Topic: Illegal byte sequence's error on strings in Unicode

Hi ioio, When gcc is parsing your source code it does so assuming a certain charset for the string and character constants in the source code. In the current charset used by gcc ( I think it is UTF-8 ) it expects the special characters to be in Unicode, but your chars are in another charset (probabl...

Thanks for your reply jb_coder. Once I figured out I'm working on a temporary buffer it was clear how to continue from there. A shame that I missed that passage from the docs, thought I read them carefully for sure :wink: I'll give you the Accepted Answer points because leio already sits on a load o...

Hi leio, Thanks for your reply. This is essentially what I was doing (though without the explict call to c_str()), but unfortunately still doesn't work when used as a function. Using the macros you posted everything is fine. The problem seems to be that a wxCharBuffer is returned by wxConvUTF8. That...

Conversion to UTF8 multibyte

Hi all, I need to convert a wxString to UTF8 multibyte regardless the input encoding/the way wx was compiled (Unicode or ANSI mode) and vice versa. Having tried several things that all failed I really need someone holding my hand with this. :wink: The last try looks like this: const char * wxStringT...

Centering a wxGrid on a wxFlexGridSizer

Hi all, I'm not sure if this belongs to "platform related", but I experience different behaviour on Windows and Linux, therefore I'll post this here. I've got some troubles with centering a wxGrid in a wxFlexGridSizer. The code fragment below successfully centers the grid with wxGTK 2.6.2, but fails...

If you are really that keen on being 'bleeding edge' with your software versions, you may want to try a different distribution like Debian Unstable . Be warned, though. Debian Unstable might be, well, unstable. Debian uses Apt as package manager, by the way. Upgrading consist of not more than a simp...

Re: msgfmt not able to handle CR??

Hi,
sdp wrote: STRTABLE{
/* FIRST_STRING*/ _("display this is line 1.\n\n\
display this in line2")
}
Did you try write that in a single line like
STRTABLE{
/* FIRST_STRING*/ _("display this is line 1.\n\ndisplay this in line2")
}
?

Hi, this seems to be triggered by a corrupted Manifest file. It's not very clear how this can happen, so I'm afraid I can be of any specific help here. You may want to try generating a new Manifest and hope the error goes away then. HTH, Chris P.S.: See http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?...

Hi Craig,

I did not test your problems myself, but I did notice you try to pass wxID_OK as a style flag. I think you mixed this up with wxOK, which is the proper style flag to use.

Hope this helps a bit,

Chris

Hi,

that bug has been reported for nearly three years:

I've been running into this, too. The suggested ScrollLines(-1) workaround doesn't work for me neither.

Hi, Yes, you should, but that hasn't anything to do with derivation. In C++, all objects created via "new" must be explicitly deleted via "delete". wxWidgets takes some of that workload off you in some cases. One of those cases is a control (like a wxButton) that has been attached to, say, a wxFrame...

Hi, the above example runs fine with wxMSW 2.6.2 (Unicode) and Visual C++ 7.1. I'm using Unicode in some projects (on Windows and Linux) and never experienced problems related to Unicode.

Ah well, "Benutzerhaltepunkt" in the screenshot (first post) means "user breakpoint". So it seems that's actually a feature of Visual Studio.
Scott is right on this one for sure.

Hi,

I can't reproduce this (using the minimal sample you provided), neither with MinGW 3.4.2 and wxMSW 2.6.1 (ANSI) nor Visual C++ 7.1 and wxMSW 2.6.2 (ANSI).

What's your wx version, how did you compile it (release/debug, ANSI/Unicode, DLL or static libs)?

What does your Makefile look like?
