Grid Row Is Getting Scrolled on click of Text Box in another Row

Question: Grid Row Is Getting Scrolled on click of Text Box in another Row

I need to implement the XAML page in which there is TextBox at the bottom of the page. I have implemented the desired functionality,
have created one grid with two rows. In the first row I have mentioned the Heading Text and in the Second row I have Created the Text Box alligned it Veritically at bottom. The problem is that When I am clicking the text box the entire page is getting scrolled upwards beyond screen and the header is getting hide. I need that only the 2nd Row having the text box should get scrolled and not the first Row. The row having the Header should remain intact and visible even when the user clcik the TextBox.
Followning is my code snippett:
<Grid x:Name="LayoutRoot" Background="White">
<RowDefinition Height="Auto"/>
<RowDefinition Height="*" />
<StackPanel Grid.Row="0" Style="{StaticResource StackPanelHeaderStyle}" Height="100">
<TextBlock Style="{StaticResource StackPanelHeaderStyleTextBlock}" Text="Comments" />
<!--<Grid x:Name="ContentPanel" Grid.Row="1" Margin="12,0,12,0">
<toolkit:PhoneTextBox VerticalScrollBarVisibility="Auto" x:Name="txtusername" MaxHeight="300" BorderThickness="1" BorderBrush="Black" Foreground="Black" TextWrapping="Wrap" Height ="Auto" Width="432" AcceptsReturn="True" Background="Red" VerticalAlignment="Bottom"/>
<ScrollViewer Grid.Row="1">
<toolkit:PhoneTextBox VerticalScrollBarVisibility="Auto" x:Name="txtusername" MaxHeight="300" BorderThickness="1" BorderBrush="Black" Foreground="Black" TextWrapping="Wrap" Height ="Auto" Width="432" AcceptsReturn="True" Background="Red" VerticalAlignment="Bottom"/>

Preferred Solution: Grid Row Is Getting Scrolled on click of Text Box in another Row

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have Windows 7 Home Premium and Microsoft Office 2010 which has no direct facility for copying and pasting plans showing table lines or Excel grid lines. I want to send a copy of a plan of our own property to a web based firm when requesting a quotation. I tried to get round this by using text boxes for lines but can`t copy and paste the text boxes themselves either. So now I am trying using rows of xxxxxs but am having trouble switching between horizontal and vertical rows of text. Is it possible to do this without putting them
into text boxes ?

Anyone any ideas for a simple way of getting round this problem. I am new to Windows 7 and to Microsoft Office 2010 and am finding the latter quite bewildering anyway. I managed to find Word Art but the directions for finding the way to change vertical to horizontal text defeat me at the moment. We don`t appear to be able to update Windows 7 - only to replace it which is an expense we prefer to avoid at the moment.

Answer:Pasting text boxes and grid lines into emails

Attach a file with the images/data. I generally send 2 formats, just to be sure they will be able to open at least 1 of them, such as a bmp image and a pdf file.

EDIT: I just noticed that you double-posted. Please read the rules.

Hello. Using, I've been trying to figure out how to paste the clipboard into the window your mouse pointer is pointed.

If anyone has used unix you are familiar with what i am asking for; just to double right click or middle click and to paste the content of clipboard to the given window.

Can anyone offer any ideas for .net?

Hey all. I've seen many posts with this problem but none of the fixes have worked for me.Win XP SP3Pentium 4 2.4GHz1GB RAMRadeon 9600 128mb26GB used of 150GB HarddriveWhen I scroll in windows, or when I click-and-drag a window around, I get lovely, lovely lag. I've cleaned my system, temp files, unneeded programs, registry, defragmented, disk cleaned, updated video drivers, cleaned up startup items. Everything I've seen recommended I've done, and I still get lag.What should I do now? :I

Answer:Windows lag when dragged/scrolled through

1 gig of RAM is rather low for XP. drop another 1 gig in there and see if it improves. If you can, put 2 2gig sticks in there. WinXP 32 bit will only see about 3.5 gig of it but your system will definately run faster.

