I was thinking about what to post and I’ve got nice twits like this one:

@sbohlen I am quite impressed by this http://bit.ly/ci3fxn Its no #balsamiq but its still amazing (and free); runs in and OUT of your browser

So why not to try that thing. So I installed Pencil add-on.

Here is screenshot of my try:

Toolbar on the left is rich of different shape collections. Sadly I did not find one for UML diagrams, but they could be easily added and that is great.

So this is the simplest way to have light prototyping machine just in your browser.

Button in pressed/unpressed state in System.Windows.Forms

January 26, 2010 QuickTip, UI, WindowsForms No comments

Do you want to see your button to be in pressed or unpressed state when you hit it once?

Did you catch that this behavior is not really button’s behavior – it is more checkBox’s behavior.

So to accomplish your goal you need move checkBox to your form and set appearance from “Normal” to “Button”. Like here:

System.Windows.Forms.CheckBox checkBox1 = new System.Windows.Forms.CheckBox();
checkBox1.Appearance = System.Windows.Forms.Appearance.Button;

Kick me if you don’t want to see such posts on my blog. :)
