Re: Current status of wxWidgets with MinGW based compilers

I'm not sure if you're aware of this, but wxWidgets has some AppVeyor CI builds setup that are constantly monitoring merged commits and pull requests for MinGW (32bit), MSYS2 (64bit), and Cygwin. Builds are found here: https://ci.appveyor.com/project/wxWidgets/wxwidgets Environment details here: htt...

Re: Show/Hide from parent element doens't completely hide children

If you don't have both panels in a sizer, you should only have *one* panel as a child of any top level window, regardless of whether one is hidden or not. wxWidgets does some magic sizing for a single child window that isn't in a sizer, and you're likely confusing it. I would second the recommendati...

Re: Best Cross Platform Build Approach?

Atom CPU and virtualization? Ouch. Don't even bother with a virtual machine, your only option is to just dual boot. Using something like VirtualBox on an Atom CPU could easily take half a day just to compile wxWidgets. Even using VirtualBox / VMWare / or some other kind of virtual machine other than...

Re: Best Cross Platform Build Approach?

If you only have one computer, consider setting it up to dual-boot both Windows and Linux, and just use your VCS (i.e. git) to sync up your code. You'll want the extra CPU power necessary for compiling the code that you lose while compiling code inside of a virtual machine.

Re: Visual C and Link-time Code Generation

As far as I understand it, if you're building and linking wxWidgets as a dynamic DLL library, it's likely not going to make a difference. It might if you're linking statically to wxWidgets, but really, don't bother unless you're you really are able to find a significant boost in performance. It is k...

The server hosting our online documentation, wiki, and forums will be undergoing some critical security updates within a two hour window starting at: 2015-10-20 2:00:00 AM UTC Expected downtime should be no more than 20 to 30 minutes or so. This is in response to some Xen Security Advisories which w...

Re: Printing a logo in every page of a document

I don't think that's possible with wxRichTextPrinting. It's really designed to make printing ridiculously easy since it's extremely complicated to handle printing yourself using wxPrintout, but in this case, if you really want to power to make customizations like rendering images in headers or foote...

Re: How to detect if Modal dialog is open within application

The best idea I could maybe come up with is to use FindFocus(), and check if the containing top level window is a wxDialog, and checking that for wxDialog::IsModal(). That sounds like a fairly unreliable solution though (just because it's modal doesn't mean it necessarily has focus), and it would be...

Re: wxgrid native look

Most of wxGrid is a generic widget. The native equivalent controls to use as an alternative are often wxListCtrl and the newer wxDataViewCtrl. Both are often much more limited in terms of customization, but that's because the native controls for each platform are significantly less customizable (as ...

Re: * if it possible to create a word docs using wxWidgets in Windows?

Assuming you were to also pull in a 3rd party library that could generate the Word document from raw text, or shell out to a utility to do it, yes, but wxWidgets does not have that ability itself.

Re: Building wxWidgets for Windows

Do you actually have Cygwin or MinGW installed? That looks like a standard command prompt, which these instructions don't apply to, and where you likely don't even have gcc in your PATH. Second, you didn't even follow the instructions correctly: It asked you to create "build-debug" directo...

Re: Is there a QObject class constructor similar in wxWidgets? [SOLVED]

It's a very nice feature to not have to free the objects you've created - I assume the Qt developers thought so as well, so they implemented it. You are basically talking about a core language feature, so I still don't see why a GUI toolkit should be responsible for providing this functionality. Ho...

Re: Any plans to port wxWidgets to Ios,Android or WinRt?

Either way is pretty horrible; the NDK stresses that you really shouldn't be writing apps for Android in C++ unless you have to. I always think that the disparity in interfaces and Android activity program flow would be a real barrier to wxWidgets. That's pretty much how I feel about it as well. Qt...