Hi all,I replaced my power supply to upgrade from 250w to 480w.  I carefully unplugged the old and re-plugged the new (after unplugging power source) and when I confidently turned everything back on the hard drive seems not to work.  there's a faint beep but I'm not sure if it's the POST beep or not.  (I have a vague understanding of that)Instead, the hard drive clicks quite clearly and it clicks 4x then pauses, then 4x, pause, etc, etc. I tried re-plugging the old power supply back in and get the same result.   The computer screen just stays blank the whole time.Did my hard drive just die at that point?   Could switching ps cause the hd to die?a few facts:I do touch the computer case before I stick my hands in there to remove static charge.HD is western digital caviar 40g  WD400Computer is 3ghz P4 running xp with sp3replacement power supply says it's for a P4 and it fits perfectly where the old one came out, same connections etc.I have a 160g drive on it's way from Ebay that I intended to replace this drive with anyway and I have the 40g drive backed up on an external so it's not a disaster but it sure is an inconvenience.I'm ready to try hitting it on the side (percussive maintenance) but thought I'd try a post first. :-)Thanks,John

Hello Everyone,

I have yahoo as my home page when I start microsoft internet explorer 8. The odd thing is what every time I start it, the window comes up but it is is scrolled down abotu a 1/4 inch. It is iritating because I have to scroll up to the top to see the top nav topics.

Any idea why this is happening?


Answer:Browser starts slightly scrolled

It could be a zoom setting or perhaps a BHO sending the wrong page file information to the browser.

Try running your IE8 in the Browser "Safe Mode". This loads it without any add-ons and with default settings.

1. Go to Start > Run
2. Type iexplore -extoff
3. Press Enter

Does the problem persist? If not then you can reset your IE8 settings to default:

1. Go to Start -> Control Panel
2. Double-click "Internet Options"
3. Click the "Advanced" tab.
4. Click "Reset..."
5. Click "Reset"
6. Close and restart your IE8.

I have many Word documents on this laptop and they all work fine - except for one document. When I scroll this document, Word crashes. That is, a dialog box appears with the message "Microsoft Word has stopped working". Details of the problem are shown below. This document consists of multiple images captured from a word site using Microsoft Snipping Tool plus a little text.
Is there any way to determine why this particular document crashes when all other Word documents work fine?
Note: I scanned the laptop last night with Malwarebytes, SUPERAntiSpyware, Avira, TDSSKiller. I ran CHKDSK and SFC. And I used Seagate's SeaToolsForWindows to check the integrity of the laptop hard drive. None of these tools indicated that there were any problems with the laptop.

Answer:Microsoft Word crashes when one particular document is scrolled

Based on the error message, there is an add-in in Word that is causing the document to crash. Try opening Word in safe mode by opening a command prompt, and type in winword.exe /safe. Or, go to the Start menu, find the Office 2010 folder, hold down the Ctrl key while clicking on Office, and keep holding the Ctrl key until you are prompted if you want to open it in Safe mode.
If you can open the document and scroll through it without issues, the problem is one of your add-ins.
You can disable add-ins by going to File>Options and selecting add-ins. Unfortunately, it will be a process of trial and error to determine which add-in may be causing the issue.

Answer:Why do my received e mails disappear after I have scrolled thru them, but not read them?

You do not give much information so i only can guess.
If you open your stock email app and swipe to "unread" then you only see emails which are not read yet. As soon as you open them the are "marked read" and the next time you will not see them anymore in the "unread" but you will see them in "all".

As the title suggests, the latest UltraNav drivers on my E420 cause the Windows 7 mouse scroll settings to be set to '1' any time 2 finger scrolling or zooming or other gestures is performed on the touch pad. Reseting the scroll setting in the windows mouse control panel fixes the issue until the next time I perform a two finger gesture. I read in the changes readme there was a similar problem in earlier versions. I believe the issue has come back. Can anyone else confirm this issue? As a work around, you can disable zooming and 2 finger scrolling to prevent the Windows setting from being reset.

Answer:UltraNav resets lines scrolled when using two finger gestures

Just to add to this issue regarding scrolling, certain programs no longer scroll (e.g. Notepad++).On the plus side, GIMP 2.8 now recognizes the scrolling feature of the touch pad.

Answer:Text in right click menus on taskbar missing

Hi, you may find the following of interest, if not of immediate help, but it may suggest something..
As it turns out, the data for the Jump List items isn’t in the registry at all, but in the user’s AppData. Specifically, in a collection of files in %AppData%\Microsoft\Windows\Recent\AutomaticDestinations. There’s one file per application; I had a somewhat magical 42 files in mine. I noted that there is also a similar folder called %AppData%\Microsoft\Windows\Recent\CustomDestinations, with fewer files in it, and which I suspect contains a cache of Jump List items that have been added programmatically by each application (such as the ‘Play All Music’ command on Media Player’s Jump List.
The files in these folders don’t have particularly useful names, but if you open them in Notepad the contents will give you a clue as to what program each one belongs to (note: don’t edit the files directly). When I compared the folder on different machines it was clear the names are the same for each application.
The file for Explorer.exe was actually the first in the list for me, and is called 1b4dd67f29cb1962.automaticDestinations-ms. The solution was simple; delete the file. As soon as I had removed it, I was able to re-pin folders, the removed file was recreated, and my life was once again sane.

