Re: Gauges

doublemax I will check that out. Thx.

ONEEYEMAN, can you point me to an example? wxFormBuilder does not seem to offer that control as one of its options (though I could have missed it). Thx.

Gauges

The UI that I have been building is now complex enough that the user needs to see task completion estimates. I'm not sure of the best way to locate a gauge. I would like to put one at the lower right of the frame. There is a status bar and the best location would be in the right side of this, but, o...

Re: Two Panel GUI ... ongoing

You were right about textctrl and I don't remember why I didn't use it except that I was still too new to wxW to make a good choice.

But, this works perfectly. Thanks once again for your help.

Re: Two Panel GUI ... ongoing

OK. I can do that.

I recall looking at textctrl and deciding on the current implementation. I'll look again before send you some code. :)

Re: Two Panel GUI ... ongoing

Tried this. What happens is that statictext width is fixed but scrollwindow is not. So I can stretch the window to the right and a blank area appears beyond the text. I then set the max width of the scroll window. Big enough so that I can see. Then I increased the max size of the frame. What I get w...

Re: Two Panel GUI ... ongoing

Great. Thx. The first one works. However.....

In the original stack the statictext did word wrapping automatically to the width and responded to resize.

Now, it does not wrap at all. If I set the wrap to a fixed value, it still doesn't wrap. How do I correct this?

Re: Two Panel GUI ... ongoing

I have a sizer because.... wxFB won't allow me to put a statictext or a scollwindow directly into a frame. It gives the attached message where it is requiring a sizer first. No changes that I can make in wxFB AUI settings for the frame will allow me to drop either of these into the frame. The only w...

Re: Two Panel GUI ... ongoing

I may need a little more help with #2. In wxFB the current hierarchy is Frame -> Sizer -> staticText(with VSCROLL). This is the one that doesn't work. I tried this Frame -> Sizer -> ScrolledWindow -> StaticText. FB will not allow me to create this hierarchy. It enforces that ScrolledWindow and Stati...

Two Panel GUI ... ongoing

As I develop this app, I find a few questions along the way.... 1) I am using dataviewlistctrl to display and select lines of text. All working as expected. The widget is constructed as single selection. I would like to go into a mode where it is multi selection and then revert back. I have looked a...

Re: More Qs about wxDataViewListCtrl and its behavior

With FB the note in the GUI file says "do not edit this file". I believe they mean the entire file, so I don't think a way to edit pieces.

I will work with a derived class. Thanks for this and the event explanations.

More Qs about wxDataViewListCtrl and its behavior

There are a few things about this control which I don't yet understand, even after looking at class ref pages and some examples. As always, it is possible, even likely, that I missed something. First, I am using the CB and the extern wxFormBuilder app. For those who know how this works, FB is editin...

Installation Instructions wxWidgets 3.1.3 + Code Blocks 20.03

Steps to get a working installation of Code::Blocks 20.03 w/ MinGW 8.1.0 and wxWidgets 3.1.3 I needed to do this for a new project. I had no experience with wxWidgets, but quite a lot with Code::Blocks. For others like me, this might be useful. I’m running Win 7 Pro. Downloads needed: Code Blocks: D...

Re: Improving my two panel gui

Yes. Fair enough. Originally, I thought just plain lines of text that could be clicked on to show further information. Single selection only. But as I worked on that implementation, I realized that I might want to give the user ability to edit the text. Not anything that needs to be done now, but po...
