Tbreina, I posted a long reply to your reply, but somehow it got lost. The most important things were: How do I submit bug reports when wxdevcpp detects an exception? And thanking both of you for all the help and support. Maybe the software got confused with three Tonys posting on the same thread. :-)

Installed wx-devcpp under Wine using the web installer. Program runs under Wine and actually builds and executes the target program from F9. I didn't have to change a thing. The interface seemed much nicer and well-behaved under Gnome than under Windows 2000. Only two problems noted. No desktop icon...

When I opened the wxform, the GUI was open, but the component box was not visible. I finally found how to get it in the menus, but it is not always there like in 6.10.2. I also do not like all the floating windows many of which seem to have the property "always on top". It's a pain to keep moving th...

Switched compiler to VS 2005. Added include directory for afxwin.h etc. BTW, I had to use Wordpad to enter the directory in the dev file the first time. When there was no include directory at all, the controls in Project Optins Include were all grayed out. After direct editing, I could add or replac...

Adding the files to an empty project did not help. I upgraded to 7.2.0.2 and was able to import, but am getting errors like: 14 C:\BuyLowSellHigh\stdafx.h afxwin.h: No such file or directory. and 23 C:\BuyLowSellHigh.h expected class-name before '{' token in reference to this code snippet: class CBu...

Request help converting Visual C++ 6.0 projects to wx-devcpp

When I try to import, I get an error that that version of VC++ is not supported. I then downloaded Visual Studio 2005 Express and converted the projects to VS2005 projects (which BTW won't build in VS2005). Even after conversion, I get the error message regarding VC++ version not supported. I suppos...

That did the trick. I had an old version of wxwidgets installed from another application.

OK, I was looking for wxMenu as listed in my wxwidgets book. I stumbled through the example and got it to run. Then I couldn't remember how I got to the component floating box. I exited and ran again only to find that the program (wx-devcpp) crashed every time I tried to open or reopen the project. ...

Newbie problem with example

I'm going through the example, but my display has no Property Editor or dropdown control list as shown in the example. I can use the floating Components box to add the status bar, but there is no wxMenu in the Components box. Is the example out of date? This is build 7.2.0.2 Is there some sort of pa...