Hi, Aero disappeared after Windows 7.

However, Aeroglass (just search) offers a degree of transparency in title bars (best with a nominal fee of a couple of euros). I've used it from Win 8 on. You can have it fully transparent if you wish - variable.

MS is moving (very slowly) to a new consistent model for its GUI with rt click menus. At the moment it's a complete mix.

In almost any file that contains text such as notepad, or any windows 'box' where typing is allowed, when you select some or all of the text displayed by highlighting it, the right click menu offered for the selected text contains things like 'Open IME' or 'Right to left Reading Order' and a few others including cut, copy, paste, and delete.
Is it possible to add any custom actions to the these and if so where would I do it?
If I wanted to use the selected text in an application, is there a way to use the selection as a variable passed to the application by adding an option for that function to this menu?

Answer:Which registry key controls the right click options for selected text

Hello, there are only general programs for adding items to the context menu, not specific to that context as far as I've seen. Some only add preset functions, others like those below allow you to add anything.

When I double clicked ESC on any of the editable text boxes, it clears the complete web page. It happens only IE only.

Is it IE issue? Any workaround to resolve the  same?
Thanks, Neel.

Kind Regards, Neel.

Ive been using my laptop normally and consistently for the past week as I work on school papers. I was doing some research in the library and using the mouspad as normal, but when I got home and began using it the mouspad stopped clicking. It still works in that I can move the mouse and tap-click, but the tactile left click wont work at all. I need to use the tactile click to be able to highlight text for my papers. I tried turning it off and on again, as well as looking for a control panel menu that would solve this but have had no luck. I havent entered any command to make this happen so I'm at a loss on how to reverse it. Please help!

I mostly use my notebook for typing papers.When in Word 2013, or trying to type in a web address, I cannot drag my curser to select text. I can only select text by clicking three times.Also, I can no longer click on a drop down menu, and then move my curser over the option I want to select THEN click. I must click the drop down menu, hold down the button, drag my curser over to the option I want to select, and then release the button to select the option.It doesn't sound like a big deal but it's really annoying when I'm typing a ten page pape .Please help!

Why is it that I am emailing back and forth to a friend using "reply" eventually the text formatting goes nuts?
I get random fonts and sizes that it refuses to reformat before I send. I once thought it was just my computer reflecting back to me weird font changes but when I asked my friend she said that's how they actually showed up, a mixture of fonts.
Does this happen most or get triggered when you cut and paste from somewhere else and make Outlook Express go out of it's mind?

This problem comes from my new Dell Inspiron 15 (5000 Series i5547-3750sLV ) that came with Windows 8.1 installed. When I right click programs that are pinned to the taskbar, images from the OS cover text in the window.

Notice the thumbtack image over the "unpin this program from taskbar" line. The same thing happens with the red x image next to "close window."

My system:

I have tried changing my screen resolution and theme via Windows. I also tried adjusting various settings (brightness, contrast, resolution) in the Intel HD Graphics Control Panel.

I also went to Windows 10 (which did not have this issue) then reverted back to 8.1 (for other reasons) through the downgrade feature. 8.1 still had the problem so I did a system reset which took several hours and did not solve the issue.

I am considering doing clean install with a flash drive. It would be great to avoid the trouble of finding and downloading all the necessary drivers.

Any ideas as to what is causing this issue and how I can fix it?

Answer:Rick click taskbar programs, OS images cover text.

Very common topic on here. Go down a page or two and you will find the link in the last post, how to fix this.

i was thinking if there's a chrome/FF extension (or userscript) that allows the PC browser to emulate smartphone behavior. for instance, when we double tap on an area of text, it automatically zooms in to that area and wraps the text nicely around the window.

right now, i do it manually (using ctrl+scrollwheel, then adjusting the horizontal bar to make it fit). any recommendations for automation?

Answer:double click frame to zoom in to text (emulate smartphone behavior)?

I could not find anything that fits what you are looking for. You've probably looked and found existing extensions are fairly similar to what you do presently.

Out of interest I wrote some scripts with Macro Express and AutoIt. It only took a few minutes. They worked from a hot key (rather than double-click) and pasting into a new window at larger font or appearing in Notepad. I found that it was easier to select text with the mouse (followed by the hot key), so don't rule that out if you find such an extension.

I also made a version where it copied the text in the area so many pixels above and below the mouse. Worked OK but it could miss some text in the top and bottom lines where there was a mix of left-, centred- and right-aligned text. Unfortunately I don't know the programming for FF or Chrome so I can't help with the request. My basic apps did have the advantage that they worked for any document that has text that can be copied to the clipboard (and the text could be directly pasted anywhere else).

