maybe you still have to set USE_ODBC=1 in setup.h. I've not yet had the time to try, but I would anyway have tried that. Apart from that, ODBC support in wxWidgets itself is unmaintained and will be removed from the next version. Maybe you should check wxDatabaseLayer. Hmm, didn't know that... What...

ODBC example doesn't compile on Win64?

Does the wxWidgets verson contain errors in the nmake files? I compiled wxWidgets on Vista64 with Visual Studio 2005 like this: Statically linked (unicode yn/debug yn): done: C:\wxWidgets-2.8.10\build\msw>nmake -f makefile.vc MONOLITHIC=0 SHARED=0 BUILD=debug USE_OPENGL=0 USE_ODBC=1 UNICODE=0 USE_EX...

Yes I do.
Hm, I installed the Linux version of wxWidgets with apt-get.

Does that mean that the Linux-version is dynamically linked by default ?

So it will miss the wxWidgets runtime on Linux, if it isn't installed?

wxWidgets Executable Size

Hi! I have a wxWidgets application. Basically, what it does is opening a OpenFile Dialog box and then writing the filename and path into a config file. Now, I now that the executable size of wxWidgets is supposed to be rather big. But I compiled my application on Windows, where it gets 4.5 MB big, a...

Async process execute

Question: I'm trying to asynchronously execute a process: I use: void MainFrame::DoAsyncExec(const wxString& cmd) { wxProcess* process = new wxProcess ; long m_pidLast = wxExecute(cmd, wxEXEC_ASYNC, process); } Now, this works for just a filename. If I want to LD_PRELOAD a shared library, I cannot p...

As for centering the dialog, I believe some OS's will put them where they want even if you ask them otherwise. I presume you've tried Centre()? Hope that helps, Jim Yes, i tried Centre() and several other ways, but it seems that the OpenFile dialog just doesn't want to be in the centre - in all OS'...

Hi! I have a problem with wxSplash. The problem is that I have a splash screen, and I have a OpenFile dialog that opens right when you start the application. How can I make the OpenFile dialog wait until the splash screen has disappeared? Additionally, while I'm on it, how can i center the OpenFile ...

You're searching for a help file, a data file. You currently have chosen to store this in a subdir of your executable's dir, but this is not a standard, or even a particularly sensible, place for it to be. In Linux, the normal place for data is in /usr/local/share/appname if you do a standard confi...

wxGetCwd() is bad, there is no guarantee that the current working directory is the path to your executable. Like already suggested, use wxStandardPaths::GetExecutablePath Oh, yes, THANKS! Now i got a more decent version: std::wstring GetCurrentWorkingDirectory() { wxString wxstrCurrentWorkingDirect...

Re: wxGetCwd

So I need to get the current working directory of the executable, add /help/index.htm, and then pass this to the browser call. If your want add /help/index.htm to that path, I think you are not looking for the current working directory, but for the path of your executable, which can be different. I...

Hi, If you run your app from a terminal (cd /root/Desktop/myprogram/ && ./myprog) then wxGetcwd() should work, as you will have just set the cwd. If you run your app from a desktop shortcut, though, there's no reason why it should work correctly, unless the shortcut itself sets the cwd (as some all...

No, it's not a link, it's a directory, the same directory as in Gnome.
