DropDownList in a popup window behavior

I have a popup window(calendar control) which contains a drop-down-list with many items in it. The problem occurs when I try to select the year 1930, which is outside of the popup frame:




This close the the entire popup window instead of selecting the year 1930 as expected (well, I did anyway). I tried to cancel the event from bubbling, to set the height of the select object (doesn’t work), you name it !

*btw*: I don’t want to change the entire flow or to work with a different window model – to much work.

Any ideas ??


Invalid access to memory location. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x800703E6) in Microsoft.SqlServer.Replication

My team use the Sql Server 2005 Replication feature in order to synchronize between databases in different enviornments. One of the strange things though, is that the reference to Microsoft.SqlServer.Replication generated a weird “Invalid access to memory location. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x800703E6)” Error. After a quick google search I found this link which offers a nice workaround (this seems to be VS.NET 2005 bug) which worked for several folks out there but unfortunately it didn’t work for me. The search continues…
