Thanks for your suggestions! I'm quite sure it's "wx/generic/logg.cpp" (I think it stands for Log GUI but I may be wrong). Here's the relevant passage: wxLogDialog::wxLogDialog(wxWindow *parent, const wxArrayString& messages, const wxArrayInt& severity, const wxArrayLong& times, const wxString& capt...

Fast, no-frills XML editor

Here's a first Alpha of the project I've been working on recently. Many thanks to all who have replied to my questions!

http://xml-copy-editor.sourceforge.net

(The installer is Windows only for now, but the source should compile elsewhere without too much trouble.)

Error dialog

The file <wx/generic/logg.cpp> defines an excellent wxLogDialog class that is used by many of the wxW classes to report errors. Is it possible to use this dialog in our own applications? <wx/generic/logg.h> does not mention this class, and I can't seem to find any examples online. I'd be very gratef...

Hm, std::string is not supporting UNICODE right now, and it probably will be a long time, until it does. wxWidgets supports UNICODE, and since the std::string class is not the best of STL, I wouldn't bet on a replacement of wxString with std::string. phlox phlox, I've just read your message and I d...

This doesn't address the issue of encodings, especially if you're using the Unicode build. Just in case you're thinking of using it, the following should work: // Unicode wxString to std::string wxString ws = _T("..."); std::string s = ws.mb_str(wxConvUTF8); // std::string to Unicode wxString std::s...

Muhammad, this is a very rushed reply. I think you need to enable XP themes. Just add the following include to your .rc file:

Code: Select all

#include "wx/msw/wx.rc"
I hope this works!

Icons in status bar

How can I ensure that the background of a wxStaticBitmap resting on top of a status bar is transparent? The Windows statbar sample uses miniature xpm files that work fine, but how can I reproduce this effect with standard .bmp files? Would it be possible to use .png images instead (or would they los...

Datagenn, one thing you could consider is passing a full path (directory + filename) to CreateTempFileName(). The function will identify a new filename in the same directory.

I may be wrong, but I don't think there is a reliable route that does not use automation. *.ppt documents are binary files that cannot normally be decoded by any program other than PowerPoint. It's much the same as *.doc files: it's possible to hack the basic structure (they all start with a four-by...

dsk, you could consider automating PowerPoint to do this. Just check out the oleauto sample. The sample is for Excel, but Word, IE, PowerPoint all permit access in this way. You just need to create an application object (just use "PowerPoint.Application" instead of "Excel.Application") and then you ...

rz is making an important point here. wxListCtrl lacks a widely used property of the Win32 ListView control in report mode. (Win32 even offers convenience functions for checking and unchecking items.) I wrote my own wrapper for a Win32 ListView a while back (before I discovered wxWidgets!) and it's ...
