Compiling wxWidgets on Win32: DLLs Installed to ${PREFIX}/lib

I apologize for this question because I am sure it has been answered more than once, but I haven't been able to find an answer myself. I am compiling wxWidgets 3.1.2 on Windows under MSYS2/MinGW-w64 . I have no problems compiling. The only issue is that in the make install command, the .dll files ar...

Re: wxRichTextCtrl Text Not Centering

You need a matching EndAlignment() call. It didn't work with this changes either. But if called Newline/0 style works as expected. Adding a new line after the text worked for me. Thank you Kvaz1r. te->WriteText("Hello rich text!\n"); or te->WriteText("Hello rich text!"); te->Newline(); --- Edit ---...

wxRichTextCtrl Text Not Centering

I'm trying to center justify the text of a wxRichTextCtrl. The docs say to use wxRichTextCtrl::StartAlignment(wxTEXT_ALIGNMENT_CENTER) , but it's not working: #include <wx/wx.h> #include <wx/richtext/richtextctrl.h> class Window : public wxFrame { public: Window(); private: wxRichTextCtrl* te; }; Wi...

Parsing and Displaying Markdown File

Does wxWidgets have an implementation or method for displaying Markdown text? I see in STC library there are some defines that mention Markdown. Is there a flag that can be set for wxStyledTextCtrl that makes it parse Markdown? I haven't found anything yet in the documentation for that. Edit: Oh, I ...

Re: Custom Event Isn't Being Caught

Can you make simple compilable app which demonstrates your problem. That way one can easily test and see the issue. Linking old code does not help and is waste of time for people who try to help! Only the first link was to my old code. I'm using Git version control hosting on GitHub. So to see the ...

Re: Custom Event Isn't Being Caught

Thank you, but that is old code, & none of that helps me with the question of this topic.

--- Edit ---

I only linked to my old code to show the examples of how posting custom events was working.

Re: Custom Event Isn't Being Caught

... If you still support <wx3 ... Nope, I don't support wx 2.x anymore. Changed my code to use Bind instead of Connect :).

Re: Custom Event Isn't Being Caught

Thank you for that information. If that is the case, why haven't they deprecated Connect yet?

Re: Custom Event Isn't Being Caught

Not answering the question, but was wondering why don't you use Bind! I haven't studied the difference between Bind & Connect . Is one preferred for certain situations over the other? All I know is that "Bind" has something to do with "dynamically" connecting the event. --- Edit --- Oh, I guess the...

Re: wxEVT_LEFT_DOWN on menuBar

I think this is because of wxMenuBar 's implicit handling of mouse events. I'm not sure how you would override it. Tested it out with this code: #include <iostream> #include <wx/wx.h> using namespace std; class MyFrame : public wxFrame { public: MyFrame(); private: void OnLeftDown(wxMouseEvent& even...

Re: Custom Event Isn't Being Caught

wxCommandEvent SoundFinishEvent(wxEVT_NULL, ID_SOUNDEND); ID and event type are in the wrong order here. Switching them doesn't fix it: wxCommandEvent SoundFinishEvent(ID_SOUNDEND, wxEVT_NULL); According to the docs , wxEventType is the first argument, & id is the second. Here is some test code tha...

Custom Event Isn't Being Caught

I'm reworking an old project & have moved some code around. My MainWindow class used to post a custom event, when a secondary thread finished, to the main thread. Example: abc.cpp (catching event) ( source ): Connect(wxID_ANY, ID_KEY, wxCommandEventHandler(MainWindow::ChangeLetter), 0, this); abc.cp...

Re: How to embed fonts into your Windows programs.

Thank you Dark Alchemist. This worked for me. I had also tried using AddFontResource , but couldn't get that one to work. I like this better anyway because the font is actually embedded into the executable. For anyone using wxWidgets 3.1.1, the static method wxFont::AddPrivateFont has been added. Un...