Okay, I have had this computer a long time, it's always been an XP machine, though I upgraded to XP Pro recently, SP3 of course. Earlier this year, or maybe late last year, my fiance upgraded my whole computer for me, the only hardware that's the same is the hard drive, which is now a secondary hard drive, since they had to install a different hard drive to put the OS on. Don't ask me why, I don't get it, but it just wouldn't load on the old HD, probably because it already had an OS on it? Anyway, it's been fine this whole time, but yesterday my start menu started freaking out. I'd click Start, and the menu would pop up, then almost immediately disappear. If I'm quick enough, I can click on All Programs and then it will open the program list and stay open, which is nice. I figured I had a virus, so I tried opening my virus scanners to clean it up. They found a few things, but it didn't fix the start menu. I also noticed that any windows I have open will blink, like a program is trying to open in the foreground, but then doesn't. I looked online and tried checking my mouse, since some people in 2009 had said it was a glitchy mouse button, but that wasn't it. Then I tried booting in safe mode, running Avira Anti-Vir, and Spybot S&D. I found two more serious-sounding bugs and cleaned them up, but still no avail with the start menu and windows blinking. I did notice that these problems only occur in normal boot mode, not Safe Mode. ... Read more

Also, I found out that when i shut my computer down (after a lot of effort trying to click it fast enough), I get an error that says Svchost.exe - DLL something or other, and says that the application failed to initialize since I'm shutting down. That's when I figured that I must have some corrupted file trying to open constantly, but crashing instead. Problem is, since it's a svchost.exe, I have no idea how to figure out what program is the one crashing or how to fix it. I saw someone else having a similar issue, but with more errors, and tried the steps to solving theirs, but it didn't help me (something to do with ipv6, which wasn't even installed on my computer). I'm still drawing blanks here.

When you right click on desktop or in windows explorer you have an option for NEW > Rich Text Document

Now when i create a file like that, it doesn't remember or maintain the default font size and paragraph spacing. It seems that WordPad doesn't maintain a default font size and paragraph space setting. So the work around for this was to ensure it opens with a default blank file which ive already saved with empty content but with preferred font, size etc. Then you go into windows start menu and choose the wordpad shortcut and point it to this default file instead of wordpad.exe. So when each time you click WordPad it will actually open the your blank document with your preferred font settings etc. But this doesn't work when you use the right click method to create a quick WordPad doc at a particular location. Because in the right click method it again fires up wordpad.exe only.

So is there a way to force or associate the right click item in the shell folder or something to open the dummy default document instead. That is when you select new Rich Text Doc, it should actually open mydefault.rtf which ive positioned at a stable location on my system (or whatever i called my dummy file) when i click on it.

I am using Powerpoint 2003 on my notebook running Win 7 64-bit.
The problem is, EVERY time I click in a text box or placeholder to place the cursor somewhere in the text, Powerpoint immediately highlights (selects) all the text in the box up to the point where I clicked. So if I just click and type without thinking, it wipes out half my text - I have to click twice to actually position the cursor. This happens regardless of whether I use the trackpad or plug in a mouse.

Also, figures and placeholders very often move by a few pixels when I click on them. So if I right-click an image that doesn't have focus, instead of getting the usual menu I get the shortened one with "Move Here" etc. as if I'd right-clicked it and dragged.

Very annoying!!!

I use the same version of Powerpoint on two desktop computers (both running XP) with none of these issues. So, does anybody know if this is a Win7 problem, a notebook problem, or a Powerpoint setting I can fix?

Greetings! I've searched everywhere for the answer to this issue. It must be common, but I can't find it anywhere. I'm using MS Word 2007, but the problem was the same in 2003. I sometimes get a text box that is behind regular text. I need to move it. One normally just selects a text box and drags, or cut and paste, it where one wants. However, when it is behind text, it can't be selected. I have found no way to select normal text and "send it behind."

How do I get to this text box that is behind my regular text? I've been told to "move the regular text out of the way, then you will be able to get to your text box." But the text box moves with text!



Answer:Text box stuck behind regular text in MS Word 2003 and 2007, Can't select text box.

