I think that calling TestDestroy from your SimThread may solve the problem.

This is what the manual says

Re: Bringing up wxWidgets to work with Code::Blocks

Uhm, I'm not an expert, but the message "m_serviceName undeclared" seems to indicate that the wxWidgets-2.6.3/include/wx/msw/dde.h has some problem. I don't have the source code at hand, but try to take a look at lines 103 and 111 in dde.h and see if you can figure out what went wrong. your main.cpp...

Re: wxAUI Tabs - first phase

Good work Ben.

By the way, does the inclusion of wxAUI mean the exclusion of wxFL, the old docking toolkit found in contrib?

wxIFM support probe

I'm currious to see how many people here would like to support development of wxIFM, the current alternative to wxAUI. Both components provide docking windows, and both of them have featuers that the other is missing. wxAUI has a community around http://www.kirix.com/community/wxaui.html whereas wxI...

Most projects that end up on SF simply rot. Although mine will be rotting as well, so there isn't much of a difference in that regard. True, you need a critical mass to get your project rolling. But I believe that wxIFM can get that mass with just a small effort attracting new developers. Using SF ...

I don't know what I will do with my OSS projects at this point. I have not the desire to spend countless hours on them, and a project like wxIFM2 is the kind of projet that requires detication to get anywhere with. One option is to place the codebase on sourceforge and invite more developers onboar...

That explains it. :-)

I thought Delete was an asynchronous signal to tell the thread to terminate, and Wait the only way to join threads.

The documentation for 2.6.2 states that you must call Wait on joinable threads.

How to handle wxThread::Wait() == -1

Hi. I'm trying to delete two joinable threads, but Wait() returns -1 How can I see what this error indicates? Why is the ErrorCode type a void* and not an int? Example code: timer->Delete(); // @todo implicit? timer->Wait(); if (timer->Wait() == (wxThread::ExitCode)-1) TRACE("*** Error waiting for t...

Which IDE's to people tend to use? I'm using CodeBlocks & MinGW for coding and wxGlade for prototyping. I have used DevCpp and wxDevCpp in the past, but find that CodeBlocks work better for me. DevCpp introduced DevPacks as a way to distribute compiled libraries, which I continue to use with CodeBl...

gcc is a must since you do cross platform work, vc is to make windows users more happy downloading (but not using) your application. I think the effort is better spent adding features and removing bugs, than by optimizing download time. Use the 20-80 rule: Spend 20% of the time needed to achive mini...

May I suggest this FAQ is merged into http://www.wxwidgets.org/wiki/index.php/WxSocket This will have two bennefits: 1) Less confusion because there is only one source for wxSocket info 2) Faster to read because you don't have to go through the entire thread to make sure you did not miss some import...

Also, you might find the patches section inter...
