Hi Chris, Something you might like to consider is keeping the UI in cocoa for the OSX build. I have looked at developing a true mac UI (for shrinkwrapped s/w) in wx and concluded that at the moment it would be almost impossible. Of course this will depend on what sort of user experience you want and...

Hi, I think what you might need to do is to use a unicode build of WX. Then for symbols like this you will just need to add the correct unicode character or string and it will all just work. The lambda character, for example, has it's own unique code in unicode. Moving an application to Unicode can ...

Hi

Following on from Jorg - I really recommend buying the book. It is not expensive and very good.

Hi, You might like to look at boost as this has support for the the same things. Looking at the web-page you posted this library predates the inclusion of signals/slots into boost. I personally would use boost over other libraries as it is a very rich set of additions that are very widely used, wide...

Hi, PSD is not a secret format - though bits of it (the more recent additions) are undocumented by Adobe. If I remember correctly Adobe publishes the file format for Photoshop 4. Most programs that read photoshop files read just the preview - that is the photoshop file generally contains a single bi...

If you step out of wx and use carbon you can probably do it. In Carbon (on which wxMac is based) you can add your own filter functions to the standard dialog functions - I am fairly sure that you will be able to accomplish this. However it seems something of a hellish task.

Hi, The wxCocoa project has been resumed and there has been a fair amount of activity on it recently, David Elliot has submitted a fair number of changes to the project. If you want to enquire about the status and the roadmap of the wxCocoa project you are probably best subscribing to the wx develop...

Hi - I would recommend against ZeroLink - it generally does not work very well at all.

wxCocoa is being actively developed again but it is probably not at a stage where you could ship product against it.

For me one of the interesting things is what is happened on OSX. The applications shipped by Apple are almost entirely skinned and what is a native OSX interface has changed entirely. Check out also what an app like iTunes looks like on windows as well as the Mac - not that much is not skinned there...

Hi,

I would be really interested to hear about your approach to transition - are you transitioning existing projects, or working on a new one?

Sorry - bit of a copy/paste problem making. I meant to say that the programming lead for wxMac is Steffan Csomor - probably the best thing for you to do is to e-mail him directly. You can reach him at csomor at advancedconcepts.ch (Steffan is a really nice chap) I would also be very interested in ta...

Hi, My understanding is that the current plan is to take the wxMac (which is carbon) and port that to cocoa (lifting things from wxCocoa), rather than working on the wxCocoa branch. The reason for this is that the wxMac build is far more advanced than the wxCocoa build. i.e. it is quite possible to ...

I have too been looking at Qt and wx. As I develop on the Mac platform my angle is different. As far as the Mac goes wx looks like the only one with a chance of producing a good Mac interface - when I last looked at Qt it did not deliver - the Mac UI was just wrong - though I have heard that Trollte...

Hi

I would recommend the book http://www.wxwidgets.org/docs/book/. It is very good and covers a lot. It is an inexpensive way to learn about wx.
