modularity and XRC

Hi Jorg! Both modularity and compatibility with XRC are important. I would like your XML format to be able to parse XRC as well - for GUI predefinitions. The ability to include other documents of the same format or XRC resources in some way would be a great bonus! Something like a <include resource=...

Hello there,

If you want to have your controls taking fixed proportions of your frame, you should use sizers.

Popular software unsuspectedly using wxWidgets

I just found this out yesterday: the internet's most popular podcasting client program, iPodder, seems to be developed - at least at some point - using wxWidgets. I just installed it and checked under the installation folder under windows - there is a wxWidgets 2.5.3 runtime in there, as well as XRC...

As this doesn't sound like a native control (none that I know of in Win32 or GTK), some hacking might be in order. Maybe inheriting from wxChoice? In any case, you'll probably need to go through the source in order to figure out how to parent checkboxes to lines of a combobox. Doesn't sound too simp...

Hi there... I once did something similar (it just asked the user a couple of questions through wxMessageBoxes, did it's thing and exited), but did not use wxExit(), nor did I require the creation of a wxWindow. My solution was simply to have my overloaded OnInit() return false instead of true. The b...

IMHO the wx site DESPERATELY needs a new layout - the current one is, i must admit, cluttered and Frames arent friendly to some browsers (i personally loathe frames), and the documentation doesn't have some handy functions (like search, which i managed to compensate (slightly) with my firefox searc...

Personally, I prefer to use static linking in my applications. This does not mean, however, that it would be a bad idea to make a "wxWidgets runtime" available at the official site. I can guess it would have the following consequences: 1 - Force all developers who adopted wxWidgets to make shared/dy...

Hi there,

wxWidgets does bring a "graphics kit". Check ot the wxArtProvider class for this.

Otherwise, use your own resources by invoking the wxBITMAP and/or wxICON macros, like lowjoel suggests.

Take a look in these manual pages:
Bitmaps and icons overview
wxImage

Have fun with wxWidgets!

Hi! This piece of code can nicely be used in home-made parsers... although there is something I don't quite understand. Why use 10 pointers to wxStrings as argument, instead of just passing a reference to a (resisable) wxArrayString - which extends the maximum number of extractable tokens from 10 to...

Hi! Whatever you die hard fans say, but I believe, if there was just dll, lib, and cpp/h files to just copy into the project and a hello world wizard. It would attract atleast thousands of MFC programmer to switch to wxWidgets. That may be true for the windows people. Sure we could do release a pre...

I would suggest inheriting from wxListCtrl and giving your class it's own wxMouseEvents. Feel free to post your working code in the Code Dump.

I disagree, and actually think that wxWidgets should implement quite the opposite by making tabbed document interface - the wxGTK way - a cross-platform MDI replacement standard also for wxMSW. Taking wxMDIBook a step further, now that would be something nice...

Hi!
I believe you can disable it through a constructor style of wxMDIParentFrame... wxFRAME_NO_WINDOW_MENU if I'm not mistaken.
Take another look in the docs to be sure.
