I recommend letting wxConfig decide where to store the file, based on the platform. Also, wxConfig cannot safely store binary data.

You may need to still process window events.

Use ::wxSafeYield() in your loop.

I'm may be wrong, but replace the "delete dlgAbout" call with:

Code: Select all

dlgAbout->EndModal(wxID_OK|wxID_CANCEL) 
dlgAbout->Destroy()
which will free the memory correctly for you.

Umm... where did you place the code? Place it at the top of MyApp::OnInit method. bool MyApp::OnInit() { wxXmlResource::Get()->InitAllHandlers(); ::wxInitAllImageHandlers(); // ... rest of method } Also, I'm not sure if it handles JPGs (I know it does handle JPEGs). I personally use PNGs, XPMs, or B...

#1. Yes, pretty much
#2. Yes, of course, wxThread exists, and wxThreadHelper (GUI threading friendly)
#3. I don't understand that statement, "draw in a window of a foreign application"?
#4. I prefer and use SQLite with wxSqlite3

Search around to find out about #4?

To clarify, Strati, all the code I proposed was in relation to "just started app" code techniques; without using OnIdle. Better/different ways to detect when the application has fully started.

Yes, I exhausted the abilities of the above code. I have more than a hundred clients, so I was able to get plenty of feedback. Here is how I resolved it.

In addition to the proposed wxActivateEvent, I also use a wxTimer, start it during the first wxActivateEvent, then 5 secs (or whatever) after the event I do the "app started" code.

I only want to get a list of IP addresses. With the help of the platform specific compiler directives, I decided to use the std socket libs for each platform (mac and win32).

You can try using wxActivateEvent, then set a flag, so that the code only executes the first time the main window is activated

I may not be sure what you're actually trying to propose, but that just gives undesired results.

Get Local IP Address

I am having difficulty getting a local IP address.

I currently use the code suggested here:
http://wiki.wxwidgets.org/Getting_IP_Address_Of_Host

However, clients are getting mixed results.

Can someone give me a better way of getting local IP addresses, using wxWidgets.

What I would do is, subclass wxTextCtrl, then override wxWindow::SetFocus(). SetFocus is called when focus is set and "killed". It is virtual so it is "override-ready". http://docs.wxwidgets.org/stable/wx_wxwindow.html#wxwindowsetfocus Then use wxWindow::FindFocus() within the method to see if your/...
