What makefile? What OS? What compiler?
I'd think it would be a relatively simple search for wxmswXX lib and replace the number with 29. :)

Imagebrowse component

Hi guys I am looking for a component - or alternatively a way to make a similar component - like the attached picture. It works sort of like a bmpcombobox (I think) when clicking on the first two arrows: the image changes to next/previous. However, clicking the third button makes a popupwindow, with...

Hehe! Should have guessed. :)

Of course, I should have mentioned wxPerl. :wink:

Use the best tools on each platform. I am writing code for both Linux and Windows - and wouldn't dream of using anything other than Visual Studio on Windows. VC is excellent, and so is GCC (on Linux). But, of course, you can't really go wrong with CodeBlocks or CodeLite. I just see no reason to - VS...

If you like Perl, then maybe you like Python?
Try wxPython, then. :)

I know what you mean. :)

Did you come across POCO?
Seems to have some nice libraries.
Check it out - it's got database library too. (I kind of forgot it had) :)

True... it is not part of the widget but that doesn't stop other non-widgets class to be included in the project (wxArray, wxString, wxFile*, wxSock*, wxXml*, wxThread*, etc). Those are support classes, and you know it. Can't compare it to wxODBC. :wink: Nothing against the idea but if this is what...

It's a good thing that database support is being dropped. WxWidgets should concentrate on Widgets. :) The wxWidgets team also realized that it could not do everything and that support for a cross-platform database API was beyond the scope and focus of the project so that its old wxODBC database conn...

Please do this in your installer - because you need to clean up in a corresponding uninstaller.
You should remove all traces of your application, and that includes any registry entries.

Look for uninitialized vars or arrays out of bounds. This is a typical surviving the release build situation - which is why I always do my development in both modes. Sometimes something breaks something in either mode. It's so much easier catching it while you know what happened. (Or have a solid cl...

Well, I happen to think that RTFM can be very helpful ;) But, I did mention that if he posted the code he'd get likely some help. I know I'd look at it. I'm just no good at speculating what might be wrong or going on without much more to go on than long config keys return nothing which then became ...