I support a software program that has a proprietary menu item when you right-click a calculated field. It has been this way for 10-15years and has worked in WinXP through Win10 with never an issue. This past week I had 3 different customers tell me that when they right-click one of these fields to access what is normally the Cut/Copy/Paste/ menu that also includes our menu item, they are now getting the Windows default cut/copy/paste/Right to Left Reading order/Show Unicode control characters/ etc menu. The only thing I can think of that they all have in common besides these are all Window 10 64bit pc's, is that they all have one update to Adobe Acrobat (17.012.20098).
I was able to resolve for a moment on two of these workstations by having the user go into Language/Advanced settings and actually selected "English (Unites States) from the "Override for Windows display language" even though that settings is implied by the "recommended". But after the pc was turned off over night and back to it the next day, the problem is back and that setting is still selected. All language and regional settings on all the pc's are defaulted to English/Unites States. I do not know what other avenue to go in. Could something hae been switched on or off in Windows (by this Adobe update perhaps?) that would make the context text menu switch to Windows text default right-click menu?

Any help is appreciated!

The gridlines are very helpful for getting the shot straight (horizon, or edges of buildings etc can be used to ensure the camera is level).

I use the mode a lot, it also helps to "frame" the shot as the centre is clearly visible, so offsetting any subject from the centre (or not) becomes easier.

Put simply, ?grid computing allows computers to share power over the Internet, while the Web allows them to share information over the Internet,? according to the Cern Grid website. Research, research, research The Grid, as it exists today, is currently used by research scientists to collate data on the LHC and the masses of information the World?s largest physics experiment is generating. Speaking to The Times, Tony Doyle, technical director of the grid project gave some indication of the scale of change The Grid could bring in. ?Holographic video conferencing is not that far away.? ?Online gaming could evolve to include many thousands of people, and social networking could become the main way we communicate.? While your average chess-mastering supercomputer can handle the odd barrel-load of information, the LHC is generating so much information that even the most powerful supercomputers would struggle to cope.

Question: off the grid proxy

so I am looking for a good web proxy thats not on any of the big poxy site lists I had a private one I was using but it looks like they are now down. any help on this would be appreciated..
Edit: Let Me rephrase My question.

Recently (read 2+ months ago) my employer upgraded some equipment and in the process changed our firewall/routing settings, the result of this is the boards for my university class, in fact anything in entire departments network fails to resolve.
so for 2 months I've been happily using a proxy to get my class responses in on time, but as of this morning my proxy no longer works (it isn't blocked its just no longer online)
now I can understand those of you who don't want to circumvent security for any reason, but thats no reason to assume my intentions are anything but legit, as for what my IT department has said about the issue when the issue first cropped up I complained about it and the answer I was given was that fixing to configuration to allow for the website to come through is too difficult / time-consuming and that I would have to deal with it or remote desktop to my pc at home. I can do that as a viable option but I'd rather not have to open remote desktop to the internet.

Edit2: Robo thanks for the list I found one on there that works!

i had this problem. i fixed it by using system restore. this originated from a windows security update for office. this is the only thing that worked for me. good luck

Answer:can't turn off align to grid

Glad you fixed it. I don't get Windows update problems because I always turn off automatic updates on every PC I buy or repair for people,But I always install a trusted and reliable security package. Never had any infections or malware for years mate. That's the way to do it. Stuff Windows Updates.

I have a problem I haven't seen anywhere else before. I have Windows XP, and use "My Pictures" for organization and Picasa3 for photo editing. I also downloaded a copy of Irfanview in an attempt to solve the problem but it didn't work.

For one day of photos only (photos taken on subsequent days are fine) the photo image is repeated sixteen times (in a 4 x 4 grid) when viewed in Windows Picture Viewer, Picasa, or Irfanview. The thumbnail is fine - only one copy of the image appears.

Of course, I can 'fix' the problem by cropping the grid image and re-size the resulting image by increasing the pixels. The problems is that when I do that, the image still comes out very small and is more difficult to manipulate with editing, etc.

Does anyone have any idea why this happened for one day only, and also (if possible) how to 'fix' it by having a single image (not the grid) load in viewing/editing software? My battery may have been low the day I took these photos - I can't really remember - but even so, I can't think of of how that would account for the 'grid' images. As far as I'm aware, I didn't change any camera settings on that day.

Thanks so much. I love this site!

I recently removed the S.M.A.R.T. Repair Alert Virus from a friend's computer . There were many setting changes done and I believe I was able to reverse the majority of them. I have one problem I cannot fix and that is regarding desktop icons.

He can no longer arrange his desktop icons in any other pattern than "align to grid". You can uncheck that option, rearrange all the icons and then when the computer is restarted - they all go back and "align to grid" is once again checked.

I have tried several registry edits - and programs to keep the icons in place - all to no avail. Nothing I have tried has worked - do you have any suggestions since I feel certain this problem was created by the S.M.A.R.T. Virus.

He is running Windows XP Pro with Service Pack 3.

Answer:Align to Grid Problem
