It probably would indeed work.
A thread would indeed work, as long as you're sure that you either don't need the arr object or that the main thread won't access it until MyApp.exe is done writing to it.

It seems to be a good idea to always make the main thread wait (for example, at wxFrame::OnClose()) until all the other threads have been deleted. If this doesn't help, I would suspect the wxThread::Entry() entry points. Check that they all end deterministically. PS: wxThread::Kill() usually is a ba...

Thanks for that link, but I've googled for it before, and I'd rather stick with a wxWidgets-only solution for the same problem. Linking to MFC code can get me in trouble (read as "take too much time") for what I'm trying to make. I've read a bunch of threads for the same suggestion. It seems that th...

wxActiveXContainer: Help needed

Hi all, Been a long time, and I'm here asking for your help again. I've been trying to display a PDF Reader ActiveX control in a wxPanel (using the wxActiveXContainer) into one of my applications, but without any success. I even tried using the wxMediaCtrl example that the documentation features, bu...

Ribbon interface - Is it going to get emulated in wxWidgets?

Hey guys,

Just wondering... Does anyone know of any work being done on emulating the Office2007 Ribbon interface? It seems it's going to become the next standard interface in Windows 7, so I can't really imagine wxWidgets 3 not having it. :)

size_t is the most sensible way to handle counting. I also think a wx::npos constant should be introduced to handle errors accordingly to the change and further improve compatibility with the STL.

AkiraDev, this is the real example of microsoft security push after 2000 http://www.informationweek.com/story/showArticle.jhtml?articleID=175801215&cid=RSSfeed_IWK_news Instead of actually proving your point, you choose to attack *NIX systems with vague numbers.

Firstly, just because microsoft adds new functions to C++ does not make C++ a proprietary language. GCC also has their own extensions to C and presumably C++ as well, does anybody accuse them of having a proprietary C++? You missed the part where I mention that standard extensions - not replacement...

Your poll and question are both different. I don't see any harm in using safe strings function instead of regular one. The latest C++ standard also talks about that, the other compiler vendors are too slow to pick. If you have knowledge of various security vunerabilty and are working on some secure...

I'm still all for a RSS reader project. We could use wxMozilla for a browser, and for IE lovers, a frame embedded with IE.
