Re: Use wxFileDialog in wxFormbuilder (?)

Sorry I did not see these replies! I managed to figure out how to fix the width of wxFilePickerctrl by clicking wxEXPAND in the flags of sizeritembase. And, thanks for the suggestion, Kvaz1r, but the 8th item is wxFilePickerctrl, not wxFileDialog but, as I note, I managed to fix my issue with wxFile...

Use wxFileDialog in wxFormbuilder (?)

I know this is a total newb question but I have searched and searched. I am learning wxWidgets with c++. My application needs a file selection and the wxFilePickerctrl filename field is too small and (I think) I can't make it any bigger. Searches to make it bigger have said you can't so try wxFileDi...

Nevertheless, when my replies are posted, you'll see I was able to get it to work following the "make libraries from the DOS shell" m...

Re: Windows/Msys2 samples/minimal.exe give segmentation fault

Thank you so much for the reply! I will give that a try. I guess I am old school in thinking that if software has a guide and you use the guide it should work the way the guide says. I had tried to follow the way you suggested (though perhaps not exactly so I'll try again). In the interim in docs/ms...
