I have a Window Form that includes a ElementHost as the same size as the DatePicker that I have specified as its child. (109x24)
The problem is that although the DatePicker looks fine while in the studio, when actually run the text box width is about 24px with a approximate 40px space followed by the calendar button (which is now positioned about 3 or 4px lower than in the studio)
and the remainder of the Elementhost is again blank? What gives?
Check out this image of what I am talking about -
I have tried messing with the min/max Height/Width as well as setting the actual size and nothing seems to matter. Again its perfect in the studio - just not sure why its so messed up when running the application. Has anyone seen anything
like this or have any suggestions on how I can force the position of the textbox and icon to where they should be?
Also, why is that the width and height settings do nothing in the case where its a child to ElementHost? I suspect its completely related to the use of a ElementHost as I use the same control in other WPF application and it works great.
private Microsoft.Windows.Controls.DatePicker dateTimePicker_DateOfBirth;
this.dateTimePicker_DateOfBirth = new Microsoft.Windows.Controls.DatePicker();
this.elementDatePicker.BackColor = System.Drawing.SystemColors.Window;
this.elementDatePicker.ForeColor = System.Drawing.SystemColors.WindowText;
this.elementDatePicker.MinimumSize = new System.Drawing.Size(109, 0);
this.elementDatePicker.Name = "elementDatePicker";
this.elementDatePicker.Child = this.dateTimePicker_DateOfBirth;
