Custom Datagrid: Doesn't display and doesn't work

Hi all,

Hope someone can share their experience! I am trying to make a custom datagrid, only in appearance for now. Results:

1. On dragging the control from the VS toolbox: get a grey rectangle, not the table like look.
2. On running the Web page: no HTML.

Imports System.ComponentModel
Imports System.Web.UI.WebControls
Imports System.Web.UI

<DefaultProperty("Text"), ToolboxData("<{0}:custDG runat=server></{0}:custDG>")> Public Class custDG
    Inherits DataGrid

    Public Sub New()
        Me.BorderColor = Drawing.Color.Chartreuse
        Me.BorderStyle = BorderStyle.Double
    End Sub

    ' VS generated. MSDN states these are for internal purposes.
    Protected Overrides Sub CreateControlHierarchy(ByVal useDataSource As Boolean)

    End Sub

    ' VS generated.
    Protected Overrides Sub PrepareControlHierarchy()

    End Sub

End Class

For a comparison, I successfully made a customised listbox - just cosmetic customisations. VS did not supply an generated code for this.

Imports System.ComponentModel
Imports System.Web.UI

<DefaultProperty("Text"), ToolboxData("<{0}:lstbox runat=server></{0}:lstbox>")> Public Class lstbox
    Inherits System.Web.UI.WebControls.ListBox

    Public Sub New()
        Me.BackColor = Drawing.Color.Black
        Me.BorderStyle = WebControls.BorderStyle.Dotted

    End Sub

End Class

Is there something different about the DataGrid? Hope someone can shed some light on this.

Some success....

Make two .dll's, one for the custom DataGrid control, the other, data access code. If I want to specify a stored procedure dynamically (on the fly), I have to put the data access code in a seperate .dll. The DataGrid class doesn't like having the code of function "getData" as it written, specifically this line: da.SelectCommand.CommandText = sproc.

So I have a drag n drop, custom look DataGrid with re-usable code for data access that takes any sproc.

Imports System.Web.UI.WebControls
Public Class custDG
    Inherits DataGrid

    Public Sub New()

        Me.BackColor = Drawing.Color.Cornsilk
        Me.BorderStyle = BorderStyle.Double
        Me.BorderColor = Drawing.Color.Aqua

    End Sub
End Class

Imports System.Data.SqlClient
Public Class codeForCustomDG

    Public Function getData(ByVal sproc As String) As DataSet

        Dim ds As New DataSet
        Dim da As New SqlDataAdapter

        da.SelectCommand = New SqlCommand
        da.SelectCommand.CommandText = sproc
        da.SelectCommand.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure
        da.SelectCommand.Connection = New SqlConnection("data source=(local);integrated security=true;initial catalog=Northwind")
        da.Fill(ds, "employees")

        Return ds

    End Function

End Class

In the Web form

Dim cda As New codeForCustomDG
Me.CustDG1.DataSource = cda.getData("dbo.showEmployees")

Spellchecker doesn't work: no error, just doesn't work
Hey all. This is only happening with one person. It's all GW7 no SP. has worked fine before.

Freenx doesn't work, NX doesn't work with compiz. Questions
FreeNX just doesn't work. NX from nomachine installed well, but I guess that limits me to two logins? NX doesn't work with compiz, tho, at least from machines not running compiz. So no great surprise. :-) Is there any way to run startkde that disables compiz and uses kwin? Alternatively, hows the easiest way to handle alternative logins? I could link the two documents folders together, but then I'd have problems with file permissions. I'm just looking for ideas here, I could live with two logins. -- dougnc -------------------------------------------...

Installation 'Sybase DataWindow PS' printer on W98 doesn't work (so PDF export can't work either)
I have a problem with export DataWindow content to PDF on W98 systems. (I don't have any problem with PDF export on other systems like as WINNT, W2K, WXP). I found out that the problem is in the Sybase DataWindow PS printer. It looks like installed but it DOESN'T WORK on W98. When I try print something on this printer then no PostScript file is created. So I tried manual installation of it but it occurs an error during manual installation (I used description of instalation from Bruce Armstrong).

Can't get the Web Controls to work.. The Build.Bat file doesn't work? HELP>> ARGGG>.
Hi.. I was wanting to use the IE Web Controls, the Tab Strip, etc, and play with it.. Since I have IIS 5, I thought I'd copy them there using the Read me.txt instructions and then copy to a dev server that I use at a web host.. Well, everything worked except the Build file doesn't build the Microsoft.UI.Webcontrols.DLL file? When I try to run it by double clicking on it, it runs really fast in  the DOS window, but I can't see what it says and it closes.. So I tried to do so manually and I received an error that the "cse.exe is not recognized as an internal or external command or batch...
