Overlay busy/loading animation

Hello, Is this possible: Create a largish 'loading' animation on top of the primary UI when a long operation is executing. The rest of the UI would be grayed out, still visible but couldn't be used. This is pretty fancy stuff so if you can think of something close to this I'm also interested. Is it ...

Solution

The solution I ended up using is very simple:
Register the idle event.
Catch the first and do what must be done.
Ignore the rest (could've also unbind).

Works like a charm.
I don't think it's "elegant" but it's close enough.

Thanks! Even if not elegant, it's something. Before I had nothing. That's an infinite improvement :)

How to call method immediately when GUI is visible?

Hello, I have a refresh button in my GUI, and in all use cases the first thing the user does is push that button. I'm now trying to automatically do it. But refreshing takes a couple of seconds. During that time many users will go to start menu and click again. How can I show the GUI and then immedi...

Re: How to change UI language at runtime

Seems like the way to go. Thanks!

How to change UI language at runtime

Hello,

what is the way to switch between UI languages at runtime by e.g. selecting a menu item? Apparently you can set the locale only once .. Currently I'm setting the localization when the app starts.

Re: Object attributes and events

Thank you PB and JimFairway! The part about event sinks is simple enough and easy to remember. I just didn't consider the possibility that when you define an event handler, it'll execute the method in question in another object entirely! Didn't know that was even possible because to my under- standi...

Re: Object attributes and events

Hi, I think you want: button->Connect(wxEVT_COMMAND_BUTTON_CLICKED,wxCommandEventHandler(App::buttonClicked),NULL,this); That tells the button to send its event to the wxApp object. Hope that helps, Jim Hmm .. thanks for the advice. I believe your way is exactly the same as mine, just formulated in...

Object attributes and events

The problem was that I was connecting a button clicked event with the button itself. When I did that, the boost::weak_ptr attribute was messed up. Why does it matter will I connect to the button or to the object which holds the weak_ptr? The code should illustrate. I have commented out the problemat...

Do you need a cross-platform solution?

How to draw colored border around wxTextCtrl ?

Hello,

I was thinking about what's the best way to let the user know that value inserted into a text control is invalid. Draw a red border around the control of course. What are the ways in which this can be done ?

Solution: disabled scrollbar in wxScrolledWindow

I have solved the problem.
Here's hierarchical structure without sizers:
wxPanel
wxChoicebook
wxScrolledWindow
many other wid

The problem was that when adding the wxScrolledWindow instances, their parent
wasn't the wxChoicebook but the wxPanel.

Disabled scrollbar in wxScrolledWindow

Hello,

I have wxScrolledWindows inside wxChoiceBook.
They are added as pages at runtime.
I am able to scroll with mouse wheel after getting
the focus by pressing tab enough times. I cannot
however use the vertical scrollbar in any way.

Any ideas why ?
