.) EnterNumber2 Textbox (0+d) Operand1(num) Operand2(0) Operator(“op” ) Enter an operator Result Textbox (num2->result) Operand1(resul t) Operand2(0) Operator(“”) Enter = Enter an operator Enter = Operand2 = num Enter a digit, Textbox(0)

PictureBox Control Two ways to load a picture: – Load method – Image property Properties – SizeMode (Normal, StretchImage, etc.) – BorderStyle – Anchor/Dock

Status Bar & Context Menu Add a status bar at the bottom to show filename Add a context menu to stretch the image

Example 2

Use layout controls TableLayoutControl FlowLayoutControl

Allow one control to flow into another control. Useful when you need to have multiple controls.

Dialog Forms that: – Provide information to the user, or – Request information from the user Generally modal – Cannot switch forms until dialog is closed. Several dialogs included with Windows Forms – MessageBox, Color, OpenFile, SaveFile, Print, etc. You can create your own custom dialog

Working with Dialogs Simple Dialogs – Just a function call – MessageBox.Show() Common/Custom Dialog – Create instance of dialog – Set properites – Show dialog using ShowDialog method Returns a meber of the DialogResult enumeration – Take action based on dialog result

Working with Dialog OpenFieDialog openFile1 = new OpenFileDialog(); openFile1.Filter = “JPEG Files (*.jpg)|*.jpg|PNG Files (*.png)|*.png|BMP Files (*.bmp)|*.bmp|All files (*.*)|*.*”; if (openFile1.ShowDialog() == DialogResults.OK) { //Do something with OpenFile1.FileName //which is the filename selected by the user if (openFile1.ShowDialog() == DialogResult.OK) { pictureBox1.Load(openFile1.FileName); }

Working with Color Dialog ColorDialog colorDialog1 = new ColorDialog(); if (colorDialog1.ShowDialog() == DialogResult.OK) pictureBox1.BackColor = colorDialog1.Color; //selected color

Custom Dialog Create form as you would any other Set form properties to add dialog look, feel and behavior – Set FormBorderStyle to FixedDialog Disables resizing of dialog – Set ControlBox property to false Removes minimize, maximize and close buttons from title bar – Set AcceptButton and CancelButton properties AcceptButton - pressing Enter is the same as clicking the button CancelButton – pressing Escape is the same as clicking the button Set dialog return value on button clicks – In event handler, or – Using the DialogResult property of the button

Example 1

In-Class Lab#3 Modify the second picture viewer – Add menu for Show, Close, Clear Picture & Background color – Add Toolstrip for these actions. – Add multiple pictures to the resources – Create an array of images – Create an array of caption – Add a Status bar to show the caption of the picture – Add context-menu to flip through pictures

Take-Home Exercise #3 Flag Quiz – Find some flag images and add them to resources (at least 10 images) – Create an array of images – Create an array of country names – Create an array of correct answers – Keep track of their scores
