Re: Interprocess Communication

I've studied the source and just for future reference, here's my findings: wxFile does define a wxFILE_KIND_PIPE for the wxGetFileKind function, but it applies only to __WINDOWS__ and __UNIX__ and is used primarily to determine whether the file is seekable or not (since in these cases, pipes are imp...

Re: Interprocess Communication

No sweat, thanks anyway. I'll look closer into the source.

Re: Interprocess Communication

Thanks, yes I will make contact there in due course. At the moment I'm still just trying to get a sense of how the wx project evolves in general. BTW, are you sure there is no support for named pipes already? I found a previous thread on named pipes http://forums.wxwidgets.org/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=14...

Re: Interprocess Communication

Thanks dm. Is this something that has ever been raised by others? I'm mostly interested in supporting Windows and OSX, so if I wanted to use named pipes or memory-mapped files, would it be a reasonable thing then to have #ifdef sections that switch in the native code of these two platforms? If so, I...

Interprocess Communication

My app is split into client and server processes that both run on the local machine (the server component manages audio streaming output) and I am exploring how they would communicate when I port to wxWidgets. I note that the recommended method for IPC on wxWidgets is to use sockets http://docs.wxwi...

Multiple App Instances on OSX

This question is not specific to wxWidgets, but I'm hoping someone can guide me with advice here. I have an existing Windows application that supports editing multiple documents at the same time, but instead of doing it via an MDI layout, it has SDI operation, and allows multiple instances to be run...

Re: Screenshots for wxWidgets samples

Hey doublemax, thanks the for the reply. I think screenshots would be a really useful addition to the sample page you linked me to. I really wanted to a get a top-level overview of all the samples, with a screenshot to help me remember and find them again, as I need to study each aspect of the wxWid...

Screenshots for wxWidgets samples

I'm seriously interested in using wxWidgets and planning to migrate a set of existing Win32 applications across to achieve OSX versions from the same source. I can see there is an amazing range of samples apps with the distribution, I have built a couple of them, and all is working well. But I would...

wxWidgets Sample Projects on Xcode

Hi all, I have several Windows apps that I have long wanted to port to OSX. After much research, wxWidgets looks to be the best bet, particularly since its structure resembles MFC which I will be porting from, and because of the all the full feature set that I need (web browsers, print preview, help...

Re: XCode not working with wxWidgets

Hey doublemax, thanks for this hot tip. I had thought the samples only came with Visual Studio project files, but you are right, 'minimal' contains Xcode projects as well. Could be a good way forward, but now I'm getting still errors about WxMBConv and references to _iconv. I'll keep struggling with...

XCode not working with wxWidgets

I'm interested in porting a MFC app to OSX and wxWidgets looks like a promising pathway. To help me confirm this, I am trying to build a simple app on both Windows and OSX, with wxWidgets 2.9.4. On Windows, everying works well, I am using VS2008, and the samples compile and run well. On OSX 10.7 wit...
