Re: Resize Panel after hiding wxStaticBoxSizer

Are the two wxStaticBoxSizers contained in another sizer (either vertical or horizontal box sizer, orientation doesn't matter)? Another approach is to use the new wxSimpleBook control, which is mean to change pages like a wxNoteook, but without using tabs at all, and only switching pages internally ...

Subversion to Git Migration - SVN Going Read-Only

Starting on Friday, Feb 20th at 11PM UTC, the wxWidgets SVN repository will be switched to read-only mode. Commits will no longer made to the wxWidgets SVN repository at that time, and we will begin making commits directly to the new git repositories instead. The git repositories hosted at GitHub , ...

Re: wxAUI happiness

As far as I've read, this specific wxWidgets feature is still under development, by a single person? Well, it's always "in development", but it's included in both wxWidgets 2.8 and 3.0, and thus is considered "stable", but it's never quite been as solid as most other wxWidgets components. It's know...

Re: wxFlexGridSizer items don't expand

Proportion controls the size of a sizer item in the direction correlating to the main orientation of the box sizer. In this case, your static box sizer is wxHORIZONTAL, so proportion refers to the horizontal size while the flags (wxEXPAND) controls the vertical size. The proportion you set on the wx...

Re: Differences with modal dialogs

I would rather look for alternative ways to handle any processing you have in your idle event handler, and moving it to something more reliable, like a timer. Using idle events is rarely the appropriate choice. What are you processing in your idle event handler? If that route doesn't appeal to you, ...

Re: How to contribute to wxPython Phoenix?

The source code is actually mirrored to GitHub: https://github.com/wxWidgets/Phoenix (though patches aren't handled through GitHub)

Of course, you'd have to actually jump on the relevant wxPython mailing lists to get involved. Most wxPython devs aren't regulars on these forums.

Re: What software update mechanisms are currently used?

WebUpdate was written by Francesco Montorsi, who has historically been highly involved in wxWidgets core development. However, he did mention taking an extended break to work on his PhD just over two years ago. I don't doubt it's still a quality component, but on the other hand, most application upd...

Re: Visual Studio 2015 Preview

I think there's been some work on this in the development version of wxWidgets (3.1+). Unfortunately SVN is down, but you should give the master branch on GitHub a shot, and see how that goes: https://github.com/wxWidgets/wxWidgets

Re: transparency in toolbar buttons (windows and linux)

This used to be a bigger problem back with Windows 98, but generally speaking, for Windows XP and above, it should work just fine using PNG alpha transparency. I don't mention Linux or OS X because I've honestly never had a problem or seen any issues with using PNG alpha transparency in toolbar icon...

Re: Name package

It's just a convenient, shorter naming scheme, and actually, wxWidgets doesn't entirely control the package name used with most linux distributions.

Re: Is there a charting library; proposed or in development?

Some wxWidgets users like to use wxMathPlot or PLplot . Additionally, there's no end to extremely well designed and tested Javascript-based plotting libraries that can be used with wxWebView. Traditionally, plotting libraries have never been something included in GUI toolkits, and likely never will ...

Re: Sum some days to wxDateTime Object

You can use several built-in operators between wxDateTime and wxTimeSpan.
