Hi I use these function to indicate I have a dirty form,

All works ok excepet that the DataBindong is triggering the events when I change the tab in my form

I have 3 tabs with controls on, and all are using DataBinding.

Here is the code:

Any tips how I can solve this.? (Maybe a something that is saying that DataDinding is updating so I can skip the dirty flag in that moment)

 
''' <summary>

    ''' Loop thru all controls and add a handler to the controls that needs to be watched

    ''' </summary>

    Private Sub AddChangedHandler(ByVal ctlX As Control)

        For Each ctrl As Control In ctlX.Controls

            Application.DoEvents()

            If TypeOf ctrl Is TextBox Then

                AddHandler CType(ctrl, TextBox).TextChanged, AddressOf Datachanged

            ElseIf TypeOf ctrl Is System.Windows.Forms.ComboBox Then

                AddHandler CType(ctrl, System.Windows.Forms.ComboBox).SelectedIndexChanged, AddressOf Datachanged

            ElseIf TypeOf ctrl Is RadioButton Then

                AddHandler CType(ctrl, RadioButton).Click, AddressOf Datachanged

            ElseIf TypeOf ctrl Is DomainUpDown Then

                AddHandler CType(ctrl, DomainUpDown).SelectedItemChanged, AddressOf Datachanged

            ElseIf TypeOf ctrl Is NumericUpDown Then

                AddHandler CType(ctrl, NumericUpDown).ValueChanged, AddressOf Datachanged

            ElseIf TypeOf ctrl Is CheckBox Then

                AddHandler CType(ctrl, CheckBox).Click, AddressOf Datachanged

            Else

                AddChangedHandler(ctrl)

            End If

        Next

    End Sub

 

    ''' <summary>

    ''' Data is changed on a control, set flag

    ''' </summary>

    Private Sub Datachanged(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)

        If m_blnSkipDataChange Or String.IsNullOrEmpty(m_EmployNr) Then

            m_blnDirty = False

        Else

            m_blnDirty = True

        End If

    End Sub

funny.. ;)

Because of all the controls I use it's to easy for query faults, databinding solves that.  There are changes pretty often, controls are being added or removed, and if not databinding, I need to recreate the querys every time.and check so all the querys work.. (SELECT,DELETE,UPDATE) To much work..

And we are taking about a total of 80 controls +/- 10. So Databinding is the best solution for this applicaiton.

So no tips how to solve this with databinding..

There are separate events like "Enter" is fired when we navigate the Tabs. We can place proper conditions there to avoid data binding ?

I don't want to avoid the databinding, I just want to avoid setting the form to dirty if not the user has changed any values

And I added some code for you to test.
 
   Private Sub AddChangedHandler(ByVal ctlX As Control)

        For Each ctrl As Control In ctlX.Controls

            If ctrl.HasChildren Then

                AddChangedHandler(ctrl) ' recurse into another container

            Else

                Select Case TypeName(ctrl)

                    Case "CheckBox"

                        AddHandler CType(ctrl, CheckBox).Click, AddressOf Datachanged

                    Case "ComboBox"

                        AddHandler CType(ctrl, ComboBox).SelectedIndexChanged, AddressOf Datachanged

hmm if I have 2 tabs. and changes a value an the first tab page the forms gets dirty as it should.

 But if i then change tab to make a change on the next tab the form get set to not dirty.that is not correct.

 The form should be dirty if the the user has change any data undtil the user saves it or interact with a dialog that asks if the user wants to save the employe bofore the chnges is lost.

any tips?
