Re: wxWidgets Shared Library and Linux

Thank you both for the replies so far! I was able to (properly this time) set the rpath for my binary so that it finds our custom wxWidgets libs included with the app. So I think that's a viable solution. As you pointed out I will still need to build for distros that are very different, but this way...

Re: wxWidgets Shared Library and Linux

Hi, What type of custom changes did you do? Why not submit them as a patch to wxWidgets so that it will be included? Or if they are specific to your application - why not create a child class{es} and update them with you modifications? Thank you. We did create new classes for most of our changes th...

Re: wxWidgets Shared Library and Linux

It's unusual to need to create wx static builds on linux, but it's perfectly possible. Just add --disable-shared to your configure options. Thank you for the reply! When I searched the forums the consensus was that linking to wxWidgets statically was a bad idea because wxWidgets dependencies would ...

wxWidgets Shared Library and Linux

Hello! I'm trying to figure out the best way to go around distributing wxWidgets as a shared library with my application in Linux (starting with Ubuntu). The reason I can't simply have wxWidgets as a dependency for users to install is that I had to make some custom changes to wxWidgets, so I have to...

Re: Is it possible to disable docking of wxAuiToolbar temporally?

I want to disable the moving of the toolbar temporarily. Is this possible? You should be able to get the pane that corresponds to the toolbar from the AUI manager and change the properties so that it can't be docked, then update the AUI manager. And when you want it to be able to dock again enable ...

Re: wxSplashScreen text + OSX

I don't work under OSX, so these are just wild guesses: - try calling ::wxYield() after Refresh() - try putting the code that uses the wxSplashScreen into wxAppConsole::OnEventLoopEnter() instead of OnInit() I also did drawing tests directly to a splash window's paint DC but it doesn't do anything....

wxSplashScreen text + OSX

Hi, There is an existing topic on this, but it's a few years old so I didn't want to reply there. I'm able to dynamically update the bitmap of my splash screen similarly to how it's described in the topic. However, that seems to work only for Linux and Windows. Under OSX refresh/update doesn't cause...

Re: String related slow with debugger attached

I found something that works around the issue: disabling the debug system heap. I think it doesn't affect our overall ability to debug our app so it solves this issue (I'll post again if I find any issues). http://preshing.com/20110717/the-windows-heap-is-slow-when-launched-from-the-debugger/ https:...

Re: String related slow with debugger attached

Hi, Are you attaching the debugger to the running application or you are trying to start the debug build of the application? Is application MT? Does it have DLLs? Which build of wx do you use - static or dynamic? What SDK you are trying? Do you use C++11? Thank, you. Answers below. Thank you! 0. St...

Re: String related slow with debugger attached

Do you see 100% cpu load (at least on one core)? Did you try profiling the app? Maybe you can see where it spends all the time. * I see a CPU spike, but not above 10%. * While the application writes the XML document it blocks and it seems to spend most of its time inside constructors for wxCharType...

Re: String related slow with debugger attached

I'm working with Visual Studio almost exclusively since VS2003 and never had this issue, so i can't give any solution. Things i would try: Check the watch window, check for conditional breakpoints, etc. Build and run on a different PC, maybe the VS installation is just messed up somehow (which happ...

String related slow with debugger attached

We came across an odd issue. I did some searches and found some references, but nothing that explained it or how to work around it. Not sure if I should post in this forum or the Compiler/IDE one. Boiling it down, it seems that anything to do with wxString usage, including parsing folders, wxXMLDocu...

Re: wxAUI + #8945 + OSX + Doc/View

Making this note in case someone searches for the issue too. Looks like these changes just got rolled into the main branch and in a simpler/clearer way. So the patches from #8945 should be obsolete now. https://github.com/wxWidgets/wxWidgets/pull/808 Just finished testing in Windows and they seem to...
