Re: Many beginner questions, trying to learn wxWidgets

Use wxID_CLOSE, but you will need an additional event handler for that. The key event will not get automatically mapped to the wxEVT_CLOSE event. Two questions: According to the docs and auto-complete, there is no wxEVT_CLOSE , instead there is wxEVT_CLOSE_WINDOW . Does this mean that the latter is...

Re: Many beginner questions, trying to learn wxWidgets

Other ways would be to have a menu entry with an accelerator or a separate wxAcceleratorTable assigned to the frame. I tried this however I don't know what ID I'm supposed to use for the Close button on the titlebar. I tried wxID_CLOSE and wxID_CLOSE_FRAME , as in the following code: const std::vec...

wxWidgets docs: Hello World example (pedantry)

I apologize in advance if this was discussed before; I did a quick search before, and didn't find anything pertaining to this topic. There are memory leaks in the latest 3.1.1 Hello World example code: bool MyApp::OnInit() { MyFrame *frame = new MyFrame(); frame->Show(true); return true; } In the co...
