To send a Private Message ("PM"), just click on the "PM" link just at the bottom of a post made by the user you want to send the message to. For example, to send a PM to me, you'd click on the "PM" link just below this text 8)

Project not dead, only slightly delayed...

Hello ezequielv, this stuff seems rather nice for wxWidgets users. But now there are more than 2 month since the last post. Is there an chance, to get acess to your code, ezequielv? Sorry, I've been busy :? (setting up Gentoo Linux at my laptop and struggling with the dodgy hardware it has). Howeve...

the wxWidgets core devs use CppUnit. I actually prefer something a little lighter and use a modified version of Chuck Allison's TestSuite, from an article in the C++ Users Journal. With a small GUI wrapper around this, to run my unit tests I simply launch my main program, and click the "Test" butto...

All those projects spring from one and the same script you are using. The OS dependent flags are kept abstract by shared directives so you don't have to figure that out. So with one script this all is maintained. For example, I had wxTreeMultiCtrl and could only test it on linux and win32. Someone ...

I wanted to reply to this post. YES I am interested. You should however document it very well, and provide a few samples. If you want this to be accepted by the wxWidgets community it should also fit in the contrib model (dir structure) so Julian or who else can easily fit it in when it is really u...

As for OnNotify I think you can substitute any other event for that it depends on what you want to "notify". It might be a usful addition to wxWidgets to send user notification messages to controls, but they would be more generic, so you can attach a class or what else. Please see Observer pattern ...

bool CMainApp::OnInit() { //... m_pCreateProject->ShowModal(); SetTopWindow(m_pCreateProject); return 0; //... } It's at least suspicious that you call wxDialog::ShowModal() in your OnInit() function. Your OnInit() function won't be resumed until the user closes the dialog there, thus (probably) re...

Observer pattern (aka. Notifications) for wxWidgets

Hi. I've recently developed (not finished yet, I'm just polishing everything before releasing it) a group of classes for implementing the observer pattern and event forwarding under wxWidgets. The idea is to implement notifications using the event system that wxWidgets provides. Furthermore, it allo...

Every good compiler today supports the STL library. STL classes/templates are very optimized and usually perform great. I suggest you learn how to use it, since even wxWidgets will use it. I personally know that it is supported under Linux/FreeBSD/Windows/MacOS X. I find it hard to believe you'll n...

Botton line, the people that you talk to will only hear what they want to hear. I used to rewrite some of our MFC utilities in wxWidgets to show the ease of use and a completely native feeling interface. The response was "Why would we trust this utility that you wrote over the weekend when we have ...

Lawyers?

Hi. Thanks a lot for all of your posts! The other thing that I was "given" today as a strong argument against using wxWidgets (or any other non-Microsoft library, as they are already accepted by the company, although nobody could tell me why) is that we have no legally authoritative opinion that the...

wxWidgets license issues - source code

I'm having a really hard time introducing wxWidgets to my company (see this thread ). Amongst the objections I'm getting, there's the issue on source code distribution. What happens if: * your application is not open source, it is commercial. * you have modified some of the wxWidgets source files to...

Don't forget to check: ::wxEntry() documentation. I'm maintaining an MFC application and I will try to convert it to wxWidgets-only in the future. So far, what I've had to do is: non-MFC specific: 1. Create my app class and put the DECLARE_APP() macro in the header file for that class. 2. Put the IM...
