hi there! i'm trying to implement some launching functionality into one of my applications, but, helas, windows7 won't let me execute any external app - no way, really... the very odd thing is: i can't even execute them in the command prompt itself! if i cd to the respective dir and then try to run ...

hi thracian! sry for the late response. i'm not coming over here regularly atm... as for your "undefined reference" problem: this is exactly why i tried to modify the code provided by mandrav (as you have read in the thread). it MIGHT be that this is due to the location of the wxirrlicht-files. so, ...

as far as i can tell, it is NOT possible to change the font of a wxBusyInfo, at least not without changes in the framework base. if you absolutely need a certain font, i'd suggest deriving a custom dialog from wxDialog and design it for your special needs...

hmmm, what exactly do you mean by "unknown"? an abstract answer could sound like this: like in the real world, where you can take away an egg out of a row without knowing its exact position, it MIGHT be possible to remove a seperator from a wxToolbar, IF you can state an exact search process in form...

Finally found something helpful in the Irrlicht-forums: http://irrlicht.sourceforge.net/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=15338&highlight=wxwidgets I'd have attached the archive to this post, but then thought it might offend mandrav's copyright. So I just link to his post. In case the archive should be removed...

[UPDATED] wxIrrlicht?

Hi there! I've got a little problem: I want to use the Irrlicht engine along with wxWidgets. Now, before I start writing an implementation myself, I thought having a look at the forum might be worth an effort. Well, I was successful in finding related topics mentioning "wxIrrlicht". Unfortunately, I...

just an idea, because i had similar mysterious problems: could it be that you have disabled exception handling for the compiler/linker by setting the -fnoexceptions flag (i think it's a compiler flag)? that led to unexplainable compiler/linker errors until i switched the flag to -fexceptions... then...

first things first, so: i'll leave the response to the theoretic questions to the pros (though i think that, if you stick to wxWidgets and don't do anything that is marked in the docs as not fully implemented, you shouldn't run into portability issues). to your custom control and its problem: bool C...

i'm not quite sure if i understand you correctly, but if you mean what i think you mean, your prob and solution could be outlined like this: 1. problem: you have a mainframe, but you want the app to wait for user input (e.g. a password, a button click...) and then decide wether to display the mainFr...

hmm, sounds kinda complicated. first thought would be to 1. use wxSystemSettings::GetMetric to determine the screen size 2. do a collision detection in EVT_LEFT_UP 3. if outside the dialog but inside the screen (well, it must be inside the screen area, but as dialog's position may vary, i think it m...
