Hi Finally found a solution - kind of. // Create base panel. m_basePanel = new wxPanel( itemFrame1, ID_PANEL1, wxDefaultPosition, wxDefaultSize, wxNO_BORDER|wxTAB_TRAVERSAL ); //Select fixed width font m_basePanel->SetFont(wxFont(12, wxSWISS, wxNORMAL, wxNORMAL, false, _T("Fixedsys"))); itemBoxSizer...

Thanks David I tried using sizers but it was proving to impractical for terminal emulation. (Use them for all other apps though). I tried your other two suggestions SetSize and SetSizeHints - both had no effect. Using GetCharWidth produces a panel slightly larger then expected maybe by about 10-15%....

Thanks for the reply Belgabor. Setting my font like this: m_basePanel->SetFont(wxFont(12, wxSWISS, wxNORMAL, wxNORMAL, false, _T("Fixedsys"))); I've tried calling GetTextExtent() for m_basePanel or any new panel - no difference. I've also tried this: wxStaticText* itemStaticText4 = new wxStaticText(...

terminal emulator

Hi I need to write a quick and dirty terminal emulator app. Can't use sizers. I'm planning to emulate ansi (80*24). I currently use putty but for various reasons I need my own one. Telnet session fine, nice and quick but having a problem with screen layout. I'm looking for a quick way to create a wi...

Eran I am using wx 2.6.3 (on win XP) with mysql 5.0. Fails every time I click the "Generate" button. (Both my compiled version and the downloaded exe.) I didn't understand the problem - although it fails on a databaselayer function I'm pretty confident thats not the issue. The exception it throws is...

Thanks David That worked beautifully. Here is the code in case anybody is interested. void newTextCtrl::SetMaxLength(unsigned long len) { wxTextCtrl::SetMaxLength(len); int x,y; GetTextExtent(_T("ABCDEabcde"),&x,&y); //Gets Width of string SetSizeHints(((x/10)*(len+2)),-1); // Get average character ...

Thanks phlox81

I understand what SetMaxLength does. I'm trying to get a textctrl size to reflect the number of characters allowed (the max length).

I have 100's of textctrls in my app. I'm looking for a way to avoid working out
the length each one needs to be.

Thanks again

Paul

Resize wxTextCtrl

Hi I'm trying to get a textctrl size to reflect the number of characters allowed (the max length). So I'm trying to resize a wxTextCtrl after it has been created. I want to set the size of the client area according to wxTextCrtl::SetMaxLength(). Basically in my new class newTextCtrl (derived from wx...
