Hi Tony You also need to define the colours that attach to particular styles and then instruct the control to repaint. Can't write in detail right now, but for a (rather untidy) attempt at using XmlCtrl, see: http://xml-copy-editor.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/xml-copy-editor/src/xmlctrl.h http://xml-...

What you see at the start of your file is the UTF-8 byte order mark. (I know it's redundant as UTF-8 consists of chains of single-byte units, but some processors _require_ a UTF-8 BOM which is why many editors offer to put it in.) One way of handling this is to strip out the byte order mark before p...

Would like to revive Trikko's request - Scintilla has seen * crucial improvements in Unicode handling * separation of style bytes and doc bytes so it's possible to add more indicators for HTML/XML docs recently and I think lots of wxW application are missing out because wxStyledTextCtrl is still sev...

How to catch bad_alloc (or other exceptions) on Linux?

How do I catch exceptions thrown from the main application frame (the MyFrame class in my case)? On XP this works fine but on Linux I get a segfault (the exception just isn't caught).

Where can I find an example that shows me how to get around this?

Thanks!

Can't test this right now, but I seem to remember L':' works ok. I've certainly used L"foobar" for Unicode string comparisons in the past.

You need to include <wx/msw/wx.rc> to get XP controls.

See http://wxwidgets.org/docs/faqmsw.htm#winxp for details.

The easiest route is to display the file in a wxStyledTextCtrl window and apply the XML lexer (if you need sample code, let me know).

Just set the window to read-only and you're on your way.

As you say, the gettext route is failsafe (and I wouldn't call this solution a hack), but there simply has to be a way of doing this in the source file (though not necessarily in the IDE). It could be something as simple as a missing byte order mark at the start of the file. Perhaps the IDE defaults...

You could experiment with source file encodings a little. On MinGW and Dev-C++, for example, Unicode characters need to be entered as UTF-8 even though the IDE displays them as multibyte garbage. I would have expected Visual C++ to handle Unicode characters entered in the IDE out of the box, but it'...

Incremental find/replace pane with regex

In case anyone else isn't 100% happy with the built-in find/replace dialog, this panel is intended as a drop-in replacement. It uses the standard wxFindReplaceData class so you shouldn't need to change your main frame's find/replace handlers much. (There are some differences, e.g. you will need to d...

Catching Escape in a wxFrame with menubar

I think this subject has come up before, but can't seem to find a solution anywhere.

Esc as a menu shortcut never worked on Linux, but was ok up to 2.6.3 on Windows I think. From 2.7 onwards, Windows no longer recognizes Esc.

I'd ask the same. If you're interested in incremental find/replace panes for wxStyledTextCtrl (supporting regular expressions), I could post a cheap and cheerful wxPanel-derived solution that works with wxAUI. It's very new and might be buggy (only released it yesterday), but seems to work ok so far...
