The wxWidgets Docs, tutorials and Wiki need a lot of help. Share your knowledge freely. It looks like you're cashing in on the fact that the wxWidgets documentation is a bit sparse. I would agree with you if I was just some guy coming out of the blue (and do, actually... I'm kind of suspicious when...

I think he means a updated version of wxWidgets-book. I'd love to add another (series of sections) to the Experienced Man's Guide to wxBook, covering Stuff That The wxBook Didn't Cover Or Didn't Cover Enough. (Instead of waiting for the 2nd Edition...) I am _very_ interested in people's feedback, e...

Brilliant!

I've just added a sample (the first 15 pages of the book) to the product page.

Thanks for the idea - I hope you like!

ANN: Experienced Man’s Guide To wxBook [PDF]

Today I’m proud to announce a product launch: Experienced Man’s Guide To Cross-Platform Programming with wxWidgets (Announcement Blog Entry) I've been using the wxWidgets book pretty much day in and day out for the last 3 years. It's a good book, but over the course of working in wxWidgets I've disc...

When you say you "don't get the event", do you mean the handler you gave to InstallApplicationEventHandler() never gets called?

My bet is that you're SSHing into a Mac.... obviously there's no window manager then (unlike there might be if you were SSHed into a Linux box and using X11).

My other thought would be to go into the Finder and double-click notebook.app

Hope this helps,

I have a wxHTTPPost class

Also, wxCurl is pretty good - and easier than using curl directly (as I've done both approaches)

Hope this helps

Try to use the open connand instead of launching the app yourself, maybe? wxMacExecute("open ~/Scripts/script1.app") It also just could be due to what you're trying to do (which I don't understand really myself. You're on Machine B and these apps are on Machine A, and you want them to launch on Mach...

Topic: Converting Cocoa XCode app to Multiplatform wxWidgets app

Chris, So i've done a lot of wxMac programming, and a bit of Cocoa programming, so here's my kind of informed answer. If I was going to convert a Cocoa app to wxWidgets, I'd start integrating wxBase into the code. NSString to wxString, NSSocket to wxSocket, you know. You'd probably have to write som...

My thoughts are two fold: a) you don't really want all your dialogs turning into sheets (and what if there's no window up?) b) BUT usually Stefan Csomor (the lead wxMac guy) is really patient about working to get a patch right.

I meant for it to be used in a subclass of wxFrame. It's not that hard :-)

Right, so I guess it's not in wx itself. Apple's Dev Docs should help a bit here, but I think something like this should work (but untested...) bool MySheetWindow::Show(bool visible) { if (visible) { ::ShowSheetWindow( MacGetWindowRef(), GetParent()->MacGetWindowRef() ); Refresh(); } else ::HideShee...

They're called Sheets in OS X Terminology.

I thought there was this capacity in wxMac already, I'll do some more research tonight....

I don't think I understand what you want to do. What should the menu bar change to? What feature are you trying to give the user?
