setting property values

Nov 13, 2009 at 1:14 PM

Hello everyone,

if you take a look at the following script, you see it creating a Form, setting the title of the form and showing it.

            JintEngine jint = new JintEngine();

            string script = "var frm = new System.Windows.Forms.Form(); frm.Text = 'Testing...'; frm.ShowDialog();";

            object result = jint.Run(script);

The problem however is that the Title property is never set.

You should send it to the Windows Forms team at Microsoft ;) Because that's the way Form.Text behaves, and it shows how Jint can be powerful !

Try typing your code without Jint, you will see the same result.

Thanks for the quick reply sebastienros!

I am a little confused by your response. Are you implying that the following code is not equivalent to the javascript I have posted above?

Form frm = new System.Windows.Forms.Form();

frm.Text = "Testing...";

Both codes are equivalent, and if you run the second block without Jint, you will have the same exact result: Title of the form will change, because you set the Text property.

Thanks sebastienros,

Sorry for the confusion, maybe I wasn't clear in my question.

The issue I have at the moment is that the title of the form created using jint is NOT set (there is no value in the title bar) whereas the C# example creates the form with the value "Testing..." in the title bar.

Now I see ;) Sorry, I though it was modified. I will check that part.
