Truly free doesn't impose limits like gpl does. Couldn't agree more. I know that GPL is all the rage with the kids these days but I also don't care much for it. Glad to find someone else that thinks that. GPL is great as long as you do not open your mailbox and see all the bills to be payed... :win...

And, yes, after that: Has anybody had success on linking wxWidgets with stlport?
I find mingw own STL perfectly OK. I used with success STLport with Visual C++ 6 (but in that case what was provided had only a faint resemblance to STL... :wink: ).

Delete RC2 and get the nightly builds http://forums.codeblocks.org/index.php?board=20.0.

Nightlies are enormously more advanced than RC2 (which dates oct 25, 2005) and are most times rock solid.

In the debug build you have to define (compile options) the symbol __WXDEBUG__.

I see .NET, I see paradigm changes, I see new ways of developing code where the datamodelling becomes more important then the functionality, a lot of things are done automated, made transparent, etc. My main concern with C++ in general, and wxWidgets specifically, is that in future development, it ...

When you Add() widgets, you specify a weight for expansion (the 1 in the call) equal for both items, so they occupy each 50% (1 / (1 + 1)). You have to specify different weights; e.g. setting 1 and 2 would give 1/3 to the first widget and 2/3 to the other one.

FLTK is a wrapper upon native API's like wxWidget (just much, much thinner); you would add nothing from implementing wxWidgets on top of FLTK.

Always use sizers; they handle all the problems auto-magically. If you need an unresizable window, just select a non-resizing border for the top containing window: at creation time, all controls and containers and sizers do they business and the user cannot change anything. By the way, another reaso...

Execeptions and threads live on "different planets" :wink:.

Exceptions are handled unwinding your execution stack up to the point where you catch them; each thread has its own stack so there is no possible communication, unless resorting to message queue and the like.

It's long time I am no more a Borland customer because, they are used to wake up in the morning and decide some business strategy shift which destroys all your investments in their tools... so now they are stopping IDEs? for sure Delphi users will be delighted...
