Hey Florianx, Well when you're working with the stretch capability of sizers, there's two factors you need to take into account. Those would be the second and third parameters to the Add function. The second parameter dictates if the control can stretch in the direction of the sizer's orientation . ...

Try this:

Code: Select all

wxString path = "c:\\whatever.xml";
path = wxURL::ConvertToValidURI(path)
wxURL url(path);
wxInputStream *data;
data = url.GetInputStream();
That may not solve the problem but I read somewhere that you should call ConvertToValid first.

Congratulations. I'm glad you got it working. Keep in mind though that between wx upgrades your project settings will change so you should always go back and copy one of the samples between upgrades (usually major).

Fox?

Has anyone heard of Fox Toolkit? http://www.fox-toolkit.org/

It looks a lot like wx except not as extensive, but I was wondering if anyone had any experience with it and how it ranked in comparison to wx in your opinion.

// Show the modal dialog.. this function blocks
modal->ShowModal();
// After they push "OK" on modal and the OK button calls Hide();

It was a blasted bug in wx. I believe I've got it. in src\common\url.cpp I altered the code to be the following: // When we use a proxy, we have to pass the whole URL to it. wxInputStream *the_i_stream; if (!m_useProxy) { the_i_stream = m_protocol->GetInputStream(m_url); } else { wxString fullPath =...

Sure,

goto = {"http://www.mycustomcd.com/index.php"}

and proxyStr = {"192.168.1.101:80"}

My ip is 192.168.1.102.

Hmm, even though I think my code is right, something is still awry. Here's what I'm using: wxInputStream *data; // wxURL::SetDefaultProxy(proxyStr); wxURL url2(goTo); // goto is the full url to a php script url2.SetProxy(proxyStr); //proxy string is in the format proxyServer:port data = url2.GetInpu...

That doesn't look so much like an error, as a warning? I'd imagine the fix may involve typcasting, but does this warning actually stop the compilation?

Proxy Server with wxURL

In my application I use wxURL to access the internet and retrieve information from a web page. The problem is, it doesn't work from behind my user's proxy server. How would I go about getting around this? Is it as simple as changing my url from www.wxforum.org to www.wxforum.org:proxyPort ? Thanks f...

Child Threads Writing to Parent's Control

Has anyone run into this bug before?
C:\wxWidgets-2.6.1\src\msw\textctrl.cpp(122): assert "m_count == -1" failed: wrong initial m_updatesCount value [in child thread]
I keep getting this assertion when trying to write to a wxTextCtrl in my top level window from a child thread.
