I want to set a mask or transparency colour so that the background of the icons is transparent and the colour of the toolbar shows through. I can't work out how to do this successfully for bo...

wxwidgets and sdl/sdl2 (linux and windows) - no sdl events

Hi, I am trying to use wxwidgets and sdl (or sdl2) together. I am using sdl events. I poll the events during the idle time of my app and handle them (I am specificaly interested in keyboard and joystick input). If the sdl/sdl2 window is created separately then all is good on Linux and windows. sdl o...
