Re: Issues with Enhanced wxTreeListCtrl

When the text is too wide to fit in a column, ellipsis appear but they truncate the string leaving only the first character rather than fitting as much text as possible before the ellipsis. I got to the bottom of this one. Line 4128: text = MakeShortString(dc,text,col_w-x,0); Should simply be: text...

Re: How to implement a display according to my concept?

The rest could be normal textfields but how could these controls be stacked? If I understand correctly, you are asking how to make a new component that is composed of multiple components. You can look at wxSpinCtrl for an example as that is a combination of a wxSpinButton and a textbox. It's defini...

Issues with Enhanced wxTreeListCtrl

First of all, thanks a lot Guru for this enhancement. I'm looking to build upon what you have done and enhance it further. Hopefully you will be interested in collaborating so that we can have a single "enhanced" version. But that will come later, I'm just beginning to do some proof-of-concept. As I...

Thank you both for your replies. I understand that many GUI builders allow for adding new controls that they don't support out of the box. I have in fact done this in the past in DialogBlocks with a custom wxGrid I worked on. I was coming from a different angle. I decided that GUI designer support w...

Do any GUI builders support wxDataViewCtrl?

I need an advanced grid and I'm evaluating whether to extend wxGrid, extend Enhanced wxTreeListCtrl or try my hand at wxDataViewCtrl. Support for wxDataViewCtrl seems to be a bit scarce at the moment. Neither wxFormBuilder nor DialogBlocks appear to support it. Can anyone recommend a GUI builder tha...

You could probably accomplish this with panels and just showing one while hiding the others.

Like biplab said, you just need to install the Platform SDK. Look on the internet for instructions. I think your best bets boil down to this for compilers on Windows: VC++ : Best compiler for Windows (except for maybe Intel but that one is $$$). Compiles fast and produces small executables. - OR - G...

You might be able to use wxAny for the ID and then within the even handler check whether it's the ID that you want.

My suggestion would be to leave the editor be shown only when needed as it is now. What you really want is the editor to appear on single click rather than double click. That would be a much simpler solution to your problem and give you the same results. You will likely have to modify the wxGrid sou...

Why does this work? Because of an oddity in wx's event handling mechanism. In most (all?) GUI frameworks, events propagate by default. You have to explicitly stop the propagation. In wx, it's backwards, you have to explicitly force the propagation of events with the event.Skip() call. Not sure why ...
