Re: Manually calling an Event Handler Function?

for multi-thread signaling I use QueueEvent so that the UI functions get called from the UI thread. If its all on the same thread, then I will either call the function directly with a dummy parameter, or do what PB suggests. For me the choice depends on whether or not the code in question does any w...

Re: Scroll checklistbox by dragging?

what I have done in the past is use the wxEVT_MOTION event, with the caveat that my system's touchscreen registers as a mouse. You may find that you need to bind the OnMotion function recursively starting with your parent container, otherwise if the drag starts on a text item, rather than the contai...

Re: wxDirDialog looks strange on win7

Unfortunately it´ll be a pain in the as for me, as I am using wxSmith and mixing autogenerated stuff mixed with manual stuff can be problematic sometimes. protip: build out your ui first, then copy all the generated files into a new project using a standard IDE and work from there. That way if you ...

Re: Show/Hide controls

Hi, Nunki, The book you are talking abouit is seriously outdated. Just look at the year it was published. As much as I don't disagree, I still think there is some value to spending the 3 or 4 hours it takes to read the wxwidgets book when you are starting from zero wxwidgets experience. As old as i...

Re: Why do they switch from wxWidgets?

because c++ is a "difficult" programming language and as such requires a skilled programmer.

Python and JS can be used by anyone who knows how to type.

Re: Reading file created with wxDataOutputStream::WriteString

Sorry I wasnt reading fully, just skimming. I guess what you want then would be something like std::stringstream ss; { std::ifstream file(filename, std::ifstream::in | std::ios::binary); ss << file.rdbuf(); } but i think your issue //try to read the rest of the file. const std::string s(std::istream...

Re: Connect problem

the square ... is not a frame but a shape just on wxPaintDC, so the object itself can not perceive that someone is acting on it. Is my thought correct or wrong? you are correct. In this case, whatever the DC comes from (panel, frame, button, etc) will receive the event. What I would do is make an i...

Re: wxComboBox black panel

I dont want to lead you down a rabbit hole, but my first guess would be that its a theme issue. Like maybe your current theme doesnt specify combobox colors so it defaults to a different theme's settings. the fastest way to test would be to try some other themes and see if it affects the combobob co...

Re: Recommendation for c++ gui builder?

I have always used graph paper to do my initial layouts. Simple, easy-to-use, rarely crashes. ;) +1 for graph paper, even though I prefer engineering paper to graph paper. Either way, Its super handy to be able to just sketch out what you want and send that up the chain for design approval rather t...

Re: Need wxSingleChoiceDialog using wxHtmlListBox?

I'd probably put the "more meaningful description" as both a tooltip on mouse over and as a separate text field placed somewhere reasonable on the GUI upon selection of a test.
