How to get special directories on Windows (Desktop etc)

Hi all,

in Windows explorer, the root directory is Desktop, and under that is My Computer, Network Places, etc. However, wxGenericDirCtrl only displays C: D:. If I'm writing my own file ctrl, how can I obtain and traverse these special directories?

Many thanks

Improving wxFileType under Windows

Hi all, I'm using wxFileType etc to get the icons for file types based on their extension. This works fairly well, but doesn't seem to be able to get the icons for every type of file, e.g. PDF. I noticed that wxGenericDirCtrl also fails to find the icon for PDFs. So it tried using SHGetFileInfo, whi...

custom wxHtmlImageCell

Hi all, I would like to use wxHTML, but with images which are generated at run-time. Since wxHtmlImageCell only gets images from .GIF files etc, I imagine that I'll need to make my own tag handler. Has anyone else tried this? Can anyone offer any advice or examples before I jump in? Many thanks in a...

Making my library into a wxWidgets component

Hi all, For my project I have written a nice little publish/subscribe event library with a hierarchical name space (like CrystalSpace I think) For example, a class can subscribe to message "liquidpcb.tools.switchto". Then, when a message is generated somewhere in the system like "liquidpcb.tools.swi...

Thanks Infinity_77, That's pretty helpful. So, is this correct: Min and Max size are used when it's the outer window whose size is being set externally (for example by the user dragging it). The Min size prevents the user making the window smaller than that. Similarly with Max size. Best size is use...

Difference between max size, best size and min size ?

Hi all, Reading about sizers ... a windows seems to have a min size, best size and max size. Min and max size seem to be pretty obvious, what's exactly is the point of the best size? My guess would be that, if there's plenty of room available, then don't make it bigger than the best size. In which c...

If anyone's interested, this problem seems to happen on 2.8.8, but not on 2.8.4.

I have tried exactly the same sequence to compile the samples, and it works on one, but not on the other.

I am using VC 2008 (9.0).

wxUSE_CRASHREPORT requires wxUSE_ON_FATAL_EXCEPTION

I guess I should post an image that shows some wxWidgets too! This is what the file dialog will look like (eventually). You can see it has some extra power features, like a list of recently used directories. One click takes you to any part of them. The file filters can be toggled on and off. As you ...
