Thanks a bunch Tan. It worked.

WOW this is not even close to what I thought you would need to do. Seems strange that there is not an InsertItemBefore() method. This is not straight forward that one would need to loop to get the position.

wxTreeCtrl InsertItem in the previos location

This may be a very stupid question, but how do I insert an item in the previous location. The docs say there is an overload of 'InsertItem" that takes a 'size_t' and that will insert before the "previous", but I can not figure out how to get a wxTreeItemId (which most methods return) to a size_t. An...

I am playing with wxFormBuilder but it lacks a few crucial features (admittedly they might add them if I suggest, but I need to convert my dialogs now if I am going to do it), I have given the commercial tools a run, but I wont pay what they are asking for them. I dont mind hand rolling my dialogs ...

Re: Some comments of my own

1) Is there any feature in one that is not present in the other? 1. The clear separation of the GUI code and your event and application code. 2. I feel that being just a GUI editor is a plus, but I could see that some might not. Meaning wxFormBuilder does not control compilers in any way, it just f...

I really suggest wxFormBuilder. :) (I am a developer of wxFB) We release about every two weeks while moving towards the official release of 3.0. It is very stable now. Almost complete for 3.0 It has a very good separation the GUI generation code and the code you implement. Plus it is the only GUI ed...

Feel free to get help on the wxFormBuilder forum. That is a better location to get specific wxFormBuilder help then a general wxWidgets forum.

See you there. :wink:

I have been waiting to hear this. I want to use your editor control in another application. Is the control ready for heavy use? Is it easy to build? Actually, I could use LiteEditor if it can be made to fire off a scripting engine exe and catch the output. Is that possible today?

I don't remember the reasons, but it comes compiled with wxPack. It is part of the wxAdditions install. You can also just access the source from here:

Hope this helps.

You need to make sure that you set the project setting "Configuration Properties->C/C++->Language->Treat wchar_t as a Built-in Type" to "No" for proper compatibility with wxPack.

I recommend wxFormBuilder. It is free, fast, cross-platform, and extendable.

Look at a few of the wiki articles about how to get started.

The nightly builds are pretty solid. I would recommend you use those.

You could also try TinyXML++

It has a great C++ interface to the XML.
