wxDragImage will be useful for you too then. I used it pretty extensively in a project for my advisor...wonder if I can post it... Not really for me though, as it deals with vector graphics only from what I can tell. I need to be able to drag,click,and otherwise play with bitmap images. I think I've...

Don't mislead my words. This is like someone telling me to learn C before C++. Just stupid IMO. C++ is a superset of C. So, knowing C is kinda a pre-req of C++. But no need to do C then C++. I agree with you there. I'm not trying to mislead your words. I'm a graduate student, so it's obvious that I...

you mean, I should look at the implementation of wxBitmapButton ? I'll try thiis and let you know what I can learn with that ! Yeah...I was also thinking... wxButton is a wxWindow, which you can place new elements into. So you could (I think) add a sizer and sub-elements to a wxButton. Should work ...

It's an optimization to not free large pieces of memory on shutdown. When you need, for example, 250 mb of memory for some difficult calculation and you're program will shutdown when the calculation is done. It will be faster to let the OS clean it up. Why ? Because if the memory is swapped out, an...

Trying to bring discussion in here...

VC and XCode. I thought about putting a bakefile together (and I need DevCpp support as well). Maybe I'll have some time later this week... the comments are shurely adequate, but a short documentation, or a READ ME would be very fine. Good point. For now the sample app helps a little. For the longe...

What about a technology you might use? Or a technology that parallels one you are working with? Or a technology that you don't want to use, but want to understand as it might offer insight to what you are working on? Or perhaps a technology that is foundational to other concepts? Personally I wont b...

Re: Blob support & dbtest build

I'm working on actually adding the interface to make blob support happen. The sample has DB fields for blobs, but never does anything with them. I'll remedy this shortly... CKO Hello, I use WX 2.5.2 (usually the latest from CVS) on Windows, with STL + IOS. I've built the libs using MSYS tools. How c...

wxCURL

I just wanted to put some comments in here for people interested in using wxCURL. This may actually be the beginning of a READ ME. :) A.) Use the CVS and not .ZIP version posted on the site. CVS will be updated a lot more often. I'll try to put a new version of the .ZIP up soon. B.) I'm going to swi...

Right. What I meant was that you could use wxBitmapButton as a means to better understanding how to do this. And the bitmaps and text on buttons can be changed dynamically now. No modification needed. Thanks for your help, The probleme in my case is that Data are dynamic: I can't put all the data in...

Re: [wxwidgets] create a complex button

Take a look at the implementation for wxBitmapButton...it is a custom button derived from wxButton. Theoretically you can derive from wxButton and have your own custom control. CKO I need to create a complex button, I mean a button which can have several lines, this line containing different kind of...

Re: User & password authentification on wxURL btw. wxPro

Yes. Use something other than wxURL (wxCURL ( http://sf.net/projects/wxcurl/ ) springs to mind...because I implemented it just for doing things like this). That will work for FTP, but not HTTP. wxWidgets HTTP get mechanism isn't that smart. Different web-pages use different mechanisms for handling u...

I just can't believe there is no simple procedure to do such a simple task, I'm kinda disappointed :? No sense in being disapointed. If it so important, then it should be a priority. Write a function like this (I'm not saying it works or is right...just a first thought on my own): size_t GetAllData...

Re: XML functions?

Casey - wasn't there a wxwidgets wrapper around libxml posted a while back? There is http://pmade.org/software/xmlwrapp/ but that doesn't seem to be wxWidgets specific. I've seen mention of wxmlccwrap, on the list archive, but don't know what it is, and Google doesn't tell me anything. So, I suspec...
