Thanks to Bob and others for trying this out!

And yes, wxActiveXContainer should be exported someplace; there are a lot of reasons why it was not but I guess that is ancient history now.

Oddly enough though I thought FOR SURE it worked in 7... guess I was wrong.

I am on WinXP and have Acrobat Reader 8. If I go into IE7 Manage Addons it lists Adobe PDF Reader as Enabled. Anything else I can check? It may sounds wierd - but within the program's options itself it sometimes has (depending on version) an option to disable the ActiveX component (the adobe websit...

It returns E_NOINTERFACE which I assume means I need the full version of Acrobat. Thats lame. Anybody know of another way? Acrobat Reader should be fine. Keep in mind you need to enable the ActiveX control- sometimes (depending on version) this is an option in the options menu of Acrobat Reader. Ei...

I'd try CVS as I think this was fixed very recently by Robert (the main wxGTK guy).

If that still doesn't work then I'd definately file a bug report :D.

Re: wxMac Drawers [SOLVED]

In short it should work just fine and is in include/wx/mac/carbon/drawer.h you'll need to include the adv lib in addition to base and core if you are using the seperate libs :D. ---- Long story is that ABX, another wxWidgets developer smoothed out a nice drawer sample - unfortunately something happe...

Maybe mb_str is the issue - in unicode builds it returns wxCharBuffer, and in ANSI the calls you make will do nothing (i.e. just the same as c_str). So, you should probably just be calling c_str instead and making sure the compilation is right; or, if you need utf8 youll need a roundtrip conversion ...

Remember that paint events are only sent when the window actually needs painting while idle events are sent all the time 8).

You could try using a wxStopWatch and draw it at a defined interval :).

The attachments are pruned (I assume oldest goes first) when the storage of all attachments goes >50Mb.
