[ANN] SOCI database access library v4.0.0 is released

Hello,
Even though SOCI is not wxWidgets direct relative library, but it is used by many wxWidgets applications.

I just thought after more than 4 years of waiting for this release, it is worth it to announce it here.
Check it out here: https://github.com/SOCI/soci/releases

Thank you.

Re: Is there any chance that wxWidgets will use its own renderer to draw its own controls like Qt in the future!?

Latest trunk have wxQT port that have been under quiet development. Did you check it? That doesn't mean it is wx own drawing (it is only a third party). Your question ends with Like QT.. By saying like Qt, I meant similar to Qt but proprietary to wxWidgets using its maintained and performant render...

Re: How to use key combination to trigger some hidden functions?

Good,
I am gonna try it.

What about simple key combination like CTRL-SHIFT-D, should I use some accelerator class (I think - which I have never used before) or what else!?

TIA.

How to use key combination to trigger some hidden functions?

Hello,
I need to know how to use key combination to trigger some hidden functions (using only keyboard keys).
When the user press the exact sequence of keyboard keys, a message box will appear telling him if he wants to activate this specific feature (like Debugging mode for example).

TIA.

This library is composed of two files: serialport.h and serialport.cpp . It encapsulates boost::asio::serial_port and adds timeout support and other more useful functions...

Re: What is the correct way of converting a wxString?

strBuf is indeed a wxString used as container, I have updated my question. And yes I am receiving data from an external device. And only these conversions worked for me (notice the cast), any other conversion without any cast didn't work wxString str5((const char *)strBuf.wc_str()); wxString str6((...

What is the correct way of converting a wxString?

Hello, I have written a simple Serial Port wrapper that takes many read function overloads, one of these overloads takes a wxString as parameter. I have learned that I should pass the writable buffer of the wxString like this: wxString strBuf('\0', 1024); wxStringBuffer(strBuf, strBuf.size()); This ...

How to prevent a wxButton from gaining the focus by pressing the TAB from the keyboard?

Hello,
As asked in the title, how to do so, or simply remove this wxButton from the tab navigation order at all, and allow the focus to be set only by a mouse click.

TIA.

Re: [wxMSW][3.1.3] How to Set a wxComboBox item data without getting the wxEVT_TEXT event to be sent?

You solution gave me an idea: May be I can do it like setting a bool member variable like bool m_bSetting to true before Set() and false after it, using the help of wxCriticalSectionLocker or wxMutexLocker and make an if (m_bSetting) check before I call Set() . I haven't tried it yet, but if it won'...
