wxSQLite3 and SQLite3 as static libraries. Information share

Just some suggestions. It took me quite a while to figure out how to compile these objects as part of wxDevC++ and I wanted to share this information. Finally, after much screwing around, I decided to build the source files wxSQLite3.cpp and SQLite3.c as part of my sqltest application. This demonstr...

Multilingual

I'm not an expert on this, but from what I can see, you can set the font and the text. So for germanic/latin based languages, it shouldn't be a problem. You can set the font and the text (can you set the font at runtime?) for labels for example. So, you could set up a class that controls font and te...

Once again, I solved my own problem. Pretty slow response time on this forum :-) I had to totally uninstall my wxDevC++ installation and reinstall the latest again from scratch. This time I also installed the MSW classes (I don't think this made a diff, but you never know). This is time consuming fo...

Creating a new project doesn't seem to work with newest ?

I wanted to create a new static library so I selected create new project. A window popped up with different options as icons and one was static lib. I selected the static lib. A window appeared where I could select the name of the library. I did that and hit next, and it showed me a file selection b...

Drawing scalable arrows.

I had to create arrows in my own components in a different GUI once upon a time (QNX Photon) and creating arrows for components like a spincontrol or something like that can be very complex. The problem is that if you draw an arrow using just line drawing and fill in the triangle, the result is dist...

Never Mind. I found the solution. I just need to set the flag properties->Label Style->WX_NO_AUTORESIZE to true. Then it works for that wxStaticText.
I found the solution in an older post (I'd never used the search on the forum before....). Thanks.

wxStaticText and wxDevC++ question

I'm using version 7.2.0.2 and when I change the size of a wxStaticText, the text wraps around just like I want it to. When I save it, the .wxform file contains the correct width and height as I entered in the form properties. HOWEVER, when I reload the project, all my wxStaticText objects have the d...

External editor

I like the package, but have had a lot of crashes where I lost my forms (RC5). I suspect these problems have been fixed and just need to get the latest version. One feature I'd love to see (and maybe it already exists) is the ability to use my own editor (VIM) rather than the internal one. The probl...

Is there a site I can submit useful software to?

I may have some software that I may want to contribute, but I don't have the time to productize it for wxWidgets, but I'm willing to give it to you to reuse if you'd like and to productize as a team if you'd like..... e.g. I have a class that you only have to include a .cpp and a .h file to your pro...

I understand...

...about the sizers. wxDevC++ handles sizers in the forms, but the part I'm doing is programmatic. I'm creating a wizard from a dialog full of panels. wxWizard is not to my liking and doesn't have form support....so I had to write my own. Actually, I found it to be less trouble to not use sizers at ...

I'd actually seen that demo Doublemax...and understood it, but it's significant if Alignment only works on vertical sizers.

wxFormDesigner...I use wxDevC++ which has similar controls. I don't think they do much with sizers....I'll have to check that...

Help with simpler minimal sizer problem.

I posted another thread that I closed out because I got the answers I needed and figured I only needed to use one sizer and this is where I'm stuck right now. This problem can be illustrated in a much simpler example.... I have several absolutely positioned panels in a wxDialog. There is one on the ...

I'm mostly an embedded developer and that is where you run into the kinds of problems you are talking about, but that is one a 4MHz PIC processor or something running a GUI on an LCD.

If the sizers are not resizing the panels then they are creating a virtual box inside the panel where they are placing the panel's children and this is smaller than the panel so alignment works in this box....not relative to the panel....as you point out and I pointed out in my last post, I believe ...

I think I have a solution for my unchanging panel size. It's to set the minimum size of the sizer using the sizer->SetMinSize(w,h) function call, or alternatively to use the sizer->SetDimension(x,y,w,h) to force position and size. Combining that with the panel->SetMinSize and SetMaxSize, I believe I...
