Re: wxHTMLHelpController

There is indeed no full HTML support in wx 2.8. Note that if you target ubuntu specifically, you can statically link in wxWidgets 2.9, which then leaves users to install WebKit-GTK and other dependencies, but does not force them to install wx 2.9. If you target more than one distribution, though, it...

Re: "memory:about.html" failed to load "default.css"

Which OS?

But wxWebView questions are usually better asked on the mailing list, since that's where Steve Lamerton, the author of this part of wxWebView, hangs

Re: wxHTMLHelpController

wxHTML is not a full HTML render engine, it's just a rich text control based on a subset of HTML.
If you need a full render engine, the best strategy is to upgrade to wxWidgets 2.9 and use wxWebView

Re: Tool Tip does not show on MAC OSX

I think wxListCtrl is not a native control, this may be missing from the generic implementation maybe. If this can be reproduced in a small platform, and especially shown to behave differently from OS to OS, this is a case for bug report

No that's not directly possible. Though you can write a portable core in standard C++, and then bind this core to the various toolkits you target

Re: constant global strings

I'm not sure your compiler will know your files are windows-1252. I don't think windows-1252 has any special characteristics that allows an application to detect it. You can tell by opening a debugger and inspecting the individual bytes of the string what happened. Quite probably your compiler just ...

Re: Context Menu does not show Icons

I believe this is a setting in gnome, gnome decided to remove icons from menus (and apparently unity borrowed that from them). If you re-enable them system-wide they should appear

Re: display html5 page in the application

wxWebView can do it... except on Windows < 8. Since this control uses Internet Explorer on Windows, and IE versions prior to 10 have limited to no HTML 5 support (well you may get lucky and get sufficient HTML5 support from IE9, but in IE < 9 forget about it, HTML5 won't work)

Re: wxComboBox text control is larger than wxComboBox

I think it's just that the native GTK theme has large combos. I don't think it's a bug, and I don't think you can force the control to be smaller than what the GTK theme wants it to be. Your best bet is to either accept the GTK theme you are using, or find another theme where widgets are more compact

Re: Cross platform component

You are a little vague, so I'm not sure i understood correctly what you want. But I don't think you can have a single code base provide Qt, MFC, WinForms, Cocoa... all at the same time. That being said, it is possible to have a reusable core that can then be shared by various thin frontends (one for...

Re: Struggling to get the wxWidgets sample to compile...

I believe you left the Xcode default compiler, which is Clang (sometimes called "Apple LLVM compiler" I think in Xcode). Select a GCC compiler instead, that's more compatible with wxWidgets.

Re: 'Undefined symbols for architecture i386' linking under

For future reference, you probably needed flags "-liconv -framework OpenGL"

Re: constant global strings

Using wxChar* does not dictate any encoding. Let's say that in your configuration, wxChar* is a typedef to wchar_t*. This just means that each character will be 16-bits (or 32-bits, depending on systems) wide. Which encoding is used will typically depend on the encoding you use for the source file, ...

Re: New to wxWidgets & Fedora Linux

I do not use NetBeans so I cannot give you specifics. But on unix systems, you definitely need to take a look at wx-config ( http://wiki.wxwidgets.org/Wx-Config ). This is the utility that will tell you the flags you need Typically you add `wx-config --cxxflags` to compiler flags, and `wx-config --l...
